2017’s Most Expected Releases

Few things in this world are met with the same level of excitement. And few are the things that can rally up the same number of enthusiastic fans. But computer games are much in their right to tantalize and to ask us to hold our breaths for the new releases. We expect better graphics, better stories, and we expect them to fix the things that have already been criticized by players in the past. And although we cannot say that our expectations are always met, we can still find something exciting by the new version, something to keep pulling us in the game over and over again. Let’s see which are this year’s great stars.

Here Are 6 of the Most Anticipated Games of 2017

1. Resident Evil 7: Biohazard

Scheduled for release on January 24th, 2017, Resident Evil 7, Biohazard, the creepiest game on the market, promises a fair trade. While Resident Evil 6 flopped in 2016 on account of the investment made in combat, this version is different. It will cut back on the combat and focus more on the setting exploration for a more vivid and terrifying experience. The main change is the first-person perspective, making it even more thrilling, not to mention difficult to go through the whole thing. It will be compatible with the PS4, PlayStation VR, Xbox One and PC platforms.

2. For Honor

There is no clear date for the sequel of the South Park RPG game launched in 2014, but we know it will be in the first quarter of the year. Expectations are very high for this game which was received with great reviews back in 2014. This time, the kids are superheroes and you play from the perspective of a New Kid who is trying to fit in with them. There is a lot to choose from when customizing your character, including sides in conflicts and gender. Xbox One, PS4 and PC are the compatible platforms.
Sure, the list of game releases for this year is much longer than this and it could continue. However, we chose to focus on these 6 games in particular as many of the review pages were buzzing about them. Whether you are in it for the story, for the graphics, for the action or for the interaction with the other players, or even for the victory, you can always count on the virtual world to fuel your imagination and make it increasingly difficult to peel your eyes off the screen. So, in case you were already a fan anxiously waiting for these releases or someone who is just reading about them, we hope you get the chance to try them out and that they do not disappoint.
