What’s Coming In 2018
While 2017 had its share of great games on PS4, Xbox One, PC, and Switch, 2018 is also going to be filled with a wealth of exciting new experiences. Notable standouts include Red Dead Redemption 2, Kingdom Hearts III, Crackdown 3, God of War, Project Octopath Traveller, and more.
A Way Out
- A Way Out is the next game written and directed by Josef Fares, one of the creative forces behind the excellent Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons.
- Crackdown 3 was first announced at E3 2014 and planned for a 2016 release, but a delay pushed it back to November 2017.
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.
Dragon Ball FighterZ
- 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.
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.
Ghost of Tsushima
- Set in 1274, Ghost of Tsushima casts players as one of the last remaining samurai as he faces the ruthless Mongol Empire.
God of War
- The upcoming God of War is a drastic departure from the style and tone of previous games 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.
Kingdom Hearts III
- It’s hard to count the number of reasons to be excited for Kingdom Hearts III.
Monster Hunter World
- Monster Hunter World is poised to take the series even further. On PS4, Xbox One, and PC, the game will obviously look better than any previous version of the game, but it’s the refinements in gameplay and online multiplayer that have a chance of finally pushing it into the mainstream.
Ni no Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom
Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire
Project Octopath Traveler
- Project Octopath Traveler on Switch evokes the qualities that are bound to please fans of classic Japanese RPGss.
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.
Sea of Thieves
- Sea of Thieves has been in Microsoft’s deck for quite some time, since it was announced at E3 2015, but it’s set to see the light of day in 2018 with an official release.
- The second game ends on a massive cliffhanger, and rabid fans want the series to return so much that they raised well over $6 million on Kickstarter for Shenmue III.
- Insomniac Game’s upcoming Spider-Man exclusive for the PlayStation 4 might finally end the long drought.
State of Decay 2
- Perhaps the most exciting feature of State of Decay 2 is one that was sorely absent from the first game: multiplayer.
Skull & Bones
- Enter Skull & Bones, Ubisoft’s direct successor to Black Flag. Aside from offering a traditional single-player-focused campaign, the game also offers 5v5 multiplayer modes where you and four others fight other player-controlled ships for loot.
