Local Schedule For E3 2017 Press Conferences
For those planning to watch the big reveals LIVE, here are the schedules and where to watch them. Local times are also included.
Electronic Arts (Local Time)
When: June 10, 12:00 PM PDT / 3:00 EDT
Where to Watch: EA
EA will be showing Need for Speed: Payback, Battlefront 2, more of Battlefield 1's post content, Titanfall 2 post content, Sims on mobile, Sims 4, NBA Live 18, FIFA 18, Madden NFL 18. No word if Bioware will show anything and there are rumors of a new IP planned for a reveal during E3. We just might see a new Star Wars game as well since they've been teasing much of it since last year.
Microsoft (Local Time)
Microsoft will definitely do a full reveal of Project Scorpio, a more beefed up version of the Xbox One that will compete against the PlayStation 4 Pro. We will likely see more of Crackdown 3, State of Decay 2, something Halo related, Sea of Thieves, and more Battlefield 1 support. They will show indie support yet again and hopefully see a release date for games like Cuphead.
The Project Scorpio reveal will be the focus for sure, so hopefully, we will have new exclusives for the Xbox One and Windows 10 to support the upgraded console.
Bethesda Softworks (Local Time)
Bethesda's lineup is well known - Doom, Quake, Fallout, Elder Scrolls, Prey, Dishonored will likely make an appearance in some form. With the Prey reboot already out, we might see Bethesda talking about post content for that game. A new Wolfenstein has been teased since the last E3 so the big reveal could be a new entry in that franchise.
We also might see Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim on the Nintendo Switch on Bethesda's floor. There are also chances of them showing off VR versions for Fallout and Skyrim since they teased that as well last year.
Devolver Digital (Local Time)
When: June 11 at 10:00 p.m. PDT / June 12 at 1:00 a.m. EDT
Where to Watch: Twitch
This is probably the biggest question mark in the line of press conferences for this year's E3. Devolver Digital has released games like Hotline Miami and Broforce. But lately, they have been publishing a good amount of games so it's interesting on what they will be showing during their presentation.
PC Gaming Show (Local Time)
When: June 12 at 10:00 a.m. PDT / 1:00 p.m. EDT
Where to Watch: Twitch
We will most likely see hardware announcements in this press conference as well as appearances by Tripwire Interactive (Killing Floor) and Bohemia Interactive (ARMA). We might get information on the new Battletech, news on PlayUnknown's Battlegrounds, Total War: Warhammer 2, and more.
Ubisoft (Local Time)
What's confirmed for Ubisoft's lineup will be Far Cry 5, The Crew 2, South Park: The Fractured But Whole, the next Just Dance, and the next Assassin's Creed game which is rumored to be called Assassin's Creed Origins, set in Egypt.
Based on their last few press conferences during E3, we will most likely see a new game reveal to end the show.
PlayStation (Local Time)
We expect PlayStation to show a lot of titles this year because it will be a tough year, especially during the 3rd and 4th quarter of 2017 thanks to the release of the Nintendo Switch Xbox's Project Scorpio possibly releasing this year. Likely appearances could be The Last of Us Part 2, Knack 2, God of War, Days Gone, Detroit: Become Human, Uncharted: The Lost Legacy, Gran Turismo Sport, and WiLD. With the deal with Activision, Call of Duty: World War II will be part of the lineup in PlayStation's corner and probably a gameplay demo for Destiny 2.
We would like to see more support for the PlayStation VR, more titles to support the tech similar to what they did with Resident Evil 7. Shenmue 3, Kingdom Hearts 3, and Final Fantasy VII: Remake will not be shown during this year's E3.
Nintendo (Local Time)
When: June 13 at 9:00 a.m. PDT / 12:00 p.m. EDT
Where to Watch: Nintendo
This is going to be interesting because Nintendo Switch had a great launch and now it's time to fill the shelves with new games. We will most likely see news on Arms, Fire Emblem Warriors, Mario Odyssey, probably The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild post content, Splatoon 2, and Xenoblade 2.
It's planned to be 30 minutes long so we wonder what they will focus on. Nintendo Switch is the likely bet, but hopefully it will be filled with new titles instead of the ones we know are coming.
After the press conferences, the show floor will be open. Other studios will be announcing their new games in their own way and will be showing off their games through other sites like Gamespot, IGN, and Twitch. Next week will be jam-packed and we'll be focusing on the announcements revealed in the press conferences mentioned above.
