E3 2018 (the Electronic Entertainment Expo) is just around the corner! The expo takes place June 12 – 14 in Los Angeles, CA where gaming companies demo games, share new software/hardware/gaming related products, share progress of known games in the works, and – the most anticipated part – announce/tease brand new games.
They started admitting the public in 2017 with Gamer Passes and I have my heart set on going to E3 2019 (with hopefully a Dragon Age: 4 reveal). These passes are not cheap and, as of writing, the remaining Gamer Passes are listed at $249/gamer with the now sold out early bird price at $149. Industry professionals are still prioritized with complimentary passes and early access to spaces/events. 2017 saw over 60,000 total attendees which has caused some reconsideration due to congestion issues at the LA Convention Center. 2018 will see if improvements can be made on 2017, but if not, there may be a venue change for 2019. Whatever happens, I’m making E3 2019 a goal that I’m really excited about.
