G4’s announced its plans for E3, including a massive half-hour blowout on Star Wars: The Old Republic.

X-Play host and G4’s editor-in-chief of games Adam Sessler is obviously stoked for what’s to be shown from the BioWare MMO in two-and-a-half weeks.

“Never before have we granted so much time to one game at E3,” he said. “Star Wars: Old Republic is a game of such breadth that the excitement around it and the time we are dedicating to it will have a huge pay-off for the viewers.”

As well as the blowout on the MMO, the broadcaster also plans to show five major press conferences live, including Valve for the first time ever, with over 25 hours worth of content planned for the channel throughout E3 week, 40 hands-on demos and more.

Please hurry up, E3. The wait’s killing us.

The party kicks off on June 15, and lasts until June 17.

Thanks, Ripten.
