MOST ANTICIPATING GAMES OF 2017 and 2018

We have already witnessed some of the great games in 2017 and a lot of new games are still to enter the gaming industry in this year and beyond which we are most excited about. We still have to find a lot more about games mentioned in this article even after the E3 and Gamescom 2017 are over.

List of most anticipating games which are set to come out in the gaming industry in 2017 and beyond…

1. Middle Earth: Shadow of War

Middle Earth - Most Anticipating Games

 

SHADOW OF WAR is a third person action-adventure game with role-playing elements set in an open world environment following from its predecessor, SHADOW OF MORDOR. SHADOW OF WAR continues the narrative from SHADOW OF MORDOR, following TAILON who is still infused with the spirit of the ELF LORD CELEMBRIMBOR. The player uses their combined abilities to complete various missions, typically aimed to disrupt the armies of SAURON.

The sequel will have an active role playing approach, creating a more personalized experience for each player. The stellar Nemesis system will be making a return, where ordinary orcs may develop into bitter rivals over the course of many battles, and new Nemesis Fortresses serve as these villain’s imposing domains. But no fear-you will have your own loyal army at your disposal to raid these strong holds-all good practice when you have the forces you need to take on SAURON himself. It is one of the most anticipated games by fans as well as critics after the success of SHADOW OF MORDOR.

RELEASE DATE: 10 OCTOBER, 2017.

PLATFORMS: XBOX ONE, PS4 and PC

 

2. DESTINY 2

DESTINY 2 MOST ANTICIPATED GAMES OF 2017

DESTINY 2 developed by BUNGIE in assistance with VICARIOUS VISIONS and HIGH MOON STUDIOS was officially announced in MARCH 2017. The game will have a “great cast of memorable, relatable characters” as well as a “cinematic storyline,” and is set to be more accessible for players who want a “more casual first-person experience.

Destiny 2 is an online-only multiplayer first-person shooter video game. The original Destiny has improved dramatically with expansions after a rocky start. So, hopefully, developer BUNGIE can build on that to produce a truly great sequel.

RELEASE DATE: 6 SEPTEMBER, 2017.

PLATFORMS: XBOX ONE, PC and PS4.

 

3. MARVEL vs CAPCOM: INFINITE

MOST ANTICIPATING GAMES OF 2017

The entire Marvel vs. Capcom series is a veritable fighting game hype factory. It is responsible for some of the flashiest combos, greatest upsets, and loudest screams ever witnessed by enraptured onlookers. It’s been five years since they last clashed. But Marvel and Capcom’s finest are at it again in Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite.

The three-fighter teams have been reined back to the simpler 2v2 akin to the original MVC. And assists have been removed entirely, replaced by character swaps mid-combo and unique buffs granted by the Infinity Gems. This game has also thrown Marvel’s Infinity Stones into the mix. I would be used as a new power-up mechanic to help encourage comebacks and more tactical play.

RELEASE DATE: 19 SEPTEMBER, 2017.

PLATFORMS: PC, PS4 and XBOX ONE.

 

4. PROJECT CARS 2

project cars 2 most anticipating games of 2017

In the genre dominated by Forza and Gran Turismo, Project Cars distinguishes itself by being progressive. The announcement of this game promised 170+ cars and 60+ tracks, including some newly scanned from real world courses. Other add on features include dynamic weather and online competitive leagues. But the real part is the grand support of both VR and 12K output though good luck building a PC beefy enough to output 4K to three monitors at once.

Now, Slightly Mad Studios are hoping that with its growing fan base. And by continuing the groundwork laid in the first game, Project Cars 2 will be an even stronger competitor to the long-standing rival simulators they admire.

RELEASE DATE: 22 September 2017.

PLATFORMS: PC, PS4 and XBOX ONE.

5. ASSASSIN’S CREED: ORIGINS

MOST ANTICIPATING GAMES

Source: Trusted Reviews

One of the most interesting gaming news that comes out of 2016 is the announcement that RED DEAD REDEMPTION 2 is official and will be arriving on consoles late in 2017. Hot rumors suggest we’ll be playing as John Marston’s son. And that forming a posse will be a big part of the game (as suggested by the early concept art).

The setting is towards the end of the Wild West era (we see steam trains and brick housing in the trailer), so this will likely be set after the last game. There’s very little information to share about Red Dead 2 so far.

RELEASE DATE: EARLY 2018.

PLATFORMS: XBOX ONE, PC and PS4.

 

7. CALL OF DUTY WW2

Call of Duty World War 2

WWII is the first title since the original Call of Duty to not feature health regeneration in the campaign.

Call of Duty WW2 looks set to take the series back to its roots with gritty, intense gunplay and a completely rethought multiplayer experience. The game will include a zombie’s cooperative game mode, similar to previous entries by Treyarch and Infinity Ward, with its own original storyline.

RELEASE DATE: 3 NOVEMBER, 2017.

It’s the launch will mean fans can play as additional characters. And there’s plenty of other new features and gameplay elements to enjoy too. Space battles will be making their triumphant return. So you can zoom around blasting bogies in an X-Wing or TIE Fighter.

Like its predecessor Star Wars Battlefront, the game is split into two eras: the Clone War. With battles taking place between the Galactic Republic and the Confederacy of Independent Systems, and the Galactic Civil War. The place where battles between the Rebel Alliance and Galactic Empire take place.

Unfortunately, E3 2016 revealed that CRACKDOWN 3 has been delayed until 2017, so we’ll have to wait a while longer before we can play it for ourselves. The focus on cloud-powered real time destruction was first demonstrated there, and Jones stated that Microsoft’s cloud computing technology provides 20x more power than playing the game on a single Xbox One console.

RELEASE DATE: MID 2018

PLATFORMS: XBOX ONE and PC.

 

11. DAYS GONE

 

MOST ANTICIPATING GAMES days GONE

During E3 2016 Sony announced DAYS GONE as one of the brand new titles. The open world action-adventure survival horror game looks utterly terrifying, with zombie-like creatures out to eat your brains. Worse yet, they’re speedy and there are thousands of them. As the game is
set in an open world environment, players are allowed to use multiple ways to complete objectives. Such as utilizing stealth for silent takedowns or taking the aggressive approach by using long and short ranged weapons.

A dynamic day-night cycle is featured in the game, which makes Freakers weak and slow during the daytime but fast and aggressive during the night. The game is being developed in Unreal Engine 4. We don’t know quite when Days Gone is coming out yet, but presumably, it’ll be some time in 2018.

RELEASE DATE: TBC 2018.

15. METAL GEAR SURVIVE

MOST ANTICIPATING GAMES

 

METAL GEAR SURVIVE was first announced on August 16, 2016, during the Gamescom 2016 event by KONAMI DIGITAL entertainment and published by KONAMI. The game’s development was first hinted at on December 17, 2015, when Konami started recruiting for a new Metal Gear development staff.

To be fair, Survive looks like a major departure for the franchise, as a co-op action survival game, and it’s understandable that fans are concerned. On the other hand, it also looks like it could be a lot of fun, and early hands-on reports have been very positive. We’re staying optimistic about this one.

RELEASE DATE: TBA 2017

PLATFORMS: PS4, PC and XBOX ONE.

 

16. THE LAST OF US PART II

 

ellie last of us

We are so excited about the prospect of revisiting Joel and Ellie that the game is making it onto this list regardless. The first game was big-budget gaming at its absolute best, pairing tense horror and action with believable, sincere character drama. We know very little else, other than the fact that Ellie is seriously pissed off about something in the reveal trailer.

Listening to fan theories, it suggests that Joel is actually dead it’s all Ellie’s imagination. But what’s real ,we don’t know for sure until the game releases in some time in a year or two.

RELEASE DATE: TBA

PLATFORMS: PS4

 

17. FAR CRY 5

PLATFORMS: PC, PS4 and XBOX ONE.

 

18. SPIDER MAN

 

MOST ANTICIPATING GAMES

This new SPIDER MAN game was revealed back in 2016 and it looks incredible. This superhero game should be an interesting departure for INSOMNIAC GAMES, a studio known for the RATCHEL and CLANK series.It isn’t tied to any specific movie or comic, but it will cover both PETER PARKER and SPIDEY aspects of the franchise.

Further, we have not much information about it.  ON any further information the article will be updated.

RELEASE DATE: TBA

PLATFORMS: PS4

19. CODE VEIN

 

MOST ANTICIPATING GAMES

CODE VEIN is action role-playing video game published by Bandai Namco Entertainment. The game is set in a future dystopia with a vampire thematic. The game was announced in APRIL, 2017. The game-play is expected to be based on vampiric lore including “gifts” from the consumption of blood, and other supernatural abilities.

The enemy designs are Anime Bloodborne to a tee, with slime waifs and knights clad in impossibly bulky armor, and it looks like you’ll be able to transform when it’s time to deal the finishing blow.

RELEASE DATE: TBA 2018

PLATFORMS: TBA

20. CYBERPUNK 2077

 

MOST ANTICIPATING GAMES

CYBERPUNK 2077 is a role-playing video game developed by CD Projekt RED and published by CD Projekt. Its cinematic teaser debuted all the way back in 2013, but it promises a Blade Runner-style dystopian future with Deus Ex-like RPG elements. Along with the single-player story, CYBERPUNK 2077 will include a multiplayer component. That core concept, as made by developers promising the world even larger than THE WITCHER 3’s, is more than enough to get us excited and increase our adrenaline rush.

RELEASE DATE: TBA

PLATFORMS: PC, PS4 and XBOX ONE.

21. THE AVENGERS PROJECT

 

MOST ANTICIPATING GAMES

This is another game we don’t know much about but this game has made us childishly excited about it.MARVEL and SQUARE ENIX have announced a partnership that will see the publisher work on multiple games with the superhero license, including at least one starring THE AVENGERS.

We also know that it’s being developed by CRYSTAL DYNAMICS and EIDOS MONTREAL, the teams responsible for the recent TOMB RAIDER and DeEUS EX games respectively, which is a pretty good sign and making us excited about the release of this game.

RELEASE DATE: TBA

PLATFORMS: TBA

22. DARKSIDERS 3

 

MOST ANTICIPATING GAMES

The game’s publisher went bankrupt, and its developer shut down, but you just can’t keep DARKSIDERS 3 down. The DARKSIDERS series is famous for essentially being a blood-soaked, bone-crunching take on The LEGEND of ZELDA’S open-world exploration. It also contains a flavor of DEVIL MAY CRY combat mixed in, full of ridiculously proportioned (but undoubtedly cool-looking) character designs by cult favorite comic artist JOE MADUREIRA.

DARKSIDERS 3’s leading lady Fury is more magic-focused than her compatriots and wields a spiky whip as her signature weapon. It’s all as over the top as you’d expect from DARKSIDERS, and promises to be plenty of fun.

RELEASE DATE: TBA 2018

PLATFORMS: PS4, PC, and XBOX ONE

So, this was a list of most anticipating games of upcoming 1 and a half year, If we miss any game Let us know…
