Pre-E3 Game News Update

E3 is kicking off today and before all of that excitement begins, I need to drop the rest of this week’s gaming updates and then start covering the big show! Without further ado, let’s get to it! 


As stated above, E3 is kicking off soon, but there have been plenty of things going on prior to the show such as Summer Game Fest, which was absolutely great, by the way! I’m not going to recap everything here, but I am going to give you the tidbits! One of those tidbits and it’s a pretty big deal to me, is that Elden Ring has finally got a release date. Yes, you read that correctly, Elden Ring has a release date!!! 


Elden Ring was announced back in 2019 and it’s been on the minds of gamers everywhere. We have seen and heard very little about this title and honestly, I didn’t expect a release date to be as close as it is and I am smitten. Dropping on January 21, 2022, Elden Ring will finally be in the hands of all that have been awaiting its arrival. To top it off, there is a decent trailer that has also been released! Check it out below!!

For us Call of Duty fans, season 3 of Warzone and Black Ops Cold War is about to end and with that begins season 4! PSA, if you want to get your hands on the Rambo and or John Mclane skins, grab them before season 3 ends! Season 3 aside, we know there is going to be a road map revealed for season 4 on June 14th, but we do know a little bit about what’s to come. 


Black Ops Cold War is getting some new game modes and of course maps. There is also the promise of another round based zombies mode in season 4. And while I can’t really be sure of map changes coming to Verdansk in Warzone, we do know the satellites will come crashing down onto the city and likely change a few things. I just don’t know what those changes will be just yet. Come on June 14, I’m getting antsy here! Also on June 14th, we’ll be treated to double XP and double Battle Pass XP to finish up season 3. Season 4 begins on June 17th and I can’t wait! 


Remember Death Stranding? The game that was a critical hit, but also seemed to be critically confusing for some? Well, Hideo Kojima is releasing a director’s cut for the PS5. What the director’s cut will include isn’t readily available for us at this time, but once Kojima releases let us know, we’ll let you know as well! I’m sure we can expect to see upgraded frames per second, maybe a boost in graphics and its details, possibly some extra storyline content and who knows else? I’m sure that PS4 owners of the game won’t be getting a free upgrade of the directors cut, but hey, news is news! I’ll update you later on once we know more. 


Last but not least, today’s tidbits is an interesting announcement and I don’t know exactly where this will go, but I’m intrigued by the possibilities! Anyway, former developers of Treyarch (Call of Duty Black Ops developers) have formed a new development company named Deviation Games! While that’s interesting enough, here’s what’s on my mind. Deviant Games has partnered with Sony to work on a “groundbreaking AAA new IP and we’ll have more details later this year. 


We have no clue what this could be, let alone any idea of the genre, but I’m assuming it will be a First Person Shooter. Either way, if it’s a brand AAA title that will be a Sony exclusive, I’m sure we can expect something big! I hope… anyway, can’t jump on the hype train if I don’t know what to get hyped about, right? Screw it. I’m hyped and I don’t even know why! Must be E3 dropping in! 


Thank you for reading this week’s gaming update. We’ll be covering a ton of updates over the upcoming days with E3, so be sure to come back and check us out again later on! As always, I’ll see you online!
