E3 is happening, which means video game trailers are dropping all over the place. If you’re into gaming culture, this is definitely a time to be getting giddy with excitement while staying up to watch all the live press conferences.
E3 officially begins today (June 14), but there’s already been a ton of exciting content dropped from the various presentations. Here’s 10 amazing trailers we’ve seen so far.
Spider-Man PS4 (Working Title)
Sony announced a brand new exclusive Spider-Man game coming to the PS4 and released the teaser above. There’s also a synopsis and some story information below:
Starring the world’s most iconic Super Hero, Spider-Man PS4 (working title) features the acrobatic abilities, improvisation and web-slinging that the wall-crawler is famous for, while also introducing elements never-before-seen in a Spider-Man game. From traversing with parkour and utilizing the environment, to new combat and blockbuster set pieces, it’s Spider-Man unlike any you’ve played before.
Marvel and Insomniac Games have teamed up to create a brand-new and authentic Spider-Man story. This isn’t the Spider-Man you’ve met before, or seen in a movie. This is an experienced Peter Parker who’s more masterful at fighting big crime in New York City. At the same time he’s struggling to balance his chaotic personal life and career while the fate of nine million New Yorkers rests upon his shoulders.
South Park: The Fractured but Whole
Ubisoft released the trailer for the sequel to South Park: The Stick of Truth. They also revealed that Stick of Truth will come to PS4 and Xbox One, with gamers receiving both games when they pre-order The Fractured but Whole.
Cartman is determined to turn Coon and Friends into the biggest superhero franchise of all time, but can the greatest team of superheroes ever assembled decide whose movie should come first?
From the creators of South Park, Trey Parker and Matt Stone, comes South Park: The Fractured but Whole, a sequel to the award-winning South Park: The Stick of Truth.
God of War
Sony were busy. They also unveiled a visually striking demo for a new God of War game, featuring an older Kratos transported from Greek to Norse mythology. Sony had a play-through onstage, revealing Kratos’ son learning to hunt deer from his father. This relationship is believed to be central to the game.
Resident Evil 7: Biohazard
Resident Evil 7 was announced to rapturous applause and a chilling demo was the tip of the iceberg. Excitingly, Resident Evil 7 will be one of the central titles playable on the Playstation VR headset.
“While Resident Evil 7 draws from the series’ roots of atmospheric survival horror, it also delivers a whole new level of terror,” reads the Capcom blog. “In the classic Resident Evil games of yesteryear, players braced for fear in the first-person via the creepy door-opening scenes, and Resident Evil 7 ramps up that tension with an immersive first-person view and a photorealistic graphical style.”
LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens
Sony caused an awakening in the Force with the launch of a new demo for LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens, due to be released June 28.
The demo’s synopsis: “Be the first to play LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens! Download the demo today to join Rey, Finn, and BB-8 as they evade the villainous First Order. Engage in Blaster Battles with Stormtroopers, use Multi-Builds to race through Niima Outpost, and dogfight with TIE Fighters through derelict Imperial Star Destroyers in the Millennium Falcon before escaping Jakku!”
Batman Arkham VR
Sony also revealed today that Batman Arkham VR is coming to PlayStation VR in October 2016, in a tantalising murder mystery with you as the Dark Knight.
“One of the things that Arkham fans have been asking for is the opportunity to explore some of the most iconic locations in Batman’s universe such as Wayne Manor and the Batcave. For the first time in a Rocksteady Arkham story, Batman: Arkham VR offers players the chance to do exactly that – to feel that unique sense of presence in these legendary locations through virtual reality. If you’ve ever wondered how it would feel to be Bruce Wayne surrounded by the finery of Wayne Manor, then descend into the Batcave to put on the iconic Batsuit, you’ll know why we’re so excited about putting the game in players’ hands.”
