E3 may have long since ended, but Gamescom is getting hot this week. The three-day trade show will feature digital streams full of new announcements. It will kick off successfully with a 90-minute Xbox stream – an event that is sure to be one you won’t want to miss. Here’s how you can capture the action as well as what to expect from the broadcast.
Although Gamescom doesn’t officially start until August 25, Xbox will launch a day early. The event will take place at 10 a.m. Pacific Time on Tuesday, August 24. The showcase will run for approximately 90 minutes.
There are dozens of ways to watch the rollout, with Xbox pushing it to a multitude of different platforms. It will be streamed on the official Xbox channels on YouTube, Twitch, Facebook, Twitterand more globally.
What will we see at Xbox Gamescom?
Xbox confirmed that the rollout won’t focus on new releases or big surprises, but will share a lot of information. Expect to see updates on upcoming releases this year, titles are on their way Xbox Game Pass and more. This means we can get more information about holiday releases like Forza Horizon 5 and Halo Infinite.
As for the latter, we’ll probably hear more details about its campaign following the announcement of the lack of split multiplayer on launch day. Halo Infinite There’s no official release date yet, so it’s likely we’ll finally get one here.
As mentioned, there won’t be any major new announcements or surprises, so don’t go with an E3 mindset. Don’t expect to see big games like Perfect darkness or Fables this time. If they weren’t at E3, there’s no reason to think Microsoft would save them for a show just two months later. However, there may be some hype about previously announced titles, so it’s still worth keeping an eye on.
