Dishonored’s trailer is probably my favorite from E3 2012 for the choice of music alone.
If you’re getting a Half-Life 2 and BioShock vibe from that trailer: it’s warranted. The man behind Half-Life 2’s City 17’s aesthetic is working with Arkane Studios who worked with 2K Marin on BioShock 2’s design. With so many big names involved, it’s hard not be wonder how this will all turn out.
The second game I’d like to highlight is Star Wars 1313. Lucas Arts is behind this and it looks phenomenal. It’s currently being developed on high end PC hardware but it’s probably a safe bet that it’s coming to a next generation console in 2013 or beyond.
