For what it’s worth, Phantom Doctrine isn’t a new announcement. It was playable at PAX West 2017.


Oct 25, 2017
Good idea as there is definitely gonna be some news/announcements buried over others.


Oct 25, 2017
Thank you for the thread, I'll probably keep coming back to see if there were any announcements I might've missed.


Nov 23, 2017
So the countdown was to the opening of the thread? Damn it, I thought it was the beginning of E3. I'm sat here knackered from lack of sleep ...

If you haven't checked this out yet there is a great recap site for trailers at http://e3recap.com/ You can click on previous years as well to get a sense of the layout. The format is great and I love the filters you can add. I know we have this forum but for catching up on all the days trailers and press conferences this is my go to.

Edit: Here is the 2017 layout. https://2017.e3recap.com/

Thank you for keeping us updated! With the crazy amount of threads and news, it's kinda hard to keep tracks of everything and avoid missing some important news.

Curious that gameslice doesn't have an EA livestream scheduled.

Edit: Now I see Geoff on twitter saying that E3 on YouTube starts tomorrow... what happened with EA? it seems like it doesn't count as an E3 event...
