It’s a new year, which means more video games to look forward to! Let’s take a peek into 2018 and see what we can anticipate.
Wargroove is a turn-based strategy game developed by Chucklefish. It is inspired by Advance Wars, but with a few notable differences. For example, Wargroove has a cast of colorful characters that you can recruit throughout the game and use to fight your battles for you. Each character has unique stats (attack power, defense etc.) and weapons that can be unlocked as the game progresses.
The story takes place in a fantasy world where all countries are at war over territory and resources. You play as Mercia – an aspiring commander who must defend her home country from invaders while also taking part in other conflicts around the world. The campaign features branching paths based on decisions made during gameplay; this allows players to experience different plotlines depending on how they choose to proceed through each level!
Vampyr is a role-playing game set in 1918 London, and it’s about vampires. The developers describe it as “a darkly atmospheric game that will mature and evolve over time, continuously expanding with new content.” You play as Dr. Jonathan Reid, a doctor who has been turned into a vampire during the Great War. The player’s primary goal is to navigate their way through this new world while trying to maintain their own humanity along the way. It’s being published by Focus Home Interactive and developed by Dontnod Entertainment—the same developer behind Life Is Strange (2015) and Remember Me (2013). Vampyr will be released on 5 June 2018 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Switch
Ni No Kuni 2: Revenant Kingdom
In the sequel to Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch, you play as King Evan Pettiwhisker Tildrum and your goal is to rebuild your kingdom after it has been overthrown by an evil usurper named Bardock.
This game is a role-playing game that features an open world map where you can explore freely without being restricted by invisible walls or loading screens. You will also be able to recruit other characters into your party and control them in battle, complete side quests for extra rewards, collect loot from defeated enemies and talk with NPCs who may have useful information for you.
The game will feature familiar faces from its predecessor including Roland Havarti III (the former king), Drippy (a fairy) and Swaine (a young boy).
It will be released exclusively on PlayStation 4 in 2018 following a delay from its initial 2017 release date. It was originally canceled but was later revived by Bandai Namco Games after overwhelming demand from fans who wanted another entry in this beloved series!
Metal Gear Survive
Metal Gear Survive is the first game in the series not to be directed by Hideo Kojima, who has since left Konami and formed his own studio. It’s also set in an alternate universe, rather than the events of Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes and The Phantom Pain (though it does feature many of the same characters).
Survive drops players into a world where humans have been wiped out, except for a few survivors and an army of zombie soldiers who’ve been sent out to hunt them down. You’ll need to scavenge for food, weapons, and other resources in order to stay alive as you explore the open world desert environment. In addition to playing as either a human survivor or one of the undead enemies—you can also play as both at once! Or maybe just play as one type and use your friends’ characters as zombies under your control? Or maybe even donate all your money so that no one else gets any perks? Who knows?! One thing’s certain though: this game will allow you endless opportunities for customization options that are sure not disappoint no matter how they’re used or why!
Agony is a survival horror game developed by Madmind Studio and published by PlayWay. It was released on May 29, 2018 for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Agony is a first-person survival horror game with RPG elements that places players in hell as the main character (named ADAM). The player must explore the depths of hell while solving puzzles and avoiding demons to escape Hell’s domain.
Madmind Studios announced Agony II at E3 2019; it will be a prequel to the original game set before ADAM arrives in hell, following his transformation into an undead being.
Skull And Bones
Skull And Bones is a pirate game. It’s set in the Indian Ocean in the 18th century, and it’s developed by Ubisoft Singapore. It’s rumored to be a multiplayer game, but nothing has been confirmed yet.
The game is expected to be released sometime in 2018.
Skies Unknown is the sequel to 2014’s Sky, which was a flight simulator game. Skies Unknown takes place in the Pacific Ocean during the 1930s. The player is an airman that has been called up for duty. You must fight against enemy planes and ships while flying through different levels of cloud cover, weather conditions, cities filled with skyscrapers, and more!
You will have to keep your eyes out for enemy fighters as well as search for hangars where you can land your plane or refuel it if it runs out of fuel mid-flight!
The Crew 2
The Crew 2 is a racing game set in a fictionalized version of the United States, where you can drive around and explore. It has a story mode with cutscenes and dialogue, as well as co-op and competitive multiplayer modes. You can also just drive around in the open world by yourself or with friends if you don’t want to play any of the official modes.
This is one of those games that’s really hard to describe without spoiling it—basically, there are lots of different types of cars and trucks you can use, from off-road trucks to exotic sports cars (and everything in between), all with slightly different handling mechanics. There are also boats and planes that vary even more than regular vehicles; for example, planes have better acceleration but worse handling than cars do!
World Of Warcraft: Battle For Azeroth
World Of Warcraft: Battle For Azeroth:
This is the seventh expansion for World of Warcraft, and it also marks the second expansion for Battle for Azeroth. The first expansion pack was Warlords Of Draenor. You can expect to see new dungeons, raids, and more with this one.
Detroit Become Human
It’s been a while since we were introduced to Kara, Connor and Markus. In the year 2038, android technology has reached such heights that it’s become commonplace in daily life. But when androids start behaving unexpectedly—defying their programming—it triggers a chain of events that will change everything. You play as these three characters as they live their lives and attempt to survive in this hostile future.
Detroit: Become Human is an upcoming action-adventure game developed by Quantic Dream and published by Sony Interactive Entertainment for the PlayStation 4, as part of its flagship console’s mid-generation refresh (PS4 Pro). It is set to be released worldwide on 25 May 2018. The game marks the third release in Quantic Dream’s Detroit series after Fahrenheit (Indigo Prophecy) and Heavy Rain, which themselves were successors to Omikron: The Nomad Soul. It began development after the completion of Heavy Rain but was delayed following internal restructuring at publisher Sony Computer Entertainment Europe (SCEE).
The game features four protagonists who are played through multiple chapters: Kara (Valorie Curry), an android who works with her adoptive father at a factory; Luke Hobbs’ daughter Ronnie Raymond/Firestorm (Sarah Aubrey), whose powers cause her trouble growing up; Connor Blake/Kara Batista/Detective Allen Cross’ partner Detective Kara Perez/Blake Walker/Cross Force gang member #3
