How to watch the Xbox Indie Games Showcase

[email protected] is airing exclusively on Twitch this year - you can find the stream on the Xbox Twitch channel, or on the Twitch Gaming channel

You don't have to be signed up for Twitch to watch along. However, if you want to chat with other viewers - or want to be notified when the livestream starts - you can sign up for a free account on the Twitch website

What to expect from the Xbox Indie Games Showcase

Probably the most exciting thing about the [email protected] are the trailer reveals. So far we know that there will be footage from the likes of Second Extinction, The Ascent, The Wild at Heart, Voidtrain, Exo One and S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2.

There will also be announcements about new titles coming to both Xbox and Xbox Game Pass from studios and developers, including DrinkBox Studios, Curve Digital, Devolver Digital, Dear Villagers and more. 

As this is an Indie showcase, what we won't see are any mainstream game reveals such as Halo Infinite or Bethesda titles. These will probably be reserved for the Inside Xbox showcase, which usually takes place a little later on in the year.
