Summer Game Fest 2022: How to watch it and what to expect

Summer Game Fest 2022 kicks off on Thursday 9 June with an opening livestream and will follow up with games news, launches, trailers and much more over the following weeks.

It's perhaps even more important this year considering there's no E3 - not even a digital event.

So, how can you watch the kickoff show and follow everything else as it happens? Read on.

What is Summer Game Fest and when does it start?

Born from the pandemic and global lockdowns, Summer Game Fest started in 2020 to fill the void left by a cancelled E3.

It ran from May to August and featured publisher announcements, in-game events and an opening livestream that crammed in bundles of game info and trailers.

This year it runs for a shorter period but again replaces a cancelled E3 event.

Summer Game Fest  will start with a live kickoff show on Thursday 9 June at 11am PT / 2pm ET / 7pm BST.

Other publisher events will take place over the following weeks and tie into the gaming festival.
