E3 2014 Trailerpalooza – Microsoft Edition

Yes, it’s that time again.  Gamer Christmas.  Also known as E3, the Electronic Entertainment Expo.  We at Save Game cut through the filler every year, and deliver what you want most: game footage.  So read on to experience Trailerpalooza: everything that Microsoft had to show off at their big pre-E3 press conference.  Spoiler alert: Halo.  Halo everywhere.

I’ll give you one guess what the first game Microsoft decided to show off was.  No, not Halo.  Call of Duty once again opened up the festivities, with an in-depth look at Advanced Soldier’s gameplay.  Even though it’s not actually an Xbox exclusive title.  Xbox owners will get the access to the game’s DLC.  Check it out below.

Next up was the annual car porn reel from the folks at Forza.  Forza Horizons 2 will be coming this September exclusively to Xbox.

And then there’s Evolve, from the makers of Left For Dead, coming this October to PC, PS4, and Xbox One.  Xbox owners will get first crack at the beta and DLC.

Those lovable scamps over at IGN got an extended look at the gameplay of Evolve, and they’ve been kind enough to share it with the world.

Speaking of annual porn reels, here’s the latest from Assassin’s Creed Unity.  Ubisoft was on hand to show off the game’s single player co-op gameplay, in which up to four players can join up to stealthily, or not so stealthily stab their way to victory.

Then it was time for a brand new look at Bioware’s Dragon Age: Inquisition, and it was hella pretty.

Next came an extended look at Sunset Overdrive, the exclusive Xbox One title from Insomniac Games.

Hey, remember when Fable wasn’t a joke?  The new game, Fable Legends, actually might be decent.  Take a look.

Then there was a new trailer for Project Spark, Microsoft’s answer to Little Big Planet.  Although this trailer featured precisely zero game footage, it did contain a nifty little cameo at the end.

Ori and the Blind Forest is a new exclusive game coming to Xbox One.

OK, stop… now Dance Central!

And then, finally, it was time for Halo.

Far more than a teaser for Halo 5: Guardians, Microsoft revealed the Master Chief Collection, remastered versions of all four Halo games starring the Master Chief, launching November 11.  These games will not only feature the single player campaigns, but also the multiplayer.  Over 100 maps in all, running in 1080p at 60 fps on dedicated servers, the Master Chief Collection is an impressive undertaking.  Check out the gameplay demo below.

And now for something completely different.  Indie games!

Next up is the debut of Inside.

Oh, and look what we have here… it’s Lara Croft in Rise of the Tomb Raider!

If Lara is the queen of this gamer prom, then Gerault is definitely the king.  Check out this new look at The Witcher 3.

And then it was time for Phantom Dust, another exclusive game coming next year.

Up next was a look at the multiplayer for Tom Clancy’s The Division.  If you’re playing E3 Bingo at home, go ahead and check the box for scripted in-game banter.

And then there was Scalebound, which features dragons, so you know it’s good.

Finally, we’ve got the return of Crackdown, exclusive to the Xbox One.

    Joe was born in a time of war. A console war. Two electronic titans were locked in a heated battle for the living rooms of America. Which titans, you ask? Well, the Fairchild Channel F and the Atari 2600 of course. You see, Joe is old. So many of his favorite games tend to be on the older side as well. But that hasn’t stopped him from developing unhealthy obsessions with such modern franchises as Halo and Mass Effect. Just don’t tell him how long it’s been since the original Metroid was released. His aging heart can’t take the shock.
