Cyberpunk 2077

Cyberpunk 2077 was announced way back in 2012 and it has taken a full eight years for CD Projekt Red to complete this inspiring project. Nobody knew that Cyberpunk 2077 would be featuring Keanu Reeves, and since this announcement, gamers have only gotten even more excited to play what looks like one of the largest, deepest, and most intense sci-fi RPG games. Given that the game is being developed by the team behind the acclaimed The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, we are very optimistic about Cyberpunk 2077.

DOOM Eternal

DOOM Eternal just dropped the official launch trailer and boy does it look amazing! The game is a direct sequel to DOOM 2016 but it comes with a bunch of new features, making the rip and tear experience even more fun. Doom Eternal will also allow players to customize the Slayer and enter through the gates of hell in style.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons

We were quite disappointed to learn that New Horizons wasn't going to be launching in 2019, but it does seem that Nintendo used that extra time to polish things up. The game will feature a dynamic weather system that can adjust according to the weather of your location. This could be one of the best Animal Crossing experiences ever.

Dying Light 2

The original Dying Light dropped when the gaming sphere was populated with zombie games. And due to this, the game couldn't gain enough attention in the initial days of its release. The sequel, Dying Light 2 is going to take everything that worked in the original game and ramp it up extensively. This means more zombies, more parkour, a well-written story, and much more.

Final Fantasy 7 Remake

Final Fantasy fans have been waiting for Final Fantasy 7 remake for a very long time. Square Enix recently dropped the PS4 demo for the remake and many people seemed to enjoy it. Despite all the pressure from fans, Square Enix is taking the time to completely re-imagine the game and offer an epic experience.

Ghost of Tsushima

Ghost of Tsushima is a long-awaited PS4 exclusive title, and from what we have seen so far, the game certainly looks and plays incredible. Tsushima is developed by Sucker Punch, a developer well-known for creating quality games. Even though we have seen quite a bit of Ghost of Tsushima, the game still remains a mystery in many ways.

The Last of Us Part 2

There aren't any doubts that The Last of Us was one of the best games of the last 10 years. Considering this, The Last of Us 2 has set higher expectations among fans. Naughty Dog already established a high bar by creating The Last of Us and it will be interesting to see how the developer surpasses it.

Nioh 2

The original Nioh reminded many players about FromSoftware's Dark Souls titles. Nioh did not just present a brilliant combat system, but it was also one of the best looking games inspired by the Soulsborne series. Nioh 2 is a sequel to the original game and Team Ninja has done a tremendous job in fixing the combat and ramping up the RPG elements. Nioh 2 will be launching on the PS4 tomorrow.

Resident Evil 3 Remake

With the grand success of Resident Evil 2 Remake, everybody knew that Resident Evil 3 would also be getting a makeover. Unsurprisingly, Capcom was quick to announce the anticipated title. However, Capcom is on a new mission with Resident Evil 3 Remake and is bumping things up extensively in terms of gameplay mechanics, visuals, and of course, the Nemesis.

Watch Dogs: Legion

Some people say that the original Watch Dogs wasn't a great game. However, I personally disagree with that. Even though the original Watch Dogs had a fair share of bugs and visual downgrades, the gameplay was very unique. With Watch Dogs 2, Ubisoft improved upon the bugs and visuals, but it was very underwhelming. Watch Dogs: Legion seems to take the entire lore in a different direction. From what we have seen so far, Watch Dogs: Legion will allow players to recruit any NPC in the game and gamers can play as any NPC in the game world. I am excited to see how this new way of gameplay turns out.
