This year’s E3 event will be an all-digital event and in order to participate, you’ll use an app and also the E3 website to check out this year’s offerings.
Using the online portal and app will serve as the central hub for the event and will host virtual booths, events, video conferencing, profile and avatar creation, forums and more. Media access will begin on June 7 with public access starting on Saturday, June 12, the first day of E3.
“From the moment we decided to host E3 virtually, we’ve been focused on providing an interactive experience for fans around the globe that goes beyond the typical livestream,” said Stanley Pierre-Louis, President & CEO of the ESA. “The result is a bespoke online portal and app that will allow fans, media and industry professionals to have an E3 experience designed to run parallel to the four-day broadcast, laying the foundation for interactive E3 elements to continue beyond this year’s all-virtual show.”
Furthermore, the portal will be where the E3 live broadcast will happen, and the ESA plans to add interactive overlays to the program, including polls, tweets and more. The broadcast will be hosted by Alex “Goldenboy” Mendez, Jacki Jing and Greg Miller.
Registration for access to the E3 portal will be free and begins later this month. The all-digital E3 2021 experience runs from Saturday, June 12 through Tuesday, June 15, 2021.
