The Covid-19 pandemic has made 2020 anything but typical. With nearly every major public event cancelled, it's no surprise that E3 would be among the casualties. Yet, despite there not being an actual Electronic Entertainment Expo this year, that didn't stop the big players from still making their obligatory mid-year gaming announcements. So, E3 or no, we've still got plenty of great information to round up for you.
Well, the 2019 Electronic Entertainment Expo wrapped up a few days ago and it was definitely a memorable one for quite a few reasons. There was plenty of exciting news from the world of video games, as well as the typical head-scratcher or two. As with most E3s, there were far too many games shown and announcements made to possibly be able to cover everything in a single post, so we've gone ahead and condensed it down to a more easily digestible dozen for you. So without further ado, here are the top 12 highlights we have selected that were either unveiled or reconfirmed at the event.
More news out of E3 2016. Nintendo aired their live video presentation yesterday and it was unfortunately quite pathetic. They only had two games to show off. Two. One for each of the two game systems they are currently "supporting". And one of those games won't even be released until some time next year.
The way Nintendo has been struggling as of late, it's somewhat difficult to imagine that they were once the undisputed king of the gaming landscape. Oh, how the mighty have fallen. One wonders why they even bothered presenting anything for E3 this year (or just how long they can manage to sustain interest in their products in the face of such a significantly apparent lack of effort on their part).
At least one of the two games they showed was The Legend of Zelda (even though it's the same game they've already been teasing fans with for the last two years). This year they did finally confirm the title though, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. We also got to see some new gameplay elements such as horse wrangling, wall climbing, grass burning and food crafting. The game kind of looks to be a mixture of Red Dead Redemption, Assassin's Creed, Far Cry, The Elder Scrolls, and the Zelda universe (which sounds pretty fantastic, actually).
In case you missed their presentation, you can check out the trailer after the break. It's pretty much all they have to offer you right now.
And E3 continues. Sony held their annual press event last night and they had plenty to show. One of the more interesting surprises had to be Resident Evil VII: Biohazard.
Fans haven't been certain whether Capcom would continue on with another sequel or just reboot the franchise after the slight misstep that was RE6. Based on the reveal, it appears that they decided to forge ahead with the next chapter, though this game does look like somewhat of a change in direction for the series. See for yourself by watching the official trailer after the break. (Or, PlayStation Plus members can go download a free demo to actually see how it plays.)
Well, it's that time of year again. E3 is upon us once more and in full swing. EA kicked things off yesterday with their pre-show press conference, where they showed off the highly-anticipated sequel to the well-received 2014 PC and Xbox hit, Titanfall.
Titanfall 2 looks to expand on the original in some pretty significant ways. Firstly, they've added a campaign mode (which was sadly missing in action with the first game). Secondly, the game will be arriving on PlayStation 4 as well as Xbox and PC this time around. And lastly, grappling hooks! Just do yourself a favor and watch the official multiplayer trailer after the break (if you haven't seen it already). (If you have, well...may as well watch it again, right?)
