E3 2018: Electronic Entertainment Expo – All You Need to Know

E3 2018 is effectively here. The Electronic Entertainment Expo is the biggest event of the year in terms of game announcements.

E3 2018: Electronic Entertainment Expo - All You Need to Know

Computer game organizations have progressively started to share news in the weeks in front of E3 itself, and that is unquestionably turned out to be the situation this year- – Battlefield V, Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, Rage 2, and Fallout 76 have just been reported. In any case, there’s bounty more to anticipate, both as far as further specifics about those diversions – like exactly what is Fallout 76?- – despite everything others to be uncovered. Everything begins with the EA Play public interview on Saturday, June 9.

Be that as it may, as far as E3 itself, we have a total summary on all that you have to know. From the diversions and organizations we know will be there to the question and answer session timetable and subtle elements on the occasion, you’ll discover the majority of the key data about E3 2018. Make certain to stay tuned to GameSpot ahead of the pack up and through the occasion for full scope.

What Does E3 Stand For?

June is upon us, which can only mean one thing: It’s time for E3. We’ll soon be inundated with countless game announcements, trailers, and demos, including what’s sure to be some nice surprises–assuming they don’t all get leaked first. But what does E3 itself stand for?

E3 is a ubiquitous term for the industry’s biggest gaming event, but it’s merely a shorthand for its full name: the Electronic Entertainment Expo. E3 has been around for more than two decades now, dating back to 1995. It’s evolved significantly over the years, and in the mid-2000s actually changed its name and format pretty dramatically. The E3 Media and Business Summit was held in 2007 and 2008 as a more stripped-down show that limited the number of attendees.

More recently, E3 has expanded to even open its doors partially to the public. It’s still primarily an industry- and media-focused event, but game publishers are increasingly interested in using the money and effort it pumps into its E3 showings to go directly to fans. Recent years have also seen the event unofficially extended; while E3 itself lasts only three days, it’s closer to a week-long affair thanks to the press conferences that come before it and EA Play, which takes place on the Saturday before E3.

You can check out the video above for a more in-depth look at the history of E3. If you’re more interested in what’s going on this year, we’ve rounded up all of the key information about E3 2018. That includes a press conference schedule, rumors, and games confirmed at the show. There’s still sure to be a lot we don’t know about, so stay tuned to GameSpot for complete coverage.

When And Where?

E3 formally starts on Tuesday, June 12, and goes through Thursday, June 14. That is the point at which the show floor is really open at the Los Angeles Convention Center, as amusement organizations set up corners and demo their recreations to squeeze, individuals from the business, and- – in a substantially more ongoing move- – a select number of open participants.

While E3 itself endures just three days, things informally start much sooner. Electronic Arts has diverge from E3 and now has its own occasion, EA Play, the end of the week earlier. That starts on Saturday, June 9, while different organizations – including Microsoft, Sony, Nintendo, Bethesda, and Ubisoft- – will have their own question and answer session in the prior days E3 starts.

The Press Conferences

EA Play kicks things off, filling in as both a scaled down E3 committed to Electronic Arts’ diversions and playing host to the distributer’s yearly question and answer session. That occurs on June 9. On June 10, we’ll get public interviews from Microsoft, Bethesda, and Devolver Digital. June 11 will see Square Enix (new to facilitating its own particular question and answer session), Ubisoft, and Sony go ahead, notwithstanding the PC Gaming Show, which is a somewhat extraordinary kind of mammoth. Nintendo rounds things out with its online communicate on June 12, that day E3 starts.

Watching the Press Conferences

Why, appropriate here on GameSpot, obviously! We’ll be spilling the question and answer sessions live, trailed by responses from our staff. Moreover, we’ll have a livestream loaded with engineer meetings and diversion demos consistently. Then, Nintendo will take after its Direct-style question and answer session with its run of the mill Treehouse stream that exhibits diversions going to its stages. The PC Gaming Show will stream on stages like Twitch.

The Companies Attending The Show

A huge number of developers and publishers, both big and small, will be in attendance at E3. Of course, just being there doesn’t mean they have something to announce or show, although Witcher fans are nonetheless hoping CD Projekt Red is there to showcase Cyberpunk 2077, not just take meetings.

The festivities begin with the EA Play event on Saturday, June 9, and continue until E3 closes on June 14. In the meantime, you can see a list of all the companies attending this year’s E3 below. You can also find the press conference schedule, along with our full coverage of the expo, on our E3 2018 hub.

The Big E3 Rumors

Speaking of which, rumors and leaks have already spoiled some pre-E3 announcements, including Rage 2 and Lego DC Super-Villains. There are plenty of other rumors circling ahead of E3 for games that–assuming they’re real–we won’t hear about until the companies’ respective press conferences, including Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, Just Cause 4, and Forza Horizon 4. There’s also word that Fallout 76, which appears to be a pretty standard Bethesda RPG, will have online survival elements.

E3 2018 Rumors

Crackdown 3 Delayed

The oft-delayed open-world action game Crackdown 3 had been slated for release sometime in 2018, but it’s reportedly been pushed back yet again. As such, it’s unclear how prominently it will be featured–if at all–during Microsoft’s E3 press conference.

Update: Crackdown 3 has officially been delayed until 2019.

Hitman 2 Leaked

Publisher WB Games has teased an announcement of some sort is coming on June 7, ahead of E3. It doesn’t provide any indication of what that will be for, but a teaser video shows a race car with the brand Hamsun on it–a reference to something from the first season of IO Interactive’s Hitman. (IO and WB worked on a re-release of that game not long ago.) If that’s not direct enough for you, a Reddit user discovered the source code for WB’s website briefly hosted a link to an image file with a logo for something called Hitman 2. That seems pretty clear cut, but we should learn more on Thursday.

Update: Hitman 2 is indeed real and releases later this year.

  • Hitman 2 Leaked Ahead Of E3 2018, It Seems

Fortnite Coming To Nintendo Switch

A Korean ratings board listing has revealed what could be an E3 surprise: A Nintendo Switch port of Fortnite. The listing doesn’t specify which of the game’s modes–Save the World or the phenomenally popular Battle Royale–will be included, but it’s hard to imagine the latter would not make the cut.

  • Fortnite Coming To Nintendo Switch, According To Ratings Board

Overcooked 2, Paladins, And More

While 4chan leaks are not especially reliable, a photo has surfaced that may in fact be real. It shows names for a variety of Nintendo Switch games that will apparently be advertised around the E3 show floor. This includes already-confirmed games like Mario Tennis Aces, but it also shows Fortnite (which, as noted above, looks to be real), Paladins, and Overcooked 2. Whereas Fortnite and Paladins would be ports of existing games, Overcooked 2 has not yet been announced–and it’s possible that it could also come to PC, PS4, and Xbox One in addition to Switch, if it is indeed real.

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey

A new Assassin’s Creed was among the games seemingly leaked by Walmart Canada. Although that retailer listing was very non-specific–it didn’t include a subtitle or number–we’ve now heard what could be the title for such a game. According to JeuxVideo, which reportedly received a photo of a collectible keychain, the new game is called Assassin’s Creed Odyssey. The keychain itself consists of a helmet resembling one from Ancient Greece, perhaps indicating that will be the setting for the new game.

Update: Ubisoft apparently didn’t feel like having the rumors swirl until E3, so it’s decided to confirm that Assassin’s Creed Odyssey is real. It offered up a very brief, 300-ish clip and stated Odyssey is indeed the name, but beyond that, we’ll have to wait for E3 for more details.

Borderlands Getting PS4, Xbox One, PC Re-Release

We know a new Borderlands is eventually coming, whether it’s called Borderlands 3 or something else. Gearbox denies it’ll be at E3, and publisher 2K recently delayed an unannounced game, which could be that Borderlands title. But it looks as if E3 might not be completely devoid of Borderlands news, as the Korean ratings board has listed Borderlands: Game of the Year Edition for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. While not official by any means, ratings board leaks are often a reliable source. Given the timing, we might just hear about this project at E3.

Gears Of War 5, New Assassin’s Creed, Just Cause 4, And More

Many of the expectations for E3 2018 were set in one go. Retailers have been known to leak things from time to time, but Walmart’s Canadian website seemed to potentially spoil quite a lot with a single leak. Listings for numerous unannounced games went online in May, including Rage 2, a new Assassin’s Creed, Gears of War 5, Dragon Quest 2, and Just Cause 4.

The sheer number, combined with some typos–such as Forza “Horizons” 5, rather than what would be the series’ next game, Forza Horizon 4–made it all seem unlikely. However, Bethesda had an unusual response to the whole situation, and soon after we learned that Rage 2 is real (and since then, Lego DC Super-Villains). Two games from this list turning out to be legitimate doesn’t mean the others are anything but placeholders or errors, but it does lend some credence to the possibility of them being real.

E3 2018: Electronic Entertainment Expo - All You Need to Know

A New Splinter Cell Will Be Revealed

Another game mentioned in the Walmart Canada leak was something simply titled Splinter Cell. This might also turn out to be nothing but a placeholder, but Ubisoft itself has certainly set fans up to expect some kind of news related to the franchise before long. Following Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot’s comments last year, the company released a Splinter Cell-themed update for Ghost Recon Wildlands earlier this year. That not only set up the potential plot for a new Splinter Cell, but it marked the return of beloved Sam Fisher voice Michael Ironside–and it doesn’t seem like a stretch to think Ubisoft brought him in for more than just a small cameo.

  • Splinter Cell: What We Know And Want At E3 2018

Fallout News Is Coming

This is less a rumor and more speculation, as fans believe we’re nearing an announcement involving the Fallout franchise. Bethesda offered days of teases for Rage 2 before it was revealed, and, as of this writing, it’s seemingly begun to do the same for Fallout. The company first tweeted a “please stand by” image similar to a screen we’ve seen in the series previously. Subsequently, it kicked off a livestream with the same image playing on a screen in the background, but with a Fallout Vault Boy figure in the foreground.

That’s sparked speculation that we could see a new Fallout game or–perhaps more likely, given its Skyrim re-releases–a remastered version of Fallout 3 or 4, perhaps for PS4, Xbox One, PC, and Switch. Bethesda has said this year’s press conference could be its biggest ever; clearly it’s got more than just Rage 2 and updates to The Elder Scrolls Online to talk about.

Update: Indeed, Fallout news has arrived. Bethesda Softworks has officially unveiled Fallout 76, a new game developed by Skyrim and Fallout dev Bethesda Game Studios. We don’t know a ton at this point about how it will play, but Kotaku reports it will be have online-based survival elements. Bethesda said we’ll be hearing more at E3; if that is the form the game takes, Bethesda is sure to provide some indication at E3.

Star Fox Is Getting A Racing Game Called Grand Prix

The Star Fox franchise hasn’t seen much activity in recent years save for the Wii U game Star Fox Zero, but that may change in the near future. According to leaks published around the internet and a report from Eurogamer, Retro Studios–of Metroid Prime and Donkey Kong Country Returns fame–is at work on a racing game called Star Fox: Grand Prix. Reddit user DasVergeben claims it will feature elements of F-Zero and Diddy Kong Racing, with an adventure mode and hub world.

Cyberpunk 2077 (Or Another CD Projekt Red Game) Will Be There

We know CD Projekt Red, the developer of the Witcher series and the upcoming Cyberpunk 2077, is attending E3. A listing on the official E3 website earlier this year suggested the studio would be there to show off an RPG, although that was later removed. The company has not yet announced its plans for the event–if it has anything to publicly show at all–but fans have their fingers crossed that Cyberpunk (or the studio’s other triple-A RPG) will finally be revealed properly.

N64 Classic Edition Will Be Announced

While not E3-specific, there have been rumors about an N64 Classic Edition since the release of the NES Classic. With both that system and the subsequent SNES Classic proving to be huge successes, it would be no surprise to see Nintendo continue the trend by bringing a mini version of the Nintendo 64 to the market. Trademark filings have also suggested it’s something Nintendo is at least considering, and Nintendo would be the ideal place to reveal its existence.

What Do We Want To See?

Like you, we’ve got a long wishlist of things we’re hoping to see at E3 2018. That includes specific details and features in games that we both know will be there (Rage 2, Death Stranding, Spider-Man) and those we do not (a new Splinter Cell, Borderlands 3, Just Cause 4). We’ve compiled what we know about these projects and what we’re hoping to see at the event.

Is E3 Open To The Public?

Unlike most of E3’s history, yes, E3 is now open to the public, but you can’t just show up and get in. Tickets for the Gamer Pass are up for sale for $249, though you should be prepared for long lines to get into see most things on the show floor. Hours for when you can get in are different than in 2017, as Industry Pass holders (including exhibitors and members of the media) will get in before everyone else on Tuesday and Wednesday.

Nintendo at that point finishes up the question and answer sessions with its preparation on Tuesday morning.

9:30 PM ET
2:30 AM BST (June 11)

There’s still a lot to learn about Fallout 76. We know the game is set before the original Fallout, and that players will take on the role of a Vault Dweller in the underground bunker known as Vault 76. Bethesda was quick to state that we’d be seeing much more of the game on June 10. In recent years, the publisher has revealed a lot of games, including Fallout 4, Prey, and Wolfenstein II, during its E3 press conferences, so Fallout fans likely won’t be disappointed. Here’s everything we know and want to see from Fallout 76 this E3.

Rage 2 is Bethesda’s other big game in the spotlight. Like the original Rage, it’s an open-world shooter set in a post-apocalyptic environment with a very Mad Max vibe. We don’t have much confirmed info about the game yet, other than that it’ll release on PS4, Xbox One, and PC in 2019. The game is being developed by id Software, known for the first Rage game and the stellar 2016 remake of Doom, and Avalanche Studios, known for dense open-world games like Just Cause. Here’s everything we know and want to see from Rage 2 at E3 2018.

    • E3 2018 is just around the corner, and as always the big event will kick off with a bevy of press conferences and presentations. This year Square Enix has decided to hold its very own showcase to highlight its upcoming suite of games.Come back on Monday, June 11 to watch the entire Square Enix presentation right here at GameSpot. It kicks off at 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET. We’ll be streaming the entire event. If you can’t watch for yourself, follow along with our liveblog instead to stay up-to-date on all the big announcements.

  • PC Gaming Show — 3 PM PT / 6 PM ET / 11 PM BST (8 AM AET on June 12)

  • Sony — 6 PM PT / 9 PM ET (2 AM BST / 11 AM on June 12)

    • E3 2018 is just a few days away. The show proper begins on Tuesday, June 12 in Los Angeles, but as has become the norm, many games publishers–including Sony, Microsoft, Nintendo, and others–are holding their own press conferences in the days leading up to the show itself.Sony’s E3 press conference is scheduled to begin on Monday, June 11 at 6 PM PT / 9 PM ET (2 AM BST / 11 AM on June 12). We know we’ll be seeing more of upcoming PS4 games like Death Stranding, The Last of Us: Part II, Ghost of Tsushima, and Spider-Man, and there may be more announcements included too. However, Sony has already stated it won’t be showing any new hardware at E3, so you can forget about PS5 for now.

      For Death Stranding, Sony Interactive Entertainment Worldwide Studios chairman Shawn Layden said the company has a “complete new report for everybody about what is happening around that title,” while Ghost of Tsushima will also have a “deep dive.” For Spider-Man there will be “a new drop,” which is likely to be a new trailer. Finally, The Last of Us Part 2 will have “a full new scope and treatment to show progress on the game and give people a better understanding of where we’re going with Part 2.”

      GameSpot will be streaming Sony’s conference live on June 11 on Twitter, YouTube, Twitch, and Facebook, while we’ll also be at hand to provide in-depth coverage of the conference both before and after Sony’s presentation. You can take a look at the full E3 2018 press conference schedule for more information on everything happening during that week.

  • Nintendo — 9 AM PT / 12 PM ET / 5 PM BST (2 AM AET on June 13)

    E3 2018 is nearly upon us. The show formally kicks off on Tuesday, June 12, but as in recent years, many big-name publishers will host their own press conferences in the days leading up to the event. Nintendo’s will once again take the form of a pre-recorded Direct-style video presentation, which is scheduled to air at 9 AM PT / 12 PM PT / 5 PM BST, just before E3 proper begins.

    As usual, the company has been fairly secretive about its plans heading into this year’s E3. Outside of confirming that Super Smash Bros. for Switch will play a prominent role both in its presentation and on the show floor, Nintendo hasn’t announced any of the titles it plans on showcasing at the expo. However, we do know that the aforementioned video presentation won’t be the extent of its plans for E3 2018.

    Once again,

    Nintendo will follow its E3 briefing with a series of Treehouse Live streams, which will air each of the three days the expo runs. Additionally, Nintendo will host competitive esports tournaments for Super Smash Bros. Switch and Splatoon 2, the latter of which is set to receive a big, paid DLC expansion this summer. The Splatoon 2 World Championship begins on Monday, June 11, with the finals taking place on June 12. The Super Smash Bros. Invitational 2018 tournament will kick off shortly afterward and features well-known competitive Smash players from around the world.

    Aside from that, however, we have little idea of what to expect from Nintendo at E3. The company has said that its presentation will focus primarily on games launching soon, so we’ll get a much clearer idea of what its release schedule for Switch will be through the end of the year. It seems likely that we’ll learn more about some of the titles that were announced at last year’s E3, such as Metroid Prime 4 and Yoshi. We may also see more of the recently revealed Pokemon RPGs for Switch: Let’s Go, Pikachu and Let’s Go, Eeevee.

    Whatever the case, we won’t have to wait much longer to find out. Nintendo will broadcast its E3 2018 presentation on its YouTube and Twitch channels. GameSpot will also host a stream of the briefing, so you can tune in right here on June 12 to follow along with all of Nintendo’s big announcements.
