21 Jun 5 Games That (Finally) Got A Release Date at E3 2019
The long awaited, much anticipated Cyberpunk 2077 at last got its release date this E3. We can expect to see it hitting shelves April 16th 2020 and with the addition of everybody’s favourite angsty goth dad Keanu Reeves as Johnny Silverhand I just can’t see any way this won’t be a massive success. The collectors edition (though expensive) gets you a lot of Cyberpunk goodness so diehard CD Projekt Red fans better sit up and pay attention before they all sell out.
The newest trailer for Gears 5 depicted a different side of the game compared to past entries and trailers. Focusing on the seemingly fractured psyche of its lead Kait Diaz over gameplay or story content. A clue perhaps that this will be the most mentally taxing journey yet in the Gears franchise. It will be available to play September 10th 2019 and I for one am ready to see what it has in store.
Halo is coming to PC, rejoice and praise the gods for this most glorious news! Halo Infinite getting a release date (however vague) is also a huge victory – 2020 is already looking to be a great year for games and a terrible year for saving. It’s supposed to be launching on Project Scarlett for Holidays 2020. Seems Xbox wanted to end the year with an almighty bang.
Final Fantasy VII Remake
4 years. This has been 4 years in the making. Now it’s coming and as of 3rd of March 2020 it will be here. As probably the first JRPG to make the transition from an Asian audience to a Western one, FFVII has a special place in many gamers hearts and for good reason. At E3 producer Yoshinori Kitase said “Final Fantasy 7 is a legendary game in the industry and this is a reimagining of that game that goes deeper than before. Our goal is to remake this genre-defining RPG for a new era. Not to make a straight one-to-one copy or remaster – something deeper than that.” Sounds like a reasonable approach and one that was enormously successful for the recent Resident Evil 2 remake.
The Outer Worlds
We know Obsidian, we love Obsidian. Anyone who has played Fallout: New Vegas knows they can create a charming open world better than most. So when Microsoft bought the company and we started seeing hints of F:NV in their new game Outer Worlds, interest was piqued by many. So come October 25th, 2019 we can all experience for ourselves if this is a clone of New Vegas or the beginning of a beautiful new franchise.
