The 2015 E3 conference will run June 16-18. Most of the big announcements will occur on Monday, June 15, but Bethesda will hold an individual press conference one day earlier on June 14. Here are the five games we are most excited to see.
Eternal Darkness remake for the Wii U
The Eternal Darkness remake is a hugely anticipated release for the Wii U. The original game, Eternal Darkness: Sanity’s Requiem, was first released on the Game Cube. Since then Nintendo has held the rights, which reminds players that the game could be re-released.
Rumors about the release of Eternal Darkness date back to last year’s E3, when an unknown person predicted the release of Devil’s Third and that Amiibo characters would be compatible with Super Smash Brothers, also leaking that Nintendo would be working on a long-anticipated remake.
Gears of War 4
Black Tusk, creators of the Gears of War series, has renamed themselves The Coalition. Rod Fergusson, former head of Black Tusk Studios, says, “Beginning today, the Vancouver-based Xbox team working on the Gears of War franchise will be known as The Coalition.”
Gears of War 4 will be released for the Xbox, and many hope the release date will be announced at E3. According to Fergusson, “We’re getting closer to E3, where we will share more on what’s next for Gears of Wars.”
Dark Souls III
The YouTube channel “The Know” has leaked details about Dark Souls III, which will be released for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and possibly the PC. Dark Souls III is said to have 10 playable classes, 45 new enemies with 15 new bosses, 100 new weapons, 45 new armor sets, 60 minutes worth of cut scenes and 12 new areas. At least 18 different screen shots are available for viewing. We expect to hear more about the title at E3.
Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End
Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End will be a PlayStation 4-only release. Excitement rages for Uncharted 4 after the Naughty Dog release of the Last of Us. One developer from Naughty Dog says, “It’ll be great to see what Naughty Dog can offer on next-gen hardware after the phenomenal Last of Us.”
Mass Effect 4
Mass Effect 4 will not feature Commander Shepard, and it may possibly show similarities to Dragon Age: Inquisition. One developer says that “calling the next installment in the series simply Mass Effect 4 is doing the game a disservice.”
