It’s that time of the year again where publishers and game developers got together to announce the newest and greatest games that will be released sometime in the future. Though, this year’s E3 was a little different, as for the first time in its 23 year history, E3 2017 has allowed fans to attend the event. This is arguably the biggest event on the gaming calendar and 15 000 fans had the chance to join developers, bloggers, the press and industry giants for a front row seat to the latest games and gaming tech announcements and previews. This is our round up of the best gaming titles that we think are going to be well worth playing in the near future.
Anthem is a shared-world action RPG from the makers of Mass Effect and Dragon Age. From the reveal trailer alone, we can already tell that it is going to be an amazing game. We aren’t taking anything away from their current title Mass Effect Andromeda, but this game looks like it will eat it for breakfast. The only downside is that we will have to wait until Fall 2018 for its release.
Far Cry 5
If you played any of the previous Far Cry games then you will know that the games have varied a lot over the years. Their crowning achievement was Far Cry 2, but it kind of went downhill from there and all the way into the pits with Far Cry Primal. Though the trailer for Far Cry 5 has hope written all over it, it looks like they will be bringing back some of the Far Cry 2 elements and offer us a far more organic game than the previous titles. The release date has been set for February 27 2018.
Star Wars Battlefront 2
It’s been almost two years since the release of the first game and while many of us had hopes for the game to be amazing, it kind of left us a bit blue and the servers soon started looking more like a ghost towns. Not letting this get them down, the guys and girls at EA went back to the drawing board and have reworked many of the game play mechanics that annoyed us in the first game. From the gameplay trailers that we have seen we can say for sure that we are super excited for this game and that has nothing to do with the fact that we are huge Star Wars fan. Did I mention that there will be no Season Pass, yes – No Season Pass! The release date has been set for November 17 2017.
Total War: Warhammer 2
Now this one is more due to its cult status than anything else and sees the super popular Total War franchise picking up the classic table top game Warhammer for a second time. No, this is not Warhammer 40K, it is the classic version of the game with dragons and knights and so forth. It hasn’t been that long since the first one, but the Total War franchise is still one of the very best strategy game franchises out there and this should be a great title to add to their collection. The release date has been set for September 28 2017.
Assassin’s Creed Origins
Finally we have Assassin’s Creed’s latest chapter, Origins. This will take us all the way back to the beginning of the assassins’ guild and their founding members in ancient Egypt. We will be treated to a handful of the familiar game play mechanics of the previous titles and a new drone-like hawk for scouting new areas. There will also be new boss battles, which should make for some entertaining game play. Overall, Assassin’s Creed Origins is set to be another great title for the franchise and will be released on October 27 of this year.
Wrapping It Up
This concludes our out take from this year’s E3 event for the PC market and from what we have seen, we are hoping that all of these games are going to offer us hours of fun in the future. Now might be the time to consider a new gaming laptop to play all of these amazing games on higher settings.
