ID@Xbox Event To Include 30 Free, New Game Demos

Independent Developers @Xbox is hosting yet another demo event as a part of Geoff Keighley’s Summer Game Fest promotion. Starting on June 21st and running through June 27th, players will be able to get their hands on 30 demos of upcoming unreleased games for Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One, according to an Xbox Wire release.

Though the full lineup will be announced closer to the June 21st launch, some games showcased on the Xbox Wire were Batora: Lost Haven, Broken Pieces, Severed Steel and Tinykin.

The Wire release encouraged players to leave feedback for game developers on what they like and don’t to improve the gaming experience ahead of these titles’ eventual release date.

“The developers would love to hear what you think. Hit them up on social media or through their websites. If you like the game – tell them! If you have constructive criticism, they would love to hear that too,” the Wire said.

This is the third installment of Xbox’s Summer Game Demo Fest, an event tied to Xbox’s Independent Developers program, which aims to enable “qualified game developers of all sizes to unleash their creativity by self-publishing digital games on Xbox and Windows with Xbox Live, or adding Xbox Live to iOS or Android games, giving studios the tools and support needed to maximize their success,” according to their site.

Xbox also stressed that these demos are not like their usual demos, which are often representative of the final product. Instead, these are very early access versions of these games, which they say will allow players to leave feedback early on and follow along with their development but stress are like “show floor demos” that will continue to evolve.

The Wire also said that these demos would only be up on the Xbox Dashboard for a week, and though some might be re-published to the Demo channel later, many will disappear at the end of the week. So check them out while you can.
