E3 Post Apocalyptic Gaming News – The Top 15

Don't even think about sharing this article.

With E3 2016 ending just a few days ago (June 14-16), I’m listing the top post-apocalyptic games and news from the conference. Below you’ll find #11-15. To start at the top of the list with #1, click here.

NOTE: The post-apocalyptic genre is about the setting – and we’ve all got different tastes. That is why I’m defining it pretty broadly this time around. If it’s about the end of the world, survival, dystopia, zombies, or the genocide of the human race, then I considered it for the list.

The giants act all weird like that in the show too. As for the game, the mechanics actually look really interesting and fun. We hope it’s as fun as it looks.

14. Halo Wars 2

RTS on a console?!? All I can say is don’t knock it till you’ve tried it. Fans of the first installment have been raving about this sequel – which has been a long time coming. The original Halo Wars was released in 2009 and sold more than a million copies. As a fan of the RTS genre, and avid fan of the Halo series (heck, I even read the novels, which were amazing, btw) I look forward to giving this game a test drive.
