Microsoft’s going all Nindie Direct.
Microsoft has announced [email protected] Game Pass; a new series of livestreams to showcase indie games coming to Xbox Game Pass. The first broadcast will be on Tuesday, March 26.
Announced on the Xbox Wire blog, the first episode will premiere at 9:00am PT (12:00 ET, 04:00pm UK, 02:00am AEST), and offer new dives into After Party, Void Bastards, and Supermarket Shriek.
There will also be a behind-the-scenes element to the stream, with a segment featuring Afterparty and Oxenfree developer Night School Studio.
The blog posts promises new reveals, gameplay highlights, and conversations with developers.
The announcement comes just hours after Sony revealed their own new live broadcast series, State of Play, meaning all of the big three platform holders now have their own livestream programming. [email protected] appears to be closer to Nintendo’s Nindie Direct, while State of Play is more in the vein of a traditional Nintendo Direct.
