2. Tons of info about Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order Revealed We learned a lot about Fallen Order at E3 during the gameplay demo. In Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order you'll play as Cal Kestis, who's mission is to rebuild the Jedi Order. This game will be completely narrative focused and single player. And it comes to PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 on November 15th of this year.
3. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare This is a reimagining of the franchise largely because the last Modern Warfare ended in nuclear warfare. A fresh start means they can bring Modern Warfare back to where it is supposed to be, the modern and current times. Also this game will have crossplay between Xbox, PlayStation 4, and PC. The game will release on October 25th of this year. 4. Gears of War 5 There's a new mode called 'Escape' that is inspired by Horde speed runs and it is a mix between Horde and Versus. The main goal of the mode is to detonate a bomb within a swarm hive and then escape with your life. This will have a "customizable difficulty system" so you can tune Escape to be whatever amount of challenging you wish. There will also be leaderboards to track your skills. Players will also have access to a new map builder tool to build their own hives to challenge themselves or one another. -----------------------------------
