Devolver is doing another E3 press conference and has already apologised

Indie publisher Devolver Digital is once again holding a press conference at E3.

The firm announced the event via Twitter (below), apologising in advance for the Big Fancy Press Conference. This is likely in reference to last year which was, um, an experience. The full video is at the bottom of this story.

This time around the indie publisher has promised some game reveals, something that was lacking from 2017's event. It also references blood and loss of life, which were past of last year's conference. We doubt that chief synergy officer Nina Struthers (pictured) is going to be hosting because.. well.. just watch last year's show. 

The Big Fancy Press Conference 2018 will be aired at 8pm PT (4am UK time) on June 10th (11th if you're in the UK).

"This year’s Big Fancy Press Conference will feature real, actual game reveals and technological innovations from Devolver Labs, the research and development arm of Devolver Digital responsible for last year’s Earliest Access program and making ‘throwing money at the screen’ a valid form of payment," the company wrote.

"There will almost certainly be blood, possibly loss of life.

"Potential concurrent viewers are encouraged to re-watch last year’s press conference as this year’s event aims to extend the Devolver Digital Press Conference Cinematic Universe (DDPCCU) through the blatant reuse of jokes and vague callbacks to the original."
