10 Highly Anticipated Games For E3

Far Cry 4, Battlefield Hardline, Assassin’s Creed and Destiny were all showcased at last years E3. It’s amazing to think we are just a matter of mere months away from this years event. E3 is the event that has every Gamer and Gaming fan worldwide eagerly buzzing and anticipating what could be in store at this years expo.

We take a look at 10 games that will be highly anticipated ahead of this years event and some purely rumour. The event which takes place at the Los Angeles Convention Center between the 16th and 18th of June is the pinnacle of Gaming Expos and this year is sure to be no different. 

1. Fallout 4 (Xbox One, Playstation 4, P.C)

Bethesda are set to showcase some big games at E3 namely Wolfenstein The Old Blood, DOOM and Dishonoured 2 but the one most fans want is Fallout 4, rumours have been rife that Bethesda could announce Fallout 4 at this summers biggest gaming expo but Bethesda as of yet have neither confirmed nor denied that the iconic post apocalyptic game will appear in some form. Recent reports show Bethesda submitting their line up minus Fallout 4, but we haven’t given up hope that this was merely just a smokescreen and that there could be some kind of reveal or tease in Los Angeles.

Fallout 3 was a massive success after its release on the Xbox 360, PS3 and P.C back in 2008, 6 years later and it’s high time for a follow up with Fallout New Vegas not enough to quench most fans urges. Speculation around could see the game set in New England with Boston a possible destination.

2. Halo 5: Guardians (Xbox One)

Expected to feature heavily at this years show and announced at last years E3 Halo 5: Guardians is a direct sequel to Halo 4. Developed by 343 and published by Microsoft Studios. After E3 last year Corporate vice president Phil Spencer stated that the “Reclaimer Trilogy” had been expanded into a longer series of games, saying they didn’t want to limit the Reclaimer story within a trilogy”.

Halo 5: Guardians is an Xbox One exclusive and is centred around unexpected attacks on the colony worlds and the disappearance of Master Chief. Spartan Locke is given the task of hunting down Master Chief in a bid to save the Galaxy.

Two Adverts were screened after the Season 5 finale of The Walking Dead showing views from the perspectives of both Spartan Locke and Master Chief. Expect to see live gameplay for Halo 5 at this years event.
