Darwin Project Has Now Gone Free-to-Play on Xbox One

Why it matters: Digital game downloads are convenient, but they aren't ideal.

It's now in Xbox Game Preview with an official launch coming later, and this Xbox One version has brought a few updates with it.

Both Xbox and PlayStation include similar features which allow users to play your game when a certain amount of the game has been downloaded - in Xbox's case, it's called "ready to start". FastStart was announced at E3 and is all about getting into Xbox One games quickly after starting a download. It's that simple. What's more, it's now enabled for select English language titles in our Xbox Game Pass catalog, and will expand to more games in more languages over time. You won't have to do anything extra to make it work besides updating to the latest version of the Xbox software.

Meanwhile, speaking earlier this week, ICMSA president Pat McCormack commented on the arrangement in place with Irish Water. Northumbrian Water says people are using 100 million extra litres of water a day, compared to this time previous year .

Meanwhile, if you're looking for something, you can now just press the Y button anywhere in the dashboard to bring up the search dialog. You can assign names, organize and order the items in Groups, and you can sync them with your Microsoft Account across all your Xbox Consoles.

Today we're having a peek at the insides of the July Xbox Update, and what it means to partake in its greatness. There are some Mixer improvements, like making it easier to use Share Controller from the web and multi-touch support. Someone's holding a PlayStation 4 controller instead of an Xbox One controller. This allows multiple controls to be used at the same time! The game also features a greater focus on survival, with the cold weather conditions as much a blight on player health as the guerilla-style combat.

It's also possible that if your connection slows down while FastStart is still downloading a game in the background, you'll need to wait for the download speed to pick back up before you can continue playing.
