With in-person gaming events out of the question this year, Xbox is turning to a digital alternative to show off some upcoming Xbox One games. Starting on July 22, the Summer Games Fest Demo Event will allow players to check out early builds for a ton of games from their couches rather than a crowded convention centre.
According to Xbox’s announcement, this online showcase will included 75-100 game previews, with at least 60 of those being brand new. Unlike the official demos that normally appear on Xbox Live, however, these are very much work-in-progress. Think of them like the show floor demos one might see at an E3, PAX, or Gamescom.
The event’s lineup will include minimised skateboarding sim Skatebird, and biographical adventure Welcome to Elk.
While it’s possible the demos might appear on Xbox Live later on, many of the games featured in the Summer Games Fest Demo Event are expected to disappear after July 28.
