Anticipated Games in 2018
2017 was a great year for new games and new gaming systems. The Nintendo Switch, the PS4 Pro and the Xbox One X were released last year and were all well-received. At this point, there will be no new consoles in 2018, but lots of games. Here are eight of the most anticipated games of 2018.
As the prequel to the 2010 ultra-successful Red Dead Redemption, this game promises more Wild West action and adventure. It was supposed to be released in 2017, but its creator, Rockstar Games, wanted it to be perfect. It will be available for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on October 26.
In this new chapter of Kratos’ quest, the game deals with the gods and monsters of Norse mythology. Kratos is also tasked with mentoring and protected his young son, Atreus. Fans look forward to the new main weapon: the lightning axe. This PlayStation 4 game is set to release on April 20.
The premise of Far Cry 5 is controversial because it features a Christian extremist group in rural Montana, USA as the main enemy. Your job is to arrest the leader, Father Joseph, of the cult-like group called Project at Eden’s Gate. Set to release March 27, this Ubisoft game is packed with lots of action, new weapons and gadgets, and exciting open-world adventure.
It’s been 13 years since Kingdom Hearts II was released. There have been numerous handheld and mobile versions, but fans are hopeful the new game will come out this year. In Kingdom Hearts III, the worlds and characters of Toy Story, Monsters Inc., and Big Hero 6 are featured. The release date is unconfirmed.
Set to release May 25 for the PS4, this choose-your-own-adventure game is set in a world where oppressed androids work towards revolting against humans. It also deals with emotional themes like suicide, abuse and freedom. There are various paths to take in this game, so each player’s experience will differ.
Although the release date has yet to be confirmed, there is lots of hype for this game. This is mainly because the creators, Insomniac Games, are known for creating entertaining games. The trailers show excitement and fast action. It will be available for the PlayStation 4.
In this post-apocalyptic open-world game, gamers play as Deacon (Sam Witwer) as he survives in a world full of “Freakers”. While they resemble zombies, the “Freakers” are living infected humans who desire human flesh. They also chase you in massive groups, leaving you one option: RUN.
This is the follow-up to the popular 2015 Xbox One game Ori and the Blind Forest. With its beautiful, hand-drawn graphics, emotional music, and most-likely heart-breaking stories, this game is expected to resonate with players again. The release date is still unconfirmed.
