Wideo Wednesday: E3 trailer edition, come get them while they're hot
The biggest marketing event for the games industry is here and it's filled with triple A title trailers. No surprise here as we've got a whole range of huge hitters for 2013 and I've conveniently put together a list for you, of what I think are some of the best videos so far. So kick back and enjoy the shows!
Watch Dogs - E3 2013 trailer "Exposed"
PRISM: The Game -- I mean Watch Dogs -- goes all out with a CG filled trailer showing the protagonist using technology found all over the city to take out an underground smuggling ring of mobsters. Who says surveillance is only used for evil? Hi PRISM, please don't arrest me.
Total War: Rome II - E3 2013 Trailer
The sequel to my absolute favourite Total War game is finally coming out this year. The trailer shows some amazing gameplay footage of Roman legions engaging in combat -- literally thousands of digital soldiers fighting for you under the banner of mother Rome in exquisite detail. What more could you want from a strategy game? Form up legionnaires! TESTUDO!
Thief 4 Trailer
A much loved franchise finally makes a big return with the upcoming Thief 4 slated for release in 2014. If you love stealth games then this is certainly THE game for you. If you've been a Thief fan since the beginning, then there's nothing more to say. Enjoy the trailer!
Command & Conquer - E3 2013 Official Trailer - "Welcome Back, General"
C&C is a franchise I grew up with and I'm interested to see how they've rebooted C&C Generals on the gorgeous Frostbite 2 engine. I'll admit I'm a bit skeptical of the Free to Play model, but I'm willing to take a chance. Check it out and let me know what you think!
Saints Row IV - War for Humanity Trailer
The ridiculousness never ends with the Saints Row franchise, and this trailer only strengthens how bizarre and insane it seems to be with every passing version. This trailer shows what I can only describe to be the Matrix meets Independence Day, meets Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter, meets.... Ok I give up, it's fucking weird. But it looks like a ton of fun, especially for some open world coop mayhem.
Tom Clancy's The Division - E3 gameplay reveal
I'm calling it now. This is probably going to be E3 Best of Show. The fidelity and fluidity of gameplay is amazing. I won't give it away but towards the end of the video I figured out things weren't exactly as scripted as they seemed. You better check out the video to see for yourself! This is my absolute favourite video for E3 so far!
Battlefield 4 -- E3 Multiplayer Gameplay -- Best Moments
Totally pumped for this one. We at OMGeek were big on BF3, and this new release promises a lot more features like the Commander mode and more destructibility as demonstrated in the gameplay video. If you love team-based shooters with top-of-the-line graphics fidelity, then you'll be very pleased to hear it's coming out October 29!
The Order: 1886 - E3 2013 reveal trailer
Absolutely loving the Victorian Steampunk environment with magical weaponry and gadgetry. This is a PS4 trailer and claims it's in-engine. Very impressive indeed. Watch as Mentlegen blow away werewolves in Victorian cobblestoned London.
Titanfall: Official E3 Announce Trailer
Holy hell, can you believe this was made on Valve's Source engine? Albeit heavily modified but still, wow! This is definitely something we'll be watching very closely for some multiplayer action in the community. Check out the trailer now!
