Where to watch the Xbox E3 2018 press conference online

We will be hosting the livestream of the press conference here on Pocket-lint, starting on Saturday 9 June. You will see a build-up video before the event starts on the Sunday.

It will also be available on Microsoft’s own video service, Mixer.

What to expect at the Xbox E3 2018 briefing

As well as some obvious candidates that are yet to come this year, such as Crackdown 3 even though it has been delayed until February 2019, we fully expect one or two big surprises at the Xbox event.

One of those is rumoured to be Gears of War 5. This might even be saved until the very end as a “one more thing”, with JD Fenix maybe giving you a cheeky look back over his shoulder in a pre-rendered sequence.

Forza Horizon 4 would be slightly less of a surprise, considering it’s the next in the Forza cycle, but will be equally as welcome considering how good Horizon 3 is.

We should also see more on Ori and the Will of the Wisps – originally announced last year – plus a fair few other, smaller Xbox One exclusives. And there will be several third party games on show – maybe even Warner Bros’ Hitman 2. We can only hope.

We doubt there will be any new hardware though, apart from the Xbox Adaptive Controller formerly announced last month.
