Sea of Thieves
Rare promised a steady stream of free DLC for Sea of Thieves post-launch. The Hungering Deep kicked things off with a massive megalodon last month, and The Cursed Sails (July) and Forsaken Shores (September) DLCs are the next to come.
Dragon’s Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age
Yep, Echoes of an Elusive Age sure does look like a Dragon’s Quest game.
Ubisoft’s dirtbike stunting game is a known quantity at this point, but I’m still looking forward to delving back into it again with Trials: Rising. And if you’re on the fence, there will be a closed beta later this year. You can find the sign-up details here.
The Goat Simulator devs over at Coffee Stain are finally moving on to a new project, Satisfactory. And in case the pun isn’t clear enough: It’s a factory game, sort of a blend of Infinifactory’s 3D puzzling and Factorio’s logistics simulations. I’m not sure what to think about it, except if history’s any indication I’ll get hopelessly addicted to building out conveyor belts again.
Okay, so it’s basically a Jaws game—except you play as the shark. Ruin people’s vacations by jumping out of the water and biting them, in this “SharkPG,” complete with a whole shark-oriented skill tree. It’s like Goat Simulator, but maybe even weirder?
We have no idea what Raw Fury’s Sable really is, but the gorgeous Moebius-inspired art alone is enough to pique our interest.
Don’t Starve: Hamlet
Don’t Starve is the survival game that keeps going and going. The latest entry? Hamlet. From the DLC’s Steam store page:
“In Don’t Starve: Hamlet, Wilson discovers a lost town of aristocratic Pigmen nestled within a foreboding tropical jungle. Reacquaint to city life with pig shops, houses, new items, biomes and more, or delve into the ancient pig ruins and try your hand at treasure hunting in this new single player expansion.”
I don’t know why Ubisoft didn’t bother showing off Anno 1800 during its own press conference, but luckily the PC Gaming Show had our backs. Not much to go on in this trailer, but it looks like the typical Anno blend of trade, resource management, and city building, except obviously set during the Industrial Revolution. Expect lots of big ships, coal, and windmills here.
A Cyanide & Happiness battle royale game? The premise alone perks our ears up, and this trailer’s hilarious.
Mavericks: Proving Grounds
Finally, let’s end with the most E3 2018 announcement of all the E3 2018 announcements. Mavericks: Proving Grounds is a battle royale game with not 100 players dropping in, but one thousand.
That’s it. We’re calling this a wrap, folks. Stay tuned for more E3 2018 coverage all week long.
