Another E3 has come and gone, and with it, an overwhelming amount of video game announcements. But fret not! I have all the news for you in a nice, small serving! I’m gonna list all of the things I think you should know, along with links to trailers, Kickstarter pages, etc…
- Team ICO’s The Last Guardian is still alive and kicking after 8 years! Expect to see this PS4 exclusive in 2016.
- Shenmue 3, the long-awaited conclusion to the popular Dreamcast trilogy, is being kickstarted. It broke the Guinness World Record for being the fastest game to raise $1 million on a crowdsourcing platform (1 hour, 42 minutes). With 26 days to go, they’ve already raised $3,505,307 out of their $2M goal. Sega will not have a role in development. Shenmue 3 will also be available on PC.
- Horizon: Zero dawn is the newest title from Killzone studio Guerrilla Games, and it looks pretty cool. The trailer features a lady warrior fighting robot dinosaurs — but the main protagonist almost wasn’t a woman at all.
- Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, of course.
