    10 Best VideoGames For 2015

    With E3 2015 just around the corner, there’s a lot of speculation about what will be released in the last half of this year. Instead of doing guess-work, we bring you ten games to look out for this year. They are all on the cards for 2015 release, barring massive delays or other mishaps. These are ten games you should be playing this year...


    Assassin’s Creed: Victory
    PC / PS4 / XO
    Despite Assassin’s Creed: Unity being somewhat disappointing, there is still a lot of excitement for the next instalment in this long running franchise. Victory steps ahead in time, taking us to Victorian London. This setting is sure to be exciting, and Assassin’s Creed: Victory has (on paper) a hell of a lot going for it. We’re holding thumbs for this one, and hoping that it makes up for past mistakes that the series made with Unity. With the Ubisoft Quebec development team not pulling any punches, things are looking exciting for Assassin’s Creed fans.

    Batman: Arkham Knight
    PC / PS4 / XO
    The first of the current Batman series to hit Xbox One and PS4, Arkham Knight also sees Rocksteady returning as developers. This is something that will hopefully alleviate the bugs we found in Arkham Origins. In addition to the original team getting behind this game, Arkham Knight will also introduce the Batmobile as a major element of the game, and this driveable vehicle will be yet another way for the player to traverse what is promised to be the biggest Batman setting to date. Fans will certainly want to pay attention to this one, even if it has seen a delay or two.

    Dead Island 2
    PC / PS4 / XO
    With Techland having jumped ship to Warner Bros and creating Dying Light, one cannot help but wonder what will happen with the Dead Island franchise. Well, developers Yager (who were behind the stunning Spec Ops: The Line) are putting the sequel together, and the action is moving from the tropics to the big city; Dead Island 2 will be taking place in a virtual recreation of Los Angeles. This will likely provide a massive playground for us to explore, and while the combat will still focus on a first-person melee style, there will be a much larger arsenal of weapons to choose from.

    Halo 5: Guardians
    XO
    With a larger wold than ever before and a thrilling new character in the form of Agent Locke (a Spartan who is tasked with tracking down Master Chief), this new Halo will be the first in the series to be specifically created for the Xbox One. Offering a smooth 60fps, Guardians will coincide with a new TV series produced by none other than Steven Spielberg. With Bungie no longer behind the development of the Halo games, it will be interesting to see where this latest instalment goes… and it’s more than clear to everyone that this franchise most certainly is here to stay.

    Just Cause 3
    PC / PS4 / XO
    Fans of the Just Cause series all offered a cheer when news of this long awaited sequel arrived not too long ago. Set in a fictional Mediterranean archipelago, Just Cause 3 will give the player a generous, 640 square kilometre playground in which to sow the kind of chaos the franchise is famous for. Just Cause 3 will feature the series’ signature grappling hook, and will also introduce a new wing suit to the mix, sure to provide even more high-altitude high-jinx. At the time of release, this game (the first Just Cause since Square Enix bought out Eidos) will only offer a single player experience… but that’s fine with us fans!

    Quantum Break
    XO
    Quantum Break is an ambitious development from the team that brought us Max Payne and Alan Wake. Remedy Entertainment have taken on the challenge of creating a game that will work hand in hand with a TV series player’s actions in-game will have the chance to affect how the TV show turns out. After a time-travelling experiment goes wrong, the game’s three heroes gain special abilities including to freeze time and keep moving while everyone else is frozen. Quantum Break is ambitious and is sure to be heavily story driven, and looks like it will make for a grand experience.

    Rise of the Tomb Raider
    XO / X360 (Timed Exclusive)
    The series reboot of Tomb Raider in 2013 made a great many people sit up and pay attention. Now this second instalment will see the newly imaging Lara Croft develop even further into the hard-nosed heroine that is one of the most famous characters in video gaming. It seems, though, that the release date may well slip into 2016, but we’re hoping that we see this game this year, still… at least on Xbox One. In a very controversial move, the developers will be releasing it as a timed exclusive, meaning fans who play on other platforms will need to wait longer before they can continue Lara’s adventures.

    The Division
    PC / PS4 / XO
    When a terrifying disease wipes out most of America’s population in less than a week, it is up to a group of sleeper agents, called The Division, to restore order in a world gone mad. This ambitious title will put the player in control of one of these agents, and they will take to the streets of a near-future New York City in order the set things straight. Though it has suffered a few delays, this ambitious project looks good to go for 2015 (we’re holding thumbs) and will certainly provide tons of entertainment for those that enjoy tactical shooters with MMORPG elements.

    The Witcher 3: The Wild Hunt
    PC / PS4 / XO
    A game that’s already being touted as a Game of the Year candidate, the third instalment of CD Projekt RED’s Witcher series will see Geralt of Rivia’s story come to a close. With around 100 hours of game play (if you include side quests) and a world that is promised to be 30 times larger than anything we have seen from The Witcher before, this game has fans abuzz with excitement. Even newcomers will be able to take on the title, without having player the first two. And best of all, barring mishaps, The Witcher 3: The Wild Hunt should be with us within the next couple of months.
    /
    Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End
    PS4
    How can we not be excited about this one? The previous Uncharted games were some of the best titles released for the PS3, and the series’ debut on the PS4 is certain to look and feel absolutely stunning. The game will see Nathan Drake coming out of retirement and hunting for a controversial pirate’s treasure. And some of the new faces on the development team includes names that were involved in the creation of the stunning The Last of Us… there’s little doubt that Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End will be one of the must-play games upon its release.
