There are so many games up for release this year, here are my top 5 I’m looking forward to, starting with the one I’m looking forward to most.
Spiderman- Due for release September 7th, for PS4
Since I can remember I’ve loved Spiderman, we grew up with him on the big screens and the games created for the Superhero were amazing, I’ve had hours of fun playing the Spiderman games and I seriously can’t wait to play this one. It’s going to be open world and doesn’t follow a comic or movie, this means Insomniac have been able to get really creative with this game. Based on what I’ve read about the game it’s going to be following a Peter Parker who has had his powers for a few years now, so hopefully there won’t be another origin story to sit through. You will be battling some serious bad guys in this one like the Kingpin, Mr Negative and The Vulture, this game is set up to be massive and I seriously can’t wait to get a hold of it!!
Shadow of the Tomb Raider- Due for release September 14th, for Xbox, PC and PS4
I have played most Tomb Raider games and they have always been really good but the Square Enix ones I’ve played recently have been sublime the graphics and gameplay are crisp and beautiful and the storyline is perfect. The Shadow of The Tomb Raider is set to be the end of the trilogy of games that Square Enix have created since the origins game they initially brought out. In this game we will follow Lara in deep in the South American jungle while she is still being tracked and ambushed by Trinity (the bad guys), it’s set to be another epic adventure full of fighting, climbing and exploring and I myself can’t wait to see what Lara is up to next.
Spyro Reignited Trilogy- Due for release September 21st, for PS4 and Xbox
Like a lot of gamers from my generation we grew up playing the likes of Crash Bandicoot and Spyro, and like Crash, Spyro is finally getting a reboot and its set to be epic. It will be a direct remaster of the trilogy we would have played all those years ago but the graphics will be stunning and Spyro will look a bit more like a dragon rather than a pixelated one.
Assassins Creed Oddessy- Due for release October 5th, for PS4, Xbox and PC
As I have mentioned in a previous post I love the Assassins Creed games ever since the first one following Altair I have been hooked, the storylines are always captivating and intertwining and all in all its just a great well made and thought out game series. Odessy is set in Ancient Greece Circa 431 B.C, you will have the choice of playing as the female character Kassandra or the male Alexios which I think is a great addition as they touched on it briefly in Origins with Bayek’s wife and it’s a great thing to add with so many female gamers out there. The main story is one of redemption after you were cast out of Sparta as a child, during the game during cutscenes you will be able to choose answers to dialogue which will alter the ending you get on the game, and with naval exploration and warfare set to make a come back this came is looking to be one of the epic releases for this year.
