Microsoft is bringing early access to consoles for the first time with Xbox preview.

Early access is a system where players can play games that are partway through development. Made popular on the PC, this is a first for consoles. Every game made available through Xbox preview will have a free trial so players can make informed choices.

Elite Dangerous and The Long Dark will be available immediately with DayZ promised for the future along with creator Dean Hall's new title, ION.
