Microsoft’s new focus on supporting PC gaming has also influenced the direction Microsoft is taking the Xbox One, and it’s for the better. Fallout 4 has now announced that mods will work on Xbox One right out the box which could pave the way for more titles to follow suit. With the Xbox Game Preview, now Xbox players can help indie developers build and improve their game by granting early access, much like Steam Early Access, but with an Xbox twist.
Players who see a game they are interested in can play a free trail of the title before they pay. If you like what you experienced, you can support the developer by purchasing early access versions of the game and can give feedback to help shape the final release. Games like The Long Dark is actually available to try out right now as you can gain early access today! They have also announced that Day Z will also come to Xbox Game Preview later this year.
