Here is the confirmed date and time of Microsoft’s Xbox E3 2018 press conference.
It’s all change for Xbox at E3 2018, with a new venue for its traditional E3 press conference, plus a notable shift towards focusing on fans and influencers.
Instead of having an Xbox booth on Los Angeles Convention Center show floor – which will be replaced by a dedicated Mixer zone (joy) – the company is instead shifting its wares to the nearby Microsoft Theater.
According to a recent post on Xbox Wire, the theatre will host “various Xbox FanFest activities, hands-on gameplay and demos for all E3 attendees and more.”
Microsoft will hold its Xbox E3 Briefing on Sunday, June 10 at 1:00pm PST, with 1,000 free tickets up for grabs via an online raffle. The briefing will also be streamed on the official Xbox Mixer channel, as well as Twitch and YouTube.
Xbox E3 2018 Briefing
Sunday, June 10, 2018
- PT: 1pm
- ET: 4pm
- BST: 9pm
- CEST: 10pm
It’s an important year for the Xbox. Despite having the most super-duper console ever made, and a suite of excellent gamer friendly services, the Xbox One remains in the shadow of the PlayStation 4, and a resurgent Nintendo.
In a nutshell, the Xbox One needs some exclusive games to complete its offering. We can expect details of a new Halo or Gears of War, perhaps even both, but our hopes are pinned on the rumoured return of the Fable franchise, with Playground Games at the helm.
And our random ‘please make it happen’ prediction, is for the return of the best Xbox 360 game ever made, 1 vs. 100.
Update: 06/10/18 – Well, that didn’t happen, but there were plenty of other announcements. Here’s the full list.
Check out the full E3 2018 press conference schedule.
