While E3 had just ended, the hype has only just began. E3 2017 showcased first looks, trailers, and hands-on in game action of a huge list of upcoming games. Below we will be going over my personal top 5 games that were showcased this year.
1. Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus
While I have not played the first Wolfenstien game, this trailer got me interested. The New Colossus builds on the alternate history Nazi America first presented in 2014’s Wolfenstein: The New Order, but makes it both sillier and more of a biting satire. This game seems to have a nice mix of hard-hitting action and fun characters mixed in with some funny moments.
While many are dubbing this "BioWare's answer to Destiny" this game makes me think of Destiny in a sort of Avatar style universe. This game visually looks very appealing however this gameplay shown didn't give us much in the way of any story. I am eager to look more into this game as more is revealed and I am excited to see what this huge open world shooter has to offer us.
3. The Evil Within 2
The Evil Within was an eerie and terrifying experience and the reveal trailer for it's sequel definitely hinted towards the second instalment to be just as scary, if not more so.
4. Destiny 2
As a long time fan of Destiny, I was personally very excited for it's reveal. The trailer shown at E3 was not the first Destiny 2 reveal trailer, rather a new one titled "Our Darkest Hour". The second instalment of the Destiny series is coming to PC which is sure to please a lot of gamers out there. The original games vanilla story was widely disliked and labelled as boring, however as the original games DLC's dropped it was clear Bungie was getting their act together so we can only assume they have gone all out on making Destiny 2 the best it can possibly be.
5. Assassins Creed: Origins
After taking a year off, Ubisoft are back with the next Assassins Creed game and it looks like taking that extra year was well worth it. The last AC game didn't seem to get a lot of great exposure or reviews and was forgotten about quite quickly. Origins takes us back to Ancient Egypt and highlights the beginning of the Assassins order and allows you to explore the vast open world that the game offers while also keeping the stealthy action elements the game is known for.
