Leaks and rumors are running rampant at the moment, and we're just hours away from hearing the truth for the next year of gaming.

There's going to be five massive conferences tonight which will act as the pre-reveal to the rest of E3, check out the details below...

Microsoft (17:30 - 19:00 GMT / 09:30 - 11:00 PST)


Of course Microsoft will be present, starting off the conferences on the back foot as they try and regain lost devotion from their fans. We've heard that Microsoft will be showcasing (at least) 20 upcoming games, probably including:

Call of Duty: Ghosts

Titanfall

Forza Motorsport 5

Fable

Halo sequel

Of course, there will almost certainly be some Xbox One damage control done as well.

You can watch the Microsoft conference stream here.

 

Electronic Arts (21:00 – 22:00 GMT / 13:00 - 14:00 PST)

Electronic Arts is also a big publisher to be reckoned with, with some of the strongest titles this E3 under their name. Some expected titles to be showcased at the conference are:

Battlefield 4

Need for Speed

Command & Conquer 

EA sports (Fifa? NBA?)

TitanFall

Dragon Age: Inquisition


Respawn Entertainment's TitanFall is published by EA, and because it will only appear on the Xbox and PC, it would be no surprise to see the game at both EA's and Microsoft's conferences.

You can watch the Electronic Arts conference stream here.

 

Ubisoft (23:00 - 0:00 GMT / 15:00 - 16:00 PST)

Just a couple small games that you've probably never heard of will be showed off at the conference:

Assassins Creed IV: Black Flag

Watch Dogs

Splinter Cell: Blacklist

Rayman Legends


It is also assumed new IP's will be revealed at the conference. All in all, Ubisoft holds some of the most anticipated titles; enough reason to tune in.

Sony (02:00 GMT / 18:00 PST)

Sony will be rounding up the night, and have the upside of showing themselves at US Prime time, although Europe will have to wait until the morning to watch. Sony may be revealing some new games, but will probably be making the most of the Xbox One's bad publicity to make the PS4 look even better. Some likely reveals:

The Last Guardian

Uncharted

Yakuza 5

Final Fantasy

You can watch the Sony conference stream here.

 

Nintendo (11th June 15:00 GMT / 07:00 PST)

Nintendo will be showing their Nintendo Direct stream on Tuesday morning, before the main conference starts. Some expected games:

Pikmin 3

Mario Kart

Pokemon X & Y

Super Smash Bros.

Bayonetta 2

The Legend Of Zelda: Wind Waker HD

Mario for Wii U

Watch the Nintendo Direct here.

Ubisoft and Sony most definitely, then EA. Not bothered about Nintendo and I'm surprised people have even voted for Microsoft.

Nope, they are known to not release (much) information regarding GTA on events such as E3. Perhaps they will appear on lets say Microsoft's conference though, you never know..

UBISOFT without a doubt. I LOVE the Assassin's Creed series but I think Watch_Dogs will be game of the year, and possibly one of the best ever. I'm also probably going to pre-order Splinter Cell: Blacklist which I think is looking pretty good.

Can't wait for Watch Dogs, I am more excited for that game then GTA 5, sinds the lack of excitement they give us.

According to polish magazine Wprost they'll be showing the game at MS's conference,just before the xbox one unveiling (it is a bit weird).
