And now to something completely different….
Devolver Digital – MaxPass+ Showcase – E3 2021
Devolver has been known for several years for packaging their E3 presentations in satirical to extremely sarcastic promotional presentation films. Here, mostly certain clichés and grievances in the gaming industry are taken up and used in a strongly ironic view. The topic this time was probably the Games as a Service, Monetization, Premium Pass, etc. corner. Corner, which got all sorts of side blows and ridicule.
I’ll get to the individual games in a moment. But it’s absolutely worth taking a look at the entire show. There’s quite a bit to smile about and also quite well-acted gags to see.
Devolver Digital MaxPass+ Showcase – complete Show
Okay, and then to the individual games:
Shadow Warrior 3
The Shadow Warrior series is very well known and popular. The third part is a technically very upgraded Doom-like splatter shooter with ninjas and rather funny gameplay in an Asian setting. Devolver had already shown a first trailer some time ago, but for E3 there was now completely new gameplay to see.
Release: 2021 Xbox One, Playstation 4 and PC on Steam: https://store.steampowered.com/app/1036890
Shadow Warrior 3 Gameplay Trailer 2 – E3 2021
Trak to Yomi
Actually not that dissimilar to the previous game, Trak to Yomi brings a samurai / ninja side-scroller with a very special art style. Black and white passages, cinematic sequences, and a lot of sword-fighting action with gritty ambiance and lots of blood.
Release: 2022 for NextGen Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 5 and PC on Steam: https://store.steampowered.com/app/1370050
Trak to Yomi – Reveal Trailer – E3 2021
Phantom Abyss had already been briefly shown before E3. This is a first-person action game in which we run through Indiana Jones-like dungeons, dodge nasty traps, and jump over chasms. While running through a dungeon, you see the ghosts of those who have died before. The dungeons are supposed to be randomly generated from components, so it won’t be so easy to memorize the routes. Roughly, with the shadows, it reminds of a kind of Fall Guys with asynchronous multiplayer
Phantom Abyss – Gameplay Trailer – E3 2021
Wizard with a Gun
Release: 2022 for Nintendo Switch and PC on Steam: https://store.steampowered.com/app/1150530
Wizard with a Gun – Reveal Trailer – E3 2021
This game takes us to a world of crows. We play isometric action combat combined with puzzles, platforming, and dungeon bosses.
Release: July 22, 2021, for Xbox, Gamepass and PC on Steam: https://store.steampowered.com/app/894020
Death’s Door – Gameplay Trailer – E3 2021
This game looks very artistic and features a creepy card-based strategy game in pixelart style, deck-building, roguelike shimmers through between the lines here. The developers also talk about “Escape Room”-style puzzles, sounds like an interesting mix.
Release: 2021 for PC on Steam: https://store.steampowered.com/app/1092790
Inscyption – Reveal Trailer – E3 2021
Devolver Tumble Time
I suspect this is probably intended more as a gag and a meme. But it will probably still be an actual game, but that in itself is a spoof of other mobile games
Release: Android and IOS 2021 – Preregister: https://devolvertumbletime.com/
Devolver Tumble Time – Reveal Trailer – Mobile Game – E3 2021
An 8bit shooter with 80s vibes that will only be available as a physical version in retail stores.
Release date: 2022 for Nintendo Switch
Demon Throttle – Reveal Trailer – E3 2021
Microsoft Xbox & Bethesda Games Showcase – Summer Game Fest 2021
After the purchase of Bethesda by Microsoft, here are two big names in the gaming business presenting their new games, which have now become even bigger together. Meanwhile, almost everything that says XBox on it is also simultaneously available for PC in the XBox app. And with XBox Gamepass and XCloud Gaming, many of the titles are also available by subscription and on an enormous number of other devices via streaming, so you don’t even necessarily need an XBox console or gaming PC to play them (but of course, that would be better).
Here’s also a video of the full show in 4k, so the picture quality will certainly be better for many scenes than in the streams for the screening.
Xbox & Bethesda Games Showcase – Full Show – 4k
If you do not like to look it complete, but just looking for a particular game, here then also all the games again individually. Well, then on to the presentations of the individual Games, as with all by Corona conditionally, previously recorded.
It gets started with something that has been long-awaited. Todd Howard of Bethesda Game Studios immediately takes the stage to finally show off a new BGS role-playing game almost 10 years after Skyrim and 6 years after Fallout 4. Well, at least something of it. The trailer for Starfield was leaked beforehand and shown at the Washington Post, but even though there’s, unfortunately, no real gameplay to be seen, the graphics style is at least a major indicator of where Starfield might be headed. And there’s a release date at the end.
Release: will be released for Xbox Series X/S and PC on 11/11/2022
Starfield : Official Teaser Trailer – Summer Game Fest 2021 – E3
Into the Starfield: The Journey Begins
Update: On their YouTube Channel Bethesda Games Studios published a few days later another Video with some concept arts, a very little sneak peak of the new engine, and some more tidbits:
Stalker 2 – Heart of Chernobyl
If there is nothing really new (apart from F76) from the Fallout universe, then at least there is news about its Russian counterpart. Stalker 2, a sequel to the successful end-time role-playing shooter, is currently in the works and is once again set in the contaminated zone around the exploded nuclear power plant in Chernobyl.
Stalker 2 Heart of Chernobyl Gameplay Trailer – Summer Game Fest 2021
Back 4 Blood (Back4Blood)
The new four-player co-op zombie shooter from the makers of Left4Dead. Zombies vs humans, from the makers of the first games that had zombies when they weren’t hype. In addition to co-op multiplayer, there are also some new PvP modes that may have the potential to harken back to old Left4Dead days.
Release: Xbox and PC on October 12, 2021
Back 4 Blood – Official PvP Announce Trailer – Summer Game Fest 2021
From the makers of Just Cause and MadMax comes a completely new brand. Contraband offers four-player co-op action gameplay in an open world. The trailer shows 70s style and it seems to be about heists in the smuggling business.
Contraband – Announce Trailer – Xbox & Bethesda Games Showcase 2021
Sea of Thieves – A Pirate’s Life – Pirates of the Caribbean Crossover
It’s not Johnny Depp himself, but his and many other characters from the Pirates of the Caribbean universe will conquer Sea of Thieves in the new Free DLC Sea of Thieves: A Pirate’s Life.
Release: June 22, 2021 for free
Yakuza Series – Like a Dragon
Xbox brings the complete Yakuza series to the XBox Game Pass, as of now all are directly playable with it in the subscription.
Battlefield has been teased a bit elsewhere before the event, but here now is the first real gameplay. 128 player mass PvP, lots of different vehicles to use. Only somehow there seem to be no destructible buildings?
Release date: October 22, 2021
Battlefield 2042 Gameplay Trailer
Twelve Minutes, a very special game, was announced last year. A man is stuck in a time loop, his wife is accused of murder by the police and then he gets knocked out. After that, he has to relive the same 12 minutes over and over again. Like a Groundhog Day story, he can explore things, try things out, uncover secrets, and try to break the time loop at some point in the end. You look vertically into the world from above.
Twelve Minutes Release Date Announce Trailer
With Psychonatus 2 the successor of a 16-year-old, rather weird game will come, which does a lot of things differently. A platform game with a high story component and often unusual designs.

A Plague Tale was a surprise success for Asobo Studio and Focus. The story about the two siblings in times of plague and rat infestations swept many away. Now a new title with the addition “Requiem” appears, whether it is part 2, a prequel or sequel or spinoff, was not directly said.

Release date: October 28, 2021

With The Outer Worlds (not Wilds!), Obsidian Entertainment managed to pull off an ironic sci-fi RPG in the style of Fallout New Vegas without being allowed to make a Fallout. Unexpectedly, the studio now already announced Outer Worlds 2, even though the trailer hinted at non-existent content with a wink.
The Outer Worlds 2 Announce Trailer – Xbox & Bethesda Games ShowCase 2021
