The Five Biggest Games Coming To E3 2015
E3 is upon us, and with it a whole slate of AAA games from the top publishers and developers. It’s a big year, with some of the early lifecycle bugs shaken out of the Xbox One and PS4, developers ready to take full advantage of the new systems. There’s a whole lot of games coming this year, so expect a river of coverage coming up over the next couple of days. For now, here’s a preview of some of the biggest titles we’ll be seeing this week.
Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End –Naughty Dog’s treasure hunter epic is the jewel in the crown of Sony’s exclusives, with hero Nathan Drake currently adorning the front of the LA Convention center.
Fallout 4 – This one comes early in the show, premiering at Bethesda’s first ever E3 presser this evening. Fallout 4 is, in many ways, the followup to the Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim, as the next big open world game to come from Bethesda. Fallout takes place in 1950′s Americana tinged post-apocolyptic wasteland, where humanity at large has gotten a blank check to be as nasty and weird as it possibly can be, just like the player character.
Deus Ex: Mankind Divided – This might not be on everyone’s list, but it’s definitely on mine. Both the original Deus Ex and Deus Ex: Human Revolution rank among my favorite games of all time (there is another game of which we will not speak), and I’m eagerly awaiting to see what Eidos Montreal can manage with next-gen technology.
Halo 5: Guardians – Halo is to Microsoft what Uncharted is to Sony, and the pressure is on this massively popular series for its first full outing on the Xbox One. In this game, series hero Master Chief is being hunted by the UNSC for reasons that aren’t entirely clear yet.
Star Wars Battlefront – This is one of those long-awaited titles made finally possible with the sale of the Star Wars IP to Disney and the subsequent partnership with EA. This series dates back to 2004, but today’s machines are capable of a slightly larger scale than those of the day.
