Good News: E3 2017 Will Be Open to the Public, So Anyone can Attend

So Long as You Buy Tickets on Time, the Biggest Gaming Event Will Be Open to You

The Entertainment Software Association (ESA) recently announced that all gamers can now gain access to E3 2017. We learn this via twitter, where the organization released an informational video. Consumer tickets will be available to anyone eager for all major entertainment and hands on-events. But prospective attendees must be aware that tickets are in short supply. No surprise as this is an event normally reserved for the devs, publishers, press, and industry persons. Additionally, you get the celebs who add a certain environmental prestige to everything. And you can now be apart of all that, so long as you obtain your passes on February 12 ET, when they go on sale.

As a result of this announcement, we may see E3 as more of a showcase and play expo. Devs have recently taken to announcing new IPs outside the Los Angeles-based event. But that’s not to say there won’t be tons of new announcements. Scorpio is expected to drop all its juicy details, along with the unveiling of some first-party Xbox exclusives. Just as likely, we’ll see some new projects from Sony.

But as stated, some publishers like EA have reserved news for elsewhere. This year they are holding a major press conference just before the main course. Their event, EA Play, will likely reveal some new games and content while leaving the details for E3. All the while, E3 remains the biggest expo for other new titles and updates deals on the most anticipated names. So check your hype.
