E3 2016 is officially a week away and we are gearing up to cover what appears to be a very interesting edition of the annual gaming show. While Both Microsoft and Sony are expected to introduce hardware revisions of their respective gaming consoles, the Redmond giant may also reveal the first Xbox One VR experiences along the latest bits about all the games being developed and/or published by Microsoft Studios.
If you want to follow the news about the gaming show in real time, several participants will be live-streaming their press conferences and our colleagues from Polygon have set up a handy list of all major events with their respective video streams. We have listed for you below the livestreams of some of the most Microsoft-relevant events below.
Electronic Arts previously revealed that it would ditch E3 this year in favor of their own “EA Play” offsite event in LA accessible to fans. In any event, EA’s press conference is set for Sunday, June 12 at 1 p.m. PT / 4 p.m. ET and we expect to learn more about Titanfall 2, Star Wars and Battlefield.
Back at the Dice 2016 awards in February, Director of Bethesda Game Studios Todd Howard teased that the game studio was currently working on three new games which are “different than anything we’ve done before.” We hope to hear more about these new games during their press conference which is Sunday, June 12 at 7 p.m. PT / 10 p.m. ET. Furthermore, the company may also share some information about upcoming content for Fallout 4 and Doom as well as more details on Dishonored 2.
