With different gaming platforms emerging like the Xbox One X, Nintendo Switch and PlayStation, as well as long-awaited games, it’s not overstating to say that 2017 was the epic year for video games. But as the year passes by, it’s now time to look forward to the promising games for 2018.
From highly-anticipated series to entirely fresh productions, here’s a peek at what’s going to come for the different gaming platforms and consoles this year.
Jump like the Hulk beyond a futuristic neon city and bring out your fantasies of being a supercop by systematically taking down a chain of kingpins and crime bosses. A compelling multiplayer mode will let you do the skyscraper-smashing devastation through some cloud calculating alchemy.
Also, you’re free to choose for a more reasonable sense of action in the offline campaign or single-player mode.
This bizarre-looking action, role-playing game collaborates with an ancient gun-fu, Wushu martial arts, and lots of anthropomorphic monsters to encounter, all in the name of defending a vast, legendary kingdom.
This game focuses on crafting weapons and the ability to imbue your character with some mystic mutations, or robotic parts that will make you smash beasts in your unique way.
Bandai Namco is now joining a new chapter in its classic fighting sequels with the launching of Soulcalibur VI. Like Mitsurugi and Sophitia, Mainstays will unsurprisingly be part of the game, while a fresh mechanic of the Reversal Edge battle makes it possible to make a counterattack against your opponent if done in proper timing.
Also, like Bandai Namco’s other fighting series Tekken 7, the latest Soulcalibur will be in Unreal Engine 4 rendering, which must possess more detailed and smoother graphics.
God of War
It’s about five years since the last version of God of War was released and this year, with his son Atreus, Kratos will return with a vengeance. That father-and-son power will apparently be a critical part of the game, where in fact, trailers have shown that Kratos is teaching Atreus all the things about the cruel world they have.
The trailer also implies that Atreus may serve as a comrade when hunting beasts, or as the voice of the child can be heard warning his father for the possible incoming of enemies. The plot happens after the previous games, with Kratos being as a man in the kingdom of gods.
State of Decay 2
If there is one thing that The Walking Dead has taught us, it’s that producing bonds between the survivors and creating a community is the key to survive the zombie apocalypse. On the other hand, the State of Decay 2 adopts those concepts to join up to four players, granted that you all have to agree to work as one instead of killing one another for supplies.
To create your customizable campsite, you will have to scavenge on four wheels or foot, smashing the skulls of infinite zombies along the way.
However, if one of your comrades is unfortunate enough to get bitten by an undead, you will have to decide between treating them with a short supply of drugs or ending their misery lives with a bullet straight to the brain.
After 2017 which was the fantastic gaming year, you’re maybe wondering how this year will compare. However, if 2018’s schedule of releases is something to go by, we will surely be in for another excellent gaming year.
With many much-anticipated games set for release or already out this year, it is better for you to prepare your gaming platforms which are available on Deal Wiki and other tech sites online.
