, Microsoft's game-creation app for Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC will not require a Gold-level Xbox Live subscription to play. The news comes from community manager Mike Lescault, who said in a Reddit
thread that players "will not need a gold subscription to play Project Spark
for free on any platform."
The game will enter its Xbox One beta phase in January
, and the PC beta program is expected to start this month. Project Spark
players will be able to use Kinect as a motion capture
device, and may eventually implement gameplay control
using Kinect as well.
