E3 2018: What to expect from this year’s gaming event

E3, the largest gaming event of the year, is just around the corner. Every year, big names in the industry showcase their latest gaming titles as well as new hardware products. Last year, Microsoft officially announced the Xbox One X, the world’s most powerful gaming console at the event. The Xbox One X has been available since November 2017, but it still lacks big exclusive game titles that help it overthrow the Sony PlayStation.

At this year’s E3 event, we are expecting to see the debut of a lot of fan-favorite gaming titles from big names like Sony, EA, Microsoft, and Bethesda. Some gaming makers are giving users some tips regarding what they will show off at this year’s event, ranging from teaser trailer to posters.

In the section below, we are going to show you what we are expecting from this year’s E3 event. For some background, E3 2018 will kick off on June 12 and will run through June 14 at the Los Angeles Convention Center.

  1. Sony

Sony is one of the biggest names in the gaming industry. The Japanese firm now holds the exclusive rights to launch a wide range of gaming titles out there, ranging from Uncharted series to the classic God of War. The Sony PlayStation 4 is one of the most successful gaming consoles in the history, with more than 70 million units sold worldwide.

We are expecting to see previews of Sony’s upcoming gaming titles at this year’s event. According to leaks and reports, the Japanese firm will showcase its exclusive games at E3 2018, including Spider-Man, Ghost of Tsushima, and Death Stranding.

One of the most anticipated titles at E3 2018 is the Last of Us Part 2. The Last of Us is one of the best video games ever released to the public. First debuted for the PlayStation 3, the game quickly topped the best-selling titles on the market, with 1.3 million units worldwide. The Last of Us received positive reviews, with most critics praising its storyline, gameplay, and visual design.

The Last of Us part 2 was first announced back in 2016, with the public release expected to arrive in 2019. At this year’s E3, we are expecting to see Sony debut the first gameplay of the game as well as the release date. However, the Last of US part 2 is not the only gaming title we want to see at this year’s event as Sony will show off a lot more.

Sources say that Sony will debut a new gameplay of the upcoming Spider-Man video game at E3. At last year’s event, Sony demoed the first gameplay of the game, with the release date set for 2018. Earlier this year, Sony announced that the game would hit the market on September 7. 2018.

  1. Microsoft

Microsoft’s Xbox One is one of the best-selling gaming consoles on the market. However, the Xbox One is falling behind the Sony Play Station due to lack of exclusive gaming titles. The company has a lot of work to do to overthrow Sony this year.

Last year, the Redmond company announced the Xbox One X, the most powerful console in the world. However, the Xbox One X is struggling to compete with the PlayStation 4 Pro as the One X has seen a slow sales performance since the launch day. We wish to see more exclusive games from Microsoft this year to make the most of the Xbox One X’s powerful hardware.

Microsoft’s recently-released State of Decay 2 and Sea of Thieves failed to live up to expectations. Sources say that Microsoft will debut Gears of War 5 at this year’s event. Microsoft’s Gears of War series is the best-selling gaming title on the Xbox gaming console. Gears of War 4 received mostly positive reviews from gamers worldwide at launch, with millions of units sold.

  1. EA

EA is one of the largest gaming companies in the world. The company’s gaming title, Star war Battlefront 2 was met with negative reviews last year due to its new Micro-transactions system. EA is trying to do its best to recover trust among gamers in the world.

In reality, the American giant will hold a separate event called EA Play before E3 kicks off. EA has confirmed that gamers will be able to play some upcoming titles like FIFA 2019, NHL 19, and NBA 19.

Besides, we are expecting to see the first gameplay of its upcoming Battlefield series, Battlefield 5. Last month, the company teased a trailer of its new shooter game, Battlefield 5. The trailer was met with a lot of controversy at launch. Battlefield 5 will launch worldwide on October 19 this year, one week later than its main rival, Call of Duty Black Ops 4.
