Games Expected/Confirmed to Appear on E3 2018 – PC, Xbox One, PS4, Nintendo Switch

The Electronic Entertainment Expo is by far the biggest gaming event of the year. Developers usually use this time to announce or reveal additional information about their biggest games. The event itself is a huge deal and has thousands in attendance apart from the usual journalists and the pundits.

This year’s E3 is just around the corner and we here at SegmentNext will be taking a look at some of the best games that have been confirmed to make an appearance at this year’s event. We will also mention some of the games that have not yet been confirmed but will probably be a part of the event due to the rumors surrounding them.

Games Expected to Appear on E3 2018

Let’s take a look at all of the games that might end up being a part of E3 2018.

Rage 2

Platforms: PC, Xbox One, PS4
This game has pretty much been confirmed for this year’s E3. The original Rage was quite an interesting experience. Contrary to the popular trend at that time, it was focused on singleplayer. Almost every game at that time wanted to have a massive multiplayer component but Rage was a game that wanted to go back to the classics.

Surely, the game did have modes that required players to play against each other or work together to complete objectives that were related to the singleplayer story, but the main game was all about the campaign. Using the idTech Engine, it had you shooting all of the various different anomalies that existed in the post-apocalyptic world.

Rage 2 is probably going to be even better due to the fact that the graphics of the predecessor were already such a huge hit and yet the technology is now available to make Rage 2 even more stunning.

The Last of Us Part II

Platforms: PS4, PS4 Pro
There really is no need for me to say anything about this game, is there? The Last of Us is considered to be one of the greatest games ever released. Everything from the story to the gameplay is sensational and it has sort of garnered a cult following of its own with fans generating content such as artwork in more ways than one can imagine.

The Last Of Us Part II

The greatest thing about the original game was the fact that the storyline was amazing in every aspect. For that reason, you can expect the second part of the game to be one of the most awaited releases of this generation.

Battlefield V

Platforms: PC, Xbox One, PS4
Battlefield has become the de-facto game for hardcore FPS enthusiasts over Call of Duty. The 2018 iteration of the game has received considerable attention due to the fact that it could be about anything from World War 2 to the Vietnam War.

For that reason, it is safe to assume that the EA booth at E3 will be garnering the presence of a lot of people as they eagerly await to see what they have come up with this year. One thing is for sure, if it is anything like the previous few games in the series, then we have nothing to fear.

Battlefield has always been a game which has been focused on multiplayer. Even though the Bad Company series has had a decent singleplayer campaign, the multiplayer aspect of the game is the reason why almost everyone buys it. DICE has always been trying to refine their formula and has mostly done it with success.

The 2018 game should be no different, and it will definitely be interesting to see all of the new features that come into the game. Personally, I would love to see what EA do in the World War 2 setting as Battlefield 1 was an amazing experience.

The Division 2

Platforms: PC, Xbox One, PS4
Ubisoft seems to be getting better and better at their open-world formula. Even the most recent Assassin’s Creed: Origins departed from the series linear campaign and instead gave the players an open world that they could travel through on horseback or on foot to scout the various different places in ancient Egypt.

The Division could be considered one of the first games which helped Ubisoft get on the right track with their open-world formula. The game might not have been considered a great one at release, but constant updates have confirmed the commitment of Ubisoft to the game and the sequel can only be better.

The Division 2

The first iteration of the series tasked the player with slowly regaining control of New York City one by one. That was not all though, as there was a host of other things that you could do and limitless options for customizations. All of that will surely return in the sequel, but it will be interesting to see what additions they make to the game.

Do they decide to select another city or expand upon the areas of New York that were not a part of the first game? Whatever it is that they decide to do; we will surely be eagerly awaiting the E3 trailer of the game.

Yoshi

Platforms: Nintendo Switch
Yoshi has long been a staple of Nintendo games. With the release of the Switch, we have seen Nintendo make new games for almost all of their characters. Yoshi seems to be the next logical character that will be getting a new version, and we could not be more excited.

Every single one of the Nintendo games for the Switch has so far been quite amazing. Everyone knows how amazing the new Mario is, and Yoshi is expected to be no different! It is not confirmed yet whether we will be getting information about the game on this year’s E3 as of yet, but there have been ample rumors surrounding the game.

I think a lot of eyes will be on Nintendo and whether or not we will be getting to play with the slightly less famous friend of Mario anytime soon.

Life is Strange 2

Platforms: PC, Xbox One, PS4
Personally, Life is Strange is probably one of the absolute best games I have ever played. The story, the atmosphere, and the music have been better than pretty much any other single player game I have played.

In fact, I would go as far as to say that as far as singleplayer games are concerned, Life is Strange is my most favorite game.

We have had a little bit of a prequel with Life is Strange: Before the Storm. A game that is good enough to compare to the original iteration in itself, but a true sequel would actually be amazing.

Although the developers have hinted at the fact that any new Life is Strange games will probably have a story that focuses on something other than the saga of Chloe and Max. Seeing what these developers are capable of and the rumors seem to be spreading that the new game will be announced at this year’s E3.

Lastly, the original game gave you the ability to turn back time while Before the Storm had the ability to backtalk. The new game will probably need to have something like that too and that is perhaps the most exciting part of the new game. We can pretty much be assured of the fact that the new story will be an emotional rollercoaster, but the power that you get could be anything.

NBA 2K19

Platforms: PC, Xbox One, PS4
A surprising addition to this list for those who played NBA 2K18 for sure. NBA 2K18 was an absolute disaster with its micro-transactions that pretty much made the game impossible to play. This game will probably have to be the saving grace of the franchise, because if 2K games end up screwing up this game, then there is probably not going to be any salvation for the series.

The best thing that they can do is remove those god-awful micro-transactions. Without them, the base game was good enough. Once the money-making machines are gone, the next logical step is to have an appropriate progression system in the game which can reward players for their hard work rather than their wallets.

The game obviously has not been confirmed for the expo as of yet, but if we are looking at past trends, then chances are that we will get to see a sneak peak of NBA 2K18 very soon.

Those are the games expected/confirmed to appear on E3 2018. Of course, we will continue to add more games to the list. Let us know your thoughts on the games that are upcoming using the comments section below!
