Summer has given way to winter, and with it, another seasonal ID@Xbox demo event, this time called ID@Xbox Winter Game Demo Event. Why the name change? I don’t know. Not like it matters a whole lot though, because like last time, there are going to be many demos of upcoming Xbox games to play, and that’s… groovy.
So, let’s see… important details… important… ah yes: this here event begins on December 6, concluding on December 12, 2022, meaning you better fire up that Xbox and get ready to demo!
