[email protected] Summer Game Fest Demo Event Begins Next Week With Over 30 Xbox Demos

Matt Lorrigan

The [email protected] Summer Game Fest Demo Event is returning for a third year running on Xbox consoles, with loads of demos for upcoming games.

Beginning on 21st June 2022 and running through to 27th June 2022, the [email protected] Summer Game Fest Demo Event sees Xbox teaming up with Geoff Keighley's Summer Game Fest to offer over thirty demos of unreleased games to play on Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S.

A full list of titles available will be announced soon, but for now, you can expect to try out Batora: Lost Haven, Broken Pieces, Severed Steel, and Tinykin.

There's a few caveats that come along with playing demos of unreleased games from small developers of course, so Xbox wants players to keep the following things in mind.

  • 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.

We'll have the full list of demos available for you soon.
