How to watch the Xbox Partner Preview

We hope to host the Xbox Partner Preview livestream closer the time.

Alternatively, you will be able to watch it on Xbox's channels on YouTube and Twitch.

What's the running time of the Xbox Partner Preview and what games will be shown?

According to Microsoft, there will be no Activision Blizzard announcements or new games shown during the Xbox Partner Preview. And that's not really surprising as this is a showcase for third-party games, so no longer applies to Activision titles after the acquisition.

Instead, we'll be treated to around 20 minutes of trailers from other studios and publishers.

This will include new footage of Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth, Alan Wake 2 (which will launch at the end of the week), Ark: Survival Ascended, and Dungeons of Hinterberg.

We're especially interested in seeing more of the latter indie game, as it wowed us when we went hands-on with a preview version during Gamescom 2023.

There will also be information on new games coming to Xbox Game Pass in the near future.

The show will be able to view in 4K 60fps on YouTube if you want to see the games at their best. We'll update this page with the live feed as soon as it is available.
