Session

Session

Originally announced as a PC exclusive Kickstarter title, Microsoft was bringing indie Skate successor Session to the Xbox platform in E3 2018, but the game has seen some delays as a result of that expanded scope. It’s expected to hit Early Access sometime in the Summer, so you can expect to see it show up at the Xbox E3 2019 Press Briefing with a more definitive launch window at the least.


Animal Crossing (2019)

Animal Crossing (2019)

Animal Crossing fans have been waiting for a new mainline entry into the series since New Leaf, and back in September, they finally got a glimmer of hope they'd receive one in 2019. Animal Crossing is coming to the Switch sometime this year, but since Nintendo hasn't narrowed down that release date at all, we're expecting it'll be one of the Switch games the company shows off at E3. All we've seen so far is an extremely brief teaser trailer featuring Tom Nook talking about making sure everyone has a "nice, new place to come home to."


Bayonetta 3

Bayonetta 3

Platinum Games has more Bayonetta on the way, and it's coming exclusively to the Nintendo Switch. It's also another Platinum Games title we know very little about. A teaser trailer first popped for Bayonetta 3 at the 2017 Game Awards, but there's been radio silence ever since. It was originally slated for a 2019 release, but Nintendo has since shifted Bayonetta 3's release date to "TBA." Regardless, with Nintendo's big focus on the Switch at E3 this year, it seems very likely we'll get another big look at Bayonetta in the days to come.


Beyond Good And Evil 2

Beyond Good And Evil 2

We still haven't gotten our hands on Beyond Good and Evil 2, but given how much we saw at E3 2018, it seems likely it'll finally be in a playable state this year. In general, though, Beyond Good and Evil 2 looks to be in pretty good shape, and to be enormous, giving players plenty of opportunities to fight baddies, travel the galaxy, interact with its various people, and get in plenty of space piracy.


Borderlands 3

Borderlands 3

Revealed at PAX East 2019, Borderlands 3 is the long-awaited sequel that many fans of the loot-driven co-op FPS have been waiting for. Featuring a new cast of vault-hunters and apparently more loot than the previous games combined, the next game seems like it's on its way to becoming a solid follow-up to one of the more well-loved games in recent years. With the Borderlands series celebrating its tenth anniversary this year, it's apparent that the real legacy of the franchise is that it sparked the whole 'looter-shooter' craze that became popular following the original's release in 2009.


Call of Duty: Modern Warfare

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare

Activision and Infinity Ward released all kinds of information about this year's Call of Duty ahead of E3. We know it's Modern Warfare, but it's not a remake of 2007 classic- it's a reimagining of that game, geared at being more "relevant" to the current world we live in. While we haven't seen much in the way of multiplayer, we know about two big developments on that front already: First, Modern Warfare will support cross-play between Xbox One, PS4, and PC, so you can play with anyone regardless of their platform. Second, Call of Duty is doing away with the season pass format of selling post-release content, and all multiplayer maps released after the game's launch on October 25 will be free to all players.

On the campaign side, Infinity Ward has said it's looking to make a game that asks players how far they're willing to go in a modern war that doesn't have defined battlefields or easily identifiable combatants. It's looking to explore the moral gray area of conflicts, and while you'll fight alongside at least one returning character--Captain Price--you'll also join rebel fighters in a fictional Middle Eastern coverage.


Control

Control

Since the reveal last year, we've been given a chance to try Control for ourselves. The lead character, Jesse, possesses almost superhero-like powers, such as the ability to glide in mid-air and manipulate the environment with her mind. She's an unusual person in an unusual setting: a government facility that houses paranormal experiments gone awry. The building itself is said to shift and change shape, sometimes right before your eyes, with the geometric forms of the brutalist architecture bending, swaying, and twirling to reveal new hallways or even glimpses into another plane of existence. Control looks weird, dripping with odd sights and unexpected surprises, and with the release a mere few months away, it's sure to have one last pre-launch hurrah at E3 2019.


Cyberpunk 2077

Cyberpunk 2077

Before E3 2018, Cyberpunk 2077 was one of those games that were announced far too early and was seldom seen--often finding itself on most-anticipated lists several years straight. However, it seems the long wait was well worth it. So far, Cyberpunk 2077 manages to check all the boxes when it comes to presenting a compelling sci-fi experience, and with E3 2019 approaching, it's prime time to see more of the game in action. It'll be exciting to see just how expansive the side-alleys and the corporate-owned skyscrapers can get.

When compared to the developer's stellar action-RPG The Witcher 3, it's immediately apparent that Cyberpunk 2077 a different beast--trading out swords and sorcery for guns and high-tech cybernetics. The neon-lit metropolis of Night City is undoubtedly a far cry from the forests of Spitfire Bluff, which should make for an incredibly exciting space to explore.


Daemon x Machina

Daemon x Machina

Coming from developer Marvelous, the same studio behind niche action games like Senran Kagura and Fate/Extra, Daemon X Machina is a noticeable shift from their more playful titles. Announced last year for the Nintendo Switch, this mech action game possesses similarities to From Software's classic Armored Core series, featuring a deep focus on customization, along with a plethora of weapons and abilities to wipe out the opposition. We don't get that many mech-oriented action games these days, so when Daemon x Machina was revealed, it instantly turned the heads of the most die0hard fans of the niche sub-genre.


Doom Eternal

Doom Eternal

Bethesda's reboot of Doom in 2016 hit like a hammer. The speed and ferocity of combat were almost perfectly in tune with the raucous metal soundtrack, just the way Doom-heads like it. It wasn't too surprising then when Bethesda announced that a follow-up was on the way. Doom Eternal is currently in development for almost every modern platform: PS4, Xbox One, Switch, PC, and Stadia--making it one of the few games confirmed for Google's upcoming cloud-gaming service.


Dragon Ball Z RPG

Dragon Ball Z RPG

Arc System Works' success with Dragon Ball FighterZ has refreshed our taste for Akira Toriyama's classic anime universe. Though we've seen DBZ RPGs in the past, the upcoming game is the first in a long time that aims to retell the story from the anime that many fans already know and love, and in the form of what looks to be an open-world action-RPG.


Final Fantasy 7 Remake

Final Fantasy 7 Remake

Aside from Resident Evil 2, Final Fantasy 7 remake is probably the most highly anticipated remake in a long time. However, it's going to look and play a whole lot different from the 1997 original. The game will follow a more modern design, featuring a third-person camera and real-time combat. Updated character designs ride a line between realistic and stylized art. Though, the most interesting detail about the remake is that it's going to be released as multiple games.


Gears 5

Gears 5

Aside from Halo: Infinite, Gears 5 might be the biggest upcoming game Microsoft has lined up. Not much is known about it other than its premise, which picks up directly after the events of the previous game. It focuses on Gears of War 4 supporting character now turned the main protagonist, Kait Diaz, who is on a journey to uncover the origins of the Locust and her family. As a Gears game, expect tactical cover-based shooting, over-the-top set pieces, and a dash of melodrama.


Halo Infinite

Halo Infinite

Since its reveal at E3 2018, we've heard little about what we should expect. Microsoft has told fans to think of Halo Infinite as Halo 6 instead of a spin-off, and developer 343 studio boss Bonnie Ross has attributed it to something of a "spiritual reboot" to the franchise. Regardless of what Halo Infinite truly actually is, there's plenty of excitement building around the upcoming shooter.


The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening

The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening

The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening was another surprise from February’s Nintendo Direct. The game first launched back in 1993 for the original Game Boy, and now Nintendo is remaking it for Nintendo Switch.

The upcoming adventure retains the 2D, top-down view of the original, but with a tweaked art style to bring it more in line with The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds, the 3DS follow-up to A Link to the Past. It isn't the first remake the game has received since its original launch: an updated color version, dubbed Link's Awakening DX, came out in 1998.


Luigi's Mansion 3

Luigi's Mansion 3

Nintendo fans should be pleased that there's Luigi's Mansion 3 on the way. Since the 2001 release of the Gamecube original, the series has managed to garner a cult following throughout the years. The latest game once again stars the easily-frightened plumber who's on an adventure through what looks to be a haunted hotel. Nintendo hasn't discussed too much about the game, but early footage showcases elements from previous games, like ghost-sucking vacuums, spooky corridors, and plenty of wacky ghosts. Seeing as it has been a while since Luigi's Mansion 3's initial reveal, we'll likely hear more about it at during Nintendo's E3 2019 Direct presentation.


Marvel's Avengers

Marvel's Avengers

The publisher has been very tight-lipped about what to expect from the title; we're not even sure what kind of game it'll be. We do know that Tomb Raider studio Crystal Dynamics and Deus Ex: Human Revolution studio Eidos Montreal is working on it and that more information is coming at Square Enix's E3 press conference on June 10.


Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3

Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3

The Marvel Ultimate Alliance series hasn't seen a new game in about a decade, but with Avengers: Endgame still fresh in the minds of the pop culture zeitgeist, there's probably never going to be a better time to bring it back.

If you've played previous games, or anything resembling Diablo, you'll know what to expect from Ultimate Alliance 3. Each character will have up to four flashy special abilities on top of regular and ultimate attacks and will emphasize synergizing them with your teammates. You'll have a squad of four at all times (AI will substitute for real players when playing solo), and your abilities will be enhanced if all your characters are, for example, Spider-People, women of Marvel, or wise-crackers. But the real joy will be seeing just how much fan service they can stuff into this game. We'll hopefully hear more about Marvel Ultimate Alliance in Nintendo's E3 2019 Direct presentation.


Pokemon Sword and Shield

Pokemon Sword and Shield

Pokemon Sword and Shield are the latest iterations of the storied pocket monster franchise, and the first new mainline Pokemon games to arrive on Nintendo Switch. While 2018's Let's Go Pikachu and Eevee were reimaginings of the classic Pokemon Yellow, Sword and Shield will take place in an all-new UK-inspired region of the world, on top of introducing a brand new generation of Pokemon to the already staggering catalog.


Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order

Respawn Entertainment, the talented EA studio behind innovative first-person shooters like Titanfall, and Apex Legends are trying their hand at a Star Wars property. Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order will be a single-player, third-person action game that takes place after Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith, which means that Jedi have been eradicated from the galaxy. We've only seen a single CGI trailer so far, but the hope is that the upcoming EA Play event that takes place alongside E3 2019 will show us a lot more.


Super Mario Maker 2

Super Mario Maker 2

Super Mario Maker 2 was a big surprise when it was announced during February's big Nintendo Direct presentation. It is, of course, the sequel to the 2015 Wii U game Super Mario Maker- although this did later come to 3DS, too.


Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Breakpoint

Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Breakpoint

Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Breakpoint is the follow-up to 2017's Ghost Recon: Wildlands, though developer Ubisoft is taking a different approach this time around. Breakpoint will have a darker tone, the developer says, in its new fictional New Zealand-esque setting, Aurora.

Aurora is home to Skell Technology, a corporation specializing in AI drone tech. When communication with the company ceases, you're sent to the archipelago to investigate. When you arrive, however, you find yourself not in the role of the hunter, but the hunted.

Throughout Breakpoint, you'll encounter a paramilitary group known as the Wolves, who Ubisoft says are just as skilled on the battlefield as the Ghosts. Because of this, the game places a greater emphasis on stealth. You'll be able to employ drones and hide the bodies of any enemies you kill. Similarly, you can avoid detection by crouching in foliage or covering yourself with mud. The game also features some survival elements; any injuries you sustain need to be treated, and you need to maintain your weapons. Ghost Recon Breakpoint launches for PS4, Xbox One, and PC on October 4.


Wolfenstein: Youngblood

Wolfenstein: Youngblood

Wolfenstein: Youngblood was unveiled at E3 2018, promising a co-op trip through Paris, set in the 1980s. It's a sequel of sorts to the most recent game in the series, Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus, and it stars series protagonist BJ Blazkowicz's twin daughters, Jessica and Sophia, who are working together to continue the fight against the Nazi regime.
