It’s almost that time of the year again as the world’s biggest gaming convention, E3, is just around the corner from June 14-16. The excitement meters are beginning to climb as some highly anticipated video games are going to be shown to the public. There are some titles that are bound to get the blood pumping and pulses racing, so why don’t we go on and name a few games to look forward to at E3 this year.
A new Star Wars IP
The only thing we know for sure about this is that Visceral is making the game. Rumours are suggestingthat it is set in an open world, but you should probably take those rumours with a grain of salt, as they are basically just… rumours.
Fingers crossed it could end up resembling something along the lines of cancelled project Star Wars 1313. So hopefully we see a teaser of the game during the EA press conference.
Mass Effect: Andromeda
Gears of War 4
This upcoming installment of Gears of War will feature a new story and new characters. This time we will be following the footsteps Marcus Fenix’s son, JD. This approach looks like it will breathe some fresh air into the franchise, and go back to basics of the original game. Fear, tension, close, demanding combat, a two player co-op limit, and add in an element where a single type of enemy is enough to scare you. Yeah, this is one to take a good look at during the Microsoft conference.
Is there anything CD Projekt Red cannot do, as The Witcher 3 was easily one of the best games of the last decade. So is it wrong to think that Cyberpunk 2077 will steal show? No it isn’t, because it will… if it’s shown that is.
The game hasn’t been seen or heard from since its small teaser almost three years ago. Since development on The Witcher 3 and the DLC is done, hopefully we are able to finally see some gameplay or another trailer for this neo sci-fi, Blade Runner style game… oh, and maybe a release window would be nice too.
The Last of Us 2
So uh, Naughty Dog. We know you have just finished making another great game, but we are just wondering if you are working on another great game. We’re not trying to be pushy or anything, but we are really hoping you say something about it. Maybe even give us trailer showing our two favourite characters, and show what has happened after the events of the original, or maybe what has happened after a couple of years. Too optimistic?
So these are just a few video games from a list of many to be on the lookout for during E3. Hopefully we get some big reveals and even some bigger shock announcements, which is basically the norm E3.
