How to watch E3 2021

E3 2021 is finally here. After being canceled last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, E3 is back for 2021 in an all-digital format, and it kicked off on June 12th.

There’s been a lot of great announcements so far, including a trailer and release date for the highly-anticipated Elden Ring, a trailer for Ubisoft’s gorgeous Avatar game, a release date for Microsoft and Bethesda’s Starfield, and even the reveal of a chaos-filled and action-heavy Final Fantasy spinoff. But there are still two days of E3 left, with Capcom’s presentation on Monday and Tuesday’s Nintendo Direct to look forward to, among other shows.

If you want to attend the virtual E3 as a fan, you can register to attend on E3’s website. (I will warn you from personal experience that the E3 portal and website are pretty bad.) If you just want to follow along with the press conferences and announcements, though, we’ve put together a timeline of some of the biggest events to look forward to below. And if you want to catch up on what’s already been announced, we’ve got you covered there, too.
