While some avid players can make it to the E3 convention that takes place in Los Angeles, the majority can only know the latest news from the online sources. As you can imagine, there is a lot of news coming from the convention, and most of them are quite exciting. In this article, you will find out about the best games you will be able to play fairly soon.

The Avengers

Release date: 15 May 2020

The Avengers game is finally happening, but the fans still have to wait until the next year to give it a try. It is obvious that Square Enix made sure that the game is filled with a lot of action, even though it’s still difficult to tell based on the provided footage. What we can see is that the game is not a continuation of the cinematic experience, as the characters don’t look like they do in the movies. The fans of the Marvel Universe can definitely expect something exciting.

Final Fantasy VII Remake

Release date: 3 March 2020

If you are a fan of the classic Final Fantasy VII released in 1997, you will be happy to hear that the game remake is just around the corner. Based on the trailer provided by the developers, you can expect the same atmosphere and characters as in the original but with modern graphics and more realistic combat action. Currently, we got to see only the first hour of the storyline in the trailer, so there are many surprises awaiting the fans.

The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening

There is no doubt that Cyberpunk 2077 looks epic and one of the reasons it stands out so much is thanks to Keanu Reeves. The actor not only appears as a character in this game, but he also visited Microsoft’s briefing. The game has impressive graphics and is definitely worth the wait, as it will be released next spring.

Doom Eternal

Last year, we got a chance to see what Doom Eternal is all about at QuakeCon while a trailer released at E3 brings more details and gameplay footage. This game, which will become available this November, boasts a completely new multiplayer mode – one Doomguy against two demons. It’s an amazing update, and the entire trailer looks quite promising.

Yet another game to be released in November is Pokémon Sword and Shield, and all the fans of the franchise can expect new Pokemon, various ways of training them, and more battling opportunities.

Another thing to mention is the Max Raid Battles feature in which you can play with four other players in co-op matches.

Elden Ring

Release date: Will be announced later

The trailer for Elden Ring doesn’t reveal much but just the thought of who developed this game makes players excited about this release. FromSoftware’s game is created in collaboration with George R.R. Martin, the author responsible for ‘Game of Thrones’, so we can definitely expect quite an interesting storyline in the game. Right now, there is little information to go off but we expect only the best from the designer Hidetaka Miyazaki and the excellent fantasy writer. At the moment, the release date is unknown but we hope the game will be quite a challenge.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons

Release date: 20 March 2020

Nintendo didn’t disappoint and brought the first trailer for Animal Crossing to E3 for the enjoyment of fans. While most of us expected the game to become available sooner than 2020, the game is still something we are interested to dive into when it comes out.

Based on what we saw, the game doesn’t offer a lot of surprised in terms of its gameplay and uses the proven methods that work. If you enjoyed it before, you are likely to continue the series with pleasure.

Baldur's Gate III

Available for: PC
Release date: Will be announced later

It has been a long time since we got something new related to Baldur’s Gate. The gaming series made the BioWare gaming company what they are today years ago and it is a franchise loved by many.

This time, it’s Larian Studios who decided to bring the game to its glory in the modern days and all we have at the moment is a teaser. Apparently, there is still a lot that has to be done before a game is released, which is why we are not given any dates. Still, the prospect of the Baldur’s Gate return is extremely exciting.

Even More Gaming Opportunities

The gaming world continues to expand and improve in everything from graphics to gameplay. This year’s E3 brought a lot of trailers for the upcoming games and made fans excited for the future releases. While some games will still be available next year, there are certainly a lot of games to be excited about this fall and more to look forward to in 2020.
