The Biggest Titles from this Year’s E3

The week of new gaming news is slowly starting to come to an end as E3 is rounding out this year’s presentation lists – from brand new titles to renewed hope for games announced some time ago now, there has plenty to get excited for. It has been a year of gaming for a newer audience too as turning to exciting online services here at for example has been a common change, but what have been some of the biggest announcements to get players excited for the next generation of gaming?

Elden Ring is close – The hype for the Bandai Namco game has been high ever since it was teased, with creative talents like Hidetaka Miyazaki, one of the talents behind the Dark Souls and Bloodborne games that have become huge names in their own right, and George R.R. Martin, the author behind Game of Thrones – this Dark Souls styled game will be at the top of the list for many players when it releases early in 2022. The two previous names mentioned gained a lot of popularity for their challenging gameplay, so it’s widely expected Elden Ring will deliver in the same way, and with a lot more world building than both previous games too largely in part to the writing behind it, there will be plenty for the story lovers out there too – many expect this to be one of the best-selling titles of next year.

Starfield marks Bethesda’s next big release – Many fans were hoping to see an update for the next Elder Scrolls game from Bethesda this year, however unlikely that may have been, but we did instead receive news on the first new video game universe from the studio in 25 years. Known for their big open world sandbox styled games, Starfield will be a similar title in the setting of space that lets players get out and explore with all of the freedom that players have grown used to – also known to be a company that allows for huge modding support, expect this to be a universe that exists for a huge period of time moving forward once the creative hands touch it – touted for release in 2022, it’s not too far away.

Avatar, Frontiers of Pandora – Another slated for 2022, and a bit of a strange one too – from the team who worked on Tom Clancy’s The Division 2, this game set in the Avatar universe of Pandora will allow players to experience life as one of the Na’vi, all of the wonderful creatures seen in the movie, and more as an action-adventure title. Whilst the release trailer didn’t show much gameplay, it did show enough of the world to get players attention, and could certainly be an interesting title for some to experience.
