It’s been a fairly big weekend so far with showcases from Ubisoft and the Summer Game Fest, but no doubt this is the one we’ve been waiting for due to so many different reasons. It’s the first time since Xbox acquired Bethesda that we’re really seeing this kind of showcase from either publisher, we’ll likely get our first look at Starfield and our first look at Halo Infinite since it was delayed by 12 months.
The bad news is that this is probably the worst time of any E3 press conference. It’s taking place at 3am AEST on Monday morning which isn’t super ideal as you either have to stay up or get up super early. It’s well worth it though as Square Enix’s press conference is at 5:15am AEST and there’s some spicy stuff rumoured for that showing too.
ALL THE AUSTRALIAN TIMES FOR THE XBOX & BETHESDA E3 2021 SHOWCASE
This is probably the most accessible stream of E3 so far, with Xbox providing it on a number of platforms in a number of different languages. It’ll be streamed at 1080p at 60FPS but then a 4K/60FPS version of that same stream will go live as soon as the live showcase has ended, so it’ll be well worth going back and watching this for those juicy visuals.
WHAT TO EXPECT FROM THE XBOX + BETHESDA E3 SHOWCASE
Xbox has said that the stream will last about 90 minutes and showcase the gaming lineup coming to Xbox this holiday, as well as games that are coming to Xbox Game Pass. It’s pretty much a lock at this point that we’ll be seeing both Starfield and Halo Infinite, but hopefully there’s a few surprises along the way.
