With E3 in only a few short days, leaks and reveals have already started to make their way onto the internet. Just this morning several trailers have been released showing off games that will without a doubt make their appearance at next week’s expo. It’s typical that there are quite a few leaks before E3 officially begins, but all of these trailers were intentionally released by their respective developers.
Dishonored – Arkane Studios (Bethesda Softworks)
Arkane Studios, one of the sibling studios alongside Bethesda Game Studios, has been hard at work on their latest game, Dishonored. With team members from a variety of different backgrounds, Dishonored looks to take influence from some of the best franchises out there. Obvious inspirations come from games like Bioshock, Assassin’s Creed, and Deus Ex. Look for Dishonored when it releases on October 9th.
Guardians of Middle Earth – Monolith
Monolith, the studio behind the F.E.A.R franchise and also the recent Gotham City Impostors, is working on the next installment in the Lord of the Rings universe. Guardians of Middle Earth is an action RTS game that pits various heroes against one another in 5v5 battles. With a cast of 20 different characters from the LoTR universe it should be a game on any fan’s watch list. Guardians of Middle Earth is set to release during the fall of 2012.
Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance – Platinum Games
Departing from the traditional Metal Gear Solid Games, Revengeance leaves the stealth roots behind in favor of more action oriented sword play. With a new slicing and cutting gameplay mechanic, this new trailer shows off a little of what you might expect from a deadly samurai. Metal Gear Solid Revengeance, now under a new developer, is slated to be released in Q1 of 2013.
