E3 2016 - Although we've already posted up a handy E3 2016 timetable, we want to make sure everyone has all the livestream links and pertinent details for this year's huge Electronics Entertainment Expo.

 

full-e3-2016-livestream-schedule_1

 

A quick reminder: as you scan the list, you'll notice some major studios like Capcom and 2K Games/Rockstar Games are missing. Rockstar is expected to drop some huge reveals with Red Dead Redemption 2 and possibly GTA VI at E3, but we've not heard a peep from them about E3. So expect to see Red Dead Redemption 2 revealed on Sony or Microsoft's press conference--ditto for Capcom's Dead Rising 4, Resident Evil 7, and hopefully (but probably not) Devil May Cry 5. Click here for a list of all confirmed studios and companies exhibiting at E3 2016.

 

We'll also be pushing out news posts embedded with the E3 conference livestreams so you don't miss a single minute of the action.

YouTube LIVE At E3

 

Time - Sunday, June 12 at 3PM to Thursday, June 16 at 9PM

 

What to Expect - YouTube is hosting a huge live event hosted by Geoff Keighley with daily showcases, reveals, and developer interviews. IGN and GameSpot will be contributing with daily shows in between major press conferences, and since the schedule is so extensive we advise you to head on over to the YouTube Live at E3 website for more info.

 

Livestream - YouTube E3 channel

EA

 

Time - Sunday June 12 at 1PM PST / 4PM EST

 

What to Expect - EA will show off Battlefield 1, gameplay for Mass Effect: Andromeda, Respawn's Titanfall 2, BioWare's secret new IP, Star Wars: Battlefront 2, and maybe even Visceral's new action-based Star Wars game.

 

Livestream - EA's Twitch channel or on YouTube's Live at E3 stream

Bethesda

 

Time - Sunday, June 12 at 7PM PST / 10PM EST

 

What to Expect - Bethesda will showcase Dishonored 2, but rumors hint at Prey 2, Wolfenstein 2, The Evil Within 2 and a pretty big surprise with the Skyrim Definitive Edition for PS4 and Xbox One with full mod support. We could also see new Fallout 4 mod info and DLC as well as DOOM singleplayer DLC to boot. It's very, very unlikely that Elder Scrolls VI will be revealed.

PC Gaming Show

 

Time - Monday, June 13 at 11:30 AM PST / 2:30PM EST

 

What to Expect - Dedicated to PC gaming only, expect to see announcements from PC hardware-makers like AMD and Razer, with a huge showcase of games pushing the latest and greatest of hardware to its limits.

 

How to Watch - PC Gamer's Twitch Channel, on YouTube, or Facebook Live

Microsoft

 

Time - Monday June 13th at 9:30AM PST / 12:30PM EST

 

What to Expect - Microsoft is going to have a huge showcase planned for E3; expect the 40% smaller Xbox Mini with possible 4K UHD Blu-ray playback, a tease at the ultra-powerful Xbox Scorpio (that may or may not have external video card support), and two new Xbox streaming devices: a Chromecast-like stick and a Xbox set-top box that sports game-streaming.

 

As far as games we'll likely see Crackdown 3, Cuphead, Gears of War 4, Halo 5 updates, Halo Wars 2, Scalebound?, Dead Rising 4 and more. Also expect to see Microsoft push its new Project Helix initiative that effectively merges the Xbox and Windows 10 PC brand. This means we will see a ton of Xbox games also releasing on Windows 10, and MS will take its time explaining why it's a good thing for everyone.

 

Livestream -The Xbox E3 Briefing will be shown on all Xbox One and Xbox 360 consoles via the Xbox LIVE Events Player app, onXbox Twitch channel, YouTube's Live at E3 stream, Spike TV channel, and Facebook Live.

Ubisoft

 

Time - Monday, June 13 at 1PM PST / 4PM EST

 

What to Expect - Tons of Watch Dogs 2 content including gameplay footage and new info on the "seamless" drop-in drop-out co-op mode, the dynamic open-world Far Cry-esque Ghost Recon: Wildlands, South Park Fractured But Whole, the awesome-looking medieval For Honor, The Division DLC and possible a tease for Ubisoft's brand new AAA IP set for 2017.

Sony

 

Time - Monday, June 13 at 6PM PST / 9PM EST

 

What to Expect - Although Sony has confirmed the upgraded PlayStation 4K is real, it won't be shown at E3, so don't expect any major announcements.

 

Expect to see new gameplay footage for titles like Final Fantasy VII: Remastered, Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare (as Xbox has Battlefield 1 and Activision won't be at the show), Rockstar's huge Red Dead Redemption 2 sequel and maybe even GTA 6, Quantic Dream's new game Detroit: Become Human, Destiny's new Rise of Iron expansion.

 

First-party games like the new Nordic God of War 4, the hugely anticipated The Last Guardian, and Horizon: Zero Dawn (despite its recent delay) will be shown off, along with No Man's Sky (despite its recent delay too!). Also expect to see a flurry of indie games and PlayStation VR titles.

 

Livestream - PlayStation Twitch Channel, on YouTube, or via the PlayStation Experience in theaters

 

Tuesday, June 14

Nintendo

 

Time - Tuesday June 14, 9AM PST / 12PM EST

 

What to Expect - Nintendo's brand new NX console won't be unveiled or showcased at the event, so don't expect any major surprises there. Outside of a new 90-minute gameplay trailer for the new Legend of Zelda game, Nintendo's E3 2016 presence will be very scarce. There's also rumblings that we could see some Pokemon Sun and Moon action as well, and maybe some smaller eShop announcements.

 

Livestream - Nintendo Twitch Channel, or on YouTube

Square Enix

 

Time - Square Enix has a huge E3 showcase this year with hour-by-hour reveals and reports beginning at 11:45 AM PST / 2:45 PM EST. Check below for the full lineup for Square Enix's E3 presser

 

What to Expect - Rather than have a single press conference this year, Square Enix plans on showing off its games and content on an hour schedule. A huge list of what to expect is listed below, but before you ask, Kingdom Hearts 3 and Final Fantasy VII: Remastered aren't on the list. I fully expect Sony to show of FF7 Remastered during their event, but KH3 might not be at the show at all. Sure Sony could show it off too, but Square has promised that Kingdom Hearts 3 updates are coming "this Winter", so we might not see the game at E3.
