10. Middle-earth: Shadow of War
11. Need for Speed: Payback
Although 2015’s Need for Speed reboot left many with a bitter taste in their mouth, Electronic Arts is now looking to make fans fall in love with the series again with this new Need for Speed entry. And we’ll be seeing more of it at this year’s E3 show too, after EA put out a superb-looking trailer earlier this month. The company also revealed that this game will feature three playable protagonists whom you will take control of in Fortune Valley, a fictional city which bears more than a passing resemblance to Las Vegas. Also, taking into account this will also feature improved car customization and other interesting features, Need for Speed: Payback will be one game many will be looking forward to seeing at this year’s E3.
12. Sonic Forces
There was a time when the Sonic games were renowned for their high-quality platforming gameplay, although more recent releases like Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric have left much to be desired truth be told. But Sega is pulling out all the stops this year to make Sonic the Hedgehog a dominant force in gaming again, releasing not one but two Sonic games this year. Perhaps the most interesting of these is Sonic Forces, which aims to offer high-speed gameplay and thrills like earlier 3D games in the series such as Sonic Generations did back in the day. So hopefully it will succeed at that, and also turn out to be one of the highlights at this year’s E3 as well.
