With the hype surrounding E3, an important part of the event is always absence from discussions; the ever-present Pre-E3. This is the name given to the preceding week of E3, where many games journalists are given early chances to get hands-on with the already-announced games of the show. While it allows early previews of games, this event also leads to several trailers being released. Digitally Downloaded has cobbled the more noticeable trailers together of the Pre-E3 event in this post for easier access.
Please note that while not all of the games posted below have been confirmed for a digital release, those few unconfirmed games have been scheduled for a PC release, under their current circumstances it seems likely that they are to attain a digital release.
Hitman: Absolution “Attack Of The Saints” trailer
Hitman: Absolution is planned to be released on the 26nd of November, 2012 for Xbox 360, Playstation 3, and PC.
War Of The Roses gameplay trailer
War Of The Roses is planned to be released exclusively on PC in the third quarter of 2012. Knowing Paradox Entertainment, the game is most likely to be released digitally as well as in retail.
Quantum Conundrum trailer
The LEGO game series is still trucking along, but as of late the series seems to realize that it has worn itself out. LEGO Batman 2 plans to have Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman teaming up against the Joker and Lex Luthor, while LEGO Lord Of The Rings is…well, Lord Of The Rings. There’s the chance that this could be a LEGO game that expands upon the tired gameplay, but as of right now there are no gameplay details about the title. Hopefully this will overcome itself and become something more than another LEGO game.
LEGO Lord Of The Rings currently is to be released in August of 2012 for pretty much every video game platform in existence.
Arma III E3 Showcases Preview
Arma III is planned to be released exclusively on PC in the fourth quarter of 2012.
Dishonored gameplay trailer
Hybrid is planned to be released during the Summer of this year (2012).
