E3 is in full swing at the moment, and it pains us not to be there. Thus we are left having to feed from the scraps that falls from the table. And boy… even from the scraps we aren’t complaining! There is simply too much awesomeness happening in such as short time that it is impossible to highlight only a few things, but nonetheless, here’s some of the greatest game trailers that caught our immediate attention:
Second Son moves at astonishing pace, with new protagonist Delsin Rowe zipping around Seattle with flea-like agility. This is about as pure an action game as you can get . with Rowe flinging balls of fire around with reckless abandon; disappearing in puffs of smoke, Nightcrawler-style; pulling off outrageous special moves, and generally administering chaos on an epic scale. Take a look at the trailer below for more:
Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag
Below a cinematic trailer and carries the blurb, “It’s 1715 and pirates rule the Caribbean. Watch as Captain Edward Kenway, a brash and brutal pirate assassin, skilfully conquers his enemy at sea and uncovers a valuable, secret treasure.” Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag takes to the seas from October 29th in North America and November 1st in Europe for current and next-gen consoles.
We’ve been waiting for this game for a while, Ubisoft better have a success here, the Assissin’s creed franchise is in dire need of a winner.
Splinter Cell: Blacklist
Batman: Arkham Origins
Taking place before the rise of Gotham City’s most dangerous villains and assassins, the game showcases a young, raw, unrefined Batman as he faces a defining moment in his early career as a crime fighter that sets his path to becoming the Dark Knight. As the story unfolds, witness identities being formed and key relationships being forged.
Black Mask, Deathstroke, Deadshot, Bane, and the Joker?! ‘Nuff Said!!
The trailer that surprised us the most is Bungie’s new game Destiny. It looks like an incredibly awesome kick-ass game. During Sony’s E3 press conference they revealed a first look at some actual gameplay from Bungie’s new universe. This game has jumped to the top of our most-wanted games!
Final Fantasy XV
Final Fantasy is known for giving us the most amazing and breathtaking shots and action scenes ever to grace a gaming console.
The armed forces of Niflheim launch a devastating assault upon the Kingdom of Lucis, casting Crown Prince Noctis and his comrades out of their homes and into the fray. The engaging tale to follow draws audiences into an awe-inspiring world steeped in the rich storytelling traditions of Square Enix’s renowned First Production Development Team.
Here’s the trailer:
Dead Rising 3
This Dead Rising franchise has been awesome. I enjoy playing zombie games, and these are definitely some of the best. During E3 Capcom announced that the open-world survival horror series, Dead Rising 3, will launch exclusively on Xbox One this holiday season.
Not much is known about the game at this point, but it’s been created as an open world title for multiple platforms. Players will obviously be stepping in the shoes of Max Rockatansky, and that’s going to be fun.
Play as Mad Max, a lone warrior who must embark on a perilous journey after his Interceptor is stolen by a deadly gang of marauders. A reluctant hero with an instinct for survival, Max wants nothing more than to leave the madness behind and find solace in the storied “Plains of Silence”.
I’ve always been impressed by the Battlefield franchise, and as you’ll see, they are taking it to a whole new level of intensity. I love what I’ve seen from this game so far, and it looks like a must-own.
The game takes place in the year 2020, six years after its predecessor. The player is a character named Recker, “a member of a US special operations squad callsigned ‘Tombstone.’ His teammates include squad leader Sgt. Dunn, second-in-command Irish, and combat medic Pac.”
It was also revealed that Commander Mode will be back. This multiplayer position allows a single player on each team to help their teammates by giving them instructions through a top-down interface. The player can also see where their team is, as well as vehicles and more.
Not much is known about Quantic Dream’s PS4 game The Dark Sorcerer. All we know is, it looks amazing!
