The London-set X019 event of Microsoft kicks off later today with a special edition of its Inside Xbox stream, and Microsoft is calling this its biggest show yet. Just as last year's segment, the Xbox team is preparing to show off new trailers, gameplay reveals, and bunch more surprises regarding Xbox One and PC titles.
The stream is set to begin at 12PM PT / 3PM ET / 8PM GMT today, and Microsoft is going live across essentially every streaming service available simultaneously, letting fans catch the show on the Xbox Mixer, YouTube, Twitch, Facebook, and Twitter channels. The company has also set up dedicated channels for accommodating visual and hearing-impaired persons.
Note that watching through Mixer has some benefits attached, with Microsoft offering an Obsidian Sea of Thieves cosmetic, a $5 Gears POP! X019 Promotional Pack, and a chance to win a year's worth of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate to anyone tuning in through its streaming service.
As for what we can expect to see during the show, the company has said 12 Xbox Game Studios-built titles will hit the stage, which will include some new games among them. Other publishers and developers like Respawn Entertainment, Devolve Digital, and Annapurna Interactive, will be presenting their wares too.
Moreover, Xbox Game Pass subscriptions for both console and PC will get new games announced, possibly beating last year's record of 16. Microsoft has also been teasing that it will have some big Project xCloud news to share, which could be an official release date announcement for the game streaming service.
Going into specifics, Age of Empires 4 is finally getting its long-time-coming first gameplay showcase today as well, letting RTS fans see what exactly Relic has been up to in recent years. This could also be where Obsidian will reveal any upcoming story expansions to its recent hit RPG The Outer Worlds. In addition, with ongoing Halo: Reach tests on PC and Xbox One for Halo: MCC, there is a possibility of a release date announcement for the fan-favorite shooter.
Catch the stream live or keep an eye on Neowin to find out about the biggest announcements Microsoft is revealing later today.
