Sunday kicks off the biggest week of the year for gamers: the Electronics Entertainment Expo (E3) in Los Angeles, where publishers unveil hit games from "Fallout 4" to the next installment in the "Halo" franchise. Some games are confirmed to be unveiled next week -- others are just rumor.
But in any case, gamers can expect tons to choose from as Sony, Microsoft, Ubisoft and many others show off their wares. Here's a look at 11 of the most anticipated games for E3 2015:
“Fallout 4” (PC, PS4, Xbox One)
Developer: Bethesda Softworks
Last week, Bethesda Softworks teased its anticipated sequel to “Fallout 3” and “Fallout: New Vegas,” which takes players to the world of post-apocalyptic Boston. At E3 Bethesda is expected to shed more details about “Fallout 4” during its press conference on June 14.
“Star Wars Battlefront” (PC, PS4, Xbox One)
Developer: EA DICE
The Empire or Rebel Alliance: take your pick. EA DICE’s “Star Wars Battlefront” puts players in the middle of the “Star Wars” battlefield, shooting blasters, flying X-Wings and playing as Darth Vader and Boba Fett. EA teased the game in April but it’s expected to reveal more about it at E3 next week.
“Call of Duty: Black Ops 3” (PC, PS4, Xbox One)
Another year brings another installment of “Call of Duty.” This time, Treyarch’s first-person shooter puts players in control of a super soldier in a dystopian future, where military robotics dominate the battlefield. “Call of Duty: Black Ops 3” won’t be released until November, but Activision is likely to showcase some gameplay during E3.
“Halo 5: Guardians” (Xbox One)
Developer: 343 Industries
Microsoft is expected to pull the wraps of its latest installment to the “Halo” franchise, two years after it announced the start of the project. Players that purchased “Halo: The Master Chief Collection” got a sneak peak to the “Halo 5” multiplayer beta test in December. But more details are likely to be revealed during Microsoft’s E3 press conference on Monday. “Halo 5” will be officially released on October 27.
“No Man’s Sky” (PS4, PC)
Developer: Hello Games
Hello Games’ space adventure game stole the show at E3 2013 with its procedurally generated game universe. But since then few details have been revealed about “No Man Sky.” Sony’s blog doesn’t have the game listed as part of its E3 booth lineup. But considering that it is slated for a 2015 release, it’s possible that players could hear more about it during Sony’s press conference on Monday.
“Rise of the Tomb Raider” (Xbox One, Xbox 360)
Developer: Crystal Dynamics
The next installment to the “Tomb Raider” picks up from the events of the last game, bringing Lara Croft from the supernatural remote island of Yamatai to the wintry setting of Siberia in search of a lost mythical city. Gamers are likely to hear more about “Rise of the Tomb Raider” either during Microsoft’s press conference on Monday and Square Enix’s conference on Tuesday.
“Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End” (PS4)
Developer: Naughty Dog
Nathan Drake is coming out of retirement in the latest installment to the “Uncharted,” which sends him in search of a lost pirate colony and its pirate treasure. Officially, Naughty Dog has pushed the “Uncharted 4” release to Spring 2016. But it’s possible that it could showcase the progress of the game during E3.
“Assassin’s Creed Syndicate” (PS4, Xbox One , PC)
Developer: Ubisoft Quebec
The next installment to “Assassin’s Creed” leaves the streets of Paris during the French Revolution for Victorian London at the tail end of the Industrial Revolution. Ubisoft announced “Assassin’s Creed Syndicate” in May and is expected to show off more details about the game during its press conference on Monday.
“Ratchet and Clank” (PS4)
Developer: Insomniac Games
The reimagining of Insomniac Games’ platformer won’t hit store shelves until 2016. But “Ratchet and Clank” will at least be on the show floor of E3, according to the Sony PlayStation blog. In addition to getting a video game reboot, the game will launch alongside its own movie, which premieres Spring 2016.
"Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain" (PC, PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360)
Developer: Kojima Productions
In the latest installment to the “Metal Gear Solid” stealth franchise, players take control of Venom Snake, who ventures to Afghanistan in 1984 in search of revenge on the people who nearly killed him in “Metal Gear Solid 5: Ground Zeroes.”
“Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain” is expected to launch in September. But it’s unknown if its creator, Hideo Kojima, will be involved in future installments to the series as rumors indicate he may be departing from Konami at the end of the year, according to Eurogamer.
“Destiny” (PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360)
Players have been chasing after Xur’s inventory and the Ghallahorn rocket launcher for nearly a year in “Destiny.” But even after all those hours of gameplay, that’s only scratching the surface for Bungie’s first-person shooter, which is expected to spawn a sequel by 2017 and a couple more over a decade.
Bungie has kept quiet about what it will unveil about “Destiny” at E3, but it’s highly likely they’ll formally unveil the game’s next downloadable content (DLC) expansion, “The Taken King,” which was leaked on Tuesday.
