Dragon Quest XI S: Echoes of an Elusive Age is coming to Xbox One and Xbox Game Pass on December 4th, but if you want to try it out before then, a free demo is now available on the Microsoft Store.

The game is an enhanced and expanded version of the original 2017 Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age, and marks the first time the Dragon Quest series has appeared on a Microsoft platform.

In this demo, you'll get a "generous glimpse of the opening events in the epic adventure that awaits you", joining a young hero as he takes his first steps towards becoming the Luminary, a legendary hero destined to save Erdrea.

And better yet, any progress you make will carry over to the full game next month!

Embark upon an epic adventure as The Luminary: the chosen one in a world that vows to hunt him down. The Luminary and his unique band of loyal companions work together to survive an onslaught of ne’er-do-wells and overthrow the dark forces that plot to plunge the world of Erdrea into chaos. Explore the massive world of DRAGON QUEST and awaken your power in this can't-miss adventure!
