Microsoft will have lots to talk about, at least in terms of their future Xbox One plans, later this month at the massive Gamescom convention in Cologne, Germany. Much of that news will come via a press event that will be live streamed to the rest of the world on August 12.

In a new YouTube video, Microsoft reveals that the live stream will begin at 8 am Eastern Time, and the press briefing will be followed by an after show with even more info on what Microsoft has planned for its Xbox One console, along with interviews with games developers. On August 11, Microsoft will also live stream the world premiere of footage from Call of Duty Advanced Warfare's multiplayer modes, starting at 1 pm Eastern time.

Gamescom is by far the biggest games convention in the world. The organizers claim that 340,000 people attended the event in 2013. Microsoft will likely use Gamescom to announce more specific plans to launch the Xbox One in over 25 new countries and territories, including many in Europe, in September.

What do you think Microsoft will reveal at Gamescom in less than two weeks?
