It’s that time again. The annual Electronic Entertainment Expo or E3 is the premier gaming expo to see what the next year or more in games has to offer. Starting on May 11, 1995 it’s the largest gaming news expo of the year in North America. In years past it has lost some of its momentum but it seems like in recent months I’ve been hearing more hype around the show with developers holding press conferences before the expo I.E
EA – June 9 at 11am PT As you would expect from EA you will get announcements for your normal sports fair such as Madden 19, FIFA 19, NHL 19 and NBA Live 19. A new Battlefield is coming to the forefront. The next iteration will take place during World War II and includes new features such as fortifications, and a return of co-op modes. Also another title is Anthem EA is describing it as "a shared-world action RPG where Freelancers challenge the wilds past the wall, exploring a vast world filled with savage beasts and ruthless marauders, but also teeming with amazing technology and forgotten treasures".

Bethesda – June 10 at 6.30 pm PT besides more Fallout 76 footage who knows what we will see. Maybe a new Elder scrolls title?

Square Enix – June 11 at 10am PT. The Keyblade is back in the wildly anticipated 3rdinstallation of the epic crossover that is Kingdom hearts 3. Its Final fantasy meets Disney. Speaking of Final Fantasy maybe we will get the FF7 we have all been waiting for.
