I’m new to all this early access stuff but is it like paying to be part of a beta or is there more to it than that?
Is Game Preview the same?

You've basically nailed it with your statement of "paying to be part of a beta." Usually, the prices go up once the game leaves beta (there are some exceptions like PUBG; it's up to the developer what they want to do with the pricing), which is why some gamers like to get in on the ground floor, as well as being able to play the game months or even years earlier than its actual launch.

Game Preview is Xbox's version of Steam's Early Access program, yep!

Thought the same thing, looks like a calm little game I'd enjoy!
