Today, Twitch announced that it will be the official live streaming partner of the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3). In addition to broadcasting all of the E3 2015 press conferences and being the exclusive broadcasting platform for the PC Gaming Show, more than 30 publishers and developers will be showing games on the Twitch stage, which will be at South Hall, Booth #2803. And for the first time, Twitch will have broadcasting partners from several countries providing localized content from the Twitch booth.
One of the coolest things that Twitch is doing is they are allowing Twitch broadcasters co-stream all of the Twitch E3 content on twitch.tv/twitch to their own channels. With this, they are granted the ability to give their own commentary with the news that’ll be pouring out that week, and it gives them the opportunity to create a more personalized, social experience for their communities.
As part of the E3 experience, Twitch is bringing back its Day 0 live broadcast on June 15 from 9:00am to 7:30pm PDT. Named for the day prior to the official start of E3, Day 0 will include all of the press conferences combined with exclusive game and gameplay reveals, appearances by major publishers and developers, and so much more.
From June 15-18, Twitch will broadcast from its stage with on-staff hosts Jon Carnage, Marcus “djWHEAT” Graham, and Jordan “Soma” Tayer, along with guest hosts MANvsGAME, Ezekiel_III, Swiftor, Seltzer, Anna Prosser, and djminiWHEAT. These guys will be talking to top publishers, developers and the Twitch community while showcasing all of the latest games. Along with the English broadcast, popular partnered channels from several countries will be doing regionalized shows from the Twitch booth, which includes a German presentation from Rocket Beans TV and a French presentation from Jeuxvideo.
It’s safe to say that E3 is the biggest event for video games, so with publishers, expect to see 2K, Activision, BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment America, Blizzard, Deep Silver, Devolver, Disney Interactive, EA, Konami, Microsoft Studios, Nintendo, PlayStation, Reverb, Square Enix, Tiny Build Games, Ubisoft, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, and many more, including an array of content from the Indie Megabooth.
All of the press events and booth broadcasts will be viewable from the Twitch E3 Portal.
