Microsoft Announces ID@Xbox Game Fest

Microsoft has officially announced that they are kicking off the ID@Xbox Game Fest – a month-long celebration that’s designed to show off the breadth of amazing content offered by independent developers on Xbox One.

They have unvieled that each week in May, they will be highlighting a new batch of very special games, including some brand-new releases that they are super-excited to show gamers. Each week’s selection of ID@Xbox titles will feature a specific theme, along with additional creator spotlight content and special discounts for fans. 

So you wanna know what is going on each wee. Well, here’s the plan:

May 3-9: Discover

  • ID@Xbox has hosted a number of memorable, outside-the-box games, like The Park, Beyond Eyes, and Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime. And that’s just the start. It’s time to broaden fans horizons – discover new experiences, new creators, and new ways to play!

May 10-16: Play for Free

  • Everyone loves free stuff, and Xbox One is home to many top-notch free-to-play titles, such as Smite, Warframe, and ROBLOX. Microsoft plans to show gamers some of the best games from independent developers that they can play for free right now, to get the most bang for their non-buck.

May 17-23: What’s Next

  • The Xbox Game Preview program has already featured a number of acclaimed titles, including Layers of Fear (which has since graduated to a full release!), The Long Dark, and The Solus Project. There are more games coming to the program, and this is fans chance to get early access to tomorrow’s future indie hits, engage with developers, and help shape the next wave of awesome games

May 24-30: Best of ID@Xbox

  • Finally, there will be some great deals on some of the best ID@Xbox games and bundles. Most of these indie standouts need no introduction, such as stuff like Rocket League, Rogue Legacy, The Escapists, and The Banner Saga. If you’ve never experienced them, Microsoft is going to be offering you plenty of incentive to pick some of these modern classics.

Indie games seem to be a staple for gamers as a whole, and we here at XBA think it’s great they are being celebrated on the Xbox One.
