Most Anticipated Games E3 2011 Assassins Creed Revelations

Assassin’s Creed Revelations

While fans of the Assassin’s Creed franchise may have been hoping to see the story of Desmond’s war against the Templars of Abstergo come to an end in Assassin’s Creed 3, Ubisoft surprised us all by announcing that they would once again be going back to the well of Ezio Auditore with Assassin’s Creed Revelations.

Some may have seen the move as an effort to further delay any clarifying of the overarching story, but recent information has led us to believe otherwise, with the game’s latest trailer showing that fans may have misunderstood the importance of Ezio and Altair altogether.

With that in mind, Revelations is shaping up to be something entirely new in the series, not just another retread. We don’t know how the game will combine the ability to play as both Ezio and Altair into a common purpose, but the idea of experiencing something new within the world of Assassin’s Creed, and better understanding Brotherhood is more than enough to get our attention.

Most Anticipated Games E3 2011 Gears of War 3

Gears of War 3

Already the top pre-ordered console exclusive for Xbox 360 with months still to go before it releases in September, Gears of War 3 just enjoyed a very successful and popular multiplayer beta which lasted a month and continues to be one of the most promising games of the year. After playing it extensively, the Game Rant team already misses it, and the three game modes and four maps offered in our demo already proved it to be one of the year’s best multiplayer titles.

Gears of War 3 acts as the trilogy’s conclusion to the tale of Marcus Fenix, and the game made a revealing splash at last year’s E3. Having seen that and played the game since, we wonder what new revelations will be had during their presentations at this year’s E3, since the game has become one of the most important releases for Microsoft’s home console this year.

  • Ken J

    Battlefield 3 is definitely my number one, and interested in Bioshock Infinite too…

  • man

    Mass Effect 3 is easily my most anticipated, we’ve seen videos of all the other games except Mass Effect 3. I also like all the other games except zelda

  • Driver

    Driver San Francisco

    • Rob Keyes

      Jason Weissman and I played it for Game Rant at last year’s E3 at the Ubisoft booth. It was neat but we’re curious what a full year has done for the game, especially with so many racers having come out over the last 12 months.

    • Jason Weissman

      Agree with Rob. Thought the game would be out before this E3, so I’m glad to see that it wasn’t shelved. We got to play one of the competitive multiplayer modes last year, but I’m more interested to see how the single-player action pans out.

      • Gary

        So you guys must be popular…huh

  • jesse685

    Need for Speed: The Run, I wanna see Frostbite 2.0 put the game to the test.

  • Val

    Skyrim, hands down. I will disappear for days…even weeks when that masterpiece of a game hits the shelves.

    • Rob Keyes

      I’m with you, Val. That’s my #1.

    • Sebastian Gaweda

      This is exactly why I refuse to play it. Maybe just a little …

      • Andrew Dyce

        The first one’s free, Seb…

  • nukman

    Uncharted wins again mates…

    • chris

  • Timmy

    After skyrim is released I will never be seen again

  • Skyrim

    Don’t call the cops if I can’t be found after skyrim comes out :]

  • McKane

    Skyrim will destroy. No doubt.

  • Diarma

    You missed Aliens: Colonial Marines, the one FPS that really needs to be made. It certainly looks more interesting than MW3…

    • Kage

      Zelda and Mass Effect 3 are my most anticipated.

  • KellyTed27

    Concur on Zelda. It doesn’t get any better than this

  • MEDzZ3RO

    Based on this list I’d have to say Battlefield 3 and Assassins Creed: Revelations but the games I’m most looking forward to seeing are Dark Souls and Street Fighter X Tekken.
    As for unconfirmed titles, I’d like to see GTA V, a Super Smash Bros. 4 announcement (on 3DS would be a nice bonus) and Left 4 Dead 3 (on PS3 too?).

    On a personal note – Mass Effect is overrated rubbish, played the second and thought it didn’t know if it wanted to be an RPG or shooter; so Bioware settled with it being in my mind a poor RPG and a mediocre shooter?
    I didn’t get it and found it incredibly boring.
