Steam Game Festival: Autumn Edition Starts This Wednesday
Get ready to play a bunch of game demos from the comfort of your own home.
The Steam Game Festival has been one of the only gaming events to add more dates to its roster in 2020, thanks to its virtual-only format. Hosted entirely on Steam, the event will let you play demos of newly released and upcoming games for free, between October 7 and October 13.
Now on its fourth installment, after the first Game Festival launched last December in tandem with Geoff Keighley's Game Awards, the format has stayed mostly the same--log on to Steam between the 7th and the 13th and get access to hundreds of free demos on Steam.
You can check out a preview of some of the Festival's featured games in the video below.
We’ve worked with @sumichu, @andylaso, @spikevegeta and @oatsngoats to bring you hours of gameplay & commentary on titles featured in the Steam Game Festival!— Steam (@Steam) October 6, 2020

The autumn event will be showing demos of games that are scheduled to launch on Steam between now and May 1, 2021. With big gaming events still likely a while (or a vaccine) away from being safe again, this is your best chance to get hands-on and discover some new games to follow.
Further Steam Game Festival events are tentatively planned for February 2021 and June 2021, so we can expect them to continue being a regular occurrence even beyond 2020. Check out the official Steam page here to set a reminder for the beginning of the Autumn Festival.
