This weekend marks the return of Sony’s annual PlayStation Experience event, bringing together fans, developers and publishers to celebrate all things PlayStation. From December 9th to 10th, fans will be able to demo dozens of games, attend panels featuring illustrious developers, and collect all kinds of swag.
For those who can’t make the California-based event, there are also exclusive new reveals of upcoming games for everyone to enjoy.
However, Sony has opted to not hold a traditional keynote presentation this year as in previous year. Instead, the publishing giant is holding a smaller presentation tonight that promises to offer “updates on key titles” and “some special announcements.”
The “PlayStation Presents” presentation will go live at 8pm PT/11pm ET and can be viewed on PlayStation’s official livestream site, Facebook, Twitch and YouTube channels. It’s worth noting that PlayStation promises that those tuning into the above live.playstation site can “earn rewards,” although it’s currently unclear what those may be.
In addition to PlayStation Presents, the following six panels will also be streamed on the live.playstation site, Facebook, Twitch and YouTube channels:
