E3 2019 Game Event: Noticeable focal points

Although Sony PlayStation is absent this year, the E3 2019 game event doesn’t lose its inherent appeal. This year, the event once again attracted the attention of many gamers around the world with news and trailers of upcoming titles from producers.

After 3 days of organization (14 – 16/6/2019) with a large number of participants, E3 – the world’s largest game event this year – was officially closed. For genuine gamers, this is an annual event that cannot be missed. This is also an opportunity for game publishers or accessory companies to introduce, display and promote important upcoming products. If you accidentally missed it, don’t worry too much. Let’s through the most prominent news published at the recent 2019 E3 game event right in the following article!

  1. Microsoft is “turning up” about the future of Xbox with Project Scarlett
    This is the first year of “grandfather” Sony refused to attend the event after many years earlier. In addition, with Nintendo Direct’s previous recording tradition, Microsoft naturally became the focus of all attention. Accordingly, the next-generation Xbox is closer to us than ever. At this event, Microsoft officially announced Project Scarlett – successor to the previous Xbox version. Basically, this device will support 8K gaming capabilities, frame rates up to 120fps, ray-tracing technology and backward compatibility for the last three Xbox lives. Project Scarlett is expected to be released with Halo Infinite in 2020.
  2. Online streaming services will become the next development focus
    In fact, the focus on developing streaming systems has been “flimsy” since the beginning of the year. With a series of “big guys” racing to optimize these technologies, a “Netflix for game” service probably won’t be far away. Based on the idea at the end of this year, single technologies such as Microsoft’s xCloud service, Bethesda’s cloud computing … will be released for the first time. This is a very promising promise for gamers worldwide.
  3. Part 2 of “Breath of The Wild” will be developed on the Switch system
    This is a huge surprise for the Zelda fan community. In the past, Nintendo rarely did the sequel to Zelda titles. Not only that, the Japanese giant also has a trailer to introduce the next plot of Breath of The Wild to “bomb” the audience. However, currently, the game still has no official name as well as a lot of information around. Players may have to wait until 2020 or 2021 to enjoy this game.
  4. “Animal Crossing: New Horizons” was removed until 2020
    Besides, Nintendo also brought some bad news at the E3 game event 2019. Animal Crossing: New Horizons – the first title of this series developed on the Switch system had to be delayed to March 20. / 2020. In return, this game publisher introduced the first trailer game for New Horizons. Similar to previous versions, this time you will also continue to play the role of “taking each other to escape” on the deserted island; start a new life. Familiar gameplay elements will remain and develop; for example, communicating with animals, building houses …
  5. Reveal the gameplay of Pokemon Sword & Shield
    One of the big surprises at the 2019 E3 game event is that Nintendo revealed the gameplay for the upcoming Pokemon Sword & Shield. Unlike Pokemon Direct earlier, Nintendo focused on introducing the Wild Area area and Dynamax feature. In addition, the game also updated information on some new Pokemon, Max Raid Battle, Gym Leader … The game is expected to be released on November 15 this year.

Extreme Games are inspired by real events that you don’t know

Sometimes it takes a lot of effort for publishers to come up with interesting, strange stories with horror, adventure or humor genres to put into their games. However, there are real life events that are equally thrilling as the stories in fantasy, sometimes even more attractive. And the truth is, there are so many stories that producers put into the game and they show us that the facts are even more bizarre than fiction. Let’s take a look at some of the games that have been transformed from real life stories:

Kholat
Real-life mysteries are far more frightening than fictional ones, especially when they haven’t found a solution in decades. Based on the notorious Dyatlov Pass, IMGN. PRO’s survival horror game Kholat records the journey of a main character (voiced by Sean Bean) as he walks on a journey with a group of people. Young mountain climbers of Russia and met mysterious ending on 2/1959

The Cat Lady
The Cat Lady carries a very specific storytelling melody. However, while such stories used to have a quiet, gloomy atmosphere, The Cat Lady had a hopeless melancholy.

The game was inspired by stories of depression that were told by creator Remigiusz Michalewski by family, friends and patients who were taken to Exeter Hospital where he worked as an assistant. The environment is full of gore and the game’s creepy art style, like the injuries he saw at his workplace. The Cat Lady is like a profound portrait of surreal nightmares, the minds of individuals with severe depression when they try to commit suicide.

LA Noire
Based on the story of the criminal world in Los Angeles in the 1940s, Rockstar made LA Noire.

Rocstar’s creators relied on some of the most horrifying murders in history, forcing players to test their investigation skills in a series of cases with a higher level of challenge. A notable example of Rockstar’s sophistication in bringing these cases to the game is the detail “The Quarter Moon Murder”, in which the main character, Cole Phelps, has committed a series of crimes like that of the men he ended Elizabeth Short’s life in 1943 in real life. If Short’s name sounds familiar, it’s because she is “Black Dahlia” in real life, a Hollywood celebrity in history is not because of her acting talent, but because of the tragic case. Be clarified attached to her nickname. Many people said that playing games felt more authentic than reading real life cases.

Everything You Need to Know About the New Video Game Movie – Call of Duty

For the Call of Duty to enter the cinematic universe with great success, a director was hired that specialises in modern warfare. The film inspired by the first-person shooter game that originally was available exclusively on Windows and due to popularity expanded to handhelds and consoles sold well over 250 million copies by 2016 sales topped above the $15 million mark.

Several games were released as part of the Call of Duty series starting with the first in 2003 after which more versions were released in 2005 through to and including 2018 so that fans could invest in the latest version titled Call of Duty: Black Ops 4.

Call of Duty – Fans Need to Be Patient For A Little Longer

The Call of Duty movie has been coming for quite some time now, and fans have been keeping an eye on the release date ever since, finally with a director specialising in modern warfare the film release date is finally starting to move closer. Call of Duty is one of the biggest video games ever released, and when it finally launches as a movie there is no doubt that it would be massive!

When it comes to the number of players hooked on this first-person shooter game, figures released in 2007 indicated that 100 million people were actively playing and by 2014 it was believed that daily players were enough to fill no less than eighty of the world’s biggest sports stadiums.

The first person shooting game with lots of wall to wall action as well as the franchise is well suited for a movie, and already a list of top celebs is staring in the game launch videos. When the director was asked about the type of film set that would be used, there were still a whole lot of ideas on the table including a futuristic war-torn or modern WW2 environment.

Stefano Sollima Specialist in First-Person Explosive Shootouts as Director

Stefano Sollima will direct the Call of Duty film and is known for the brilliant directing he did with Sicario2: Soldado. Sollima specialises in first-person explosive shootouts, modern crime films, which makes him perfect for the Call of Duty film. Although not confirmed yet the potential release date for the film is 2020.

When it comes to actors and believe me everyone hopes to be a part of such a massive production, Sollima already has two candidates in mind, which includes Chris Pine and Tom Hardy. When asked if it would be a replica like so many other war films, the directors replied that he intends to make Call of Duty different, at the soul of the franchise, this popular game tells a story, that of a soldier and the real tale is entertaining in a fun-to-play way. With millions of fans waiting for the release of the Call of Duty film, it could prove to be the film of the century!

“LEGEND OF ZELDA” SHOW IN THE WORKS FOR NETFLIX

The line-up for Netflix’s original programming just got a bit nerdy (as if the Marvel shows, like Daredevil, wasn’t enough.) The Wall Street Journal reported that Netflix is working closely with Nintendo on developing a Live-Action show based on the Legend of Zelda video game series. Currently, the show is only in its early stage of development, and Netflix are looking for some writers to recruit.

According to a Netflix representative, the show is going to be similar to “Game of Thrones” but appropriate for kids and families.

Any hopes or ideas you guys have in the show? For instance, what if every season covered a different Zelda game? Let us know in the comments!
