The gamescom gaming trade fair is coming back for its 13th edition this week, and Microsoft will kick things off with a 90 minutes Xbox stream starting at 10 AM PT this morning. The show will be live-streamed on the official Xbox channels on Twitch, YouTube, Facebook, and Twitter, with a 4K/60FPS rebroadcast to follow on the Xbox YouTube channel.
In the teaser for the event, the Xbox team promised to deliver "updates on some of the biggest games coming to Xbox, upcoming releases on Xbox Game Pass, and more.” If today's show should focus on previously announced games from Microsoft and its partners, all eyes should be on upcoming Xbox Game Studios titles such as Halo Infinite, Forza Horizon 5, or Age of Empires IV.
