This year - 2017 - will be a really great year for
the gaming industry. We will see launches for all platforms and many of the
games are to be launched much sooner than expected. The upcoming Switch games
are eagerly expected but we cannot deny the other platforms. We are faced with
anticipated sequels and standalone games that may change the genre. Although
new announcements can be made, if you want to see what to buy or you just want
to create a blog about a topic you like, here are the highly expected games to expect in 2017.
Star Trek Bridge Crew
Available on Vive and PSVR, the game
was supposed to be released in 2016 but was delayed. What is interesting is
that this is a VR game. The player can assume different bridge roles on the
much-loved Enterprise. You and your friends can use virtual reality to move
around the ship and the Enterprise does look stunning.
Mass Effect: Andromeda
In the Mass Effect universe there is
always something new to do. In Andromeda we do not really know exactly all that
will be available but what is surely interesting is that the game will look
really great. The storyline is focused on finding a brand new home for humans.
We have the things we love from the Mass Effect series, a modern look and an
This is a combination of BattlestarGalactica and Bayonetta with a huge focus on third person
combat. Nier is a cult classic with a clear sci-fi setting. In Automata we
continue the story, seeing Earthlings fighting together with combat androids
against the alien force that invaded years ago. Fluid combat is expected,
together with boss battles and huge atrocity displays in a world of humans and
Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands
Ubisoft basically combines its main
strengths: games with the Tom Clancy label and open world sandboxes. The result
is this really interesting modern-day game in a highly successful Ghost Recon
series. We will see players involved in Bolivia, fighting against the drug
cartel. The teams are faced with vast mountain ranges, swamps and deserts. Play
together with AI or with other gamers.
This game is actually a huge success
on Kickstarter. We are talking about a 3D platformer that tries to recapture
the N64 collectathons simplicity. You guide around Laylee and Yooka, a bat and
a chameleon, through beautiful landscapes and going over many obstacles.
Persona 5 is incredibly anticipated.
The game will finally be launched in April 2017. It is an RPG that follows
different high school students that have supernatural powers. The tone shift in
the series is quite substantial but that does not mean the game will not be
awesome. In Persona 5 we will follow some young flamboyant cat burglars, making
the story even more interesting than many expected.
Last but not least, Prey is a
reimagined 2006 Prey game. Arkane Studios brings the game back to life and
offers a sci-fi shooter set in a space station overrun by aliens. You will
fight your way through different settings and have a lot of fun.
