It looks like Dead Rising 4 is set for an official E3 reveal next week, as ThisGenGaming shared a number of screenshots from the purported sequel.
If you hadn’t figured it out yet, the rumours suggest it’s a remake that’ll feature up to four-player co-op. Some are also claiming that the game will be much larger this time around, featuring not only the shopping mall, but the surrounding areas too.
Kotaku's Jason Schreier also had a zombie-themed prediction to make:
We don't know how much, if any, of this is true, but we'll presumably find out during Microsoft's E3 presentation at 17:30 BST on Monday.
According to industry insider, Shinobi602, Bethesda will re-announce the previously cancelled Prey 2 during their conference. He claims that the title won't actually be named Prey 2, that it has been completely reworked, and that it will be similar to System Shock.
Whilst speaking on the MrMattyPlays podcast, Shinobi also stated; “I would expect a remaster of something." The rumour mill is suggesting that this could be The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, which seems the likely option, considering some of the work was already done when staff worked on porting it as initial practice developing for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
Also reported to be shown at the briefing are sequels to Wolfenstein and The Evil Within.
Guerrilla Games’ PS4 exclusive RPG, Horizon Zero Dawn, has been pushed back to March 2017.
It’s not all bad news, as the title does have a new trailer and the Collector's Edition contents have been revealed.
The Collector's Edition will net you:
BATMAN - A Telltale Series and Season 3 of The Walking Dead will both launch this year. According to a tweet by Telltale's Job Stauffer, BATMAN will release in the summer, whilst TWD will arrive in Autumn.
A cheeky hint seems to suggest that BATMAN could release very soon.
Yooka-Laylee, the open world platformer that saw Kickstarter success, has received a new gameplay trailer and release date.
Playtonic Games have decided to hold it back until the first quarter of 2017, stating; "While we felt confident we could ship the game in October as originally projected in our Kickstarter, the Playtonic team has decided that it would prefer to add a few extra months’ polish to the game schedule."
Here’s that trailer:
More Yooka-Laylee screenshots and videos have been promised between now and the end of E3, so keep your eyes peeled if you’re interested in seeing more.
Previously a PC exclusive, it’s been revealed that XCOM 2 will be coming to Xbox One and PS4 in September via the below trailer.
The original will be free to Xbox Live Gold members later this month. Enemy Unknown and its expansion did surprisingly well, considering challenging strategy games aren’t exactly prime console fodder, so Firaxis will undoubtedly hope to rekindle that success.
The world premiere of Watch_Dogs 2 has been teased by Ubisoft, as you’ll have undoubtedly seen if you’ve visited the likes of Twitch recently. There are no further details as of yet, but the reveal is planned for 17:00 BST tomorrow, so we'll keep you informed.
A new Xbox One update is currently rolling out to members of the preview program, which includes an improved Game Collection interface, the ability to personalise what you see on your activity feed, easier ways to share game clips and images, and the introduction of Cortana - Microsoft's Siri-like assistant.
