The Xbox Partner Preview is now over. Here's where you can catch up on every trailer and announcement from the Xbox Partner Preview.
It hasn't been long since Xbox's last major digital appearance during Tokyo Game Show 2023, but the company is already moving on to the next big thing. On Monday, Xbox announced the Xbox Partner Preview, a new show format airing in a couple days that will focus on exciting and upcoming projects from third-party Xbox studios and partners.
The Xbox Partner Preview will go live on Wednesday, Oct. 25, 2023, at 10:00 a.m. PT / 1:00 p.m. ET / 6:00 p.m. BST. The show will last for approximately thirty minutes, during which viewers can expect to see brand-new trailers and gameplay footage. Xbox has confirmed that we'll see upcoming indie games from smaller teams, more additions to Xbox and PC Game Pass, and new updates on exciting Xbox and Windows PC titles from studios like Remedy Entertainment, Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio, and Studio Wildcard.
So, what games can we expect to see? Well, Xbox has obviously not given us a full list of every feature from the show, but we do know that we'll see Alan Wake 2, Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth, Dungeons of Hinterberg, and Ark: Survival Ascended. We'll undoubtedly see many more, but I'm sure a lot of people will tune in just to see more Alan Wake 2 and Like a Dragon footage. Either way, some of the best upcoming Xbox games are bound to be there.
As a side note, Xbox has specifically stated Activision Blizzard will not be at the event. The major video games publisher Activision Blizzard King is now a member of the Xbox family, but there will no new announcements or game reveals from the publisher during the event, nor will we see any Activision Blizzard games added to Xbox Game Pass at this time.
