It has begun… AGAIN!
Despite going on hiatus for the last two years, it’s wouldn’t right to miss this another opportunity to cover one of the biggest events of the year. Due to COVID-19, last year’s E3 event was canceled. This year, E3 will not be an huge in-person gathering of gamers and developers but take the route DC has with the DC Fandome event with a digital show featuring a number of development and publishing partners. This will give everyone the chance to see trailers and announcements online while giving each publishing companies the chance to showcase their own events.
E3 2021 begins on Saturday, June 12th but you can still register to be a part of the global four-day virtual event that will feature presentations from publishers like, Nintendo, Microsoft and more. Register here to gain access to the E3 2021 online portal and app, a key hub for the duration of the show.
In any event, we will be more involved than other times. So we want to announce that our coverage for the 2021 E3 event will be covering all new games and hardware that each gaming company/studio has to offer. Our love for games is one of the reasons Sparx Entertainment exist. So our writers, J. Johnson, Sean Wall, UkNO, and The Average Player will be the ones providing the articles and we hope you enjoy the content as well as the events coming up.
