Most expected games confirmed to show up at E3 2019
Apex Legend invaded the battle royale scene back in February when it made an incredible impression, shortly being in the center of attention, with even Fortnite taking a step back. However, after the enormous impact, Apex slowed down some dull first three-month content season and a few technical problems its developer, Respawn, is still working on solving.
Apex’s second content season will start with E3, and fans see another chance for the title. Players can expect at least an additional character, and a brand new gun, with rumors and leaks implying that numerous other changes will be implemented with this new season.
Borderlands 3 is among the most waited, also long-waited edition that many fans have been expected. The new Borderlands is a continued tradition of the series, allowing you to to use peculiar guns to collect even more weapons. As of today, there were only two of four new characters unveiled: Amarah the Siren and Zane the Operative. E3 1029 is a perfect moment to reveal the rest of the Vault Hunters and the various changes and details of the game.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2019

Control was one of the dazzling reveals at E3 2018. The game is impressive, with its complicated world, resembling fragments and pieces of Remedy’s earlier supernatural-tinged titles.

Control looks bizarre, abundant of unusual sights and unexpected bombshells. Its launch is a few months away, and it’s sure to be announced for the last time at E3 before its release.
