The slated schedule for this year’s Electronic Entertainment Expo is but a short few days away yet the Los Angeles venue is already packed with happenings which preclude the actual show. Games, as it appears, is the major highlight of these preliminary events. To those who are not aware, the Electronic Entertainment Expo or E3 is a yearly gathering in the entertainment industry which sought to showcase the latest trends in the business. As the place for all things gaming, it makes for the right place for publishers to show their developing title or for console makers to unveil their latest hardware. But, no, there is no announcement of the potential successor to any of current-gen’s console nor of another iteration to the existing. Plainly, it has been all about games. Bethesda The company name Bethesda has become a household name after garnering successes in most of its IPs. Its inclusion in the E3 event, therefore, is something to be expected, especially its revelations involving games. Things may have started off slow with Bethesda during the event but it only built up the momentum for some of the company’s big developing titles which started of with Rage 2, a game inescapably comparable to Mad Max. A sequel to 2016’s Doom was announced under the label Doom Eternal which seems to take place on Earth but with hell as its theme. Yet, how can Bethesda even forget about its another major title in the Fallout series with the developing title of Fallout 76. While the disclosure was already made during Microsoft’s keynote last Sunday, additional information was revealed which include the game’s slated release date and gameplay features. Lastly, something which some audiences did not see coming, the company also revealed the next potential entry in the Elder Scrolls franchise—the Elder Scrolls 6—through its short trailer Microsoft Microsoft took E3 2018’s center stage when it revealed developing titles after another—as much as 50 of them and 18 of which are slated to be day-one exclusives to both the Windows PC and Xbox One. While that number is a lot, the announcement’s real attention-getter are the developing big titles such as Halo Infinite, Gears of War 5, Forza Horizon 4, Crackdown 3, Kingdom Hearts 3, Shadow of the Tomb Raider, and Cyberpunk 2077. EA Setting aside the usual hate which the company gets for its business practices, EA is still a relevant publisher in the industry, commonly for its sports titles. True to its spirit as a quality producer of sports games, EA has announced its latest entry to the soccer and American football franchise with FIFA 19 and Madden NFL, respectively. Deviating from the sports and into first-person shooting genre, EA also revealed of the latest installment to the Battlefield series with Battlefield 5 which seemed to be designed with “Battle Royale” kind of gameplay in mind. Another highlight of EA’s proclamation also comes with a Star Wars title called Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order as set at a timeline between Episodes 3 and 4. Then, there was the disclosure for another developing title called Anthem with its early 2019 release. Lastly, the company also revealed its new service, Origin Access Premier—a subscription service where users could get a vast ocean of old and new titles from EA and other publishers.   The post Countdown to E3 2018: The Pre-Show Revelation Involving Games appeared first on ForeShop.net.
