A little over 2 weeks ago we posted a few E3 leaks, rumours and confirmations, and in that post said that don’t be surprised if there is a follow up with more news as stuff starts to find it’s way out. Well, boy has it been hectic. Here’s what we’ve seen confirmed and more rumours surfacing just 2 weeks before the show.
So the reveal event happened and Battlefield V was confirmed to be set in WW2, but it appears to have taken inspiration from the Bad Company series and looks a lot more wacky than the WW2 game we saw last year with Call of Duty.
Call of Duty Black Ops IIII
Yup, I hate the numerals like that too, but since the last post Activision have given us a full blow out of Black Ops IIII. There is no campaign at all in the game, it’s just a multiplayer game this year and now includes a Battle Royal mode as well as more Zombie Maps.
Assassins Creed Odyssey
Just confirmed this morning, a cheeky little tweet from the Assassins Creed twitter account saying see you at E3.
Pokemon Let’s Go Pikachu & Let’s Go Eevee
Pokemon is coming to the Switch. A return to Kanto and the original 151 Pokemon. It’s being dubbed as a remake of Yellow version as you travel with your Pikachu or Eevee following you. It’s been toned down massively though from your regular Pokemon game and features some mechanics seen in the mobile game Pokemon Go. A slight turn off for me personally, but this is to entice the Go players to pick up a switch. A “Proper” full fledged Pokemon RPG is still on track for 2019 apparently.
Team Sonic Racing
Yay, Team Sonic Racing out of nowhere.
Bethesda will have no surprises at all at E3 at this rate with Rage 2 and Fallout being revealed. Fallout 76 is apparently an online survival RPG like Rust & Day Z.
Square-Enix yesterday revealed Hitman 2. It will be a full game this time from release, deciding to ditch the episodic formula.
Devil May Cry V
It’s one of the longest running rumours we’ve had now, but an Austrian retailer has since listed Devil May Cry 5 for PS4 and Xbox One.
Just Cause 4
Steam had a picture on their store about pre-ordering Just Cause 4. Seems a given now doesn’t it?
Switch 3rd Party Games
And it seems that the Nintendo Switch is about to receive an influx of 3rd party support if the rumours are correct. Fortnite, Dragon Ball Z, Paladins and Overcooked 2 are a few that have seen some form of leak.
So the first conference starts tomorrow with EA. And then it’s full systems go Sunday night. I can’t wait. Hopefully nothing else leaks out before then.
