E3 hosted an award show dedicated to all the games screened during this year’s convention. It closed the fourth night of the all-digital exhibition and awarded prizes to a select number of games from the show.
E3 awarded the most anticipated games from Microsoft and Nintendo and awarded the trophy for the best overall presentation. These are the winners of last night’s ceremony.
Overall most anticipated game: Forza Horizon 5
Forza Horizon 5 passed E3 this year and stole the hearts of many. With its beautiful graphics and sharp detailed representation of Mexico, it’s no surprise that so many people are talking about this game. It just shows you that an extended trailer with attention to detail can go a long way.
Best Presentation: Xbox and Bethesda
Xbox and Bethesda entered E3 with strong presentation fundamentals. It has a lot of trailers for upcoming games, highlighting highly anticipated games like Starfield and Halo Infinite. It makes it even sweeter by showcasing some of the titles that will be available on day one via Xbox Game Pass. It finally revealed the perfect “one more thing” with Redfall. This is everything one could want from an E3 conference.
Microsoft and Bethesda’s Most Expected Game: Halo Infinite
Speaking of Xbox, the E3 Prizes program gave Halo Infinite awards for the most anticipated Xbox and Bethesda game. This year, we took a closer look at what’s in store for multiplayer experience as well as a new trailer for the campaign.
Most anticipated Nintendo game: Breath of the Wild 2
Nintendo was one of the last major presenters at this year’s show, and it made a big splash with its final reveal, a new trailer for Breath of the Wild 2. The trailer gave us a better look at Hyrule, which now has an aerial component and some of the enemies Link will face. It also gives fans new details to dissect, such as Link’s new arm attachment that appears to double as a flamethrower. It’s a perfect trailer to keep fans engaged until the game launches in 2022.
