ID@Xbox Summer Game Fest Demo Event Begins Next Week, 30 Demos On Offer

by Rainier on June 16, 2022 @ 9:50 a.m. PDT

The 3rd annual ID@Xbox Summer Game Fest Demo event runs from June 21 through June 27, giving you a chance to play 30 demos of upcoming for Xbox Series X|S and Xbox On titles.

These demos will only be up on the Xbox Dashboard for a week. Some might be re-published to the Demo channel later, but many will simply disappear at the end of the week, so check them out while you can.

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.

These “game demos” are not the norm. Typically, the demos you see in our Demo channel are created after the game is completed (or nearly completed) and represents an almost final to final version. Think of these as akin to “show floor demos” and not necessarily indicative of the final product. What that means is that you’ll get to experience these games early – some way early – which is awesome since you’ll have the chance to provide your feedback! You should also note that these games will continue to evolve and be polished as they near release.

A full list will be revealed closer to June 21st, but here are some titles you’ll want to keep in mind:

  • Batora: Lost Haven: The physical and mental powers of a naive and reckless girl who lost everything are the only weapons to save the Earth from oblivion. Jump on a journey across colorful and mesmerizing planets in this fast-paced adventure where your conscience will carry the weight of your decisions.
  • Broken Pieces: Broken Pieces is a psychological thriller taking place in a French coastal village somehow outside the flow of time. Solve the mysteries by putting the pieces of the story back together by figuring out the enigma behind this mystical place.
  • Severed Steel: A stylish single-player FPS featuring a fluid stunt system, destructible voxel environments, loads of bullet time, a unique one-armed protagonist, and a dark electronic soundtrack.
  • Tinykin: Catch hundreds of tinykin and use their unique powers to bring Milo back to his home planet and back to normal size!
