E3 Begins: Big News, Never-Before-Seen Demos, Massive Giveaways

by Keoki Young

Never before seen games. The latest gear. Huge giveaways. The Electronic Entertainment Expo kicking off this weekend in Los Angeles promises to be our most raucous yet.

NVIDIA GeForce is driving demos of the latest unreleased games running on the very latest gear in our booth — and around the show — from scores of partners.

Where the Action Is

Our E3 booth will be stocked with the latest games — including an early look at Destiny 2 — running on the latest gear.

Attendees will be able to get hands-on with 40 PCs running Destiny 2’s all new story campaign running on 4K NVIDIA G-SYNC displays and GeForce GTX 1080 Ti GPUs.

The 4K story spills over to our SHIELD streaming media device, as well, where we’ll be featuring Agents of Mayhem streaming to SHIELD in 4K with NVIDIA GameStream.

Or strap on a headset and experience the latest VR games, such as 4A Games’ Arktika.1 and Ubisoft’s Star Trek: Bridge Crew with Watson voice commands in VR.

In addition, we’ll be offering gamers a first chance to play unreleased demos of Agents of Mayhem, Absolver, Raiders of the Broken Planet, Project Cars 2, Strange Brigade and Conqueror’s Blade.

These games will be running on the latest technology, including new gear just announced at Computex, such as notebooks featuring our new Max-Q design and new G-SYNC HDR monitors.

All Over the Show Floor

Of course, our gear will be powering demos throughout E3, both on and off the show floor.

The list of game publishers and gear makers we’re partnering with at E3 includes Activision, Dell / Alienware, Devolver, Electronic Arts, Epic Games, Focus Home Interactive, Indie Megabooth, Konami Digital Entertainment, Microsoft, Netease, Nexon, Razer, Rebellion, Survios, THQ Nordic, Ubisoft, Warner Bros and many more.

There really is no escape. But, considering this is E3, why would you want to?
