Ayeee…all those gamers out there. It’s here and it’s much more crazier this time, E3 2017 just wrapped up and there are a whole lot new game releases lined up this year. From Sony to Nintendo to Microsoft, all biggest games were talked about at the event. Electronic Entertainment Expo, commonly known as E3, is a premier event for gaming fans all around the world. It is the biggest gaming news expo of the year. This year it took place on June 13-15 at Los Angeles Convention Center located in the southwest portion of downtown LA.Tens of thousands of the best, the brightest and most talented pack are connected with the interactive entertainment industry.
Notable releases this year are:
- Metroid Prime 4: During the Nintendo spotlight, “Metroid Prime 4” received a swift 40 second trailer that covered up a little more than just the logo, developed for the Nintendo switch. It’s been 10 years since the last Metroid game, expected release is late 2018 but till then we can rejoice the fact that it’s finally releasing.
- Super Mario Odyssey: In company with ‘Legend Of Zelda: Breath of the wild‘, the biggest game shown at Nintendo’s Switch reveal event back in January was ‘Super Mario Odyssey’. In a striking trailer, Mario’s hat takes public attention as he swings it like a weapon, jumps on it for boost, or throws it to possess the enemies.
- In other news, the Switch’s rapid increasing library includes both Kirby and Yoshi platforms. As far as reinforcing the console’s offerings, they are pretty safe franchises to wheel out.
- The Big Nintendo’s presentation was short, and none of us were expecting any new announcements but the four releases made us more than happy. As for the last release, they jumped into an eight minute Pokémon themed presentation, where it revealed that arcade fighter Pokkén Tournament was coming to the Switch as a “Deluxe” package. Nintendo slipped a casual mention that the studio Game Freak is currently working on classic Pokémon RPG, but alas it won’t be ready for yet another year.
- Xbox One X: Microsoft gathered the last few pieces of the puzzle on Project Scorpio, it’s new supercharged Xbox console. Later the company revealed the official name ‘Xbox One X’ and it’s release date of November 7 for $499. The games it includes:
- Forza Motorsport 7 brought the true 4K resolution, and it would be a treat for those to show off a new 4KTV/Xbox One X combo.
- Metro Exodus was a sweet surprise. The third game in the Russian post-apocalyptic survival series looks amazing and this time around the journey apparently spans an entire continent.
- State of Decay 2 is just the same, just that it has few added features and bigger, keeping in mind how fantastic the first game’s open-ended take on zombie slaughter and base-building was.
- Crackdown 3‘s latest trailer has loads of Terry Crews screaming and laughing. Nobody other than him could be a better drill sergeant to psyche us up.
- There was an extended gameplay trailer for Sea of Thieves after it’s announcement done at E3 2015. The trailer displayed pirate themed MMO, with plenty of treasure hunt, musket battles and ship-to-ship cannon combat.
- Minecraft yet again is getting new updates. The blocky sandbox will soon receive 4K resolution on Xbox One, and is a quick move for it’s continued longevity. It’s becoming cross-platform which means players can jump in together regardless of the medium they are playing on,i.e. Xbox One, Nintendo Switch,Windows 10, iOS or Android(including Gear VR). PS4 hasn’t joined the party yet.
Sony’s E3 showing was just wall-to-wall games, the crazily awaited Last of Us Part II was out of sight, but the other reveals made up for this heartbreak.
- A short trailer of Uncharted spinoff, The Lost Legacy was put up with Chloe’s promotion to protagonist and accompanying Nadine Ross from Uncharted 4 to hunt down the Tusk of Ganesha.
- A new IP, Days Gone had similarities with Last of Us Part II, the game is all about sneaking around raiders, setting traps and luring zombie hordes.
- Call of Duty installment takes us back to the arena of World War II, so no real surprises except that it has multiplayer game play.
- Trailer for the fourth God of War displayed a combination of great storyline and gameplay with Norse monsters and bosses Kratos emerging with some heavy scenes between him and his son.
- David Cage’s next project, Detroit: Become Human displays where slaves begin revolting against their human overlords.
- Sony wrapped up the show with a brief look at the upcoming Spider-Man game. Spidy has new upgraded powers here to keep combat swinging at a moderate pace.
- Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle gameplay resembled the Firaxis reboot of XCOM. Here, the rabbids are transferred to the mushroom kingdom and have to work alongside Mario to bring peace.
- Assassins’s Creed Origins short trailer came out strong showing off the location in Egypt with vast open deserts, deadly swamps and period weapons.
