So. The Beyond Good and Evil 2 trailer.

I take it this is something?

I mean, they promised this last year, and Beyond Good and Evil 2 looked fun then – but this trailer is apparently making the fans drool.  Or stare at the screen. Or twitch a little. This trailer is definitely in a different style than the previous trailer.

But, of course, the important question is: will this be on the PC?  You understand my interest in that question.

The Xbox E3 Fallout 76 trailer.

[UPDATE]: Fully online play, multiplayer, build settlements anywhere, and you can launch nuclear weapons. November 14th, 2018.  I am… I’d feel better if I thought that there’d be no-PVP zones.

 

Definitely not DC.

This is just what they showed at the Xbox conference. The Bethesda one might have more.  Guess I’ll find out!

PS: The Fallout 4 modders are going to love this.

The E3 press conference schedule.

Pretty straightforward:

EA kicks things off on Saturday, June 9, with its EA Play briefing, while Microsoft and Bethesda will follow on Sunday afternoon and evening, respectively. Devolver Digital, a relative newcomer to E3 press conferences, will also host one on Sunday. Square Enix follows these on Monday morning; Ubisoft then takes its turn in the afternoon, with Sony’s presentation slated for later that evening. The PC Gaming Show also happens on Monday. Nintendo then concludes the press conferences with its briefing on Tuesday morning.

CD Projekt Red trademarks ‘Cyberpunk 2077.’

Just in time for E3: “The studio behind the hit role-playing game series The Witcher might have an announcement planned for E3. The Polish developer filed a trademark for Cyberpunk 2077 with the European Union Intellectual Property Office on June 4. The trademark is currently under examination, and it could mean that CD Projekt RED has big plans for E3 next week.”  This is not a confirmation that CD Projekt Red will be showcasing Cyberpunk 2077 at E3, of course.  As far as I know, CDPR doesn’t even have a press conference scheduled*.

But E3 would be a place to show their new game off… am I indulging in wishful thinking? I probably am indulging in wishful thinking. But it seems logical, even so.

*Note that the lack of a press conference is not resulting in a lack of press.

The best E3 rumors.

…Yeah, it’s weird that I’m into stuff like E3 now.  Anyway, here are the top three things that I’m interested in:

  1. We should hear a good bit more about Fallout 76 at that point from Bethesda.  The rumor mill seems to be coalescing around the theory that it’s a survival RPG. I could play that.  In fact, I was playing that with Conan Exiles, and I’ll be back to play it soon as soon as I think that the game’s stable*. Unless Fallout 76 comes out before then.
  2. They say that CD Projekt Red will be showing off a RPG at E3.  That RPG has to be Cyberpunk 2077. It simply has to.  The universe cannot survive it being anything else. — Unless it was another Witcher title. I’d forgive them for doing that.
  3. Nintendo Switch games.  Since my son is the proud owner of one now — and I’m very maturely waiting on picking up Breath of the Wild until things calm down on that** — I’d rather like to know what games are going to be available on that platform. And if any of them are going to be cheaper than forty bucks. Although I suspect that the answer to that last one is going to be hearty, cynical laughter.

So, hey, CD Projekt Red’s bringing an RPG to E3.

I wonder what it could possibly be?

More evidence has come to light that The Witcher developer CD Projekt Red may be gearing up to make some kind of announcement at E3 2018 next month.

The developer, which has already confirmed it will attend E3, is listed on the event’s website under the “RPG” category. Based on the listing, it appears the studio has an RPG for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC to talk about during the year’s biggest gaming show.

E3 coming up next week.

So far, I’ve heard baseless rumors about Cyberpunk 2077 and Mass Effect: Andromeda. And, of course, the not-baseless rumor about the new Assassin’s Creed title. And as for Bethesda, well: have a really messed-up rumor, fresh and hot:

“[Starfield] is going to be a sci-fi open world RPG in typical Bethesda first person fashion. It’s going to feature 5-10 races there’s still some debate on what should and shouldn’t go in and takes place in the Fallout universe just so far in the future and far away from Earth that it’ll only be mentioned in hints. This is part of an ongoing planned interconnected universe of every Bethesda franchise. They gave hints of this by implying the Brotherhood of Steel created Nirnroot in Fallout 4. They’re getting a little wacky with the lore and using “Elder Scrolls time wounds” to justify lore inconsistencies.

“Basically, Fallout is the beginning of the timeline, Starfield is the middle, and Elder Scrolls is Far Future.
