ID@Xbox Winter Game Fest

Microsoft has announced the [email protected] Winter Game Fest demo event, and its set for next week as part of The Game Awards 2021.

The [email protected] Winter Game Fest Demo Event will include over 35 playable game demos, all of which will be playable on Xbox consoles during the event – however many of the demos will be available for a limited time.

Here’s a rundown on the games confirmed thus far:

  • Loot RiverSet in a series of procedurally generated labyrinths, Loot River is a dungeon crawling, action roguelike that combines the tense, real-time combat, and dark fantasy stylings of Dark Souls with the spatial block-shifting puzzles of Tetris.
  • Death TrashFeaturing a post-apocalyptic world where cosmic horrors long for humanity but are meet by punks with shotguns. It combines old-school role-playing, modern action gameplay, and player freedom. Create your own character and explore this unique handcrafted world.
  • BlacktailA retelling of Baba Yaga’s origin story set in surreal, grim Slavic folklore. A one-of-a-kind blend of exploration and intense archery combat with dark storytelling. Become a fearsome guardian of the forest or the terror nightmares are based on.
  • The Tale of BistunA story-driven action-adventure game inspired by the 12th Century tragic poem “Khosrow and Shirin.” You play as a stone carver who wakes on Mount Bistun with no memory of anything before that moment. An insidious blight has spread, bringing forth many dangerous foes. You must battle through mythical enemies and travel between the real world and an ethereal place of forgotten memories to discover the secret of your past.
  • Nobody Saves the WorldComplete quests to discover and swap between more than 15 varied and distinct forms. Mix and match abilities to unlock and complete even more challenging quests while exploring a vast overworld and its extensive dungeons, either solo or with a friend online, to stop The Calamity and save the world!
