Sadly, I don’t have enough time to cover games very often, but it is hard to ignore the biggest games show of the year, E3.
There has been a huge number of press conferences and trailer releases already, with lots of games to get excited about, but I have cherry-picked my top 4.
For me, Cyberpunk 2077 is the most exciting game out of the bunch. Announced back in 2012 by CD Project Red, the creators of the Witcher 3, Cyberpunk 2077 is a post-apocalyptic action RPG with spectacular visuals and a believable game world rather than what to expect from the title. The game was revealed with no firm release date, though the game is scheduled to release on PS4, Xbox One and PC at the same time.
CD Project has confirmed no microtransactions, and free DLC, as well as the PC version, being DRM-free.
The trailer (above) looks awesome, and the only bad thing is we have no clue about the release date.
Elder Scrolls VI
Skyrim was released seven years ago, and I think I have played it more than any other game ever, deservedly so too, it is awesome.
The Elder Scrolls VI has no been officially confirmed to be in the works. It is very early days though so it is another project that we have no idea about the release date.
To keep us entertained until The Elder Scrolls VI is launched, Bethesda has been working on its first new IP in 25 years. Another game with not many details but it could well be Skyrim in Space, which works for me.
This technically isn’t one of my favourites as it is online only, but I do love fallout, and my past three choices have been woefully low on details.
Fallout 76 is entirely online, and it’s scheduled to come out on November 14th. It takes place in West Virginia, and it’s a prequel to the entire series and following survivors of the nuclear apocalypse as they exit their legendary bunker, Vault 76. Players are tasked with rebuilding their town — and the entire country — after Reclamation Day in the year 2076.
While it is playable solo, it is the concept of the game favours interacting with other players.
The game promises to be four times larger than Fallout 4
I will add one more bonus entry for pure mindless entertainment, you cant go wrong with the Just Cause series, and the new title, Just Cause 4, will arrive on December 4th on Xbox One, PS4 and PC. As usual, it is just as over the top as ever.
