Another year, another E3 (if we all choose to forget about 2020). A lot’s changed since the last Electronic Entertainment Expo, including the fact that now Xbox and Bethesda are one big happy family. So with that in mind: What upcoming announcement has you the most amped?
Mind you, there’s no true guarantee of what’s to come regarding specific unveilings and announcements. The most anticipated games may only present brief snippets of gameplay footage or CGI trailers. And let’s not forget how often E3 demos and previews have been known to misrepresent games (be they Halo 2, Watch_Dogs, Star Wars Kinect, or any other infamous E3 fakeout from the gaming industry’s lead companies).
Alternatively, there’s the risk that games will be shown as they truly are instead of being misleadingly dolled up, leading to situations like Halo Infinite’s very rough reveal that gave rise to Craig the Brute. No matter how you slice it, there’s an incredible chance E3 will be full of disappointment. Unless!
Unless you don’t get your hopes up. Remember Bethesda’s Fallout 76 E3 previews? Or CDPR’s Cyberpunk 2077 showcases? Die a gaming hero, or live long enough to see yourself misrepresent things at E3 with the assistance of Keanu Reeves during the Xbox showcase. Fingers crossed 2021 changes the E3 trend and gives us lots of juicy, authentic, and accurate gameplay to get hyped over.
