Xbox Is Hosting An Exclusive Watch Party In Melbourne For The Xbox And Starfield Showcase

But you'll need luck to score a ticket!

In case you missed it, a massive Xbox Games Showcase livestream showcase is planned to go ahead on June 12th that’ll bring trailers, gameplay, reveals and hopefully plenty of surprises, and it’ll be followed up by a massive deep-dive into Bethesda’s next epic RPG, Starfield. It’ll be like E3 was never cancelled!

While fans around the world can watch the event digitally as it happens, Xbox is also hosting select in-person events in much the same vein as it’s done in previous years. This year, Aussie fans can get in on the action with a special watch party happening in Melbourne at Fortress Melbourne, and it’s set to be the biggest one yet. Not only will fans be able to watch the double showcase feature live together, but there’ll be giveaways, playable games, photo booths and more.

Hopeful attendees will need to register or log in to an Xbox FanFest account at for a chance at a free double pass to the watch party, with entries closing very soon on May 10th.
