April 16 Inside Xbox To Drop E3 2019, OG Xbox, Game Pass, Gears 5 Details


The next episode of Inside Xbox is coming on April 16, as revealed by Microsoft.

The newest appointment in the series will feature first details on E3 2019, backwards compatibility, Gears 5, Rage 2, Sea of Thieves, and more.

“Our hour-long April episode will explore some exciting Xbox Game Pass news, new details on the much anticipated Anniversary Update for Sea of Thieves,” said Microsoft.

There will also be “special guest Rod Fergusson from The Coalition, first details, and footage of the Warhammer Chaosbane beta, an exclusive look at Rage 2, a handful of exciting Back Compat announcements.”

With Xbox Game Pass news, since the April lineup has already been revealed, we expect to drop something on the Ultimate subscription plan.

Original Xbox backwards compatibility has rumored to be involved for a while, and this time it looks the right moment for it to show up.

On top of that, Microsoft also promises “several surprises we’re saving for the show itself,” so there’s room for something else.

The event is kicking off Tuesday, April 16, at 2 p.m. PT / 5 p.m. ET and watch live on Mixer, Twitch, YouTube, Facebook, and Twitter.
