E3 2017: Everything from this year

Matt Sayer 14 June 2017 NEWS

E3-2017

The first public E3 has already begun. Here's everything from this year's event in one place.

With E3 2017's press conferences done and dusted, we can finally take a step back and look at all the games and announcements from the world's biggest video game convention. This year was no slouch when it came to big news, with Microsoft unveiling its fancy new Xbox One X, Ubisoft giving us a tantalising tease of Beyond Good and Evil 2, and Nintendo finally announcing a new Metroid game for the Switch.

If you didn't catch every moment of every conference, or if you just want to relive all the exciting announcements, we've got you covered. Here's all the big news from E3 2017:

EA Play

EA kicked off E3 2017 with its EA Play event, holding it a day earlier than the rest of the show so as to get the drop on new announcements. These were in no short supply, with the reveal of a single-player story mode for Madden NFL 18, the first look at the intriguing co-op only prison break game A Way Out, and a generous heaping of multiplayer gameplay from Star Wars Battlefront II. Even better, we learned that the new maps, modes, and characters coming to Battlefront II will be completely free for all Battlefront II players, which is a nice change from the expensive DLC plans many multiplayer games go with.

Microsoft

Goodbye Project Scorpio; hello Xbox One X. Microsoft's new super-powered console dominated its E3 presentation, with plenty of emphasis placed on how it will make games look and run better than ever before. Showing off all this extra power were games like Forza Motorsport 7, Metro Exodus, and Crackdown 3, and there was even the surprise announcement that the tremendously popular Player Unknown's Battlegrounds will be coming exclusively to all Xbox One consoles.

Bethesda

An amusement park dubbed Bethesdaland set the stage for all Bethesda's E3 announcements, with news tied to nearly every franchise within the studio's catalogue. Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus gave us a glimpse at an even grimmer alternate future than the first game; DOOM and Fallout 4 ventured into virtual reality; and Dishonored 2 promised even more stabby-stab action with its first DLC expansion. Paid mods are making a comeback, too, in the form of Bethesda's Creation Club for Skyrim and Fallout 4.

Ubisoft

Honestly, we didn't expect Ubisoft's conference to be anywhere near as impressive as it was. While Assassin's Creed: Origins might not have sold us on its promise of an entirely new Assassin's Creed experience just yet, between the addition of boats and planes to The Crew 2, the surprisingly deep combat of Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle, and the stunning trailer for Beyond Good and Evil 2, Ubisoft served up what was easily one of the best conferences of the entire show.

Sony

Rather than try to tiptoe around the Xbox-One-X-shaped elephant in the room, Sony decided to let its games do all the talking during its press conference. 20 games were shown off without so much as a pause between them, jumping from the explosive action of Uncharted: The Lost Legacy to the Android revolution of Detroit: Become Human to the web-slinging antics of Spider-Man. Unfortunately, a good chunk of the games were ones we'd seen before, with only a handful of new PSVR titles to surprise us.

Nintendo

If there was one presentation that left us reeling, it was Nintendo's. Metroid Prime 4, a fully-fledged Pokemon game for Switch, Mario possessing Goombas, Bullet Bills, and New Donk City taxis in Super Mario Odyssey--there's little doubt Nintendo delivered the goods this year. We're even getting a proper 2D Metroid for the first time in over 10 years! Good stuff, Nintendo.

PC Gaming Show

Sneaking in between the main conferences, the PC Gaming Show wasn't quite as chock-full of news as the other presentations, but there were still a few announcements worth catching up on. XCOM 2's new DLC looks to expand the tactical RPG with an appropriately intimidating alien threat, the addition of climbing and vaulting to Player Unknown's Battlegrounds will undoubtedly excite the game's millions-strong player base, and the reveal of an Age of Empires remaster certainly tickled our nostalgia bones.
