The time has finally arrived; Summer Game Fest is here and Geoff Keighly will be delivering a special announcement today to kick off the festivities. Here’s what we know.

Summer Game Fest: What is it?

Quite simply, it’s a season of digital video game event from publishers and will feature playable content, in-game events, and plenty of special announcements and mystery reveals.

Keighley is the genius behind the Summer Game Fest. He explains:

“We are figuring this thing out as we go! One man army here editing, streaming and interviewing but love your suggestions and ideas as we build. Best part is we have 4 months to tweak and play with the format.”

When will the Summer Game Fest take place?

The best part? Summer Game Fest is a four-month-long event, so we have an exciting time ahead. It kicks off today, 13 May, and goes all the way until August 2020. According to the organisers:

“Summer Game Fest is a new, all-digital way to unite the gaming community for a season of vido game news and events from game developers and publishers.”

Don’t worry if the four-month time frame seems like overkill. There won’t be announcements every day. Rather think of it as a season of gaming fun, with some off days strewn in to recuperate.
