The world’s most exciting gaming convention might be a couple of months away, but anticipation is already building up. Rumours about the E3 2017 convention are getting hotter and there are plenty of games we just can’t wait to see. So, what are some big game announcements to expect at E3 this summer? Let’s have a sneak peek at the hype!
Red Dead Redemption 2
Probably one of the most anticipated games in E3 will be Red Dead Redemption 2. Rockstar Games teased gamers on Twitter earlier this year of things that might be to come and fans can’t wait to see the game. The first game is still one of the best games on Xbox 360 and gamers of all types have been looking forward to this title release.
EA has announced that it is going to come up with a sequel to its controversial game Star Wars: Battlefront. The trailer, along with more information are surely going to feature heavily at E3. Now, the first game had a mixed reaction, dividing the players to those who liked it and those who didn’t. It’s interesting to see what EA has done in terms of improving the gameplay, adding more excitement to the maps and so on.
Hideo Kojima’s new game might not have the kind of mass appeal that some other games in E3 will, but it will draw its support and excitement. We don’t have much information about the game, but it would be a huge shock if it doesn’t feature at E3 this summer.
The Last of Us Part 2
We already have seen a brief look at the Naughty Dog game but E3 should bring fans something more to look at. The first part of the Last of Us was a huge hit and the post-apocalyptic world of zombies is unlikely to disappoint this time around either. So far, not much is known other than that the game is a sequel. The first trailer had Ellie playing the guitar so she might be the heroine this time.
Super Mario Odyssey
Mario fans are finally going to be treated to something a bit different with Super Mario Odyssey. Our favourite plumber is having a makeover with new exciting worlds to explore and new mechanics to try. The game is looking modern and fun but E3 will hopefully give us more in-depth gameplay to make the final decision on how hyped we should be about the game.
Destiny is another relatively controversial game that appeared with plenty of hype but didn’t quite catch the love of gamers. Bungie has been releasing DLC updates to Destiny in the past but it seems now is the time for a complete overhaul. There’s, however, nearly no information on what to expect from the game other than that it should be out Fall 2017. This means the trailers should be huge at E3.
Shadow of the Tomb Raider
Square Enix might also treat fans by releasing information on Shadow of the Tomb Raider. We’ve only seen a sneak peek in the form of a photo so far – meaning that E3 is the perfect place for revealing a little more. The game will be the last in the trilogy reboot and there are high hopes for it to deliver another fantastic Tomb Raider experience.
We also need to mention the expectations for VR games. E3 will undoubtedly have plenty of VR titles coming up – it’s expected that Fallout 4 and Doom are going to pop up on VR this year. Could another game developer or technology giant be developing its own VR headset? We know Asus has been thinking about it and Oculus Right might be getting a complete overhaul with Oculus Rift 2.
