Coming to Switch! Demos at PAX – Part 2 (G-L)

There’s a lot to see and do at PAX Online—much like an in-person PAX, it can be difficult to know where to begin when it comes to which games to check out, what might be relevant to your preferred mode of play, and so forth.

To assist you in the week ahead, we’ve gone ahead and compiled a list of demos you can download and play in the “Expo Hall.” Almost all of these are available on Steam, with several titles via the Microsoft store or direct from the game’s website. We’ll be posting this in chunks for sake of manageability!

Please note that while some of the listings in the Expo Hall mentioned a demo for a particular game title, if we visited the linked “demo” page and we unable to find a demo (on the Steam page for the game, for example), we did not include that title here. That’s not to say the demos won’t be available later this week (rumor is more are being added throughout the show!) but we won’t be rechecking hundreds of game pages every day. Sorry! So if you know of a game you were hoping to check out but don’t see it in this list, please check out the Expo Hall listing yourself just in case right here (
