Microsoft will kick off its annual E3 press briefing at 9:30 a.m. PT on Monday, June 13, the company announced today.

The show will focus on "the newest games, tech and features" for both Xbox One and Windows 10, according to the E3 hub on the Xbox website. Note that the company didn't mention Xbox 360; the 10-and-a-half-year-old console was discontinued last month.

Microsoft's press briefing is in its usual Monday morning slot, but this year, Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference will overlap with E3. The WWDC 2016 keynote is set to begin at 10 a.m. on June 13, just half an hour after the Xbox showcase starts.

Microsoft will livestream its press conference on the Xbox website and Xbox consoles, and it will also broadcast the event live on Spike TV. Afterward, Geoff Keighley will host an Xbox Briefing Post-Show Special on his YouTube Live @ E3 show; that stream will begin at 4 p.m. on June 13. Microsoft will also hold its own Xbox Daily Show from 4-5 p.m. on June 14 and June 15.

Once again, 500 fans will have the opportunity to get an inside look at Microsoft's E3 week through Xbox FanFest. Ticket holders will be able to attend the company's E3 press briefing and partake in other special events.
