With a release date of September 14th, 2018 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC, today comes the first look at Shadow of the Tomb Raider. The epic conclusion to the Tomb Raider trilogy. Because, yeah, of course it's a trilogy.

Dropping the "of War", came the inevitable Gears 5 announcement at the Xbox E3 briefing early this morning. Although expected, it still impressed thanks to a look that feels a lot fresher than Gears of War 4 with new enemies, environments, and wonderful detail. Plus, a new focus. Also announced for PC, the XCOM-inspired Gears Tactics from UK studio Splash Damage.

Because apparently it's a competition now. In a very stylish move, CD Projekt RED "hacked" the Xbox E3 briefing to debut the first in-game cinematic look at its followup to The Witcher 3 - Cyberpunk 2077. Set in America, and in the future, it looks, well, even better than we could possibly imagine.

At the Xbox briefing there certainly wasn't a shortage of impressive post-apocalyptic worlds. From Fallout 76 to Metro Exodus. But perhaps the biggest surprise came with the Dying Light 2 announcement, and that its narrative was being shaped by veteran designer Chris Avellone (Fallout 2, Fallout: New Vegas). Translation - it looks amazing.

After the winter in Manhattan of The Division proved to be one of the most visually iconic places to explore this generation comes the full reveal for Ubisoft's The Division 2. Set during the summer, in Washington DC, the new setting and seasonal weather sets the scene for what looks to be an improved co-op experience.

And a huge open and fully online world - digital Britain is the new setting. Anyway, thanks for the memories Drivatars. It's hard to imagine that in 2018 one of the most impressive game demonstrations would be a racing title with real cars. But even that sells Forza Horizon 4 short - the new dynamic seasons are truly breathtaking.

Although the release date has been pushed back to February 22, 2019 for Xbox One and Windows 10 - today we got a new look at Crackdown 3. And yes, after last year's lackluster presentation it's now looking a lot better. Impressive and huge animated worlds and the iconic over-the-top action that made the original a classic.

Okay, ever since this made its debut on the Xbox stage last year we've been waiting patiently to see more of Metro Exodus - 4A Games' post-apocalyptic shooter. And, well, it's hard to be disappointed with the gameplay trailer. In fact, chalk up our response as the exact opposite. This looks incredible.

From Software has quickly become one of the premiere game developers in Japan, and early this morning came the announcement of something new from the studio with Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice. A supernatural action game set in feudal Japan where it looks like you take control of a Samurai - resurrected to seek revenge.

Looking stunning in 4K on Xbox One X hardware comes a new trailer for Microsoft's charming Ori and the Will of the Wisps. Making an appearance at the Xbox E3 Briefing in trailer form we get to see some truly beautiful art direction.

At the Microsoft Xbox briefing Bethesda Game Studios and Todd Howard was on hand to debut a new look at Fallout 76. Confirming that it is indeed a prequel and that it will be set in West Virginia. Also, the map size will be four times that of Fallout 4 - making it the biggest game in the Fallout universe to date.

Developed by 343 Industries, utilising the new Slipspace Engine. Which is a fancy way of saying this looks impressive running in-engine. Although details are pretty slim, players will once again take control of Master Chief on what is being dubbed his greatest adventure yet. Humanity, naturally, hangs in the balance.

Details on what is being dubbed Battlefield Royale are still under wraps, with more details to emerge later in the year. All we really have to go on is that it will feature core Battlefield elements like destructible environments, team play, and vehicles. The latter of which are making their way into the still mysterious Call of Duty Battle Royale mode.

"When humans get too lonely, they turn into monsters." Powerful words that also serve as the tagline for Sea of Solitude, the upcoming EA Original release from Berlin-based studio Jo-Mei. Announced as part of EA Play earlier today, Sea of Solitude looks impressive in its debut.

Announcing the existence of a new game and then casually dropping the "oh, and it's available right now" is one of our E3 guilty pleasures. With the Unravel Two reveal during the EA Play conference this morning, which impressed thanks to its new co-op focus, comes word that yes it's available right now.

A while back we learned that Respawn was working on something Star Wars. With the studio made up of Call of Duty veterans and responsible for the excellent Titanfall series, there's definite buzz surrounding what it could be. At EA Play early this morning we got confirmation of both a title and release window.

As noted by EA head-honcho and possible android sent from the future to perpetually apologise for loot boxes in Star Wars, Andrew Wilson. Our one response - no. Making that slightly more polite - no thanks.

Okay so for the most part the EA Play conference was, well, mostly terrible. Not in the games they had to talk about but in the ways in which they chose to do so. Talking about a game before a trailer? Yeah, the opposite of how it works for something we already know about. That being said, we're still super excited for Anthem. BioWare's shared world shooter that looks incredible.
