E3 2021 is finally here! The Electronic Entertainment Exposition (E3) is easily the year’s most prolific and engaging event for video game news, releases and events.

What used to take place at the Los Angeles Convention Centre, has turned into a digital-only format due to the COVID-19 global pandemic. With that said, the show continues to partner with some of gaming’s biggest publishers for unique showcase events. These digital first showcases take place throughout what would usually be the traditional E3 week. Courtesy of the digital nature of the event, many of the events have been spread out to more suitable times. As such, we have collected all of the major events with their corresponding dates and times and converted them to South Africa Standard Time (for our local readers).

Whether you are only interested in Xbox and Bethesda, or something a little more traditional like Nintendo, there is no doubt E3 2021 has something for you.

Given the sheer number of massive displays throughout E2 2021, it is a shame companies like Sony have opted to stay away. Regardless, there is still a lot to offer, and gamers on all platforms are in for a treat! SaveSaveSaveSave
