What you should expect from E3 2015

Next week is the gaming industry’s premier showcase E3 – six experts pick the game they’re most excited about seeing

Post-apocalyptic RPG Fallout 4

Jonathan Pile; ShortList executive editor, film and gaming

"Fallout 3 was a special game. It was a triumph of retro-futuristic atmosphere and innovative combat set in a huge and hostile wasteland where the cockroaches are the size of cats. The time taken over this new one, plus the power boost of the new consoles, fills me with chest-beating confidence."


New Destiny expansion The Taken King

Taken King

Martin Robinson; Eurogamer reviews and features editor

"Destiny’s big makeover, due later this year, isn’t as shiny and new as other games out at E3, but as an add-on to the best time-sink this generation’s had to offer I can’t think of anything quite as enticing."


Epic adventure Uncharted 4

Julia Hardy; YouTuber (itsjuliahardy) and Vice writer

"I am a sucker for a good story, so I need to play the next instalment of this series. It’s got everything you need: action, adventure, romance, bromance, sexual innuendo, solving puzzles –brains are just as sexy as muscles – and someone making smart-arse quips all the time."


Space exploration sim No Man’s Sky

Lee Price, The Sun’s gaming editor

"A title that’s been intriguing me since last year’s expo. It’s a huge game with countless worlds to explore, and sometimes that’s what you want – the chance to just poke around and see you can discover, without having a map full of nagging icons telling you where to go."


Lost ‘classic’ The Last Guardian

Guardian

Keith Stuart, Video Game Editor, The Guardian

"I genuinely believe this will be the E3 where Sony finally updates us on The Last Guardian, the fabled third game from Team Ico. It's been in development on and off (mostly off) since 2007 and every year fans of PlayStation classics Ico and Shadow of Colossus chant "this will be the year of Last Guardian!" And it never is. But this year it WILL be. That's what I'm most excited about: the unlikely arrival of an obscure project that's been in development hell for almost a decade. Sorry."


Nintendo’s classic franchises

F-Zero

Mike Diver, Video Games Editor, Vice

"I'm after RESULTS from Nintendo, now that they're in the black and running theme parks or whatever. And I DEMAND a new F-Zero. It's really that simple."
