The Simpsons Writers and Producers Coming to E3
A tweet surfaced via E3’s official Twitter account signalling that the writers and producers of The Simpsons will have a panel at E3 on June 11. The dominant speculation is that a new ‘The Simpsons’ video game will be announced. It has been quite some time since the gaming community last saw a game featuring the famed dysfunctional family so fans presume one is due out. The speculations have not been confirmed so now fans will look to the 11th when the writers make their address.
Evidence Points to Possible New Darksiders and Destroy All Humans Announcements at E3
There is a possibility that THQ Nordic will be announcing new Darksiders and Destroy All Humans games at E3 2019. This speculation arose when Gaming Bolt noticed that THQ Nordic’s E3 floor plan included spaces for two unannounced games. One of the games was hinted as a “return of a galactically beloved franchise” and the other a “new vision of a beloved franchise.” Based on the somewhat cryptic descriptions among other subordinating details, it is a fair guess that those are the games in question.
Leak Suggests Fable 4 Announcement at E3
A listing for Fable 4 recently showed up on Mixer which suggests an incoming reveal of the new instalment in the Xbox series. For those who don’t already know, Mixer has an auto-fill feature that lists games steamers can pick from when signalling what they are currently streaming. Fable 4 was not there before now so the chief speculation is Mixer received word that the game would be coming soon hence its inclusion. Some argue that if the game is to be unveiled as presumed, it will be done at E3 2019.
CD Projekt Red will Show New Cyberpunk 2077 Gameplay at E3

Thus far the company has 22 confirmed PlayStation 4 games that will be making appearances. Among the lot, are some fan favourites like Apex Legends, Anthem and Battlefield V. Sony’s rationale for its absence is the desire to showcase its games in new and different ways compared to previous years. Supposedly this will grant each game its own spotlight.
Square Enix Teasing The Avengers Project Announcement this E3
Square Enix has been teasing its E3 2019 press conference on Twitter and the Avengers Project is one chief subject that has been heavily linked. The developer had published two recent tweets in which the colours in the background appears to be synonymous to that of the infinity stones. Consequently, many are convinced that the aforementioned Avengers Project will feature at the developer’s press conference. However, all speculations will go unconfirmed until E3.
E3 Nintendo Direct will be All About Switch Games Launching this Year
Nintendo will be hosting a Nintendo Direct to kick off E3 2019 on June 11, 2019. The session will dominantly focus on Nintendo Switch games that will be launching this year. Even though Nintendo didn’t explicitly state that it will not be covering any content regarding 2020 releases, none was announced. There has also been no mention of the Nintendo 3DS so a safe assumption is that it will not be featured either.
Fortnite to hold Celebrity Pro-Am, Time Trial Challenges to E3
Epic Games has confirmed that Fornite will be at E3 and is extending invitations to the Fortnite booth at the South Hall of the LA Convention Center. Surely, E3 would not be complete if the biggest game in the world did not make an appearance so the announcement will serve as a source of glee for many. At the Fortnite booth, attendants will be able to play popular creative games with friends at the Time Trials, Arcade and Player vs Player stations. The developer also promises a chance to win many prizes.

Reports Say CD Projekt Red to Reveal Cyberpunk 2077 Release Date at E3
Industry insider ‘Braldryr’ on NeoGAF says that CD Projekt Red plans to reveal the release date for their highly-anticipated open-world RPG, Cyberpunk 2077, at this year’s E3 — specifically during Microsoft’s press conference. Braldryr is not affiliated with CD Projekt Red though, so take this rumor with a grain of salt. The developers have however hinted before that E3 2019 will be the game’s most important E3. We already know public and closed-door gameplay reveals are happening, so a release date announcement wouldn’t be too farfetched.
Gearbox to Reveal New Borderlands 3 Vault Hunter and Planet at E3

The studio is set to show off new footage that includes both a new vault hunter and one of the new planets players will get to visit in the third instalment.

The game will also be playable at the expo, so if you’re headed there this June make sure to stop by the Borderlands 3 and 2K booths.

A Difficulty Slider will be Added to Pathologic 2
Pathologic 2 is no doubt a hard game and the developers added a difficulty slider but is suggesting that players should not use it. For Pathologic 2, the game is difficult because it is very hard to figure out and most of the time players do not know what to do. So what the developers thought of doing is to still maintain the game’s weirdness and just smooth out the confusing parts. Pathologic 2 has three parts. The first part Haruspex is already live the two other parts have no release dates yet.
Ubisoft Could be Working on a Subscription-Based Service
The Ubisoft Store could possibly have a subscription-based service in the works as seen in a leak that has since then been taken down. Recently, a placeholder for the Ubisoft Premium Pass had appeared in the store but was deleted immediately.

Both sites claim that the news was given to them by somebody who is close to Sony. For right now, we suggest that you should take this news with a grain of salt, as we don’t have any way of confirming it. But if you think about it, since Sony is skipping E3 this year, it could be possible that they will be making their own announcements prior to the event.
Super Mario Odyssey Modded into Mario 64

If you head on over to Emanuar’s channel you will get to see a lot of Mario 64 mods.

Death Stranding Teaser Trailer Shared
A teaser trailer has been released for Death Stranging, the very first game from Hideo Kojima after separating with Konami. The teaser is quite strange showing an outline of a hand as well as the words “Create the rope”. It is really hard to make any sense of the trailer. Another tweet had been shared and it seems like we will know more when May 30 arrives. For right now no release date has been given for the game but it is set to launch for the PC and PlayStation 4 and most possibly for the PlayStation 5.
