ID@Xbox Winter Game Demo Event Runs December 6 to 12 - NewsWilliam D'Angelo , posted on 02 December 2022 / 1,290 Views
Microsoft announced D@Xbox Winter Game Demo Event will run from December 6 to 12. Demos of over 20 upcoming games for Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One from independent developers will be available to play.
The demos will only be available for one week, however, some developers might re-publish them to the Demo channel later on. Developers want to hear feedback on social media and via their websites.
"These 'game demos' are not the norm," reads Xbox Wire Post. "Typically, the demos you see in our Demo channel are created after the game is completed (or nearly completed) and represent an almost final to final version. Think of these akin to 'show floor demos' and not necessarily indicative of the final product.
"You’ll get to experience these games early – some way early – which gives you the chance to provide your feedback! You should also note that these games will continue to evolve and become more polished as they near release."
Check out the list of confirmed games to have demos during the event below:
