The Xbox & Bethesda Games Showcase 2022 is set to take place in an online event later on Sunday. As is the case with most events held during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, the Xbox and Bethesda Showcase will be held virtually — on the Internet. Both Xbox and Bethesda, now owned by Microsoft, have been tight lipped on details of announcements that will be made this year at the Xbox and Bethesda Showcase event. But we expect details on Xbox's upcoming gaming line-up, updates to existing titles, along with new releases coming to its game subscription offering Xbox Game Pass. You can also expect to hear more details about delayed Xbox games, including some from Bethesda.
These include Starfield, Redfall, Stalker 2, and other titles. Xbox could also announce additional updates and improvements to popular titles like Forza Horizon 5 and Halo Infinite at the event. And as always, there's likely to be a surprise or two. Microsoft has already announced an Xbox Games Showcase Extended — for Tuesday, June 14 — where it will broadcast new trailers, offer deeper looks at the news from the Xbox & Bethesda Games Showcase, and feature conversations with game creators. But before that happens, here's how you can tune into tonight's Xbox & Bethesda Games Showcase.
The Xbox & Bethesda Games Showcase 2022 event will begin at 10:30pm IST/ 10am PDT/ 6pm BST on Sunday, June 12. You can use this handy converter tool to check when the Xbox and Bethesda Games Showcase livestream will begin in your region.
According to Xbox Games and Marketing GM Aaron Greenberg, the Xbox and Bethesda event is expected to run for around 90 minutes — that would make it five minutes longer than the 2021 Xbox and Bethesda event.
You can watch the Xbox & Bethesda Games Showcase event live on Xbox's official YouTube, Facebook, Twitter and Twitch, TikTok accounts. The event will also be streamed live on the Xbox website and on Bethesda's YouTube channel. You can also watch the event live from the Twitch player embedded below.

Like previous Xbox events that have been streamed live, the upcoming Xbox & Bethesda Games Showcase event will max out at 1080p 60fps. However, Microsoft says that the showcase will be re-broadcast in 4K at 60fps on the Xbox YouTube channel after the premiere — Xbox will announce the availability of the higher resolution stream via Twitter.
