Available on:

At the #XboxE3 briefing we announced an exciting new pilot program called Xbox Game Preview – a feature that allows players the opportunity to download and evaluate a selection of games under active development. Every game in the program has a free trial, allowing the community to get involved and provide feedback during the development process.

The first two titles in the Xbox Game Preview program are now available in the Xbox store.

Elite Dangerous is the definitive massively multiplayer space epic, bringing gaming’s original open world adventure to the modern generation with a connected galaxy, evolving narrative and the entirety of the Milky Way re-created at its full galactic proportions. Starting with only a small starship and a few credits, players do whatever it takes to earn the skill, knowledge, wealth and power to survive in a futuristic cutthroat galaxy and to stand among the ranks of the iconic Elite.

The Long Dark is a thoughtful, exploration-survival experience that challenges solo players to think for themselves as they explore an expansive frozen wilderness. Monitor your condition, search for life-saving supplies, and master survival skills like fire-building, maintaining your gear, hunting, fishing, and landmark-based navigation. There are no zombies — only you, the cold, and everything Mother Nature can throw at you.

More games will be added to the Xbox Game Preview and we look forward to seeing how the community feels about this new program.
