Another week, another look at what is upcoming in the world of video games in the game trailers roundup. It’s an Xbox sort of week this week. The latest iterations of Forza Horizon and Gears of War lead the roundup. Keep in mind that these are Xbox Play Anywhere games so I might just be playing the new Forza game on Windows 10. I say might because early reports about the PC port are less than stellar.
There are also a few other trailers for you to watch to bring the total up to nine trailers to watch from the past week in gaming.
It’s been a while since we’ve done one of these, hasn’t it? Just in time for the holiday shopping season that will see most of the big releases of the year, the Game Trailers Roundup is back again. Hopefully I can stick with it through The Game Awards. After all, the only thing with a higher ratio of trailers to main event than movies is Geoff Keighley’s game awards.
Anyway, today’s roundup has eleven trailers for you to watch. Many of them come from the Tokyo Game Shows but a few are from fresh releases including BioShock’s remastered collection (which everyone says is jank on PC) and the new Destiny expansion.
It wouldn’t be a big PlayStation conference without some teaser videos to show off the power of their upcoming PlayStation 4 Pro. While games weren’t a big part of yesterday’s PlayStation Meeting, there were a few videos to show off the power of the PS4 Pro and HDR. It’s probably a good idea to crank up the resolution for these videos too.
Just when you thought that we wrapped up our E3 coverage, we dug up some more trailers that weren’t unveiled as part of the various press conferences over the course of the week. With the fifteen game trailers in this post, we have posted 109 trailers as part of our E3 coverage this year. Whether you’ve loved this E3 or not, there certainly has been plenty of new footage to watch.
So the PC Gaming Show was back for the second straight year though if you confused the Microsoft press briefing for it, I could understand. I’m not sure how many people were paying attention to this year’s PC Gaming Show because they put it up against Ubisoft’s presser, even if we would have been mostly better off for skipping Ubi’s show. This year’s PC Gaming Show had trailers for 19 games and we have them all for you right now.
Nintendo was the last company to do their E3 presentation. This year, they eschewed from using their Nintendo Direct presentation format and instead did a Nintendo Treehouse let’s stream type of format. The change in format seems to be a result of Nintendo not having too much to show at the moment apart from new Legend of Zelda and Pokemon games.
Day Zero of E3 featured both of the big console manufacturers showing off their wares. Microsoft went first leading with the Xbox One S and taking about 90 minutes to kill it by announcing the Scorpio. In between that, they had a number of games to debut with a few games getting featured billing like Gears of War 4 and ReCore and a number of smaller games.
EA was the first company to show off their upcoming games with their E3 press conference. While we knew what was coming ahead of time (a recurring theme of this E3 so far), they did have some pretty interesting trailers showing off their games. And FIFA has a story mode so I guess some lessons from the amazing Fight Night series live on at EA Sports.
I know that E3 effectively got underway yesterday with the EA and Bethesda press conferences but thanks to leaks, many companies decided to get out front of E3 with announcements and trailers. Before we get to previews for today’s press conferences and recaps of yesterday’s, let’s look at the trailers that were unveiled before E3 got under way.
If ever there was a week to check out all of the big video game trailers in one spot, it’s this week. This week’s roundup is only eight trailers long and it loaded with amazing trailers.
First up are two launch trailers for triple-A games. Tomorrow is the launch of Uncharted 4 (review likely coming in the next couple of weeks) and Friday is the launch of Doom. We have both launch trailers. And the two big triple-A military shooter franchises had announcement trailers for their next games. From Activision is Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare while EA goes old school with Battlefield 1.
