E3 2017 formally kicks off this weekend press conferences to flaunt hardware and the games they’ve lined up for the next year although the show floor doesn’t open until next week. The series is starting even as by holding its EA Play event on 32, Electronic Arts has decided to get a jump on everyone else.
As we have done for the last several decades, we’re going to give you with a breakdown of all the press conferences along with a program. That is.
EA — Saturday, June 10th — 12:00 PM PT
On the frustration of everybody who needed to book a flight and a hotel for E3 2017, EA chose to hold its press conference on Saturday this year. Coming off of a generally successful year in which Battlefield 1, Titanfall two , Madden NFL 17 and FIFA 17 all received positive reviews, EA is seeking to make an even bigger splash in 2017 with more Star Wars and the return of the Need for Speed franchise.
Microsoft — Sunday, June 11th — 2:00 PM PT
Microsoft typically takes because of its presser while Sony takes Monday night, but Microsoft is following EA’s lead and getting a head start. After watching Sony dominate the first half of this year with exclusives like Horizon Zero Dawn, Gravity Rush 2, Nioh, Nier: Automata and Persona 5, the Xbox team knew it had to make a big splash in the second half. That is just what it plans on doing this Sunday, with the unveiling of Project Scorpio and a selection of new games.
3 games we can not wait to see: Crackdown 3, State of Decay 2, Sea of Thieves
Bethesda — Sunday, June 11th — 9:00 PM PT
Bethesda started holding back its E3 press conferences in 2015, and in spite of the fact that Nintendo still does not feel comfortable going up on stage for an hour or so, Bethesda will have its third presser. The writer has spent the previous two conventions announcing games that are weeks or months away from launching, although we don’t know what to expect. In most likelihood, Bethesda will have yet another huge game or two ready to reveal at the series this weekend.
3 games we hope to watch: Wolfenstein: The New Colossus, The Evil Within 2, Something Elder Scrolls
Ubisoft — Monday, June 12th — 1:00 PM PT
Ubisoft’s press conference may be the conference at E3 this past year. We are likely to see a fresh Assassin’s Creed (after the series took a much-needed year off), a new numbered Far Cry (not a bizarre retread like Primal), a fresh South Park RPG (that finally has a release date) and a Mario/Rabbids crossover to the Switch which resembles one of the weirdest things ever conceived.
3 games we can not wait to watch: Assassin’s Creed Origins, Far Cry 5, Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle
Sony — Monday, June 12th — 6:00 PM PT
Other than a color choice and price drop for your PS4 isn’t expected to flaunt any new hardware in E3 2017. What it is expected to show off is lots of new games. Sony has been trouncing Microsoft and Nintendo in recent years with enormous sport reveals like the Final Fantasy VII movie, the yield of Crash Bandicoot along with the resurrection of The Last Guardian. Now Sony has to compete with all the Change and Project Scorpio, which could make things interesting.
3 matches we can’t wait to watch: Spider-Man, God of War, Days Gone
Nintendo — Tuesday, June 13th — 9:00 AM PT
Nintendo is in addition to the world. The Change is a smash hit, everyone loves the newest Zelda along with the NES Classic Edition moved from being a fun limited edition merchandise to one of the most wanted consoles around the planet. The question today is whether Nintendo can keep up this momentum for any duration of time. Once again, a press conference that is traditional will not be held by Nintendo instead going for a 30-minute pre-recorded Nintendo Spotlight video. We know that Switch matches Nintendo is planning to start in 2017, but here is hoping that the organization has some surprises in store for its flow.
