E3 this year surprised many gamers, including myself, with all the games that will be coming this year and next. Below I have picked out a few of the titles that I will personally be keeping an eye on. I can’t wait for this year to come to a close and 2015 to begin, gamers all around the world should be excited at what developers are offering.
Little Big Planet 3
Little Big Planet 3 is packed with lots of new features including new friends that Sackboy can interact with, all levels from LBP 1 and 2 will also be available to play on the PS4 with updated graphics.
Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End
Fans of the series have been waiting for a fourth installment of this amazing series ever since the release of the third game, I know I have, and now we’ve got confirmation from Naughty Dog that Nathan Drake will be on our screens at least once more. The trailer didn’t reveal much about the game, but the subtitle A Thief’s End could suggest many things, I just hope it’s nothing bad.
Rise of the Tomb Raider
Out of all the titles I expected to get sequels or prequels, Tomb Raider was not one of them. Don’t get me wrong though, I loved the reboot and did want the team to create a second game, but I didn’t expect it to be announced so quickly. Like Uncharted 4, the trailer didn’t give many details away, but Lara’s adventure this time around will include some tombs which I’m sure she’ll be up for raiding. I’m also hoping that the developers will not include a multiplayer this time around.
I love a good racing game and Ubisoft’s The Crew seems to have both the racing and player interaction parts of the game down to a tee. With an open world which doesn’t require any loading times, you’re free to roam either by yourself or as part of a crew and do what you please, when you please. This could truly mean the start of next-generation racing games, extraordinary and enormous racing games!
Far Cry 4
It’s a new Far Cry game, what more do you want me to say? It took me a couple of tries to get in to Far Cry 3, but once I finished the experience I was left wanting more. News locations, new villains and new weapons mean there is absolutely no reason to not get excited.
I didn’t expect any Nintendo games to catch my eye this year, as whilst I own a Nintendo Wii U console, I don’t tend to play many games on it. The fact that Nintendo announced Splatoon was a huge surprise, a completely unique multiplayer title is something I’ve been waiting for and now I believe I can finally give my Wii U the love it deserves. Play as a human and a squid and ink the place up, what more could you want?
Tom Clancy’s The Division
I’ve been a fan of Tom Clancy titles for a couple of years now and Ubisoft always manages to create something worth playing. This time around you’re part of a special agency in New York City that is tasked to combat opposing factions in a city lost to a pandemic. Co-operative gameplay seems to be a major aspect of most games at this years E3, needless to say it’s something I’m welcoming with open arms.
This is just the tip of the iceberg as far as games announced at E3, so if you have a particular game or a list of games that you would like to play or keep an eye on, leave them in a comment below!
