With E3 2018 only a few weeks away, we already have the confirmation of some of the biggest names in gaming press conferences. However, with the announcement of another event, it seems like this year’s convention is getting bigger and bigger as June approaches. Recently, indie game publisher Devolver Digital confirmed that they would be making a return to E3 this year. The company’s “Big Fancy Press Conference” will be held on June 10 at 8 PM PT.
“This year’s Big Fancy Press Conference will feature real, actual game reveals and technological innovations from Developer Labs, the research and development arm of Devolver Digital responsible for last year’s Earliest Access program and making ‘throwing money at the screen’ a valid form of payment. There will almost certainly be blood, possibly loss of life.” The event is set to be taking place live at the Dave Lang Memorial Convention Center which isn’t actually a real venue. It will also be live streamed on Twitch for those interested in seeing the spectacle that Devolver has in store.
The company also describes this year conference as a “dumpster fire” and urges people to watch their press conference from last year’s E3 in order to catch up on the “Devolver Digital Press Conference Universe (DDPCCU) through the blatant reuse of jokes and vague callbacks to the original. Pray for us.” Last month, publisher THQ Nordic stated that they will be skipping out on E3 this year in favor to drink beer and watch the 2018 FIFA World Cup. However they did state that they would be specifically looking forward to watching Devolver’s press conference this year. Last year’s conference was quite interesting to say the least, and Devolver Digital has already apologized in advance for what we may see this year.
