The Electronics Entertainment Expo (otherwise known as E3) is the single biggest event in the gaming calendar, and E3 2018 is shaping up to be one of the best shows yet. And, with the showfloor due to open from the 12th to the 14th of June, there’s only a few months to wait until the entire games industry gathers in Los Angeles for a slew of announcements, trailers, and unveilings.
