Every year that comes, people say is also going to be the biggest ever when it comes to new video games. With the likes of a new Witcher installment, a new one for Uncharted and Halo as well, maybe they’re right when they say this about 2015.
The Witcher 3: The Wild Hunt
The final (well, not really) chapter of the trials and adventures of Geralt of Rivia trying to make sense of his lost memories. Fighting monsters, a spectral horde known as The Wild Hunt and meeting Ciri again. This time it’s a completely Open World, and should be a lot bigger than anything we’ve seen from CD Projekt RED. It comes out on February 24.
Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End
Not a lot to go on, but it’s probably going to involve the jungles of Madagascar, with Nathan Drake being closer to death than ever. Who knows, maybe the name suggests it is the last time for him?
Batman: Arkham Knight
The final chapter in Rocksteady’s telling of Batman, which takes place a year late in Bruce Wayne’s life after the events of Arkham City. It also has an original villain (Arkham Knight)
Halo 5: Guardians
A new chapter in Master Chief’s life. That’s about all we know, but the closer we get to the release (late 2015) we’ll know more about this mysterious game.
Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain
Serving as a continuation to the events of Ground Zeroes, Sanke goes to Africa and Afghanistan during the Soviet war looking for revenge. It’ll be the first open-world scenario of Kojima’s never ending tale. It comes with the option of air lifting goats!
Mortal Kombat X
The first new-gen entry for the fighting series with some new characters along with the classic and better known ones.
Dead Island 2
Taking zombies out never goes out of fashion. This game comes with a more cartoon-like look, and will probably set on the coastline of California, although Yager Development aren’t allowing a lot of details to leak out.
The Order: 1886
The first console game by Ready at Dawn will only be out on the PS4, and is an alternative telling of the late 19th century in London, as a group of knights try to keep the city and the world safe from half-animal, half-human monsters.
Homefront: The Revolution
The game takes place in Open-World Philadelphia, four years after the unified Korean republic invasion to the United States, backed by regaining some of the Western States back.
Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture
A spiritual successor to Dear Esther, EGGT is promising to be a very intriguing, story-driven release, following six characters taking on the end of the world in a game that’s probably bit more philosophical than your standard video game hit.
How is this different from Dark Souls? Faster and more difficult, but that not different for those looking for a bloody, awesome way to take out their aggression on disease inflected travelers.
