1. No Man's Sky
No Man's Sky is an upcoming adventure survival video game developed and published by the indie studio Hello Games. It is due for release in August on both the PC and PS4.
No Man's Sky's is a huge open universe first person game based on exploration, survival, combat and trading. The entire universe is procedurally generated which means the game can fit in over 18 quintillion (1.8×1019) planets many with their own set of flora and fauna.
It is possibly the most ambitious and unique game on the list and I can’t wait. Though I just hope it can live up to the expectations.
2. Deus Ex: Mankind Divided
Deus Ex was one of my favourite games of my youth and the new game, Deus Ex: Human Revolution that was released back in 2011 far exceeded any expectations I could have for the game. It was fantastic (even if the boss fights were a let-down).
So it is no wonder that I am excited about the next Deus Ex, Mankind Divided. Release has already been delayed, but it should be out in August 2016 for PC, Xbox One, and PS4.
Set two years after Human Revolution, Mankind Divided features the return of Adam Jensen, with new technology and body augmentations. It is played from the first-person perspective, with a third-person perspective cover system.
It has been 6 years since the release of Mafia 2 and it is another game I have fond memories of. The Mafia series is an action-adventure video game played in third person. The 3rd game is set in 1968 in the city of New Bordeaux, a fictional recreation of New Orleans. The story revolves around Lincoln Clay, an orphan and a Vietnam War veteran, who is on a quest to build a new crime organization to confront the Italian mob.
It will be release in October for the big 3 platforms.
One more game I have an unconditional love for from my childhood is Civilization. All its sequels have been excellent and well received by critics.
If you are not aware it is a turn-based strategy, cantered on building a civilization on a macro-scale from prehistory up to the near future. It is one of the best games out there to lose hundreds of hours of spare time on and generally doesn’t need the absolute top spec PC to run it well!
It is due for release this October.
I have gone off FPS games over the years, I never really liked the story modes, and while multi-player is fun, I always found that you needed to sink a lot of time into it to avoid being killed constantly.
Battlefield 1 could be my first FPS purchase in several years, the trailer looks great, and the reaction on the internet compared to the new Call of Duty released this year is hilarious. COD is getting serious beating online. Let’s just hope Battlefield lives up to the hype though.
At the moment the game trailer is the most liked trailer on YouTube. The game is due to be release on all 3 platforms in October.
I think Titalfall as the last FPS I bought, and admittedly I didn’t really play it that much. What I did play was fun though and the trailer to Titanfall 2 does look great.
Release October on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Microsoft Windows
Dishonored was a great stealth action-game that I didn’t really expect much from. The concept, visuals and gameplay were all great.
You can play as either Kaldwin or as Corvo Attano (the protagonist from the previous game). Players can choose whether to play stealthily or not, and can finish the game without killing.
It is released on all current gen platforms in November.
Watch Dogs 2
Watch Dogs was slightly disappointing but I still enjoyed it. An open world action-adventure third-person shooter video game ticks a lot of boxes for me and the hacking element was a great twist. It was a fun game but didn’t quite live up to the hype, and what’s worse, plagued with bugs when released.
Hopefully Watch Dogs 2 will learn from its processors mistakes and expand on some of the fun hacking elements.
It will be released November 15 on all 3 platforms.
