The Best Games at the E3 Expo in Los Angeles – Report
The biggest and most important event in the world has taken place in Los Angeles: Electronic Entertainment Expo 2018. Among this year’s participants were our JPeople: Paweł, Piotr and Marcin. Below we present a report by Paweł Smagała, featuring the most interesting attractions of his stay in Los Angeles.
We’ve been in Los Angeles since Sunday, and as soon as we got over our jetlag, we began to fulfil the mission which was the reason why we came. Namely, to closely examine what is happening in the gaming industry and what opportunities it could open for developers from JCommerce, who not only love to play games (of course), but would also love to help create them. Of course, the most important thing is business, but it wouldn’t be like us not to take the opportunity to play the latest games presented in the City of Angels.
E3 is not the only gaming-related event which took place in Los Angeles during our stay here, so before the fair started, we went to the EA Play 2018 event. The most important Electronic Arts premieres of the year were presented at the Hollywood Palladium, including Battlefield ™ V, Anthem ™, FIFA 19, Madden NFL 19, Star Wars ™ Battlefront II and Sea of Solitude.
After the start of E3, Piotr, our CEO, had the opportunity to be one of the first in the world to watch Cyberpunk 2077 – the new CD Projekt Red game – live. But this is not the only taste of Poland we have had here. To my surprise, The Witcher Geralt, the hero of the most famous Polish game in the world, had a cameo in … a Japanese fighting game, Soul Calibur. It’s great to see how Polish heroes can kick the butts of Japanese warriors.
We also had the chance to see the new version of Fallout, this time in the form of a multiplayer Fallout 76 game. In the gallery below the post you can see the legendary PowerArmor helmets from the game (picture 9).
We almost paid for a look at the Resident Evil 2 remake with our lives, because the zombies turned out to be just as bloodthirsty in reality as in the game. Fortunately, Marcin defended us, and you can see proof of his heroic act in the gallery below.
We also watched a tournament of the popular game Fortnite, in which 50 American celebrities (although mainly B-listers, admittedly) faced off with 50 streamers. The winning pair included Marshello, a music producer known mainly for the popular hit “Friends” (by the way, in the tournament he turned up in the same outfit as in the music video for this song). The victors raised $ 1 million for charity.
In addition, we watched and had the opportunity to play the latest versions of Assassin’s Creed, Odyssey, which tells the story of the Spartan warrior this time, (photos with the title of the game) and exclusive Playstation games like Spiderman, Last of Us: Part 2 and Death Stranding.
Of course, you could still play a lot of other games at the fair, but the queues were huge so it was not always worth waiting. But we got a sneak peek at such games as the new Tomb Raider, Trials, Tom Clancy’s The Division 2, Call of Duty Black Ops 4, Forza Horizon 4. We also saw gameplay from Rage 2, the new Doom, and the announcement of Elders Scrolls 6, successor to the famous Skyrim.
