Geoff Keighley’s Summer Game Fest Kickoff Live really kicks off the summer season of gaming events in earnest. Airing today at 11am Pacific/2pm Eastern, the Kickoff Live stream will last between 90 minutes and two hours, and will be filled with more than 30 reveals, a musical performance by Weezer, and special guests like Jeff Goldblum and Giancarlo Esposito. You can catch the stream live in the embedded YouTube video below:

Scheduled Start Time: 11am Pacific/2pm Eastern/6pm GMT
Estimated Duration: Between 90-120 minutes.
Keighley also promises that Summer Game Fest Kickoff Live will start at its scheduled time, without another countdown timer to the actual event. This is tossing a bit of shade at both the Far Cry 6 and Battlefield 2042 reveals, which were scheduled to start at certain times, but then each had 30 and 60 minute countdown timers respectively before the actual events began. Keighley wants viewers to know what to expect and be able to schedule their time accordingly.
