Microsoft has used gamescom to give Xbox One console exclusive ‘game-maker’ Project Spark a release date. The beta will start in January 2014.

The game will first debut on Windows 8 in October for a closed beta. The Xbox One launch will be the first time it’ll be open to everyone.

“Everything will be fully playable on day one [for Xbox One],” Microsoft Games Studios general manager Dave McCarthy told press.

“You’ll be able to either use that Crossroads mode to build something really quickly through story choices, you can do the blank slate editor, or you can take games that other people have built and then just edit them for yourself.”

Earlier in the week a montage video of community created projects was escaped from gamescom:
