E3 2017 marks the first year that the annual games expo is fully open to the public. With 15,000 fans in attendance, the Entertainment Software Association — the organizers of E3 — wants to add a level of fan engagement to the expo. That is where E3 Coliseum comes in. On June 13 and 14 at The Novo in Los Angeles, fans will get to experience a series of panels, conversations, and sneak peeks about new and upcoming games. There are also expected performances, exclusive demos, and special guests. Fans will be able to interact with industry leaders during Q&A sessions as well. Sounds pretty neat, right? Thankfully, if you aren’t able to be there in person, you can still watch and participate parts of the E3 Coliseum.

How to watch

On June 13 and 14, the official E3 Facebook page will stream some of the panels. Any questions you ask during the panels have a chance to be answered on stage. Because the panels will occur throughout two full days, and it is unclear exactly which ones will be streamed, we advise you to keep checking in to make sure you do not miss your favorite studio’s panel.

Who is going to be there?

There is a long list of participating companies over at the official E3 site. Keep in mind that not all of these companies will be involved in live-streams but there is plenty of big names to look out for. Our guess is that any major company who showed off an upcoming game at one of the press conferences is likely to be streamed during the E3 Coliseum. Here is a small sample of publishers and developers signed on to partake in the E3 Coliseum (spoiler: it includes most of the major names working today).

  • Activision
  • Bandai Namco
  • Bethesda
  • Capcom
  • Epic Games
  • Konami
  • Microsoft
  • Nintendo
  • Sega Europe
  • Sony
  • Square Enix
  • Take-Two Interactive
  • Telltale Games
  • THQ Nordic

How to access the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 beta
A soldier aims their pistol at an enemy at night.

It's been almost a year since last year's Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 was released, which means it's time for the next installment in the annual shooter franchise. This time we're completing the trilogy (again) with Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3. This entry has already generated a lot of hype among fans of the franchise for the inclusion, and return, of some highly requested features such as the mini-map and Zombies mode.

Sticking to the usual late-fall release schedule, Modern Warfare 3 will officially launch on November 10 of this year, but that doesn't mean you have to wait until then to get a taste of what's to come. If you play your cards right, you can get in on the beta to sharpen your skills before the competition.

How to get Soul Coins in Baldur’s Gate 3

One of the more rare items you can find in Baldur's Gate 3 is the mysterious Soul Coins. If you're lucky enough to happen upon one, knowing what it even does is one thing, but trying to find more will most likely leave you stumped. While they are quite valuable to sell, they have a far more important use and are limited in number. These rare treasures are tied to a specific companion you can get later on in the game, so finding each one is critical to making the most of their abilities. Being so small, many Soul Coins are easily missed, so here's how to get them all in Baldur's Gate 3.
What do Soul Coins do?

If you were lucky enough to find a Soul Coin on your own, even reading the description wouldn't give you much clue as to what it is or how you're supposed to use it. All it says is "Strange, incomprehensible whispers emanate from the coin, pervading your mind with rage and despair. These coins can power Infernal Engines." Not very helpful, save for that final extra line.

How to beat the Faith-Leap Trial in Baldur’s Gate 3
A Baldur's Gate 3 character lights the way.

The Gauntlet of Shar is, well, quite a gauntlet in Baldur’s Gate 3. This dungeon changes things up a bit by giving you three unique trails to challenge you in different ways. The Faith-Leap Trail is perhaps the most puzzling of them all, and may even appear impossible when you first see it. The thing is, you can't trust your eyes in this trial. There's just too large of a gap between you and the goal for you to cross unless you do as the name suggests and take a leap of faith. But don't just put your faith in Shar and hope for the best -- instead let us show you the path.
How to beat the Faith-Leap Trial

Once you enter this trail after making the blood sacrifice, you will see the Umbral Gem way across a massive death pit. But there actually is a path forward, just an invisible one. The path is the same every time, so as long as you memorize it, you'll be fine, but you should still make a safety save just in case. You only get three tries before anyone you're controlling who falls will die.
