It’s every gamer’s dream. E3 public tickets will be available for the first time in the expo’s existence. Put your finger on F5 because we think these will sell out fast.
The Entertainment Software Association, which organizes the event, announced today that 15,000 tickets will be available to purchase on Monday, February 13. Gamespot reports that the tickets will be priced at $250, but if you purchase the ticket on Monday, you’ll receive an early bird discount of $150. Attendees will have access to the show floor, panel discussions, and other events from Tuesday through Thursday of E3 week. Full details on E3 2017’s new public plans will come in the following weeks.
Requests have E3 public tickets have been around for years. Last year, the ESA experimented with E3 Live, which was free and open to the public. This even was a smaller-scale place where attendees could play upcoming games and take part in other events.
“The feedback we heard was clear–they wanted to play the games inside the convention center,” said senior VP of communications Rich Taylor in a statement to Gamespot. “In addition, exhibitors inside the convention center wanted to have access to the fans. So this year we’re bringing the two together.”
