All anal aside, E3, or the Electronic Entertainment Expo kicked off this week. One day into the expo and it’s safe to say we’re pretty excited about what’s to come in the world of video games.
Electronic Arts E3 2016
Electronic Arts showed game play for Battlefield 1, which is set in World War 1. Will today’s FPS gamers take to the slower pace of the weaponry from that era? The jury is still out on that, but it’s an interesting change of pace in contrast to the slew of bland futuristic military shooters of today.
Bethesda: Skyrim re-mastered, Fallout 4, and VR
Bethesda announced that Skyrim will be remastered for ps4 and Xbox One with support for the modding community. Fallout 4 will also be getting some new downloadable content, including a post apocalyptic amusement part. Furthering the Fallout world also is future support for Virtual Reality. Is virtual reality a technology that will eventually be in all gamers’ homes? Is it a passing fad? Probably neither, as it could have more practical applications in an arcade environment.
Friday the 13th the game!
Stealing the show for Andrew is the gameplay footage for the upcoming FRIDAY THE 13th the game. The concept is simple, one online player plays infamous on-screen killer, Jason Voorhees, while the other online players take on caricatures of 80’s stereotypical teen camp counselors. Jason hunts the teens, the teens try to survive the night. With the camp atmosphere, the music from the original movie composer, and Jason’s mom talking to him throughout his hunt in the woods, this one is sure to be a hit for slasher film fans!
