E3 2018 Recap Part 2

cyberpunk-2077-lead

E3 2018, the world’s biggest annual video game showcase, came to a close on Wednesday evening of last week at the Los Angles Convention Center in L.A.

It proved to be another stellar event and featured a whole host of exciting trailers for some of the most hotly anticipated video games set to release on home consoles and the PC over the next 12 months.

We’ve rounded up the most talked about trailers from E3 2018 for your viewing please, and you can find part 1 of this very special blog here.

Cyberpunk 2077

CD Projekt RED’s next game after the critically acclaimed The Witcher 3 is the equally ambitious Cyberpunk 2077, a first-person action adventure adapted from the tabletop game, Cyberpunk 2020.

Inspired by the likes of Neuromancer and Blade Runner, Cyberpunk 2077 puts players in the shoes of low-ranking mercenary V as they attempt to move up the social ladder in the futuristic setting of Night City.

Cyberpunk 2077 is scheduled to release at some stage in 2019 for the PS4, Xbox One and PC.

 

Death Stranding 

Sony finally released a gameplay trailer for Hideo Kojima’s new game Death Stranding and it’s safe to say we’re still none the wiser as to what’s going on in this game.

We see protagonist Sam (played by The Walking Dead’s Norman Reedus) transporting cargo across the pretty spectacular-looking landscape before running into some ghostly apparitions that appear the game’s main enemy but as ever, the reasons for his actions are stepped in mystery.

Death Stranding is expected to launch for the PS4 early next year.

 

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey

Last year’s Assassin’s Creed Origins successfully reinvented the long running series, providing players with a massive Egyptian sandbox to play in and a rejigged combat system that’s both more fluid and harder hitting.

Ubisoft is evidently eager to capitalise on Origins’ success as the publisher announced the follow-up, Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, during its event at this year’s E3.

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey is set in Ancient Greece and will likely feature an epic story centered around the warring states of the time, in particular Sparta and Athens.

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey releases for the PS4, Xbox One and PC on October 5th.
