The lineup of speakers for the E3 Coliseum event at E3 2018 has been revealed, and it contains some really big names. People speaking or presenting at the three-day event include Death Stranding director Hideo Kojima, The Last of Us: Part II director Neil Druckmann, Xbox boss Phil Spencer, Bethesda executive Todd Howard, Fortnite lead Donald Mustard, and EA Star Wars creative director Amy Hennig.
You can see the full descriptions for each panel here on the Coliseum website. One of the most high-profile panels is “The Making of Fallout 76,” which will see Howard discuss the development of Bethesda’s much-anticipated upcoming game. Additionally, Howard will answer questions from the audience. This takes place at 4 PM PT / 7 PM ET on Tuesday, June 12.
Outside of gaming, the big-name guests include Requiem for a Dream director Darren Aronofsky, actor Jack Black (who will inevitably say he wants to work on another Brutal Legend), Avengers: Infinity War co-director Joe Russo, Kong: Skull Island director Jordan Vogt-Roberts, and Lord of the Rings actor Elijah Wood. Kojima and Vogt-Roberts will appear on a panel together to presumably discuss the new Metal Gear Solid movie, which Vogt-Roberts is directing.
Games like Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, Spider-Man, The Last of Us: Part II, and World of Warcraft (for some reason), and other games that get announced at E3 will also be part of the Coliseum event.
All E3 ticket-holders can get in to the talks and presentations on a first-come, first-served basis. The event is held at The Novo in LA Live, which is right next door to the Los Angeles Convention Center. The Coliseum runs June 12-14, and it is produced in partnership with E3 organizer the ESA.
The majority of the panels will be streamed on Twitch, Mixer, Twitter, and YouTube. GameSpot will have a lot of exclusive programming as well on our own stages, so keep checking back for lots more on E3 2018 in the days ahead.
