E3 is upon us, meaning it’s a predictably quiet week for new releases. Publishers, developers, and PR companies are too busy showing off their upcoming games to usher a new release out the door.

However, E3 week can also be one filled with surprises. A continuing trend is to ‘shadow drop’ new titles during conferences in order to generate a buzz, so we may see something unexpected.

So, what was actually on the schedule of this week? Most notably, Metro Exodus and The Elder Scrolls Online get their next-gen upgrades with raytracing, improved shadows and lighting and other enhancements. Take a look at the trailers below.

Dead by Daylight also gets its anticipated Resident Evil DLC – who would have thought it, eh? This game really has gone strength to strength.

Then on Xbox One there’s the impressive looking helicopter shooter Heliborne, birdwatching board game Wingspan, and Galaxy Champions TV – a top-down shooter inspired by Smash TV.

The Sisters: Party of the Year – a mini-game party package based on a comic book series – and the cutesy rhythm action game Geminose: Pop Stars also head to Switch both digitally and at retail.
