E3 2019: What to expect from the world’s biggest video game show

E3 2019 is upon us. Here are the biggest games and news we expect to see at E3 2019.

E3 2019
E3 2019 officially starts on June 11, but press conferences and live streams by developers to unveil new games will start as early as this weekend.

One of the biggest Gaming convention, Electronics Entertainment Expo (E3) is going to commence on June 11. The expo will take place in Los Angeles at the Los Angeles Convention Center starting June 11 and will go on till June 13.

At the convention, we will get to see announcements from Xbox, Ubisoft and many more. Most of these announcements will also be live streamed online. This will be an interesting E3 convention as many major names like Sony PlayStation and EA Games are skipping it. This will give limelight to a few other names like Microsoft and Nintendo to shine.

Here’s everything you need to know about E3 2019

We also got to see new gameplay for Madden 20 and FIFA 20.

Sony has confirmed that it would skip this year’s E3 trade show. Speculation is rife that Sony could hold a separate event later this year to announce the PlayStation 5, a sequel to the PS4. Also, the company recently started its State of Play pre-recorded Nintendo-style online streams in which it shows off a handful of new PS4 and PS VR titles.

During the briefing, Microsoft will also showcase trailers for unannounced titles coming in 2019 and in-depth looks at previously announced games.  We are also likely to see the first look at Microsoft’s cloud-based game streaming service, xCloud.
