X06: Forward Planning

Click through for a sneak peek at what Microsoft's hiding up its sleeve for tomorrow night's X06 event in - altogether now - "Barrrrcelonna"

X06 is the new E3! For Microsoft anyway, and tomorrow night will see some big announcements and a few surprises for Xbox 360 and PC gamers. Taking place in the lovely city of Barcelona, Spain from 6pm on Wednesday, it's the place to be.

Xbox 360 games we know will be there in some form or another (MORE than just another trailer though) include first-party giants Fable 2, Gears Of War, Forza Motorsport 2 and junior giant Viva Piņata.

Ubisoft looks set to blow the cobwebs off the stealth genre with some seriously fresh Assassin's Creed gameplay footage and info. Neverwinter Nights 2 (PC) and a grand unveiling of Alone in the Dark on 360 will be Atari's contribution. Alan Wake, The Darkness, Age of Conan - Hyborian Adventures, BioShock (PC / 360) and Shadowrun, Microsoft's PC and 360 online crossover game head up the Vista showcase.

MS bosses Peter Moore and Shane Kim will also be in attendance, no doubt to talk about sale figures, XBL stats and Halo 3 (please GOD). The press conference is scheduled to begin tomorrow night (September 27) at around 7pm 'Spain o'clock'. By our reckoning that's about 6pm UK time.

We'll be there dressed as matadors waving a CVG-branded red flag in front of the world's press to bring you all the news, shots and trailers as they appear. Check back tomorrow night from 6pm!
