Like free demos? Then you're in luck! Microsoft has announced that last year's Summer Game Fest Demo event is returning for 2021 on Xbox, bringing over 40 free demos to consoles from Tuesday, June 15 to Monday, June 21.
As part of this, we'll get a chance to try the much-anticipated Tunic for the first time on Xbox, as well as Sable, Lake, The Riftbreaker, Echo Generation and many other titles that have yet to be revealed at the time of writing.
Microsoft advises that these demos are akin to “show floor demos” and not necessarily indicative of the final product, and they will only be up on the Xbox Dashboard for a week, with many "simply evaporating" after that point.
"These are not normal “game demos.” Typically, the demos you see in our Demo channel are created after the game is completed (or nearly completed) and represent the final version. Many of these demos are early, and some are for games that won’t be out for quite some time.
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, but you should also note that these games will continue to evolve and be polished as they near release."
