"Batman: Arkham Knight," "LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham" and "The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt" are just some of the games that Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment showcased during the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) 2014. The exhibit runs from June 10-12 at the Los Angeles Convention Center, California.
Danilo Napalan plays the new zombie survival game "Dying Light " in the Warner Bros. booth at the 2014 Electronic Entertainment Expo, known as E3, in Los Angeles, California June 10, 2014.
According to the E3 Web site, the premier entertainment developer and distributor exhibited "Batman: Arkham Knight," "Dying Light," "Gauntlet," "LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham," "Mad Max," "Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor," and "The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt." Unlike Sony Entertainment America LLC which mainly focused on games for PlayStation 4 (PS4), the games that Warner Bros. developed are available in wide platform choices.
"Gauntlet" is the first game arch title in the company's portfolio which is transported from direct game to the digital version. Just like the classic game, "Gauntlet" still has Warrior, Valkyrie, Elf, and Wizard - the four original characters. Up to four players can enjoy the game as they assassinate skeletons enemies, revive the dead, unearth the remnants, and accomplish the various challenges in the game. It will be released in PC within the year.
In "LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham," young and old fans of "DC Comics Universe" can marvel at the famous caped superhero as he fights against the evil enemy Brainiac. From the comic book, 150 unlockable characters are included like Flash, Wonder Woman, Solomon Grundy, Green Lantern, and Martian Manhunter. The game is due for release come Fall 2014 in PC, 3DS, PS3, PS4, PS Vita, Wii U, Xbox 360, and Xbox One.
"Batman: Arkham Knight" is dubbed as the last chapter in the "Batman: Arkham" trilogy which features Batman's Batmobile in a very sturdy version. Set in Gotham City, the famous character fights in a hand-to-hand battle with his opponents like Harley Quinn, Scarecrow, Two-Faced, Penguin, and an unnamed new character. The game will be launched come Fall 2014 and will be released to the market next year. It can be played through PS4, PC, and Xbox One.
Also due for release in Fall 2014 is the game "Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor" where players will have to take the role of Talion, a character who is cryptically gifted with Wraith Powers. Talion is revived from the dead between the events of the Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. Along the way, Talion kills, terrorizes, sacrifices, or spies enemies as he realizes the real reason behind his come-back. The game will be available in PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One.
In "Dying Light," up to four gamers can play at the same time as they scavenge for food, develop weapons, leap between buildings, and fight with zombies in order to survive. Although the most powerful infected creature appears only at night, players will have to brawl with their enemies 24 hours a day. The game is due for release on February 1, 2015 on PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One.
Another Warner Bros. game due for release on PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One next year is "Mad Max." Set in The Wasteland, players will look for supplies from different battlefields so they can create combat vehicle and fight with the spiteful group of bandits.
Just like "Mad Max," "The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt" will also be released next year but this time around the game will only be available in PC, PS4, and Xbox One. A hugely improved version of its past two games, "The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt" showcased the return of the monster-hunter Geralt of Rivia. The character has to fully utilise his better alchemy, tricks, and crafts as he combats against the enemy, the Wild Hunt which ranges across the fantasy world of the game.
