The Electronic Entertainment Expo trade show is fast approaching, and livestreaming site Twitch plans to provide extensive video coverage of console gaming’s biggest event in the United States.
Twitch revealed that it will broadcast all of the big conferences from Sony, Microsoft, and other big publishers leading up to E3. The Amazon-owned video-streaming site also announced that it will have more than 30 different publishers and developers on its stage during the show itself. Twitch is the “official streaming partner” of E3, just like it was last year. And it has already solidified a deal to continue that partnership in 2016. This further cements Twitch’s place as one of the top destinations for gaming video in the face of competition from YouTube.
Everything Twitch does at E3 will beam directly to its Twitch E3 portal, and the action will get started on Sunday, June 14.
Here’s the schedule for the conference events:
- 3 p.m. Nintendo World Championships
- 7 p.m. Bethesda
- 9:30 a.m. Xbox
- 1 p.m. EA
- 3 p.m. Ubisoft
- 6 p.m. PlayStation
- 9 a.m. Nintendo
- 10 a.m. Square Enix
- 5 p.m. PC Gaming Show
The company also plans to announce its stage-show schedule June 9, when it will reveal when fans can catch up with their favorite game makers.
Twitch live programming director Jon Carnage explained that “with every press conference” and “every major publisher” featured on its site, they’ve “got the fans covered.”
