I know a lot of people that have already created a chart about the games they want to play before this year runs out, if you’re one of them then you’ve come to the right place because am gonna help you with that.
In light of that, we’ve put together this little guide that will point out the most unmissable titles coming this year. Whether you’re playing on PC, PS4, Xbox One or Nintendo Switch, you’ll find something in this list.
Release dates are an increasingly difficult thing to pin down so not all of these games have a solid release date just yet. All we know is they’re slotted in for some point in 2018.
1. Monster Hunter: World
Monster Hunter is a franchise that’s been going for a long time but for the first time in seven years we’re seeing it released on consoles. A global release that unties its fanbases in all markets, this is a that will appeal to newcomers and veteran players alike.
2. Far Cry 5
Far Cry 5 has caused some controversy before it’s even been released thanks to its close-to-home setting of Montana, America. When the small town of Hope County is taken over by a violent doomsday cult known as Project at Eden’s Gate, it’ll be up to you the player to become the new Deputy Sheriff and take them out. I so would play this myself.
3. Sea of Thieves
It’s been a while since we’ve seen something big and new from development studio Rare and we really can’t wait to dive back into a charming world with a distinct sense of humor.
4. God of War
God of War franchise is returning and this time it’s moving away from the Greek myths to the Norse and turning the legendary lone wolf Kratos into something of a father figure. When it’s released, this revamped God of War will have more of a focus on narrative than anything we’ve seen from the series but the hack and slash god fighting will still remain.
5. Crackdown 3
It was supposed to be one of the key launch titles for the Xbox One X in November 2017 but Crackdown 3 will now be a big 2018 exclusive for the console. The main selling point of the Crackdown franchise is destruction and in this game’s online multiplayer mode every part of the game’s city is open to destruction thanks to a cloud-based physics calculations system.
6. Red Dead Redemption 2
Jumping back into the Wild West, this is the third Red Dead game but the first Rockstar game created from the ground up for the latest generation of consoles.
We can’t wait to meet the brand new protagonist Arthur Morgan and rob and pillage our way across the wide open American heartland.
7. Days Gone
Though we can’t help but feel that zombie games have been somewhat done to death, we do have some hope that a good PlayStation exclusive could revive the genre.
C’mon you can’t seriously be leaving without sharing this post, its not fair.
