Watch Dogs: Legion

Futuristic London is in turmoil following Brexit and the uprising of a totalitarian regime in this open world action game.

This sequel to Watch Dogs 2 will allow you to switch between any character you see in the game. This just so happens to include a magnum wielding granny. Seriously.

The political themes within Watch Dogs: Legion are bound to stir up some controversy along the way.

Marvel’s Avengers: A-Day

It’s finally here. Hot on the heels of the final Avengers movie, comes our first look at the video game version of the classic superheroes.

The game is being made by Crystal Dynamics who has recently been tasked with bring Lara Croft back to life with the ace new Tomb Raider games.

We’re expecting it to play out like the excellent Batman Arkham series, with plenty of head-cracking action throughout.

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order

Unlike a majority of new games shown at E3 so far, this new Star Wars epic depicts actual gameplay footage. It promises to deliver the most unique and authentic Jedi experience yet.

Set after Order 66 is initiated – y’know where lots of the galaxy was blown to bits – Padawan Cal Kestis is tasked with bringing down the Empire at all costs.

There’s lots of fan pleasing combat to be had, and we’re particularly impressed with the lightsaber action we’ve seen so far. The force is strong with this one.

Elden Ring

Missing Game of Thrones already? Fear not, as George R.R. Martin has teamed up with legendary developer FromSoftware (Dark Souls, Sekiro) for a new type of adventure.

It’s going to be an action/RPG set in world devised by the famous author. Details are scarce, but we’re confident FromSoftware’s zen-balanced fighting mechanics will be in full effect.

According to legendary studio president, Hidetaka Miyazaki, Elden Ring will be “the most ambitious game they have ever produced”.

Doom Eternal

Hold on to your stomachs, as id Software’s unmistakable Doom series returns with guts and gore than an abattoir.

It’s a relentless first person shooter where enemies attack in waves. New for this time out are environmental context kills, which means triggering traps that help to kill the evil you face.

Doom Eternal will never win awards for its plot, but in terms of breathless shooting, you won’t find much better.

FIFA 20

EA Sports has taken a different approach to unveiling its next FIFA title. The focus this time is around the type of close quarters skills you find in street football.

Of course, EA Sports once had a popular, yet short-lived, FIFA Street game that did the same thing. However, FIFA 20 looks to incorporate this into the big, grass pitch side of footie.

The new mode allows you to design a player, pick their gear and then choose signature skills to best embarrass the opposition. Looks good.

Project Scarlett

We’re taking a quick break from game trailers now. Microsoft has revealed that they are indeed working on a new console – Project Scarlett.

This next-gen machine will have 4K visuals as standard (capable of 8K) and be four times faster than Xbox One.

With Sony’s new machine in the works, too, the new console arms race has finally begun.

Microsoft Flight Simulator

The flight-sim series has been around for decades now, but it has never looked this good. It put you in control of a number of aircraft that you can fly, real time, across the planet.

What’s impressive about this is that the globe has been digitally recreated to a tee. You’ll see the Grand Canyon, Taj Mahal or even The Palm, Jumeirah faithfully laid out.

In a time when games don’t really want you to relax, this is the perfect tonic that we can’t wait to get behind the controls with.

Gylt

Google Stadia’s first big budget exclusive. This haunting game looks to play out like a Pixar film set inside the creepy world of Silent Hill. There’s even a hint of Stranger Things style┬ámonsters in there.

Gylt certainly looks appealing. As the trailer shows, it’s like a deadly game of hide and seek, where the cost of being caught is life over, not just game over.

It might not be a system seller, but Gylt still looks fun.

Maneater

This could be the weirdest game on the list, but bear with us. So you play as a shark, right? It’s an open-world (open-waters?) title where you gobble up everything.

Alligators, swordfish, people – it doesn’t matter, you’ve got to chew them all up. It’s unclear if there will be any sort of story line present to hook us in, mind.

Still, if this early look is anything to go by, Maneater will be fun. Living out your fantasy of being Jaws is finally about to become true.

Cyberpunk 2077

Is… is that Keanu Reeves? Why, yes it is. The Hollywood heavyweight of John Wick and The Matrix fame has loaned his face and voice to this futuristic RPG.

Set in 2077, you play as a fully customisable character that must navigate a world overrun with criminality.

You can learn hacking, machinery and combat skills along the way in the huge world. It has Game of the Year written all over it – with or without Keanu.
