Microsoft has announced an upcoming Summer Game Fest event focused on bringing you several game demos.

The event will last for one week from July 21 through July 27. Microsoft touts more than 60 new game demos for unreleased Xbox games. However, they’re sure to note that these games are not typical game demos,

“Many of these demos are early, and some are for games that won’t be out for quite some time. We’ve never done this before; what that means is that you’ll get to experience these games early – some way early – which is awesome, but you should also note that these games will continue to evolve and be polished as they near release. In other words, think of these as akin to “show floor demos” and not necessarily indicative of the final product.”

Be sure to check your Xbox dashboard where the demos should show up. A full list of games available will be announced on July 21, but for now, some initial games announced include Cris Tales, Destroy All Humans!, Haven, Hellpoint, Skatebird, The Vale: Shadow of the Crown, Raji: An Ancient Epic, and Welcome to Elk.
