Guide What Time Is EA's E3 2018 Press Conference?
And what to expect
Ah, good old Electronic Arts. Despite being one of the world's biggest video game publishers, EA can never seem to get its E3 press conferences right. For a few years now, the company has splintered from the Los Angeles event in order to host its own "we promise this has nothing to do with E3" showcases, but everyone still...

What's got you most hyped?
E3 is literally hours away from kicking off, so it's time to ask: what PlayStation 4 game are you most excited to see? Is it one of Sony's 'Big Four'? Is it a third party title?

Welcome to Basswood
French developer DONTNOD only recently released Vampyr, but it’s already back with a new title: Twin Mirror.

E3 2018 Dead or Alive 6 Brings Blood and Sweat to PS4 Next Year
Certainly not dead
Wow, that came out of nowhere. Dead or Alive 6 is official, and it's coming to PlayStation 4 "early" next year. You can get a decent eyeful of the game via the trailer that we've embedded above. Despite its frankly mental downloadable content shenanigans, we were quite fond of Dead or Alive 5, and this next title looks to build...

Talking Point How Can Sony Win E3 2018?
And so the next great battle of our era awaits: E3 2018 is days away, and sides are already being selected. The tribal element to gaming’s greatest show is tiring and detracts from the celebratory aspect of the event itself, but there’s no getting away from it: a winner will be selected in the heat of the moment – and a victor...
E3 2018 New Splinter Cell Looks Like a Lock as E3 Leak Proves 100% Accurate So Far
A new Splinter Cell announcement is all but guaranteed for E3 2018 at this point. How so? Well, around a month ago, Walmart Canada supposedly leaked a whole bunch of secret PlayStation 4 titles. The leak included the likes of RAGE 2 and Assassin's Creed Odyssey, both of which were officially announced not long after. It also fe
E3 2018 Now Just Cause 4 Has Leaked Via Steam Advert
That Walmart Canada leak continues to deliver. The enormous outage of unannounced games, which has been legitimised by the subsequent reveals of RAGE 2 and Assassin's Creed Odyssey, had Just Cause 4 among its listings, and it looks like it's about to be made official. In the above tweet, you'll b
Feature Ubisoft's Best and Worst E3 Moments of the PS4 Generation
One last thing
Ubisoft always puts on a great E3 press conference. Debuting new titles every year, supporting its already released ones with DLC, and saving big reveals as its "one last thing", the French company has really fine-tuned its style to a tee. But that doesn't mean there hasn't been one or two hiccups along the way. These are Ubisoft's E3...
E3 2018 Hitman 2 Will Not Be Episodic, Launches 13th November
Full game from day one
We really enjoyed Hitman’s episodic format, but its successor will launch as a full game from day one. IO Interactive has promised a regular stream of content drops and updates, but you won’t have to wait for any of the levels to arrive. Oh, and you’ll be able to play from 13th November – that’s not far away. The...

E3 2018 Activision's Bringing a Trio of Big PS4 Games to E3
Spyro, Destiny, and CoD
Activision will be bringing three big PlayStation 4 titles to E3 2018, the publisher has announced.

We obviously already know quite a bit...

E3 2018 Strange Brigade Shoves a Shotgun in the Face of Seteki
Rebellion knows its way around a good co-op game, so there’s very little to not like about the upcoming Strange Brigade – a 1930s-themed pulp adventure for up to four players. This brand new E3 2018 trailer shows the title off in all of its glory, demonstrating the extent of its gameplay variety – and also its cast’s unique...
E3 2018 Sony Builds the Hype with Snappy E3 Teaser Trailer
Are you ready?
Sony has already outlined exactly what to expect from its E3 2018 press conference. We'll be getting a closer look at four of its major exclusives: Death Stranding, Ghost of Tsushima, The Last of Us: Part II, and Spider-Man.

SEGA reveals full lineup
Atlus is set to announce two new titles on 7th June, and it’s looking like they’ll be Persona 3: Dancing Moon Night and Persona 5: Dancing Star Night.

E3 2018 Capcom Bringing Mega Man, Street Fighter to Show Floor
Capcom’s announced its lineup of playable E3 2018 games, and it’s more or less what you’d expect from the publisher. Perhaps more than anyone, it’s the Blue Bomber that’s headlining the showfloor for the firm, which is a sentence we never thought we’d write given all of the hullabaloo with Mighty No. 9. But yes, both Mega...
Feature EA's Best and Worst E3 Moments of the PS4 Generation
Taking the bad with the good
The EA showcase has been an E3 mainstay for generations now, but its conference always goes one way or the other. In recent years, it has been synonymous with the "worst conference of the show" award, whether that's thanks to factors outside of the games themselves, or a lacklustre showing in terms of reveals. These are...
E3 2018 Tetris Effect Brings a Trippy Take on a Classic to PS4, PSVR
Well this is going to be bloody good. Rez Infinite is already one of the best experiences you can have on PlayStation VR, and now Tetsuya Mizuguchi is back with a trippy twist on a classic: Tetris Effect. The debut trailer definitely has a Rez aesthetic to it, but it’s backed by the auteur’s signature electropop sound. The game will...

News Popular Sony E3 'Leak' Is Utter Nonsense
Here we go again
E3 2018 is mere days away, and as is the case every year, "leaked" documents are doing the rounds on the internet. But there's one in particular that we've seen covered on numerous websites as if it actually carries some weight. We're not quite sure where it originated, but it doesn't really matter when it's clearly nonsense to...
News Tales of Vesperia Remaster Website Discovered, Tales Fans Go Mental
Holy crap, is it actually happening? Thanks to some super sleuthing from Gematsu, it would appear that Bandai Namco is preparing a Tales of Vesperia-related announcement for E3 2018. Naturally, fans of the Japanese role-playing series have lost their minds over the news. If you're wondering why that is, it's because Vesperia is widely...
News Sony Bins E3 2018 Press Conference Pre-Show
Counting down with daily reveals instead
Sony’s definitely been experimenting with different press conference formats over the past year, and one of its bolder ideas at E3 2017 was to deliver an hour-long pre-show prior to the main event itself. For many, the pre-show was better than the briefing that followed, bringing a wide-array of...
Feature Bethesda's Best and Worst E3 Moments of the PS4 Generation
Single player dedication
Bethesda will be hosting its fourth E3 press conference at this year's show, but it's still had plenty of time over the past three years to wow audiences with some classic moments, and try to make us forget about one or two lowlights. Let's look back on them. DOOM rips and tears with an impressive showing: Press had...
News Fallout 76 Is Going All-Out at E3 2018
Bethesda gets the big one
Every year, one of E3's biggest games gets pasted across the towers of The Hotel Figueroa in Los Angeles. We're going to assume that this prime advertising space costs quite a bit of cash to secure, so the fact that Bethesda's nabbed it for Fallout 76 is perhaps an indication that the publisher is going all-in on...
News Sony to Announce New PS4 Games Daily Prior to E3 2018
The countdown begins
Sony’s counting down to E3 2018 by making a new announcement every single day starting from 6th June running right the way through to the organisation’s press conference on 11th June. The appetisers will air live at 8AM PT/4PM BST every day, and will span everything from a first-party release date through to brand new games...
Feature What Does Sony's E3 Announcement Record Look Like?
Have shorter PlayStation pressers led to less reveals?
Much has been made of Sony’s change in approach to its E3 press conferences over the past two years. With a shorter run time and less people on stage, the company lets the games do the talking. But has this resulted in more brand new experiences being announced for PlayStation platforms?...
Poll Which PS4 Exclusive Has You Most Hyped at Sony's E3 2018 Showcase?
The best of a great bunch
Sony is approaching things differently when it comes to E3 2018, as its first-party focus will lie at the feet of four exclusive games when PlayStation takes to the stage. Death Stranding, Ghost of Tsushima, Spider-Man, and The Last of Us: Part II are all planning on wowing audiences around the world with brand new trailers...
Feature What Not to Expect at E3 2018
Tempering the hype
E3 season is always about dreaming big. Sony's 2015 press conference is of course the perfect example of fan-fiction turned reality with the re-reveal of The Last Guardian and the outlandish announcements of Final Fantasy VII Remake and Shenmue III dominating chatter for that particular year. But sometimes it's a good idea to put...
Talking Point Do We Really Need E3?
Industry celebration, or shouting contest?
E3 is widely considered to be the biggest week in the gaming calendar, but is that actually true anymore? In just over ten days, publishers and platform holders will descend upon Los Angeles to reveal to the world their biggest wares – well, assuming they haven’t already leaked on Walmart’s website...
News Bloodborne and Horizon Sequels Touted for E3 2018, But Don't Get Your Hopes Up
Speculation seems far-fetched
It was inevitable, wasn’t it? Sony telegraphed exactly what fans can expect from its E3 2018 press conference this year, but here we are dismissing rumours regarding Bloodborne 2 and a Horizon: Zero Dawn sequel. You may have seen this headline doing the rounds overnight; it all seems to stem from a
News Sony's E3 2018 Press Conference Returns to Theatres
Attend for freebies
For the last few years, Sony has hosted a PlayStation E3 Experience event across the Americas and Canada that allows members of the public to watch its E3 press conference live in theatres.

Soapbox Death Stranding Is an E3 2018 Enigma, and That's Exciting
How often does a game actually surprise you? God of War is probably the last announcement that actually took me aback; I was genuinely expecting a repurposing of the franchise’s established format, albeit transposed into a Norse environment. So when Kratos stepped out of the shadows at E3 2016 and Sony Santa Monica introduced...
News This Is One Way to Tease Ghost of Tsushima's E3 2018 Showcase
Sword up, son
Ghost of Tsushima is one of the four games that Sony’s set to showcase at its E3 2018 press conference, and much like with Death Stranding and The Last of Us: Part II, the company putting out that information early has allowed Sucker Punch to start teasing. Take this photograph
Soapbox Cyberpunk 2077 Could Quite Easily Dominate E3 2018
The future is now
It's been three years since The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt released, and it still stands as one of the very best games of this generation. The best in my humble opinion -- but regular readers will be sick and tired of hearing me say that. I know not everyone feels the same way about Geralt of Rivia's last hurrah, but I don't...
News Bethesda's Probably Gunning for Another Short and Sweet E3 Press Conference
'It won't be 3 hours long'
Just a quick update on Bethesda's E3 2018 press conference: don't expect an especially long showing. Replying to fans on Twitter, Bethesda's ever-talkative Pete Hines makes it sound like the publisher's planned out another relatively short event. "I assure you it won’t be three hours long," Hines wrote. Given Bethesda's...
News Oh God, Devolver Digital's Doing Another E3 Press Conference
There will be blood (probably)
So, Devolver Digital's hosting another E3 "press conference" next month. Last year, the indie mega publisher streamed an insane presser parody, complete with psychotic CEOs and exploding heads. No, seriously. Anyway, the company's "big fancy press conference" kicks off on the 10th June at 20:00 Pacific. That's 04:00...
News Spider-Man is Set to Swing Across the LA Skyline with Huge E3 2018 Ad
Painting in progress
For the third year in a row, Sony is set to advertise another gigantic PS4 exclusive with a suitably large mural in Los Angeles, as E3 draws closer and closer. This time around, it's the turn of the web slinger Spider-Man to grace the LA skyline as the gigantic ad begins to take shape. Last year, God of War set up shop in the...
News PS5 Won't Be at E3 2018, Sony Unsurprisingly Confirms
No hardware announcements at show
There will be no Sony hardware announcements at E3 2018, meaning you can put your anticipation for the PlayStation 5 back in its box. While it perhaps won’t come as a huge surprise, Shawn Layden confirmed the tidbit on today’s PlayStation Blogcast. It perhaps indicates that the organisation is aware next-gen...
Soapbox Sony's Muddled E3 2018 Messaging a Matter of Expectation Management
Stand and deliver
Sony’s E3 2018 plans have become clearer, but its messaging overall has been muddled today. I was ready to read the company the riot act when Shawn Layden appeared on a podcast earlier, talking about a “different” kind of press conference. As it happens I’m glad I waited, because further clarifications from the company seem...
News Live Audience Will Be Present for Sony's E3 2018 Showcase
Sony’s “not-so traditional” E3 2018 press conference is beginning to sound more and more like a traditional E3 2018 press conference. PlayStation Blog’s Sid Shuman has been fielding questions in response to today’s muddled announcement, and has
