MANY months of beta testing, Team Dakota have announced that Project Spark on both Windows 8 and Xbox One platforms will be leaving its beta testing phase and entering full release. The game will be officially releasing around the world from October 7th 2014 as a free downloadable title, although a special “Starter Pack” to be made available through retail outlets at launch in each respective country.

First unveiled during the Microsoft/Xbox Press Conference at E3 2013, Project Spark is not so much a game as it is a game development tool, allowing players the ability to create a variety of different 3D games through a variety of different means. All game worlds produced in it can be shared with the community.
