The 28 most anticipated games of E3 2014

Tuesday, 3 June 2014 14:05 GMT By Dave Cook

E3 2014 kicks off next week and it promises to be a bumper year of reveals and fresh information on the hottest new games. Dave Cook runs down our list of the top 28 most-anticipated games at the show.

We’ve converged in the VG247 orbital news strike platform and discussed the games we’re most looking forward to at E3 2014. As we ranked each game using our hype-omiter there were tears, there were laughs, and someone even cried. Now here, for your reading pleasure, are our top 28 most-anticipated games of the show.

SunsetOverdrive_online_roman_candle

28. Sunset Overdrive

Last seen in: Sunset Overdrive’s guns look insane in this new trailer

It’s a new Xbox One exclusive and a fresh IP. In a world filled with sequels that’s surely a good thing, right? Insomniac’s first new-gen title has made this list because it’s not smothered by drab colours and stereotypical plot nonsense about rogue nations, terrorist plots or other familiar guff. It looks insane, funny, colourful, slick and more than a little bit like Jet Set Radio. We’re not seeing a downside yet.

fable_legends_sterling_1

27. Fable: Legends

Last seen in: Fable Legends: Xbox One shots show new enemy type, lush environments

Fable games may have taken a dip in recent years, but we’re liking the concept of having four human-controlled heroes working through a quest while another human controlled villain tries to make their life a living hell. Jokes about the cloud aside, this is a new form of co-op and PvP set within a universe that still manages to charm us with its British wit and morally-skewed backbone. We can’t wait to kick those new-gen chickens.

homefront_the_revolution_6

26. Homefront: The Revolution

Last seen in: Homefront: The Revolution is open-world, out 2015 – trailer

We first heard this one was coming about two years ago, but it’s official; the next Homefront is going open-world thanks to Crytek UK, and it’s coming to PS4, PC, Xbox One, Mac and Linux in 2015. It’s set four years after North Korea assumed control of the US with its superior technology, and it’s up to your band of rebels to take it back. We weren’t too keen on the first game, but it’s the open-world setting that appeals to us most. It could work.

Mortal_kombat_x

25. Mortal Kombat X

Last seen in: Mortal Kombat X officially confirmed for 2015, trailer inside

The ninth Mortal Kombat game was a solid reboot that took the series’ special blend of bone crunching, head decapitating madness to a new generation. It had a great combo system, tons of chunky characters, audacious Fatalities and a neat story mode. We’re expecting more of the same with some new tricks, but with the added bonus of being on new-gen machines as well. This can only be a good thing, surely?

resident_evil_6

24. Resident Evil 7

Last seen in: Capcom doesn’t want to repeat series mistakes, but what else can it do?

It seems that Resident Evil 7 rumours appear every E3 season, but we’re hopeful that Capcom will drop something in LA next week. What will the new game look like? Well, if the company has a lick of sense it’ll ditch the over-emphasis on gunplay and truly, honestly take the series back to its roots like it’s been promising for some time now. Chuck in some Barry Burton for good measure please Capcom. Ta!

battlecry_bethesda_game_2

23. Battlecry

Last seen in: Battlecry is Bethesda’s take on Team Fortress – trailer

This one took us by surprise recently, as it wasn’t leaked ahead of time and because it’s another new IP. Interestingly, Battlecry was designed by Half-Life 2 and Dishonored’s Viktor Antonov, so that plants it firmly on our radar straight off the bat. It’s a multiplayer combat game set in an interesting post-apocalyptic steampunk world with chunky character and even chunkier facial hair. Plus, watch that trailer, seriously.

evolve_goliath

22. Evolve

Last seen in: Watch the hunters in Evolve try to bring down a Goliath and Mega Mouths

Turtle Rock’s spiritual successor to Left 4 Dead is feeling better each time we play or see it, and it’s not hard to see why. The 4v1 multiplayer format demands strict teamwork in order to take the alien player down effectively, and there’s an incredible amount of class diversity and skills to play with. We’re big Left 4 Dead fans here at VG247, and in the absence of a third game out of Valve we’re glad someone’s keeping this blend for co-op alive and well.

dragon_age_inquisition

21. Dragon Age: Inquisition

Last seen in: Dragon Age: Inquisition screenshots show off Emprise Du Lion

This is sounding mighty interesting. It might not be open-world as first rumoured, but BioWare is making Dragon Age bigger in this third instalment, with only you and your all-star Inquisition team standing between the Breach and the salvation of Thedas. It sounds like it’ll go back to the roots of Origins, with plenty of moral consequence and tough decisions to be made as you assemble the team, and let’s not forget that it’s looking rather shiny on PC and the new-gens.

    On Resident Evil 7: every E3 season makes it sound like the franchise has gone more years without an entry. :P I want to see RE7 announced, starring Jill and/or Claire with few to none of the characters from RE6 in it (Chris and Leon especially shouldn’t be anywhere in sight since they’ve been stars in nearly everything for the past 10 years), but it hasn’t reached a point where the silence is taking too long just yet. Also, the next game should really focus on a female character regardless of who it is. The people working on the franchise lately have such a bad case of male character obsession, and it’s to the point that I really don’t want to play the games anymore unless they star Jill or Claire. I skipped RE6, bought Revelations.

    Final Fantasy XV: It may be turning its back on gameplay, but it’s bringing back the things that actually make a Final Fantasy game count as a Final Fantasy game and not some random thing with the brand name and a few bastardized concepts slapped on it to sell copies. What I’ve seen so far, assuming Lightning isn’t in it anywhere, has a good chance of getting me to actually buy a Squeenix game, and that’s saying a hell of a lot.

    Tomb Raider 2: Bleh. I know it’s going to happen, and I’ll have to just roll my eyes and watch this crap continue until 20 years from now when the next generation deems THIS version to be a pile of crap just like this generation has decided the original and proper Tomb Raider and Lara Croft were somehow intrinsically bad in every fathomable way. That doesn’t mean I have to like it or wish it well in any way whatsoever.

    Legend of Zelda: I haven’t played the latest console entry, but Zelda seems to be full of solid entries. While I’m writing this, I notice Metroid is conspicuously absent. Is this because we haven’t heard anything at all about a potential new game, or is it because of how horrendous Other M was, and how badly the next Smash Bros game seems to be treating Samus by design, that a Metroid game isn’t anticipated at all? I would assume it’s because we haven’t heard anything, but the Borderlands entry leads me to believe that isn’t enough on its own.

    Metal Gear Solid 5: I’m not sure if it’ll close the loop on the franchise. I think we’d need to see Big Boss interact with Frank Jaeger and Naomi Hunter, at the very least, before it really feels that way. It’s very, very possible we’ll get both in Phantom Pain, because I don’t expect Kojima to give away surprises like that for fans, but we’ll have to see. My personal suspicion is that we might not see the loop truly close until we reach a retelling of the Metal Gear games from Big Boss’ perspective.

  43. OlderGamer

    Kind of depressing, I wouldn’t play most of these games if they were free.

    Everyone it seems would have their own list anyways. I have a list. Just different.

    My number one game on my list is Diablo III: Reaper of Souls PS4 edition.

    Why? Because it is one of the few games that I know I can easily put upwards of 500hours into playing. Toss in couch co-op(the wife loves Action RPGS), the great controls(D3 was fantastic on PS360), and that has me and most of my close gamer friends planning to buy copies. But I don’t need E3 to sell me on the game, I know I want it.

    What I am actually anticipating from E3 are game reveals that I don’t know about yet. It would be nice if the “conference” was less about pumping big name franchises and yearly releases and more about actual game discovery. Less marketing. And it isn’t because I don’t like some of the established franchises, it is just that I get tired of being seemingly smothered by them. The hype/marketing is a monster that turns me(and many of my friends off about gaming today). Anyone recall going to a store and discovering a game you didn’t know was coming and enjoying it. It was Xmass morning as a little kid. I did that with Guardian Heroes and so much more. Now it is pump them preorders. And sell that DLC. Very corperate.

    Sigh, yeah I know. Cynical and old. That is me.

    We’ve got “all of the Milky Way to explore” in Destiny? I take it you guys don’t realise it’s our galaxy that’s called the Milky Way, not the solar system. If you count the orbit of Neptune as the edge of the solar system (I wouldn’t), the Milky Way is almost 2 million times larger.
