After the PC Gaming Show, we came to the Gamesradar + event hosted by E3 called Future Games Show.
This year, hosted by Laura Bailey (of The Last of Us 2 Fame) and Troy Baker (of almost everything famous) starts off with some pretty cute jokes between them before going on to world premieres for everyone.
The CG trailer starts off slow and ominously, with a character slowly sneaking up on a map before something escapes her.
The presented world premiere is a fresh take on instinct by Hashbane. The CG trailer starts off slowly and ominously, with a character slowly sneaking up on a map before something escapes her.
We are then processed through in-game images of dinosaurs and humans interacting with each other, mostly cat and mouse style. The instruction shows FPS gameplay, but it looks like the game is in third person as well, allowing you to switch between the two.
instinct is expected to be released in 2022.

Throughout the virtual showroom we also see several clues about Chernobylite, which seemed to invade various screens throughout the presentation here, something Troy and Laura have avoided discussing for now.
ESBC – Esport boxing club Ad
We then get Steel City Interactive showing off ESBC, Esports Boxing Club, featuring over 200 fighters, from contemporary fighters, female boxers, to legends such as Muhammed Ali.

Then a little trailer for a soul-like game called Older souls
Most of the footage is in 2D with minor animation, tracing the lore and history of the game. There is no real gameplay shown, but Older souls gets a release date of July 29, 2021.
We’re back to war with Darkflow Softwares Enlisted. Enlisted is designed to be a more historical take on WWII. The game has two modes, a single player mode where you fight against other players online in a more standard FPS style. The other is a team-based mode, where you can browse multiple members of your team seamlessly.
Moscow, Normandy, and Berlin are billed as campaigns, where you can upgrade your soldiers, gain special perks, and acquire new equipment, providing robust options for players. Despite this, Enlisted seeks to remain as historically accurate as possible, down to the type of clothing soldiers wear.
Enlisted is currently available in open beta and will be a cross-platform game with versions for PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series S | X. Use the code Enlistnow for a free bonus.

Ultimate sonic colors is a 2.5-D scroller that retains the speed and level design of classic Sonic games while adding some visual touches like fully 3D tracks to break up the action.
