E3, the Wrestlemania of gaming shows (so to speak), is underway this week, and the big companies and publishers have been showing off exactly what they have in store for gamers over the course of the next year or so. We’ve been treated to everything from surprise announcements and console reveals to gameplay walkthroughs and tech demos; and to keep up with it all, we’ve rounded up the biggest and best trailers from each show for you to enjoy:
Microsoft’s Xbox E3 show was up first, and they came out swinging. We were finally given a look at Project Scorpio, Microsoft’s super-powered Xbox, now known as Xbox One X, along with a host of game reveals, including Forza Motorsport 7, Assassin’s Creed: Origins, and Metro: Exodus, among others.
Sony wasn’t far behind Microsoft and delivered what they promised their show would: games. The Japanese company used the Playstation event to reveal a bunch of new games, including The Evil Within 2, a PS4 version of Shadow of the Colossus, DLC for Horizon: Zero Dawn, and a closer-look at previously announced games like God of War and Days Gone.
Electronic Arts were always going to deliver some big things, and they didn’t disappoint. The powerhouse publisher revealed a new Bioware game called Anthem, which stole the show. They also gave us a look at the next Need for Speed, FIFA 18, and Star Wars: Battlefront II.
Bethesda had some huge games hiding in the wings, and the publisher gave them all the much-needed spotlight when their show kicked off. The Evil Within 2, Wolfenstein: The New Colossus, and Doom VFR were just some of the big reveals.
We already knew earlier this month that Ubisoft had a whole bunch of games lined up for a full reveal, including Far Cry 5, The Crew 2, and Assassin’s Creed: Origins. We got an in-depth look at those games in action, along with some surprise reveals, such as Skull & Bones – a multiplayer pirate game based on the naval combat from Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag.
