Vampyr – Dontnod
From the developers of Life is Strange and Remember Me, Vampyr is promising to offer a unique and deeply immersive role-playing experience centered around vampire mythology. Gone are the days where vampires are sparkling beings, we’re looking at you Twilight, replaced once again with the horrific scenes of blood and gore. Set in 20th century Britain, Vampyr features an interesting story, crisp graphics, and gameplay that focuses on both player choice and morality. In addition to the intrigue surrounding the game, Vampyr’s release was delayed from its original launch in November of this year, to Spring of next year. As you can imagine, this has done nothing to quash anticipation and excitement for the game.
Metro: Exodus – 4A Games
This story-driven first-person shooter from 4A Games was one of the biggest surprises of E3 2017 and is set to follow the last two titles, Metro 2033 and Metro: Last Light. What makes Metro: Exodus so different is the fact that it will be an open-world title. Considering the success we’ve seen from open world titles this year alone, it actually seems like the perfect move to give fans the best Metro experience yet. Of course, if you’ve seen any of the trailers shown since its big reveal, it also looks fantastic with its beautiful, yet eerie snowy landscapes of Moscow, Russia. With the growing fanbase of the Metro franchise, it’s no surprise that there has been of ton of excitement surrounding this third major game in the series.
State of Decay 2 – Undead Labs / Microsoft
The zombie genre is still very much alive (pardon the pun) and causing quite the stir within the gaming community. This Microsoft exclusive title comes from Undead Labs, as the sequel to the popular open-world zombie title State of Decay. Considering just how well received the original was in 2013, it’s hard to imagine that the new additions, like vehicles, and better graphics wouldn’t make State of Decay 2 appeal to fans even more. Whether you’re new to the series or brand spanking new, this immersive multiplayer zombie survival title is a bloody good time just waiting to happen.
Far Cry 5 – Ubisoft
For just over a decade we’ve been experiencing Far Cry through the lens of exotic, yet hostile settings, like Indonesia or the fiction Kyrat but that’s all about to change. Ubisoft is instead bringing us to a brand new, yet entirely familiar place, in small town USA. The first-person open-world shooter is the most controversial title in the franchise history, causing quite the stir when it was originally unveiled. Despite the controversial, yet realistic antagonists of a cult, it looks like Ubisoft brings just enough familiarity to Far Cry 5 to make it that much more exciting to play in a brand new setting. From the sprawling open world of the fictional town of Hope County, Montana, to the brand new ability to create a character, this realistic take on the Far Cry series is definitely a game to watch for when it launches in March 2018.
