Microsoft has announced that the annual Xbox Games Showcase will take place on June 11th at 10am PT/6pm BST/7pm CEST. The company promises to unveil “new surprises and first-looks” from Xbox-owned studios and third-party teams. The highly anticipated Starfield Direct will air immediately after the Xbox show. Director Todd Howard has teased that the game has many unique features and over 100 systems and 1000 planets.
Games to Expect
Forza Motorsport and Senua’s Saga: Hellblade II are expected to make an appearance. Obsidian’s first-person RPG Avowed, zombie survival sim State Of Decay 3, and the Fable reboot, which were shown off three years ago, may also resurface. Fans are eagerly waiting for more information on Fable.
Expectations for Microsoft
Microsoft’s proposed acquisition of Activision Blizzard is in hot water, and their most recent release, Redfall, has received mixed reviews. They have a lot to prove, making this showcase a crucial opportunity to demonstrate their commitment to gamers. The Xbox Games Showcase and Starfield Direct can be streamed on Twitch and YouTube channels on June 11th, followed by Xbox Games Extended Showcase featuring developer interviews on June 13th.
