The Best Games Released During E3 2018

Jun 25, 2018

By: Max Cannon

E3 2018 brought some huge game announcements along with it and while most of those games feel pretty far away, looking at you Super Smash Bros Ultimate, there are a few games that released during the event! Here are our favorite games released during E3 2018!

1. Unravel Two

We loved the original Unravel so it's not surprising that Unravel Two's announcement would get us so excited. Seeing Yarny's return hyped us up but knowing that the game was revealed right after it was announced at EA's press conference meant that we could act on that hype right away. If you're a subscriber to EA Access you'll also have the game available without a full purchase! Here's what we had to say about the game in our review:

"Unravel Two has a less impactful story than the first game but its made up for with much stronger gameplay that can be enjoyed by lovers of single-player games or cooperative experiences. The short 5-ish hour campaign has a good amount of side-content to keep you engaged throughout and if you loved the charm and visuals of the first game then this will undoubtedly hook you even more."

2. Fortnite on Switch

We've long been hoping for Fortnite to make the jump onto the Nintendo Switch. The game has been captivating players since adding its Battle Royale mode last year and it's only gotten better. While there has certainly been some controversy around the game's cross-play situation on PlayStation devices, everyone else is enjoying the game more than ever before by supporting cross-play between every other device, so Nintendo players can bridge the gap with those over on Xbox. 

"The game is also much more family-friendly than PUBG, though both games are T-rated. Fortnite leans into a cartoon-y aesthetic with sci-fi influences throughout and the actual gameplay doesn't come across as though you're hurting enemies but kicking them out of some sort of "Battle Royale" type simulation when defeated (at least that's what little can be gleamed from the teleportation that happens to an eliminated player.) It's rare that a multiplayer game about shooting at enemies can be loved by all ages but Fortnite does so brilliantly."

3. Fallout Shelter Comes to Consoles

Announced at Bethesda's press conference, Fallout Shelter is making the jump from mobile devices and onto current generation consoles. While it may feel like an awkward fit over on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, the portability of the Nintendo Switch is a comfortable place for Fallout Shelter, it's also the best way to let younger players try out the Fallout universe with the title's much more accessible T for Teen rating by the ESRB. Of course, that free price tag makes it much more enticing to try out, same with Fortnite
