Project Spark ditches microtransactions to become a free and open creation engine. In a news post on the Xbox website it has been confirmed that Project Spark will become completely free to use from next week. The move will make all paid content free and available for new and existing Project Spark users. Following the change Microsoft will focus less on producing elements for the game and begin\u00a0encouraging more user-generated content. \u201cProject Spark\u2019s goal has always been to empower creativity. We\u2019ve been an incubation engine for ideas from epic to artistic and we plan to continue doing so,\u201d said Rahul Sandil, Head of\u00a0Project Spark\u00a0Acquisition\/Engagement. According to Sandil Project Spark has over 200,000 creators, creating between 300-400 games a day. All great news, but what about players who have previously put money down on DLC? Anyone who has\u00a0purchased digital content, activated a retail disc,or has\u00a0in-game tokens will be entitled to Microsoft Store credit of equal value. Alongside this news, a range of new features will be coming to Project Spark on\u00a0October 5. These include an increase in terrain and prop limits and the addition of over 200 new assets.
