It’s less than a week until Xbox Games Showcase and Starfield Direct. On Sunday, June 11, our huge double feature will fill you in on upcoming games from Xbox Game Studios and our incredible partners around the world, and offer a deep-dive into Bethesda Game Studios’ highly anticipated Starfield.
There’s nothing quite like watching our Summer showcases live so, with that in mind, here are all the details you need to join us in celebrating the future of gaming.
What time does Xbox Games Showcase begin? Sunday, June 11, at 10am Pacific time / 1pm Eastern time / 6pm UK time.
What time does Starfield Direct begin? Immediately following the Xbox Games Showcase.
How do I watch? Xbox Games Showcase will be streamed live on official Xbox and Bethesda channels, including the below:
The show will also be streamed out simultaneously on regional Xbox and Bethesda channels around the globe.

A full show recap will go live immediately following the end of Starfield Direct.
Co-streamer and Content Creator notes for the Xbox Games Showcase: We at Xbox greatly appreciate any co-stream efforts and aim to ensure you have a smooth experience if you choose to do so. However, due to forces beyond our control, we cannot guarantee that glitches or disruptions by bots and other automated software won’t interfere with your co-stream. For those planning to create post-show breakdowns of the Xbox Showcase in the form of Video on Demand (VOD) coverage, we recommend you do not use any audio containing copyrighted music to avoid any action by automated bots, and to also consult the terms of service for your service provider.
Co-streamer and Content Creator notes for the Starfield Direct: The Starfield Direct contains no licensed music tracks, and is co-streaming friendly! We invite you and your audiences across the galaxy to tune in for watch parties, and we can’t wait to see the Video-on-Demand content you create with the Starfield Direct footage afterwards, too.
Will there be an Extended Stream? Yes! Xbox Games Showcase Extended will air on Tuesday, June 13, starting at 10am Pacific time / 1pm Eastern time / 6pm UK time. The show will feature in-depth interviews focused on the news from our Xbox Games Showcase as well as game updates from our partners.

In the days that follow, we will add Arabic, Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese, Hebrew, Hindi, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Polish and Castilian Spanish to Xbox’s YouTube page.
