The best E3 2018 trailers so far

E3 2018 is now underway and that means there’s a glut of exciting trailers coming your way. This is the show where some of the biggest names in gaming gather together to show off what they’ve got planned for the next few years and there’s no better way to do that than with a seriously impressive trailer. 

If you’re tired of trawling through the words and clicking through the pictures, the trailer is your friend, so on this page we’re gathering together all the most essential trailers from each E3 conference in one place for your enjoyment and convenience.

Keep checking back, we’ll be updating this page after every show with all the must-see trailers. 

Fallout 76

Fallout 76 really came to life at E3 2018 as we got an early look during Microsoft’s Xbox showcase on Sunday. The latest installment in the Fallout franchise takes place in West Virginia, and is a prequel to all the other Fallout games. It’s also four times as big as any other Fallout before it. The new E3 trailer below really sets the tone. 

Halo Infinite

Microsoft lifted the lid on Halo Infinite, or Halo 6 for those keeping track. The game will pick up after the conclusion of Halo 5: Guardians – which saw Cortana and the other ‘Created’ AI seize control of the galaxy. 

Forza Horizon 4

We got a real taste for Forza Horizon 4 at E3, and lots of details, too. The game is set in the UK, taking players down country roads, across hilly highlands and through city streets. The next Forza installment is out on October 2, so until then, get your fill with the announcement trailer below.

Crackdown 3

OK, this Microsoft exclusive may not be out until 2019, but we at least got to see some new in-game action during E3 2018. Crackdown 3 is a long time coming, so while this trailer gives us a new look at the game, it may not be enough to satisfy every waiting fan.

Kingdom Hearts 3

Why not bring one of the most popular animated movies of all time into your video game-verse? That had to be part of the discussion that led to Frozen being included in Kingdom Hearts 3. The game may not be out until January 29, 2019, but when KH3 releases, you may not be able to let it go.

Gears of War 5

Rousing a big cheer from the Xbox showcase crowd, we got confirmation of Gears of War 5 at E3 2018. A new trailer shows Kait Diaz, Marcus Fenix and the rest of the Gears crew. Locusts will again play a major role in the series when it releases sometime in 2019.

Cyberpunk 2077

Cyberpunk 2077 may be from the same developer as The Witcher 3, but it’s got some significant aesthetic differences, as revealed in the new trailer from E3 2018. It still looks to keep elements of the gameplay, themes and tone that we loved about Witcher 3, though. All in all, it looks like it’ll be one hell of a ride.


Finally, we’re getting a better look at BioWare’s brand new upcoming game Anthem with a brand new cinematic trailer. But we’re finding it doesn’t really look like the kind of BioWare we’ve come to know – no alien flirting or tough narrative choices here. What we are getting is a humanity trying desperately to survive by using “incredible Javelin exosuits.” We’re getting definite Destiny vibes here but whether or not that’s a bad thing is completely down to you. 


We knew it was going to appear but it’s always comforting to see a new FIFA trailer isn’t it? There’s game engine footage in this trailer and it’s looking impressive. But it’s the inclusion of the UEFA Champions League that has us seriously excited. It’s a big win for FIFA and its fans and the full game will be available from September 28.

Madden NFL 19

Another member of the EA Sports family, we would have been more shocked by the absence of a Madden NFL 19 trailer than the fact that it was present. The game will be released on August 10 but the truly big news is that it’s coming to PC. 

Unravel 2

When it was released in 2016, the original Unravel game was a visual delight. And we’re happy to see that it looks like its sequel will be exactly the same. The only thing better than seeing that we’re going to get more yarn-based adventures with interesting puzzles and a delightful co-op mode? That’d be that we can actually buy the game on Xbox One, PS4, and PC digital storefronts already. Oh, and there are Xbox One X enhancements which means all that cuteness is available in 4K.

NBA Live 19

You didn’t think we’d talk about FIFA and Madden and completely miss out NBA did you? Of course not! NBA Live will be released on September 7 this year and from what we can see from this trailer it’s going to be the most impressive release in the series yet. 

Battlefield V multiplayer

Battlefield’s single-player campaign may promise to be touching and emotional but its multiplayers mode looks like it could be utterly thrilling. This trailer gives us a good look at what we can expect from Battlefield V. We think it looks pretty wild but you can judge that for yourselves. Shall we all feign surprise about that battle royale mode reveal?
