If there’s one thing gamers do, it’s get hyped about upcoming releases. So far, 2018 is shaping up to be a year for the ages. Here’s a look at the games that will blow you away in 2018.
Visceral’s Star Wars: Visceral Games is working on a new story-driven Star Wars penned by the writer of Uncharted 2. Need I say more?
Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night: Castlevania: Symphony of the Night is one of the best video games ever made. Bloodstained is a game in the same vein, made by the same director. There’s no reason for it to fail.
Spider-Man: Insomniac Games is known for colorful platformers like Ratchet & Clank and Sunset Overdrive. That team working on a Spider-Man game seems like a match made in heaven.
Skull and Bones: Man the canons, mateys, because we’re heading into online pirate battles in 2018, thanks to Ubisoft’s Skull & Bones.
Sea of Thieves: Another pirate game that takes a different approach is Sea of Thieves, a colorful online adventure that lets you and your friends sail the seas in search of booty.
A Way Out: From the makers of the underrated game Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons comes a co-op game about a pair of prisoners who decide to make their escape.
God of War: Kratos is no longer the angry madman he was in previous games. The new God of War has Kratos and his son traverse the realm of Norse gods.
Anthem: It’s an online shooter like Destiny, but it’s made by the people who brought you the original Mass Effect trilogy. ‘Nuff said.
Far Cry 5: The backdrop of this open-world shooter is Montana, a mountainous region inhabited by deadly wildlife and even more deadly cultists.
Red Dead Redemption 2: Rockstar Games doesn’t release many games, but when they do, those games are showstoppers. Red Dead Redemption 2 promises nothing less.
