Xbox One Game Preview, the Xbox version of Steam’s Early Access page, is going to be coming to Windows 10 PCs. This will further Microsoft’s attempts to integrate the Xbox One and Windows 10 closer together, and allow PC players to preview new games coming out on Xbox One.
The program coming to PC will start off by showing Everspace, a space simulator developed by Rockfish games. Everspace is an indie game that was funded via Kickstarter, and much like No Man’s Sky has you exploring the galaxy by yourself.
The game also includes roguelike elements, similar to FTL: Faster Than Light, a space adventure game that came out several years ago. If you die, then that’s all and you have to start over again.
Xbox One Game Preview has had a number of high-profile games be teased on it, such as We Happy Few, the survival game developed by Compulsion Games that is currently in its Early Access phase. All of these games are also included as part of the ID@Xbox program, a program started by Microsoft in order to allow people to develop PC and Xbox One games through early access.
The ID@Xbox program has currently released over 300 games since Strike Suit Zero, its first, back in April of 2014. Everspace will be entering Xbox One Game Preview on September 14, a few short weeks from now. The game will also be on Steam Early Access and Good Old Games’s Games in Development programs.
Gamescom will be lasting for another few days, so this is likely only the first news that we’ll be hearing from the convention. In the meantime, if you’re the owner of a Windows computer and Everspace looks like something you’d be interested in, you can get on Xbox One Game Preview and take a look at the game for yourself.
