Microsoft is going to have a large E3 this year. Too large…which is just too awesome. If you’re unfamiliar with what E3 is, E3 stands for Electronics Entertainment Expo. It’s held in the Los Angeles Convention Center, and it is the biggest video game show ever. Typically, we see brand new game announcements, new trailers, gameplay, hints, and more fun stuff a gamer could dream of. E3 is almost like Christmas to gamers, if not, better than Christmas. It’s a time where all of the game developers, publishers, press, and fans get together to see what’s new and exciting in the industry. This excitement is shared unanimously over the internet.
AnAnyways, let’s get back on topic. Microsoft has detailed plans for their 2018 showing. According to a Major Nelson (Director of Programming at Xbox), this year will be their largest E3. In a blog post from MajorNelson.com, he goes over details about what we should expect, and some insight toward the evolution of E3. From this article, we can determine that Xbox’s show will actually be taking place at the Microsoft Theater, just across the street from the Los Angeles Convention Center. Now, this doesn’t mean that Microsoft is abandoning their floor space at the Los Angeles Convention Center. Instead, they will instead have an area dedicated to Mixer at LACC, where participants can play, stream, interact, and catch more E3 news. On top of that, the Microsoft theater will be the future home of their E3 showcases and other events. Now, here is the biggest scoop…
Xbox’s E3 showcase will premiere on June 10th, 2018, at 1:00 PM PT.
Now truly is the greatest time to be a gamer. I’m so excited for this year’s E3! Regardless of how you feel towards Microsoft and the Xbox brand; there should be some awesome things to see at the Xbox E3 event! I’m not sure what we can expect from the Xbox show…but, overall, we should expect some quality game announcements, alongside with confirmed details about Shadows Die Twice (all we have at this point are some leaks) and possibly other upcoming FromSoftware games during the entirety of E3. Perhaps we will also see some Soulsborne-like game announcements too.
