At Xbox we’ve been hard at work and are excited to share more of our plans for one of the gaming industry’s biggest annual events. That’s right: E3 is just under two months away and we’ve got a great show lined up for gaming fans around the world. From our briefing to our fan events, the Xbox Experience to the Xbox Official Gear Shop, this will be our biggest E3 presence ever and we can’t wait to share more about what we’ve got up our sleeves for the future. Whether you play your games on Xbox One or on a PC, are fans of RPGs, first-person shooters and everything in between, or just like watching others play games, there will be something for everyone at E3.

We start planning for E3 just days after the big show every year and we couldn’t be more excited for what we have in store for you this June. We’ll be kicking things off with our annual Xbox E3 2019 Briefing, which you can watch live beginning on Sunday, June 9 at 1 p.m. PDT. During the briefing, you’ll have a chance to check out everything from trailers for unannounced titles coming in 2019 and beyond to in-depth looks at previously announced games. You can watch the Xbox E3 2019 Briefing live beginning at 1 p.m. PDT on Sunday, June 9 on the official Xbox Mixer Channel or on the Mixer app for Xbox One and Windows 10.

The Mixer Dome will be bringing plenty of excitement to E3, featuring a variety of unique experiences you won’t want to miss, including our popular HypeZone LIVE, Mixer merchandise, a live DJ, and more you’ll have to see to believe.

Will Tuttle, Xbox Wire Editor in Chief, shared a recap of the latest episode of Inside Xbox. Read or watch the full VOD below:

Today, at a special episode of Inside Xbox broadcast directly from Great Britain at the Goodwood House, we gave fans a closer look at the highly anticipated Xbox One racing game Forza Horizon 4, talked to the creative talent behind Fortnite Battle Royale, revealed new titles coming soon to Xbox Game Pass like Wolfenstein: The New Order and Metro 2033 Redux, revealed mouse and keyboard support for Xbox One, and much more. For a full recap, read on below or watch the replay of Inside Xbox episode above.

New Forza Horizon 4 Launch Trailer

At the start of the show, we got our first look at a brand-new trailer for Forza Horizon 4. Dynamic seasons change everything at the world’s greatest automotive festival where you can go it alone or team up with others to explore beautiful and historic Great Britain in a shared open world. Collect, modify and drive over 450 cars; race, stunt, create, and explore – choose your own path to become a Horizon Superstar when Forza Horizon 4 Ultimate Edition launches exclusively on Xbox One and Windows 10 September 28; standard edition launches October 2.

Game Pass October Titles Revealed

Next up on the show was the first reveal of the new games entering the Xbox Game Pass catalog starting on October 1. With awesome titles like Wolfenstein: The Order, Metro 2033 Redux, LEGO Indiana Jones: The Original Adventures, and Forza Horizon 4, this month’s group of titles is as great as any we’ve seen enter the program. With over 100 great games available for one low monthly price, including highly-anticipated new Xbox One exclusives the day they’re released, plus more games added all the time, Xbox Game Pass gives you the ultimate freedom to play.

Games with Gold October Titles Revealed

As an added special,on today’s show we got our Games with Gold reveal for Xbox One and Xbox 360 for October! On Xbox One, battle it out in the kitchen in Overcooked! then get ready to defeat the forces of evil in Victor Vran. On Xbox 360 and Xbox One via Backward Compatibility, create movie magic in Stuntman: Ignition and take out a new batch of targets as Agent 47 in Hitman: Blood Money.

Talking with Playground Games’ Ralph Fulton

Graeme sat down with Ralph Fulton from Playground Games to talk about the launch of Forza Horizon 4, the reaction to the gameplay demo (available now) and sharing a few details about what the near future holds for fans for both Forza and Playground Games who joined the Microsoft family earlier this year.

Forza Horizon 4 Bond Car Reveals

Speaking of Playground Games, we had even more news to share on Forza Horizon 4 which is launching with some day one DLC and it’s a love letter to 007. With 10 classic James Bond cars on the way, and even some of the weirder ones, the only thing we’ll be missing is a properly shaken and stirred martini to make us feel like the super spy himself.

Fortnite Interview and Xbox One S Fornite Battle Royale Bundle

Getting ready to celebrate the first birthday of Fortnite Battle Royale, our very own Larry Hryb sat down with Nathan Mooney from Epic Games to look back on the year that was. A time before Ninja and Drake were besties, when Thanos appeared, and many other memorable moments. Mooney also shared what the future of Fortnite has in store for all of us. Not to mention the reveal of the Xbox One S Fortnite Battle Royale console bundle.

Route Creator Revealed for Forza Horizon 4

Next up were even more details for Forza Horizon 4 – the reveal of the much-requested fan feature: Route Creator. This in-game tool will allow fans to draw our their very own course in the world of FH4 and then share that online with the larger gaming community.

New Xbox Update Details

The first info for the next Xbox One update came through today as well, with features like Dolby Vision, new voice integration for Cortana and Alexa-enabled devices, and new details on Xbox Avatars. But in perhaps the biggest bit of news coming to Xbox…

Mouse and Keyboard Support for Xbox

Phil Spencer joined Inside Xbox for a very exciting piece of news: mouse and keyboard support for Xbox One. Soon, developers will be able to build mouse and keyboard support in their games if and how they choose — entirely at their discretion — and Xbox will support them in creating the right experience for their games to ensure an optimal and fair gaming experience. Warframe will be one of the first titles testing mouse and keyboard input when the feature arrives to Insider. We also announced that we’re partnering with Razer, a premiere peripheral manufacturer in the gaming hardware space, to bring you the best possible mouse and keyboard experience for this new functionality. We’ll have more details to share on mouse and keyboard support during our November episode of Inside Xbox.

Announcing X018

A global celebration all things Xbox filled with news, first looks, and surprises live streamed on the largest Inside Xbox episode ever. X018 will be hosted at the fourth-annual Xbox FanFest: Mexico City. While more than 10,000 fans will join us onsite, we hope millions of Xbox fans will join the celebration online. We will livestream X018 on Inside Xbox so fans all around the world can participate online.  Inside Xbox will air 3 – 5 pm central time on Saturday, Nov. 10, and fans can tune into Mixer throughout the weekend for additional X018 news.

Reach Out Worldwide Charity

Last year, Xbox teamed up with Cody Walker for Game4Paul3 and helped raise over a $150,000 for Reach Out World Wide. We’re getting everyone back together this year for another big charity stream, and we could not be more excited about this event. Catch the Game4Paul4 live stream on October 11.

Shadow of the Tomb Raider DLC Reveal

Shadow of the Tomb Raider may be the conclusion of the new Lara Croft trilogy, but there’s still plenty do to after the credits roll. In fact, seven-months-worth of tombs to explore. Larry raided Rich Brigg’s brain-space from Crystal Dynamics for an exclusive look at the first DLC coming this October on this episode of Inside Xbox.

The Forza Horizon 4 Seasons Simulator

We looked at the one-of-a-kind Forza Horizon 4 Seasons Simulator. The 360-degree booth is designed to mimic the changing seasons in Forza Horizon 4 where celebrities had to endure rain, snow, heat, and mud while they play the game on Xbox One X. Check out these stars battling all the elements on Inside Xbox.

Hollow Knight Interview

Hollow Knight is an incredible indie platformer that’s full of style and mystery, and it’s available on Xbox One right now. The Voidheart Edition on Xbox One means you get all the DLC included for free and is currently 20% for a limited time until October 2. Learn about this modern classic here on the show.

A Closer Look at the Forza Horizon 4 cover car: the McLaren Senna

Only 500 of these high-performance machines were made — and they’re completely sold out. The last one was auctioned off for close to three million dollars and Justine got to check out the cover vehicle for Forza Horizon 4 with Tanner Foust to find out why they’re so coveted.

McLaren Senna Stunt

Inspired by the cover car and spectacular showcase events in Forza Horizon 4, we staged an unprecedented head-to-head race at one of the world’s most iconic motor racing venues. The race saw a McLaren Senna take on the bikes in a straight fight to the top of the Goodwood Estate’s world-famous Hill Climb. And despite the bikes’ unconventionally direct route up the hill, including a few jaw-dropping jumps and tricks, the Senna’s incredible speed and power won out in the end.

Thanks to everyone who tuned in! We hope you enjoyed the show and we can’t wait to tell you all about next month’s episode in a few weeks.

It’s a great time to be an Xbox gamer! Hot on the heels of our record breaking E3 briefing, and the amazing reaction we’ve had from our fans, we’re excited to let you know that Xbox will be coming to gamescom in Cologne, Germany this August. We’ll be bringing a great line up of games from developers around the world that we can’t wait for gamers in Europe to get their hands on.

Here’s a quick overview of what we’ll be getting up to at the show this year:

Inside Xbox

This year at gamescom, we will be hosting a special episode of Inside Xbox, broadcast live from our Xbox booth in the Koelnmesse. Tune in on Tuesday, August 21, at 4:30 p.m. CEST (7:30 a.m. PDT) for lots of news, new Xbox One bundles and accessories, and features on upcoming titles that we can’t wait to tell you more about and perhaps even a few surprises!

You can catch the show on xbox.comMixerTwitchYouTubeFacebook, and Twitter.

Xbox FanFest: gamescom 2018

Xbox FanFest will return to gamescom once again this year, this year on the Rhein River! FanFest will happen for one incredible night on Thursday, August 23.  More information on tickets and all the special activities happening on this day will be revealed very soon.   Be sure to track #XboxFanFest for all updates.

Xbox Booth

The Xbox booth will feature a fantastic line up of 25 games across a diverse range of genres – we’ll be making sure everyone has a way to play and have fun! If you’re coming to the show, do make sure you pay us a visit – we’re in Hall 8 of the Koelnmesse (North entrance).

This is the first time that European gamers will have the chance to jump in and try out many of our newest gameplay experiences including the open world freedom of driving through stunning beautiful historic Britain in Forza Horizon 4 or embarking on a journey to unravel Ori’s true destiny in this emotionally engaging, hand-crafted, story-driven adventure in Ori and the Will of the Wisps. Gamers will also have the opportunity to get the first ever hands-on with State of Decay 2’s Daybreak Pack, an all-new mode set to release in September.

And you won’t want to miss the PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds experience, featuring a new mode for Xbox One, playable for the first time at gamescom – and only in the Xbox booth.

Mixer Booth

Microsoft’s livestreaming service Mixer will also be at gamescom, located right next to the Xbox booth in Hall 8, where they will be bringing back the always popular HypeZone LIVE experience! Attendees will have the chance to earn victory in battle royale matches and even walk away with big prizes, while everyone at home can watch the turmoil unfold.  Get a head start on the competition by watching some HypeZone action on Mixer.com now.
