Here’s How To Watch This Week’s Xbox Partner Preview Showcase In Australia

X will try and give it to ya once more

The sun rises on Xbox’s new empire later this week as we prepare for a third-party focused streaming event on Thursday morning, the Xbox Partner Preview Showcase. While Microsoft’s latest acquisition was finalised a little too close to the showcase to be included, we can expect around 20 minutes of trailers and hype pieces on a “fresh mix of indie games and familiar favourites” according to Microsoft. So while we won’t be seeing anything from Activision Blizzard King, we should at least be checking in with some major studios like Remedy with Alan Wake 2, Like A Dragon makers Ryu Ga Gotoku, and Studio Wildcard’s Ark: Survival Evolved.

Harckoning back to the good old E3 days, Aussies will have to be up at the crack of dawn to catch the showcase. If you’re in Sydney, Melbourne, Canberra or Hobart, 4:00am AEDT is your slot, elsewhere Adelaide will catch the event at 3:30am ACDT, Brisbane at 3:00am AEST, Darwin starts pushing it at 2:30am ACST and those of you in Perth may as well just stay up for the 1:00am AWST broadcast.

The showcase itself will be livestreamed in picturesque 4K/60fps on the official Xbox YouTube page, and still a totally valid 1080p/60fps on the Xbox Twitch page.

Are you keen to check out what Xbox is showing off? Are you or your loved ones worried you’ll be absorbed into Microsoft’s corporate fold next?

One part pretentious academic and one part goofy dickhead, James is often found defending strange games and frowning at the popular ones, but he's happy to play just about everything in between. An unbridled love for FromSoftware's pantheon, a keen eye for vibes first experiences, and an insistence on the Oxford comma have marked his time in the industry.
