Watch Xbox’s new Partner Preview showcase for a peek at what’s next

Xbox livestream promises ‘a fresh mix of indie games and familiar favorites’

Microsoft is hyping up what’s next for Xbox with a new showcase called the Xbox Partner Preview, which promises “30 minutes of straight-up trailers [and] new footage” from games like Alan Wake 2, Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth, Dungeons of Hinterberg, and Ark: Survival Ascended. (That last one is a current-generation remaster of Ark: Survival Evolved, running on Unreal Engine 5.)

Wednesday’s Xbox Partner Preview will focus on games coming to Xbox and Windows, as well as new info on upcoming Game Pass titles, Microsoft said. Just don’t expect any major reveals or Game Pass additions related to Microsoft’s recent acquisition of Activision Blizzard. The “partner” part of this whole stream appears to exclude games from Microsoft’s first-party studios, so appearances from the likes of Hellblade 2, Avowed, Fable, and Perfect Dark are highly unlikely.

Xbox Partner Preview will kick off at 10 a.m. PDT/1 p.m. EDT on Wednesday, Oct. 25. It can be streamed live from Xbox’s YouTube and Twitch channels. You can watch the livestream, via YouTube, in the embedded video above.
