Microsoft has chosen to announce the final details of its Xbox Games Showcase today, which will also feature an in-depth look at the highly anticipated Starfield.
You’ll be able to tune in to Microsoft’s main showcase event on Sunday, June 11 at 6pm UK time via YouTube, Twitch and Facebook, followed by an extensive deep dive straight into Bethesda’s Starfield.
Today’s confirmation of the event’s timing comes just a day after Microsoft released the game on PC and Xbox to lukewarm reviews. All eyes are now on the delayed Starfield as Microsoft’s biggest release of the year.
Starfield is currently set to launch on September 6th for PC and Xbox Series X/S. It’s the biggest launch of 2023 for Xbox, and the most high-profile launch to come from Bethesda since it was acquired by Microsoft in 2021.
“Join us for some new surprises and first looks from our incredibly talented internal studios, and our many creative partners around the world,” Microsoft wrote today, trumpeting the event. “This is the day gamers have been waiting to see what’s coming to Xbox, PC and Game Pass.”
No more pressure.
Microsoft’s showcase is just one of many happening this June despite the cancellation of this year’s E3 event. Geoff Keighley’s rival, Summer Game Fest, is still set to air a show on Thursday 8 June. Ubisoft will also broadcast its own briefing on Monday, June 12.
“Some good bones in here,” wrote Eurogamer’s Chris Donlan, summing up his initial experience with Redfall this week. “It feels like the technology is creaking and some of the ideas – loot and other assorted destinies – are probably imposed from above. But there’s a lot of charm in this game already, and it’s very hard to patch after the fact.”
Expect Eurogamer’s full review of Redfall before the weekend.
