Geoff Keighley is returning to E3 with YouTube this year, and he’s bringing along some special guests — including Tyler “Ninja” Blevins.
It’s not surprising that Blevins, the biggest name in gaming this year, will appear at E3. He’s also registered to compete in Epic Games’ massive, 50-team celebrity Fortnite tournament on June 12. Blevins will join Keighley on YouTube’s “Live at E3” couch prior to jumping into that tournament, though. Blevins will appear on the livestream on Monday, June 11, according to a press release, where he’ll be handed YouTube’s diamond plaque for hitting a 10 million subscribers milestone. Blevins currently has more than 12 million subscribers on YouTube.
Marshmello, a popular DJ, Fortnite player and Blevins’ friend, will also appear on the show for a Let’s Play event. The segment will also host Marshmello’s debut of his newest track, “Tell Me.” The DJ, who has steadily grown a name for himself in the gaming sphere, will launch a dedicated Let’s Play channel this month, and partner with YouTube’s top personalities for videos.
Since this is a YouTube event, there are a number of other creators expected to appear during the two-day stream: Ali-A, AngryJoe, Boogie2988, iJustine, MatPat, TypicalGamer and Vikkstar are some of the creators being announced today, but more guests are expected to show up, according to the press release.
YouTube’s “Live at E3” will also simulcast E3’s biggest press conferences, much like last year. Xbox, PlayStation, Bethesda and Ubisoft’s press conferences will all be available to watch through YouTube, but they’ll also be available to stream through Twitch.
YouTube’s full livestream schedule can be read below:
June 10: Stream kicks off at 3 p.m. ET. The stream will feature “Xbox E3 Briefing and Bethesda’s E3 Showcase.”
