Microsoft’s Xbox E3 Briefing, the second major press event of E3 2018, will be going live at 1:00PM PDT (2PM Mountain, 4PM Eastern) and streaming their conference primarily on the Xbox Mixer channel, but can also be viewed on YouTube, Twitch, Twitter, Facebook, and through the XLEi App on Xbox One.
We will be covering the event through a liveblog below, sharing screenshots and news digest as it comes out. At the time of this writing (12:30 PM MDT), almost 35,000 viewers are tuned in, and climbing with every passing moment. Last year, shortly after Microsoft purchased and rebranded Beam into Mixer as we know it, they offered games and DLC codes to those tuned into their channel. If you have a Mixer account / tied it in to your Xbox Live account, make sure that you’re signed in ahead of time in the event that Microsoft doles out similar rewards this year. If not, you have a bit of time yet to do so. This year, they’re including a free pre-order of Outer Wilds, an ID@Xbox indie title, and promise to include more rewards above-and-beyond.
Tune in to the @Xbox briefing tomorrow @ 1pm PT to snag a free Pre-Order of the unreleased @ID_Xbox game Outer Wilds! Plus we’ve got even more digital content in #Mixpot! (quantities limited)https://t.co/CdrKGarGyO pic.twitter.com/9r7XniJVWU
