Now that E3 2014 is drawing to a close, it’s time to take a breath and revel in all the amazing games that were shown off during the three days. While day one was all about huge press conferences from all the big companies, and day two was about getting the media closer to those companies, day three was about opening up the floor and letting gamers and journalists walk around to discover more about all the games on show.
Like the last two days, this round-up won’t just look at what all was discussed on day three of E3 2014 but also some games that I missed out on in the past round-ups.
Civilization goes far beyond Planet Earth
After basically letting you conquer the world in every Civilization game, the next installment will begin with you blasting into space to search for a new planet to conquer.

Every time that CDProjekt has shown off its upcoming open-world action RPG, it has left us terribly impressed. These last two long gameplay videos have again managed to do so, therefore, check them out:
A PS4 exclusive, Bloodborne is being developed by From Software, the studio behind Dark Souls II and is considered to be spiritual successor to those games. The game looks as gloomy and thick with atmosphere as the Dark Souls games and seems to have taken a similar shining to horror. Although we still haven’t seen a gameplay video, From Software has revealed that the game will take place in a gothic universe (think Victorian London) and will feature both melee weapons and short-range firearms.
Watch the cinematic trailer of Bloodborne below:
