How to watch Summer Game Fest 2024 — and what to expect

Summer Game Fest 2024’s kickoff event streams globally this Friday, promising new game reveals, announcements, and world premiere trailers. Host Geoff Keighley says viewers can expect a two-hour live showcase “featuring updates from the world’s top game development studios.”

Confirmed to appear at SGF 2024 are Capcom’s Monster Hunter Wilds, Atlus’ Metaphor: ReFantazio, and the first game from Blumhouse Games, the new label from the production company behind the Paranormal Activity, Insidious, and M3GAN movies. Alan Wake 2 developer Remedy Entertainment will also be present, likely with something new for its Alan Wake sequel. Viewers can also expect upcoming games Slitterhead, Dune: Awakening, Dragon Ball: Sparking! Zero, Kingdom Come: Deliverance 2, and Neva to show up in some form.

Given Keighley’s history of game reveals, it’s also reasonable to expect an appearance from old pal Hideo Kojima, whose Kojima Productions is currently working on Death Stranding 2: On the Beach and OD.

But Keighley has tried to temper expectations about what else we can expect from Summer Game Fest, calling it a “lighter year” in a Q&A streamed on Twitch. Whether that’s enough to keep wild speculation in check remains to be seen, but here’s how to watch Summer Game Fest 2024 regardless of what you’re anticipating.
