E3 2019: Events & press conferences and how you can attend them

Da dieser Beitrag an das internationale E3 Publikum gerichtet ist, ist er ausnahmsweise mal auf Englisch.

The E3 2019 is only two months away and we already got a lot of info about the events, press conferences and showcases. If you are in LA during this time, you might want to attend this events which you’ve only seen in streams so far. Here are all the E3 events and shows and how you can attend them.

Update June 1st: Added more info for other press conferences.

Update April 27th: The first draw of Xbox FanFest tickets did already happen. Also, Bethesda sent out a first batch of invites for their showcase.

The best thing about a big game show like E3 or gamescom isn’t usually the show itself, it’s the events that happen around it. Events which are more exclusive and not as crowded. A lot of them usually don’t require more than a registration beforehand. And you won’t even need an E3 ticket to attend the press conferences and shows (if they offer access for fans, but keep reading).

All times are in 24h format and PDT
List will be updated when new info is available
