Over 70 Demos Are Live For Xbox's Showcase Week—Here's the Lineup

Over 70 Demos Are Live For Xbox's Showcase Week—Here's the Lineup

There are a lot of cool games to check out this week.

This is the week of Xbox's July showcase, where it's set to debut more about its upcoming lineup for the Xbox Series X. But alongside that stream, the company is also teaming with Geoff Keighley's Summer Game Fest to host its own festival of sorts, featuring a ton of demos of upcoming games.

The list is absolutely massive; over 70 games are included in the ID@Xbox Summer Game Fest Demo Event. These quick looks at upcoming games will start rolling out today and will be live from July 21 through 27. It bears repeating from Xbox's earlier announcement that these are very much early demos, closer to what you might find on the showfloor of PAX than on a store shelf, so don't judge any rough edges too harshly.

On Thursday, Xbox will show more games for the Xbox Series X, including a confirmed look at the campaign for Halo Infinite. This is shaping up to be a critical week, for Halo and for Xbox, as it ramps up towards a Series X launch this holiday against the PlayStation 5. But for now, there are a lot of games to play.

Here's the list of all games, via the Xbox Wire. We've also linked any coverage of these games we've done prior to now, if you want to check that out before or after settling down with the demo.
