E3 2019 last edited by Marino on 06/26/19 07:40PM View full history

Overview

For the third year in a row, the ESA opened E3 registration to the public. Starting on February 2019, anyone could register for a "Gamer Pass" at a price of $249 USD. After a mixed reaction to allowing the public into the expo in 2017, changes were made to the schedule for 2018. Those changes remain for 2019. On the first two days of E3, industry professionals are given three hours on the floor before the public is allowed inside.

Game Critic Awards

No Caption Provided

The Game Critics Awards are decided by an independent group of worldwide media outlets. They have selected the most promising games of each Electronic Entertainment Expo since 1998, and have thus become recognized as the most respected "Best of" awards that come out of the annual show. Games qualify for nomination by having hands-on playable versions of the game at the show.

The Outer Worlds came away with the most nominations (4), while Xbox Game Studios was the publisher with the most nominations (9).
