Summer Game Fest 2023: follow the big conference on video games live

This Thursday, June 8 marks the start of the summer of video games, with several conferences normally rich in announcements. The Summer Game Fest show launches hostilities tonight at 9 p.m.

This year, there is no E3, a major video game meeting that allows you to fill up on announcements. But let the enthusiasts be reassured: there is always the Summer Game Fest to discover the novelties of tomorrow. Organized by Geoff Keighley, also host of The Game Awards ceremony in December, the event kicks off this Thursday, June 8. It will be followed by other shows, such as that of Microsoft on Sunday June 11 or that of Ubisoft the next day.

How to follow the Summer Game Fest 2023 conference?

Don’t plan anything tonight if you want to follow the opening conference of the Summer Game Fest 2023: see you at 9 p.m. French time. Luckily, it won’t be at the same time as the semi-final between Novak Djokovic and Carlos Alcaraz at Roland-Garros (it’s scheduled for Friday).

  • When ? Thursday, June 8, 2023 at 9 p.m. French time;
  • Or ? Here, or on YouTube ;
  • Quoi ? The opening conference of the Summer Game Fest, which should last approximately 2 hours.

What to expect from this Summer Game Fest 2023?

Strangely, there is not a phenomenal enthusiasm around the Summer Game Fest, while we should be delighted with the projects that will be shown there. This is all the more true since Sony is far from having convinced with its PlayStation Showcase released at the end of May. Geoff Keighley and his many partners normally have a good part to play to make players dream – even though we are experiencing a rather incredible first half of 2023 in terms of outstanding outings (The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, Diablo IVwaiting Final Fantasy XVI).

The big headliner of Summer Game Fest 2023 will be Mortal Kombat 1, which says a lot about expectations to be tempered. We will also discover gameplay for Alan Wake 2 or the new seasons of Call of Duty and Fortnite. We still put a small coin on the suite of Death Stranding, Hideo Kojima and Geoff Keighley being very close. In the big odds, there is the new Call of Duty, the future Tomb Raider (developed with Amazon’s money) or even the sequel to Final Fantasy VII Remake.

The advantage of a more measured hype is that you take less risk of being disappointed. Maybe Summer Game Fest 2023 will be an amazing conference, but there are big doubts about that. And, if so, Microsoft will have to shine on Sunday.
