Xbox Game Pass is adding game demos this year

Demos were a central part of the gaming scene in the 90s and early 00s, allowing you to play through the early stages of upcoming games and whet your appetite for the full release later in the year. The problem was that they were expensive to make and distracted developers from finishing the game. Over the past 15 years, demos have largely faded, with alpha and beta testing for multiplayer games taking their place, and single-player game developers opting for trailers and a massive marketing effort to build hype for launch day. .

Microsoft wants to change all that.
