Dennis "The Kidd"s Review of E3 2019
PS4, XBOX One, PC - Release Date: May 15, 2020
The major highlight for me was the All Star Cast they got for this game, Jeff Schine takes the mantle as the super-soldier, Captain America, Travis Willingham delivers a more-than-worthy performance for Thor Odinson, the God of Thunder, and Troy Baker brings the dual personalities of Bruce Banner and the Hulk to life. Laura Bailey is the ultimate tactical spy, Black Widow, and Nolan North suits up as the charismatic Iron Man, Tony Stark.
It was also confirmed that they will add new playable characters and new missions and locations in the future for no fee. The game Director confirmed on an interview that the game takes place in its own Universe and that there will be no pay to win loot boxes or micro transactions which is very good news.
PS4 - Release Date: March 3, 2020
Nomura was on stage saying that the first version of the game will only take place in Midgard and will have multiple discs worth of content. Fans also finally got to see the redesigned Tifa which I absolutely love.
Xbox One, PC - Release Date: TBA
Nitendo Switch - Release Date: LoL
Xbox One, PS4, PC, Stadio - Release Date: March 6, 2020
Legion allows for the player to scan the perks of any NPC in the game and recruit them to Deadsec as a playable character. Essentially meaning that almost all the NPC’s in the game are playable from agile young black men to fragile old ladies.
This game has massive potential and I hope it does well seeing as WD2 didn’t quite get the recognition it deserved for how good of a game it was. Look out for this one folks.
Xbox One, PS4, PC, Stadio - Release Date: April 16, 2020
This years behind closed doors gameplay Demo showed various playthroughs which confirmed that the player can beat the game without killing anyone. It very much is an Immersive sim in the vein of DisHonored and Deus Ex with multiple ways to play customize and specialize your character.
Player Agency seems to be of the utmost importance in this new demo, there are multiple ways conversations and missions can go based not only on the dialogue options but also on the players background chosen. Hopefully the demo is released online soon so that the public can see as well.
Xbox One, PC - Release Date: Q3, 2020
The specs of the brand new Scarlett were not fully revealed but they did announce that they are using AMD’s Zen 2 architecture for their processor as well also have SSD’s that will also function as Virtual Ram which means dramatically increased load times. The Console also boasts GDDR6 Memory which is a great upgrade from the Xbox One X. Phil said the console is targeting native 8K, 120 Fps gaming which is incredible and unfathomable. There was no talk of price points but for now we can deduce that the console will be pricey, here is to hoping a year and a half helps with this.
Phil Spencer in a GiantBomb Interview confirmed that the company still has plans to release future consoles even if they are heavily endorsing Project Xcloud. So for now we can believe that this is not the last piece of dedicated gaming hardware that the company will produce. We also know that the console will have a disc drive.
Xbox One, Project Xcloud, PC - Release Date: Live Now
Those were my personal highlights, special mentions go out to FIFA 20 for adding a FIFA street game mode, Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order, Dying Light 2, Animal Crossing and Police Stories and Ikumi Nakamura! .
So what were your highlights and what are you most looking forward to?
