Microsoft has announced ID@Xbox Game Pass, a showcase for upcoming indie games on Xbox. This separates it from Inside Xbox, as the games shown here are specifically indie titles coming to Xbox Game Pass.
Here’s the details from the announcement post:
We are excited to announce ID@Xbox Game Pass, a stream highlighting great indie games coming soon to Xbox Game Pass, premiering March 26 at 9:00 AM PDT. In this show, you can expect to learn more about some of the hottest ID@Xbox titles coming to Xbox Game Pass with new reveals, gameplay highlights, and conversations with the developers. Fans will be able to check out our first ever episode here.
In our debut, we’ll dive into games previously shown at E3 and X018. Expect hits such as Afterparty, Void Bastards, and Supermarket Shriek to be highlighted. In addition to new game announcements, we’ll also share a visit to Night School Studio, the creative team behind the hit game Oxenfree, for a behind-the-scenes look at their upcoming game Afterparty. Extra made up bonus internet points if you tweet to us about your advanced frisbee college courses.
This is a very interesting approach to take. Xbox seems to be separating indie titles and giving them their own spotlight and show.
We’ll be sure to cover any announcements made during the show.
