Oh geez. I didn’t even realize Bethesda was doing their show ahead of the actual start of E3 too! Guess I’ll be staying up late just to show you fine readers another 5 exciting upcoming new titles! (Just kidding, I’m always up this late)
#5: Dishonored 2: Death of the Outsider (Xbox, PlayStation, PC)
I’m a big fan of Arkane Studios and the Dishonored series, so I’m all for some more Dishonored 2, especially with as interesting sounding of a premise as this. I just hope they don’t break it into two halves like they did with the story DLC for the first game.
#4: Fallout 4 VR (PlayStation, PC)
I must confess, I still haven’t played Fallout 4 yet, but maybe that was for the best, because now I’ll be able to play it in VR! Maybe. We’ll have to see what playing a 200+ hour game in VR is like. I’m liable to go blind or something! It’s a very good sign for VR fans though, that big companies are willing to bring big name AAA titles to VR.
#3: Doom VR (PlayStation, PC)
Whaaaaaaaaaaaaat! Well, now I’m definitely going to go blind. This was probably the game I would have most liked to have experienced in VR and now my wish will come true. I just hope my stomach can handle it, as Doom required quite a bit of furious jumping, dodging, and running in order to survive.
#2: Wolfenstein 2 The New Colossus (Xbox, PlayStation, PC)
Well, this looks interesting. Wolfenstein 2 looks like it’ll have no shortage of the crazy, brutal combat we saw in Wolfenstein: The New Order, and a side order of wacky humor that you wouldn’t really expect in a story about Nazis winning the war and taking over America, but somehow it seems to work here. The October 2017 release date is quite a surprise too.
#1: The Evil Within 2 (Xbox, PlayStation, PC)
Woohoo! Finally, the sequel to the the first of the great horror games of the current generation! If the combat is as creepily challenging, and the story as fascinatingly complex, as the first one, then this will be quite the game indeed.
What a great start to this year’s E3. I’d be thrilled with just the games we’ve already seen today, but there’s still many more to come, including what should be a really good Sony conference tomorrow. It’s a hell of a time to be a gamer, I tell you.
