E3 2018 Press Conference Times and Where to Watch (South Africa)

Halo 6 News Xbox Release Date E3 2018 Trailer Beta more Xbox One X Microsoft updates

Halo 6 News Xbox Release Date E3 2018 Trailer Beta more Xbox One X Microsoft updates

We'll likely hear about more Xbox One X-enhanced titles for the year ahead, but when it comes to games, we're left scratching our heads.

The timing is a risk for Microsoft as it will be happening one day before Playstation's Days of Play event. There's been no pizzaz whatsoever during these conferences in previous years and it's hard to see that changing for E3 2018. We'll dive right in with the first press conference on the list which, at the time of this writing, is now less than 24 hours away.

The conference has previously been used by Microsoft to show off exclusive titles, new IPs and state of the art hardware (the Xbox One X was originally shown off at Microsoft's E3 presser, for example). Don't be surprised to see announcements for Halo 6 and Forza Horizon 4, as well as a discussion about the future of Sea of Thieves.

A surprise reveal on Thursday, Hitman 2 has not just been confirmed as being in development, but even has a release date already - November 13 this year. For PlayStation games, go here. Hideo Komija's long-awaited Death Stranding remains something of a mystery.

We know a little bit about what Bethesda is going to talk about at E3 2018. The Last of US Part 2 is going to be another exclusive game for the PlayStation 4.

Spencer stated to The Verge, "The number one request from our customers... was to get new blockbuster games into Game Pass".

The open-world setting and environmental combat system caught the eye when it was shown off during Sony's event, as did a cameo from Miles Morales - the character who succeeds Peter Parker in the role of Spider-Man. The live stream will be available via Twitch, YouTube, and Facebook.

Microsoft's press conference kicks off at 1 PM PT / 4 PM ET / 9 PM BST (6 AM AET on June 11).

Nintendo is not holding a press conference.

He also added what the team over at Microsoft is looking at the most regarding their current and future generations, "I look at investing into three key areas: content, cloud, and community - that is, making great games, making the experience of accessing and playing them better and improving things for the players overall". Metroid Prime 4 and a new Super Smash Bros title will hog the limelight at E3 2018.

E3 2018 is here, and that means it's time for game announcements, reveals, and trailers.

Nintendo is set to announce a bunch of new games through a pre-recorded presentation at 9am PT on June 12, which is approximately 9:30pm India time.
