Devolver E3 2021 Press Conference: How To Watch
Devolver will once again have an E3 livestream; here's what you need to know.
E3 2021 is coming up very soon, and arguably already started with Summer Game Fest. One publisher holding its own show is Devolver Digital, the eccentric company focused on releasing what may otherwise be considered "indie" games. Coming on June 12, the stream will no doubt feature some game announcements, but Devolver's shows are a little bit less... sensical than those from other companies. That certainly appears to be the case based on a teaser trailer of sorts that Devolver has released, dubbed the Devolver MaxPass+ Prologue. You can watch the video below, but it teases that the MaxPass+ will be revealed during Saturday's event as "the future of monetization as a service," whatever that means. We expect at least a few deaths.
Devolver Press Conference Stream Time
In May, Devolver put out a vague tweet stating that it had made plans for E3 and that it would do something "probably" on June 12. June 12 is the first day of E3 2021's digital show, and we now know that Devolver's presentation will officially take place at 1:30 PM PT / 4:30 PM PT on that day. It's not officially part of E3 itself.
- 1:30 PM PT
- 4:30 PM PT
- 9:30 PM BST
- 6:30 AM AET on June 13.
This is a familiar Devolver move; back in pre-pandemic times when E3 was held in-person, the company would set up an area in a parking lot across from the LA Convention Center. Devolver's partner developers would show off their in-progress games to media, generally in camper trailers.
Devolver has also announced that it will be participating in the Geoff Keighley-hosted Summer Games Fest, which is scheduled for June 10. There, the company will reveal four new games.

What To Expect
This is Devolver we're talking about, so you can bet on there being a strong helping of absurdity and spectacle in whatever the company ends up doing. If you haven't been exposed to Devolver E3 ridiculousness before, definitely take a look at last year's press conference in the video below. Let's hope for the return of the over-the-top fictional gaming executive Nina Struthers (played by actress Mahria Zook) this year.
In terms of games, Devolver has shared some details about what its plans are for 2021. It is publishing Shadow Warrior 3, Boomerang X, and Phantom Abyss this year, among other titles that are in the works. In addition, the company has said that it is publishing a number of unannounced games. On Twitter, Devolver stated that these include "a weird F2P mobile game later this year. Maybe two."
Devolver is just one of many companies holding events during E3 2021. For more information about the rest of E3, be sure to check out our roundup of all the E3 2021 livestreams that are currently scheduled.
