E3 2006 Preview: The hot games list

Command & Conquer 3 and Crysis

Command & Conquer 3 (PC)

Announced just before E3 2006, C&C 3 is in development in Los Angeles and should be making a strong showing in its home town. "We're building a next generation Command & Conquer game that is true to the spirit of this classic franchise, but is updated with state-of-the-art visuals, added strategic depth, and gameplay innovations that will move the genre forward," says Executive Producer Mike Verdu.

We don't doubt it, but with specifics beyond this vague we're looking forward to seeing what they can come up with during the week.

Crysis (PC)

Crysis is a PC sci-fi first-person shooter from the award-winning developer Crytek, the chaps behind Far Cry. The story goes along the lines of asteroid hits North Korea, Aliens pop out, North Korea and the World fight said aliens. Really, where they get such innovative scripts we'll never know, but hopefully the gameplay will be more inspiring.

With the CryEngine 2 in toe it should do that, across a variety of land, sea and air vehicles including trucks, tanks, boats and helicopters. One feature we're looking forward to seeing in action is the real-time armor and weapons customization, which will allow you to adapt to circumstances on the fly.
