Perhaps the most anticipated PS4 indie, No Man’s Sky had a brand new trailer debut on Sony’s main stage. The last we heard of Hello Game’s ambitious space explorer, the studio had been flooded and the game’s fate unsure. Making a triumphant return to the big stage, No Man’s Sky captured the hearts of gamers yet again with a single trailer. The game revolves around an infinite, procedurally generated universe filled with planets. Whenever someone first start up the game, they are placed on a brand new planet, all their own. From there they travel throughout the the universe discovering new planets, species and even other players. The space exploration looks like a simple point the ship and go experience, with some space vista’s rivaling the beauty found planetside. There is minimal combat, but somehow even that looks relaxed and fundamentally rewarding. The game also has timed console exclusivity on PS4, meaning that Playstation will be the only place to play for a while after launch. No Man’s Sky is doing something special, and you can see it for yourself below.

After it’s announcement a couple of weeks ago, Mortal Kombat X got it’s first gameplay trailer during Sony’s E3 conference. The trailer shows new environmental attacks, like grabbing a branch and swinging on a limb. It’s reminiscent of NetherRealms last game Injustice: Gods Among Us, where different characters interacted differently with Kombat pieces of the environment. The trailer also details X-ray moves too, in all their bone crunching brutality. The graphics aren’t anything compared to the CG trailer from a couple of weeks ago, but the game looks better than any comparable fighting games on the market. Check out the trailer below and share your thoughts in the comments.
We are all looking forward to Rocksteady’s newest entry into the Arkham franchise, and we just got a look into the gameplay of Arkham Knight thanks to Sony. During the Playstation Press Conference a new trailer walked through how traversal through the air and on the ground will work in it. The flight by cape looked exactly like it did in past Arkham games, with diving building Batman’s momentum allowing him to swoop back upward. The Batmobile took the biggest spotlight in the trailer, meeting Batman in the streets and transforming into a floating tank at one point. Over all the gameplay looked smooth and cinematic, capturing what’s best about the franchise.
After this mornings tense teaser during Ubisoft press conference, Far Cry 4 got a more hands on approach during Sony’s. The gameplay saw our still unnamed protagonist climb a mountain, take out some troops (both stealthily and and not so stealthily). Then he wingsuited away, and was joined by a second player. Throughout the gameplay we saw the hunting, shooting, sneaking and traversal of Far Cry 3, but bigger quicker and with a friends. At the end of the trailer, Playstation revealed that if you buy the game on their console, then you can invite a friend who DOESN’T own the game and they can play with you. Check out the trailer below, and check back soon for more analysis later.
The Order: 1886 is Sony’s premier third person shooter this gen, so it’s no surprise that they would get rolling with some new gameplay.
For the first time we get a good look at the monsters, and how they move and interact with the player as well. We get a better look at the UI than ever before, along with a look at what type of game there will be beyond shooting.
Check out the Order: 1886 game trailer below and let us know what you think about the upcoming game!
Sony kicked off it’s Playstation E3 press conference with Destiny – and for all the right reasons.
Activision’s gigantic new FPS franchise started off with a trailer that blended both cinematic and gameplay footage, and showed in more detail a lot of the mechanics they have already talked about. It showed the vastness of the game and shared a bit about it’s combat. It was then announced that the Games Beta would come to Playstation games starting July 17th. There will be exclusive in-game missions, and a PS4 + Destiny Bundle as well.
Check out the Destiny traler below to see some gameplay from the upcoming game:
Ubisoft closed their press conference this year with a re-branded Rainbow Six. Rainbow Six: Siege so far features two teams of five going against each other in a fight over a hostage. After two years since any word from Rainbow Six: Patriots, the new game direction comes as a surprise.
The way players talk during the trailer makes it seem like the game may only feature one map, and with five player teams it immediately draws MOBA comparisons. But the game also borrows from other genre’s, allowing players to board up windows and doors, shoot through cover and plan out entry and exit tactics. The brief match showed what a tactically minded team could accomplish, and kept the series signature difficulty and zero room for errors.
Watch the trailer below, and come back soon for our analysis.

Every year’s Assassin’s Creed game gets a fantastic Cg trailer, and Unity is no exception. This year’s trailer features the four assassins we saw earlier today at Microsoft’s presser, again helping the revolutionaries get an aristocrat. They also announced that the game’s base progression will be different. A mission was demonstrated where a target was given, and instead of being locked into that objective the player walked away, preferring to take the target at a different time. Wile he strolled the streets the assassin picked up side quests, explored buildings and searched for more info on the target.
The gameplay showed some new traversal mechanics, like jumping from the series high vantage points to poles on a building and swinging off of them. After finally tracking down his target, the assassin took time in determining his approach, maneuvering around and above his location to see which best suited his intended strike.

Wile he strolled the streets the assassin picked up side quests, explored buildings and searched for more info on the target.After striking down his target and facing a wall of guards, the player is backed up yet again by his three friends. The demo ends, and it feels to me like Assassin’s Creed is trying to return to it’s roots. Be the judge yourself, and check the gameplay and trailer below.
After The Division’s gameplay trailer earlier today at the Microsoft media briefing, the game reappeared at Ubisoft’s briefing. This trailer focused more on the story side of things. It began with a time lapsed video sweeping through New York and went on to detail the games character. Beforehand, developers detailed that the player is a member of ‘The Division’, a group of sleeper agents who were activated to track down the global pandemic’s origin.
You play right after they are activated, approximately three weeks after the outbreak. As expected the world looks gorgeous and tragic as the disease has taken it’s toll on the city. The newly revealed story sounds like an interesting hook and I’m excited to hear more. Check it out below to see it for yourself:
