E3 is right around the corner, and its that time of the year where the biggest names in gaming get a chance to show off what they’ve been working on. For the majority of us who aren’t able to go to the actual event in LA, the press conferences have always been livestreamed. But unfortunately for Australians (and other countries on the other side of the globe), the times are quite inconvenient – So here is a guide for the press conference times in Australia.
Monday 13th June
What to expect: Gameplay demos for Battlefield 1 and Titanfall 2, more information on Mass Effect: Andromeda, and a huge block of time dedicated to sports games.
