Electronic Entertainment Expo is every gamer’s most anticipated gaming event each year, where it shows all of the biggest announcements and games set to release in the near future. It seems that most of the games in E3 2018 we’re about to highlight will have closer release dates than we expected! The list we’re about to show you are something that we agonized over the weekends because there were too many great games to choose from! Do bear in mind that the ranking and arrangement does not matter in this case.

Resident Evil 2 Remake

What is it: The reimagining of the classic PlayStation 1’s Resident Evil 2 but with a more modern take. Fixed camera angles have been replaced with an over-the-shoulder perspective. There was a fan remake of the game titled Resident Evil 2 Reborn using Unreal Engine 4. The fan project by developer InvaderGames has been asked to pull the plug by Capcom when the latter announces that it’s been working on an official Resident Evil 2 Remake. As revealed by InvaderGames, the developers have been invited by Capcom prior to the shut down of the project to discuss further ideas. It has been implied by InvaderGames that they too have been working on the official remake together with Capcom, and boy the trailer and gameplay did blow us away!

Marvel’s Spider-man

What is it: Playstation 2’s Spider-man 2 was the best superhero game at the time before Batman Arkham games take over the crown of superhero games. The developer of Batman Arkham games, Rocksteady has been noticeably absent from E3 this year despite rumors that it has been developing a Superman game. It is up to Insomniac Games this year to take back the crown for ol’ Spidey as the story and gameplay elements for Spider-man has never looked so good!
Platforms: PlayStation 4
Release date: September 7, 2018

Ghost of Tsushima

What is it: Sucker Punch Production is widely known for its Infamous and Sly Cooper franchise. Ghost of Tsushima is a very different genre and setting to its action-adventure counterpart and so far it looks beautiful! The game revolves around the last samurai Jin, taking place on the Tsushima island during the first Mongol invasion of Japan. Player need to master the way of the Ghost to defeat the Mongol forces and fight for the independence of Japan.
Platform: PlayStation 4
Release date: TBA

What is it: Bethesda Game Studio’s latest offering in the Fallout universe, Fallout 76 is an online multiplayer “softcore survival” game takes place 25 years after the Great War. Which means the game is the first chronologically in the Fallout timeline. According to Todd Howard, Fallout 76 is four times the size of Fallout 4, so expect a lot of exploring to do! The game has been confirmed to have no interactive NPCs, almost all of characters met by the player character in-game will be those of other players.
Platforms: Windows PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One
Release date: November 14, 2018

The Last of Us Part II

What is it: Part II takes place five years after where the original left off. Ellie is all grown up and all out of love. Aside from the existing brutality of trailers for Part II, sadly there’s not much else to go on. We’re excited to see future developments from Naughty Dog considering how awesome the first game was!
Platforms: PlayStation 4
Release date: TBA

Cyberpunk 2077

What is it: CD Projekt RED, the minds behind the critically acclaimed The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, has served us a new gameplay trailer of its much anticipated Cyberpunk 2077. Fans have been clamoring for an update regarding the game ever since the first teaser dropped five years ago. The game is an RPG played in the first-person perspective, with third-person in vehicles and cutscenes. CD Projekt has been hush-hush about the game’s actual release date, stating that the game will only release “when it’s done”.
Platforms: Windows PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One
Release date: TBA.

Death Stranding

What is it: To be honest, we still don’t know what exactly it is. However, the latest gameplay trailer is shedding some little light on the game as a whole, or did it leave us with a lot more questions than before? After the split with Konami in 2015, Hideo Kojima has been given free reign by Sony on his game. It seems that we will be seeing a game that is unlike other games out there, going against the mainstream genre of gaming!
Platforms: PlayStation 4
Release date: TBA

Ori and the Will of the Wisps

What is it: The sequel to Ori and the Blind Forest, this Metroidvania sequel is just breathtaking to look at with amazing visuals. In addition to the challenging platforming of the first game, Will of the Wisps adds weapons to the gameplay, further enhances player’s experience and the tone of the game.
Platforms: Windows PC, Xbox One
Release date: 2019

Devil May Cry 5

What is it: After the divisive reboot that was DMC: Devil May Cry, Capcom has decided to go back to the original Devil May Cry franchise. Taking place presumably after Devil May Cry 2, which is the last of the storyline chronologically, we see a more mature Nero from Devil May Cry 4, and older looking Dante. We expect more updates heading our way after the initial reveal in this year’s E3.

Release date: 2019
