The announcement of a new game at E3 is great and everything, but their cross-platform releases are usually 12 to 18 months away. As such, deeper dives into the gameplay of games debuting this year can often be more interesting. That was certainly the case for E3 2017, as it helped Assassin's Creed Origins win over fans that were less than enamoured with previous editions, along with helping Sony edge Microsoft in the exclusive games category.
