By the time you’re reading this E3 will be over and you should be basking in the glory of mind blowing announcements and new titles.Â As I’ve said before, much of what was up and coming had already been announced before E3, so the most anticipated announcements would be the inevitable surprises.
Here are the biggest E3 announcements up to the time of publication:
The Last Guardian
Very, very long delayed, this Sony title seems to have rumbled back to life. Set to be released next year, it’s a cross-platform adventure featuring a relationship between a boy and a mysterious giant creature, puzzles and adventure.
Bethesda’s very highly anticipated post-nuclear holocaust RPG series, the big surprise is that it’s being released this year in the fall. Excitement!
Final Fantasy VII
This classic is being remade for all platforms, but starting with the PS4.
One of the bigger surprises of E3, this was info was ‘leaked’ and very warmly received. The story continues from the first instalment and suggests that you can play as female protagonist, Emily (who appeared in the first game) and the original hero, Corvo.
Also another surprise (though passingly mentioned last year), it’s cross-platform and redesigned for more open gameplay in sandbox-style environments that offer multiple approaches to any one scenario – a format that continues to gain popularity over the linear version.
In other news â€“ Justice League Makeover
For you superhero fans, a new take on the DC universe has been produced thanks to Machinima and DC. Justice League: Gods and Monsters Chronicles animated movie is set for release next year, but 3 short films have already been made and are free to view on YouTube. We see very different versions of Superman, Batman and Wonderwoman in an alternate superhero universe that entertainingly teases the upcoming movie. Neither Batman nor Superman (with a goatee) have capes, Wonderman ditches her yellow and blue bikini and picks up a sword – oh and Batman is LITERALLY a creature of the night.
