New, 5 comments

Activision is bringing three of its upcoming titles — Skylanders Swap Force, Call of Duty: Ghosts and Destiny — to E3 2013 next week, the company announced today.

Skylanders Swap Force, the latest installment in the Skylanders franchise, introduces "dynamic swapability," which Activision says will give players more layers of choice. Players will be able to swap the top and bottom halves of the Skylanders figures and use more than 32 new characters in a brand-new adventure. The title is in development for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, Wii U, Wii and Nintendo 3DS, and will launch in North America on Oct. 13 and Europe on Oct. 18.

Call of Duty: Ghosts was unveiled earlier this year. The game will use a new engine to power an all-new world with a new story and characters. The title will launch Nov. 5 for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and Windows PC. Xbox One and PlayStation 4 will launch at a later date.

Bungie's Destiny, unveiled earlier this year, will set players in a large persistent world in which they can team up and set out on adventures. Players are Guardians of the last city on Earth and will travel the solar system. The title currently has no release date and is being developed for the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 3, Xbox One and Xbox 360.

"This is obviously a big year - not just for Activision, but for the entire industry," said CEO Eric Hirshberg in a press statement. "There's a console transition coming and naturally, everyone wants to see what new possibilities that will unleash in the games. We remain laser focused on delivering the things we know our gamers care about most: great gameplay, immersive worlds, and cool innovations. And that's what our amazing lineup at E3 this year will deliver."
