With Sony and Microsoft showing off all-new hardware at E3, there too comes the games. While Nintendo played it safe with a new Animal Crossing and Super Smash Bros. for their butt system, the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 showed off some surprising titles.
Over at Microsoft, 343 Industries debuted a teaser for an all new Halo title. Developed on a new engine, running 60 frames a second, Halo 5 will see Master Chief kick-space butt once more. The trailer didn’t reveal much, just a ton of sand and the Chief in a poncho. Check it out below:
MORE AFTER THE JUMP
Fans of the Mad Max franchise will be happy to learn that Avalanche Studios, the studio behind the open-world franchise Just Cause, are currently in production of a Mad Max game due out in 2014. Placing you in the role of Max Rockatansky, the game will be released across all platforms supposedly in time for the release of Mad Max: Fury Road. There’s no other information to go on, but man does the trailer look impressive.
And finally, one of the more visually compelling of the trailers is Beyond Two Souls from Quantic Dream and Sony Computer Entertainment, the same people who brought you Heavy Rain. Exploring the concept of life after death and starring Hollywood actors Ellen Page and Willem Defoe the psychological action thriller will be released later this year on October 8th. Seeing as their previous effort with Heavy Rain was a PlayStation exclusive, expect the same type of treatment this time around.
Out of all the titles announced so far Beyond Two Souls has been one of the more controversial of the three, with players discovering the possibility of an afterlife after death, but it’s also one of the most original. It’ll be fun to see how different these games are in a few months once more information is revealed.
