E3 2017 Weekend Recap

by Jeff Marchiafava on Jun 11, 2017 at 07:22 PM

EA and Microsoft got a jumpstart on E3 2017 this weekend. Here's all the big news, trailers, and more.

EA was the first publisher to show off its wares to the E3 masses, focusing in on new content for Battlefield 1, the next – and reportedly supersized – version of Star Wars Battlefront, and the company's illustrious library of sports titles. Microsoft followed things up on Sunday with a deluge of game trailers including Crackdown 3, State of Decay 2, and the long-awaited return of Cuphead. However, the biggest news from MS was the official release date and price announcement of the Xbox One X, which is coming on November 7 for a hefty $499. Finally, Bethesda rounded out the weekend festivities with a late-night press conference featuring new sequels like Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus and The Evil Within 2, and a standalone Dishonored 2 adventure. RPG fans were left hanging, however, as Bethesda Game Studios didn't have a major reveal of its own.

Our feed was flooded with all the newest announcements and trailers, but if you missed anything, fear not. Here's the full collection of this weekend's hot E3 news:
