E3 2015 Coverage Hub

Don Parsons / June 14, 2015 at 6:36 PM / Blog

Welcome to E3 2015, the grandest pageantry in all of gaming. Here we sit around and watch companies announce how they plan to make money in the year ahead. In less cynical terms, it’s also where we can find out more about our favorite franchises, what to expect and use it as a method to save money from the Steam Sale by reminding ourselves of the goodies to come later this year. TechRaptor is here to help sort through all the stuff that is going on, with our writers who are on the floor and our staff who are sitting around across the world ready to cover events as they happen. We’ll be providing up to the minute coverage on a variety of topics and in different formats so it’s up to you to decide how you want to digest E3 2015. To give a quick rundown of what we’re doing:

  • Covering all announcements from the conferences
  • Live Streaming the conferences with commentary
  • Recaps of all the conferences and daily recaps of the affairs of the day
  • Interviews from the floor
  • Coverage of non-press announcement events

With our site being full of stuff posting, you’ll be able to find the stories here organized by type.

E3 2015 Check in

We also have predictions for each of the major press conferences, so if you want to get a feel for what to expect, take a look at these articles:

There is also the IGN show which is worth commenting on but we didn’t do a prediction for it. We do know that Platinum will be revealing their new game, which has been revealed to be the new Transformers game. They will likely also be showing off the new XCom 2 game.
