A few weeks ago, action-adventure game ReCore was the first Xbox Play Anywhere to be released on both the Xbox One and Windows 10 PCs. The game is brand new IP from Microsoft Studios and set players in the feet of Joule Adams, a young woman who must survive in the mysterious world of Far Eden with the help of her Corebot companions.

If you’ve been considering buying the game since its worldwide release during the third week of September, you will now be able to try the game for free to help you make your decision. According to a new blog post published on Xbox Wire today, a free 30 minutes game trial is now available to download on both the Xbox One and Windows 10 PCs. Even better, all your progress will be saved if you decide to buy the game, allowing you pick up exactly where you left off after the end of the trial.

To try the game for free, just go the store listing on the Windows Store or the Xbox Store on your console and you’ll see the free trial option. Lastly, an update for the game will roll out today on all platforms. A separate blog post on the official ReCore website explained what’s new:

In this update, you will experience decreased loading times, see audio and visual improvements, and notice improvements to issues you may have experienced with waypoints, achievement tracking, collision locations, checkpoints and respawn points.

And for anyone who has experienced a Window 10 issue where the full game of ReCore downloads again during an update, a separate Windows fix is available now. All Windows 10 players are encouraged to download the Windows update (Version 1607) immediately to avoid this issue.

At $39.99, Recore is not an AAA title but it’s definitely worth trying. If you haven’t done it yet, we invite you to check our review over here.
