E3, The Electronic Entertainment Expo, has long been a premiere moment in the video game calendar. It, along with other conventions, like Gamescom and Tokyo Game Show, are somewhat unique to the video game world. They’re about fan interaction, yes, and consumers can try games before they come out while potentially meeting some legendary game creators. But, more importantly some may say, they are about the press conferences.

The press conferences at E3 have usually been the centerpiece because it’s where all the surprises happen. Games get announced, usually to earth-shattering applause, and the shows various companies put together become better and better on the whole, each passing year. Or, they’re abject failures. It depends on the year.

These days, E3 is more than just a week – as more companies get involved with their own press conferences, and more and more studios announce and talk about upcoming games in the lead up to the show, it can feel like two weeks, maybe even more, where E3 is this nebulous idea, and the excuse for any and all news about video games announced during this time. Whether people want that news to get out or not.

This year, I’m attempting to compile all of the announcements in one easy to find location. This post – likely the longest of them all – basically covers everything that’s happened before the traditional start of E3, which is tomorrow. But now that Microsoft, Bethesda Studios, and Devolver Digital all had press conferences today, Electronic Arts had one yesterday, and companies galore have been announcing things over the past week, all bets are off. Things can get overwhelming. Cool news can get buried by even greater news.

Well, not here (hopefully). All of the news is listed alphabetically by game title below. This will be updated as time goes on, so don’t look away – except, I guess, for when I post the results of tomorrow’s press conferences. You can look away then.
