Xbox's Summer Game Demo Event Will Showcase 40 Unreleased Games

The Xbox Summer Game Demo Event brings E3 2021 to your home with 40 Demos

Published: June 15, 2021 10:51 AM /



As part of E3 2021, Jessica Ronnell, the Xbox Events and Community Management Lead, has announced that Xbox's Summer Game Demo event will allow players to download 40 unreleased demos of unreleased games from June 15 to June 21, with some of the demos becoming available throughout the week. Some will be available starting today, and if you want to try all of the demos you'll have to keep checking your Xbox Dashboard for more demos during the week. This event was announced last Thursday, along with a whole bunch of other cool stuff during Xbox and Bethesda's E3 2021 conference on Sunday.

Ronnell asks players to keep in mind that the demos are early representations and may not represent the full games, which is a pretty reasonable request. She even states that some games might not be available in the countries they release their demos in, which probably won't happen but would definitely be a bummer if that were the case.
