E3 2015: The Long Dark And Elite Dangerous Coming To Xbox Game Preview

At E3 today, Microsoft announced that they will be launching the Xbox Game Preview feature for the Xbox One later today. Working in a similar manner to Steam’s Early Access feature, Game Preview will allow developers to release early versions of their games to fans before their final release. Among the first games released via this system will be indie developer Hinterlands hit survival game The Long Dark and the tactical space exploration sim Elite Dangerous. Both games will be available for purchase via the Game Preview section of the Xbox Store when the feature launches later today, 6/15/2015, at 5:30 PM PST.

“We’re excited to offer a select list of games via Xbox Game Preview on Xbox One, enabling Xbox players the opportunity to get involved with the development of innovative game experiences with excellent development teams behind them by offering feedback throughout the development process,” said Chris Charla, Director of ID@Xbox. “Hinterland’s The Long Dark is the perfect example of the quality and innovation we anticipate in all our Game Preview titles.”

Those who buy into The Long Dark’s preview will have access to the game’s free-form sandbox mode and will later gain access to episodic story content for free shortly. While, in the case of Elite Dangerous, future updates will bring new ships, modes of play, and other content to the game later this summer.

My name is Nicole Seraphita and I’m 27. I’ve been gaming since the days of the NES and have owned at least one system from each generation since then. My favorite type of games if most definitely RPGs, with my favorites being titles like Chrono Cross, Persona 4, and Tales of Xillia, though I also sometimes dabble in platforming games, fighting games, and visual novels. When I’m not writing for APGNation or playing games, I enjoy table top and card games, watch anime, and write fiction that I occasionally publish online. I tend to write a lot of Sci-fi and the occasional bit of fantasy, with the often overlooked sub-genre of Biopunk being my favorite. I’ve also written a few visual novels, though only one of them has made it all the way to completion thus far. My current dream is to be able to bring the Monster Girl genre to a western audience.

Have your say!
