Guide to the Summer Game Fest

The showcase of this year’s Summer Game Fest will take place on Thursday, September 8th. June at 12 p.m. PT. sprinkled. You can find it in all the usual places, including YouTube, Twitch, Steam. If you don’t know when Noon Pacific is in your time zone, here’s a handy guide (or check out the Tweet below).

Based on the teasers so far, some of the things we’re looking forward to at Geoff Keighley’s big showcase are:

The first gameplay of Mortal Kombat 1
Fortnite New Season, Fortnite Wilds
Baldurstor 3
Call of Duty: Warzone Season 4
Alan Wake 2 with a performance by Sam Lake
New Gameplay for the Immortals of Ulm
The last of Warframe
Something from Hideo Kojima, probably

The Livestream is the centerpiece, but the Summer Game Fest also includes an in-person event that we will be attending – look for previews and interviews from that one soon.

The name Summer Game Fest can also refer to the whole series of independent and professional events that take place earlier in and around E3, which was canceled this year (and maybe forever). There are two of them right after the live broadcast of the Summer Game Fest: developer Day and the developer directly.

More shows are scattered this week and early next week. Sunday is particularly busy, with our own PC game show, followed by the Xbox and Starfield showcases. Our complete calendar of the 2023 summer showcase offers a complete picture.
