We've pulled together as many trailers from the E3 presentations so far, including the first look at CD Projekt's 'Cyberpunk 2077', the return of Master Chief in 'Halo Infinite' and the Doom Slayer in 'Doom Eternal', and much much more.
On top of all the trailers, there was also confirmation from Bethesda that - yes, of course, there's an 'Elder Scrolls VI' on the way - and there's also a brand-new IP called 'Starfield' that'll mix the open-world mechanics of 'Elder Scrolls' and 'Fallout' with space exploration, which has everyone all kinds of frustratingly excited about.
As for the trailers, 'Cyberpunk 2077' and 'Halo Infinite' appear to be making the biggest impact on social media so far.
'Cyberpunk 2077' is described a single-player, story-driven RPG where you'll get to design and create your own character filled with car chases, gun fights and lots of - well, obviously - cyberpunk tropes. No release date has been set as of yet.
'Halo Infinite' looks like a glorious return to what made 'Halo' such an iconic franchise. You've got utterly gorgeous graphics, that sweeping music and the sense of a huge world just waiting to be explored in a Warthog. 343 Studios are hyping their new Slipstream Engine and when you see this in 4K, it's going to be really something. The only question is when we'll get to see it as 'Halo Infinite' are saying it's "a long way off."
There's not much in the way of information to be gleaned from this announcement teaser for 'Starfield', but the fact that Bethesda Studios are making their first IP in twenty-five years tells you that it's a big, big deal. Space exploration and open-world RPGs haven't always worked and anyone who played 'No Man's Sky' when it first landed can attest to that. That said, Bethesda Studios know what's at stake here and they're not going to mess their reputation for the sake of it.
Speaking of reputation, Bethesda officially announced what everyone expected - namely, that 'Elder Scrolls VI' is now in pre-production. Beyond that, nothing to report. No word of setting or anything of the sort. Nothing. Still, though. It's 'Elder Scrolls' and we are morally obliged to mention it.
'Fallout 76' will be, according to Bethesda's Todd Howard, an always-online multiplayer RPG that you can play solo. Rrrriight? OK? Sure. The big takeaway is that character progression won't be lost when you die and Howard has said that it's a "softcore survival game," whatever that means. The world beyond will look much different from previous 'Fallout' entries, so we'll just have to wait and see how it pans out. A release date of November 14th has been set for 'Fallout 76'.
'Forza Horizon 4' looks, well, incredible. Quite frankly. More importantly, its photo mode is a work of sheer genius. This time out, dynamic weather systems and seasons are going to play a role in the game. 'Forza Horizon 4' hits on October 2nd.
'Devil May Cry' is back for a fifth time with more hacking, slashing, shooting, cringey dialogue, frosted hair tips and whatever else you're having yourself. The official release says that the game will be split via three characters, each with a completely different playing style and experience for each. Expect it to land some time in Spring 2019.
As expected, we saw some gameplay footage for 'The Division 2' as well as a better understanding of the setting and story. While there's definitely some differences there, the core mechanics look to be much the same - which depends on how you felt about the first one. The game's slated for March 15th, 2019.
We were huge, huge fans of the rebooted 'Doom' and to see it get a sequel is just fantastic. While there's nothing in the way of gameplay, it's definitely interesting to see where exactly 'Doom Eternal' will go with it. Our guess? More guns, more blaring metal, more violence, more blood. MORE.
Finally, 'Dying Light 2' was revealed and showed the intriguing ecosystem of the game's setting, all of which forks and bends on whatever action you take and give each playthrough a unique flavour. No release date has been set for the game as of yet.
All in all, it's been a pretty eventful day and with Sony, SquareEnix and the PC Gaming show set for today and Nintendo tomorrow, there's still plenty more to come from E3 - and we'll have a full round-up of the entire lineup and thoughts later in the week.
