What we want to see at E3 2018 next week

E3 2018 begins on Saturday and over the week that follows will deliver new games, new trailers, and new details of what PC games we’ll be playing in the years ahead. It is pure hype, all pomp and gloss and outlandish promises – but that’s exactly why E3 is great.

According to Eurogamer, those rumours were on the money: new Fable is coming, and it’ll be “a story and character-focussed open-world action RPG” made by UK developer Playground Games.

They’re the chaps that made Forza Horizon, so we can all look forward to zooming around Albion in Venom GTs and Camero ZL1s.
