Crystal Dynamics E3 Schedule Announced

E3, the gaming event of the year, is almost upon us, and Crystal Dynamics has kicked things off by releasing a new Rise of the Tomb Raider trailer. They've also posted their show schedule. I've listed the main points below, but be sure to check the Official Tomb Raider Blog and the Square Enix Forums for updates in case any of this changes.

Crystal has also revived the E3 Ambassador Program first launched in 2012. A group of fansite webmasters from around the world will attend the expo as representatives of the fan community. They'll be bringing us news from the convention floor and sharing their impressions, as well as presenting our questions to the developers. You can contact the individual ambassadors directly or post questions on this forum thread.
