We kicked off the first of four days of IGN Expo today, and we packed it with new game reveals, exclusive first-look gameplay, exclusive trailers, and interviews with the developers behind them.
If you missed anything, make sure to check out the list below for everything we showed off. There’s much more coming from IGN’s Summer of Gaming throughout June – here’s the Summer of Gaming full schedule. All month, we’re supporting some incredibly important causes – the World Health Organisation and The Bail Project – if you are able, help us support them too at donate.ign.com.
