E3's organiser, the Entertainment Software Association, has announced E3 Live, a new event inviting the public to be a part of this year's show.
Taking place just outside the Los Angeles Convention Center at LA Live, E3 Live offers three days of hands-on time with new games, live music, the opportunity to meet industry personalities and the chance to pick up some exclusive merchandise.
Tickets to the event are free, although you'll need to register for them in advance over on its website. A list of games being showcased at the event has yet to be confirmed.
EA Play, meanwhile, a public event hosted by Battlefield 1 publisher EA, will be also running alongside E3 at LA Live's The Novo. The publisher has promised hands-on time with some of its upcoming games, presumably including Battlefield 1 and Titanfall 2.
E3 2016 begins on Tuesday, June 14. The main show, which takes place inside the LA Convention Center, will remain open only to members of the games industry and select invitees.
