E3 is virtual again this year, so Microsoft is hosting a virtual Xbox & Bethesda Games Showcase on Sunday instead of the usual in-person event.

“[On Sunday] gamers across the globe will come together to watch the Xbox & Bethesda Games Showcase, featuring the latest on games from Xbox Game Studios, Bethesda, and our partners from around the world,” Microsoft’s Jeff Rubenstein writes. “The show will run about 90 minutes in length and will be packed with everything you want to know about the epic gaming lineup coming to Xbox this holiday, upcoming releases on Xbox Game Pass, and more.”

What: Xbox & Bethesda Games Showcase

When: Sunday, June 13 at 10 am Pacific Time/1 pm Eastern Time (Search for time zone conversion)

Where: TwitchYouTubeFacebook, and Twitter (The show will also be streamed on channels across the globe, including Bilibili in China, Jeuxvideo in France, and VK in Russia, OTT platforms including Samsung TV+, Xumo, PlutoTV and Vizio, and regional Xbox pages on Facebook and elsewhere, Microsoft adds.)

Languages. The event will be streamed in English, but Microsoft will provide LATAM Spanish, BR Portuguese, German, Parisian French, Russian, Italian, Castilian Spanish, Chinese (Simplified), Chinese (Traditional), Japanese, Korean, Polish, Turkish, Arabic, Hindi, Malay, Vietnamese, Persian (Farsi), Greek, Dutch, Danish, Swedish, Czech, Norwegian, Greek, Hungarian, Finnish, Slovak, Hebrew, and Portugal Portuguese subtitles. There will also be a version of the show with American Sign Language (ASL) and Audio Descriptions (AD) in English on the Xbox YouTube channel.

    With the Bethesda acquisition completed, this year might (hopefully) be a good show with promising announcements.

    Looking forward to Halo and Forza Horizon 5.

    Wonder if the Uplay coming to GamePass will be announced?

    Odd there is not a native way to view it from your Xbox. I used to watch those Xbox news updates on the Xbox.

    I guess I will use the YouTube app on my Apple TV.

    I am looking forward to this even if I cannot "game" as much as I'd like to. I am one of the tortured souls who is still investing into Fallout 76 so interested in seeing if they will keep it going or just invest into Fallout 5. The game is just kind of relaxing to me and love how they are adding content and new locations.

    Side note...I wish Mixer was still here. So odd they let it go right before reassuring us that gaming was a priority. Using Twitch on the XBOX isn't hard but for sure clunkier than Mixer and their partnership with "Facebook Gaming" seems to have gone nowhere.
