Xbox is bringing back a new special demo event to coincide with Geoff Keighley’s Summer Game Fest.
Following its debut last year with the inaugural Summer Game Fest, the second ID @ Xbox Summer Game Fest event will feature demos of more than 40 games between June 15-21.
The demos will be for previously unreleased games coming to Xbox One and Xbox Series X / S.
So far, only five of the demos have been confirmed: Halifax-based Andrew Shouldice Zelda-What Sayo; Toronto-based Cococucumber’s turn-based RPG Echo generation; the open world exploration game Saber, the choice-based adventure game lake and base-building survival action RPG Leak breaker.
It is worth noting that this is a completely new demo for Sayo, after a previous one that had been circulated at various events.
Please note, however, that Xbox emphasizes that these are not “normal” demos, as they are for ongoing games and do not represent the final product. “Many of these demos are early and some are for games that won’t be available for quite some time,” says Xbox.
Xbox says the full list of demos will be revealed closer to June 15.
