“E3 2021 is set to continue its legacy as the premier video game industry event as we add new publishers, sponsors and partners” said Stanley Pierre-Louis, President & CEO of the ESA. “We can’t wait to share more details about this virtual event for audiences around the globe.”

To enhance the virtual experience, E3 has revamped their Online Portal and App to enable attendees to get the most out of the event.

“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.”

Registration for access to the online E3 2021 portal will be free and begin later this month. Starting on June 12, the public version of the online portal will give access to:

●        Exhibitor Booths – Featuring special events, VOD content and articles, exhibitor booths will act as hubs within the portal for key announcements and game information tied to each exhibitor

●        Lounges – Online gathering spots for all E3 attendees

●        Forums – Special boards for focused online discussion and sharing among attendees

●        Leaderboards – Gamified show elements that can be collected and displayed, encouraging fans to interact in as many ways as possible

●        Profile Creation – All attendees can create their own unique profiles within the portal and app, which can be customized

The online portal and app will also feature the E3 live broadcast with interactive overlays powered by Hovercast. The graphics will be interactive across platforms, including viewer polls, featured tweets, and more. The broadcast will be hosted by Alex “Goldenboy” Mendez, Jacki Jing and Greg Miller and feature major publisher showcases, press conferences, industry panels, extended livestreams and special guest appearances.

The week before June 12, a five-day long media week will utilize the online portal and app to help media gain early access to connect directly with E3 exhibitors.  An online calendar tool will allow for scheduling appointments, while also including video conferencing and chat features as needed. Media registration and credentialing will begin later this month.

Be sure to go to the E3 Website to subscribe to the mailing list to access the portal as soon as it’s available.
