E3 2012 PC game trailer roundup

By on June 5, 2012, 8:30 AM

With E3 well underway, dozens of fresh game trailers and demos have hit the Web. We've collected some of the most popular videos for upcoming PC releases, including Crysis 3, Far Cry 3, Splinter Cell: Blacklist, Borderlands 2 and more. Titles are ordered alphabetically and the launch dates are for North America.

Naturally, you're more than welcome to share links to any trailers you think are worth sharing, PC or otherwise. Notably missing from this PC-centric list is Halo 4, but you can watch that here. It goes without saying, but many of these videos are for games rated mature and thus are not safe for work (Far Cry 3 especially).

Ubisoft is providing its users with a map editor for Farcry3, allowing its users to create there own multiplayer maps, "you know those maps that activition likes to charge $ for" yeah you can make them for FREE, hell even replicate your favourite COD map in the Farcry universe. LOL

Unfortunately, except for Borderlands 2, nothing really tickles my fancy. Watchdogs, maybe.

Guest said:

Please get any Arma 3 material here as soon as it's available!

Recycle said:

Dead Space 3, SimCity, and Watch Dogs are on my must-buy list.

I added Arma 3's pre-E3 demo (released June 1). Feel free to make any additional recommendations.

Great Idea. Thanx Tech Spot.

Watchdogs looked quite amazing. Can't wait for that.

Star Wars 1313 would be a good title to add, it was revealed last night on Spike/Gametrailers. This new game is supposed to be a more mature and dark take on the SW universe and you'll play a bounty hunter in the criminal underworld. Looks like a pretty cool third-person action/shooter, but it's still early in production.

^the graphics look good, but the gameplay they showed was weak imo.

Metro Last Light should be on the list. It's the sequel to Metro 2033.

JasAce said:

Wow I haven't heard of Watchdogs until now. That looks EPIC to be honest! After Borderlands 2 and Hitman: Absolution AND now Watchdogs.... I'm pretty sure my wife is going to regret letting me build my new PC gaming rig lol.

Best roundup ever. Thanks for posting.

Guest said:

I'm sexually excited only just watching Assassin's creed III's trailer, I wonder what will happen if I watch all of these trailers? :D LOL

Guest said:

Did I ever tell you the definition of insanity?

Guest said:

No new video for Counter Strike: Global Offensive? The trailer they made a year ago doesn't represent how the game is now. Valve really is awesome though! August 21st, only $15 on Steam (PC and Mac), PSN and XBLA

Added Metro: Last Light but I don't see any new official videos for Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (Global Offensive and Valve Youtube channels). You're welcome to link a video.

Guest said:

I guess they haven't made a new video yet. Too bad..

big fan of the NFS series CANT WAIT!!

Two things I come away with here is I won't be getting two of my previously favorite games, the new Tombraider and the new Splinter Cell. They both have become something so entirely different (and not for the good) that as far as I'm concerned might shouldn't even be using the names anymore. Tombraider made me sick what they've done with Lara. They've turned her into a barbie doll for pre teens. She just is not Lara anymore (neither was Underworld but it's even worse now). As for Splinter Cell, I always knew if they got rid of Michael Ironside, I wouldn't play the game anymore. Bummer on both counts.
