UPDATE: You can see the new trailer after the jump!

In today's E3 Press Conference, EA announced Dragon Age: Inquisition, the third game in BioWare's famous RPG series. The game is set in an open, interactive world that responds to your choices and decisions. Murrigan and other characters will also return.

Today, during Electronic Arts's E3 2013 press conference, PopCap, the studio behind the hit tower defense series Plants Vs. Zombies, announced a sequel to their game Peggle, Peggle 2.

For those unaware, Peggle is a casual puzzle game available on several different platforms, including Xbox Live Arcade, PlayStation Network, Nintendo DS, iPhone and iPod, PC, and other venues.

Watch Dogs was unveiled by Ubisoft at E3 last year, and the game has snowballed quite a bit since then. The title is one of the most popular topics on the web, and one of the most anticipated experiences of the year.

Ubisoft loves their CG trailers, with new Assassin's Creed ones becoming an annual tradition. However, the publisher has put together a fancy new trailer for Watch Dogs for viewing at their press conference. It will drop a bomb.

Unfortunately for Ubisoft, the trailer leaked. Good for us though!

Have a look into the world of Watch Dogs after the jump.

UPDATED: The trailer shown at Microsoft's conference is now available. Take a look.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt has been announced for Xbox One by CD Projekt Red. The game is also coming to PlayStation 4 and PC.

The new entry in the series feels "native to next-gen platforms," with fantastic graphics and new technology integration. The game features an expansive open world with very, very fast travel. New tactical combat is also being implemented into the series. Witcher 3 on Xbox One also features exclusive SmartGlass integration.

Wild Hunt is being advertised as the "final installment." This could mean the end of our protagonist's story, or the conclusion of the entire franchise. Either way, it's been one hell of a ride.

The game arrives sometime next year.

It starts at 3PM CST. Can EA restore faith in its consumers?

The Lego series has gone from Hogwarts to Gotham to Middle-earth. Now, Traveler's Tales is taking the series to the Marvel universe with Lego Marvel Super Heroes. The game was unveiled by Game Informer a couple months back, and now it's almost here.

The best thing about Lego Marvel Super Heroes is that all licenses are available. That means you can get the Avengers fighting next to the X-Men and Fantastic Four. Spider-Man gets to show up too! This is shaping up to be a love letter to Marvel fans everywhere!

Lego Marvel Super Heroes is coming to Wii U, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Nintendo DS, Nintendo 3DS, PlayStation Vita, and PC this fall.

The Electronic Entertainment Expo begins tomorrow! Well, technically it doesn't start until Tuesday, but four big companies are holding press conferences tomorrow to unveil their plans for the next year. Microsoft, Electronic Arts, Sony, and Ubisoft will square off one after another. Of course, the coverage doesn't stop after those four! On Tuesday, Nintendo is airing a Nintendo Direct to coincide with the Expo! After the hour-long pseudo-conference, the Big N is releasing a series of interviews and videos throughout the day.

The show floor also opens on Tuesday, and our very own Managing Editor Colin McIsaac will be present. Mr. McIsaac will be playing demos and writing down his impressions in exclusive previews. You can see his E3 plans in more detail right here.

Of course more news will be flooding our data banks throughout the entire week, but those are the main events. Now, what time can you watch them? Where can you view the news unfold live? The E3 schedule is after the jump.

Proteus Review

June 09 2013 by Barry Herbers

The animal I followed thrust its body off the ground, hopping consistently as I stepped closer to it. Then there were two of the creatures, both springing off the ground to avoid me. With each jump came a beautiful sound, and as I followed them, the alternating bounds made a wonderful song. Plain-and-simple, that’s Proteus.

Proteus contains no cut-scenes, no dialogue, no heads-up-display, no lose state, no objective indicators and—for that matter—no determined objectives at all. As far as game play is concerned, all you do is walk around the game's island in first-person, with your only motivation being to discover.

Read on for the full review.

Plants Vs. Zombies is a nice and colorful little tower defense game available on a plethora of different online stores as well as a few other venues. But apparently the franchise is going to be getting a shooter title, with a name similar to that of Modern Warfare none the less. Promotional material for Plants Vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare has been showing up at the Los Angeles convention center which will be holding E3 2013.

Kotaku had a source claim to them that a mystery project from PopCap, the developer of Plants Vs. Zombies, was going to be a "cartoony, mechanically-novel and possibly multiplayer-oriented 3D action game for consoles," and since then has been informed that EA's Black Box Studios was working on a Plants Vs. Zombies console title "in the vein of Team Fortress 2."

Adding further evidence to this story is that, as pictured to the left, PopCap has been posting parody images of various shooters with Plants Vs. Zombies makeovers onto their Facebook page.

Add it all up and you get "Plants Vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare, a comical shooter similar to Valve's Team Fortress 2." Now, who besides me is excited at that prospect?

Just days ago, Lionhead Studios announced Fable Anniversary, an HD remastering of Fable: The Lost Chapters, which was in-and-of-itself a rechristening of the first entry in the Fable franchise. However, unlike Fable: The Lost Chapters, Fable Anniversary is not currently having a PC version developed to coincide with its release on Microsoft's current game console, in this case Xbox 360. While this announcement does not rule out the possibility for a future PC release, if it does happen, it likely won't be released simultaneously with the Xbox 360 version.

"We have also heard lots of players asking about a PC version and all we can say is right now is that we’re only developing this for Xbox 360. We’re not ruling out a PC version, however nothing is in development at this time." -- Lionhead.com

Splinter Cell: Blacklist is the sixth entry in the Splinter Cell series. Announced at E3 last year, the game is gearing up for another Expo before its release on August 20th in North America.

To get bodies ready for the conference, Ubisoft has unveiled the Inauguration trailer of the game. We get a look at all the presidents that have governed the United States of America, paralleling Sam Fisher's objectives on the battlefield. It's up to the spy to protect the country by hunting down terrorists across the globe.

Take a look at the trailer after the jump.

Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Blacklist releases on Wii U, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC on August 20th in North America, August 23rd in Europe, and August 22nd in Australia.

Dying Light was announced by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment a few weeks ago. The game is being developed by Techland. The gameplay involves a free-running parkour focus in a zombie-infested Rio de Janeiro. A sandbox-style overworld and upgradeable weapons add more to the mix, with a (supposedly) amazing day-and-night system running throughout the game.

With upgradeable weapons and zombies mixed with parkour, Dying Light seems like a cross between Mirror's Edge and Dead Island, but it sets itself apart in this new trailer. It's very dark, yet you can sense the freedom of the world.

The CG E3 trailer can be found after the jump.

Dying Light comes out on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One in 2014.

Deep Silver is publishing the new Saints Row game, and boy does it look crazy. The latest trailer has been unveiled to correspond with the big Electronic Entertainment Expo, and it is insane.

The President of the United States of America will fight evil in the nude with brand new superpowers. The most epic, dramatic Saints Row yet will star Benjamin "Motherfucking" King, the President, Pierce Washington, Kinzie Kensington, Shaundi, Shaundi (that's right, they went there), Asha Odekar, and a new star: Keith David, as Keith David.

To see the epic, gritty, hilarious trailer hit the jump.

Saints Row IV is coming to PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC on August 20th in North America, August 22nd in Australia, and August 23rd in Europe.

The Nazis beat everyone to the bomb in this alternate universe. Wolfenstein: The New Order takes place in a world different from the one we know. The Third Reich has conquered the planet in this entry, including powerful metropolises such as New York City and London. The year is 1960, and the only man freedom can rely on is B.J. Blazkowicz.

This is one fantastic setting for the revived franchise. It's frightening to see the Swastika covering Washington D.C., yet darkly humorous. The depiction of Nazis on Abbey Road is a chuckle-worthy parody on the Beatles, yet it also creates the dark atmosphere of the game. It's one helluva exposition, and I can't wait to see more.

Ubisoft, the French publisher behind the upcoming Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag and Rayman Legends, launched a game last generation for PlayStation 2, Xbox, GameCube, and PC called Beyond Good & Evil. While met with a lot of praise from those who played it, it never really caught on as a "big" title. However, it did manage to accrue a cult following in the years following its release, eventually receiving an HD port on Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network in 2011. Somewhere along the line, a sequel to Beyond Good & Evil was announced. Since then, fans of the original have eagerly awaited news regarding a Beyond Good & Evil 2, which has unfortunately been scarce to non-existent.

However, a recent picture posted to Ubisoft's Facebook page may be the glimmer of hope Beyond Good & Evil fans have been waiting for. Featuring a quote from the in-game character Pey'j, who looks like a humanoid boar, the picture was posted on May 31st with a few tell tale words teasing the potential for Beyond Good & Evil 2's re-entry into the spotlight:

"We’re a bit busy prepping for E3. Time to call in some reinforcements. (Points if you remember this classic character!)"

Head past the jump to see the pig-picture in question, and tell us what you think about the chance of seeing a Beyond Good & Evil sequel at E3 2013!
