The Giant E3 2016 Games List

by Game Informer Editorial on Jun 08, 2016 at 03:00 PM

There's no shortage of gaming conventions throughout the year, but the Electronic Entertainment Expo is still the show where you're likely to see the biggest reveals and newest demos. That's why we've compiled a handy list of all the games we're expecting to see, which we will be updating as more announcements are made.

Below you will find the full (so far) list of all the games that have been either confirmed to appear at the show, or we strongly suspect will make an appearance when E3 kicks off in 10 days.

Kyle Hilliard, Matt Bertz, and interns Blake Hester, Haley MacLean, and AJ Moser all contributed to this article.

7th Dragon III Code: VFD


Abzu is impossibly gorgeous and almost equally mysterious. We’ll hopefully get to see more of the mysteries this aquatic explorer has hidden away.

Ace Attorney: Spirit of Justice

Agents of Mayhem


Attack on Titan

Battle Chasers: Nightwar
This RPG is a follow-up to Joe Madureira's comic series Battle Chasers. Madureira co-founded Airship Syndicate and Kickstarted Battle Chasers: Nightwar as their first project after leaving behind the Darksiders series following the fall of THQ.

Battlefield 1
The next Battlefield game is heading back to World War I, an interesting choice that has grabbed the attention of many fans. EA and DICE will premiere gameplay from the multiplayer at E3, and we can’t wait to see the weapons, vehicles, and environments of The Great War.

Blade & Soul

Beat Cop

Bertram Fiddle: Episode 2

Beyond Flesh and Blood

Black The Fall

For some of E3 2016's biggest shooters, head to page two.

Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare
Call of Duty is reaching for the final frontier in its latest release, with Infinite Warfare taking players to space. Including new gameplay mechanics incorporating gravity-free environments, you control Captain Nick Reyes in the distant future when earth has been stripped of its natural resources. The game will include a campaign and multiplayer modes, including a Zombie mode.

Carmageddon: Max Damage

Civilizations VI


Construction Simulator 2


Cross Code

Dead Rising 4

Deus Ex Go

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided
Multiple delays have hit the sequel to Deus Ex: Human Revolution, but the game still looks fantastic. With the release date set for August 23, we will likely see an extended gameplay demo at E3, showing off the game’s stunning graphics and some stealth action.

Dishonored 2
One of our most-anticipated games, Dishonored 2 will likely be a large part of Bethesda's press conference this year. We’ll hopefully get to see some gameplay this year, as well as go hands-on with dual-protagonist's Corvo Attano and Emily Kaldwin’s different powers.

Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2

Dragon Quest Builders

Drawn to Death

Duke Grabowski

Dwarves, The

For E3's biggest RPG and and its biggest third-person shooter, head to page three.

Eagle Flight


Elite Dangerous: Horizons

Everest VR

F1 2016

Farming Simulator 17


Final Fantasy Brave Exvius

Final Fantasy XV
It’s been a long, sometimes bumpy road getting Final Fantasy XV to its upcoming release in September. This should be the last E3 the game is present for during its decade-long development cycle. There’s still a lot to learn about Noctis and crew’s journey and hopefully what we’re shown during E3 will tide us over for a few more months.

Final Station, The

For Honor

Friday the 13th


Gears of War 4
We learned a lot about this game’s setting and plot earlier this year with our cover story, but we’re hoping to see more gameplay and some multiplayer reveals at E3. This game will likely be the Xbox One’s flagship title for the holiday season, so expect a big push for Gears of War 4 from Microsoft.

For E3's classic RPG and a surprise RTS, head to page four.

Ghost Recon: Wildlands
Ubisoft has a history of showing amazing, but slightly dubious trailers at past E3s and we can probably expect a similar showing for the upcoming Ghost Recon game. But a real treat would be to go hands-on and see if this game pulls off its lofty open-world strategic goals.

God Eater 2: Rage Burst

Guild 3, The

Gundam Extreme Vs. Force


Gyre: Maelstorm

Halo Wars 2
A much-requested sequel to the Halo strategy game was confirmed last year, and we will likely learn more about Halo Wars 2 at E3 this year, which is coming to Xbox One and Windows 10 platforms.

Hand of Fate 2


Hitman Episode 3

Horizon: Zero Dawn

Hover Cubes: Arena

I Am Setsuna
From developer Tokyo RPG Factory and publisher Square Enix, I Am Setsuna aims to bring old school JRPG styles and gameplay to modern gaming systems. Once a decade, a sacrifice is offered up to a fiend of an inhabited island and the latest victim is Setsuna, a Nive Village girl with magical abilities. She must now travel to the sacrificial ceremony to uphold the custom and protect her village.

For Nintendo's only game planned for E3, head to page five.

Kingdom Come: Deliverance

Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue

Last Guardian, The
Third time’s the charm for an E3 announcement of The Last Guardian. It was first announced at E3 2009 for a 2011 release that met delays, only to be reintroduced at E3 2015 with a release planned for this year exclusively on PlayStation 4. The Last Guardian follows the relationship between a young boy and his dog-cat-bird hybrid, Trico, through puzzle-based action and is expected to share similarities with creator Fumito Ueda’s previous games, Ico and Shadow of the Colossus.

The first game from Cliff Bleszinski’s Boss Key Productions has a quite a pedigree behind it. It will be interesting to see how the game stacks up to similar online shooters like Battleborn and Overwatch.

Legend of Zelda Wii U, The
This is the only game Nintendo is bringing to E3 this year, and will be hosting livestreams for the entire week showing off the highly-anticipated title. We still know very liuttle about the game, including its official subtitle. This year fans are expecting to finally learn some of the big details about Link’s next adventure coming to the Wii U and NX sometime in 2017.

Legend of Heroes: Cold Steel II

Lego Dimensions

Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens
The fifth entry in the Star Wars Lego series will focus on the latest film, Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Always wacky and full of humor, the Lego games seek to stick to the plot of the films they mimic, but add their own Lego flair.

Lego Worlds

Let it Die

Long Journey Home, The

For what's next from Madden and the Mafia franchise, head to page six.

Madden NFL 17

Mafia III
Developer Hangar 13 is taking a few risks with its first game, both tackling a rough time in American history – the 1960s – and taking over development of a franchise that once belonged to a different studio. Mafia III looks great and there will hopefully be some hands-on time with the game this year at E3, though we’d also settle for a little more information on the game’s intriguing looking story.

Mordheim: City of the Damned

Nier: Autonoma
Platinum Games is working on a sequel to the Drakengard spin-off, Nier, with Square Enix. The PlayStation 4 exclusive looks like it features the unique role-playing aspects of the original Nier combined with Platinum’s trademark fast action. We hope we get to chance to play it this year.

For the Hello Games' massive universe and the game that might hold you over until the next From Software game, head to page seven.


No Man’s Sky
Using procedurally generated worlds, No Man’s Sky allows the player to traverse between over 18 quintillion planets. By exploring planets, players can submit what they find to The Atlas, an online database shared with other players. It was recently delayed by seven weeks, with the release currently set for August 9 on PlayStation 4 and PC.


Other 99, The

Outlast II


Persona 5
The Persona series has garnered a rabid fanbase that has been waiting a long time for this game’s release date. We know it hits Japan on September 15, and we should learn the release date for North America at E3. The trailers for Persona 5 look fantastic, showing off everything we’ve come to love about this series as well as some interesting new mechanics.

PES 2017

Police Tactics: Imperio

Rainbow 6 Siege DLC

We don’t know too much about ReCore right now, aside from it being developed by a team comprised of team members who worked on Metroid Prime and Mega Man creator Keiji Inafune also being involved. We’ll hopefully get to see some gameplay at E3, or at least learn more about the girl and her robotic dog we saw in its reveal trailer shown last year at Microsoft’s press conference.

River City Tokyo

Road Rage

For a pair of games we've heard very little about since their announcement, head to page eight.


The latest from Hideki Kamiya won’t be out until sometime next year, and we’ve still seen relatively little of this Xbox One exclusive in action. The most recent gameplay demo left some fans unimpressed at Gamescom 2015. Many aspects of this game, including its open world, have yet to be fleshed out, so we're hoping to learn more during Microsoft’s presentation this year.

South Park: The Fractured, But Hole
From South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone,South Park: The Fractured, But Whole represents a sequel to their 2014 release, South Park: The Stick Of Truth. Using their superhero alias’ Coon and Friends, the boys will attempt to confront Professor Chaos (aka Butters) who has stolen the precious Stick Of Truth in this RPG adventure. Its announcement was a big surprise last year, and we're hoping to see Parker on Stone on stage again as they are consistently the funniest part of any video game conference they attend.

For the next game from the creators of Gone Home, head to page nine.

Fullbright’s long-awaited follow up to Gone Home, Tacoma puts players on the deck of the titular space ship, leaving it up to them and main character Amy Ferrier to find out why it’s been abandoned. After a recent six month delay, pushing its release to 2017, we’re hoping to learn more about the game.

Tekken 7

Telltale’s Batman

Titanfall 2
Only a brief teaser has been released for Titanfall 2 so far, but it features giant robots with swords, so we’re already excited. The follow-up to Respawn Entertainment’s futuristic shooter will have a larger focus on single-player content, and is also coming to PlayStation 4 this time around.

Turing Test, The




Warhammer 40K: Inquisitor – Martyr

Watch Dogs 2
Ubisoft pulled the curtain back on its sequel to the open-world hack-a-thon. It has a new protagonist capable of pulling off slick parkour maneuvers and will take place in San Francisco.

Werewolves Within

Wild Guns Reloaded

Worms Battlegrounds

Worms WMD


Developed by Playtonic Games as a spiritual successor to Banjo Kazooie, Yooka-Laylee is an exploratory 3D-platformer with a cooperative duo of a chameleon and a bat as they collect golden book pages called ‘Pagies’. Former staff from Rare Kickstarted it last May where it acquired £1 million in just 21 hours. We hope we get a chance to play it and see how the platforming feels compared to its inspiration.
