E3 2021 is just around the corner. Gaming fans gather in excitement for this year’s lineup of developers to announce their upcoming games. But you may be wondering, “What is E3?”.
E3 (short for Electronic Entertainment Expo) is one of the largest gaming expos and has become an important part of the gaming community.
Usually, E3 takes place in person at the Los Angeles Convention Center, but due to the Covid-19 pandemic, they have switched to an online format for the time being.
E3 will start on June 12th and will continue until the 15th. You will be able to live stream all panels on Youtube and Twitch.
Even though these are the official dates, it doesn’t stop a few publishers from having their events at their own time.
Although the experience of attending the event will not be the same due to being broadcasted online, there are still many series to be excited about regarding this year’s show.
One of the panels set to start this year’s E3 is the “Summer Game Fest Kickoff,” which went live on June 10th.

Starting on June 12th, the first event will begin at 1 PM. EST. Where viewers will be able to watch the Broadcast Pre-Show.
Following the pre-show will be the Ubisoft Forward Pre-Show, and right after that will be the Ubisoft Forward panel.
