Another E3 is in the books. After being canceled last year due to COVID, E3 returned this year as a purely virtual event. Hopefully, next year, E3 will again be both an in-person and a virtual event.
This year, several new games were announced. Here is part one of some of the best and biggest trailers from E3:
- Advance Wars 1+ 2: Re-Boot Camp
Advance Wars is back, re-imagined and rebut for the Nintendo Switch!
2. Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora
With a 2022 release date, this game should be coming out just in time to either capitalize or contribute to the success of Avatar 2. The trailer looks good but it doesn’t really tell me much about the game, other than it’s a playable version of Avatar. That should be enough for some.
3. Babylon’s Fall
This was a strange trailer for me. It looked good up until the combat started and then it didn’t look good at all.
4. Cruis’n Blast
A good racing game is something that I am definitely looking forward to.
5. Dead Island 2
After seven years of development, Dead Island 2 is finally coming out! Or is it? It’s hard to tell from this Jack Black-narrated trailer, which features a lot shots but not any actual gameplay or an actual release date beyond “coming 2021.”
6. Death Stranding Director’s Cut
I still haven’t been able to get into Death Stranding. During the lockdowns, I replayed Spider–Man, Miles Morales, Red Dead Redemption 2, and all of the Quantic Dream games multiple times. I even replayed the old EA Godfather games (Don of New York, baby!) but, somehow, Death Stranding just hasn’t been able to hold my interest. Maybe I’ll have more luck with the director’s cut.
7. Elden Ring
The trailer for Elden Ring looks great. This is what I wish the Babylon’s Fall trailer had looked like.
8. Evil Dead: The Game
All the trailer needed to win me over was Bruce Campbell. And it delivered!
9. Forza Horizon 5
‘As a fan of racing games, I’m definitely looking forward to this one.
10. Guardians of the Galaxy
If nothing else, this looks better than The Avengers game.
To be continued!
