I thought this thread already existed, but I guess not.
What games are you most looking forward to? Are there any titles on the way that you're grabbing on release day? Any hints of something possibly showing at E3? Grabbed an early access game that's really going places?
This is the place to talk about it.
Stuff that's definitely coming
Pillars of Eternity 2: Deadfire
This Obsidian Entertainment title drops in just under three weeks. I didn't back the campaign, but I've been watching the developer updates on their channel. Pillars of Eternity is one of those games that I adore, but really need to be in the mood to play. Having said that, I am definitely grabbing this at some point.
Monster Hunter World (PC)
This has no official release date yet, but I imagine it's going to be a lot of fun. My getting it depends on the number of friends who are also interested.
Speculation and Rumours
Bethesda Softworks is holding their own press conference at E3 again this year. Last year's show was a bit of a flop, only running for a total of 40 minutes. A lot of their fans, myself included, believe that they were building up to a big reveal that was cancelled at the last minute. Pete Hines looked really uncomfortable on stage compared to his presentation prior to Fallout 4's reveal. Personally, I hope it's Starfield, a title trademarked by Zenimax way back in 2013 and potentially one of the two new IPs they have mentioned. This could mean that the game has been in pre-production since Skyrim release in 2011 and when into full production in 2015/16 following Fallout 4's release.
Also, Pete Hines has stated that the run up to E3 is their "Hell on Earth" time of the year. If that's not a hint of a DOOM(2016) sequel reveal then I'm a fairy princess. (I shall change my TWHL sub-title to "Fairy Princess" for the rest of the year if I'm wrong about this.)
Then back to Obsidian Entertainment again. They are also working on something publicly known only as Project:Indiana. It's being lead by Tim Cain and Leonard Boyarsky, two of the guys being the original Fallout games and New Vegas, my favourite game of all time. Pretty excited to see what they are working on with a much larger budget than the Pillars of Eternity games. I'm hoping on an open world, first person RPG, but there is literally no information about this at all, other than the potential name, The Outer Worlds, a 2018 trademark revealed by yours truly
