Even though there will be no E3 this year, Xbox will still host its traditional showcase event this weekend, just before it was due to start.

It’s scheduled as part of Summer Game Fest instead and will effectively be split into two segments – the first to highlight all the games coming to Xbox consoles in the following months from Microsoft itself and third parties, the second dedicated to Starfield.

Here then is how to watch the Xbox Games Showcase and subsequent Starfield Direct events live.
