E3 2019 Discussion

E3 2019 is almost here so I thought I'd start a thread to cover the various conferences. Big changes this year of course with Sony not attending and EA also not bothering with a conference (no big loss IMO).

In order of appearance:

EA - Saturday, June 8th - 5:15pm

No conference, but they are doing a live stream.

5:15 PM: Countdown to EA PLAY
5:30 PM: Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order (Hosted by Greg Miller and Andrea Rene)
6:00 PM: Apex Legends (Hosted by Alex "Goldenboy" Mendez)
6:30 PM: Battlefield V (Hosted by Julia Hardy and Adam Freeman)
7:00 PM: FIFA 20 (Hosted by Alex "Goldenboy" Mendez)
7:30 PM: Madden NFL 20 (Hosted by Adam Rank)
8:00 PM: The Sims 4 (Hosted by Andrea Rene)

Microsoft - Sunday, June 9th - 9pm

We should see Gears 5, Ori and the Will of the Wisps, more on Halo Infinite and I suspect the next expansion for Forza Horizon 4 will also be shown (and probably released very soon). Phil Spencer has said we'll see 14 games from their now numerous first party studios. Watch it on Mixer and link your account for MixPot goodies.

Bethesda - Monday, June 10th - 1.30am

DOOM Eternal and Wolfenstein Young Blood for sure. Possibly updates on Elder Scrolls 6 and Starfield but neither is coming anytime soon.

Devolver Digital - Monday, June 10th - 3am

Devolver's mix of indie games and jabs at the industry.

PC Gaming Show - Monday, June 10th - 6pm

Don't know, don't care. "Hosts Sean "Day[9]" Plott and Frankie Ward are returning for another blast of never-before-seen trailers, announcements, and developer interviews."

Ubisoft - Monday, June 10th - 9pm

Expect more on Ghost Recon Breakpoint as well as a full reveal for Watch Dogs 3: Legion which has just leaked. Also recently leaked is a roller derby game called Roller Champions. There's no Assassin's Creed game this year so don't expect to see one and their pirate multiplayer game Skull & Bones was delayed to 2020 so that could also be absent. Beyond Good & Evil 2 seems a long way off but that hasn't stopped them showing it off the past two years.

AMD - Monday, June 10th - 11pm

This is billed as "AMD’s showcase of next-generation gaming technologies and content" and will be hosted by Geoff Keighley. Not sure what to expect really - obviously they're heavily involved in the next gen consoles but I doubt they'll share any details. More than likely this will cover gaming on their Ryzen 3 CPUs and Navi graphics cards which were recently announced for a July release.

Kinda Funny Showcase - Tuesday, June 11th - 12:30am

Similar to the Showcase stream they did back in December around the time the Game Awards was shown, this is another indie focused stream promising 60 plus games.

Square Enix - Tuesday, June 11th - 2am

This could actually be worth watching this year. Expect more on Final Fantasy VII Remake and they've also confirmed we'll see the reveal of the Avengers game they've been working on. Other possibles are an update on Dying Light 2 and an unknown leaked project by the name of Outriders.

Nintendo - Tuesday, June 11th - 5pm

Animal Crossing, Luigi's Mansion 3, Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening, Fire Emblem: Three Houses and Astral Chain (Platinum Games) are all games we know about that are expected to release this year. Pokemon Sword / Shield are getting their own pre-E3 direct so it's unlikely we'll see those in the E3 Direct, but we could get an update on the Pokemon team's 'Town' RPG that was announced a while back. Platinum Games are also known to be working on Bayonetta 3 so that could get a tease. OR we might just get 30mins on wallpaper patterns for your Animal Crossing house.

Nope. Tried it once (back when their first effort was getting all the love) and didn't find it funny.

Added a few more to the OP. There's also a Pokemon Direct tomorrow at 2pm (June 5th) covering Sword & Shield. And a Google Stadia pre-E3 stream on Thursday, 6th June at 5pm.

Some Bandai Namco leaks overnight:

Ni No Kuni 1 is getting a PS4/PC Remaster ("improved graphics and performance") and a Switch port (not 'remastered')

Tales of the Arise - new PC/PS4/XB1 Tales game

Elden Ring - PC/PS4/XB1 - this is the heavily rumoured and now very real George R. R. Martin / Hidetaka Miyazaki / From Software game

10 minutes from the Microsoft conference and I've avoided all leaks and spoilers so far.

Yay.

They've got E3 to themselves and they tell us as much about Scarlett as Sony told us about their new console 2 months ago.

Strong first half hour and the rest...

For it not to be one big meh would be nice.

Just about as much of Halo as we saw in the last E3.

Hardly anything about their streaming service compared to what's come out recently from Stadia.

Nothing about their new console other than it'll load quickly.

No Fable. Not much from their other acquired studios.

Very little impact after they talked a big game and had the floor to themselves.

120 FPS at True 8K in a Triple AAA new game seems like a pipe dream or a very very expensive system chuck in 8K textures your looking at 150-200GB installs as the norm...

They weren’t going to say too much at this stage, they know have their notepad out ready to trump them if they reveal too much.

I would like to know about this new C/G/APU they have with AMD if Sony are partnering with them too.
