E3 2018 Highlights Saturday and Sunday

Posted By: GamerDating - June 12, 2018


Each year we see the Electronic Entertainment Expo aka E3 hit the gaming scene with announcements which dwarf gaming news across all channels, and for good reason. Lined up are announcements which bring cheers, excitement, huge hype and sometimes just a sprinkle of dissappointment.

Saturday, June 9th

The event got started with a conference by Electronic Arts (EA) which gave us a better Battlefield V Trailer, information about how Battle Royale is coming to BFV. FIFA 19, Jedi: Fallen Order, Sea of Solitude, Anthem and a stick and a horse with Command and Conquer: Rivals.

Battlefield 5 Multiplayer Trailer:

FIFA 19 is set to come out 28. September 2018 and will be available on all platforms. Check out the trailer here.

Jedi: Fallen Order was announced, is set to come out in 2019 and features Jedi, lightsaders and takes place between Episode 3 and 4. No more details yet.

Sea of Solitude is set to come out early 2019 and first impressions say adventure/exploration game with some amazing stylistic art and a crazy trailer seen here.

Anthem info was pretty big, with information confirming and early 2019 release. Bioware say its not an MMO, but more akin to open world multiplayer with MMO sense quests... sooooo, they probably don't want to label it was a true MMO, but more like Warframe, Dauntless and other "hub" like multiplayer games.

4 classes, parties with 4 players with bases, crafting, looting, drop in and out coop and a balancer for level discrepencies for friends. 

Check out the new Anthem Co-op Gameplay:

And typically we wanted to see some dead horse flogged right?

Command and Conquer: Rivals is a new CnC game set on mobile... "command and conquer for the new generation".

Sunday, June 10th

Sunday saw us into the Xbox, Bethesda and Devolver Digital conference which gave us a huge swath of games. Halo Infinite, Fallout 76, Metro: Exodus, Kingdom Hearts 3, Forza Horizon 4, The Division 2, Cuphead, Dying Light 2, Battletoads, Cyberpunk 2077, Doom Etneral, Rage 2, Prey DLC, Elder Scrolls VI and some humour with the Skyrim: Very Special Edition. Sunday was a big hit.

Fallout 76 has been announced to be 4x larger than the Fallout 4. The theme is set to be all players, very few NPCS and a feature of survival and rebuilding. The most interesting is that it is set as a prequel to the other games, but still 25 years after the bombs. Fallout 76 is set to be in West Virginia Hills. You can see the teaser trailer released before the conference.

Metro: Exodus is set to release 2019 and E3 gave us a new Gameplay trailer:

The Division 2 was revealed to release March 2019, and announced some new features with a new city. Set in Washington DC with new mechanics with bosses with weak points, better travel and movement and a gameplay trailer.

Cuphead is giving us a DLC, Cuphead: The Delicious Last Course, Cuphead and Mugman are joined by Ms. Chalice for a DLC add-on adventure on a brand new island! With new weapons, new charms, and Ms. Chalice's brand new abilities

And did anyone know about Battletoads!?

We know nothing, other than a hint and a tease. Doom Eternal had a teaser trailer featuring some hit creatures.

Rage 2 was announced for Spring 2019.

The Elder Scrolls VI brought out a bit of a lame teaser trailer and announced very little.

The big hit has been CD Projekt Red (Creators of Witcher 3) who gave us a new trailer for Cyberpunk 2077 after 2077 days, and after a tease at the conference where they pretended to close the conference without any mention of Cyberpunk 2077, then BAM. Check out the trailer:

Finally check out the new Skyrim! Skyrim on the Amazon Echo
