Microsoft has announced that the beta for Team Dakota’s Project Spark will go live on Xbox one today.

The beta was released for Windows 8.1 users back in December and everyone who was in this beta will be given access to the Xbox One version. On Xbox One players will be able to use Kinect to animate characters via motion capture and can give them vocal commands.

“Exclusively on Windows 8.1 and now available on Xbox One, eager fans can join a dynamic development community of designers to create, explore and play within their own world, or jump into other community-creations to modify and collaborate on a game for endless possibilities,” Microsoft wrote.

“With cross-platform capabilities and through the power of Cloud Saving, “Project Spark” creators can build on a Windows 8.1 device, and then pick-up a controller to continue playing on Xbox One or vice versa.

“The Beta Program enables creators to use “Project Spark’s” developer-grade toolset on both Windows 8.1 and Xbox One platforms, available until the product launches later this year. Explore the infinite possibilities of “Project Spark” and help Team Dakota discover opportunities to bring the digital canvas experience to the next level of world-creation games.”

Players must have signed up for the beta to receive an invite. If you’re interested in joining the beta you can sign up here.

Matthew Bennett, Associate Editor
Matthew Bennett finally got his big break with EGM three years ago, following years of volunteer work for various sites. An ability to go many hours without sleep and a quick wit make him ideal for his role as associate editor at EGMNOW.com. He often thinks back to the days when the very idea of this career seemed like nothing but an impossible dream. Follow him on Twitter @mattyjb89. Meet the rest of the crew.
