This is how E3 2021’s online portal and applications (including its virtual exhibitor booths) will work


As we all know, E3 will come out in 2021, but it will use a new digital format. With publishers, developers and presenters all remotely showcasing new games of the year, the event hopes to enable fans to participate more than ever by providing interactive online portals and special applications.

Today, ESA has revealed how these will work. It is said that the online portal is “the destination of E3 everything” and will be accessible to the public on Saturday, June 12th (Saturday) after the press release period. It will accommodate virtual “booths”, profile and avatar creation, online forums, etc.

The process of registering for free access to this online portal will begin later this month. From June 12, the public version of the portal will give you access to the following:

●Exhibitor Booth-Contains special events, VOD content and articles. The exhibitor booth will act as the hub of the portal for publishing important announcements and game information related to each exhibitor

●Lounge – an online meeting place for all E3 participants

●Forum-a special committee dedicated to online discussion and sharing with participants

●Leader Banner – Gamified display elements can be collected and displayed, encouraging fans to interact in as many ways as possible

●Profile creation-all attendees can create their own unique profile in the portal and application, which can be customized

The portal and application will also feature E3’s real-time broadcast, and even have real-time interactive elements, such as audience polls, selected tweets, and more. The host of the show-who only showed up last month-will lead the audience into “main distributor shows, press conferences, industry symposiums, more live broadcasts and special guest attendance”.

ESA President and CEO Stanley Pierre-Louis said: “From the moment we decided to virtual host E3, we have been committed to providing fans around the world with an interactive experience that goes beyond the regular live broadcast.” “The result is a customized online Portals and applications, which will enable fans, media and industry professionals to have an E3 experience designed to run in parallel with the four-day broadcast, laying the foundation for interactive E3 elements to continue beyond this year’s full virtualization performance.”
