Starting next week, games enthusiasts the world over will be given the opportunity of visiting E3, the Electronic Entertainment Expo, where the most anticipated releases of video games will take place. This is where gaming giants and industry experts show off their prized possessions and most recent developments.
In fact, most games you now love were announced during E3 Press conferences and with a good reason: it helps with the buzz!
Yet even so, there’s a downside to the E3 Expo. With so many players announcing massive upcoming titles, one would expect that the buzz for one game would have to be shared with that over additional games.
Granted, having to cram-up all videogame unveilings into a three-day-long conference is a tough act and as difficult as the unveiling itself may be, keeping the buzz rolling is much harder.
That’s why many companies have decided to go the route of pre-E3 announcements and unveilings. Providing game-savvies and enthusiasts with a logo and a small chunk of information followed by an extensive demo during the E3 conference may just be what game publishers have needed.
In total, eight companies will be holding E3 conferences and all of them will be streamed live on Twitch. Bethesda will be the first major conference of the event and will feature two major components, Fallout and Doom. Until now, the publisher has offered virtually nothing except for pre-show short trailers. Though Doom was showcased to a select few during 2014’s QuakeCon, the post-apocalyptic RPG Fallout 4 is expected to bring in the thunder for Bethesda.
On Monday, Microsoft will present Xbox’s many updates as well as the much awaited Halo 5, Rise of the Tomb Raider and Forza Motorsport 6. But despite the many offerings that Microsoft has prepared, two anticipated titles aren’t expected to make the stage: Phantom Dust and Quantum Break.
Ubisoft and EA will also present on Monday and we’re expecting that the show will be better than the disappointing experience of last year when EA only presented conceptual prototypes instead of games. Sony will be closing Monday’s conference with Cal of Duty: Black Ops 3 information as well as Destiny’s expansion pack (The Taken King) being some of the most anticipated topics.
Tuesday will showcase Nintendo’s presentation, Square-Enix and PC Gaming Showcase capping off the show.
Make sure to tune in and peak into these new titles we’ve all been expecting.
