Every year, ravenous gamers salivate like hungry raptors at what new games the approaching year will bring them. So a-hunting they go inside the mammoth Los Angeles Convention Center to attend the E3 Expo, the interactive industry super show, where new game titles are thrown out on display to the marauding masses like slabs of meat to caged lions. Though hardware is typically a big ticket item that garners plenty of attention at the the E3 Expo, there's even more buzz and bustling about what new game titles are going to be released. 2014 is no exception -- and the appetite for new game titles is proving to be huge.
Evolve, Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, Star Wars: Battlefront, and Destiny are but a few of the upper echelon games that will be showcased and offered up at the battle buffet during the E3 Expo. Of course, it's not all about shoot 'em up games. Adventure games are also on the rise in popularity, hallmarked by titles like Batman: Arkham Knight and Assassin's Creed: Utility. So get in line at the strafing smorgasbord and feast on the frenzy of fists, feet, and fables. One thing is for certain: you can spot a franchise -- established or in the works -- a mile away when the intellectual property's title is followed by a colon. Dragon Age: Inquisition. Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor. See?
One aspect that makes E3 Expo so exciting is that rumors run rampant -- and the internet forums and game sites are bursting with buzz about what might be coming out. There are always those in the know and those who have the pretense of being in the know. The bottom line is that no one knows, publicly, until the show opens on June 10th through the 12th at the Los Angeles Convention Center. Rumor has it, which means there's no cited source behind this tidbit, that Dishonored may appear all sequelized and stealthy. Capcom, long regarded as a tough company to read on future releases, may have a Resident Evil 7 up its ripped, zombified sleeve. Final Fantasy 15? Yeah, 15. You can count on that.
One recent rumor that was confirmed was the release of Electronic Arts' Battlefield: Hardline. The rumor went confirmer because of a outdated trailer that got leaked on the internet. Damage control! EA wanted to make sure fans knew that more than half of year of additional development went into the title since that obsolete trailer went viral. In other words, don't go to E3 Expo expecting any advanced news or rumors to be totally accurate. That's what the show is all about. Go because you're hungry to be fed more stunning games. Go because you'll see for yourself what the future holds!
