E3 News

Hello all!

It’s here, the moment you’ve all been waiting for: Gerj’s quick notes of E3 news!

In MMOland, a few things to cover:


Trion Worlds releases info on their joint project with SyFy, Defiance.  Defiance is a futuristic action MMO set on Earth where aliens have invaded.  The cool thing about this is not only is it an action MMO (it makes me think of Planetside), but it is made in conjunction with a TV show, and the two will be interrelated and share developing storylines.

Click here for more info and here for the E3 trailer



Star Wars: The Old Republic

I’m a huge Star Wars nerd, and I’m sure I’m not alone out there.  We’ve all heard the rumors over the past year or so about SW:TOR, but I’m reserving judgement until we get our hands on it.  It certainly looks pretty, so check it out!

News here

and the new E3 cinematic trailer is here.

Lord of the Rings Online

Turbine announced the new expansion pack, Rise if Isengard, the first expansion since the F2P model was adopted last fall.  Check out some info here and a trailer here


Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Online

This is a F2P FPS MMO based in the Ghost Recon world.  Not a lot of news, but the trailer from E3 is here

Dust 514

From CCP, the creators of EVE Online, a new single-server FPS MMO is coming.  It is set in the EVE universe, and it was announced yesterday that it will be a PS3 exclusive. I don’t know if they plan to port it to PC later on, but check out the trailer here

Of course, there is no World of Warcraft or Blizzard Entertainment news, as they save everything for Blizzcon.


For more E3 news, you can check out the official E3 site, and I found a cool little blog, E3 2011 Day 1 in pictures.  I’ll be back either later today or tomorrow morning with some more E3 news for you!
