E3 Coliseum 2018 panels to feature Kojima, Phil Spencer, Amy Hennig, Westworld creators, more

E3 Coliseum, part of the package for non-media E3 attendees, is boasting an impressive set of guests for this year's panels.

The E3 Coliseum 2018 is made up of three days of presentations and developer panels, some hosted by Geoff Keighley at The Novo at L.A. Live.

Expect interviews and talks with Hideo Kojima, who will be talking with director Jordan Vogt-Roberts (Kong: Skull Island). Phil Spencer, Bethesda's Todd Howard, Amy Hennig, and Epic's worldwide creative director Donald Mustard are also among the names headlining the show this year.

The Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Zombies panel, which we already knew about, will be accompanied by others for Spider-Man, The Last of Us: Part 2, and World of Warcraft.

Interestingly, the E3 Coliseum this year will also include a big list of non-games people. Director Darren Aronofsky, Westworld creators Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy, Avengers: Infinity War director Joe Russo, Jack Black, Elijah Wood, and magician Penn Jillette are all confirmed to attend.

Anyone with an E3 2018 badge can line up for any of these panels. Access will be available on a first come, first served basis. Attendees can line up starting Tuesday, June 12 at 7am PT, with the first show starting 10am on the same day.

Most panels will be streamed on Twitch, YouTube, Mixer, and Twitter. Facebook will also be streaming some panels, and you'll be able to ask questions live.

The ESA released a preliminary schedule for the guests/days, but we're still waiting on exact panel times and lineups.
