E3 2019: What to expect from Microsoft, Nintendo, and EA


Gears 5 is coming to Xbox One and PC. You can check out the full EA PLAY schedule here, with the show running for a little more than three hours on Saturday morning. Don't expect anything but silence from Sony.

This weekend, the most awaited event of the year it's coming - E3 2019. We already knew that Nintendo would be focusing on 2019 games at E3 this year and now the company has gone a step further and revealed the exact games that will be playable on the show floor. Maybe we will finally find out details about the upcoming Avengers game.

It is known that Gears 5 will be a major centerpiece of Microsoft's E3 showcase, along with fourteen other first-party titles for the Xbox One, which include a rumor Fable game, and a brand new, next-generation Xbox Console. Regardless of what's revealed, Microsoft's press conference is going to be a big one.

Nintendo's Treehouse: Live stream will take place right after the Direct and at 9 a.m. PT on the following Wednesday and Thursday, which is when we'll get to see even more gameplay for these exciting new titles if they don't show up in the Direct.

PCMag will be there as well, covering every press conference, event, and announcement, and trawling the show floor for the most interesting news. Those games are Pokémon Sword and Shield, The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening (the upcoming remake), Luigi's Mansion 3 and Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order. Given its June 28th release date, Super Mario Maker 2 will likely get some attention during the show, but beyond that, Nintendo is keeping its cards close to the chest. The company will show the new title Rebellion, and maybe various numbers of developers such as Chucklefish, Raw Fury, Annapurna Interactive, Epic Games, Perfect World Entertainment, and Paradox Entertainment.

An E3 2019 Media Briefing on June 9 has the potential to cover everything from big name releases like Halo Infinite, Cyberpunk 2077 and Borderlands 3 to big hardware and subscription service announcements like the Xbox Two and Project xCloud. There should be some big games on display from a variety of publishers too, so E3 2019 will definitely be worth following.

E3 2019 is nearly upon us which means we'll be staying up at an ungodly hour to witness the very latest in gaming goodness.
