Microsoft is hosting a new promotion in honor of independent developers
The month-long event is called ID@Xbox Game Fest, and owes its name to the Microsoft indie developer initiative.
Starting tomorrow, each week in the month of May will spotlight independent games available on Xbox One and Windows 10. The promotion will offer along with additional creator spotlight content and special discounts for our fans.”
Tomorrow through May 9 the Game Fest will feature lesser-known titles, including The Park, Beyond Eyes, and Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime. May 10-16 will highlight free-to-play games —Smite, Warframe, and ROBLOX — while May 17-23 explores the Xbox Preview Program. Examples include The Long Dark, and The Solus Project.
“Finally, we’ve got some great deals on some of the best ID@Xbox games and bundles,” the announcement continues.
The final week of May will play host to the “Best of ID@Xbox.” Which means games like Rocket League, Rogue Legacy, The Escapists, and The Banner Saga will see discounts between May 24-30.
The full list of included games will be revealed as the event rolls on.
