Mixture 2.1 (#152) about E3

Salat Abdulbekovich slowly, with a sprawling gait, left the house. At the entrance stood, shining in the sun, Infinity FX35. Opening the door, Salad glanced at the studded tires. It would be necessary to change, mid-June after all. Although why? The winter is coming. Salat Abdulbekovich enjoyed life. The sun was shining, music was playing in the cabin, the “date” was confidently galloping in the stream, clattering its spikes along Leningradka. Lettuce drove fast, drove boldly, drove high, easy!

Perhaps he even thought who needs these computer racing, like the announced Forza Horizon 4. Some losers play it, in the driver's seat and the graphics, and the feeling is better. Smartphone snapped. One problem - there is no pause button. Well, okay, nothing will happen on the road there, you can look at the phone. Oh, the boys are calling to rest, - Salat Abdulbekovich was delighted. Having shifted his gaze to the road, Salad did not have time to think about anything, his foot instinctively pressed the brake all the way, but it was too late ...

Seeing in the rearview mirror how, screeching with brakes and sliding studded tires on the asphalt, a black Infiniti is rapidly approaching, I managed to think only one word of 5 letters, but I can’t write it here. When I came to my senses after the blow, my vocabulary expanded, but I can’t voice these words here either. Well, after the price tag set by the car service, I slandered a small brochure, which, unfortunately, cannot be published either.

But I can tell you about E3 and the new Forza Horizon 4, recognized as the best auto racing as part of the gaming exhibition.

Pro E3

But let's go in order. E3, or Electronic Entertainment Expo - in fact, that's why the event is abbreviated as E3, one of the largest and definitely the most important exhibition of the gaming industry. In the first days of June, journalists from all over the world flock to Los Angeles, where they watch exclusive announcements, feel new gadgets, look at promotional girls wetly, drink and eat plenty, and then give links to demo trailers of games from YouTube. You can probably guess from this description that I was not invited. And although we are not a gaming resource, I propose to see what manufacturers of gamers were pleased with in 2018. Maybe we'll find something for ourselves.

Cyberpunk 2077

There was such a game "The Witcher 3". You may have heard of her. The same guys from CD Projekt at E3 presented, as it were, The Witcher, but with different graphics, plot, other details and under the name Cyberpunk 2077. And it's very cool. Judging by the reviews, the game is a mix of RPG, first-person shooter and GTA-style open world. All this in the entourage of the world of the future, which most of all reminded me of the series "Altered Carbon".

You have to play as a petty crook. It is curious that the creators of the game allow you to customize the appearance as meticulously as possible, as well as come up with a brief background of the hero yourself. You can identify some events, for example, in childhood, that influenced the character. They promise that this will affect the further plot.

For the most part, the game will feel like a first-person shooter. As usual, there are options for passing - to fight ahead or sneak on the sly. Journalists were very impressed with the detailing of the world of the future. The city looks alive: the inhabitants naturally move, quarrel among themselves. It was said that each NPC has a certain range of activities that changes depending on the time of day.

No release date has been set. The game will be available for all gaming platforms - Sony PS 4. Perhaps they will do it for PC and Xbox.

Bethesda

The Elder Scrolls VI

Bethesda has announced a new Elder Scrolls series. At the presentation, the audience groaned, grunted and hooted from an overabundance of feelings. However, there is nothing to rejoice about yet. The presented trailer does not contain any information, the release date is not named, and all the news can be described more as a statement of intent.

Starfield

The main focus of Bethesda's presentation was on other games, one of them is Starfield. For the company, this will be the first new original franchise in 25 years. The main news here is that the game is already being developed for the next generation of consoles.

Fallout 76

Mix 2.1 (#152) Pro E3 Mix 2.1 (#152) pro E3 Mix 2.1 ( #152) about E3 Mixture 2.1 (#152) Pro E3

Bottom line: This is the studio's first open-world online survival game. And here is the release date - November 14th.

So, Fallout 76 is Fallout that you can play with your friends online. However, one should not think that the main feature of the game is brawls with other players. As game director Todd Howard explained, Fallout 76 is an opportunity to try to survive after a nuclear explosion. The world is empty, and players are given an attempt to build it up again. Of course, you can drop everything and wander back and forth, finding part-time jobs.

In general, the idea is good, but the creators of the game have not announced what mechanics will operate in the game in order to prevent total shooting, violence and lawlessness. After all, everyone knows that destroying is much more fun than building.

The magnificent studio "Naughty Dog" has announced the continuation of its sensational hit "The Last of Us". It turns out that 5 years have already passed since the release of the first part, but only 4 years have passed according to the plot of the game. The story will focus on Ellie (the girl on the cover of the first game). In the trailer, we are shown a very angry 19-year-old girl who also managed to hide somewhere with tattoos and learned to play the guitar.In a word, I spent these 4 years with benefit. The reasons for the bad mood are not explained, but simply put before the fact. Probably, Ellie herself did not explain to the creators what went wrong with her. The creators added that they made the game very cruel and gloomy to make it uncomfortable to play. This is exactly what the authors intended the atmosphere to be like. Without really telling anything, Naughty Dog still managed to hook. To a greater extent, of course, the plot is interesting, and not the game.

Battlefield 5

Mix 2.1 (#152) Pro E3 Mix 2.1 (#152) pro E3 Mix 2.1 ( #152) about E3

The audience for the Electronic Arts presentation consisted primarily of white, body-positive, bearded men. It was to them that the head of design at the EA game studio said: “You don’t like that there are a lot of women in Battlefield 5? Well, don't buy the game!"

I said it rather thoughtlessly. After all, if not them, then who else will buy the game? Is it really counting on a female audience?

And it all started so well. Everyone sat and happily watched the trailer, which suddenly turned out to be a lot of women. This made the body-positive men very angry. They even launched a hashtag on Twitter (what else should they do?) #it's not mybattle.

Otherwise everything is as usual. First-person shooter, tanks destroying houses, planes falling from the sky, women hitting enemies with machine guns, a lot of maps from the Second World War, you can try to play from October 18.

Assassin's Creed Odyssey

Mix 2.1 (#152) Pro E3 Mix 2.1 (#152) pro E3 Mix 2.1 ( #152) about E3

To be honest, I'm already a little tired of the Assassin's Creed series. Whatever it was… For example, there was Ancient Egypt. Now here comes Ancient Greece. I included the game in the selection only because both the trailer and the gameplay turned out to be very colorful. And the company did a good homework. Costumes, armor, weapons, architecture are recreated authentically. If you don’t play, then you definitely want to wander.

Death Stranding

Mix 2.1 (#152) Pro E3 Mix 2.1 (#152) pro E3

The name of the game, I believe, can be translated as "death strand". The plot, unfortunately, is still unclear. In the trailer, for 8 minutes, we are shown how the hero wanders through forests and fields, then some invisible entity attacks. All this happens to intense music.

The game should be expected for 3 reasons. First, it is made by Hideo Kojima. This is a cool Japanese game designer, best known for the Metal Gear series. Secondly, Norman Reedus from The Walking Dead series, Mads Mikkelsen, who played Hannibal, and Leah Seda, who she played, I don’t know, are filmed in the game, but outwardly the girl is very nice. And, thirdly, the plot promises to be exciting. Judging by the interview of the same Mikkelsen, an unbanal story awaits us, where there are no positive or negative characters. Surprisingly, game makers now manage to intrigue worse than filmmakers.

Anthem

Mix 2.1 (#152) Pro E3 Mix 2.1 (#152) pro E3 Mix 2.1 ( #152) about E3

A new post-apocalyptic fantasy from BioWare with a multiplayer mode. Let me quote a story taken from Wikipedia: “In a world abandoned at the time of creation, humanity is fighting for survival in the wild, fraught with many dangers. The Freelancers, a faction of pilots of the incredible Javelin exosuits, seek to tip the scales in favor of the humans.

In the beginning, the gods harnessed the Anthem, the source of pure creation. But before their work was completed, the gods were gone, leaving behind an unfinished world and their tools of creation.

The Anthem's power was unchecked, and world-changing cataclysms were unleashed, transforming and corrupting those who attempted to harness the power. Trying to survive, our ancestors created exosuits, man-made armor that gives people superpowers. The world is plunged into an eternal struggle between the power of the Anthem and the tools of the gods who created it. Now the fate of humanity lies in the hands of a small group of pilots known as the Freelancers.

After such a description, there is little hope that the storyline will be interesting, but basically I suggest looking at the game as a multiplayer shooter where you can put on an exoskeleton and shoot other players from the heart in a broken world atmosphere.

Gears Tactics

Mix 2.1 (#152) Pro E3 Mix 2.1 (#152) pro E3 Mix 2.1 ( #152) about E3

This is the best turn-based strategy game in the show, according to IGN. In the management of the squad to perform various missions. We were promised dramatic plot twists, brutal fighting, as well as evil bosses. And most importantly, it will be a gaming exclusive for PC. The release date and other plot details were traditionally not indicated.

Jedi Fallen Order

Mix 2.1 (#152) Pro E3

A short line about a new game in the Star Wars universe, because a long one here, with all the desire, will not work. The action will take place between the third and fourth episodes. The presentation did not show trailers, but promised an open world, lightsabers and an interesting single-player campaign. The release is expected sometime in 2019. Stunned, what announcements are made, right?

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice

Mix 2.1 (#152) Pro E3 Mix 2.1 (#152) pro E3 Mix 2.1 ( #152) about E3

From the creators of DarkSouls, a brand new samurai game. Software is known for making games that are very difficult to complete and fundamentally remove the difficulty slider, preventing the player from making their life easier. In an interview, this was explained by the fact that they want everyone to have the same gaming experience. And the passage of the game should bring a sense of satisfaction, which is not when there are no difficulties.

Sekiro will be a single player game with no hints of multiplayer. There are common truths about the plot. If a samurai, then it takes place in feudal Japan. Just like that, a samurai will not swing his sword left and right. It is logical that he is taking revenge on someone and for something. The gameplay is quite simple: swing your sword with all your might. We rejoice in the blood and the grotesque gloomy picture in the trailer.

Shadow of the Tomb Raider

Mix 2.1 (#152) Pro E3 Mix 2.1 (#152) pro E3

As you know, the recently released film about Lara Croft failed at the box office. In addition to the paucity of the plot, there is probably another reason. This poster helps shed light on it:

Mix 2.1 (#152) Pro E3

The new game is the final part of the trilogy about the formation of Lara Croft. The game will take place in South America. And then everything is according to the classics: the jungle, the bow (they won’t give pistols), enemy mercenaries, various lost antiquities. According to the promises of the authors, the story campaign will take 15 hours of playing time. The game's lead character, Camille Ludington, said that it will be the darkest game in the series, as the heroine is solely focused on avenging her father's death and oblivious to the consequences of her actions. The game is marked 18+, and the release is scheduled for September 18.

About Dell

Dell jumped in and introduced a new gaming mouse and headset for E3. They promise that the headset will be weightless, with an excellent microphone and a headband, from which you will not get tired even after a few hours.

Mix 2.1 (#152) Pro E3

I was more attracted by the announcement that Dell is opening a game academy. Let me quote from the press release: “The platform will provide beginner players with tips and tricks, lessons and multiple feedback to help them develop skills and strategic thinking and learn how to play like a pro. Alienware Academy will launch in closed beta in June 2018 with over 10 CS:GO video tutorials."

I immediately imagined heavily sighing schoolchildren and students who, after classes and classes, rush home and learn to play at the academy of games: “Mom, get out of the room! I do my homework. To date, 10 headshots have been asked!”

On the other hand, playing computer games professionally is a real job today, which still pays well.

Conclusion

Mostly told about those games that hooked me. They are all united by the fact that they have a fairly strong emphasis on the story campaign, which potentially should be very interesting. When asked about the details of the plot, all the developers preferred to kick back with general phrases and meaningfully remain silent.

Tell us what you play yourself, what releases you are looking forward to, which E3 announcements you found the most interesting and why.

It was said that each NPC has a certain range of activities that changes depending on the time of day.

No release date has been set. The game will be available for all gaming platforms - Sony PS 4. Perhaps they will do it for PC and Xbox.

Bethesda

The Elder Scrolls VI

Bethesda has announced a new Elder Scrolls series. At the presentation, the audience groaned, grunted and hooted from an overabundance of feelings. However, there is nothing to rejoice about yet. The presented trailer does not contain any information, the release date is not named, and all the news can be described more as a statement of intent.

Starfield

The main focus of Bethesda's presentation was on other games, one of them is Starfield. For the company, this will be the first new original franchise in 25 years. The main news here is that the game is already being developed for the next generation of consoles.

Fallout 76

Mix 2.1 (#152) Pro E3 Mix 2.1 (#152) pro E3 Mix 2.1 ( #152) about E3 Mixture 2.1 (#152) Pro E3

Bottom line: This is the studio's first open-world online survival game. And here is the release date - November 14th.

So, Fallout 76 is Fallout that you can play with your friends online. However, one should not think that the main feature of the game is brawls with other players. As game director Todd Howard explained, Fallout 76 is an opportunity to try to survive after a nuclear explosion. The world is empty, and the players are given an attempt to build it up again. Of course, you can drop everything and wander back and forth, finding part-time jobs.

In general, the idea is good, but the creators of the game have not announced what mechanics will operate in the game in order to prevent total shooting, violence and lawlessness. After all, everyone knows that destroying is much more fun than building.

Last of us 2

Mix 2.1 (#152) Pro E3 Mix 2.1 (#152) pro E3 Mix 2.1 ( #152) about E3

The magnificent studio "Naughty Dog" has announced the continuation of its sensational hit "The Last of Us". It turns out that 5 years have already passed since the release of the first part, but only 4 years have passed according to the plot of the game. The story will focus on Ellie (the girl on the cover of the first game). In the trailer, we are shown a very angry 19-year-old girl who also managed to hide somewhere with tattoos and learned to play the guitar.In a word, I spent these 4 years with benefit. The reasons for the bad mood are not explained, but simply put before the fact. Probably, Ellie herself did not explain to the creators what went wrong with her. The creators added that they made the game very cruel and gloomy to make it uncomfortable to play. This is exactly what the authors intended the atmosphere to be like. Without really telling anything, Naughty Dog still managed to hook. To a greater extent, of course, the plot is interesting, and not the game.

Battlefield 5

Mix 2.1 (#152) Pro E3 Mix 2.1 (#152) pro E3 Mix 2.1 ( #152) about E3

The audience for the Electronic Arts presentation consisted primarily of white, body-positive, bearded men. It was to them that the head of design at the EA game studio said: “You don’t like that there are a lot of women in Battlefield 5? Well, don't buy the game!"

I think I said it rather thoughtlessly. After all, if not them, then who else will buy the game? Is it really counting on a female audience?

And it all started so well. Everyone sat and happily watched the trailer, which suddenly turned out to be a lot of women. This made the body-positive men very angry. They even launched a hashtag on Twitter (what else should they do?) #it's not mybattle.

Otherwise everything is as usual. First-person shooter, tanks destroying houses, planes falling from the sky, women hitting enemies with machine guns, a lot of maps from the Second World War, you can try to play from October 18.

Assassin's Creed Odyssey

Mix 2.1 (#152) Pro E3 Mix 2.1 (#152) pro E3 Mix 2.1 ( #152) about E3

To be honest, I'm already a little tired of the Assassin's Creed series. Whatever it was… For example, there was Ancient Egypt. Now here comes Ancient Greece. I included the game in the selection only because both the trailer and the gameplay turned out to be very colorful. And the company did a good homework. Costumes, armor, weapons, architecture are recreated authentically. If you don’t play, then you definitely want to wander.

Death Stranding

Mix 2.1 (#152) Pro E3 Mix 2.1 (#152) pro E3

The name of the game, I believe, can be translated as "death strand". The plot, unfortunately, is still unclear. In the trailer, for 8 minutes, we are shown how the hero wanders through forests and fields, then some invisible entity attacks. All this happens to intense music.

The game should be expected for 3 reasons. First, it is made by Hideo Kojima. This is a cool Japanese game designer, best known for the Metal Gear series. Secondly, Norman Reedus from The Walking Dead series, Mads Mikkelsen, who played Hannibal, and Leah Seda, who she played, I don’t know, are filmed in the game, but outwardly the girl is very nice. And, thirdly, the plot promises to be exciting. Judging by the interview of the same Mikkelsen, an unbanal story awaits us, where there are no positive or negative characters. Surprisingly, game makers now manage to intrigue worse than filmmakers.

Anthem

Mix 2.1 (#152) Pro E3 Mix 2.1 (#152) pro E3 Mix 2.1 ( #152) about E3

A new post-apocalyptic fantasy from BioWare with a multiplayer mode. Let me quote a story taken from Wikipedia: “In a world abandoned at the time of creation, humanity is fighting for survival in the wild, fraught with many dangers. The Freelancers, a faction of pilots of the incredible Javelin exosuits, seek to tip the scales in favor of the humans.

In the beginning, the gods harnessed the Anthem, the source of pure creation. But before their work was completed, the gods were gone, leaving behind an unfinished world and their tools of creation.

The Anthem's power was unchecked, and world-changing cataclysms were unleashed, transforming and corrupting those who attempted to harness the power. Trying to survive, our ancestors created exosuits, man-made armor that gives people superpowers. The world is plunged into an eternal struggle between the power of the Anthem and the tools of the gods who created it. Now the fate of humanity lies in the hands of a small group of pilots known as the Freelancers.

After such a description, there is little hope that the storyline will be interesting, but basically I suggest looking at the game as a multiplayer shooter where you can put on an exoskeleton and shoot other players from the heart in a broken world atmosphere.

Gears Tactics

Mix 2.1 (#152) Pro E3 Mix 2.1 (#152) pro E3 Mix 2.1 ( #152) about E3

This is the best turn-based strategy game in the show, according to IGN. In the management of the squad to perform various missions. We were promised dramatic plot twists, brutal fighting, as well as evil bosses. And most importantly, it will be a gaming exclusive for PC. The release date and other plot details were traditionally not indicated.

Jedi Fallen Order

Mix 2.1 (#152) Pro E3

A short line about a new game in the Star Wars universe, because a long one here, with all the desire, will not work. The action will take place between the third and fourth episodes. The presentation did not show trailers, but promised an open world, lightsabers and an interesting single-player campaign. The release is expected sometime in 2019. Stunned, what announcements are made, right?

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice

Mix 2.1 (#152) Pro E3 Mix 2.1 (#152) pro E3 Mix 2.1 ( #152) about E3

From the creators of DarkSouls, a brand new samurai game. Software is known for making games that are very difficult to complete and fundamentally remove the difficulty slider, preventing the player from making their life easier. In an interview, this was explained by the fact that they want everyone to have the same gaming experience. And the passage of the game should bring a sense of satisfaction, which is not when there are no difficulties.

Sekiro will be a single player game with no hints of multiplayer. There are common truths about the plot. If a samurai, then it takes place in feudal Japan. Just like that, a samurai will not swing his sword left and right. It is logical that he is taking revenge on someone and for something. The gameplay is quite simple: swing your sword with all your might. We rejoice in the blood and the grotesque gloomy picture in the trailer.

Shadow of the Tomb Raider

Mix 2.1 (#152) Pro E3 Mix 2.1 (#152) pro E3

As you know, the recently released film about Lara Croft failed at the box office. In addition to the paucity of the plot, there is probably another reason. This poster helps shed light on it:

Mix 2.1 (#152) Pro E3

The new game is the final part of the trilogy about the formation of Lara Croft. The game will take place in South America. And then everything is according to the classics: the jungle, the bow (they won’t give pistols), enemy mercenaries, various lost antiquities. According to the promises of the authors, the story campaign will take 15 hours of playing time. The game's lead character, Camille Ludington, said that it will be the darkest game in the series, as the heroine is solely focused on avenging her father's death and oblivious to the consequences of her actions. The game is marked 18+, and the release is scheduled for September 18.

About Dell

Dell jumped in and introduced a new gaming mouse and headset for E3. They promise that the headset will be weightless, with an excellent microphone and a headband, from which you will not get tired even after a few hours.

Mix 2.1 (#152) Pro E3

I was more attracted by the announcement that Dell is opening a game academy. Let me quote from the press release: “The platform will provide beginner players with tips and tricks, lessons and multiple feedback to help them develop skills and strategic thinking and learn how to play like a pro. Alienware Academy will launch in closed beta in June 2018 with over 10 CS:GO video tutorials."

I immediately imagined heavily sighing schoolchildren and students who, after classes and classes, rush home and learn to play at the academy of games: “Mom, get out of the room! I do my homework. To date, 10 headshots have been asked!”

On the other hand, playing computer games professionally is a real job today, which still pays well.

Conclusion

Mostly told about those games that hooked me. They are all united by the fact that they have a fairly strong emphasis on the story campaign, which potentially should be very interesting. When asked about the details of the plot, all the developers preferred to kick back with general phrases and meaningfully remain silent.

Tell us what you play yourself, what releases you are looking forward to, which E3 announcements you found the most interesting and why.

Mixture 2.1 (#152) about E3

Salat Abdulbekovich slowly, with a sprawling gait, left the house. At the entrance stood, shining in the sun, Infinity FX35. Opening the door, Salad glanced at the studded tires. It would be necessary to change, mid-June after all. Although why? The winter is coming. Salat Abdulbekovich enjoyed life. The sun was shining, music was playing in the cabin, the “date” was confidently galloping in the stream, clattering its spikes along Leningradka. Lettuce drove fast, drove boldly, drove high, easy!

Perhaps he even thought who needs these computer racing, like the announced Forza Horizon 4. Some losers play it, in the driver's seat and the graphics, and the feeling is better. Smartphone snapped. One problem - there is no pause button. Well, okay, nothing will happen on the road there, you can look at the phone. Oh, the boys are calling to rest, - Salat Abdulbekovich was delighted. Having shifted his gaze to the road, Salad did not have time to think about anything, his leg instinctively pressed the brake all the way, but it was too late ...

Seeing in the rearview mirror how, screeching with brakes and sliding studded tires on the asphalt, a black Infiniti is rapidly approaching, I managed to think only one word of 5 letters, but I can’t write it here. When I came to my senses after the blow, my vocabulary expanded, but I can’t voice these words here either. Well, after the price tag set by the car service, I slandered a small brochure, which, unfortunately, cannot be published either.

But I can tell you about E3 and the new Forza Horizon 4, recognized as the best auto racing in the gaming exhibition.

But I can tell you about E3 and the new Forza Horizon 4, recognized as the best auto racing in the gaming exhibition.

Pro E3

But let's go in order. E3, or Electronic Entertainment Expo - in fact, that's why the event is abbreviated as E3, one of the largest and definitely the most important exhibition of the gaming industry. In the first days of June, journalists from all over the world flock to Los Angeles, where they watch exclusive announcements, feel new gadgets, look at promotional girls wetly, drink and eat plenty, and then give links to demo trailers of games from YouTube. You can probably guess from this description that I was not invited. And although we are not a gaming resource, I propose to see what manufacturers of gamers were pleased with in 2018. Maybe we'll find something for ourselves.

Cyberpunk 2077

There was such a game "The Witcher 3". You may have heard of her. The same guys from CD Projekt at E3 presented, as it were, The Witcher, but with different graphics, plot, other details and under the name Cyberpunk 2077. And it's very cool. Judging by the reviews, the game is a mix of RPG, first-person shooter and GTA-style open world. All this in the entourage of the world of the future, which most of all reminded me of the series "Altered Carbon".

You have to play as a petty crook. It is curious that the creators of the game allow you to customize the appearance as meticulously as possible, as well as come up with a brief background of the hero yourself. You can identify some events, for example, in childhood, that influenced the character. They promise that this will affect the further plot.

For the most part, the game will feel like a first-person shooter. As usual, there are options for passing - to fight ahead or sneak on the sly. Journalists were very impressed with the detailing of the world of the future. The city looks alive: the inhabitants naturally move, quarrel among themselves. It was said that each NPC has a certain range of activities that changes depending on the time of day.
