Another big standout this E3 is the next title by Quanitic Dream, famous for their last game, Heavy Rain (and looking even further back, Fahrenheit), comes their next title, Beyond: Two Souls. If you watch the premier trailer, shown after the jump, you can tell we’re in for another psychological thriller. Apparently, you will have much more control with your character this time around (including what looks like a lot more action), while also providing Move support at launch (while Heavy Rain got that support later in a patch).
According to Eurogamer, the game takes place over a 15 year span of the main character, Jodi Holmes (portrayed by Ellen Page), and her connection with the afterlife. If Heavy Rain is anything to go by, we’re in for a treat. Nothing like games that really make you think and build emotional connections with characters. Besides the trailer, we also have a collection of screenshots for your viewing pleasure as well. Enjoy!
The “so crazy, it might just work” idea of a Persona 4 fighting game is closer to being a reality, so Atlus decided it was time to present to us an E3 2012 trailer:
Naughty Dog was on deck to demo The Last of Us, which feels like a grown-up version of Uncharted. Not that Uncharted isn’t grown up, but The Last of Us can be downright vicious. The realistic fight scene stretched over several rooms, starting with the main characters trying to stealth, but then being forced into battle.
Video and more info after the break!

Assassin’s Creed III is making a presence at E3 (obviously), and this time, we have a relatively lengthy gameplay trailer, showing some of the combat, environment navigation and, at the start of it, Connor’s hunting skills (in an effort to score some meat for a nearby town’s store). If you’ve been wanting to see how the game looks, check out the trailer after the jump. If not, you can also see the CGI trailer here.
One of the few things that has stuck out so far this E3 was a new title in development under Ubisoft. The game is called “Watch Dogs,” and it honestly looks pretty interesting. I still don’t understand what the plot it, besides that everything is run by a Central Operating System (traffic lights, cell phones, etc.) and you seem to be able to control members of a group that can hack into the system and control aspects of it. Check out the gameplay trailer after the jump for some fresh gameplay footage!
Right after I posted this, Ubisoft released a press release that gives some more details. Here’s an excerpt from said release:
“In Watch Dogs, players enter the dangerous world of Aiden Pearce, a new class of antihero whose ability to hack into any connected system could be his most powerful weapon. Whether it’s triggering a 30-car pileup by manipulating traffic-lights to trap an enemy during a downtown shootout or tapping into the city’s omnipresent security cameras to access anyone’s personal information, Pearce is capable of coercing and controlling almost every element of the world around him.”
Watch Dogs goes beyond the limits of today’s open-world games by giving players the ability to control an entire city,” said Jonathan Morin, creative director, Ubisoft. “In Watch Dogs, anything connected to the city’s Central Operating System becomes a weapon. By pushing the boundaries, we can provide players with action and access to information on a scale that’s never been seen in a video game before.
