Not that we were expecting to see the next installment in the Elder Scrolls series at E3, as Bethesda only really showcases its biggest titles when they're just about done. But it's good to know that it's in the works. And that it's going to be ambitious in scope. In a recent discussion with IGN, Bethesda Game Studios head Todd Howard opened up a bit about the future of the studio.
Announced at E3 2014, Crackdown 3 was always going to be delayed. With news that it was taking advantage of cloud computing to manage city-wide CPU-intensive destruction, that's the sort of ambitious feature that lends itself to delays. And with the game being a no-show this year, developer Reagent Games and series creator Dave Jones took time to update fans about where the game is at. Spoiler alert, it's coming 2017.
After a successful debut last year AMD and PC Gamer teamed up again to put on a PC gaming show for E3. With the debut gameplay trailer for Dawn of War III, plus new looks at LawBreakers, and updates on PC favourites like Ark: Survival Evolved and Killing Floor these are all the highlights from the PC Gaming Show.
The upcoming arena FPS from Cliff Blezinski's Boss Key Productions got a new trailer in time for the PC Gaming Show at E3, and to top it off a Closed Alpha Test is happening for LawBreakers this weekend starting June 18. Be sure to sign up for it now, as spots are limited.
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild for the Wii U and the mysterious Nintendo NX is slated for release early 2017. After a teaser debut a few years back Nintendo has opted to give players an incredibly in-depth look at the new adventure at E3. It's safe to say that this is easily the most ambitious game in the series with a vast open world to explore and a non-linear approach to progression. Plus, that unmistakable Nintendo sheen of quality.
And with a photo-realistic visual style, Resident Evil 7 is a clear departure for the series that has been more about action and thrills since the release of the seminal Resident Evil 4. Going first-person with realistic visuals and slow measured mechanics, the creepy factor has been turned up to 11. And if you're a PlayStation Plus member you can even check out a Resident Evil 7 demo, out now!
During a livestream earlier today developer Bend Studio went through its new post-apocalyptic open world zombie game Days Gone. Revealed during the Sony press conference, and built using the Unreal Engine, the game looks fantastic. And with swarms of high speed zombies (or as they're known here 'freakers') that can chase players through abandoned lumberyards and forests it certainly looks like a tense gaming experience.
The holiday themed Dead Rising 4 was announced during Microsoft's E3 conference and today Capcom has confirmed that the game will star the protagonist from the original Dead Rising Frank West as he goes back to Willamette, Colorado sixteen years after the events of the original. The game is set to be released on Xbox One and Windows 10 later this year.
Blizzard's Overwatch is certainly popular, and the accessibility of the hero-based shooter make it one of the most fun and varied multiplayer games in a long while. We love it. But with news that there are now 10 million people playing the game, we're taken aback. Mainly because that's a whole lotta people! A whole lotta.
With Nintendo doing its own thing by streaming a presentation that would only feature one non-handheld game, and no news or info about its mysterious NX console due for release in March next year, you might question why they would even bother. But the game in question is The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild for the Nintendo Wii U and Nintendo NX, a new open world entry in the series that looks like a genuine departure for the series. And a fantastic looking one to boot.
