Days before the start of E3, I made a few predictions on what will be unveiled/announced at the event this year. Time to see if I hit the mark or missed it by a long shot.
Microsoft will open their press-con with a Call of Duty game.
Their press-con started with a gameplay trailer for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare.
The Xbox controller will run out of battery in the middle of the Call of Duty demo.
Sadly, it didn’t happen this year. (I actually forgot which year it happened and with which Call of Duty title.)
Dragon Age: Inquisition will make an appearance.
A new trailer was shown during the Xbox press-con.
Assassin’s Creed: Unity will make an appearance.
A gameplay trailer was shown during the Xbox press-con featuring 4-player co-op.
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will make an appearance.
A gameplay trailer was shown during the Xbox press-con.
Sony will say something regarding The Last Guardian.
First came reports that the game had been cancelled, followed by a sharp debunking by Sony leadership. And then, Sony’s E3 press-con came and went without so much as a mention of the game. This worries me.
Sony will announce either a new Playstation 4 model or bundle.
No slimmer model but there’s gonna be a Destiny bundle that nets you a WHITE PS4!
There will be a new Tomb Raider game.
The new game is called Rise of the Tomb Raider. On a plus note, Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light will be getting a sequel (with 4-player co-op!) called Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris. Now this I did not expect!
There’s gonna be something regarding the new Uncharted.
It finally has a name (Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End) and the setting is pretty grim looking.
Square Enix will announce a new expansion for Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn.
No new expansion but they did release 2 new trailers. One was the inclusion of the new Rogue class and Ninja job advancement for Patch 2.4. The other is a teaser for Shiva, a new primal.
New trailer right here.
Mirror’s Edge 2 will make an appearance.
It did. Nothing solid yet but still something to get excited about. Here’s some footage.
We will get to see Star Wars: Battlefront in action!
No action, just some early in-engine footage at the end. More of a tease than anything else if you ask me.
MORE MONSTER HUNTER 4 ULTIMATE.
Sadly, nothing was shown during the Nintendo Digital Event.
Far Cry 4 will make an appearance.
Yes. Complete with ELEPHANTS and WINGSUITS.
Mortal Kombat X will make an appearance.
A gameplay trailer was shown during the Sony press-con.
Batman: Arkham Knight will make an appearance.
A gameplay trailer was shown during the Sony press-con. Batmobile? More like Bat TANK. Plus a friendly HELLO from a certain someone at the end.
Nintendo will announce a new Kirby game.
It’s called Kirby and the Rainbow Curse.
New information regarding the 40k MMO, Eternal Crusade.
Nope, nope and nope.
There will be nothing regarding Final Fantasy XV and Kingdom Hearts III.
Squeenix kept their promise and NOTHING was shown.
And here are some of the stuff that I didn’t expect to happen or get announced but did.
- ANOTHER FABLE GAME. What the frak? On the bright side, it looks good.
- Ori and the Blind Forest, a game so beautiful you could cry tears of joy.
- EA showed footage (sort off) for a new Mass Effect.
- LittleBigPlanet 3 is coming to the PS4.
- A Dark Souls successor is in the works.
- Grim Fandango is getting a HD remaster.
- Everyone should have seen this coming a mile away but Grand Theft Auto V is FINALLY getting a PC release.
- Dead Island 2 is happening. Well, shit…
- Final Fantasy Type-0 will be getting a HD remake for next-gen.
Thet’s all folks! Until next year.
