What you're playing next: The best of E3's opening day

Engadget Engadget 14/06/2016 Sean Buckley

The biggest show in video games starts off the same every year: with a seemingly endless torrent of announcements, teasers and surprises a full day before the show floor even opens. It's nerve wracking, but wonderful; Never change, E3. On Day zero, EA, Bethesda, Ubisoft, Microsoft and Sony showed us the bulk of what's in store for the next year in gaming: virtual reality, epic sequels and, of course, new hardware. Don't worry if it sounds overwhelming though, our very own Jess Conditt and Tim Seppala are here to tell you everything that's happening at E3.

Suffice to say, you'll have plenty to play over the next year. EA kicked off the pre-show announcements with deeper looks at TitanFall 2, Battlefield 1 and teasers for Mass Effect: Andromeda and a whole mess of upcoming Star Wars games. Meanwhile, Bethesda boldly announced plans to create virtual reality experiences for both Doom and Fallout 4, a remaster of Skyrim for modern consoles and Quake Champions, a competitive, PC-exclusive eSports reimagining of the beloved franchise.

Looking for hardware? Microsoft has you covered with the Xbox One S, a slimmer redesign of the flagship console with more storage and a revamped gamepad. The company announced plenty of new games too, including Halo Wars 2, Gears of War 4, ReCore, Sea of Thieves and more.

Despite warning fans that it wasn't bringing any new hardware to the show, Sony went ahead and blew us out of the water anyway. With a new God of War game on the horizon, as well as an exclusive Spider-Man game from Insomniac, a firm release date for The Last Guardian, a new property from Hideo Kojima and a slew of intriguing PlayStation VR titles that include the likes of Resident Evil VII, Batman Arkham VR and Star Wars, PlayStation fans have a lot to look forward to.
