Third Party Developers at E3 2011

Jun 09, 2011

E3 is not just a place for console makers like Microsoft, Sony, or Nintendo to show off their stuff, there are also lots of third party game developers and publishers in the industry with exciting news as well!

Electronic Arts

EA leads the way with arguably the best game of E3: Battlefield 3. Joining this highly anticipated game are other sequels such as Mass Effect 3, Need for Speed and Bioshock: Infinite. EA is also bringing back some old franchises, such as SSX, the wild and stunt-focused snowboarding game. The publisher is also adding a twist to some of their popular games, such as The Sims Social, which will bring The Sims to Facebook, and showed off an awesome cinematic for Star Wars: The Old Republic:

Ubisoft

Ubisoft has a great offering for the upcoming year with their mix of core and casual games. For the hardcore gamer, there is Assassin's Creed: Revelations, Far Cry 3, and Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Future Soldier. Family gamers can look foward to Just Dance 3 and Raving Rabbids: Alive and Kicking, which will be for the Kinect. Additionally, there is Rocksmith, a guitar game that will actually teach you to play a real guitar, and Rayman Origins, the next game in the stellar Rayman series.

Capcom

Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition has just come out and Capcom is already announcing a remake of Street Fighter III: Third Strike, which will take advantage of new technology the same way that Super Street Fighter II: Turbo HD Remix did. If that's not enough fighting games for you, there is also Street Fighter X Tekken, feature Cole from inFamous.

The Rest

There was still more shown at E3 this year, but we will just mention here the ones that stood out the most. Square-Enix showed off Final Fantasy XIII-2 as well as a brand new multiplayer game called Heroes of Ruin for the 3DS. Batman: Arkham City, the sequel to Arkham Asylum, was shown, as well as Gotham City Imposters, a multiplayer FPS game where one team plays Batman wannabes and the other side plays as Joker wannabes. Finally, Sonic Generations will be coming out this year and featuring classic Sonic and modern Sonic, each with different special skills.
