E3 2021 Australian Guide

All the shows, dates and attendees

E3 2021 Australian Guide

This time last year - in the midst of a global pandemic - The Entertainment Software Association made the decision to host their annual yearly showcase (E3) as an all digital, virtual event. Instead of cramming everybody into the normal three-day period, publishers took things into their own hands and hosted events all throughout the month. Now with June only a few sleeps away, the inevitable onslaught of video game news is upon us once again.
