Uncategorized Admin 0

E3 2018 is fast approaching and our excitement for the biggest upcoming games continues to build. The show is bound to yield plenty of announcements and surprising reveals from companies, like Sony, Nintendo, Microsoft, Bethesda, Square Enix, and more. To prepare you for the upcoming event, we’ve created multiple features on the biggest games we’re likely to hear more about at E3, detailing everything we know so far about them and everything we’d love to hear. Below you can find a list of all the features we’ve made thus far. Be sure to check back often as we update this roundup with even more features.

Anthem

There’s a lot of excitement around Anthem leading into E3 2018 since it’s BioWare’s next big project and new IP. Expectations are high given this is a franchise debut from the same studio that brought us a slew of iconic RPGs: Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic, Mass Effect, and Baldur’s Gate to name a few. To give you a look at what’s ahead, here’s what we know about Anthem, as well as what we’re hoping to see from it at this year’s E3. [BioWare’s Anthem: What We Want At E3 2018]

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey

A new Assassin’s Creed game is inevitable; it’s only a matter of time before it comes along. May’s big Walmart Canada leak suggested an announcement could be coming soon, and it increasingly looks as if E3 might be when we get to hear about the game. A new leak has revealed a possible name–Odyssey–and setting for the next Assassin’s Creed, which may be coming out by the end of March 2019. [Assassin’s Creed Odyssey: What We Want At E3 2018]

Battlefield V

EA’s Battlefield V is definitely a game we’re excited to learn more about at E3 2018. Following the game’s announcement earlier this month, EA and developer DICE plan to talk a lot more about it next month at E3. In this feature we’re rounding up important details about the game including what we know about it so far, what’s confirmed for E3, and what we hope to see from the game at the show.

Borderlands 3

A new Borderlands game has been expected for some time now. The series is among 2K’s most successful franchises, and Borderlands 3 has been teased time and again. We know 2K has a new (but as-of-yet unannounced) game for one of its big franchises in the works, although it was recently delayed–rather than releasing by the end of March 2019, it’s not due until sometime between April 2019 and March 2020. That suddenly makes it less likely that E3 2018 is where we get a look at Borderlands 3–or whatever the game ends up being called. Nevertheless, here’s what we know about the potential project, as well as what we’d hope to see from an E3 reveal. [Borderlands 3: What We Want At E3 2018]

Call of Duty Black Ops 4

Treyarch is planning some interesting changes to the familiar Call of Duty formula with Black Ops 4. While every game in the long-running FPS series has had its own spin on things over the years, this year’s game is looking to buck some trends that has already made the community stand up and take notice. There was a lot to take in from the May 17 reveal event, so here’s a more detailed breakdown of what’s coming up for Blacks Ops 4, and we want to see at E3 2018. [Call Of Duty Black Ops 4: What We Want At E3 2018]

Cyberpunk 2077

E3 promises to bring news on lots of big games, and CD Projekt Red’s Cyberpunk 2077 is definitely one we’re excited to learn more about. While it is not confirmed to be at the event, signs are pointing to some kind of reveal in June. In this feature we’re rounding up important details about the game like what we know about it so far, what’s confirmed for E3, and what we hope to see from the game at the show. [Cyberpunk 2077: What We Want At E3 2018]

Days Gone

The setting is the Pacific Northwest. Freakers are on the loose. A biker gang rides on at the end of the world. This is Days Gone, the latest game from Sony’s Bend Studio, the team behind the Syphon Filter series and the handheld Resistance and Uncharted games. But Days Gone is bigger than anything Bend has done before. It’s an ambitious, open-world game in which you can travel vast distances while being stalked by hordes of zombie-like enemies. [Days Gone: What We Want At E3 2018]

Death Stranding

Death Stranding is one of the most exciting upcoming games appearing at E3 2018. The next project from famed developer Hideo Kojima has had us intrigued ever since its provocative E3 2016 reveal trailer. With the game confirmed as one of the four major games Sony intends to primarily focus on during its press conference, our hype and anticipation only continues to build. To prepare you for what’s ahead, here’s what we know about Death Stranding. [Death Stranding: What We Want At E3 2018]

The Division 2

Tom Clancy’s The Division came out in 2016 and it seemed like an ideal cross between shooter and MMORPG. The game immediately set itself apart with its contemporary setting, a realistic depiction of a snow-covered New York City enveloped in a pandemic crisis. Two years later, Ubisoft has announced that a sequel is in the works and that it’s set to appear at E3 2018. [The Division 2: What We Want At E3 2018]

Fallout 76

After nearly 24 hours of teasing on their official livestream, Bethesda has revealed the next installment in its post-apocalyptic series with Fallout 76. Set for release on PC, PS4, and Xbox One, the next game looks to focus a lot more on life within the insular inner-worlds of Vaults, and what comes after. Though the trailer was a satisfying teaser for what’s the come, there’s still a lot we want to know–so here’s a more detailed breakdown of what Fallout 76 is all about, and we want to see at E3 2018. [Fallout 76: What We Want At E3 2018]

Final Fantasy VII Remake

Square Enix dumbfounded naysayers and hopeful fans alike when it announced Final Fantasy VII Remake at E3 2015. Given the resulting hype, you’d think that we would’ve seen more about the game over the past three years, but apart from a second trailer at PlayStation Experience 2015 a few months later, only rumors and scraps of info have surfaced. We’ve got our fingers crossed that this will be the year–that E3 2018 will be the event–when the curtain is raised and Final Fantasy VII Remake is properly unveiled. Square Enix will have a dedicated presentation at the show, and while we can reasonably expect to see Shadow Of The Tomb Raider, Kingdom Hearts 3, and a few indies from the Square Enix Collective label, the publisher would do very well to feature Final Fantasy VII as much as possible.

Ghost of Tsushima

Revealed at Paris Games Week 2017, Ghost of Tsushima is one of Sony’s newest exclusives. There’s much excitement around the upcoming open-world game, as its premise as a historically authentic samurai action game is one its most unique aspects. Here’s what we know about Ghost of Tsushima, as well as what we’re hoping to see from it at this year’s E3. [Ghost of Tsushima PS4: What We Want At E3 2018]

Kingdom Hearts 3

Kingdom Hearts III has been a long time coming. While the series has had several spin-offs and side-stories since Kingdom Hearts II released 13 years ago, this is the game fans have been waiting for. To ready you for what’s ahead, here’s what we know about Kingdom Hearts III today, and what we’re hoping to see from it at E3 2018. [Kingdom Hearts 3: What We Want At E3 2018]

The Last Of Us Part II

The Last of Us Part II is one of the most highly anticipated games appearing at E3 2018. As one of the games Sony intends to focus on during its press conference, we’re expecting to gain a lot of new insights and hopefully see a bunch of fresh gameplay. To prepare for what’s ahead, let’s breakdown what we already know about The Last of Us Part II, and what we’re hoping to see at this year’s E3. [The Last Of Us 2: What We Want At E3 2018]

Metroid Prime 4

Knowing full well that it would leave fans wondering what’s to come, Nintendo’s E3 2017 reveal that Metroid Prime 4 is in development was short but sweet. All we got was a logo, and Bill Trinen’s word that it is due to ship sometime “beyond 2017.” We are well into 2018 now and there’s still nary a word about what the game will look like, let alone what studio is currently piecing it together. Assuming that Nintendo makes a big show at this year’s E3, here’s what we hope to find out about the secretive sequel. [Metroid Prime 4: What We Want At E3 2018]

Pokemon Switch

Though not confirmed to appear during Nintendo’s E3 2018 presentation, the upcoming Nintendo Switch Pokemon game is high on our wishlist this year. Here’s everything we know about the game and everything we really want to see come June. [Pokemon On Nintendo Switch: What We Want At E3 2018]

Rage 2

After a retailer leak and a series of teaser images, we finally got confirmation that Rage 2 is real. Bethesda released a live-action reveal trailer that set the tone for the game and a follow-up gameplay trailer that gave us a glimpse at some in-engine action. Senior vice president of Bethesda Pete Hines has confirmed that we’ll find out even more about the game at E3, so in preparation for that, here’s a wrap-up of everything we know so far and what we want to see more of when June rolls around. [Rage 2: What We Want At E3 2018]

Red Dead Redemption 2

Rockstar Games doesn’t usually have a large presence at E3; it tends to announce details about its latest games on its own schedule. But seeing as Red Dead Redemption II is only a few months away, it’s possible we’ll hear more about the upcoming open-world Western at this year’s big event. [Red Dead Redemption 2: What We Want At E3 2018]

Shadow Of The Tomb Raider

Lara Croft returns in the upcoming Shadow of the Tomb Raider, the last entry in the Tomb Raider origin trilogy, which began with the titular series reboot in 2013. As one of Square Enix’s biggest upcoming games, we’re more than likely to hear about it at E3 2018. To prepare for what’s ahead, let’s breakdown what we already know about Shadow of the Tomb Raider, and what we’re hoping to see at this year’s E3. [Shadow Of The Tomb Raider: What We Want At E3 2018]

Splinter Cell

The Splinter Cell series has been dormant for quite some time now. Ubisoft has done little with its signature stealth-action game franchise for half a decade, but there have been enough shreds of potential information to think a new Splinter Cell game might finally be happening. With Metal Gear Solid in a weird place after Hideo Kojima’s departure from Konami, the time is certainly right. Here’s what we know about the status of Splinter Cell, as well as what we’d hope to see at E3 2018 if Ubisoft does decide to surprise us. [Splinter Cell: What We Know And Want At E3 2018]

Super Smash Bros. Switch

E3 promises to bring news on lots of big games, and Nintendo’s Super Smash Bros. for Switch is unquestionably one of the show’s most anticipated titles. Nintendo has already said the fighting game will be the focus of its overall showing this year, so you can expect a lot of news and reveals during the event. In this feature we’re rounding up important details about the game like what we know about it so far, what’s confirmed for E3, and what we hope to see from the game at the show. [Super Smash Bros. Switch: What We Want At E3 2018]
