Sometimes, good things can show up a little ahead of schedule. At the beginning of July 2020, Microsoft confirmed it would be hosting Xbox One demos on the Microsoft Store between July 21-27, 2020 as part of Summer Game Fest. Now, it turns out some of those trials are already showing up. [Thanks, Resetera!]
The storefront is already showing some of the 70 different Xbox One demos people will be able to sample. Not everything is there yet. For example, games like Cris Tales, Haven, and Skatebird aren’t there. But a few of the announced titles are showing up.
For example, the games below are already ready.
- 9 Monkeys of Shaolin
- Destroy All Humans
- Freshly Frosted
- Raji: An Ancient Epic
- Road to Guangdong
- Sail Forth
- Seasons of the Samurai
- Welcome to Elk
The final totals for how many trials will appear still haven’t been set, but Microsoft’s reports have suggested between 70 and 100 could appear. Also, these will be different than ordinary demos that are specifically prepared for occasions and are going to be more like the samples that would be at conventions. So what people could try may be very different than the final project or even be a bit broken.
The Summer Game Fest Xbox One demo event will run from July 21-27, 2020. The Xbox Games Showcase will be held on July 23, 2020.
