Here are the easiest ways to watch Xbox’s Gamescom 2021 live stream! Microsoft is set to take centre stage at the virtual event this year, hosting a Gamescom pre-launch stream that promises information on some of the company’s most anticipated games for Xbox Series X and S. 

This year’s Gamescom will be hosted as a virtual event, mirroring what we saw from last year’s presentation. Microsoft will be the first company to host a live stream for the event, hitting the stage on Tuesday, August 24th for a pre-launch stream.

As expected, the company has promised big news on some of its most anticipated games from 2021. It will likely feature a number of first looks, new trailers, gameplay footage, and more. We also expect updates on what’s to come from next year’s Games Pass.

Games Pass aside, many fans are awaiting updates on Halo Infinite and Forza Horizon 5 – with both set for an official release at the end of this year.

Luckily, fans of Microsoft will have plenty of ways to tune into this year’s Xbox Gamescom live stream. Furthermore, with convenient timing for UK fans, the stream should suit most people’s needs.
