E3 2020: Games & Trailers To Expect (& Companies That Are Skipping)

The Entertainment Software Association has announced the lineup of E3 2020 attendees, confirming the list of publishers coming to the conference and those skipping it. Despite a few big-name absences, there are still many games and trailers expected to be shown at E3 2020, as well as some exciting unknowns.

Since Microsoft is gearing up for the holiday 2020 launch of its Xbox Series X console, E3 2020 will be a major event for Xbox fans. Microsoft will likely show off plenty of games running on the new console, including new reveals and the long-awaited Halo Infinite. But E3 2020 won’t be nearly as content-packed as console launch years of the past, since Sony is skipping E3 this year. The company will instead reveal its PS5 at some other event, leaving a big hole in the E3 2020 schedule.

All but one of the publishers attending have yet to announce their exact press conference times, but the ESA has confirmed which publishers will be exhibiting at E3 2020 in some form. Here are all the companies that will and won’t be at E3 2020, along with the games fans can expect to see from them.

Microsoft’s E3 Xbox showcase will undoubtedly be the show’s biggest press conference. The company will most likely reveal full details about the Xbox Series X’s specs, but the most exciting reveals will be about its other projects. Microsoft has announced its next-gen console is just called “Xbox,” suggesting the Series X is only one of several console permutations on the way. Perhaps Microsoft will reveal these during E3, but it might also wait until later to avoid confusion.

What is more certain is that the company will show off plenty of Series X games, which will be cross-gen with Xbox One for a year. Chief among its upcoming titles is Halo Infinite, which will likely get a full gameplay reveal. Microsoft could also show off new footage from Ninja Theory’s Hellblade 2: Senua’s Saga, Rare’s Everwild, and Obsidian’s Grounded. Additionally, Microsoft now owns several development studios with no exclusives yet announced. This could mean new game teases from Double Fine, inXile Entertaiment, or Compulsion Games. A new Forza game is also likely.

There’s been much talk of Microsoft’s focus on cloud gaming, as well. Its Project xCloud service could play a large role in Xbox’s strategy for the new generation, so expect reveals related to game streaming. The next generation may also involve some kind of evolution of Xbox Game Pass, possibly integrated with xCloud.

In 2020, Sony will skip E3 for the second year in a row. This is likely to have major effects on the E3 conference’s future, as more and more publishers have been pivoting from traditional conferences to direct-to-fan streams. Sony said E3’s “vision” did not align with its focus this year. Instead, it will reveal the PlayStation 5 at some other event, be it another conference like PAX or Gamescom or its own, separate showcase.

Many of Sony’s big upcoming games are planned to launch on PS4: Final Fantasy 7 Remake, The Last of Us Part 2, and Ghost of Tsushima will all release before the PS5. These could see cross-gen ports, but Sony has been quiet so far about PS5-exclusive games. Bluepoint Games, which created the PS4’s Shadow of the Colossus remaster, is said to be working on a next-gen game that will set a new graphical benchmark, but little else has been said about the PS5’s lineup. Perhaps Sony’s PS5 reveal will be accompanied by new game announcements, like a God of War or Horizon Zero Dawn sequel. Regardless, Sony’s historically hard-hitting exclusive announcements won’t take place at E3.

Unlike Sony, Nintendo will return for E3 2020. Nothing has been announced so far about its presence there, but it will likely follow its strategy in recent years, broadcasting a pre-recorded E3 Nintendo Direct presentation with new announcements, followed by an extended Nintendo Treehouse: Live show. Nintendo confirmed it has no plans for a Switch Pro in 2020, so fans shouldn’t expect any new hardware announcements – especially in a year crowded with Sony and Microsoft’s new consoles.

New games, on the other hand, are a sure bet. Rumors of new Metroid and Paper Mario games in 2020 suggest those announcements could come at E3, and Nintendo could also reveal more details about Breath of the Wild 2, Bayonetta 3, or Metroid Prime 4. Other unannounced games could also make an appearance, like the theorized Super Mario Sunshine or Odyssey sequel.

Publisher Ubisoft has traditionally held one of E3’s biggest conferences alongside the console manufacturers, and it will probably do so again as part of its confirmed attendance. The company recently announced it’s planning to release five triple-A games in the 2020-2021 fiscal year. Three of these – Rainbow Six Quarantine, Watch Dogs: Legion, and Gods & Monsters – were delayed from release windows earlier in 2020, and the last two are rumored to be an Assassin’s Creed game and Far Cry 6. It’s also confirmed that the Division 2 team is working on an Avatar game based on James Cameron’s movie universe, and the team that made Rainbow Six Siege is working on a new project.

EA was not included in the ESA’s list of conference exhibitors. While this means it won’t be presenting anything itself, it’s unclear if it will be absent entirely. It’s possible an EA game could be revealed during Microsoft or Nintendo’s press events, and EA could once again host its pre-E3 EA Play event, held nearby the actual E3 convention’s location. If this is the case, fans should expect games in the company’s flagship sports series and updates related to Apex Legends. It’s also possible the company could reveal a new Star Wars game, especially after Jedi: Fallen Order’s high sales.

Bethesda held press events for the past few E3 conferences, and that’s not likely to change this year. After the Fallout 76 fiasco, Bethesda has a chance to earn back some goodwill with more details on its single-player sci-fi RPG Starfield, which seems to be the publisher’s closest and most significant upcoming project. Otherwise, the company could reveal more about The Elder Scrolls 6, Fallout 76′s Wastelanders DLC, and the Deathloop and GhostWire: Tokyo games it announced at E3 2019.

Like EA, Activision is not included in the list of attendees, but its games may still show up in other company’s press conferences. This would likely include more content for existing games like Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, but fans could also see a surprise Activision-published, third-party title, like Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice. Additionally, more Activision remasters and reboots could be on the way.

The latest two Square Enix E3 shows have been a mix of exciting and underwhelming reveals, with highs like Final Fantasy 7 Remake and lows like The Quiet Man. If Square Enix hosts an E3 2020 conference, fans will probably see more from Marvel’s Avengers and Final Fantasy 14. A Final Fantasy 7 Remake “episode two” tease is also a possibility, along with new, strange game announcements and hopefully some news from the Tomb Raider franchise.

While not quite the major blow as Sony’s, The Game Awards host Geoff Keighley’s E3 2020 absence is yet another sign of the industry’s shift away from E3. Keighley said on Twitter he didn’t “feel comfortable participating” based on what he knew of the show so far. The ESA recently confirmed previously leaked plans pointing to E3 2020 as a “fan, media, and influencer festival,” focused on creating an experience for fan attendees instead of a collection of media-focused press conferences. For some time now, many have said E3 needs to go in this direction, but Keighley said E3 “shouldn’t just be a show floor.”

In addition to the bigger publishers, a number of smaller companies are confirmed to be attending. Sega, Capcom, WB Games, and Bandai Namco Entertainment America will all be at the show in some form, which means viewers could see announcements of games in the Sonic, Monster Hunter, Resident Evil, Batman, and Dark Souls series, among others. Limited Run Games has already confirmed its E3 press conference time for June 8, making it the first publisher to do so. Devolver Digital is not among the publishers listed by the ESA, but it will most likely stream its usual gore- and game-filled conference at some point during the show.

Best Super Bowl 2020 Commercials & Trailers | Screen Rant

Here are the best commercials and trailers aired during the 2020 Super Bowl event. The annual Super Bowl game is the highlight of the NFL season and one of the world’s premier sporting events, but it might be fair to say that there’s more attention paid to what happens away from the field than on it in the modern era, with the halftime show and the high-profile ads shown during commercial breaks often dominating post-match discussion. Movie studios also utilize this prime slot to promote their top releases of the year with a slew of hotly-anticipated trailers.

In 2020, another crop of A-list actors made light-hearted appearances in commercials, more lovable brand mascots were dragged out and movie & TV fans were afforded a closer look at some of 2020’s biggest franchises, both on the big and small screen. J-Lo and Shakira were a key topic after their performance during the halftime break, a spot of tongue-wagging triggered a cultural debate and the Baby Yoda phenomenon was in full effect, as advertising executives took full advantage of the small, green man of the moment and put their own spin on The Mandalorian‘s cultural icon.

Of course, there was also plenty of joyless drivel. Sorting the halftime wheat from the commercial chaff, these are the most worthy trailers and ads aired during 2020’s Super Bowl.

Nothing sells sugar-free fizzy drinks like Stephen King’s story of a deranged serial killer threatening his family with an ax. In a hilarious parody of Stanley Kubrick’s cinematic classic, The Shining, Bryan Cranston of Breaking Bad and Malcolm In The Middle fame does his best Jack Nicholson impression and the iconic flowing blood of the Overlook Hotel’s elevators becomes sweet, sugarless Mountain Dew. Naturally, Cranston plays his part to perfection and the loving recreation of Kubrick’s original movie isn’t half bad either.

By far the highlight of the 2020 Super Bowl’s selection of trailers was the first look at Marvel’s forthcoming TV range on Disney+, with early looks at The Falcon & The Winter SoldierWandaVision and Loki. There’s plenty for Marvel fans to dissect from this brief montage, including Sam Wilson impressively hurling Cap’s iconic shield, Wanda and Vision’s quirky, era-hopping sitcom madness and Tom Hiddleston’s Loki in a prison jumpsuit. Time will tell how the MCU fares in the world of streaming, but these early signs certainly look encouraging.

In late January, a Planters’ commercial achieved viral notoriety by killing off its century-old mascot, Mr. Peanut, in an Avengers: Endgame inspired marketing strategy. This bold move garnered the desired reaction online, spawning a wildly popular hashtag, and was intended as a build-up to the company’s Super Bowl spot. Starring Wesley Snipes and various other assorted food & drink mascots, this new commercial introduces Mr. Peanut’s baby successor, Baby Nut. Baby Yoda and Baby Groot won’t be duly concerned by this nutty rival.

Some of the trailers aired during 2020’s Super Bowl slots were more or less curtailed versions of longer clips aired previously, such as the F9 footage, but the trailer for A Quiet Place II contained some major details to excite fans of the original film. Although his character died in the original, John Krasinski’s Lee Abbott will return for this horror sequel (which he’ll also direct), most likely via the use of flashbacks. One of 2020’s most anticipated movies, this look at A Quiet Place II is a must-see Super Bowl offering.

In terms of pop culture references, there’s no beating Walmart’s effort, the centerpiece of which is the long-awaited return of Alex Winter as an older Bill S. Preston Esq. ahead of Bill & Ted Face The Music‘s release later this year. Aside from the clashing of old and young Bills, there are also great nods towards everything from Star Wars and Star Trek to Mars Attacks and Arrival. Aliens love Walmart, it seems, and this commercial will undoubtedly have science fiction fans hammering the pause button to pick up every Easter egg.

Much of the footage shown during Black Widow‘s Super Bowl spot will already be familiar to Marvel fans from the official teaser reveal late last year, but the clip does contain a few impressive new moments. There’s mention of the Avengers, a closer look at David Harbour’s Red Guardian and a gorgeous shot of the entire Black Widow family together on the battlefield. To top off the fun, there’s also a new image of the Taskmaster coolly kicking up a shield, and a tease that the movie’s logo might be more important than it seems.

Jason Momoa is widely known for his heroic, muscular roles as DC’s Aquaman and Karl Drogo from Game of Thrones, but even the King of Atlantis needs a mortgage while living on the surface, and Momoa was prepared to make light of his physical attributes in a Super Bowl commercial for Rocket. Anyone who has ever wondered what Momoa would look like as a Bill Bailey tribute act need look no further, but the CGI isn’t the smoothest here, especially compared to Walmart’s high-production effort.

Due to release later this month, the Super Bowl trailer for Sonic the Hedgehog takes a less conventional approach to marketing by hiring real-life athletes such as Allyson Felix and Kyle Busch to big-up Sega’s famous blue speedster. The interview-style parody is arguably more interesting than the actual movie footage shown, highlighting Sonic’s snarky wit and the improved design. Elsewhere, there’s a glimpse at the hedgehog’s showdown with Jim Carrey’s Dr. Eggman/Robotnik, combined with some material seen in previous trailers.

The Super Bowl more or less coinciding with Groundhog Day is a dream for marketers and, this year, Jeep took the opportunity to drive home their message about how exciting their vehicles are by showing how Bill Murray overcomes the mundane repetition of his ever-repeating day simply by driving a Jeep. This comedic commercial is a treat for Groundhog Day fans, with some amazing attention to detail in each scene, but the real star of the show is, of course, Murray himself, who is resplendent as ever, even when selling cars.

Ever wondered how Wonder Woman gets her armor so shiny? By using Tide (probably), and this funny skit sees Gal Gadot’s Amazonian come face to face with Charlie Day, who has decided to do his laundry in a mall. DC’s iconic superhero stops Day from doing said laundry, presumably saving the world. Tying into previous Tide commercials, this Super Bowl ad packs plenty into its short run time and, more than anything else, continues to build excitement ahead of Wonder Woman 1984‘s release later this year.
