Following the first ID@Xbox Summer Game Fest Demo Event last year, Xbox are repeating the event this year.
Announced by Geoff Keighley, a selection of demos will be available for a limited time period. It’s been designed to give gamers “another opportunity to discover lots of new games coming to Xbox”
The event will run from 15th June through to 21st June and will feature “over 40 demos of upcoming unreleased games for Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One!”
However they did say there are a few things to remember.
These are not like a normal game demo as a lot of these will be builds from early in the game’s development and may not release any time soon. They are similar to the show floor demos people would see at E3 for example
“What that means is that you’ll get to experience these games early – some way early”
“These games will continue to evolve and be polished as they near release.”
They also tell us the developers would love fan feedback. Things saying you love the game or some constructive criticism they would appreciate hearing. So if you try them out, why not let them know your thoughts.
What games are coming?
Only a handful of titles were announced with the full list announced nearer to the event. Expect to hear more at the Xbox showcase on June 13th.
