On Wednesday afternoon, Sony started sending out invitations for its E3 2015 press conference. Both Nintendo and Microsoft announced their own E3 plans earlier in the week, which means we now know when we can expect to learn more about the game release schedules for all three major consoles in mid-June.

On Tuesday, Ubisoft revealed Assassin’s Creed Syndicate, the next entry in the Assassin’s Creed franchise. The follow-up to Unity will be set in 19th century London, with players taking on the role of Jacob Frye, a gangster who wants to steal from the rich aristocrats and give to the poor working class.
Eight years after what many expected to be the last game in the series, Tony Hawk is back. Game Informer revealed on Tuesday that Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5 will launch on PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One before the end of the year, bringing the franchise back to its roots with the classic gameplay gamers remember from the earlier 2000s.

There’s only one game development team working on two games that I can’t wait to play this fall: Avalanche Studios. You might remember Avalanche Studios from the fantastically chaotic Just Cause 2 way back in 2010, but the developers have been hard at work on both that game’s follow-up and another, even more intriguing project over the last five years.
When I elected to review MLB 14 The Show last year, I thought I might be in over my head. I hadn’t played any of the recent entries in the series and I didn’t think I would fare especially well within the game, regardless of how well put together it was. Thankfully, my worries were misplaced, and I found myself immersed in a sports game for the first time in years.
I was hoping to have a similar experience with MLB 15 The Show, but after spending hours with San Diego Studio’s sequel, I have begun to see through the veneer of the improved visuals and have found a game that feels more like a step backwards than a home run.
Save for Forza Horizon 2, my personal game of the year in 2014, I have been sorely disappointed by the racing game lineup of the new generation. Need for Speed: Rivals felt like a step back after the incredible Most Wanted, Driveclub didn’t live up to the lofty expectations, and The Crew was all but broken at launch.
Maybe the endlessly delayed Project CARS, which has finally gone gold, will put the genre back on track.
Next week, one of the most popular fighting game franchises of all time will make its debut on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. That’s right — we’re just a few days away from the launch of Mortal Kombat X, and to mark the occasion, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has released the official launch trailer for the game.
Another month, another batch of free games from Sony. Once you finally work your way through Bloodborne (providing you ever actually reach the end), you’re going to want to download some great free games in order to wind down. Just make sure that PS Plus subscription is still active.
