Most Anticipated games of 2018

While 2017 has given us many iconic games like Horizon zero dawn, Legend of zelda: Breath of the wild, Super mario odyssey, Assassin creed origins, it is almost completed.
2018 is shaping up to be a similarly exciting year for video game releases. I’ve compiled a list of the 10 most anticipated games from all platforms that are expected to come out next year.

Here are the list of games :

1. Red Dead Redemption 2
Releasing: Q2 2017
Platforms: PS4, Xbox One

While we know very little about Red Dead Redemption 2, we know that it will be yet another Rockstar masterpiece with a massive open world to explore, great characters to meet, and of course have a great multiplayer experience that will merge the world with an online aspect for you to loot and shoot everything you want. Red Dead Redemption 2 is the third entry in the series and it will push the game’s best features to a new level thanks to the ability to develop the game on new hardware seen as this is the first Red Dead on PS4 and Xbox One.


2. Spider-Man
Releasing: 2018
Platforms: PS4

The team behind the awesome Ratchet and Clank series has been hard at work on bringing everyone’s favourite neighbourhood Spider to life in his very own video game. Spider-Man is said to be the Arkham of 2018 and I can believe it after seeing it in action at E3 2017. The game plays so well and the idea of being able to take control of Spider-Man and fully utilize all his web swinging, wall-crawling and awesome acrobatic abilities makes us all happy. We cannot wait to give this a go when it releases in 2018.

3. God of War
Releasing: 2018
Platforms: PS4

Sony has another fantastic PS4 exclusive up their sleeves next year as the God of War series will be headed in a new direction. After the events of God of War III, Kratos has settled down in life and moved to a land where the Nordic gods live. He now sets off to teach his son all about the lands and dangers while trying to shield him from the truth of Kratos’ past. His son does not know what his father has done in his past so in a way, it is a personal journey for him as he struggles to balance family with the curse of his past. This god of war is significantly longer than previous god of war games.

4. Anthem
Releasing: 2018
Platforms: PS4, PC, Xbox One

Anthem is said to be a Destiny killer but we will have to see about that after Destiny 2’s great success. This online-only multiplayer game is being developed by Bioware and is set for a 2018 release. Players will take the role of a Freelancer, a member of a bold group of people who leave their civilization to explore new worlds filled with dangers. The game will be set in an open world environment which the player can explore at his own will and will take control of an exosuit known as a Javelin. These suits are fully customizable and have various weapons and abilities that will help you survive the harsh environments.

5. The Crew 2
Releasing: 16 March 2018
Platforms: PS4, PC, Xbox One

The Crew 2 was one of my favourite games of E3 2017 and I could not believe how far Ubisoft has pushed the series. Instead of just cars to race around in, you can now instantly change to a boat or a plane at any time and carry on playing the game as if nothing happened. This seamless transition will make sure that the game breaks boundaries when it comes to exploration and at the same time challenge you to new heights across these three modes of racing. The best part of it all is that you can fully explore the entire U.S as it is the biggest open world built in a racing game.

6. Ni No Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom
Releasing: 19 January 2018
Platforms: PS4, PC

Ni No Kuni was a awesome RPG game on the PS3 . Ni No Kuni II might not have the likes of Studio Ghibli at the helm, but I am sure they will still manage to deliver an above-standard RPG experience that merges anime with a stunning soundtrack, story and magnificent world to explore. Ni No Kuni II follows the story of Evan Pettishisker Tildrum, a young king who was kicked out of his castle. He now sets forth to rebuild his kingdom and take down the evil that has risen in the land of Ding Dong Dell.

7. Monster Hunter World
Releasing: 26 January 2018
Platforms: PS4, PC, Xbox One

I have been waiting for a fully explorable 3D world with living and breathing locations to escape to and Monster Hunter World will be just that. We know that a Monster Hunter game has big battles, huge open world areas, a deep weapon system, and of course, all the awesome monsters to slay. When Monster Hunter World releases early next year it will finally give PS4 owners a chance to explore these features like never before.

8. Sea of Thieves
Releasing:  2018
Platforms: PC, Xbox One

This upcoming Xbox One and PC game is a pirate-themed action adventure where players will travel and explore an open world on a pirate ship and assume different roles across each player. One player could be in charge of steering, while the other navigation, ad the other combat. As you explore this world you will need to search for treasure and embark on quests. The only problem is that the world is filled with other players too and they will stop at nothing to steal your booty and take over your ship. This is where Sea of Thieves’ shared world comes to life as you fight as Pirates would over treasure that was not yours in the first place.

9. Kingdom Hearts III
Releasing: 2018
Platforms: PS4 Xbox One

Kingdom Hearts III is looking to be the biggest and best in the series. New worlds such as a Pixar location that will star our favourite toys from the Toy Story series, and even a Big Hero 6 world where we can fly around with Baymax and kill some Heartless. Kingdom Hearts III is no doubt a step in a new direction for the series as it will be the first fully-fledged Kingdom Hearts game on PS4 and will finally close the Sora saga in an epic way. I cannot wait to explore all the lands, kill the Heartless, and gather Keyblades in order to stop Xehanort from creating the one and mighty X-Blade.

10. Far Cry 5
Releasing: 27 February  2018
Platforms: PS4, PC, Xbox One

Far Cry 5 is set in the fictional Hope County, Montana where a preacher named Joseph Seed has taken it upon himself to lead the town away from the sins of the world by establishing a congregation called Eden’s Gate. The idea of this group is to lead people to salvation by “forcing” them to submit themselves to the will of God. Of course, every Far Cry is led by a maniac and Joseph is number 5’s crazy person. With weapons and force he takes over the town and you and a group of non-believers need to take it back.
