Audiences also saw the first gameplay footage of Babylon’s Fall, an upcoming SquareEnix and PlatinumGames title. The game looks like it will be heavily focused on combat and we were told that more information will come next summer.

Resident Evil Resistance

Capcom revealed that there will in fact be a campaign for the upcoming Resident Evil Resistance game, which was previously thought to be only a 1v4 online experience. In true Resident Evil fashion, the campaign seems to focus on an isolated city dealing with an outbreak of infections. The trailer wasn’t quite clear, but it does seem like there is some sort of coverup regarding the root of the outbreak that your character is trying to get to the bottom of.

Resident Evil 3 Remake

The leaks and rumors were true. Right after the Project Resistance trailer, there was a fantastic, abrupt cut revealing that the Resident Evil 3 remake does exist and is coming soon on April 3, 2020.

Ghost of Tsushima

But wait, there’s more! PlayStation took a cue from Nintendo and added on a surprise clip from a trailer of Ghost of Tsushima. The clip wasn’t very long and didn’t show very much – just three men in a forest getting ready for combat – but don’t worry, the full trailer will be shown at the Game Awards on Thursday night.
