For those who don’t know what Early Access means, it’s a funding model for the game industry that allows consumers to pay for a game in the early stages of development and obtain access to playable but unfinished versions of the game, while the developer is able to use those funds to continue work on the game.
Other announcements are the upcoming Share Play which will allow you to share your games or invite others to play without them having to own the game themselves. Also will be the ability to upload videos to YouTube.
