The Microsoft Xbox E3 2018 press conference is on June 10 - a full two days before the E3 show kicks off properly. With that said the Electronic Entertainment Expo still has a lot to be excited about this year.

"Days of Play is a global promotion celebrating our passionate PlayStation community with eleven days of deals at participating retailers while supplies last", Sony's Brian Fujimoto explains.

Check out our guide to Bethesda's E3 2018 press conference for more details on how and where to watch it, what we can expect, and the biggest highlights from Bethesda's E3 conference previous year.

GameSpot will also host a stream of the conference, so you can tune in right here to see all of Microsoft's announcements, or through our social media and streaming platforms below.

The conference has previously been used by Microsoft to show off exclusive titles, new IPs and state of the art hardware (the Xbox One X was originally shown off at Microsoft's E3 presser, for example). We could also see a Nintendo Switch port of Fortnite, a Star Fox racing title, and the launch of N64 Classic Edition. There are only four games confirmed, but with E3 2018 about to begin there's every chance that some unannounced titles will make a surprise appearance throughout the week. But based on leaks so far we can expect Microsoft to announce titles like Halo 6, Gears of War 5, Forza Horizon 4, Crackdown 3, Sea of Thieves, and Ori and the Will of Wisps.

We know a little bit about what Bethesda is going to talk about at E3 2018. What else Bethesda might be planning for the show is up in the air. We'll find out more today. The Last of US Part 2 is going to be another exclusive game for the PlayStation 4. Of course, most gamers will be hoping for an update on the highly anticipated Final Fantasy VII Remake. Ubisoft, however, will likely spend the most time on the long-awaited Beyond Good & Evil 2.

Another game confirmed to be at E3 is a brand new Assassin's Creed, which is to be named Odyssey, and by the looks of the logo and brief clip posted to Twitter, is taking the historical stealth series to ancient Greece. Time will tell, but it wouldn't be entirely shocking to see a new game in the franchise announced.
