We are just a few days away from the beginning of the biggest annual event of the video game industry – Electronic Entertainment Expo or simply E3.
E3 2019 will begin Tuesday, June 11 and end Thursday, June 13 and will be held at the Los Angeles Convention Centre in… Los Angeles.
But the fun begins much earlier, with the press conferences of all the big developers and publishers that will be making their big announcements in the days prior to June 11.
And so, I wiped up a useful schedule for these conferences and added some personal predictions and recently available information regarding some things we can expect to see there:
Will probably show some APEX news, the usual FIFA stuff, but they open up with some juicy Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order gameplay!
Of course, what they already said about the 14 first-party games they will be showcasing. Also, what might be surprising is if they decide to use the absence of SONY at this E3 and announce their next console, codenamed “Project Scarlett”.
Probably “Doom Eternal” and already released live service titles like “Elder Scrolls Online” and $&@+#$! 76.
Regarding the PC Gaming Show, you can never be sure what they will have to present, but what we do know is that EPIC is sponsoring it this year and are going to have a presentation… this is going to be awkward after what they have been pulling off for the past months with their predatory tactics to increase market share.
Not a lot of hope for Beyond good and evil, news regarding this game are restricted to the streams that the developers host. Maybe something about Assassin’s Creed Viking, more on Ghost recon breakpoint and the newly teased “Watchdogs Legion”!
Last year’s stream was not the most exciting, but hopefully this year they can provide something great for those waiting for info on the Final Fantasy 7 remake and Marvel’s The Avengers game.
No special predictions or rumors here, it is going to be some more info about Pokemon Sword and Shield, Link’s Awakening Remake and Mario Maker 2.
Altogether it seems to be a pretty average E3, with the absence of SONY this year it can turn out to be lacking as well. But, as I always hope, E3 is a time for miracles and every company has a window of opportunity to “wow” us with something unexpected and exciting.
