With E3 less than a week away we look at our favourite confirmed games to be showcased at E3 so far.
Assassin’s Creed Odyssey
It comes as no surprise that Ubisoft have another new game under their belt, potentially to be released in this current fiscal year. Assassin’s Creed Odyssey was shrouded in leaks, and not long after announced by Ubisoft as the next game in the massive IP, Assassin’s Creed. A leak from JeuxVideo shows an Assassin’s Creed Odyssey key ring, which resembles a helmet from ancient Greece.
With this, the confirmation from Ubisoft and the smaller teaser trailer it looks like Odyssey is to be set in Ancient Greece, which may bring back naval combat being a major mechanic in the newest Assassin’s Creed game. Watch the E3 teaser video below:
After a long period of teasing, Bethesda have announced the next instalment in their post-apocalyptic IP, Fallout 76. Firstly, if you’re looking for a Solider 76 origin story RPG, you’ll be sad to hear this is definitely not it.
According to Kotaku Fallout 76 is looking to be more of an online survival game, in a similar vein as Rust, rather than a whole new single player RPG. This has divided a lot of people, some excited for the idea and some just wanting another massive single player campaign. Whether this means Bethesda are throwing their hat into the ring of Battle Royale themed games or if they’re trying to bring the online world of Elder Scrolls to this IP, we’ll have to find out at E3.
It’s no secret that this is the online multiplayer game to watch, with its stunning graphics and insane world, everyone is excited to see where this new EA/Bioware IP takes us. Having a massive reveal at last year’s E3, we’re hoping that this year focuses on showing off more gameplay, showcasing some solid lore and RPG elements and giving us a solid release period for 2019.
Death Standing is the thriller/horror game to look forward to. With the creative mind of Kojima and A-class performances of Mads Mikklesen, Norman Reedus and even Guillermo Del Toro, this is looking to become a gaming classic in the near future. Looking forward to Sony’s E3 conference we hope that this game finally gets a release period and even a gameplay trailer.
The Division 2
The Division was a perfect example of Ubisoft releasing games that seem unfinished, or unrefined, and over 1 to 2 years turning them into the biggest and best shooters of our time. The Division became a stunning, mechanically outstanding shooter with a good story and endless multiplayer fun. Now, Ubisoft have announced The Division 2 is due to be revealed at this year’s E3, and putting aside any teething problems previous Ubisoft shooters have had, we’re very excited to see where this new game takes us.
Other games we’re excited to hear about at E3 include Rage 2, The Last of Us Part II, Pokemon Let’s Go and Days Gone (read our recent article on the game here). Additionally, there are some games we’re dying to get more information about at this year’s E3 including Cyberpunk 2077, Kingdom Hearts 3 and Ghost of Tsushima.
