From Cyberpunk 2077 to The Last of Us: Part 2, here are the very best trailers of this year’s show.
Day: June 13, 2018
Another E3 has come and gone, with the next calendar year pretty much laid out in terms of new game releases. Unlike most years, no publisher seemed to have a true megaton announcement up their sleeve. Sony primarily talked up games we already knew about such as The Last of Us Part II, Microsoft put a large focus on games without really addressing the Xbox One’s recent struggles, and Nintendo doubled down on Super Smash Bros. Ultimate and not much else. That being said, it wasn’t really a down year either, as there were a lot of games to get excited about, with titles such as Ghosts of Tsushima, Rage 2, Cyberpunk 2077, and Assassin’s Creed Odyssey having particularly strong showings (just to name a few of the dozens of games we’re excited for).

Suker Punch’s samurai action title, Ghost of Tsushima, was showcased during PlayStation’s E3 2018 briefing. The gameplay showcased in the briefing featured some sequences with very quick interactions and duels, and most of the questions were directed towards how Sucker Punch managed the game’s difficulty settings. WCCFTech managed to know from Sucker Punch’s co-founder Chris Zimmerman that the development team managed to create several difficulty settings to cater for all playing styles.
Bandai Namco’s fighting title, Soulcalibur VI, finally has a release date.
Fans of Square Enix’s Kingdom Hearts III, the third main instalment in the franchise and twelfth in total, were anticipating a 2018 release date announcement, however, the team didn’t feel it was the right time.
Naughty Dog’s The Last of Us 2, the sequel to the narrative survival title and one of the most critically acclaimed titles, The Last of Us, will feature violent action sequences. Director Neil Druckmann was recently featured in an interview with Kotaku, where he revealed the game’s development team didn’t want them to be mindless and pointless. Instead, they want players to feel the impact of their actions how it even affects people close to them, describing it as “the most honest way” to depict the post-apocalyptic nature of The Last of Us II.
