Xbox One's Project Spark is free, along with anything created with it

Microsoft to give away game building tool

So I think we've read about this before, but it may have gotten a little lost in all the E3 hubbub - Team Dakota's snazzy Xbox One and Xbox 360 world creation tool Project Spark is a free-to-play game. As reported by Siliconera, the base download includes "hundreds" of parts, characters, worlds and the terrain builder itself.

It's not clear whether the sim will offer additional content via micro-transactions - I suspect not, given that the Kodu Games Lab toolset Project Spark is based on is free from top to bottom. Read more about the latter here, and catch the first Project Spark trailer below.
