The Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) 2017 conference kicked off over the weekend and although it’s only been on for a few days, we’ve had plenty of exciting announcements about upcoming video games. Today’s blog takes a look at the best announcements of E3 so far.
The latest IP from the creators of the original Mass Effect trilogy, Anthem is a third person action adventure that doesn’t look a million miles from BioWare’s bestselling sci-fi shooter.
It’s set on a mysterious planet in the near future and sees players take on the roles of protectors of a walled city that provides refuge for its human inhabitants from the dangerous monsters and alien forces that wander outside the city’s walls.
Players are required to wear high tech exosuits to combat these threats which give them the ability to fly through the diverse and beautiful open world plus plenty of deadly firepower.
Anthem launches sometime in 2018.
Assassin’s Creed Origins
The latest entry in the long running Assassin’s Creed series appears to tell the story of the original members of the Assassin’s Brotherhood back in the times of Ancient Egypt.
Ubisoft’s most recent Assassin’s Creed games took place in bustling cities like 18th century Paris and Victorian London, so it will be interesting to see how Origins’ historical setting affects the series always present parkour mechanics.
Assassin’s Creed Origins is out October 27th.
Fallout 4 VR
Announced during the Bethesdaland event, Fallout 4 VR is, as the name implies a virtual reality edition of 2015’s Fallout 4.
It’s out for the HTC Vive this October.
