We followed this year’s E3 exclusively, and have seen some pretty awesome games announced. What are the best E3 2018 games to keep a lookout for if you’re gaming on the PC?
EA and Bioware’s Anthem finally showed off more of it’s gameplay, and we now know it’s multiplayer focused. Releasing February 22nd 2019, Anthem is a modern day FPS shooter with RPG story telling akin to the Mass Effect series. The difference is the multiplayer aspect that works well with up to three other friends for the game’s main campaign mode. Players can choose different classes known as Freelancers who wear Javeling exo-suits with unique powers. Exploring foreign planets look and feel good, and it’s not just the flying and swimming we’re referring to. Combat is another plus point and it performs better than similar titles like The Division.
4. Battlefield V
Historical accuracies aside, this one feels like the biggest Battlefield game yet. In V, we’re heading back to World War II and get to see it from a different light. Done are the days of overusing Normandy over and over again in games. Available October 19th this year, there are several multiplayer modes returning. We have Conquest, Domination and Team Death match. Best yet, Operations mode from Battlefield 1 is also returning, where big matches are played over four in-game days. These battles cover other areas in WWII, such as Operation Market Garden in the Netherlands. Besides that, expect to see an in-depth story campaign mode, changes to classes, balance and more.
3. Cyberpunk 2077
Cyberpunk 2077 couldn’t be as different from The Witcher games. Studio CD Projekt Red’s next game shows us an exciting future in the world of Cyberpunk – a cynical future where capitalism and technology has changed the world for the worst. Players play in the shoes of protagonist V, who must traverse this huge open world with no loading times. Primarily an FPS game, it is definitely a departure from The Witcher, but it remains true to its RPG storytelling roots. The game has level up progression, skill-checks and definitely loot such as getting high-tech weapons and more.
2. Forza Horizon 4
For racing enthusiasts, look no further than Forza Horizon 4 from E3 this year. It’s big, gorgeous and offers a lot more than its predecessor. This open world racer is packed with exploration and racing, and the best part is you can switch seamlessly between single player and multiplayer, joining your buddies whenever they’re online for a quick race around the UK country side. Another fun mechanic is the dynamic season system, where summer, winter, spring and fall all take place in game periodically, drastically changing the landscape.
1. Fallout 76
But as far as the stand out game, we have to pick Bethesda’s Fallout 76. The game will be a prequel to all the other titles in the series, and it begins in West Virginia. The exciting thing about Fallout 76 is the multiplayer – for the first time ever, play with your buddies. You get to hunt new local folklore monsters, and of course build your bases and decorate it to your heart’s content. You still can enjoy the game solo, but online multiplayer will bring fresh PvP aspects to the Fallout franchise that could be awesome.
