So far in 2021, we have had Nintendo Direct and State of Play, in which Nintendo and Sony showed their next games for this year. Microsoft was missing, until today, which has just confirmed its first online gaming event of the year. And it is a new format, which will be focused on indie games, and that will leave us new trailers and gameplay of more than 25 games.
The event is officially called … / twitchgaming Showcase: [email protected]. For short, we’ll call it Xbox indies event ([email protected] is the name of the Xbox independent game publisher program, an acronym for Independent and Digital). And let’s go with the important thing: it’s Friday next week, March 26, at 5:00 p.m. Spanish time (CET).

New trailers and gameplay of more than 25 games like STALKER 2, Second Extinction, The Ascent, The Wild at Heart, Voidtrain, Twleve Minutes, Exo One and more, from studios like DrinkBox, Curve Digital, Devolver Digital or Dear Villagers. Although they do not mention it in the press release, in the cover image we also see the Spanish Narita boy, which looks amazing.
There will also be announcements about future indie games coming to Xbox Game Pass. In one way or another, we will see more than 100 games from independent developers from around the world at the presentation.
By the way, about the time, Xbox warns that the event occurs in the window in which the United States has already changed the time, but not the rest of the world: there it will be at 9:00 AM PDT. In Spain, at European Central Time, it is at 5:00 p.m., 4:00 p.m. in the United Kingdom. It will only be broadcast on Twitch, on the Xbox channel or from Twitch Gaming.
