Crackdown 3 was first announced at E3 2014 and planned for a 2016 release, but a delay pushed it back to November 2017. It was then hit with a another delay following its bold showing at E3 2017, and now it’s set to launch at an unspecified date in spring 2018.
Crackdown 3 is going to be one of the Xbox One’s marquee exclusive games, featuring immense levels of environmental destruction in an open world–an evolution of the previous games in the series. However, there will be a difference in how this is handled between single-player and multiplayer.
The mass destruction in multiplayer relies on server-based cloud technology which will provide the grand spectacle in online games. On the other hand, the single-player campaign will be more tame, akin to a Just Cause. This open-world action game focuses its narrative on taking down criminal syndicates similar to the original Crackdown.
We can expect plenty of superhuman abilities for strength and speed, along with an arsenal of weapons and vehicles. It’s apt to compare it to Grand Theft Auto or Saints Row, but Crackdown separates itself by instilling the feeling of being a true superhero.
Detroit: Become Human
Detroit: Become Human is the next immersive story-driven game from director David Cage and developer Quantic Dream, best known for Heavy Rain, Fahrenheit (Indigo Prophecy in North America), and Beyond: Two Souls.
The script supposedly took Cage over two years to write and, as the name suggests, the game takes place in a futuristic version of Detroit. It follows the journey of three androids. Kara gains sentience and escapes the factory she was built in. Meanwhile, Connor is designed to hunt down rogue androids like Kara. Finally, the third protagonist, Markus, is a freedom fighter who is devoted to freeing other androids.
Like Heavy Rain before it, many major characters will live and die based on player decisions, and the story will continue to progress accordingly. Those who enjoy strong performance-driven characters in their video game stories should definitely keep their eyes on Detroit: Become Human.
Dragon Ball FighterZ
Matching the style and over-the-top action of the Dragon Ball Z series has been a challenge for past games. The upcoming Dragon Ball FighterZ, however, looks to be the exception, pushing the trend of average DBZ fighters aside and bringing the series to new heights. Coming from Arc Systems Works–the same developer behind Guilty Gear Xrd, BlazBlue, and Persona 4 Arena–the new game is not only looking to be a faithful adaptation of the series, but also one of the most exciting fighting games of 2018.
Featuring characters from across the entire Dragon Ball Z series, and even some references from Dragon Ball Super, FighterZ is a mash-up that pits characters in intense 3v3 battles that will level environments and push the fighters to their limits of power. Moving away from the 3D arenas of Raging Blast and Xenoverse, FighterZ brings the action to the traditional 2D plane–and it looks all the better for it. With characters pulling off high-powered, screen-filling moves, and performing split-second dodges to get the upper hand against their enemy–no frame of animation feels wasted in Dragon Ball FighterZ. There’s a greater level of detail here that the past games weren’t even close to replicating from the TV show.
Anyone who’s watched Dragon Ball Z knows that it’s got a style all its own, and FighterZ lovingly recreates many of the series’ most iconic moments in its core mechanics. With more characters yet to be revealed, along with a surprisingly robust Story Mode, there’s definitely more to this fighter that remains to be seen. But what’s been shown thus far looks to be everything a DBZ fan could hope for in a game.
Far Cry 5
When reflecting on the Far Cry series’ past locales, Far Cry 5’s rural America seems like a refreshing and evocative choice for Ubisoft’s first-person shooter series. Between the sprawling farmlands and dense forests of the fictional region known as Hope County, Montana, the place is primed to make the most of Far Cry’s open world and emergent gameplay. Far Cry 5 also promises to continue the series’ tradition of featuring memorable antagonists. As the leader of a doomsday cult known as Eden’s Gate, Joseph Seed looks to be as calculating as 4’s Pagan Min and as fanatical as 3’s Vaas.
What makes Far Cry 5 all the more promising is how it adapts fan-favorite features like Far Cry 4’s cooperative play and Far Cry Primal’s animal companionship. Along with a wealth of vehicles and weapons plus untamed animals you can turn against enemies, there shouldn’t be a shortage of creative ways to take down Eden’s Gate.
Ghost of Tsushima
With the superhero-inspired Infamous series, Sucker Punch Productions proved itself capable of creating beautiful, vast open worlds packed with gameplay opportunities. Its next title, Ghost of Tsushima, looks set to leverage the experience it has accumulated from other projects to deliver something completely different.
Set in 1274, Ghost of Tsushima casts players as one of the last remaining samurai as he faces the ruthless Mongol Empire. What makes Ghost of Tsushima interesting is the idea that, to succeed, you will have to cast aside traditional samurai methods, and the codes that govern them, in favour of stealth and subterfuge. This means Ghost of Tsushima is essentially a story about the birth of the ninja, and the idea of an open-world stealth game is a very exciting prospect, especially for fans of Metal Gear Solid V and those begging for a new Tenchu.
Although Sony and Sucker Punch haven’t outright said Ghost of Tsushima will be released in 2018, it’s believed the game has been in development since 2014, when Infamous: Second Son and Last Light launched. That means it’s been in development for around three years, so there’s a good chance the game will launch in 2018.
God of War
The upcoming God of War is a drastic departure from the style and tone of previous games in the series. Its somber, more deeply personal narrative, new combat mechanics, and aged version of series protagonist Kratos each contribute toward what looks to be an exciting new direction for the series.
Taking place many years after the destruction of the Olympian gods, Kratos now lives with his son Atreus in a hostile world ruled by Norse gods. He lives in peace, but when his role in the destruction of Olympus becomes known, the Norse gods plot to kill him, forcing Kratos and Atreus to embark on an adventure for survival.
While only a few trailers have been shown of God of War so far, it’s already shaping up to one of the most exciting games in Sony’s lineup for 2018. And with God of War II director Cory Barlog at the helm, the game could also be one of the finest in the series.
The Inpatient looks to be an enjoyable experience in two areas. First, as a PlayStation VR title, it aims to scare you on a subconscious level, using psychological horror and binaural audio to worm its way into your deepest fears.
Second, it serves as a prequel to 2015’s choice-driven horror game Until Dawn, with the same writers and director at the helm. Set 60 years before the events of that game, you’ll take control of a sanitarium patient out to reclaim their missing memories. Voice recognition and player choices affect how you interact with the other residents of the asylum, changing how the story ends. January isn’t traditionally a month associated with horror, but The Inpatient is still staking a creepy claim.
There are few games that create a post-apocalyptic atmosphere as detailed as the Metro franchise. Based on a series of books, Metro 2033 and Last Light take place after the atomic bomb has destroyed the world. The survivors find refuge under the streets in a vast and sprawling metro system where irradiated monsters and bandits roam.
Survival has always been at the forefront, and based on what we’ve seen, Metro Exodus is no different. You must conserve ammo, not only because one more bullet can be the difference between life and death, but because they are the common currency underground. And if you decide to venture above ground, you must pay attention to your oxygen levels.
The Metro games are brutal, haunting experiences that feel almost too real. Metro Exodus looks to follow and expand on the ideas of the first. If you have any interest in horror or first person shooter games, this is one you won’t want to miss.
Project Octopath Traveler
Project Octopath Traveler on Switch evokes the qualities that are bound to please fans of classic Japanese RPGss. Its “HD 2D” pixelated visual style offers a unique take on the much-used JRPG aesthetic, combining 16-bit style character sprites and textures with polygonal environments and high-definition effects. Combat is involved and utilizes weakness exploitation much like the Shin Megami Tensei games. And its ensemble cast of playable characters even calls back to early SaGa games. There’s already plenty of strong characteristics at play that make Project Octopath Traveler a promising adventure.
It’s worth noting that the game is being worked on by Tomoya Asano, a Square Enix veteran developer who served as a producer on both Final Fantasy III and Final Fantasy IV for Nintendo DS, Final Fantasy: The 4 Heroes of Light, Bravely Default, and Bravely Second: End Layer. While we’ve only gotten a demo of the game since its initial announcement, we’re eager to see what else it has to offer. Heck, we’re still curious what the game’s final name will be, seeing as Project Octopath Traveler is technically a working title. Time will tell.
Red Dead Redemption 2
Out of all the games coming in 2018, Rockstar’s follow-up to Red Dead Redemption is arguably the most significant. The developer’s other major franchise, Grand Theft Auto, is a cultural phenomenon, and even in 2017, over four years since it was first released, Grand Theft Auto V continues to be one of the best-selling games in the US every month.
The first Red Dead Redemption was a critical success, driven by a powerful story and an inviting open-world. But what’s most intriguing is finding out how Rockstar will integrate the elements that have made GTA Online so pervasive. Owning a garage full of crazy vehicles and high-tech weapons make sense in GTA’s city environment, but what is there to spend so much money on in the Old West? Or will Red Dead Redemption 2 focus primarily on its standalone single-player story with the online multiplayer used as a fun, but secondary, amusement?
This sequel has a lot to live up to, and succeed or fail, the story of Red Dead Redemption will be one worth following closely in 2018.
Gaming is becoming the necessity of many of the people and they are diving into this virtual world like crazy. The developers are deeply involving the tradition to unfold more new games for the keen gamers so that they could easily get the top-notch experience. What makes the sense here is that there is always a competition between the rush of games launched in a year, we have plucked and put in the information for the best only games.
