Despite the fact there was no PlayStation E3 2019 conference this year this does not mean that the Games E3 2019 line-up was a total bust. Microsoft has announced its next console, Xbox Project Scarlett, Ubisoft has seduced crowds with a variety of exciting titles, and Nintendo released a sequel to Zelda Breath of the Wild. And these are just some of the big announcements from E3 2019 as well. So, without further ado, here is GamesRadar's choice of the best games of E3 2019, including our vote for the show's game:
Game show: Watch Dogs Legion
Release date: March 20, 2020
Platforms: Xbox One, PS4, PC and Google Stadia
Legion watchdogs This is not just our game in the series because it tackles post-Brexit England head-on, but because it's one of the only games in E3 2019 to push the boundaries of gameplay. Located in a near future alternative version of London, where a major political shift has resulted in mass jobs, a heavy reliance on automation and a general malaise that has seized the city. Like other games in the series, you play as a member of Dedsec, but Legion differs in that you will create your own team of rebel agents, and so create a group of playable characters that you can switch at any time. Imagine GTA 5 but with 20 characters instead of three, and you will understand the essential. Watch Dogs Legion does something that few games really are, and it's innovative. It remains to be seen whether the full game will arrive in March 2020. But of all the games in E3 2019it's the game that made the biggest impression.

After Keanu Reeves appeared at the Xbox E3 2019 press conference you would have a hard time finding someone do not talk about Cyberpunk 2077 at E3 this year. The next science fiction RPG from Projekt Red CD finally had a release date, and after what we saw from the game presented in in-camera demonstration, the Polish developer has another leader. work by hand. And no, not just because he presents Reeves as a ghostly punk rocker. No, it's another beautifully designed world, where every choice you make counts. There are several endings, different backgrounds to choose from, a diverse range of character creation options and an extensive skill tree to work on to get the hero V version that best reflects your playing style. gameplay, the focus is as much on strength as on hacking, but it's really up to you to decide where you want to place your RPG points. Because of that, it may be the biggest game we've seen in years and you do not have much to wait for.
Dying Light 2
Release date: Spring 2020
Platforms: PC, PS4 and Xbox One
Zombieland tells us that the first rule to survive the apocalypse, Cardio, is crucial to defeating and surviving the undead, but how are we supposed to put this theory to the test in a boring, normal society? and without zombies? Dying Light 2 provides us with exactly the kind of virtual thought experience we need, presenting an open world built from scratch for freerunning above, below and sometimes straight ahead the undead enemies of his 15-year-old apocalypse. Our E3 2019 demo revealed that the new protagonist Aiden was crossing the rooftops of Techland's latest cityscape, known only as "The City", taking a rush of both player-centric and tactical-centric decisions focused on # 39; history. Bloody Pulp via the bloody fighting ballet of Dying Light 2. Despite the horror of its central premise, this unexpected sequel is poised to become one of the most tantalizing games to watch in 2020.
Release date: September 13, 2019
Platforms: PC, PS4, Xbox One and Google Stadia
Borderlands 3 turned out to be a good choice for the E3 2019, as described by the chaos in its last practical demonstration was well associated with the chaos of the congress. This demo gave us the opportunity to assume Mouthpiece, one of the many new bosses having been initiated to the Borderlands verse with the next sequel to the Gearbox Looter shooter, and perfectly summed up all the reasons for which we are delighted with our long awaited return to Pandora. The shooter seems tighter and more responsive than ever, the Celtic aesthetic appears both remarkably modernized and surprisingly familiar, and that inimitable humor of Borderlands has not lost any of its guilty charms. All that's left to do is sit back, wait and tune our Spotify playlists on an infinite loop of awful dubstep music until Borderlands 3 is finally available on September 13, later this year.
Jedi Star Wars: Fallen Order
Publication date: November 15, 2019
Platforms: Xbox One, PS4 and PC
AE's third-person adventure had felt oddly uninteresting for E3 2019, based on her confusing trailer and insipid protagonist, CGI, Cal Kestis. A brief demonstration of the game appeasing these fears, revealing a Star Wars cinematic action game that combines the best elements of Uncharted (continuous flow between scenario scenes and action in game), Dark Souls (deceptively intelligent parry and block system) ) and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of Nature (puzzle that slows down and dodge moves). A demonstration behind the closed door Invisible Jedi Star Wars: Fallen Order images, showed a kinematic sequence of epic AT-AT in the marshes of the planet Wookie, Kashyyyk. In a reassuring way, the game will alternate fighting between corridors and epic scale, with the ability to lead the AT-AT, which will delight fans, as well as the welcome images of Rogue One, including guerrilla leader Saw Gerrera and a K-2S0 look-alike. Practice, the news is even better. Our Jedi Star Wars: Overview of the Fallen Order Respawn congratulated developer Respawn for creating a "Star Wars game worthy of the name". Through its mix of ostentation and depth, Fallen Order finally promises to restore balance in strength.

Imagine the world of evolution of the Jurassic world, but replace all these dinos with critters from around the world and you will have a glimpse of what Planet Zoo will propose to its release in November. It's a zoo simulator in the soul, which focuses on the conservation, education and release of your well-adjusted animals in the wild. Building the zoo itself will be a work of love, with all the elements available to allow you to build from scratch, including the monkey gym. And of course, especially from the demonstration we saw at E3, the animals themselves are fantastic, each with its own personality, its own traits and its behavioral quirks that should make managing your zoo an absolute pleasure. If you like simulation games and wildlife in ways that make David Attenborough blush, you will need Planet Zoo in your life.
Pokémon sword and shield
Release date: November 15, 2019
Platforms: Nintendo Switch
Despite the fact that we were only able to participate in the Water Gym in our Pokemon Sword and Shield preview – the two to come Pokemon switch games – that did not prevent the fact that this pair of games will offer a significant update to the entries of the previous series. An open-world plain known as the "Wild Zone" where Pokemon roam visibly at the Pokémon let's go, a new setting, new Pokémon Gen 8 and up, contribute to the excitement of the Game Freak Switch title. Combine all this with the best graphics the show has ever seen, and an adorable trio of beginners (and an electric corgi) and it's just another great year for Nintendo.
Release date: 2020

Time loops are starting to become a staple in video games, from the 60-second Minit cycle to the half-hour Groundhog Day that players have recently practiced in The Outer Wilds. 12 minutesAs you may have already guessed, the time loop repeats over the same 12 minute hold period until players have found a way to escape, but the synopsis itself is much more well founded than most others. To make sure you do not spoil, say you play as one seemingly without exception on the verge of celebrating good news with his wife but, unless you do something about it, every loop of your return home will not end almost never good. Another promising title of ID @ Xbox, this time from the former Artistic Director of The Witness, Luis Antonio, 12 Minutes is cinematographic, cerebral and shameless for Kubrickian, making it easy to read. one of the most interesting games we played at E3 2019. Keep this one on your radar, and start practicing these time management skills in preparation.
Release date: November 22
Platforms: PS4, Xbox One, PC, Nintendo Switch
As we said in our preview of Eternal Doom on E3 2019, the upcoming sequel looks like the ultimate form of Doom. That's all we liked in Doom (2016) – very secret levels, fast fights and purely glorious gore – mixed with enemies and elements we loved in the original Doom games. In Eternal Doom, everything has been in gear, thanks in large part to the introduction of new intuitive combat options, such as the shotgun-mounted grabber and the flame-mounted flamethrower. shoulder. The movement is faster, the attacks kill faster, and judging by what we've seen so far, Doom Eternal will also lead us into almost angelic environments for a nice change of pace since the first time. hell descending on Earth. It's a smarter and more creative doom with fights that need to be mastered and levels that need to be explored. We can not wait to tear it up in November.
The outer worlds
Release date: October 25, 2019
Platforms: PC, PS4 and Xbox One
In our preview of The Outer Worlds at E3 2019, we had stated that the next Obsidian title easily resembled the best role-playing game that Bethesda had ever achieved, and we are getting on well. let us take this remark. The latest game from the creators of Fallout: New Vegas and Divinity: Original Sin is a fast, witty, classic-style anthem that is immediately appealing to old-fashioned RPGs, with distinctively modernized modifications in the right places. Smart where it's needed, funny when it counts, and strong where it counts The outer worlds In six months, he has gone from secrecy to super star status, suggesting that there is a real hunger for the type of odyssean experiment proposed by Obsidian. Let's hope that the game can fulfill all its promises and allow its famous independent studio to finish in style before starting to create full-fledged Xbox games for Microsoft full-time. Crossed fingers.
The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening
Publication date: September 20, 2019
Platforms: Nintendo Switch
Call it a remaster, call it a reimagining, but there's no way out of the fact that this reissue of The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening on the Nintendo Switch is downright adorable. If you remember the original, it's a delight that a new generation of players knows the magic and light follies that make up Link's adventures with the Wind Fish on Koholint Island. But this time, Nintendo has decorated this little world with graphics that make it look like it's just a toy store. Everything is so bright, with the top of the trees and buildings covered with a shine that gives them the impression that they are made of hard plastic, like some Fisher Price toys. It's a look that really suits the tone of the game and makes us start to dive in an incredibly excited way.
