We're going to be covering when it starts, where you can watch it, and what we hope to see.
When Do Things Start?
E3 2021 is about to start, but the Xbox & Bethesda Games Showcase isn't until Sunday. That doesn't mean there isn't anything to talk about, though.
The Showcase is due to begin at 10:00 PST / 13:00 EST / 18:00 BST on June 13th and we're expecting it to last around two hours, looking at the full schedule.
As you might imagine, this is one of the larger presentations at E3 2021, only matched by Nintendo's Direct and Treehouse Live. Ubisoft's UbiForward is also one to look forward to. However, everyone's expecting the Xbox & Bethesda Games Showcase to be the highlight of the event for a number of reasons.
Where Can You Watch The Showcase?
This is the important one. It's all well and good knowing when things are happening, but that doesn't help a lot if you don't know where to look.
Throughout E3 2021, The ESA is making the most of its Online Portal and mobile app to update everyone with everything that's going on. You can sign up for registration now and we're expecting things to properly start later today, June 11th. The Online Portal and App don't work as well as they should, though...
Thankfully, a couple of classics are back to save the day. As always, we're expecting Xbox's YouTube account to broadcast the Xbox & Bethesda Games Showcase stream and we've had confirmation that it will also be available on Xbox's Twitch account.
What Do We Want To See?
Is "everything" a good answer to this question? We didn't think so...
The Xbox & Bethesda Games Showcase is going to be packed with new and exciting content and there's almost too much to talk about.
We know that EA DICE's recently-announced Battlefield 2042 is going to be getting a bit more of a run out during the event, with a Gameplay Trailer expected, but what else could be shown?
Halo Infinite is the big one. Xbox's promotional images for the event exclusively use Halo imagery and there has to be a reason for that. An updated look at the game would put a lot of concerns to bed, in any case.
In addition to this, we'd like to see more about the future of the Gears of War franchise. It's been a little while since Gears 5 now and we're all eager to learn where JD and Kait are going next. There are also spin-off titles like Gears Tactics worth talking about too!
