Many gamers have expressed doubts over the past week since the full reveal of Fallout 76 took place in Los Angeles during E3, the largest electronics entertainment industry event in the world. Bethesda Game Studios has released a lot of information about the game, but through a variety of channels.
The ambiguous nature of their reveal has done little to quell concerns that this new game will indeed be a quality experience. While we at RealGamerNewZ remain optimistic about the title, this skeptical outlook can be understood as a reaction to the fact that the game is a multiplayer online survival set in a semi-persistent shared world. Attempts at this genre have been lacking in the past, and even plagued by many issues that were repeated and remain unsolved issues in game design. Fans are worried Fallout 76 will suffer the same fate, although there’s evidence to believe that Bethesda’s approach will be better than previous entries in the genre.

An extended look at Death Stranding as well as Sony’s other first party titles was given, but not the deep dives we were promised. Instead, Sony has delivered incredible surprises after fooling everyone into a false sense of security. We thought they wouldn’t announce anything and just focus on their four main games. During the start of the show, they suffered technical difficulties which almost ruined the entire event.
However, the surprises started to make up for it and PS4 fans were given plenty of reasons to be excited for this year’s PlayStation E3 Press Conference. All in all, the show did end abruptly and had a distinct lack of flow compared to past shows. Sony needs to try harder

Today Square Enix tempered expectations before their E3 Press Conference tomorrow at 10AM Pacific Time by revealing the release date of Kingdom Hearts III. One of the longest waits in gaming history is soon coming to an end thanks to the Unreal Engine 4 development path Square Enix has chosen for their current lineup of games. Originally announced at E3 2013, but in pre-development since as early as 2006, KH3 has undergone a number of iterations and so much money, hard work, and love has been poured into the project that it’s surreal to think fans will soon get their hands on it.

As part of a bundle of rumors for the PlayStation 4, Bethesda is said to be launching Fallout Shelter for this generation’s top selling game console during their E3 2018 Press Conference which takes place tomorrow at 6:30PM. Fallout Shelter was revealed and launched during E3 2015 and began its journey on iOS and Android smartphones. In 2016 the game hit the PC Gaming market. The year after it landed on Xbox ONE. It’s only natural that this year we could see the title available for PS4 as well, but the rumor doesn’t necessarily end there.

A few days ago RPG gamers went crazy at the possibility of a new Remaster for the beloved 2008 / 2009 title from Namco Tales Studio, Tales of Vesperia. Well known as practically the only Tales game to ever grace the Xbox platforms when it dropped on Xbox 360, although the later PlayStation 3 version in 2009 new bosses, enemies, dungeons, party members, and full voice acting. Some of the features on the Xbox 360 version of the game had to be cut due to the fact that Microsoft decided to use DVD discs for their games back then, whereas Sony used Blu-ray discs on PS3. Fans now wonder if this rumored remaster of the game will arrive on both consoles.

Formerly a subsidiary of Square Enix, IO Interactive regained independence last year shortly after E3 2017 and were able to bring with them the Hitman IP which they created 18 years ago giving players the choice between a brutal rush or stealth operation for each mission. One of the main features the game promised and delivered on was excellent gun-play, the ability to disguise one’s self with costumes and props, and a variety of ways to complete the objectives each level laid out for the player.
Over the years we’ve seen many Hitman games across a few different publishers but IO Interactive has always wanted to get back to their roots while evolving the original game’s premise further. Under Square Enix, Hitman has seen some interesting titles such as Hitman: Absolution and Hitman Go.
In a new partnership with Warner Bros. Interactive publishing a title that IO Interactive has announced today, called Hitman 2, we hope to see this vision truly realized. It would seem the deal with WB Games could be a one-off, with IO Interactive praising their new independence. The game has a lot to live up to by bearing the same name as Hitman 2: Silent Assassin, the 2002 release on PC, PlayStation 2, Original Xbox, and GameCube (and my personal favorite in the series).

Set in Sweden during the 1980s, a new co-op focused, open world game for Xbox, PlayStation, and PC has been given the formal announcement treatment after light reporting on it took place earlier this year. Avalanche Studios is working on RAGE 2 for Bethesda and is well known for being the development studio behind Just Cause which is published by Square Enix. This time around, Avalanche will publish their own game by themselves. The Apex engine from the Just Cause titles belongs to Avalanche, and will be used for the making of this game which will release in 2019.

Days Gone is the first original project from SIE Bend (AKA Sony Bend), a development studio well known for titles like Uncharted: Golden Abyss on PlayStation Vita. The company had been working on 4 more Vita titles including an inFamous spin-off when Sony pulled the plug. This led to a great opportunity though, for Sony Bend to show off what they’ve learned over the years by developing an open world, survival sandbox game with zombies.
Days Gone has said to be similar in some ways to State of Decay but with a potentially more narrow and polished scope. The focus of a cinematic atmosphere and well refined gameplay are staples of Days Gone that players will expect to be showcased at this year’s Sony E3 in which a deep dive strategy with four major games will be in the spotlight. Meanwhile, the zombie survival horror genre presumably being taken over by The Last of Us Part Two this winter (if release date predictions come true at E3).
