Saturday 10th June
EA | Conference – 8pm UK time (12PM PT time)
EA’s biggest reveal (imo) is going to be a more in depth look at the new Star Wars Battlefront 2 game alongside a brand new title from their Need for Speed Franchise. We’re more than likely to see some brand new footage from Fifa 18 on the Nintendo Switch. Thats not all though, attendees at E3 will also be able to get to play Fifa 18, Madden 18 and NBA 18 as well.
Sunday 11th June
Microsoft | Conference – 10pm UK time (2pm PT time)
Microsoft’s biggest reveal is going to be all about their new Xbox Scorpio console, including all the games we can expect to see over the next year. I had an absolute blast (no pun intended) with Crackdown 1 & 2 on the xbox 360 so heres hoping we see more of Crackdown 3 this year too.
Monday 12th June
Bethesda | Conference – 5am UK (9pm PT time)
Everyone’s hoping that Bethesda is going to drop some serious intel on their new Sci-fi , open-world RPG game Starfield…Imagine The Elder Scrolls Skyrim in Space !. The only real proof we have of this game existing is the fact Bethesda trademarked the Starfield name back in 2013 and renewing it again February this year. Not only that, but in the Bethesda #BE3 showcase poster they showed on Twitter, if you look closely in the bottom right hand corner of the image you can clearly see the words ”Coming Soon” & ”Pardon our Dust”. Like Stardust or Moon dust ? Perhaps Im looking too far into this, but lets see if Bethesda finally reveal Starfield at this years E3 or not.

PC Gaming Show | Conference – 6pm UK (10am PT time)
PC games on showcase at E3 this year will most likely be Argo, from Bohemia Interactive (the guys behind the infamous ARMA and Day Z series), Total War and much more. We may even hear some news about more Xbox play-anywhere titles for PC such as Halo: The Master Chief Collection and Halo 5. Let’s wait and see.
You can watch all the action from The PC Gaming show over on the PCGAMER Twitch channel right here.
Ubisoft | Conference – 9pm UK time (1pm PT time)
I think its safe to say that Far Cry 5 is going to be Ubisoft’s biggest kicker at this years E3. The Far Cry 5 trailer we saw a while back gave us an insight into what we can expect from the next installment in the franchise. Set in Montana America and rammed full of violence, politics and religious segments, fans of the series should be very excited indeed as we will no doubt see tonnes of gameplay footage and – fingers crossed – hopefully some multiplayer action too.

Tuesday 13th June
Sony | Conference – 2am UK time (6pm PT time)
With Microsoft revealing more of their Xbox Scorpio console (which is more powerful than the PS4 Pro at this juncture), and Nintendo switch consoles flying off the shelf quicker than they are produced, Sony really need to smash the ball out the park at this years E3 to remain one of the top players in the game. I can’t see them announcing a PS Vita 2 but I’m sure we are going to be in for an absolute treat, with the likes of God of War, more last of us 2, Ni No Kuni 2 (release date please?) and hopefully some more of Hideo Kojima’s Death Stranding, its going to be very special indeed.
Nintendo | Direct / Treehouse Live Event – 5pm UK time (9am PT time)
It’s a me, Mario ! Fasten your seatbelts Nintendo fans, as Nintendo will be dropping plenty of Mario Odyssey gameplay footage and details at this years E3, alongside Splatoon 2, AND hopefully announcing some brand new games coming to the Nintendo Switch. I’d love to see more Fire Emblem and Xenoblade stuff and hopefully (wishful thinking) a Super Smash Bros announcement.
