Sources: retail Xbox Ones will gain ability to become dev kits this year

Retail Xbox Ones to Become Dev Kits

One of Microsoft’s earliest-announced Xbox One features might finally be added to the console later this year. Citing nebulous “sources familiar with Microsoft’s plans,” The Verge reports that Microsoft will reveal at its April Build developer conference details about its plan to allow developers to turn retail Xbox Ones into studio developer kits (SDKs).

In another developer-friendly (and customer-friendly) move, Microsoft will allow developers to bring cross-platform applications to the Xbox One beginning this summer, the sources claim. Currently restricted to a small group of developers, Xbox app creation would be open to everyone at that time. App developers would also gain the ability to run beta tests before launching.

Existing apps would reportedly continue to run until November, but Microsoft would then begin requiring all apps to be built using the new app SDK. The report also states that Windows 10 will support these apps and bring their approval and store policies more in line with those of the current Windows Store.

If the report is to be believed, then Microsoft will make an SDK preview program and the retail-to-dev-kit switch available in May. The latter is an Xbox One feature that Microsoft first promised all the way back in July of 2013. Last September, however, the console holder said it was reneging on that promise, but it then issued a correction stating that talk of the retail SDK plan’s demise was untrue.

Developer Re-Logic is teaming up with Engine Software to build an all-new Terraria game. While not the long-awaited Terraria 2Terraria: Otherworld is promising to bring a fresh take on the popular sandbox game. It will take the series in a new direction, introducing a new world and new gameplay elements.

Otherworld takes place in an alternate dimension, where a once-pristine world has been taken over by an unseen evil force who corrupted nature itself. You play as a member of a band of survivors fighting to restore the world to its former glory. Throughout the struggle you’ll harness the powers of weapons, magic, defenses and the environment itself. The game will play differently from the original Terraria, combining the open sandbox with role-playing and strategy elements. A short teaser of pre-alpha gameplay has been released, which you can check out after the jump.

As of now, the game is only in development for PC and Mac. An Xbox One version is being considered, but no final decision has been made. The original Terraria released on Xbox 360 in 2013, becoming one of the more popular games on XBLA. The game was brought to Xbox One last November.
