As well as this demo, there is also a demo for Forza Horizon 2 (Xbox One). However, as Xbox One demos can not be downloaded through Xbox.com, you will have to trigger the demo through your console.

Twenty years have passed since the Prime Evils were defeated and banished from the world of Sanctuary. Now, you must return to where it all began—the town of Tristram—and investigate an omen that the End Times have begun. The demo version of Diablo III includes the Barbarian and Wizard classes, local and online multiplayer, and game progression up to the Skeleton King. Demo saves can be carried forward to the full game.
