The annual E3 event is set to take place in nearly one week and we’re beginning to receive the schedules for all confirmed presentations for the expo. While plenty of publishers will have their hands full during their own conferences and presentations, the three day long E3 Coliseum event will hold plenty of other exciting panels and conversations that will feature tons of updates on current titles, and even a few surprise reveals along the way.
The schedule for E3 Coliseum has recently been unveiled and with it comes a flurry of exciting talking points.
