A week’s worth of live online programming will kick off on June 10th and run until June 15th. Shows will broadcast directly from the expo floor and from IGN’s LA Studio.

The schedule includes the big press briefings from Sony, Microsoft, EA and Ubisoft, along with pre and post show commentary. Also planned are live interviews and eSports competitions.

Being on Twitter, IGN will also incorporate Twitter polling and live Q&A questioning.

"Our gaming audience turns to Twitter every year to discuss what’s happening at E3," Twitter COO Anthony Noto said. "We are excited to partner with IGN, an industry leader in gaming coverage, on these unique broadcasts that will bring live video and the related conversation all to Twitter."

With jaw-dropping announcements and new game reveals, Twitter is the perfect livestream partner and platform given our global audience and their passion to be part of the conversation. Gamers around the world are going to be the real winners thanks to our partnership.”
