E3 2017 Highlights – EA + Bethesda

A Way Out

The standout in what was an otherwise standard affair with EA presentations.  Two men – whose hair has a bad case of the seventies – decide to break out of prison and have to do so by working together.  What’s interesting is that it is a two player co-op game that you play with someone either online or, preferably, in the same room as you.  There doesn’t seem to be any option for single player, so I’ll be curious to see how it is greeted by gamers and whether the mandatory two player mode will hinder or help sales.

Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus

There’s a lot to this extended trailer.  We are in an alternate world in which Nazi’s won the Second World War and the KKK are just casually walking the streets.  There are resistance fighters, such as the woman with the sadistic sense of humour, or the guy with the out of control robotic arm.   It’s a crazy world and I don’t know much about it, but I do know one thing: there’s a lot of Nazi’s needing punched killed in a bloody and gory fashion.  And boy, does the action look bloody fantastic.  If they get this right, this could be a great balance of well executed storytelling and balls to the walls action.  I’ll definitely be keeping an eye on this one.
