Mirror’s Edge 2 just got a whole lot more interesting! While before we were grasping at straws for any understanding of what the game was, we now know a lot more as to where it is headed.
The new developer-focused trailer showed off how Mirror’s Edge 2 is being made. From adding a suite of real parkour moves to the past games move set, the new entry should feel just like the last except with even smoother movement. The trailer shows off how combat will now be a puzzle, with pathways to knock everyone out quickly and efficiently. The games signature white, black and red aesthetic returns as well, along with the first games themes and message.
The game still looks a far way off, but exciting none the less. Check out the trailer yourself below:

While all this is going on, the team wants the experience to be online as well. And if you know anything about Criterion games, then you know they have a legacy of excellent crash models.

EA kicked off it’s press conference with footage of Dragon Age: Inquisition. The sizzler reel featured some stunning vistas and a lot of pretty character models walking around, but nothing in the terms of true gameplay. They then discussed how the new entry will bring see the return of a deep party system, customizeable characters and a semi-open world. Next the team showed off some actual gameplay, which revealed that the tactical mode, in which players can freeze time and plan team movements is coming back.
Next the team revealed a new entry into the Mass Effect series as well as a brand new IP. The new Intellectual property looked to be set within a post-apocalyptic world based on one piece of conceptual work. The Mass Effect entry appears to be a less story driven experience, instead focusing on discovery and exploration. They assured that characters would still play an important role in the game. The conceptual images will soon be added to the piece so you can judge for yourself.
During the Xbox conference a Rise of the Tomb Raider reveal trailer was shown. The mostly CG trailer lasted only a couple of minutes, and no additional details were given.
Based on how well the last entry sold it isn’t surprising to see Laura Croft in a new game. The trailer talked about Laura’s mental state, and seemed to be more urban inspired than jungle, and may be a cool new direction for the franchise to go in.

The Division got it’s first gameplay trailer since last E3 during Microsoft’s press conference. As a reminder, the games story revolves around a world in which a massive disease is released on Black Friday, and populations around the world are crippled. The ensuring mayhem is what The Division revolves around, using the rough atmosphere to it’s advantage. The game still centers around cooperative play between bands of survivors, and how they can interact with other groups.
The trailer looks amazing, and hopefully that same look can be transferred to the actual game. The Division continues Ubisoft’s foray into building new and different multiplayer experiences, and it gets me excited for how the game turns out.
Unfortunately, the game is still a year away at best, so for now we just get trailer. Check out the gameplay yourself below, and check back soon for more details after Ubisoft’s press conference.
Lionhead Studios detailed the story, setting and gameplay for it’s upcoming Fable’s Legends. A quick opening cinematic showed an opening village and some NPC characters. The trailer then went into some gameplay, which looks like really quick, really action oriented Fable. The online co-op gameplay saw characters blending their skills to take down opponents.
But that’s not the only type of gameplay available, as players can choose to be the villain and design levels for hero’s to try their hand at. The strange ‘dungeon master’ element sounds like a new type of game that hasn’t really been tried before. The other elements that define Fable, character interaction and signature RPG trademarks, haven’t made an appearance yet.
The game is set for 2015, with a beta beginning this summer. Check out the video below to find out more about it:

The game also got a new online mode- dubbed Chaos Mode -allows up to 8 players to take on the city together. All of this was wrapped in one of the best E3 presentations I can remember. The trailer was funny, playing on first person shooter tropes and breaking the fourth wall just a bit. The game’s color palet continue to impress me, and when paired with the mature cartoon themes and in game jokes I can’t help but wonder if this will be my game of the show. It makes me wonder if the zany visuals and crazy weapons are going to be the perfect combo for a killer app, as it appeals to a gigantic crowd.
