With just about a month to go until the highly-awaited E3 2015, Microsoft has lifted the lid on what it will be bringing to the table in this year’s convention and what fans can expect from Xbox at this year’s E3, courtesy of Major Nelson.

In a new post on Major Nelson’s blog, Microsoft has revealed its plans for E3 2015, with the key highlight being that the Microsoft E3 press conference will officially take place at 9:30am PDT (12:30pm PDT), and will take place once again at The Galen Center in Los Angeles, CA. The full press conference will be streamed live on Xbox One, Xbox 360, and Windows Phone, along with the broadcast being aired on Spike TV and Xbox.com.

Aside from the press conference, Microsoft also revealed several other events that will be taking place for the company across all of E3 2015, including the return of the “Xbox Daily: Live @ E3” show that will include multiple broadcasts over the course of the event each day at 4pm-5pm PDT. The broadcasts will take place from June 15th-17th, 2015 and feature a variety of game demos, trailer reveals, and other special announcements during E3, along with multiple appearances from guests and game developers.

The final piece in Microsoft’s news today includes the special “Xbox FanFest” that will be taking place during E3, and will provide “500 lucky fans a one-of-a-kind ticket for E3 week,” giving Xbox fans the chance to experience E3 with the following perks included with a FanFest ticket:
