Every June, the Electronic Entertainment Expo takes over the LA Convention Center, and this year is no different. The 2015 edition of the show may be one of the most highly anticipated in several years, and it comes as the newest generation of consoles is finally settling in. We’re past the tech demos and experiments that happen early in a console’s life, and we’re ready to see the big games that inevitably follow. These eight games might not all be announced yet, but seeing them all at E3 3015 would make for one awesome show.
Don’t see the game you want at E3? Tell us what it is in the comments!
Star Fox (Wii U)
While a lot of people are paying close attention to the upcoming Legend of Zelda game for the Wii U, Star Fox is still out there. First shown off in an incomplete form at a pre-E3 event last year, Star Fox is actually set to release before The Legend of Zelda in 2016, and it’s also planned to be playable at E3 this year. It uses a cool dual-screen mechanic that uses the gamepad screen as the cockpit view, and lets you independently target enemies.
Rainbow Six Siege
First announced alongside the cancellation of Rainbow Six: Patriots, Siege is a somewhat different game. While it will retain the team-based gameplay that the series is known for, it will add in a focus on multiplayer, as well as destructible environments. Players will be able to reinforce walls and windows in an effort to keep the SWAT team from rescuing the hostages. Information is still limited, but we’re ready to see more.
Remedy’s upcoming suspenseful action title might not be coming out until 2016, but we’re more than ready to see some new details. A time travel experiment gone wrong leaves the main character, Jack Joyce, with the ability to manipulate time. He uses this power to try to escape from an evil corporation named Monarch Solutions. In a twist, you’ll also play as the game’s main villain, Paul Serene, who runs said evil corporation. Remedy went so far as to work with a CERN scientist to make sure the plot conformed to theoretical physics. That’s cool, but we really just want to play it.
Mass Effect 4
With the recent leak of what appear to be Mass Effect 4 details, the game is back in the news once again. While we’re taking the leak with an enormous grain of salt, we are interested in seeing just how Bioware will move the series forward in light of the backlash over the Mass Effect 3 ending. Combine that with the changes in personnel (most notably former series creative director Casey Hudson), and you’ll understand why we’re ready to get some official confirmation on just what is in store for the future of the series.
Tom Clancy’s The Division
The Division was easily the highlight of Ubisoft’s E3 2013 press conference, but since then, we’ve not gotten anywhere near enough information to keep our excitement level up. Another look came at E3 last year, but with the game slated for release at the end of 2015, this year’s E3 is the place that Ubisoft needs to give us something to get excited about. It’s an ambitious title, dropping both console and PC players into a massively mutliplayer post-pandemic world. It just remains to be seen if Ubi can pull it off.
The oft-rumored sequel to 2012’s Dishonored should be in the works somewhere, and since there’s nothing else they seem to be working on at the moment, I choose to believe they’re engaged with Dishonored 2. It’s been over two years since the original was released to critical and market success, and we’re ready to head back to Dunwall and see how the kingdom has fared since Corvo saved Emily and saw her become Empress (assuming you got that ending). It’s not announced, but this is one we expect to see soon.
OK, time to get serious. The ultimate in unannounced games for E3 2015 is, without question, Fallout 4. We’ve seen leaks that claim the game is real, and we know that Bethesda is having its first ever “E3 Showcase” (you can call it a press conference if you want). What better way to celebrate that milestone than by announcing a brand new game in the Fallout series? We don’t know what the setting, characters or anything of Fallout 4 might be. We just know we’re ready to find out.
Deus Ex: Mankind Divided
The teaser for the newest Deus Ex game landed like a bomb on the internet. It’s not surprising, as the trailer for Deus Ex: The Fall caused a similar furor in 2013 before it was learned it was a mobile title. But Mankind Divided looks to be everything fans of Human Revolution want. More augmentations, new technology, and more Adam Jensen. There’s no release date, and we know Next to nothing about what the game’s plot might be, but we do know one thing: We’re ready to learn a whole lot more.
