E3 2018 is in full swing and there have been a ton of new announcements and game trailers. I rounded up all the best trailers and dumped them here. Now the hard part, waiting for these games to actually release so I can play them.
Microsoft opened E3 with a bang by announcing Halo Infinite. The game is being developed by 343 Industries, Master Chief will be returning, and the game is powered by an all-new “Slipspace Engine.” Looks like a grand return to the Halo aesthetic that has been missing for awhile now.
SUPER SMASH BROS. ULTIMATE
The new Super Smash Bros. is really pushing to earn that ultimate title. Nintendo is bringing back every single character to ever appear in a Smash Bros. and the game has been rebuilt from the ground up.
The Witcher developer CD Projekt Red has finally released a good look at its highly anticipated sci-fi RPG Cyberpunk 2077.
KINGDOM HEARTS III
The long-awaited third game in the Kingdom Hearts series is almost here.
I don’t have a clue what’s going on in Death Stranding, but it sure does look interesting. Definitely the first game I’ve seen with a fetus-powered, ghost-detecting device.
THE LAST OF US PART II
An extended 12-minute look at the upcoming sequel to The Last of Us. Very impressive demo with a good look at the stealth and survival gameplay. Looks gritty and dark.
Fallout is back, this time it’s with multiplayer. In Fallout 76 Bethesda is throwing players together in the irradiated wasteland where they’ll be able to work together to build settlements and fend off monsters. Or you can just fight each other instead. Worst comes to worst, you can just nuke the competition.
ASSASSIN’S CREED: ODYSSEY
Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey takes players to Sparta with an absolutely massive world to explore.
Rage is back with an open world and explosions powered by Just Cause developer Avalanche Studios.
JUST CAUSE 4
Speaking of Just Cause. It’s coming back with a new engine, improved physics and tons of new stuff to blow up.
Gears of War 5 is coming next year with a new main character: Kait Diaz. There are also some new Arctic and jungle landscapes that bring some much needed color to the game.
ORI AND THE WILL OF THE WISPS
Ori and the Blind Forest is probably the prettiest game I’ve played in recent memory. Its sequel Ori and the Will of the Wisps looks like it will follow suit.
Does killing Nazis ever get old? I submit it does not. The Wolfenstein series jumps forward in time to 1980s Paris.
FORZA HORIZON 4
Forza Horizon games are pure fun. The newly announced Forza Horizon 4 takes place in Britain, adding a new dynamic weather system that will change over time.
Sable comes with absolutely incredible artwork and a haunting soundtrack from Japanese Breakfast. Explore a vast desert filled with strange structures.
This one is available now. Unravel 2 is a puzzle platformer that you can play in local co-op.
SKYRIM: VERY SPECIAL EDITION
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim has been ported to just about every platform at this point. Skyrim: Very Special Edition is a real Alexa skill. No joke.
