With E3 only a week away now, we at Geekknight, thought it was time to let everyone in our top rumors, reveals & games we are looking forward to at E3 this year.
We already know this is coming in 2017, will it be called the NX or something else, we haven’t a clue yet, but Nintendo has already stated it will be available in March 2017. Other than that nothing else is really known about Nintendo’s newest console, but E3 would be the perfect time to show it off and get the Nintendo fans foaming at the mouth for a new console (hopefully more power.)
Nintendo had a underwhelming release with the Wii U, while not technically a failure, the Will U is a long way from the former glory days of Nintendo, and even the days of the original Wii. Nintendo needs a big showing with this new console now more than ever, and E3 could be the perfect time to start flexing that old Nintendo Power.
PS4 Neo / Xbox One Scorpio
We’ve already been hearing about these console upgrades for awhile now, and now is the time for both Sony and Microsoft to show us what they’ve got coming. Both consoles could see big improvements in graphics and power with new graphics processing chips we’ve seen released from Nvidia as of late.
And with both of these upgrades all but confirmed by both Sony and Microsoft, I see no reason for both companies not to show these off at E3.
We already know PS4 VR is real and it’s coming, and it’s a safe bet to say Microsoft has something coming in this area as well.
With Microsoft working so closely with Oculus, could Oculus be supplying a rift for the Xbox one? E3 would be a perfect time to show us if they are. It’s pretty much a guaranteed bet that PS4 VR will be at E3 this year, but will Microsoft counter with their own VR. We shall see.
Red Dead Redemption 2
The Red Dead Redemption 2 rumor has been around for years, but with good reasoning. Red Dead was one of RockStars’ best selling games, and fanboys have been hammering for a sequel every since the first one was released.
This year the Red Dead rumors have been flying around like bloatflies on radiated marshes. It’s happening people, and all the evidence points to an E3 reveal by Rockstar. Hopefully they not only reveal it, but give us a 2016 release date.
Dice already revealed Battlefield 1 earlier this year, and we got quite a bit of information about the game.
We know it’s coming very soon (October of this year), and now it’s time for EA to show off some hardcore gameplay to the Battlefield Fandom, and that’s exactly what they are going to do. EA has already revealed it will be showing off 64 player gameplay at E3, and this makes little BGK happy deep down inside.
Another game we already know is coming, but E3 is the time for it to shine, the original Dishonored was kind of a surprise hit. And honestly was one of my favorite games of last generation.
The art style was so different from games out at the time, and the gameplay was marvelous, not to even mention the story. I’ve got high hopes for Dishonored 2, and I’m really looking forward to more information and more footage to keep me going until it’s release date.
Last on my list, is a game that was quite fun, but just didn’t seem to take off as well as it should have. Titanfall was good departure from the constant stream of war shooters that surrounded it at the time, and maybe the reason were seeing so many Sci-fi shooters emerging this year.
While Titanfall certainly wasn’t the first of it’s kind, it was done quite well, and had just the right amount of mech to human gameplay.
Titanfall 2; will definitely be at E3 this year, and rumors say it will be much bigger in scope and size in comparison to the first game. It may just end up stealing the show.
Only 8 more days now until E3, and while my list, maybe what I’m looking forward to at this point, who knows what the show will actually hold. We always end up with a few surprises at the show every year, so no one knows for certain what’ll steal the show, but the more the better.
Keep checking back with Geekknight.com for more information as it arrives, and we’ll have full E3 coverage.
