Xbox E3 2016 briefing set for June 13 with tons of streaming to follow

TODO alt text

Microsoft will host its annual Xbox E3 briefing on Monday, June 13, starting at 9:30 am PDT / 5:30 pm BST. The company laid out its overall coverage plans for the conference on the Xbox Wire, and they include a metric junk-ton of streaming. Someday every element of E3 will be beamed directly into our brains and I'll be able to skip all this "travel" business, but I digress.

As you might expect, Microsoft is keeping its stage show plans beyond the start time on the down low. Though it looks like maybe, we just might get some announcements from the Gears of War 4 folks including The Coalition studio head Rod Fergusson.


You'll be able to watch the E3 briefing on the Xbox Live Events Player on Xbox One and Xbox 360, as well as on the Xbox Twitch Channel, or on Spike TV in the US and Canada. You could also camp out at a Microsoft Store and watch it there, but as I understand it the "bring your own beanbag chair" policy varies by location. Might want to call ahead.

After the briefing concludes, Microsoft plans to continue with three more days of streaming announcements, interviews, and new trailers. You can tune in to regular broadcasts throughout the day on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, and check out special segments hosted by Xbox Live director of programming Larry "Major Nelson" Hryb on Tuesday and Wednesday from 4 to 5 pm.

If you plan on being in LA during E3 week, you could also sign up to win one of 500 tickets to Xbox FanFest 2016. Check the Xbox E3 Online Experience for more details.
