The only high tide on June 10 is that of the announcements: here's a handy recap of all those that were shown at the Summer Game Fest
In the end we managed to get to the doors of theE3 2021 all integers, and the Game Summer Fest it was a more than lavish appetizer: indeed, it seems more like a buffet of announcements, to the point that a recap as a digestive would now be useful. The show, so much wanted last year by Geoff keighley (Game Awards) in place of the Los Angeles fair, has finally arrived, also confirming many rumors we have talked about recently, including the photo of Kojima, Two-Point Campus and, yes, even Elden Ring. There really is a ton of things to talk about, so we'll put a handy list for you below.
All in one night (first of six)
The announcements here are certainly not lacking: we will try to go quickly, but please forgive us if every now and then we catch our breath with the recap given the enormity of news included in yesterday's Summer Game Fest (but they really should all be there).
