PlayStation at E3 2018: The Journey Begins June 11 at 6:00pm Pacific

A special preview of what you can expect from PlayStation’s E3 2018 Showcase.

Shawn Layden's Avatar Posted by Chairman, SIE Worldwide Studios

It’s been an exceptional year for games, thanks to genre-defining masterworks like A Way Out, Far Cry 5, God of War, Monster Hunter: World, and Moss.

But 2018 is just getting started. To ring in a new year of incredible new gaming experiences, the PlayStation team is planning a new E3 Showcase — and we’re inviting all of our closest friends. That means you!

Join us on Monday, June 11 starting at 6:00pm Pacific Time as we share a preview of what’s next for PlayStation. We’ll broadcast the show live from E3 2018 in Los Angeles, California via live.playstation.com, Twitch, YouTube, and Facebook.

In a rare break from tradition, we wanted to give you an early glimpse at what to expect heading into the Showcase on June 11. PlayStation’s Worldwide Studios will be at E3 in full force to provide you with an exclusive look at four upcoming titles: Death Stranding from Kojima Productions, Ghost of Tsushima from Sucker Punch, Marvel’s Spider-Man from Insomniac Games, and The Last of Us Part II from Naughty Dog.

Of course, we’ll have stellar announcements from third-party publishers and independent developers, who are all busy devising innovative new experiences that will make your heart race and your emotions soar — whether you’re playing on PS4, PS4 Pro, or PS VR.

Stay tuned to PlayStation.Blog to learn a bit more about what’s in store as we count down to June 11, 2018 and another exciting E3 season.

Our journey begins Monday, June 11 starting at 6:00pm Pacific time. Will you join us?

    Any response yet on the opporunity to watch at local Cineplex Cinemas across the country, get the collector playing card for E32018 and virtual loot bag? Would be great to see this again. Really enjoyed the VR demo setup at Chinook centre in Calgary as well!!!

    Colbycav23 I also enjoyed it at Chinook. I’m really hoping it comes back. It was great to see it and Tool in the same night.

Are they going to do that thing where we can watch it from a movie theater again this year?

NextGenGamer2008 said:

First question after reading this: will you continue the recent tradition of hosting the PlayStation E3 Showcase in various movie theaters around the country??? I went to it last June in Bozeman, MT and it was incredible to see everything on a giant 4K screen screen with the insane surround sound pumping through theater. Definitely a huge step up from watching it at home, and the best part was the whole thing was FREE !!! :)

    nucliosis said:

    May 11th, 7:11 am

    Yeah, i would want to experience the Theater Stream as well. In 4K? That sounds really cool with the surround sound.

    NO_FEAR said:

    May 11th, 8:59 am

    I’m looking forward to the theater as well. We had a blast last year with friends! I’ve been to the main event a few times, it’s like a live sports or concert event where watching a broadcast is typically better.

paulogy said:

May 11th, 7:09 am

Looking forward to it Shawn! :-)

nucliosis said:

May 11th, 7:09 am

I’ve never been to a theater stream of E3.
That would be pretty cool to do it though.
Please open some theaters up Sony.

UghRochester said:

May 11th, 7:12 am

Glad Sony will be attending E3 again this year. I was getting a little concerned since it’s May and the announcement came one month away. Looking forward to watching the stream. Here’s hoping I can watch the stream of the press conference at another E3 Experience.

thedigitaldevil said:

May 11th, 7:12 am

Hoping to see it in the theater again.

aud10cha0s said:

May 11th, 7:14 am

We will see Shenmue?

AcEdYaBoOtAy said:

Will there be another E3 Experience this year?!?

YoungBlaise said:

May 11th, 7:18 am

“whether you’re playing on PS4, PS4 Pro, or PS VR.”
Never forget PS Vita ❤ playing it to this day. Freedom Wars 3? I wonder if more PS3 games could run on it like Infamous. Anyway I’m excited. I’ll be busy Monday night so I’ll have to be media silent until after I watch and archive. Will that be made available on your YouTube channel?

    bertraar2 said:

    May 11th, 8:56 am

    You should really look at getting a Switch. The Vita is basically dead and I feel Sony deserves it. Switch is amazing!!

AmericanSamurai1 said:

May 11th, 7:20 am

Will the presentation be like a regular e3 or last years ps experience? Also will there be a pre show with a bunch of announcements?

cusman said:

May 11th, 7:25 am

I am hoping to see Arrowhead Game Studios new game get revealed at E3 2018.

Is shadow of the tomb raider will be on E3 this June 11, 2018 this is my Question ???????
I hope they show some gameplay on shadow of the tomb raider and I pre order this game already on PlayStation store I just pre order last week shadow of the tomb raider croft Edition

    halo101 said:

    May 11th, 7:40 am

    THAT’s gonna be shown at Microsoft’s conference like the last 2 games.

vectorman88 said:

May 11th, 7:48 am

I have to ask this, but what are your plans for the PlayStation Vita this E3? Can you hint at anything? New games? A successor? New Hardware?

And will you be streaming this event in movie theaters again? That was a lot of fun and a huge success in my area!

    dkarlowicz10 said:

    May 11th, 8:10 am

    Well, that is an easy answer: nothing for Vita. My Vita has been gathering dust for a year now.

    Jawnuhthun said:

    May 11th, 8:40 am

    Vita is pretty much dead. They’re even going so far as to drop Plus freebies next year.

    Not that they gave it much support outside of Japan so begin with…

    vectorman88 said:

    May 11th, 9:15 am

    It ain’t over until it is over. THey may be dropping freebies next year, but that doesn’t mean that handheld support or a successor have been ruled out. Sorry to hear your handheld collecting dust, because this is handheld is really an 8th wonder of the world. I play it daily and there are A TON of great games for the device. Plus, it’s great for collectors.

    iamtylerdurden1 said:

    May 11th, 2:23 pm

    I use my VITA daily. The library of games is fantastic, i just platinumed God of War 2 on VITA in preparation for the new GoW. I’m currently playing MGS3 on VITA in preparation for Death Stranding. After i platinumed R&C PS4 i decided to playing Going Commando on VITA. Where else can u play these legendary games on the go?

    Oh by the way there are still good games coming to VITA like Iconoclasts just released, A Rose in the Twilight. Darkest Dungeon isn’t too old and Bloodstained is on the way. Have u played Salt n Sanctuary, Axiom Verge, Severed, Bastion, Slain, Rocket Birds 2, RE Revelations 2, World of Final Fantasy, Dragon Quest Builders on VITA yet? They aren’t that old. I’m sure there are great VITA games u haven’t touched.

Please don’t use Gabofo again for the E3 Theatre Experience tickets.

    Spacerac said:

    May 11th, 12:36 pm

    Gofobo. But agreed.

    TameImpala007 said:

    May 16th, 3:43 pm

    god that was a cluster last year. idk why they can’t just use eventbrite like a normal person.

FilmMagician said:

May 11th, 7:55 am

Sooooo just nothing about Days Gone, huh? Great.

    thenthomwaslike said:

    May 11th, 8:40 am

    The first hour of the game just got posted to gameinformer

dkarlowicz10 said:

May 11th, 8:08 am

Would love a PS4 portable that plays digital copies (no disc, just digital ). Remote play just doesn’t work well outside the house

Cloud__Rulez said:

May 11th, 8:17 am

Is it gonna be an actual press conference longer then an hour, with devs on stage showing gameplay and explaining some things? or is it gonna be like last year and we watch one hour of trailers and whatever, then Shawn comes back on stage and … “bye”…?

    hch4nerds said:

    May 12th, 2:48 pm

    maybe im just strange, but i like alot of cinematic trailers, especially at big press conference( for new games- if i see another last of us cinematic, imma be mad). I can be so much more hype over a cinematic than i can by gameplay. Also, gameplay kinda spoils the suprise that sokme games bring. I don’t want to know every in and out of a game 4 months before it’s release.

BLite said:

May 11th, 8:23 am

@Cloud_Rulez – Thank you for being the only person who noticed this. I was dumbfounded by the approach Sony took last year (and will probably take again this year). Came back here after watching it and all the comments were just glowing. I think it’s a huge mistake to turn an opportunity to “work the crowd” into just a bunch of pre-recorded commercials.

    iamtylerdurden1 said:

    May 11th, 2:29 pm

    How did u feel about the previous year’s E3 when Sony opened with an orchestra playing the new God of War theme leading into an explosive demo? Or the E3 when they announced Last Guardian, Shenmue, and FFVII? Sony typically owns E3, i wouldn’t worry.

thenthomwaslike said:

May 11th, 8:35 am

I’m really nervous about this format. It reminds me of what ea did when it had nothing to show, and last year’s psx which was okay. We want a shotgun blast if game announcements, a few longer demos but no deep dives. I don’t want spoilies!

Diunisius said:

May 11th, 8:44 am

Add in post the event calendar link? So we can add to calendars directly.

cmdluke said:

May 11th, 8:45 am

I dig the new direction. Last year really didn’t work for me even being in the live audience. The rapid fire trailer format really only works if you have major new announcements.

RealSolidSnake said:

May 11th, 8:50 am

People are confused, gaming websites are confused, please tell us straight, is there an E3 press conference happening this year or not?

    Sygmaier said:

    May 11th, 1:34 pm

    It would be a shame if it takes a similar approach to last PSX.

norm01 said:

May 11th, 8:56 am

Those 4 games… it’s like having 4 Aces in your hand. Boom, boom, boom and…boom!

erlycon78 said:

May 11th, 9:25 am

Hoping for another theater experience this year! My friends and I have gone the past 2 years and have had an amazing time with all the other PlayStation nation members. I especially love it when the whole theater loses their minds as the announcements roll out! Thank you for the good times and fingers crossed we get to do it again!

bkboy534 said:

May 11th, 9:35 am

Seriously are we going to get the movie theater show again with the gifts and stuff i did it last two years and loved it meet lots of gamers and make new friends and tge whole thing is just awesome and great for sony to show appreciation for their customers

omegazio said:

May 11th, 9:45 am

I can’t wait for E3 2018!

TheTheDoctorWho8 said:

Wait, where’s Medievil??!

PABLOMAN44 said:

May 11th, 9:58 am

I would really love to have the whole theater experience again! It has become a tradition. Made some friends who enjoy gaming like I do!

Valyrious said:

Devil May Cry V will be at Sony’s conference. Book it.

GoldRokaku said:

May 11th, 11:40 am

Any chance we will be able to watch via a PSVR Stream? Would love to sit in the front row and watch through my headset. ✌️

danjin44 said:

May 11th, 11:46 am

Give me new game from Yoko Taro and I would be very happy.

fuzion122 said:

May 11th, 12:28 pm

Will there be news about PS5? Or a new version of the PS4 (like the pro but better)

Spacerac said:

May 11th, 12:35 pm

Patience guys, previous trends suggest they will announce the theaters for this year at the end of this month! I really hope they do it again this year despite the mess with Gofobo last year. Hopefully they switch back to Eventgrid!

    ErrWrx said:

    May 11th, 1:14 pm

    Eventgrid handled it so well. Gofobo literally broke under all the traffic for like 2 days for some ppl.

Toe_Tag_ said:

May 11th, 12:45 pm

Since there won’t be a Socom announcement I’ll pass. I’ll just keep waiting.

ErrWrx said:

May 11th, 1:12 pm

The experience last year at theaters was amazing. The experience to experience the experience was a bag of dicks. Please don’t put the tickets through gofobo this year. Go back to where you used to offer them or at least through a vendor that can handle the traffic on their site.

Are you going to talk about h1z1

MrM3lee89 said:

May 11th, 2:25 pm

Please tell me Sony that you are seeing all the requests for bringing E3 to local theaters again! I loved last years! It’s the closest thing a 29 yr old father of two, Ohioian has to going to E3 IRL lol. Please bring back “Experience E3 2018”!!!

iamtylerdurden1 said:

May 11th, 2:35 pm

Hope Insomniac announces a Resistance reboot and i hope GG second team has a new Killzone but i doubt it. At least we should see Death Stranding and Tsushima gameplay as well as an extensive TLoU 2 demo. I expect the From Soft game to get announced.

    hawktooey said:

    May 15th, 7:23 pm

    I’d take a vr compatible remaster of the resistance trilogy.

colbycav23 said:

May 11th, 2:36 pm

Any response yet on the opportunity to watch at local Cineplex Cinemas across the country, get the collector playing card for E32018 and virtual loot bag? Would be great to see this again. Really enjoyed the VR demo setup at Chinook Centre in Calgary as well!!!

Thanks and looking forward to UPDATE for all.

Can’t wait for Spiderman and Ghost Of Tsushima! And all the other game announcements of course! <3

JSmash7 said:

May 11th, 4:14 pm

Please tell me you are still doing the PlayStation theater experience. Iv’e gone every year since it’s been available, and I’ve made a tradition with friends and family.

Can PlayStation plz put PUBG on ps4

ThaiChi said:

May 11th, 4:51 pm

I really hope the show isn’t like last year. I absolutely love the show presentation when we have an Mc like Jack Tretton or Andy House. I loved that Sony absolutely worked their asses off to catch up when they were behind in the last generation and don’t want them to think we don’t need hype building they do when they’re now back on top. E3 2015 was absolutely legendary, and we need more moments like that, not just an hour of playing trailers with half assed introductions for them in between. Sony’s presentation is mainly the only thing I look forward to for e3. I don’t know if they held back because it was public, but I guess public e3 is going to continue. If that’s the reason, at least give us back a real keynote for PSX.

Genesis_Geass719 said:

May 11th, 5:16 pm

Extremely pumped about e3 2018 Sony show us how you blow the competition away! Also lets bring the theater show back again for another great year!!!

BX_MACHETE said:

May 11th, 5:42 pm

Can you please give us notice as to when we can sign up for tickets to watch at the theater i had a blast last year at nyc watching with my fellow gamers nerding out lol please give us notice I don’t wanna end up on waiting list again please and thanks… and whats up with a vita2 with some blockbuster games lol
