Nintendo's E3 details have been revealed, so now we know exactly when we'll hear about the company's slate. Nintendo's pre-taped briefing will air at 9 AM Pacific on June 12. Nintendo said the focus of its E3 Direct will be games releasing soon rather than beyond 2018. So what could be shown? Some of the games we know about include a new Pokemon game, Metroid Prime 4, and a Fire Emblem title, among others.
The one game we know will appear at the show is Super Smash Bros. It's confirmed to be playable, and the Nintendo Treehouse livestream will kick off immediately following the Direct with a deep dive into the Nintendo fighting game. Nintendo at E3 headlines today's episode of GameSpot Daily, but we've also got a bunch of other stories coming at you in 30 minutes or less.
Speaking of Nintendo, we'll learn more about its upcoming online service prior to E3. What we know so far is the pricing ($20 a year) and some of the bonuses it gives players, including free games and Eshop discounts.
In other news, Shadow of the Tomb Raider's first trailer was revealed, and now we know a bit more about what to expect from the next entry in the series. It's set in South America and involves a prophecy about the end of the world and a mysterious box that evil military organization Trinity wants to get its hands on. The game itself will feature some of the largest hub areas the series has seen and new stealth opportunities. We have all that and the release date in the video above.
PUBG's latest test server update was huge, bringing a bunch of new stuff with it. A new gun, the SLR, has been added. It's a DMR stronger than the SKS but with more recoil. On top of that, a four-seat muscle car has been added to Miramar and a bunch of new attachments are now available to loot. Among those attachments are two new scopes: the 3x and 6x. The 6x is particularly notable because it lets you scroll-wheel between 3x and 6x zoom. There are also a bunch of weapon balances and other changes, all of which we get into in today's episode.
We also have stories on Grand Theft Auto IV finally removing a bunch of songs from artists such as David Bowie, Black Sabbath, and Stevie Nicks. And if you're more of a western person, then you might be interested in the release date for Wild West Online, which is a PC action MMO that evokes the themes and setting of Red Dead Redemption.
That's what you'll find in this episode, but be sure to tune in every day of the week at 11 AM PST/2 PM EST/7 PM BST/4 AM AEST for another episode of GameSpot Daily. We cover the most exciting gaming news in 30 minutes or less or Nintendo will cancel E3.
