ID@Xbox Summer Game Demo Fest Is Now Live

From June 15-21, you can try 40 game demos on Xbox that feature Slavic mythology, adorable adventures, and the relaxing art of mowing your lawn.


Last week's Summer Game Fest had plenty of upcoming titles to show off, but if you're not in the mood to wait or pay for a new game to try out, the good news is that a selection of demos are now available on Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One to try out. From June 15-21, these demos can be downloaded and Microsoft has promised that more are on the way.

Some of the more notable games include Lawn Mowing Simulator from developer Skyhook Games, which is pretty much exactly what it sounds like. Zelda-like adventure game Tunic is available to try out, Slavic RPG Black Book is worth a look, and the visually fascinating Sable which will have a timed exclusive release on Xbox consoles.

It's worth noting that unlike regular game demos which are based on finished products, the ID@Xbox offerings are from early builds of games that won't be out for quite some time. Microsoft describes these as show floor demos that aren't indicative of the final quality of the finished game. Some of these games are also only playable for a limited time during this brief window of opportunity.
