It’s been a long few days of late nights, early mornings, and exciting announcements, but finally, the conferences of E3 2017 are all over with.
There have been a lot of games shown off – some brand new, and some that we’ve already known about. Some trailers have disappointed us a little bit, while others have made us incredibly excited. It’s been hard to pick just ten to highlight – but what would a Tuesday be without a Top 10? Without further ado, here are the 10 games from E3 2017 that we’re most excited for.
10. Crackdown 3
I have two words about Crackdown 3: Terry Crews.
Seriously, I didn’t need to know anything about the game. As soon as that trailer started up and Mr. Crews’ face appeared, I was sold. That guy can win me over to anything.
As for the game itself, Crackdown 3 has been a long time coming, so it’s great we finally have a release date to log in our diaries – November 7th. Terry Crews plays Commander Jaxon in a comic book-styled fever dream of explosions, guns and neon lights. It looks like completely over-the-top action-packed gloriousness, and we can’t wait to get our hands on it.
9. Skull & Bones
Ever since we played Assassin’s Creed Black Flag back in 2013, we’ve longed for a spin-off that focuses on pirates, plundering and naval combat. We’ve suspected something might have been in the works for a while after a few choice surveys sent out from Ubisoft asking leading questions about pirates, and finally the result has been announced: Skull & Bones.
While it’s not quite an Assassin’s Creed spin-off, it looks to nail the thrill of ship-to-ship combat perfectly and will let us live out our pirate-based fantasies, albeit in a more multiplayer-based setting. It looks to have an RPG upgrade system, letting you start out as a lowly captain and climb the ranks until you own the seven seas and all the treasure that lies within. Similar to the system that Ubisoft employed in For Honor, the world will be constantly evolving as you play, with seasons in place to keep gameplay feeling fresh.
Skull & Bones is set to release in the later part of 2018, so it’s a fair way off yet, but we’re excited to find out more.
