Starting tomorrow, June 12th EA will kick off E3 2016 with the EA Play event. Scheduled to take place at 1pm PDT / 4pm EDT / 9pm BST, the event will feature Live Streams, Playable games for those in attendance at the show, and Special Guest appearances.
Following EA’s conference Bethesda, publisher of hit games such as DOOM, Wolfenstein, and Skyrim, will host their E3 Press Conference Sunday, June 12 at 7pm PDT / 11pm EDT / (Monday, June 13) 3am BST. It is heavily rumored that Bethesda may reveal a sequel to the recent reboot of Wolfenstein and also the much anticipated sequel to Prey, which originally launched on Xbox 360.
On Monday, June 13th at 9:30am PDT / 12:30pm EDT / 5:30pm BST Microsoft will host their E3 2016 Press Conference featuring news on upcoming games and features for both Xbox One and Windows 10. With last year containing the “greatest games lineup in Xbox history” according to Microsoft, it will be interesting to see what surprises Phil Spencer and company have in store for us at this year’s event. An upcoming Halo Wars 2 beta has already been leaked ahead of the show and is rumored to be playable starting June 13th.
After Microsoft’s conference on Monday, many PC Gamers and PC enthusiasts can look forward to the PC Gaming Show at 11:30am PDT / 2:30pm EDT / 7:30pm BST. If the event is anything like it was at last year’s E3 we should hear more about the exclusive new titles coming to PC in 2016 and beyond as well as the tech that will help PC gamers get the most out of their machines.
Ubisoft’s Press Conference will follow the PC Gaming Show at 1pm PDT / 4pm EDT / 9pm BST. It is expected that we will see more of Watchdogs 2, which was officially revealed for the first time earlier this week. You can view the official announcement trailer for the newly announced sequel below.
Sony will be hosting the last of Monday’s E3 press conferences. It is expected that we will see more of Guerrilla’s new IP, Horizon: Zero Dawn, which saw a new story trailer released earlier this week. It is also heavily rumored that Naughty Dog may be set to reveal their next game at Sony’s show and I certainly hope it will be a sequel to The Last of Us.
Nintendo will host the final E3 press conference at 9am PDT / 12pm EDT / 5pm BST on Tuesday, June 14th. While Nintendo has already confirmed that the NX will not make its debut at this year’s E3 they have ensured fans that Zelda Wii U will make an appearance and will also be playable on the show floor. It is also expected that we will see more footage of the newest entries in the Pokemon series, Pokemon Sun and Pokemon Moon.
While they will not be hosting their own press conference at E3, WB Games earlier this week revealed the first trailer for Injustice 2, the follow up to the successful DC comics brawler, Injustice: Gods Among Us. Judging from the trailer below, it appears that power armor will have a major effect on gameplay as all characters seem to have their own variations of armor which could help players change fighting styles and strategies on the fly during combat.
Volition, the makers of the Saint’s Row franchise, also announced their new IP earlier this week called Agents of Mayhem. Going by the trailer alone, the game looks to mix elements of Saint’s Row’s humor with a story similar to Crackdown and art style reminiscent of Overwatch. If the gameplay turns out to be as fun and hilarious as the trailer below is then this is definitely one that all gamers should keep on their radar heading into E3.
What do you think of these leaks and Pre-E3 announcements? Do you feel that we may still be in for a few surprises at this year’s E3. Let us know in the comments below.
