E3 2015: Xbox One gets Early Access-style service

Microsoft has announced Xbox Game Preview.

Xbox Game Preview is the new service that's just been announced by Microsoft.

The service is very similar to Steam Early Access, allowing you to buy games during their active development periods.

The service operates on a free trial basis, meaning you won't have to commit early. You can download game trials and choose whether or not to jump in during development. The service launches today with The Long Dark, and Elite: Dangerous.

Other games such as DayZ, Sheltered, and more will be available later this year.
