Announced last year at Bethesda's first E3 conference, Dishonored 2 took center stage this time around with an extended look at the game, its setting, and how it takes the franchise into new and exciting places. Featuring two playable characters, Emily Kaldwin and Corvo Attano, each with their own abilities and upgrade paths, Dishonored 2 sees the action move from the streets of Dunwall to coastal city of Karnaca.
As part of its E3 showcase earlier today Bethesda Game Studios director Todd Howard took the time to thanks the millions of Fallout 4 players who have made the latest game in the series the most popular yet. And with the introduction of mod support for both PC and console versions of the game, the content doesn't look to be stopping anytime soon. In fact a new official DLC pack, called Contraptions, will be released next week.
At least that's what we gathered from the reveal trailer. Throw in a dash of Groundhog Day and this new version of Prey looks quite unlike anything we've seen before from the series. Which, is both a good and bad thing. Good because this is pretty much a reboot in every way, and looks wholly original in tone and scope. And bad because we can probably say good-bye once and for all to the cool cyberpunk Prey 2 from a few years back.
In a surprise move Bethesda opened its E3 conference earlier today with a first look at id Software's new game, Quake Champions. Although what we got to see was a pre-rendered cinematic trailer, that didn't detract from excitement that a new multiplayer Quake game was incoming from id. Plus, the news that it's being built to take advantage of modern PC hardware was welcome news.
Since it was first revealed a month ago with an absolutely stunning teaser trailer, we've all been waiting patiently to get an extended look at the World War 1 epic Battlefield 1. And with the game taking center stage at EA's E3 conference early this morning a new in-game cinematic trailer debuted. And, it didn't disappoint.
With the addition of a single player campaign and expanding the potential player base to include PC, Xbox One, and PS4 users, Titanfall 2 is shaping up to be make a much larger impact than the original when it releases on October 28. Part of that is due to fast, fluid, and intense combat that now includes long range grappling hooks. Which, look awesome in action.
With a release window of March 2017 for Mass Effect Andromeda all eyes have been on EA to finally give us a proper look at the new BioWare sci-fi RPG at E3. Of course, the game was shown at the EA Play conference early this morning but it arrived in the form of a stylish new cinematic trailer. One peppered with glimpses of the game in action.
Featuring new story content, an additional raid, strike, weapons, armour, and more, Destiny: Rise of Iron has been announced with a release date of September 20. The expansion to Destiny, will take place in a new part of Earth called The Plaguelands, and will be available for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One for $44.95. Note that it will require the base game and all other DLC content, including last year's Taken King to run.
The saddest day will come when I have nothing left to do in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt and all of its expansions, but with so much on offer (and me in at more than 500 hours and counting), that might not come any time soon. Still, with the latest expansion -- Blood and Wine -- now out in the wild and standing as the final piece of content for the phenomenal game, a void is already beginning to form in my gaming heart of hearts.
At this stage we're just counting down the days until CD Projekt RED officially announce and unveil a standalone Gwent game. Which, for those that are unaware is the addictive, deep, strategic, and rewarding card combat game within The Witcher III: Wild Hunt. And now with a trademark filing and a leaked logo, it looks like Gwent: The Witcher Card Game is indeed happening!
