Most anticipated games in 2018 release dates


Red Dead Redemption 2

Perhaps the worst-kept secret in all of gaming, Rockstar finally went public with Red Dead Redemption 2 in the fall of 2016. To assume the game will stay on schedule for a fall 2017 release could probably be labeled as optimistic, but we’re crossing our fingers that we’ll be able to play it before 2018.

Prey’s debut trailer wowed us at E3 2016, and now that we’ve seen some real-life gameplay we’re extremely anxious to see what this FPS reboot will provide.

Platform(s): PS4, PC

Xbox One,   Release WW : 5 May 2017
Release date: July 25, 2017


South Park: The Fractured But Whole

We loved the first South Park turn-based RPG for its amazing writing and self-awareness. It’s tough to expect anything less from the sequel.

The delayed South Park: The Fractured But Whole will at last launch on 17th October



Assassin’s Creed Origins

Platform(s): PS4, Xbox One, PC
Release date: October 27, 2017

If you thought Assassin’s Creed had grown a bit stale in recent years, you’re not alone – but after the Brotherhood took a year-long hiatus, Assassin’s Creed Origins looks like it has the goods to revitalize the long-running series. You play as Bayek, one of the earliest Assassins, undertaking secret missions in a gorgeous, sunny and shining rendition of ancient Egypt. Developed by much of the same team that made Black Flag, Origins does away with tired AC elements like sync towers and minimap bloat to refocus on giant vistas to explore and satisfying action RPG combat to master.


God of War

We’re not sure if the God of War reboot will hit in 2017, but we needed to mention it here just because of how great its E3 2016 debut was. The game has evolved to a third-person perspective and new narrative for Kratos, as it appears his son is now his battling companion.

Gran Turismo Sport


Platform(s): PS4
Release date: Fall 2017

Sony’s Gran Turismo series is a legend in the racing genre, but players itching for ultra-realistic driving simulations have a lot to choose from these days, with competitors like Forza, Driveclub, and Project CARS taking advantage of GT’s absence on modern consoles.


Nintendo Switch

Nintendo’s video premiere of the company’s brand-new console, the Switch, certainly left us with more questions than answers. But we won’t have to wait long to get acquainted with the hybrid console — it hits in March.

That Mario Switch game

With word that the new Zelda game won’t be a Switch launch title, it’s logical to assume that there might be a new Mario game debuting alongside the new console. The biggest hint: the Mario gameplay footage superimposed in the Switch’s video unveiling.

Need for Speed: Payback

Platform(s): PS4, Xbox One, PC
Release date: November 10, 2017

Take the over-the-top drama and lovable characters of the Fast and the Furious films, then sprinkle in plenty of slow-motion car crashes a la the beloved Burnout games. What you get is Need for Speed: Payback, an open-world racer with tons of cinematic flair mixed into its riveting chase scenes and breakneck getaways.


Call of Duty: WW2

Platform(s): PS4, Xbox One, PC
Release date: November 3, 2017

Another year, another Call of Duty – but after all the excitement for futuristic combat zones seems to be tapped out, Activision is finally taking COD back to World War 2. Call of Duty: WW2 puts you in the laced-up boots of two soldiers with the 1st Infantry Division, also known as “The Bloody First”, who famously led the invasion of Normandy on D-Day. Expect lots of grit and grime, incoming airstrikes, lumbering tanks, and brutal bludgeoning of Nazi skulls all seen from first-person.


Star Wars Battlefront 2

Platform(s): PS4, Xbox One, PC
Release date: November 17, 2017

The rebooted Star Wars Battlefront laid a fantastic foundation for an FPS that makes players feel like supporting troops (or iconic heroes and villains) within scenes from the films – but Star Wars Battlefront 2 sounds like it’ll be the real deal. On top of the expansive multiplayer conflicts – now with heroes pulled from all three film eras – this sequel includes a full-on single-player campaign, played from the perspective of Empire elite soldier Iden Versio. Also, space battles will be making their triumphant return, so you can zoom around blasting bogies in an X-Wing or TIE Fighter.



Platform(s): PS4, Xbox One, PC
Release date: November 2017

Vampyr is an action RPG which puts you in the shoes Dr. Reid, who’s recently been turned into a blood-sucking denizen of the night. It’s up to you to decide whether to kill enough people to become powerful beyond belief, or heal London’s citizens from the Spanish Flu and bring peace back to the city.


Days Gone

A 2017 release for Days Gone is likely some wishful thinking, but we can’t deny that we’re intrigued with this survival zombie apocalypse game.

release date has not yet been announced.


Detroit: Become Human

The latest narrative-heavy, player choice-driven game from David Cage and his team at Quantic Dream is upon the gaming world. Detroit’s story follows several playable characters in a world where androids walk among humans.

Crackdown 3

Platform(s): Xbox One, PC
Release date: November 7, 2017

In Crackdown 3 you’re a super-cop in an open-world city, using your powers to fight crime and smash the whole place up in the process. While there’s still a story campaign to tackle, the online co-op for up to four players is where it’s at, letting you and your Agency buddies tear up this futuristic metropolis in chaotic style. You’ll be leaping between buildings using your jumpjets in one moment, then raining down high-tech bazooka missiles onto any poor criminals the next. Unfortunately, it seems like the ambition for a completely destructible environment has been abandoned, but this should be a good ol’ open-world time regardless.


Call of Cthulhu

Platform(s): PS4, Xbox One, PC
Release date: TBC 2017

The influence of H.P. Lovecraft’s Cthulhu mythos creeps across the gaming landscape like the black tendrils of some otherworldly Elder God, so it’s about time a game used modern hardware to take those nightmarish, existentially terrifying themes head-on. Made in the same style as 2005’s Call of Cthulhu: Dark Corners of the Earth, this Call of Cthulhu reimagining is a first-person RPG that’s equal parts investigation and delirium.


Death Stranding

First debuted with a striking and bizarre trailer at E3 2016, Death Stranding continues to mystify audiences around the world. We don’t know much about the game’s plot, the game style or much of anything, but the fact that we’re getting a new game from Hideo Kojima is more than enough of a reason to be excited about this one.

Project Scorpio

Not to be outdone by the PS4 Pro, Microsoft has a new step-up console of its own that’s currently dubbed Project Scorpio. We don’t know too much about the new machine, save for the fact that its specs do seem to outpace the hardware of the PS4 Pro. We’ll have much more on Microsoft’s next Xbox as its release nears next holiday season.

end of 2017



Platform(s): Xbox One, PC
Release date: August 2, 2017

Not to be confused with a Toyota pickup truck, Tacoma is the next project from Fullbright, the studio that made serious waves with its debut game Gone Home. This, too, is a narrative-rich, combat-free exploration viewed from first-person – but instead of taking place in an Oregon home circa 1995, Tacoma unfolds aboard a vacant space station, where memories of the former inhabitants play out via augmented-reality recordings. Gone Home set a pretty high bar, but Tacoma’s eerily empty setting looks like it could be just as stirring.


Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice

Platform(s): PS4, PC
Release date: August 8, 2017

Developer Ninja Theory has a knack for crafting cult classic action games that only seem to be appreciated after their time: Heavenly Sword, Enslaved, DmC (don’t @ me). Hopefully Hellblade can break into the mainstream so that more players can appreciate the kinetic melee clashes and ridiculously lifelike face mocap Ninja Theory does best.


Sonic Mania

Platform(s): PS4, Xbox One, Switch, PC
Release date: August 15, 2017

Sonic Mania is the culmination of what fans have wanted from the blue hedgehog for years: a return to his spin-dashing, ring-collecting roots established during his 1990s glory days. This is an all-new sidescrolling crusade against Dr. Robotnik, done up with ravishing spritework that evokes Sonic CD with an extra layer of polish.


Agents of Mayhem

Platform(s): PS4, Xbox One, PC
Release date: August 15, 2017

When you hear the name Volition, you know to expect something over-the-top and hilarious. After all, these are the people who gave us the crass glory that is Saints Row.


Uncharted: The Lost Legacy

Platform(s): PS4
Release date: August 22, 2017

This isn’t a brand new Uncharted game, but its not an expansion either. In The Lost Legacy you play as Chloe who teams up with Nadine Ross (yeah, from A Thief’s End) to track down an ancient Indian artifact.


Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle

Platform(s): Switch
Release date: August 29, 2017

We didn’t know how badly we wanted an XCOM-style tactics game starring Mario and the Rabbids – until Ubisoft decided to show one off and immediately convinced us.


Yakuza Kiwami


Platform(s): PS4
Release date: August 29, 2017

If you haven’t enjoyed the Japanese nightlife and criminal underbelly of the Yakuza games yet, you’ve been missing out; fortunately, Yakuza Kiwami will be the perfect introduction to the long-running series. Whereas the also-great Yakuza 0 is a prequel to the first game, Yakuza Kiwami is a spruced-up remake of the original PS2 game that first introduced us to Kazuma Kiryu and his gangster affiliates.



Platform(s): PS4, PC
Release date: August 29, 2017

If you don’t know Absolver, just think of it as Dark Souls + Destiny + kung fu, full of fighters clad in ornate armor clashing in dodge-centric, beautifully animated hand-to-hand combat. The Dark Souls influences come through in the setting, as you wander around the scenic ruins of the Adal Empire, and the ever-increasing stakes of stamina-based offense, intermittent PvP bouts to break up the exploration, and the risk of losing XP gains if you die.


Destiny 2

Platform(s): PS4, Xbox One, PC
Release date: September 8, 2017

Destiny 2 hype is in full effect following the recent gameplay trailers and our own hands-on time with the game. Following a devastating attack on The City, all of your Guardian’s precious loot has been destroyed – oh, the humanity – but the Vanguard leaders you’ve looked to are still going strong, and seem ready to take the fight back to enemy forces new and old.


Divinity: Original Sin 2

Platform(s): PS4, Xbox One, PC
Release date: September 14, 2017

Anyone with a penchant for deep, story-driven RPGs viewed from the isometric angle like the PC adventures of old already knows and loves the first Divinity: Original Sin, which presents a fantasy world on a massive scale with support for two-player co-op play the entire way through.


Metroid: Samus Returns

Platform(s): 3DS
Release date: September 15, 2017

Nintendo sure kept us waiting – but at long last, we’re finally getting another (officially licensed) 2D Metroid adventure.


Dishonored: Death of the Outsider

Platform(s): PS4, Xbox One, PC
Release date: September 15, 2017

Dishonored doesn’t mess around when it comes to DLC – just look at how substantial the gameplay and lore additions were in the first game’s Knife of Dunwall and Brigmore Witches packs. Standalone expansion Dishonored: Death of the Outsider involves Daud (the main character from those very same DLC add-ons), but stars Billie Lurk (voiced by Rosario Dawson), Daud’s second-in-command turned crucial ally in Dishonored 2.


Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite

Platform(s): PS4, Xbox One, PC
Release date: September 19, 2017

The entire Marvel vs. Capcom series is a veritable fighting game hype factory, responsible for some of the flashiest combos, greatest upsets, and loudest screams ever witnessed by enraptured onlookers. At long last, the fourth entry is on the way with Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite, with a host of mechanics changes to the familiar tag-team brawls between all the Capcom stars and Marvel’s iconic heroes and villains in the Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite roster.


Pokken Tournament DX

Platform(s): Switch
Release date: September 22, 2017

This probably isn’t how most people envisioned Pokemon making its Nintendo Switch debut, but Pokken Tournament DX is a chance for this underappreciated Pokemon-themed fighting game to reach a bigger audience. If you never played the Wii U original, Pokken Tournament (from many of the same developers behind the Tekken series) is a 3D fighter featuring one-on-one bouts between a selection of playable Pokemon.


Middle-earth: Shadow of War

Platform(s): PS4, Xbox One, PC
Release date: October 10, 2017

The Tolkien’s Creed open-world action in Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor easily warranted a sequel – we just didn’t know when it was coming, until now. Middle-Earth: Shadow of War brings back the undying ranger Talion and his fused wraith Celebrimbor, who have forged a new Ring of Power despite those things always ending in tears.


The Evil Within 2

Platform(s): PS4, Xbox One, PC
Release date: October 13, 2017

Third-person survival horror nightmare The Evil Within was undoubtedly flawed, failing to capture the true terror of Shinji Mikami’s work on the Resident Evil series – but just because it had some rough edges, doesn’t mean it didn’t present some great ideas about reality-warping scares experienced inside the mind of killer.


Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus

Platform(s): PS4, Xbox One, PC
Release date: October 27, 2017

B.J. Blazkowicz and Indiana Jones have similar sentiments regarding Nazis: they really hate those guys. But B.J. definitely has the edge when it comes to the Nazi body count left in his wake – and even when he’s recovering from a coma and unable to stand,
