God of War
Release date: 2018
Developer: Santa Monica Studio
The God of War is a franchise synonymous with three things: gore, huge monsters and angriest man in the world Kratos. Killing your way through the entirety of your school’s classics syllabus was always hell’a fun, but after six games the format became tired.
Yet PlayStation 4’s exclusive comeback with one of gaming’s biggest names has made things fresh and somehow done the impossible.
They’ve crafted a reboot that far surpasses the original and made a god feel human.
Being familiar with Kratos’ previous escapades isn’t necessary; his Blades of Chaos are gone, leaving behind only scars and regret. His famed bloodlust and orgies have made way for a tormented man struggling with fatherhood and bereavement.
Never before has a giant ash-covered god with the power to choke a cyclops while his arms are on fire felt more relatable. Thankfully, Kratos’ sudden maturity feels true to his character and the gameplay has grown up with him.

Developer: 4A Games
It’s no secret that in the Ukrainian Studio 4A games, which created a series of post-apocalyptic shooter Metro, many employees work from the collapsed GSC game world. For this very reason, the game was expected to something similar to S.T.A.L.K.E.R. and received a linear shooter. Which in itself is not bad. Be that as it may, the third part of the series, it seems, finally bring Metro to the most popular game that the people sang a long time ago. Artem going on a trip by train from Moscow in the dying sun of the TRANS-Ural region, which, in contrast to Western Russia, which suffered less from bombing. The very concept of the plot implies that the surface we have to wonder much more often than before — and this has already been confirmed by the developers.
Far Cry 5
Release date: 27 March 2018
The third part of this popular in the zero series produced a real sensation. Of course, as soon as the smell of money, Ubisoft included a conveyor. And after a couple of years, honest gamers to death tired of the mechanics of the open world, not changing from part to part. Therefore, the series took a logical break, so that players are a little bored with the bored gameplay features, and developers in the meantime a little re-invented the formula of the project. Already in early 2018, all the suffering will be able to dive into the torn civil war fictitious US state, where the sectarians who went declared to all residents of the district. Judging by the pre-release version of the game, nothing about the previous games in the series Far Cry 5 will not change. But there will be more content and opportunities, and mechanics will bring to mind — in General, all in the spirit of modern sequels.
Kingdom Come: Deliverance
Release date: 13 February 2018
Developer: Warhorse Studio
This game is a new project by Daniel Vavra, to whom we owe the very first part of Mafia. It is so tempting to call the genius of game design: very much this craftsman stands for realism and pays great attention to all the gameplay stuff. As a result, such a solid picture develops out of trifles, which differs very favourably from other products of the industry. And that Kingdom Come: Deliverance is really different from the bulk of the games, do not even doubt. Medieval Bohemia, about fifteen kilometres of open world, unrealistically cool graphics on CryEngine 4-sounds tempting? This is only the beginning! A unique and extremely realistic fencing system, a lot of options for completing quests, well — written characters and dialogue that’s what we are ready to love the game right now. Just to start: pre-release version hellishly retarded. We hope for good optimization to the start of sales.

Developer: Experiment 101
About this indie game originally from Sweden, we recently talked in great detail. Approach Studio Experiment 101 to develop the project I want to crack up without stopping. Briefly, it reads variability in all. Weapons crafting of details that affect the parameters of the hero. The hero, by the way, also crafting in the editor, and musculature, height and weight greatly affect its starting characteristics and the gameplay as a whole. What’s on the list? And, the system of karma! Players will often be faced with moral choices. We hope that they will not be reduced to “good” or “bad”. In the interview, we were promised a huge variability in the passage and a lot of endings. In short, what we have here is a material you tell? If you are interested, see the details in the video right below this text!
Release date: spring 2018
Developer: Dontnod Entertainment
The French from Dontnod Entertainment has created quite a unique game, in our time — a rarity. And with each project, they gain experience. Here is an example of a series of “the Witcher”: the first two games were controversial, but the third struck everyone on the spot. Approximately the same creative path we predict and this team. Its a new project Vampyr on fact gives the reason so to think. The utterly grim setting is London, not had time to recover from the effects of the First world war, swept over the epidemic of Spanish influenza. So if that wasn’t enough, our protagonist, is practising healing and even contracted vampirism. Players will have to be torn between the face of the good Hippocrates, healing disease, and the inner monster, which constantly needs blood. The future of London depends only on the decisions made in the process of passing — the space for an abundance of moral dilemmas is outlined excellent. Interest in the project and adds a scattering of interesting mechanic like relations with the NPC: vampires can’t go to someone’s house without an invitation, so you’ll have to constantly go to different kinds of tricks not to die of hunger. In General, if everything goes as it should, we will finally see the first decent RPG about vampires since Vampire: the Masquerade.
Red Dead Redemption 2
Release date: 2018
Developer: Rockstar Games
The release of the continuation of the main game about the Wild West in the industry from the authors do not need to submit the GTA series until recently was only a matter of time. And this issue was finally resolved: this epochal event will happen in the spring of 2018. In the best traditions of Rockstar Games, not telling about their games nothing clear until the release of RDR 2 at the moment is very little known. However, to doubt the quality and commercial success of the future it is not necessary. And you should know one thing: during the last financial report Take Two company President Karl Slatoff refused to comment on the possibility of the game on the PC.
Release date: 2018
Developer: Insomniac Games
Remember the last good game about this kind of superhero in red and blue tights. Don’t know about you, but I that comes to mind is Ultimate Spider-Man, published more than ten years ago. As generally happened that one of the most popular characters in comics so much time languished without a suitable game named after yourself? Apparently, the same thought in Sony! Of course, Marvel’s Spider-Man will be created with an eye on the superhero masterpiece of recent years — the Batman Arkham series. It seems to us that the gameplay demo impressed you with the smoothness and variety of animations no less than ours. It is also known that the game can be held on the “stealth” and it will be a gameplay section, where gamers will have to take control of our good neighbour Mary Jane. And of course, do not forget that Spider is a very positive hero, so you have to do without killing. Generally.
Detroit: Become Human
Release date: 2018
Developer: Quantic Dream
Wanted to start a paragraph with a story about the main provider of an interactive movie in the game industry David Cage, when suddenly I remembered Late Shift. This is an interactive movie! And cage, rather, the interactive three-dimensional animation does. That, however, does not negate the fact that in his work he is very skilled: about Fahrenheit and Heavy Rain heard probably everyone. But Beyond: Two Souls came out very controversial. We hope that the Maestro will take into account the mistakes, learn all the lessons and give a hit that will Eclipse all his previous creations! About something and promises to be Detroit: Become Human. The game will unfold in the not so distant future and will affect the extremely salty science fiction of the last century, the theme of self-consciousness of machines, which in recent years with excessive zeal picked up game developers. The great influence of each scene on the development of the script and the ability to go through dozens of different ways — is not it why we love the game, David Cage? Yeah, not for that. The plot is pretty linear there is always developing… In General, I hope that this time everything will be exactly what you really should love the game, David Cage. And Become Human we are very much even ready to love. Honestly.
The Crew 2
Release date: 16 March 2018
Developer: Ivory Tower
The first part of the series, with all the desire, cannot be called an unambiguous success, but in our opinion, the game came out quite a bit. Racing on MMO-rails with a huge open world and multiplayer mechanics from the lobby-it is, of course, very cool, but it worked very poorly. As a result, the best way to spend time in the Crew were travelling through a small copy of America under some Kavinsky-Night Call. The second part should Polish these omissions: motorcycles, boats and planes will be added to the fleet, and it will be possible to switch modes of transport right on the go. I really hope that this time the Ivory Tower will make a true MMO racing game in which there is a lesson for those who mastered the storyline campaign.
