Project Spark to be Completely Free From October 5th
It has been announced that free-to-play creation tool Project Spark will make all of it’s premium content free from October 5th.
In a move that Team Dakota have described as a jump from a “free-to-play model to a free and open creation platform”, all previously released paid DLC will be unlocked for every Project Spark user.
To those who might have recently purchased the full collection of DLC (myself included) Team Dakota have you covered. Anyone who has purchased the Project Spark disc and redeemed content via product key redemption or has purchased content via the in-game marketplace on or after July 28th, or has purchased in-game tokens left in their balance will be entitled to Microsoft Store credit equal to how much money has been spent.
However, Team Dakota are also stopping any future DLC releases, stating that they feel they’ve gotten to a good place with the content on offer for creators. There are other announcements, such as tweaks to the terrain and prop limits, and each user being given 100 upload slots. For the full announcement list, follow the link here.
