For Elder Scrolls Online, Zenimax has already confirmed that the ESO Global Reveal Event will take place at 12:45 PST/3:45 PM EST. This should reveal what’s next for the MMORPG. Last year’s Legacy of the Breton theme followed, which included the High Isle expansion, the new addictive Tales of Tribute minigame, new companions, and more. Hopefully we’ll see where we’re going in the next chapter, or maybe a new class? Of course, you’ll have to watch the live demo to find out, but it’s teasing that it will be “the game’s biggest update this year.”
How to watch the Xbox demo
If you can’t wait to watch the live presentation, you can watch the stream from official channels such as Twitch and Youtube, as well as Bethesda’s Twitch and Youtube channels. The presentation will air on Wednesday, January 25 at 12:00 p.m. PTS/3:00 p.m. EST.
The overall presentation length for Developer_Direct is still unknown. Microsoft promised “more gameplay and exciting new details” for Forza Motorsport. There will also be an “inside look at PvP multiplayer” in Minecraft Legends. Redfall’s open world will feature combat insights, customization, bosses, and more.
There are still a few projects fans are waiting for, such as Avowed, Everwild, Senua’s Saga: Hellblade 2, State of Decay 3, The Outer Worlds 2, as well as reboots of Fable and Perfect Dark. However, we may have to wait until major gaming conferences like E3 for further updates.
