Microsoft’s big E3 conference has been confirmed to take place at 5:30 pm (UK time) on Monday, June 13. Now, the company have shared some details about their plans for the show. 

Writing on Xbox Wire, Microsoft confirmed it will show off previously announced games, along with previously unseen trailers for games coming out later this year “and beyond.” Obviously, this is exactly the kind of thing you’d expect from an E3 show, so no surprises there.


Microsoft also announced that it’ll be bringing back its Xbox Daily live show, which involves developer interviews and live announcements. That show will last for around an hour, and is set to follow the main conference.

You can catch the Xbox Daily show on June 14 and June 15, between midnight and 1 am (UK time). It’ll be streamed on Twitch, for anyone willing to stay up past their bedtime.

Finally, Microsoft confirmed that its Xbox FanFest will also be making a return. This provides lucky fans with access to Microsoft’s E3 briefing, plus meet-and-greet opportunities with developers, access to those sweet unreleased games, and a footrub from Phil Spencer.


Only 500 FanFest tickets are gonna be made available, with details about how to grab one to be announced at a later date.
