Microsoft unveils new indie game showcase called [email protected] Game Pass

Microsoft has announced a new games showcase called [email protected] Game Pass hours after Sony lifted the lid on its fledgling PlayStation showcase, State of Play.

Determined to prove the phrase 'if you can't beat them, join them' still rings true, Microsoft has announced a new video showcase called [email protected] Game Pass hours after Sony lifted the lid on its own fledgling PlayStation showcase, State of Play.

Unlike Microsoft's other video program, Inside Xbox, which is more news-orientated, [email protected] Game Pass will offer fans a glimpse at some of the "hottest" [email protected] coming to Game Pass, and will be packed with new reveals, gameplay highlights, and developer conversations.

As we mentioned in our State of Play write-up, the emergence of digital showcases like Nintendo Direct, State of Play, and [email protected] Game Pass marks a change in tack for the console industry's 'big three,' with Nintendo, Sony, and Microsoft all seeking to keep consumers engaged throughout the year by continuously drip-feeding news and announcements. 

The first episode of [email protected] Game Pass will include updates on some titles featured at E3 2018, such as Afterparty, Void Bastards, and Supermarket Shriek, along with new game announcements and a behind-the-scenes chat with Oxenfree and Afterparty developer Night School Studio. 

The new series will debut on March 26 at 9 am PT, and will be streamed over on the official Xbox YouTube channel.
