A pre-show will also be hosted an hour before by presenter Geoff Keighley, and, according to an Xbox Wire post, will deliver “reveals, predictions, insights from YouTube creators, and more on some already-announced titles coming to Xbox”.

The show will be host to world premieres and updates on many upcoming games for the Xbox Series X. Included in this will be a first-look at footage from the highly anticipated Halo Infinite.

During the week of the show, Xbox will also be bringing a Summer Game Fest Demo Event to players. Sixty demos will be released throughout the week for players to download and try. The demos will only be available over the course of the week, and the aim is to recreate the gaming convention experience in people’s homes.

In related news, Microsoft announced that the xCloud streaming service will be available with Xbox Game Pass Ultimate from September. Users subscribed will be able to stream their library of games to a variety of smart devices.
