E3 2021 Game Highlights: What to expect

It’s around that time of the year again. Gamers are getting their hopes up for new releases, looking forward to the future of gaming. Here, you’ll see a few of the popular titles we’re all dying to play from E3 2021.

E3 2021 Games

Elden Ring

Welcome to a world consisting of The Lands Between, where you will become a Tarnished and traverse the planes all for the chance to expel the Demigods who banished the Tarnished.

The Elden Ring has been destroyed, and each Demigod has a shard.

Unfortunately, they have become twisted versions of themselves. They roam around their own domain, lying in wait for the Tarnished. It is your chance to reclaim your rightful place in The Lands Between.

Elden Ring

Elden Ring is an upcoming Souls-like game created by FromSoftware, the creator of the Souls genre. It is also one of the highest anticipated games in E3 2021.

Elden Ring was first announced in E3 2019. This means we’ve been agonizing about it for two years. Unfortunately, we’ve still got another half year before we’re able to play it.

Unlike other Souls games, the player will have numerous ways of traversing the world without having to hoof it.

According to the game’s director, Hidetaka Miyazaki, it’s good to get better ways of transportation as the world of Elden Ring is the biggest they’ve created already.

In Elden ring, combat is still similar to the Souls games. Unlike Souls games, though, skills won’t be attached to weapons. Instead, the players will be capable of mixing and matching the skills to better suit their play style.

This mechanic will definitely give you the freedom of customizing your own style of combat. Elden Ring is set to release on January 21, 2022.

Mario+Rabbids: Sparks of Hope

The evil entity, Cursa, travels throughout the galaxy, hunting for Sparks. These Sparks are the fusion of Lumas and Rabbids. Together, Mario and the Rabbids must team up and fight Cursa to save the Sparks.

The second game in a surprisingly successful crossover series, Mario+Rabbids: Sparks of Hope is an exciting release from E3 2021.

Mario Rabbids

In this game, you can create a team of three using the nine characters available.

Where combat is considered, the grid system is shut down. Instead, we have a new unique system that allows the characters you operate in combat to have a specific area in which they can move. This will allow you to decide the best actions in-game more efficiently.

The combat style is still turn-based, a generic standard for strategy games.

Also different from the last game, you’ll be fighting all over the universe. Journey through the many different worlds where you’ll encounter new and familiar foes.

There are also Sparks to be found throughout the universe. Sparks each have their own unique characteristics, personalities, and abilities. Mario+Rabbids is set to release sometime in 2022.

Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora

We come now to a beautiful planet, full of various plant and animal life. The setting of this game might be familiar to you. That’s right, a game based on the amazing film, Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora takes place on the very same planet with its own standalone story.

In this game, you’ll play as one of the Na’vi. The setting is based inside the Western Frontier. The Western Frontier is inhabited by many unique creatures and new characters. You will have to protect these from the RDA.

Avatar

Frontiers of Pandora is a first-person action-adventure set in the open world of the Western Frontier. Aside from the fact the game is being developed with the Snowdrop engine, not much else is known about it. Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora is set to release sometime in 2022.

Outer Worlds 2

You thought your journey through Outer Worlds was over. Well, think again, as you will now be able to enjoy the game, Outer Worlds 2.

The game is most likely an early announcement. As a result, we don’t know much about it. What we do know is that the trailer was humorous.

The announcer made fun of the fact that the game is still in development. In fact, it has no significant details on what the game will be about, what sets it apart from its original title, or what will be in the game itself.

Outer Worlds 2

Aside from the disappointment held from the trailer, players are excited about this game. The trailer didn’t release any information aside from the fact they have nothing but the title.

But it is still the promise of a new title in the series. Because of the lack of data, we don’t have a release date.

Redfall

The town of Redfall, Massachusetts is a nice island town. If you don’t believe me, give yourself a look. You’ve got nice stores, good entertainment… oh yeah, and the legion of vampires blocking out the sun and making the town remote.

But these aren’t your generic vampires. These vampires are man-made creations. Nevertheless, just like your generic vampire, they’re using humanity as slaves with the “promise” of becoming immortal.

Red Fall

Play as one of the heroes alone or in a squad with up to four players to extinguish the vampire threat surrounding this little town.

Created by the developers behind Prey and Dishonored, Redfall is definitely a game worth trying out.

Redfall is an open-world FPS where the survivors of Redfall attempt at freeing the town and reconnecting with the outside world. Redfall is set to release Summer of 2022.

Breath of the Wild 2

We have another rarity in the works. Breath of the Wild 2 will be a direct sequel, though we’re not entirely sure if it will be called Breath of the Wild 2 as the creators are apparently withholding the actual title.

We do know that it is a direct sequel, as we see the same version of Link and Zelda in the trailer from the last game.

Nothing else is known about the game other than there is a spiritual force capable of bringing back the dead. Breath of the Wild 2 is set to release sometime in 2022.

Diablo 2: Resurrected

Twenty years ago, we received a game within a series that even today still runs. Now, we get another shot at the game. Diablo 2 Resurrected is the reimagined version of the original.

With the Resurrected version, you’ll have the base game as well as the expansion. With the release of this game, you will also be able to buy the Diablo Prime Evil Collection.

Buying this pack will give you all of the features between Diablo 2 as well as Diablo 3.

Diablo 2 Resurrected

I am very excited to tell you that Diablo 2: Resurrected will be released on September 23rd of 2021.

Afterthought

All in all, there are some exciting new titles coming out. There may not be as much information on some of these titles. But, as with any good movie, we don’t get to see the best until it’s finally here.
