Tuesday June 12th Los Angeles’ E3 2018, the most important world event in the video game industry, will officlally start. Even before Tuesday, however, from the previous Saturday, the most important software houses have organized several conferences in which they will show their novelties for titles already announced as well as take advantage of the opportunity to unveil unpublished titles.
But what can we expect to see at the upcoming Electronic Entertainment Expo in LA? Hardly we could bet and win on play casino online, except for clamorous twists, on new consoles’announcements. All analysts think that both Microsoft and Sony will wait until next year to unveil the new Xbox and Playstation 5 and then get them to the stores during 2020.
So, maximum attention for games. Saturday 9th Electronic Arts will “start the dance” with its usual line-up of sports titles (Fifa and Madden above all) together with some novelties on the highly anticipated Bioware’s Anthem and the new Battlefield.
Microsoft already confirmed that during its conference Forza Horizon 4 racing open world game will be shown for the very first time ever, but Xbox One players hope to see also the new chapters of Halo and Gears of War finally making the most of the great hardware power of Xbox One X.
Bethesda already made official Rage 2 in the past few days, of which we will certainly see more during the conference. There are also rumors about the announcement of a sequel for the appreciated reboot of Doom. Difficult to say if there will also be novelties for the series of Prey and Elder Scrolls, even if fans obviously hope for it.
Probably that of the Japanese Square Enix is one of the most anticipated showcases. No doubt about the fact that we will see many new features for Shadow of the Tomb Raider and Kingdom Hearts 3 but everyone hopes that updates will be shown also for the remake of Final Fantasy VII and the project dedicated to Marvel Avengers, that was missing for too long.
Ubisoft already anticipated that Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 will be shown at E3 but all gamers hope that Los Angeles will be the right stage to present also the new Splinter Cell and Watch Dogs 3.
Sony already confirmed that during its conference it will show some new features for Spider-Man, Ghost of Tsushima, Death Stranding and The Last of Us 2 but some rumors ensure also the presence of Bloodborne 2, Capcom’s Devil May Cry 5 and a new remaster signed by Bluepoint Games.
Nintendo will have Smash Bros for Switch as crown jewel together with probable news on Metroid Prime 4, Yoshi, Fire Emblem and Pokemon Switch. There are also rumors about a possible new enhanced version of Switch but we tend to think that this rumor will not be confirmed.
And then, of course, at E3 in Los Angeles surprises are always around the corner and the most unexpected ones, not rumored in advance, are the most appreciated by videogames and professionals. … Happy E3 to everyone! We are almost there!
