Now that 2018 is here, let’s have a look at the five games I am looking forward to being released this year!
Honourable Mention: Kingdom Hearts III.
I’m making this one an honourable mention, because let’s face it, there is a really good chance that it will be delayed. Again. Please Square Enix, I need my Dinsey/Final Fantasy crossover fix!
5. Far Cry 5.
I have a special place in my heart for the Far Cry series. Yes, they are ridiculous and yes, they aren’t going to revolutionise the open world genre, but they are fun. Far Cry 5may be a bit controversial but this may be the game for you if want some crazy, violent escapism.
4. Red Dead Redemption 2.
Some of you may be wondering why Red Dead Redemption 2 is so low in my list, mainly because not a lot is known about it. All I really know is that it is a prequel to the 2010 game. Still, its a game about the Wild West, so I’ll be keeping an eye on it.
A game where you play as a vampire in 19th century London? Count me in! You play a doctor who is also a vampire, so you can imagine the moral dilemmas you will encounter. Vampyre was originally going to be released in 2017, hopefully the delay will allow the developers to improve the game before its release.
2. Detroit: Become Human.
Speaking of choices, here’s a game full of them! AN adventure game about androids struggling to find their place in the human world, I have a feeling this one may get philosophical. With quite a few player choices, Detroit: Become Human is a game that looks to have a lot of replayability.
1. Kingdom Come: Deliverance.
An open world RPG set in medieval Europe is just the game for me. In Kingdom Come: Deliverance, you play as Henry, a son of a blacksmith who ends up entangled in the civil war. This is the sort of RPG I love to play, and hopefully come February, I’ll be able to visit medieval Europe!
And there were my top five games, I’m looking forward to in 2018. Are there any games being released this year that you are excited about? Let me know in the comments!
