The biggest gaming conference E3 is just a month away from now and being totally honest, we really can’t contain ourselves. Sony Interactive Entertainment chairman Shawn Layden confirmed that the company’s conference will commence from 11 June, 6 PM Pacific (2 AM BST, June 12).
What should we be expecting from the conference?
This time’s conference will be a little different from the usual. It has been confirmed by Sony that there won’t be any hardware announcements or releases this time. This year, the E3 conference will be more oriented towards games only.
We are expecting to gain a deeper dive into the games like Spider-Man are expect that further trailers regarding the gameplay will be revealed. The four stars which will be stealing the spotlight this year are the exclusives we all have been waiting for quite a while. These include Marvel’s Spider-Man, Kojima Productions’ Death Stranding, Sucker Punch’s Ghosts of Tsushima, and finally the most anticipated of all, The Last of Us Part II from Naughty Dog.
Layden’s remarks regarding the big four were:
“This year will feature exclusive looks and deep dives four of our big titles. I think everyone will be thrilled to see it. We’re taking a different angle on how we’re bringing it out.”
Not only will we bee having a look at these four titles, but there will also be some announcement for PS4, PS4 Pro and PS VR from the third party and indie developers.
“We’ll have some announcements with our third-party publishing partners”, Layden stated, “We’ll have some new things to talk about there, as well as our continued support for independent development – we’ll throw some highlight of that.”
According to TechRadar, Sony announced that it will be reducing the number of free games for PS Plus from March 2019. So the subscribers will be apparently left with two free PS4 games. Let’s hope they do have an update relevant to that PS Plus too.
You’ll be able to watch the live stream of the conference on Twitch, YouTube, Facebook and PlayStation’s website.
