We’re just a day away from E3 2016, and continuing our pre-E3 coverage, we thought now would be a great time to talk about some of the games we’re looking forward to seeing at the trade show. There’s a lot to be excited about, many of which didn’t make the list!
Battlefield 1 is probably one of the games that a lot of people are most excited for. Why? Because rather than go further into the future as their competitors are doing, DICE decided to take it back into the past. It might be an alternate past, but it’ll still be cool to see how that turns out.
That game will of course be making an appearance at E3 this year, including a massive demonstration during EA Play that will pit a number of celebrities and content creators against each other. Marshawn Lynch and Richard Sherman, along with a number of rappers like Snoop Dogg, The Game, Lupe Fiasco, and Wiz Khalifa will all be taking part in a 64-player multiplayer match that will be streamed on June 12 at 2 p.m. Sounds awesome, right?
Mass Effect Andromeda
Mass Effect is one of the most beloved franchises of all time, thanks to the phenomenal trilogy released last generation. Sure, fans had some problems with the ending, but Andromeda promises to be the start of a new trilogy. That means new characters, and a story that isn’t tied to Commander Shephard.
We got a trailer for the game last year, but it’s been a year and we haven’t seen any actual gameplay. The game has since been pushed back to 2017, but hopefully we’ll get an idea as to how the game will look in action.
The Last Guardian
Until last year at E3, everyone thought that The Last Guardian was dead. Now the game is shooting for a release later this year, so I wouldn’t be surprised if we see a new trailer and gameplay.
No Man’s Sky
We’ve seen quite a bit of this game since it was announced, but now that the game has been delayed until August, it seems that we’ve still got a bit to wait before it gets released. Still, given the hype, I wouldn’t be surprised to see it get a new trailer.
Even better if we get to get our hands on it. With a release date just two months out, I don’t see that being much of a problem.
Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare
Call of Duty might not be the most unique game on this list, but the franchise has provided a consistent level of entertainment throughout the years. Maybe not a lot has changed, but we’ll all buy it anyway. It’s the ubiquitous first person shooter, and frankly, a lot of fun to play with friends.
Besides, even if you don’t like the multiplayer aspect of the game, the series has done a good job telling stories since Modern Warfare. This time around they’re getting the one and only Kit Harrington, who you may know as Jon Snow on Game of Thrones, as the main villain of the story.
Sure, it might seem like they’re banking on celebrities at this point, but those games make plenty of money to do so. Besides, who doesn’t love Jon Snow?
Those are the core games we’d like to see at E3 2016, what are some of the games you’re looking forward to seeing? Let us know in the comments or on social media.
