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 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.
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 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.
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!
