Activision teases “special Crash announcement” for E3 2017 [Update]

Call of Duty: WWII and Destiny 2 will also be there.

Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy

Activision has announced its E3 2017 lineup, confirming Call of Duty: WWII, Destiny 2, and Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy as the three titles it is bringing to the show floor.

Among the lineup details, Activision teases, “be sure to keep your eyes peeled for a special Crash announcement during E3!”

Here’s the full rundown of everything Activision at E3 2017:

Call of Duty: WWII

Call of Duty returns to its roots with the highly anticipated Call of Duty: WWII developed by Sledgehammer Games. E3 will offer hands-on with the game for the very first time, including a first look at Divisions, a fundamentally new way to focus on your multiplayer career. Players will join one of five iconic World War II Divisions, each with their own unique weapons and abilities.

  • Airborne: First to the fight, where you move fast and stay quiet
  • Mountain: Focusing on precise and deadly sharpshooting
  • Infantry: Be the tip of the spear
  • Armored: Bringing the heaviest firepower
  • Expeditionary Force: Packing heat with incendiary shells

In addition to the traditional Multiplayer, players will also be treated to the brand-new War Mode, developed in partnership with Raven Software. War Mode is an all-new game mode where players must work as a team to defeat the enemy. This narrative-driven Multiplayer experience immerses players in iconic World War II locations. Allied and Axis forces clash in team-driven assault and defend missions for key strategic objectives, bringing an entirely new dynamic to Call of Duty.

Players will also experience Headquarters, a franchise first, all new off-the-frontlines experience for Call of Duty fans. Players will compete, earn rewards, show off their accomplishments, and connect with friends. Unlike anything experienced in Call of Duty to date, Headquarters transforms the Multiplayer experience by redefining how players engage with the game and with each other.

Call of Duty: WWII is available for preorder now, and look for special announcements about the upcoming Private Beta during E3.

Call of Duty: WWII Multiplayer will be playable on PlayStation 4 consoles at both the Activision Booth (South Hall #1001) and the PlayStation Booth (West Hall #4322).

Destiny 2

Following the epic reveal of the global Destiny 2 Gameplay Premiere last month, Activision and Bungie will showcase Destiny 2 with an array of hands-on experiences for E3 audiences as they play the all-new story campaign and the competitive and cooperative multiplayer gameplay with fellow Guardians.

Additionally, E3 will showcase the debut of a brand-new Guardian subclass, the Arcstrider Hunter. Wielding a new super ability that allows them to summon an Arc-empowered staff for close-quarters melee combat, the Arcstrider Hunter will be playable for the first time at E3.

Destiny 2 is available for preorder now, and look for announcements about the Destiny 2 Open Beta during E3.

Destiny 2 will be playable on PS4 Pro consoles at the Activision Booth (South Hall #1001) and the PlayStation Booth (West Hall #4322), as well as on PC at the NVIDIA Booth (West Hall #5230).

Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy

We’re rolling out the orange carpet (literally!) to bring the Crash N. Sane Experience to E3 attendees in the South Hall Lobby where players will be able to get their hands on the retro-tastic and remastered Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy. Word is that Crash Bandicoot himself will be there, ready and waiting for you to take a selfie with him and populate your social media channels.

The Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy is available for preorder now, and be sure to keep your eyes peeled for a special Crash announcement during E3!

The Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy will be playable at the Crash N. Sane Experience in the South Hall Lobby. Just look for the orange carpet!

E3 2017 runs from June 13 to 15.

Update 06/09/17 at 4:08 p.m.: The official Crash Bandicoot account tweeted today, “ProTip: We suggest tuning in right at 5pm PT sharp,” which was in response to a tweet from PlayStation regarding its E3 2017 press conference. It is uncertain whether something will be announced during the Sony press conference pre-show, or during the actual conference, which starts at 6:00 p.m. PT on June 12, given the fact that PlayStation’s tweet gives the impression that the press conference starts at 5:00 p.m.
