As part of the ongoing Summer Game Fest that brought us yesterday’s Nintendo Direct mini, there’s a whole lot of new Xbox One game demos to play. Microsoft is offering over 70 new game demos for players to get their hands on for free over the next week or so in order to simulate some of the experiences normally had at E3 and other physical events. Games will begin to go live starting today and continue to do so through July 27, 2020. Head below for all the details.

According to today’s Major Nelson blog post, there will be more than 70 new Xbox One game demos available for players to download and play from the comfort of their own home.
