In just a little under an hour the intense and beautiful beast known as E3 (Electronic Entertainment Expo) will rear its magnificent head, sending us into the pleasurable world of next generation gaming. If you’re not able to be at the event yourself, or simply unable to watch it on your own, stay tuned to Geek News Network as we’ll be featuring looks at each of this week’s panels and events.
Throughout the day we’ll also be putting up trailers and looks at new games as they become available, featuring our writers own takes on what they’ve seen.
It will be a fun, long week, so make sure you’re also following me on Twitter @BearPunch if you want all of the latest commentary right as it’s happening!
Monday, June 10th: Day One
9:00 AM – 11:00 AM PDT
Expectations: Microsoft will finally bring the heat, showing us what the Xbox One is truly made of. Maybe they’ll even show us off some games; I mean anything is possible, right? Expect Fable IV and a look at Halo: Spartan Assault among the titles shown off for one platform or another.
1:00 PM – 2:00 PM PDT
Expectations: We are finally going to hear more about the Star Wars licensing deal announced a few months back. In addition we should hear first details on Dragon Age 3: Inquisition, likely Mirror’s Edge 2 (if the rumors hold true), and a whole lot of EA Sports stuff.
3:00 PM – 4:00 PM PDT
Expectations: Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag will lead the Ubisoft panel, no question there. We’ll also see a new trailer for Watch_Dogs and likely some info on Rayman Legends and Splinter Cell: Blacklist.
6:00 PM – 8:00 PM PDT
Expectations: Sony, much like Microsoft, will come out guns blazing on this one, featuring final details on the Playstation 4. Outside of the already announced games, it is known that Bungie will be showing off gameplay for Destiny during the panel.
Tuesday, June 11th: Day Two
Nintendo (Via Nintendo Direct)
7:00 AM PDT
Expectations: Nintendo will be hyping their Wii U like there’s no tomorrow, while simultaneously showing off titles featured in the Year of Luigi promotion. A whole lot of Pokémon X & Y should be assumed as well.
Future of Final Fantasy (Square-Enix)
9:00 AM PDT
Expectations: Final Fantasy XIII-3: Lightning Returns & Final Fantasy XIV will be discussed, while Final Fantasy XV makes its debut. I know the discussion is Final Fantasy focused, but I would really love to see an announcement of Kingdom Hearts III to really shock people awake that morning.
That about covers what we know of E3 for this year at this time. Stick around Geek News Network for all the news as it rushed in on us over the next week.
