Xbox Summer Game Fest Demo Event begins July 21 for unreleased indies

Microsoft revealed plans to roll out demos for a variety of upcoming Xbox One video games. The firm introduced in a blog post today that it’s going to allow Xbox One homeowners to check out between 75 to 100 unreleased video games beginning July 21 and working by July 27 as a part of the Summer Game Fest (often known as “Not E3”). This offers builders a spot to point out off demos that they had been doubtless already engaged on for varied (and now canceled) commerce reveals and fan gatherings.

Of the practically 100 video games collaborating within the demo competition, Microsoft says that 60 are new. This ought to give gaming followers a chance to get a small glimpse at what lies forward. But it’s vital to notice that these should not prerelease demos. This is that uncooked gameplay you get on a kiosk at the back of an L.A. lodge room.

“Typically, the demos you see in our Demo channel are created after the game is completed (or nearly completed) and represent the final version,” writes [email protected] advertising boss Glenn Gregory. “Many of these demos are early, and some are for games that won’t be out for quite some time. We’ve never done this before; 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.”

Also understand that the Xbox Summer Game Fest Demo Event is an [email protected] initiative. That means it’s primarily coping with indie video games, and it isn’t straight associated to Microsoft’s next-gen Xbox. The firm is at the moment planning to carry its first-party next-gen Xbox reveal on July 23.
