It looks like Microsoft's recently renamed streaming service Mixer is looking to replace Twitch as the E3 2017 livestream for Xbox One fans. One of the largest entertainment conventions will begin this coming week with a variety of press briefings and seven days of news, and Mixer wants to cover it all, at least for those tuning in on Xbox One.
Mixer will be hosting exclusive content, giveaways, and a live broadcast from the show floor at the Los Angeles Convention Center, announced the blog post today. That means that the Xbox E3 Briefing starting on Sunday at 2 p.m. PDT will be available through the Mixer app in 4k for the first time ever. It will even be available in English, German, French, Italian, Spanish, and Portuguese.
But what Mixer is really bringing to the table to garner loyal fans is the Xbox E3 MixPot. If you log onto your Mixer account to watch the Xbox E3 Briefing on Sunday, you'll receive a grab-bag of digital content after the week is over. But only if your Mixer account is attached to the Microsoft/Xbox Live account before then. Otherwise, no further details about what's actually being given away have been revealed except "free digital games and DLC."
You can also tune into Xbox at E3 broadcasts with more giveaways throughout the week.
