Xbox's Gamescom 2021 stream is starting up, so come pop in


A preview of the Xbox holiday lineup

Are you ready to hear about a whole bunch of upcoming games, many of which will probably be coming to Xbox Game Pass? Well too bad — or good! Whichever it is. It’s Gamescom week, and today, the big event is the 90-minute Xbox stream.

Xbox’s Gamescom showcase is starting at 10:00 a.m. Pacific, which means I probably should’ve begun writing this watch-with-us article a lot sooner.

I can’t say I have super high expectations — it’s been a year, again — but there will be cool games, for sure. I feel like many of us are more fixated on Opening Night Live.

Here’s how the team positions the stream: it’ll feature “in-depth updates from previously announced Xbox Game Studios titles alongside our partners, including incredible titles coming to Xbox this holiday, upcoming releases to Xbox Game Pass, and much more.”

Best of all, we have an excuse to hang out in the comments for a while.
