As we head further into the month of May there’s only one thing on our minds: the Summer of gaming news is nearly upon us! June officially marks the start of the Summer season, and what better way to celebrate the sunshine than sitting indoors and watching a long livestream for upcoming game reveals?

That’s right, the annual Summer Game Fest is officially returning this year, and now we have an actual date to mark in our calendars: June 9th at 11am PT (2pm ET / 6pm GMT) will be when Geoff Keighley will return to the stage in a night of spectacular announcements (at least we hope!). And if you feel like being a bit more bougie about the whole event, it will be streamed live in IMAX cinemas across the US, Canada, and the UK (as well as the usual.

The trailer above teases some highly anticipated upcoming titles likeStarfield, which seems a bit misleading because Bethesda is more likely to reveal more of their Sci-Fi RPG during the Xbox and Bethesda showcase a few days later on June 12th. But there's still likely to be some big game announcements anyway if last year's Summer Game Fest 2021 is anything to go by.

With E3 2022 canceled, the SGF will be the next best place for all the big studios to announce new games and provide more details on upcoming titles. 2K, Activision, Capcom, Electronic Arts, Gearbox, Bandai Namco, Square Enix, and Riot are all confirmed for this year’s show, with more to be announced.

What do you think? Are you excited for the Summer Game Fest 2022 showcase event? What are you hoping to see during the show? And of the currently confirmed showcases, which one are you most excited for now? Let us know your thoughts!

Looking for an opinion here. Im ready for a upgrade on gpu, prices have come down hard, I feel now is the time to replace the 1080ti. Im seeing the 3080ti's for about 1100 american, and RX 6800xt's for 950 american. Not to big a gulf in performance favoring the RTX. Should I jump back to team red or pay the premium for the Team green? Am I missing something performance wise that puts one out front as the one to grab?

Performance-wise, the 6800XT is more on par with the 3080. The Ti would perform better in almost any game, not by a lot though. However, I would say get the Nvidia card just for DLSS, or wait till the 4000 series is reveled/released to decide. Old cards should drop in price even more by then.

Thankx for your reply, I wound up going with the 3080ti, The EVGA RTX 3080ti XC3 specifcally. There where no AMD cards to be had anywhere near this tier.... the best in stores was the Rx 5500xt.

Summer Game Fest should pretty much replace E3 entirely.
