Microsoft has announced that it will be dropping the micro transactions based revenue model for its Project Spark game creation game and will make it completely free starting October 5.
Project Spark has been quite a popular game world creation video game for Windows 8.1 and Xbox One. Although the game itself is free, users were required to purchase DLC such as tools and enhancements for new experiences. Now, the company has announced that all such content will also be given for free.
The downloadable content will be made available to new and existing gamers from October 5. Additionally, the game is set to receive a major update on the same day that will bring new assets and the restrictions on terrain and props will be removed. Changes to the achievements system will also be part of this update.
Users who have paid for any content since July 28, 2015 will be reimbursed with Microsoft Store credit according to the official post in the Project Spark forums. The credit will be transferred within 30-60 days.
