Welcome to the E3 season, honey. well it’s not quite E3 this year. Not sure what to call it: non-E3? Maybe incorporate Geoff Keighley’s name into it: Key3? G3? Despite not having the usual event this year, there are still plenty of showcases going on, including today’s Summer Game Fest.
Keighley is back as host, with the presentation set to showcase a ton of cool video games. If you’re wondering how to watch Summer Game Fest, we’ve got you covered.
Summer Game Fest: how to watch
This year’s Summer Game Fest is unique because you don’t have to watch it glued to your desk. It’s streaming in a variety of IMAX theaters across the US and Canada if you can. You can see if it’s showing at a theater near you and buy tickets at IMAX website. (opens in new tab)
If you’re like me and don’t live in the US (or prefer your window displays in the comfort of your own home), there are still plenty of ways to tune in. You can check out the Summer Game Fest via Youtube (opens in new tab), Muscular contraction (opens in new tab), Facebook (opens in new tab) or twitter (opens in new tab). Creators like Ludwig and CouRage will also be broadcasting the event if reacting together with someone else is more their vibe.
The Summer Game Fest presentation starts today, June 9at the 11 am PT / 2 pm ET / 7 pm BST.
Summer Game Fest: what to expect
If you expected a ton of unannounced titles to come out of today’s Summer Game Fest, you might want to temper your expectations a little. On a Twitter Spaces chat (opens in new tab), Keighley mentioned that this year’s presentation will mainly focus on games that have already been announced. That doesn’t mean there aren’t a ton of goodies to go through just yet, with the presentation promising footage from Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2, Gotham Knights, and even an appearance from Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.
There will also be appearances from the likes of 2K, Bandai Namco, Capcom, EA, Sega and Warner Bros. Summer Game Fest Expectations (opens in new tab), but who knows what today will bring. Persona 5 please?
