Microsoft's E3 2016 press conference to be held on June 13

It's already been a pretty exciting year so far for gamers - from awesome new titles such as Quantum Break and Tom Clancy's The Division, to the prospect of cross-platform play, and the rise of virtual reality gaming too.

With only a quarter of the year out of the way, there's still plenty to look forward to - and in a few weeks' time, we'll find out a great deal more about what's in store for the rest of the year, at the annual E3 gaming expo.

E3 2016 will be held in Los Angeles from June 14 to 16, and Microsoft will be among those in the gaming industry to showcase their latest offerings there.

Microsoft told GameSpot that it will hold its press conference the day before doors open at E3. The event will begin on June 13 at:

  • 9:30am PDT
  • 12:30am EDT
  • 4:30pm GMT
  • 5:30pm BST
  • 6:30pm CEST
  • 10:00pm IST
  • 2:30am AEST (June 14)

Microsoft didn't reveal anything more today about exactly what it has lined up for its E3 press conference, but as in previous years, we can reasonably expect to see a ton of trailers and in-game footage from some of the biggest titles on the way to the Xbox One in the coming months.

Additionally, Xbox One owners can also look forward to learning more about new features coming to the console. At the company's Build 2016 developer conference last month, Xbox head Phil Spencer said that Microsoft will share more details at E3 about the version of the new Windows 10 Anniversary Update that's heading to the Xbox One this summer.

Among the new features already confirmed to be on the way are support for Universal Windows Platform apps on the console - which will include the merging of the Xbox Store with the main Windows Store - along with Microsoft's Cortana digital assistant, and background audio playback.
