How long is Xbox & Bethesda Games Showcase Extended?
Microsoft has confirmed that the Xbox & Bethesda Games Showcase will be around 90 minutes long. This makes it almost as long as last weekend’s main event.
How to watch Xbox & Bethesda Games Showcase
Xbox & Bethesda Games Showcase Extended will stream in a variety of places, including through the official Xbox pages on YouTube, Twitch, and TikTok, among others. GameSpot will also broadcast a live stream of the showcase, which you can watch above or at GameSpot YouTube.
What to expect at Xbox & Bethesda Games Showcase Extended
Microsoft has said that the extended event will include “new trailers” and “deeper looks” at news from the main showcase. Additionally, game developers will be available to discuss their projects. Since the event will focus on the games shown during the main event, that could mean we’ll hear more about titles like the new Forza Motorsport, Bethesda’s Starfield and Redfall, and Minecraft: Legends.
Xbox marketing chief Aaron Greenberg clarified that the extended event will focus on “more contextual interviews” about the titles shown during the main event.
Since many are asking what to expect for tomorrow. You saw all of our news on Showcase on Sunday, tomorrow’s extended broadcast will include interviews with more context and discussions with the people behind some of those titles. Tune in at 10am PT to join us. https://t.co/yGtVntYWqy
