Top 5 Announcements at E3 2015

Uncharted 4 at E3 2015

We are finding it really hard waiting anymore to see the long list of rumoured games that are expected this year at the world’s largest gaming expo. Here is a list of 5 things we are excited would be included in the exclusive top-tier content at the E3 2015. Get on board the hype train.

Uncharted 4

Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End is one of the most anticipated games of Sony’s E3 2015 press conference. Its developers at Naughty Dog seem excited to show off its development progress and the thought of it is apparently hard to contain for those involved. It’s been a long four years wait since the release of Unchartered 3 and we can’t wait to see some real gameplay footage of the 4th part. There have been some rumours that the Naughty Dog may be planning to re-release the original trilogy since many PlayStation owners were unable to play the first three titles.

For those who were hoping to enjoy the game later this year, Naughty Dog announced in March that the project would be delayed until spring 2016 and its release has been narrowed to a date before April.

Project Morpheus and the VR headset at E3 2015

Project Morpheus

At GDC 2015 Sony unveiled a completely updated design of Project Morpheus. The goal with VR was to deliver a sense of presence, giving the player the feeling that they’ve stepped right into the world of a game. The VR improves the entire visual experience as well as the tracking accuracy of Project Morpheus, both of which are critical to achieving that goal. This game points towards a massive shift in the way video games are played and an enormous virtual reality revolution. Sony suggested that it might just also develop a wireless version of the VR headset.

Even though there is still no word on the cost of Project Morpheus, this console product is rumoured to come at a reasonable cost. The release date? Sony has been rather vague about it and points at somewhere in the first half of 2016.

Star Wars: Battlefront

Starwars Battlefront

The Star Wars is said to be one of the most immersive games one could ever play. The mayhem is currently at a high point and there are two Star War titles that we ourselves are looking forward to. While Dice is working on ‘Star Wars: Battlefront’, Visceral Games is working on a completely mysterious unannounced Star Wars game and we’re excited about the direction this mystery title will take.

Star Wars Battlefront allows you partake in 20-on-20 battle scenarios, but on the flip side, there are going to be no space battles or traditional campaigns. The creators must have made up for these exclusions in other areas, but this is all we’ve got on it right now, and more details can be seen at E3 2015. It is scheduled to hit shelves for PS4, PC and Xbox One on November 17.

Halo 5

Halo 5

With its release slated for October 2015, an early look at Halo 5 shows us Master Chief as much bigger and better than it ever was. Five is set eight months after the release of Halo 4 and going to be revealed at E3 2015. It is a new game engine built specifically for Xbox One and 343 Studios ensure that the game runs at 60fps in campaign and multiplayer modes. It looks like the game is going to be one of the biggest Xbox One releases and seems fantastic so far. All hail Halo – the master game.

Microsoft’s HoloLens

Microsoft HoloLens

With Microsoft announcing its partnership with Unity Technologies, HoloLens will have the potential to becoming an amazing platform for gaming, as it will now get games from one of the world’s best game engines. Microsoft will be bringing Xbox games to its futuristic HoloLens headset and this will introduce a radically new experience to all gamers. We are yet to know when we can buy a HoloLense headset but the technology will be displayed at the E3 2015.
