E3 Super Speedy Summary – All Of The Big Announcements and Trailers

So E3 is over and done with for another year and as always, was full of surprises and more amazing games than one can count. To make things a little easier, we have summarised everything noteworthy from the colossal games show and put all of the trailers in one place!

Sony:

The Last of Us Part 2.

Naughty Dog’s eagerly awaited sequel gave us a snippet of brutal, stealthy looking gameplay, as well as introducing us to Ellie’s girlfriend. Not much else was given and we are still waiting on a release date.

Ghost of Tsushima:

Stunning looking open world Samurai game with some brutal looking combat. The prettiest looking leaves ever put on a game! The gameplay gave off a Witcher vibe so looks like one to watch. No release date as yet.

Control:

Third person telekinetic shooter from the guys and gals behind Max Payne. Looks similar to Second Sight and Psi Ops back in the PS2 days, which were both a blast! Another one to watch.

Resident Evil 2 Remaster:

Yesssssssss! Arguably the best of the Resident Evil games (don’t @ me!), the remaster will land on January 25th 2019.

Kingdom Hearts 3:

It feels like half of the gamers that played the first 2 now have grandchildren to share it with….but the wait is over. Kingdom Hearts 3 will be released January 29th 2019.

Death Stranding:

Still looks gorgeous. Still looks weird. Still makes no sense.

Nioh 2:

The super hr Samurai slasher gets a sequel.

Marvel’s Spider-Man:

A better look at the web-slinger’s gameplay ahead of its release later this year.

Déraciné:

Japan Studio dip their toe into VR with a story driven adventure.

Microsoft:

Halo Infinite:

Master Chief returns! No gameplay but a very pretty teaser.

Ori and the Will of the Wisps:

The gorgeous 2D platformer gets a sequel and it looks, well, gorgeous!

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice:

Another gorgeous looking Samurai/Ninja game but with a more supernatural twist. Another one to watch.

Crackdown 3:

Over the top and silly as ever….but nothing with Terry Crews can be bad right?

Metro: Exodus:

The FPS sequel is looking as gorgeous and bleak as ever.

Forza Horizon 4:

Dynamic seasons were on show and for the first time in the genre, Forza Horizon 4 will have a shared open world. An interesting concept that could be amazing!

Cuphead – Expansion:

Not a sequel but Cuphead will be getting an expansion and a new playable character in the form of Ms Chalice.

Gears 5:

Play as Kait on a quest to decipher strange dreams in the most beautiful looking game of the franchise so far.

Gears Pop:

A cute looking mobile spin-off, although the gameplay is yet unknown.

Cyberpunk 2077:

A gorgeous trailer for the upcoming RPG set in the future from the minds behind The Witcher. Definitely one to watch.

Nintendo:

Super Mario Party:

The mini-game filled party title gets a sequel, and some innovative ways to play….if you have 2 Nintendo Switch’s.

Fire Emblem Three Houses:

The long running series gets a brand new game with new characters, early in 2019.

Super smash Bros. Ultimate:

The crossover brawler will feature new characters as well as every other character from previous games!

Daemon X Machina:

A pretty looking mech shooter with some epic looking battles. Possibly one to watch.

Starlink: Battle for Atlas:

Lead a group of interstellar pilots in building a ship and exploring a star system, with special guest Starfox! No gameplay was shown but the concept seems interesting.

Pokémon: Let’s Go Pikachu/Let’s Go Eevee:

A 3D Pokémon game….kind of….but not the one fans are expecting. A hybrid/crossover with Pokémon Go. (It’s easier to watch the video than me trying to explain it…).

Ubisoft:

Beyond Good and Evil 2:

The long-awaited sequel was present in the form of a stunning cinematic trailer, but little gameplay was shown. Will have to wait a little longer it seems.

Trials Rising:

The OTT motocross game is back! With a focus on multiplayer this time it seems…..I feel many friendships have the potential to be ruined on release of this game!

Skull and Bones:

Some early gameplay for E3 from the shared world multiplayer pirate sim. If done right, this one will be huge!

transference:

The creepy VR title looks interesting.

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey:

The next instalment for the action heavyweight, this time set hundreds of years before origins. I’m guessing Odyssey sounded better than Assassin’s Creed Origins Origins.

EA:

Battlefield 5:

The E3 trailer gave destructible environments and Battle Royale. What more can you ask for?

Unravel 2:

Yarny gets a friend! The charming platformer get’s a co-op mode.

Sea of Solitude:

A cel-shaded indie title centred around loneliness. It looks beautiful and sounds intriguing. Another one to watch.

Command and Conquer: Rivals:

A RTS on mobile based on the long-running series An interesting concept.

Anthem:

Another cool looking cinematic trailer and some very fun looking gameplay.

Bethesda:

Fallout 76:

Fallout with Friends!

Rage 2:

The crazy action game got a longer trailer at E3 to showcase how it’ll make your head spin!

Doom Eternal:

A teaser for the sequel that promises ‘hell on earth’.

Wolfenstein: Youngblood:

The sequel got a teaser and will be set in the 80’s.

Starfield:

A sci-fi game. Possibly. The teaser really gives nothing away.

The Elder Scrolls 6:

Again, the E3 teaser gave nothing away although I’m sure it has been analysed and picked apart by fans already!

Square Enix:

Just Cause 4:

Lots and lots and LOTS of explosions. Oh and weather. The sequel will hit later this year.

The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit:

Set in the Life is Strange universe, the game looks charming and seems to revolve around a young boy who can bring his stories to life!

Shadow of the Tomb Raider:

Lara is back in the third instalment of the excellent reboot. This time around, Lara gets to slather in mud by the looks of it!

Babylon’s Fall:

Nothing is really given away in the E3 trailer but based on the other games by developer Platinum (Nier Automata, Bayonetta), it is likely an action game:

The Quiet Man:

Another mystery with a very intriguing trailer. One to watch.

Misc:

Jump Force:

A huge looking anime crossover from Bandai Namco with pretty visuals and epic fights. Otaku unite!

Devil May Cry 5:

The Capcom series returns! Apparently a ‘True Sequel’ to DMC 4, the trailer looks impressive. I guess they’re just going to pretend the reboot didn’t happen…..

Dying Light 2:

Set 15 years later, the Zombie/Parkour hybrid from Techland looks bigger and better.

Phew! So that’s it. All of the big announcements and trailers from this years E3. What are you most excited for? Let us know in the comments section or drop us a Tweet!
