While we're frantically newsing all of the E3 announcements and trailers, it turns out we have writers on the ground over at the event as well, including long-time contributor and OPSM Australia editor Adam "Grizz" Mathew who took to the long-gestating Tom Clancy's The Division for us at a special pre-E3 Ubisoft event.
A surprise announcement at Microsoft's E3 conference was definitely the existence of ReCore, a new game from Keiji Inafune and the makers of Metroid Prime. And with that sort of pedigree it's no wonder that's exactly how this new Xbox One exclusive is being billed. But apart from the trailer, which depicts a futuristic existence where a girl and her robot dog run into a bit of futuristic robot trouble, not much else is known about the game.
A brand new game from Rare that isn't Kinect-related is not only well overdue, but something we haven't seen for a long, long time. With today's announcement of Sea of Thieves for Xbox One, Rare are back, and they've returned in style. A multiplayer online pirate adventure game, the debut trailer for Sea of Thieves definitely buckles all the right swashes. And in all the right places.
After the fantastic looking reveal trailer, pretty much all we wanted to see from EA and Dice at E3 was a close look at an actual round or match of Star Wars Battlefront. And that's exactly what we got today with 'Walker Assault'. Hoth! Speeders! Jet Packs! Walkers! Tow Cables! Darth Vader! and Luke Skywalker! Yeah, it looks pretty great.
Going into its E3 conference this year Microsoft boldly predicted that what it would show would be the greatest line-up in Xbox history. As to whether or not that ended up being true might be up for debate, but they definitely came out swinging. Halo 5, Gear of War 4, Rise of the Tom Raider, Fable Legends, Forza 6, and more led its exclusive charge. Click through to see them all in action.
Fans of classic Rare games, namely anyone who grew playing games from the iconic studio, would no doubt have at one point or another felt the need to fire up one of its classic titles to replay over the years. To celebrate the 30th anniversary of Rare, Microsoft will be releasing Rare Replay for the Xbox One on August 4.
Microsoft held its annual E3 conference in the wee early hours of the morning and kicked things off with an extended look at Halo 5: Guardians, due October 27 this year. And, the footage shown definitely looks very Halo. But Halo with a new drop-in and drop-out co-operative campaign campaign across two separate teams of guardians (with one led by Master Chief) and a new multiplayer mode taking place in a large open space, called Warzone.
Bethesda held its first E3 conference earlier today, and with names like DOOM and Fallout, you can be sure they knocked it out of the park. But in addition to a detailed look at the Big Two, Bethesda also announced a sequel to Dishonored and the existence of an Elder Scrolls Card Game Thing. Click through to watch the entire conference. Plus, all the trailers released so far!
