What we remember (so far!) from Summer Game Fest 2024

The big E3 rout is no more, welcome to Summer Game Fest! For enthusiasts, it is above all a change of name since the big annual announcements, inseparable from the Californian show, are still there. And between the sequels, the new licenses, the returns of old glories, and even (even) the announcement of “new” consoles, we can say that this edition arouses curiosities and generates (sometimes) a little frustration.

Call of Duty Black Ops 6it's October 26

Everything is in the title. The military license, a real money maker from publisher Activision, arrives on October 25. PS5 players who feared having to invest in an Xbox or a PC Gamer (following the acquisition of Activision Blizzard King by Microsoft) to get their dose of frags will be happy to learn that the game will be released on their favorite machine. But Microsoft has not spent its money in vain since CoD Blak Ops 6 will be available, from the day of its release, on Game Pass.

Civilization VII

The king's return ? Or the emperor, the dictator, the president, the tribal chief… In short, the mythical license Civilization, born in 1991 from the imagination of Sid Meier, should be back in 2025 for a seventh opus. As was already the case for the sixth episode, it will be available on PC of course, but also on consoles (Xbox SerisesX/S and PS5).

A new trailer for Star Wars Outlaws

Despite a big gap after the announcement of the mandatory Internet connection to be able to play this solo game, let's remember, Star Wars Outlaws made a splash during Summer Game Fest with a new 45-second teaser. Come on, it was mainly about announcing a video much richer in information during the day on Monday. We remind you, Star Wars Outlaws is scheduled for August 30, 2024 (PS5, Xbox Series X/S and PC).

Aloy in briquette mode in LEGO Horizon Adventures

You could say that the Rampant is biting its own tail. The Horizon license, which already has two opuses (Horizon Zero Dawn And Horizon: Forbidden West), had the honors of a Lego set in the form of a Long Neck to build. Well, this gave ideas to Guerrilla Games and Studio Gobo, who have just made the title official for 2025 (on PC, Xbox Series X/S and PS5). LEGO Horizon Adventuresan adventure of Aloy textured in Lego style, in the vein of the many licensed titles of the same style: LEGO Star Wars, LEGO Harry Potter, LEGO Indiana Jones… We therefore expect a slightly more second-rate opus and undoubtedly less demanding than the original titles.

We lose our minds with Screenbound

Lovers of Shakespeare, Crescent Moon Games and Those Dang Games? You have to believe, since their baby Screenbound has everything of mise en abîme, so dear to the native of Stratford-upon-Avon. In fact, you play as a player in the middle of a video game. You will have to combine what you see on your portable console and what happens on the screen and thus combine 2D and 3D vision to find your way through labyrinthine levels; bring a good quantity of aspirin!

Doom plays it with a very medieval flame

It is the return of Doom, a game that needs no introduction. But the novelty of DOOM: The Dark Ages, it’s that we’re changing times; finished with the demons of the future, make way for the diabolical spawn of the Middle Ages. Despite this return to the past, lasers are still there, like buckshot or even the chainsaw. But to this arsenal, we can add a mass of weapons as well as a mount that is as scaly as it is dragonesque. Like the other titles, DOOM: The Dark Ages is planned for PC, PS5 and Xbox Series S/X.

If you haven't had the joy of discovering Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater on PS2 exactly 20 years ago (that doesn't make us any younger), we can't advise you enough to get started in Metal Gear Solid Δ: Snake Eaterthe same game, but in a 2024 version. A twisty storyline, vicious antagonists, bizarre adversaries, infiltration, camouflage and legendary boss fights will be there in 2025.

Perfect Dark returns (without Elvis apparently).

The De Lorean's engine has not had time to cool down before it propels us back to 2000, the year the “sequel” of Goldeneye 64, Perfect Dark. Agent Joanna Dark will return to service (on an unknown date, too bad) to save the world from the threat linked to the mega-corporation Core Mantis thanks to her multiple gadgets and a plethora of arsenal that she knows how to wield with her hands. fingers. The game from The Initiative and Crystal Dynamics also offers some course phases, if we are to believe the trailer revealed a few hours ago. We hope for a more accomplished game than Perfect Dark Zero.

Gears of War pass a head.

Marcus Phoenix fans were able to discover our favorite pest exterminator in a short video from the upcoming Gears of War: E-Day, without any gameplay elements yet. We will therefore have to wait a little to discover more about the story, the game modes, the technical performances…

We know (a little) more about Indiana Jones and the Ancient Circle.

Awaited by all fans of the archaeologist with the whip and the floppy hat, Indiana Jones and the Ancient Circle shared a nice video extract in-game of five minutes during which we were able to learn more about the game which will take place in regions as varied as high snow-capped mountains, lush jungles or deserts. But above all, we have confirmation that the adventure will take place in FPS mode and that everything will undoubtedly be much better put together than the scenario of Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. Released this year on Xbox Series X/S and PC.
