E3 2021 brings us what we did not have last year: e3. For obvious reasons, last year's convention did not happen at all. This year, The Electronics Entertainment Expo is back in a virtual-only capacity. The online platform is rocky, and that is the kindest description I can give. Regardless, it is allowing developers to show what they have for this year and beyond. This, in turn, allows people like us to get the information to you. As a gamer, I am thankful that the show is back.
E3 2021: Ubisoft
Ubisoft rushed the stage the moment e3 started. Viewer opinion of their show was less than glowing but they had a lot to show. Their big reveal was for Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora, coming to consoles and PC in 2022. Sadly, there was nothing shown or even spoken on Beyond Good and Evil 2. The games shown were:
Mario + Rabbids: Spark of Hope
Rainbow Six Extraction
Just Dance 2022
Of course, Far Cry 6 was also shown and the game is looking great. We got to learn more about the story and the Season Pass details. The ability fo play Far Cry 3 through 5 as their antagonists is coming. While Ubisoft will likely make bank off their upcoming titles, their e3 showing was greatly outshined by a much smaller company.
Devovler Digital Owns Day 1 of E3 2021
Devolver Digital stuck to their tradition of entertaining e3 viewers. The Devolver Max Pass Plus program is something that just needs to be seen. Clearly making fun of companies like Ubisoft and EA, Devolver showed their upcoming games during the presentation. The big reveal was gameplay for Shadow Warrior 3, but there is a lot more to look forward to. Check out the Max Pass Plus website to get first looks at:
Trek to Yomi
Wizard with a Gun
Devolver Tumble Time
