It’s the best time of the year to be a gamer!

Yup, it’s E3 week! The week where we find out what’s coming in the world of video games for the upcoming year (and more in some cases)!

As usual, Microsoft’s going to be kicking off their E3 conference on Sunday June 9, at 1pm Pacific Time. For us Singaporeans (and those in our GMT), that’ll be at 4am Monday morning.

Yes, we agree. It’s an ungodly hour to stay up but unlike most other conferences, there’s a reward for doing so.

Like past years, viewers of Microsoft’s conference on Mixer (on PC and Xbox One) will be eligible for a Mixpot! These are special rewards for viewers who watch the stream.

Last year, those who watched got Outer Wilds for free plus other exclusive DLC too! Who knows what’s in store for this year!

All we know is that it’s DEFINITELY worth your while to set your alarm to 350am, login to Mixer and just enjoy the show (or go back to sleep).

If you’re not interested in watching it on Mixer, you can also watch the conference live on Youtube, Facebook Live, Twitter and Twitch.

We can’t wait to see what the company has up its sleeves. Here’s hoping for a new MechAssault (hey, we can dream) or a look at Halo Infinite!
