2018 E3’s Pre-shows started this weekend, and for the most part they were pretty good, with the exception of EA who pretty much just said they were sorry for being greedy jerks, Battlefield would also have Battle Royal, and Respawn was making a Star Wars game with Jedi in it. This left the weekend to Microsoft and Bethesda. They did not disappoint.
Microsoft kicked off the show with Halo: Infinity:
Then ended with Cyberpunk 2077!
What was between those two massive trailers was non-stop game announcements. Most of them were not exclusive, but the message was clearly, “We have plenty of games to play!” Other big things were that yes they are indeed working on a new Xbox despite rumors, as well as a streaming service, and that they bought four studios (Ninja Theory!!) and are creating a new one. Also Forza Horizons 4 looks amazing!
After all of that hotness it was up to Bethesda, and while they had less games to show, they were all pretty amazing.
New standalone expansions for Prey and Wolfenstein, Doom
2 Eternal (AKA Hell on Earth), more Rage 2 with excellent digs at Walmart Canada, more info about the biggest Fallout ever 76 (AKA Fallout: The Division), and they ended it with a one two punch of STARFEILD!
And THE ELDER SCROLLS 6!!!
Of course they said Starfield is a next generation experience, and that The Elder Scrolls 6 doesn’t come out until after that, so who knows when they are coming out, but with Microsoft hinting about the Xbox Two being around the corner, we could see Starfield late next year and TES:6 in 2020. However, it may be a safe bet to add an extra year to each of those games, so 2020 and then 2021 respectively.
I will be watching what goes down today, but Sunday was a good day for games, and I am expecting the usual fireworks from Sony, so today should be just as good if not better.
