E3 or The Electronic Entertainment Expo, no doubt, is the biggest and most popular trade event in the video game industry. Gamers all around the globe look forward to all the developers and publishers to showcase their new games to the public.
This 2018, E3 will be held from June 12 to June 14 at the Los Angeles Convention Center. And if you happen to be one of the hundreds that will be attending the said event, then you might check out four of these games that already confirmed to be featured in the exhibition.
Anthem is an upcoming action MMORPG from Bioware and EA. In this game, the player takes on the role of a Freelancer, a member of a group that leaves their civilization to explore their surrounding environment. Each Freelancer dons a fully-customized exo-suit called Javelins, allowing him to have superhuman abilities or to equip various weapons. The game was already featured in last year’s Microsoft’s E3 Conference, where the developers introduced the two classes of Javelins: the all-around and balanced Ranger, and the heavily armored Colossus.
The game will feature a single-player and co-op multiplayer elements set in a shared world where a squad can have four members. Squads are tasks to explore the world’s massive terrain while surviving its dangers such as savage beasts, marauders, and “Shaper Storms” which can cause world-altering occurrences.
Anthem is said to be released in the first quarter of 2019 for Microsoft Windows gaming PCs, XBox One, and PS4 gaming consoles.
Battlefield 5 was confirmed by EA shortly after the information was leaked by a prominent Battlefield player, Drakesden. Although not much is known yet, Battlefield 5 is said to take place in World War 2. If this is true, then this is the first time Battlefield will venture into World War 2 since 2009’s Battlefield 1943.

Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 was announced early this March by Massive Entertainment and Ubisoft. Although no further details were revealed about the game, IGN reported that the game will run on an updated version of the Snowdrop game engine, which was created by Ubisoft themselves.
