As the flow of news from Computex dies down, we're being treated to a refill of novelty and excitement thanks to E3. The show has seen the release of a whole slew of new trailers and gameplay videos, including clips for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, Battlefield 3, and Far Cry 3.
I was particularly excited to check out the Skyrim gameplay video, since we haven't had much to chew on beside screenshots since Bethesda announced the game. The seven-minute clip up at GameTrailers more than makes up for that:
EA has also released a couple of Battlefield 3 videos: one showcases the feature of the new Frostbite 2 engine, while the other offers a glimpse into the game's multiplayer. Video embedding doesn't seem to work well with EA's player, so you'll want to click through to the publisher's website to watch 'em. Both clips look absolutely gorgeous. I fear I may have to upgrade in order to enjoy all that eye candy once the game comes out.
I was surprised to see that Far Cry 3 is not only in the works, but far enough along to be featured in a lengthy gameplay video of its own (which you can watch at Joystiq). Far Cry 3 looks to revive the open-world tropical island setting of the first game, but with a twist. Apparently, everyone on the island is insane—and murderous to boot. Here's hoping the game can season the exploration and combat with a dash of psychological horror.
