- The Last of Us – Part II
The blockbuster hit and launch title for PS4 is getting a sequel and is definitely one of the most anticipated games of 2018. Set 5 years after the events of the first game, we see Ellie all grown up and back with vengeance.The game is said to be centered around hate rather than love as the previous game did and the trailer, despite receiving some criticism has been one of the best in the upcoming games.
- Red Dead Redemption 2
Rockstar has listened to their fan base and is coming up with a prequel for the first game. Set in the western open-world environment, players will take on the role of Arthur Morgan, who is on the quest to make his mark on the American Frontier by working along with Van der Linde gang. The campaign is said to be lengthy and immersive, allowing players to explore and experience the old western world for which the first game was well known for.
- Far Cry 5
Ubisoft is setting foot on the American soil for the first time with Far Cry 5. Set in the town of Hope County in Montana, players are on the task to liberate the town from a cult of religious extremists. The more areas players liberate from the cult, more people are going to join the resistance for a fight against the cult. The world is said to be the biggest in the series for the players to explore and we have to wait and see what Ubisoft delivers, especially after the mixed reviews for the previous game.
- God of War
The reboot to the well-known PlayStation exclusive, God of War takes on a new path with what is seen till now, as more of an RPG rather than a hack n’ slash which all of the previous games were known for. However, this new approach has received a positive reaction from the gamers. Developers of the game want the players to care about Kratos, rather than just knowing him to be an unstoppable god slayer. Kratos is now old and wise and has a son whom he is training to be a survivor. The gameplay trailer looks promising and this is easily one of the most anticipated games of the year.
Anthem is an open world action-adventure game set to be released later this year. BioWare is the developers of this game, who are known for their Mass Effect series. The players take the role of a Freelancer, who are equipped with the exo-suits known as Javelins, giving them superhuman abilities and completing objectives with their friends online. The world in this game is truly spectacular and is an eye-candy to look at along with the amazing gameplay.
