Replenishment of the E3 - These are the game highlights for the fall
The big big surprises are not to be seen at the games fair E3, but there are many good and above all fresh ideas: teenage world pain and science fiction, bloodthirsty orcs and racing spaceships - and in the middle Mario in a very unfamiliar role.
, , and many other titles: 2017 is already a great year for game fans. And the thick end is yet to come.
At the E3 Los Angeles Game Show, big and small developers have revealed numerous new blockbusters for the fall and Christmas deal in late August.
This includes, of course, the well-known uniform pudity of football, car racing and Geballer: " Fifa 18 " Electronic Arts comes on September 29 and continues the successful story mode of its predecessor. " Call of Duty: WWII " (Activision, November 3) is set in World War II, returning to the roots of the series after years in the future. And " Forza Motorsport 7 " (Microsoft, October 3) offers the usual frenzy with luxury cars and race cars - on Microsoft's new Xbox One X for the first time in Ultra HD.
Beyond the standard diet is also unusual, the sequel to " Middle Earth: Mordors shadow " about. This was a surprise success in 2015, but less on the at most ordinary sword fighting action, but rather on the innovative nemesis system. From nameless orcs became real characters that the player could either fight or pull to his side.
A great idea with a lot of potential - no wonder that this system is in the center of attention in the successor " Shadow of War " (Warner Bros.). Here the player can now set up entire armies of orcs and thus wage war against the evil Sauron and his servants. It starts on October 10th.
The Life Is Strange Prehistory
Another surprise hit that is now making its well-deserved sequel is Square Enix's interactive teenage drama " Life is Strange ". The trilogy " Before the Storm ", the first episode of which is released on August 31st, does not just continue the story but tells the story.
With Teenage World Pain in 2013, "Gone Home" became a fan favorite and critics' favorite. After that, there was a long silence about the developers of Fullbright. On August 2nd " Tacoma " finally releases her next game.
Once again, the player has to reveal the secrets of a deserted place from the first person perspective, but the similarities also stop again. Because "Tacoma" is not a family drama, but real science fiction - and his venue is not a family home, but a space station.
Super Mario is represented twice
One of the regulars at E3 is Ubisoft's history series "Assassin's Creed". In 2016, however, the series took a creative break, mixed with the reactions to the recent episodes "Unity" and "Syndicate". However, on October 27, the series returns with " Assassin's Creed Origins " all the more peppy - with more role-playing elements including equipment for collecting, a huge game world and ancient Egypt as a new scenario.
Nintendo shows at the E3 especially " Super Mario Odyssey ", the new big adventure of his mascot. However, this is not the only game with the plumber that can be seen in Los Angeles: Ubisoft shows " Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle " here on the 29th of X. 7 © dpa, toh sirE3 2017 - these are the game hits of the year August appears exclusively for Nintendo Switch. Perhaps the biggest blockbusters at E3, however, are two sci-fi online shooters: "
Destiny 2" (Activision, September 6) has the hard task of making the mistakes of the successful, but not the same undoubted predecessor forget to make. And "
Star Wars Battlefront 2" (Electronic Arts, 17 November) wants to offer more compared to the first part above all: more "Star Wars" heroes, more worlds and backgrounds for his mass battles, more spectacle and more Variety. Sony has only a few titles left in 2017, most notably "Uncharted - The Lost Legacy". Once planned as a download extension for the 2016 release of "Uncharted 4", it now appears as a standalone game, featuring two previous supporting actresses in the series starring a whole new storyline around an action-packed treasure hunt in India.
These games will not be around until 2018Many developers are also showing games that will be released next year at E3. Anyone waiting for the new "
God of War " from Sony, which blithely blends the Greek myths of its predecessors with Nordic gods and legends, must be patient until 2018.Same goes for other show highlights - for example for "
Anthem", a new and very large online adventure by Electronic Arts, for the new adventures of "
Spider-Man" (Sony), for the online Pirate battles of "
Sea of Thieves " (Microsoft) or " Far Cry 5" of Ubisoft.
‘Banjo-Kazooie’ Coming to ‘Super Smash Bros. Ultimate’.
The characters from Rare’s classic platforming series “Banjo-Kazooie” are coming to “Super Smash Bros. Ultimate” later this year, Nintendo announced during its E3 2019 Direct on Tuesday. For the uninitiated, Banjo is a bear and Kazooie is a big red bird. While Banjo first appeared in “Diddy Kong Racing” on the Nintendo 64 in 1997, he got his first solo title — and his feathery sidekick — a year later on the same platform. The first “Banjo-Kazooie” was a critical and commercial success, and it spawned a number of sequels up until 2008.
