Our final IGN Expo of the Summer of Gaming is complete, and we went out with a bang, with new gameplay, new release dates, beta announcements and even some Xbox Series X news. If you missed any of the show, make sure to check out the list below for everything we showed off.
IGN Expo might be done, but there’s so much more coming from IGN’s Summer of Gaming throughout June – here’s the Summer of Gaming full schedule. All month, we’re supporting some incredibly important causes – the World Health Organisation and The Bail Project – if you are able, help us support them too at donate.ign.com.
