Xbox’s Winter Game Fest includes 33 demos of new and upcoming indie games


Xbox has launched its latest ID@Xbox demo event, offering players a chance to try out demos of new and upcoming indie games.

The 33 titles listed below are now available for Xbox Series X/S and Xbox One owners to download and try out until the end of December.

As with previous ID@Xbox demo events, the demos featured are not considered ‘normal’ game demos, instead they should be viewed more like ‘show floor demos’ you would see at an event like E3 or Gamescom.

“These demos are an early look at gameplay and may not represent the full game at their release, including the availability in each country as developers continue to update and refine their title ahead of launch,” explained Jessica Ronnell, ID@Xbox’s events, community and partner onboarding team lead. “So, don’t forget you can help provide early feedback to the devs!”

The full list of games is as follows: you can find each demo by searching its name on the Xbox store.
