E3 Highlights 2015


Social media has been exploding with new game announcements almost faster than we can keep up ever since E3 started. Of course, it wouldn’t be E3 without some awesome trailers. We figured, just in case you missed something, we’d list of some the announcements we are most excited about so far.

Assassin’s Creed Syndicate

Yet another AC title, yet somehow we aren’t tired of them yet. This time the setting is London 1868, and you play one of two characters that seem to be recruiting for their very own assassin’s guild. From the trailer it looks like we’ll be getting a grapple hook, horse drawn carriage, and a whole lot of the same AC sneaky assassination action we’ve come to know and love. Hopefully they have an ace up their sleeve to make this year’s installment stand out.

Dark Souls 3

The third and final installment of the ridiculously difficult Dark Souls series its on its way to PC early next year. The creator of the series, Hidetaka Miyazaki, will be returning to work on the final installment, after having little to no involvement in Dark Souls 2.

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided

Adam Jensen returns for another chapter of Deus Ex, slated to release early in 2016. The trailer shows a few new gadgets, including some kind of multi-targeting stun gun.

Dishonored 2

Dishonored 2 will be released in Spring 2016, featuring returning protaganist Corvo Attano, and his daughter Emily as playable characters. Both characters will have their own unique ability sets. The trailer highlights some of Emily’s abilities.

Final Fantasy 7 Remake

This one speaks for itself. They’re bringing back FF7. The only confirmed platform so far is PS4, but we think its fairly safe to assume we will see a PC release in the near future.

Ghost Recon Wildlands

Finally, what looks to be an open world Tom Clancy game! The trailer suggests we will be battling the world’s illegal drug trade, although it only shows us a mission in South America.

Mass Effect Andromeda

This is the one we’ve all been waiting for, let’s admit it. The trailer is more of a teaser than anything, as it doesn’t really reveal anything about the plot of the story or the main character, but that doesn’t make us any more excited for another Mass Effect game. So far, we’re looking at Holiday 2016 for release.

Mirror’s Edge: Catalyst

Last but not least, EA brings us another Mirror’s Edge, which stands out as a beautiful parkour based game, with little, if any focus on combat. We’ll be seeing a release some time in February.
