The summer season is filled with pool days, vacations, and more. However, there’s nothing wrong with taking a break from the action outside to enjoy some video games inside. With that in mind, here are the best five video games to stay pumped for summer 2017.
Mass Effect Andromeda
Mass Effect Andromeda is a science fiction action role-playing video game developed by BioWare and published by Electronic Arts. The fourth installment in the Mass Effect series, it was released on March 21, 2017 for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
The game takes place within the Milky Way galaxy during the year 2819; players assume the role of either Sara or Scott Ryder (nephew/niece), members of an elite military team called Pathfinders who travel in search of new worlds to explore and colonize. While exploring a newly discovered planet, a mission goes awry when they crash land onto another one far away from home. As they try to find their way back home, they must learn about this new world and its inhabitants so that they can form alliances with them in order to survive their stay there.
Horizon Zero Dawn
Horizon Zero Dawn is an action role-playing game developed by Guerrilla Games and published by Sony Interactive Entertainment. It was released for PlayStation 4 on February 28, 2017. Horizon Zero Dawn is a third-person shooter game set in an open world environment that puts players in control of Aloy, an outcast from a matriarchal society living in a world inhabited by mechanized creatures called Machines. With the help of her Focus device that allows her to see into the past, she sets out to discover her origins and exact revenge for her mother’s murder at the hands of one of these machines.
Prey is one of the best video games to get you pumped for summer 2017. It’s a first-person shooter that takes place in space, and it has all the elements of a great movie—the setting alone could be used as inspiration for an entire film series. You have to fight off aliens while also trying not to get sucked into space by gravity or crushed by falling debris.
The game even has multiplayer modes, which means you can play with your friends! The problem is that Prey isn’t available on Xbox One or PlayStation 4 yet; instead, you can only buy it for PC computers (or use Steam). But if you don’t mind playing on a PC computer then this game will be perfect for summer because it lets you feel like an astronaut without having any training whatsoever!
Farpoint is a first-person shooter for the Playstation VR. The game takes place on an alien planet and has you fighting these lifeforms, which can be quite scary at times. The graphics are amazing and it really makes you feel as if you’re on another planet. There are also many different weapons available to use in this game so if you love shooting games then this will definitely be one for you to try out during the summer months!
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild
If you’re looking for a good game to play during the summer, look no further. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is a great game to play at any time of year, but it’s especially perfect for summer. It’s an adventure game where you have to explore an open world and solve puzzles as you go along. The graphics are also beautiful—it’s got a very unique art style that makes everything look very pretty.
You’ll get lost in this game if you’re not careful! And that’s okay; it’s fun to get lost sometimes.
The five best video games for the summer of 2017.
- Mass Effect: Andromeda
It’s been six years since the last game in the series, and we’re ready for another epic adventure with Commander Shepard. The game takes place shortly after the events of Mass Effect 2, when humanity has launched a colonizing mission to another galaxy in search of new planets to settle on. You play as one of these colonists, but you don’t know what awaits you there until you arrive at your destination: an alien world full of hostile creatures and dead civilizations that may hold answers about your past. It sounds like an exciting story with plenty of places to explore (and fight), so it should keep you entertained all summer long
Once you’ve beaten the games above, it’s time to look at your summer schedule and decide what other games are right for you. There are so many great titles out there, but these five should get you started on making some memories of your own this summer. Which one will you be playing first?
