Meta stated in a blog post that this year's event will feature more than 40 minutes of content, including a new pre-show of game updates and debut trailers, beginning at 9:45 a.m. PT/12:45 p.m. ET.

The audience can also expect a post-show developer roundtable, new game announcements, gameplay first looks and updates to existing games during the main event.

Despite the absence of any specific game mentions in the announcement, the teaser video showcased a short clip of a mystery game that appears to be set in a desert with Loki's helmet on the ground, leading fans to speculate it could possibly be teasing Asgard's Wrath 2, the sequel of 2019's Asgard's Wrath, an action role-playing game developed by Sanzaru Games and published by Oculus Studios.
