That's it. This is the biggest ad. But there are others.
The E3, the biggest event of the game industry of the year, is down this week. The last days have been a wave of developers announcing their new games and we have the biggest here.
Every year, E3 is a monster of a convention with ads, teasers and presentations galore, and you almost never know what you are going to get. It's easy to get lost in the reshuffle. Do not worry, though. We've put together the biggest ads (or at least the ones you hear most about in the near future).
The Old Scrolls VI
Let's get out of the way, the game that's most important to you is here, it's real, and we do not know anything about it. At the end of the Bethesda press event, Todd Howard played the teaser above that presumably shows the land where The Elder Scrolls VI will take place, before the title appears on the screen. 39; screen. That's all. There is speculation that this might be in High Rock or Hammerfell but even that's only a rough estimate based on the topography in a 30-second teaser. Get used to this kind of rampant and largely unfounded speculation, because Bethesda has not bothered to announce when it will come out. Not even in what year it will arrive. Which means that it is probably very long.
Speaking of Bethesda games that we probably will not have to play for a long time, the company has also announced something really exciting: a brand new franchise. The teaser above gives very little but this strongly implies that the game will be put in the space with a sci-fi theme. It could be a RPG-style Fallout / Elder Scrolls game in a new genre, which, put aside after apocalypse and fantasy, would nicely complement Bethesda's appeal. It turns out that Bethesda filed a mark for "Starfield" in 2013 so, like the main RPG games from Bethesda, this one seems to be in development for a very, very long time. Like The Elder Scrolls VI, we have absolutely no idea when this game will be released, so do not be too excited.
Okay, you can be a little excited.
Recently, Bethesda announced Fallout 76, which looked like a new main entrance into the Fallout franchise, even though not everyone was convinced that this was the case . It turns out that this skepticism was justified. Fallout 76 will be a multiplayer online survival game, where you will play vault residents in the early days after the war, exploring the post-apocalypse for the first time. The people you will meet in the game will not be characters, but other players. You can work with other players to build settlements, or attack the settlement of someone else and take it for your own. There will also be nuclear sites sitting around, which players can raid, and then launch nuclear weapons on other players' colonies. So, if you wonder why the world seems so destroyed in other games, it is not because of nuclear war. This is because VaultSlayer420 continued to publish n00bs.
For once in this presentation, Bethesda gave us concrete information about the versions. Fallout 76 will fall on November 14th of this year.
Bethesda did not invent Doom, but after acquiring id Software, she managed to reinvent it with the semi-restart of Doom (2016). He channeled the feel of the classic first-person shooter that defined the genre in 1993, while relying on all the graphical and interface traps you'd expect from a modern shooter . Now, Bethesda is back with Doom: Eternal. Like the original Doom II, this sequel will feature the demons from hell invading the Earth, without anyone buying Doomguy to stop them. We do not know when this game will be released, but we will probably hear more information at QuakeCon in August.
Bioware is best known for his story-based role-playing game with a myriad of romantic options among a variety of characters, best illustrated by the trilogy Mass Effect. He is also known for poorly received follow-up, Mass Effect: Andromeda. The latter would have been lower than the company's ability to reallocate resources to Anthem. Soon we will see if it was worth it. Unlike previous games, Anthem is a semi-multiplayer game similar to Destiny that you can play solo, but who will benefit from having a team. You'll use a variety of combinations, each with different weapons and abilities, to complete missions, and you'll be able to trade combinations according to the needs of each mission. This gameplay mechanics may seem familiar to anyone who played Warframe and if it is similar in practice, it will be a fun option. Still, Bioware said that Anthem will miss romantic options for games like Mass Effect. Between this little downer, and the move to support multiplayer games, Bioware has an upstream slog to prove that this game is a worthy successor to Mass Effect.
Jedi: Fallen Order
How to make a splash at a gaming conference without showing the game? As Respawn developer can tell you, it only takes two words: Star Wars. In the absence of gameplay footage, cinematic trailer and barely any information, Respawn has announced that their new game will unfold during this nebulous period between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope. You will play as a Padawan who has survived the 66th Order. This is shenanigans because so notable badasses Ki-Adi-Mundi Aayla Secura and the greatest of all time Kit Fisto could not survive the purge of the Jedi order by the Emperor, the idea that a weak padawan s in So living makes this story about space wizards with very unrealistic laser swords. We will, of course, always play it.
Sea of Solitude
It's hard for independent games to stand out at E3, but Sea of Solitude has managed to grab our attention. Published by E3, but developed by the German studios Jo-Mei games, this title explores the insulating nature of depression in a gameplay of a dark beauty. We will probably see more trailers for this between now and when it comes out in "early 2019".
While the series looked a little long in the tooth, Halo is the flagship series for Xbox players. With Halo Infinite, the main hero of the series is back in action, presumably alongside Cortana – the character, not the voice assistant that everyone forgets is integrated with Windows – and even at the Warthog. We still do not know much about the game, let alone a release date, but if you're a fan of the Halo franchise, you might have reasons to come back soon.
Kingdom Hearts: 3
It's been thirteen years since Kingdom Hearts II dropped and while the developer Square Enix has released other filling games in the meantime, the main franchise has not been updated for a while . Soon, this will eventually change. Despite a small delay (previously, Square Enix claimed that the game would come out in 2018), the company finally announced the release date in a tweet at 01:30 ET on Sunday : You can play the game on January 29, 2019. At the Microsoft press conference, Square Enix tried very hard to get out of its own press conference this year. They even announced that the game would feature a Frozen world. Hope this is enough to help you out as the long marathon of this game's release comes to an end.
Just Cause 4
Like a lot of sandbox games before it, the Just Cause series is designed to help you get by, blow things up dramatically and stupidly. The title of this series gives the justification for this free destruction. Just Cause 3 dropped in 2015, so it's been a long time since the series could use an update. The trailer above for Just Cause 4 does not show much in terms of gameplay, but it features giant tornadoes that would surely help to destroy things. The game falls on the 4th of December 2018.
The Witcher 3 is one of the most critically acclaimed RPGs . So when the developer behind the game, CD Projekt Red, announced that they were going to do an adaptation of the role-playing game on table Cyberpunk 2020 people paid attention. At E3, we finally had a trailer for the game, Cyberpunk 2077. If you are in the colorful mohawk and the digital mod aesthetic of the body, then this game looks like bright and lively candy for you. We have not seen any gameplay yet, but the developer has gained some confidence as we are waiting for the indefinite time it will take for this game to come out. Yes, like many of the biggest games announced at E3, this one also has no release date.
The Assassin's Creed Odyssey
Assassin's Creed may be a bit of a gamble from a series, but the previous entry, Assassin's Creed Origins was relatively popular . Naturally, a year later, Ubisoft announced a follow-up, Assassin's Creed Odyssey, which will take the player back to ancient Greece to hang out with the philosophers, and possibly stab a few. More importantly, this version of the game will have a new feature, not seen in previous Assassin's Creed games: the ability to customize your hero. You can choose to play as Alexios or Kassandra, both of whom can pursue romantic stories with other characters. At the time when Bioware, the company behind the legendary Mass Effect series, is moving away from romantic RPGs with their new Anthem franchise, it's a welcome addition to a series of games that lacked functionality .
Beyond Good and Evil 2
From time to time, life gives you a second chance. When Beyond Good and Evil was released in 2003, he received rave reviews . Despite this, he sold very few copies and eventually disappeared quickly from the market. Fortunately, Ubisoft today is ready to give a second chance to the robust history of the game. Beyond Good and Evil 2 will follow the young Jade on his adventures before the events of the game. original. In addition, Joseph Gordon-Levitt has come forward to announce that his company HitRECord would associate with Ubisoft to allow users to contribute "music and visuals" to the game. Okay, this last piece is a bit weird, but the game itself looks great!
Just Dance 2019
– Just Dance 2019 (@justdancegame) 11 June 2018
There's going to be a new Just Dance game this year, which is pretty cool since, even though the music trend seems to be gone, people are still playing Just Dance songs. The new game will be released on modern consoles like PS4, Xbox One and Switch, but it will also come on older consoles. Like in, much older. It will be available on Xbox 360 and Wii U, and even on the original Wii. Yes, despite the fact that the Wii is twelve, there are always new games. If you have decided to ignore the Wii U and have not decided to spend money for the Switch, you can even participate in this dance party.
Stranding of Death
Hideo Kojima has only baffled people since he was chased out of Konami and started the new Death Stranding project. We got disconcerting trailer after disconcerting trailer and this year's E3 was no different. With one exception: we finally could see some gameplay. Kind of. We see what is definitely a video of the player's character, but all he's doing is walking. At one point, the main character (played by Norman Reedus) walks in a field trying to avoid the tar monsters while carrying a backpack powered by … well, that's it can -be easier if you watch the trailer. Anyway, Kojima does not skimp on strangeness and we are here for that.
The last of us part 2
We saw the first trailer of the highly anticipated The Last of Us Part II, and it was a doozy. The video begins with Ellie dropping inside what appears to be a church before she starts dancing (and smooching) with a new female character. As the two dance, the video ends with a demo of The Last of Part II's combat system, which looks as cinematic as it is brutal. Ellie rips wildly and fights her way through a few enemies for about five minutes in a row, before returning to the church stage. If you liked the previous game, it's hard to imagine a more satisfying trailer.
Insomniac does a Spider-Man game. It sounds a lot, I mean, a lot, like the Batman Arkham games, but with Spider-Man. Spidey confronts the Sinister Six, which will include Electro, Rhino, Vulture, Scorpion, Mr. Negatif and an unnamed sixth villain that we do not see in the trailer, but whoever either of old Spidey scared. However, we will not have to wait long before discovering that Spider-Man is coming out on September 7th of this year.
Ghost of Tsushima
The developer Sucker Punch, the team behind Infamous previously announced that they were going to make a samurai game. Now we can see what it will look like in action. The new trailer of the game showed the protagonist sneaking, stabbing, and katana-making their way through the most magnificent rendering of Japan that you could ever see.
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate
We knew that there was going to be a new Super Smash Bros. for a moment, and now we finally watched the new game. And what a look that was. First, the obvious question: this is not a port. This is a brand new game, built for the switch. Nintendo has also confirmed that the list will include all the characters you have ever played in a Smash Bros. game. It means cutting characters like Ice Climbers, Pichu and Young Link, and DLC characters like Cloud and Ryu. There will also be new characters, like the Splatoon Inklings. Bonus: the new game will be compatible with GameCube controllers, if you prefer this classic feel. This sounds like a huge update for the series that can not fail to have something for everyone. Best of all, we had a release date: the game falls on December 7, 2018.
Super Mario Party
The last Mario Party game (which was not on the Wii U, which, let's face it, you probably jumped) came out in 2012. It's been a while since most of us have played a new Mario Party game, but that's all is about to change. The new Super Mario Party will arrive at the Switch on October 5, 2018. Between the portable nature of the console and the absolutely crazy technology in the Switch controllers, this game already seems to be one of the most creative games from the Serie.
Overcooked is an independent little game, but captured our hearts . In this game, up to four players team up to run a restaurant constantly prey to chaos. In the new version, players can throw ingredients, and levels will change over the course of your gameplay for even more ridiculous challenges. Overcooked 2 will fall on August 7th and includes local, wireless and online multiplayer mode.
This is by no means all that has been announced at E3, but this should cover the highlights. Now, when you gather around the metaphorical water cooler, at least you will know what everyone is talking about. Also, you know how to allocate your game budget for next year. Assuming you can wait so long.
