Xbox Gamescom

Kicking off the week with some big news, Xbox has announced its Gamescom 2021 plans, which include a dedicated stream filled with in-depth updates, Xbox Game Pass news and more.

Ahead of Gamescom Opening Night Live on August 25, Xbox will host its own warm-up stream on August 24 at 10am PT / 1pm ET / 6pm BST / 7pm CEST via YouTube, Twitch, Facebook Gaming and Twitter. Hosted by Parris Lilly and Kate Yeager, the show will be filled with updates on upcoming Xbox games, along with Xbox Game Pass titles.

You’ll get in-depth updates from some of our previously announced Xbox Game Studios titles alongside some of our third-party partners, including some of the incredible titles coming to Xbox this holiday, upcoming releases to our monthly subscription service, Xbox Game Pass, and much more.

Not only that, but along with Gamescom Opening Night Live and Xbox's own stream, Bethesda will also be hosting Bethesda MainStream for several days from August 26. Details are thin on what the shows will contain, but you can tune in via the company's German Twitch channel.

There can't possibly be any more, right? Wrong! An Xbox Gamescom sale will also be taking place with up to 75% off select titles. After the busy E3 period, Xbox is showing no signs of slowing down, and it should be a good show.
