The Daily Moot: E3 Edition! (6/11/18)
Happy E3 week Mooties! This week The Daily Moot is going to be focused on E3, covering the most exciting recent announcements on a day by day basis. We will get back to our normal structure next week, but in the meantime lets get right into it! 1. The Elder Scrolls 6 Announced
Finally, we have confirmation that we will eventually get another Elder Scrolls game. At the end of Bethesda’s E3 conference, which was awesome by the way, there was a short trailer that showed some mountains and the words “The Elder Scrolls 6.” With no mention of a release date or even a working title, we have to assume it will be at least a couple years until this game comes out. But it is coming, and for now that is good enough.
2. Halo Infinite Announced Microsoft hit the ground running in their E3 presentation with the reveal of Halo Infinite, the next game in the historic Halo series. Halo Infinite will feature Master Chief as the main character to appease fans who were upset with his minor role in Halo 5. The game will also utilize a new engine created by 343 Industries specifically for Halo Infinite. Finally, the game will feature a new modern art style to update Master Chief’s look. Watch the trailer in the article linked below.
3. Gears of War 5 Announced During Microsoft’s press conference they also announced the continuation of another popular series, Gears of War. Gears of War 5 will focus on Kait, one of the characters introduced in Gears 4. The newest game in the Gears of War series seems to focus on exploring on your own more than previous games. Gears of War 5 is releasing next year and you can watch the trailer in the article linked below.
4. Kingdom Hearts 3 Trailer Reveals More Disney Characters Although Square Enix had already announced Kingdom Hearts 3, many fans were excited for E3 in hopes of learning more details about the new title. While there was a trailer, it didn’t reveal much new about the game. The trailer did, however, reveal that the loveable main character from Ratatouille, Remy, will make an appearance in the new game. The trailer also showed characters from Monsters Inc., Toy Story, Tangled, and Frozen. Kingdom Hearts 3 will be releasing in January of 2019.
5. Just Cause 4 Gets a Release Date We already knew about Just Cause 4 due to leaks over the last few weeks, but the developers gave us more concrete details about the game during the Microsoft conference at E3. We now know the game will release on December 4th of this year. Just Cause 4 looks similar to previous iterations of the game, with some small updates. A new game engine allows for dynamic weather, which is showcased in the gameplay trailer. Otherwise, it is a traditional Just Cause game with open world gameplay, an assortment of vehicles, and of course classic wingsuit action.
