News from E3 2019 Part 2

In the previous article, we’ve talked mainly about Nintendo and CD Projekt Red’s announcements on E3 2019, and for good reason. Those two game companies have shown us that single player games still have a place in the online gaming time we live in today. Today, however, we’ll be covering the other games that have been announced on E3, most of which were a bit of a surprise for the fans.

Microsoft

E3 Minecraft Dungeons
Minecraft Dungeons

Microsoft has also made some pretty nice announcements this year. We got a release window for Halo Infinite for Xbox Project Scarlett, Gears 5 trailer, Blair Witch trailer with some gameplay, and Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga announcement for Xbox One and PC. However, something unexpected happened during Microsoft’s presentation. You may know that Microsoft owns Minecraft now. Well, they announced something called Minecraft Dungeons. That’s basically a Diablo 3 style isometric dungeon crawler game. From what we’ve seen during the presentation, the game looks amazing so far. It tries, and succeeds in keeping Minecraft’s graphics, but adds some cool looking effects and character stats. In addition, there’s a new version of Microsoft Flight Simulator for PC and Xbox.

Bethesda

Deathloop by Bethesda

We’ve come to expect great things from Bethesda these past few years. And this time, they haven’t disappointed either. Some of the titles they’ve announced look great so far. We were shown a trailer for Deathloop. If you ask me, the game kind of reminds of Bioshock Infinite, at least from the trailer. But still, it looks amazing and it seems like it will be very well paced for single player experience. Some of the other Bethesda titles shown are The Elder Scrolls: Blades, Fallout 76: Nuclear Winter, Ghostwire: Tokyo, Wolfenstein: Youngblood, Wolfenstein: Cyberpilot, and Commander Keen.

Ubisoft

Ubisoft’s For Honor

Ubisoft had a great presentation on E3, and the titles they have announced look great so far. However, it is still uncertain whether the games will look and feel like they did in trailers. We finally got The Division 2 we’ve been waiting for for so long. For Honor is coming to Xbox One, Playstation 4, and PC. Assassin’s Creed Odyssey is getting a large update, and Watch Dogs Legion has had its gameplay shown.

Conclusion

All in all, we’ve had another great E3 this year. Lots of new titles and sequels and something new to look forward to for the next couple of years!

News from E3 2019 Part 1

If you’re an avid gamer like myself, you have probably watched the E3 live streams these past few days. And just like every year, we got to see a bunch of great games from different developers. E3 never ceases to amaze us with their new announcements and presentations. This year was no different, in fact, this year we got to see some of the best games ever, in my opinion. Well, without further ado, let’s jump right into it.

Nintendo

E3
Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2

As always, Nintendo came out with some great games on E3. Their presentations were the best we’ve seen this year, aside from Cyberpunk 2077, of course, but we’ll get to that. When we heard about The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild a few years back, along with the Nintendo Switch release, the fans went absolutely wild. And this year was no exception. Nintendo has brought us a sequel to Breath of The Wild along with a new trailer.

We also got to see trailers for Luigi’s Mansion 3, Animal Crossing: New Horizons, Super Mario Maker 2, and Astrail Chain. A couple of other games that were announced, but still remain without a trailer are The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening, Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield, Resident Evil 5, and Resident Evil 6.

Take-Two Interactive

Finally, we got to take a deeper look into Borderlands 3, a long awaited sequel for this absolutely amazing franchise.

Electronic Arts

Nothing brand new from EA this year, to be honest. I think that at this point nobody is expecting anything special from EA anymore, after the whole drama with the Battlefront last year. But nevertheless, we got to see Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, Apex Legends Season 2, Battlefield 5: Chapter 4, The Sims 4 Island Living, FIFA 20, and Madden 20.

CD Projekt Red

Keanu Reeves in Cyberpunk 2077

Now, let’s get into the really good stuff. After The Witcher 3’s INSANE success in 2015, the fans have been patiently waiting for a new game by CD Projekt Red, and this year, we finally got to see more of it. Cyberpunk 2077 is looking amazing so far, with its neon-like cyberpunk style and insanely immersive gameplay. The trailer for Cyberpunk 2077 features the star of John Wick movie franchise, Keanu Reeves. The fans have gone insane since the trailer debut and most of us can’t wait for the game to come out! In addition to Cyberpunk 2077, we’re getting The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt complete edition.
