We’re still a couple of days away from the official start of E3, but there’s another show in town. After many years of hosting at E3, Geoff Keighley is now holding his own competing event, Summer Game Fest. It was born last year when the pandemic derailed E3, and Keighley decided to bring it back alongside E3 this year. There are numerous events planned over the summer, but it all kicks off today. The Sumer Game Fest Kickoff Live event begins at 11:00 am Pacific / 2:00 PM Eastern. You can watch it all live by clicking the embedded video below!

About the show

Summer Game Fest Live Kickoff will feature over 30 games, including new game reveals and long-awaited updates on previously revealed games. Special guests include Jeff Goldblum, Giancarlo Esposito, Weezer, Japanese Breakfast, the Sonic Symphony, and presumably some game developers as well. After all of these game reveals and musical performances, the show will transition to Day of the Devs. This is an indie-focused presentation hosted by the combination of Double Fine Productions and iam8bit. Developer Tom Happ has confirmed that Axiom Verge 2 will be present at Day of the Devs, so that’s a must-see for Metroidvania fans.
