The Top Upcoming Video Games Of 2018 And Beyond [updated] by Sherifastro(m): 03:51 pm On 3 Mar
2018 has finally arrived, and with it a year filled to the brim with amazing video games in every genre imaginable.

From the sprawling open world Western Red Dead Redemption 2, to the co-op dinosaur hunting Monster Hunter World; from major remakes like Shadow of the Colossus to brand new IPs like Days Gone; from charming JRPGs like Ni No Kuni II, to terrifying horror games like Agony, 2018 is shaping up to be an incredible year for games and gamers.



The following list is long but not exhaustive. It doesn’t cover games that haven’t been announced (like the inevitable Call of Duty from Treyarch) or that don’t have titles yet (like the Fire Emblem game coming to Switch.) I’ve also left mobile games out almost entirely. These probably deserve their own list.

Likewise, PC games release in such abundance (thousands on Steam each month!) that many indie PC titles have been left out. If I’ve missed anything you think ought to be included, please reply.

Now lets go...


Dragon Ball FighterZ

Release Date: Jan 26



Platforms: PC, Xbox One, PS4

The first proper fighting game in the Dragon Ball Z series, Dragon Ball FighterZ brings 3 vs 3 matches similar to Marvel vs Capcom with the ability to swap out characters during a fight.

Monster Hunter World

Release Date: Jan 26

Platforms: Xbox One, PS4

The first current-gen Monster Hunter entry, this also marks the series’ biggest world wide release. The franchise is much more popular in Japan, but hopefully break into the West with Monster Hunter World’s giant, seamless environments and online co-op.

Shadow Of The Colossus Remake

Release Date: Feb 6



Platforms: PS4

Whether or not you played the original Shadow of the Colossus, this remake (not remaster) looks absolutely gorgeous. One of the most creative games ever made, SotC pits you and your trusty horse against massive colossi who you then have to climb and subdue.

Kingdom Come: Deliverance

Release Date: Feb 15

Platforms: PC, Xbox One, PS4

I have some serious concerns about this game, but I do love the concept. It’s like Skyrim or The Witcher 3 but set in a realistic Medieval open-world. I love the idea of an expansive Medieval RPG but recent footage of wooden dialogue and less-than-stellar facial animations has me concerned that this is releasing too soon. Don’t be surprised if it’s delayed.

Secret Of Mana Remake

Release Date: Feb 15

Platforms: PC, PS4, PS Vita

Another remake (not remaster) of yet another classic, though Secret of Mana is a game that dates back to the SNES era. Still one of the best JRPGs of all time (with a lovely score) I am beyond hyped to return to the game. I may have to play the original version on my SNES Classic Edition first, however.

Metal Gear: Survive

Release Date: Feb 20

Platforms: PC, Xbox One, PS4

I’m not sure if I’m excited for Metal Gear: Survive or if what I’m feeling is morbid curiosity. It’s no secret that Konami and Metal Gear creator Hideo Kojima parted ways after Metal Gear Solid V. The question is whether Konami can make a good Metal Gear game without him. I think they can—theoretically—I’m just not sure this is that game. We shall see.

Moss

Release Date: Feb (?)

Platforms: PS VR

I’m not a huge fan of VR games. They still feel mostly gimmicky. But Moss, the story of a little mouse on a big adventure, looks incredibly charming. It’s one of those games I see and think “Why can’t this be just a regular game rather than a VR game?” But I’m crossing my fingers that it will pleasantly surprise us.

Re: The Top Upcoming Video Games Of 2018 And Beyond [updated] by Sherifastro(m): 03:59 pm On 3 Mar
Sea Of Thieves

Release Date: March 20



Platforms: PC, Xbox One

Sea of Thieves looks like a cool concept that’s maybe a few years too late. I want to believe that it will be a big hit for the Xbox One, but cartoony pirate co-op strikes me as something with fairly limited reach. I hope I’m wrong and the game is a smash hit that defies all expectations. At the same time, I think I’d be more excited for a big pirate game that was more solo-focused with co-op as an option.

Yakuza 6: The Song Of Life

Release Date: March 20

Platforms: PS4

I’ve never really gotten into the Yakuza series but that’s something I aim to change in 2018. I like Japanese games. I like crime games. I like action games. Sounds like Yakuza would be a good fit, though I’m not really sure where to start. Certainly this game has received rave reviews in Japan where it released in 2016, earning a 39/40 from Famitsu.

Valkyria Chronicles 4

Release Date: March 21

Platforms: PS4 (later on Switch/Xbox One)

I loved the last Valkyria Chronicles game. It’s part JRPG, part turn-based tactical third-person shooter, all set in a WWII-esque fictional conflict with tanks and rifles and engaging characters. The game picks up where the last one left off, as the Second Europan War is still being waged, but with new characters, better graphics and so forth. I’m very excited for this one.

A Way Out

Release Date: March 23

Platforms: PC, Xbox One, PS4

I’m not sure if A Way Out is going to be good or not, but it’s certainly an interesting concept. It’s a two-player couch co-op game that takes place in split-screen. The twist is that one side of the screen can be playing a cut-scene while the other side can still be playing, meaning both characters’ stories play out at the same time even as one character enters a rendered moment. Heavily choice based, it’s the story of two convicts who escape prison and go out on the road for a big adventure. The biggest reason to be excited about this one is the studio’s first game, Brothers: A Tale Of Two Sons, which remains one of the most emotionally poignant, mechanically fascinating indie adventure games I’ve played.

Ni No Kuni 2: Revenant Kingdom

Release Date: March 23

Platforms: PC, PS4

I loved everything about the first Ni No Kuni except for how tedious it became after a while. Combat, in particular, was a far too frequent chore. But the story, the characters, the animation, the fact that you’re basically playing a Studio Ghibli movie as a game—all of that was wonderful. My hope with the sequel is that they’ve fixed the combat issues and put together another game as charming as the first without all the tedium.

Far Cry 5

Release Date: March 27



Platforms: PC, Xbox One, PS4

More than likely, from all we’ve seen so far, Far Cry 5 is going to be a lot like 3 and 4. That’s a good thing and a bad thing. It’s a good thing because those games have a winning formula that’s a ton of fun to play: Crazy villain, big open world, lots of enemy bases to take down, and so forth. Lots of fun. On the other hand, maybe this formula has grown a bit stale. It would be neat to see the series take a bigger turn, much as did between 1 and 2 and between 2 and 3. Still, I’m excited to shoot psycho cultists in the land of my birth, Montana. And I’m excited to read all the silly hot takes on why the game is [fill in the blank with your politics and why this game goes too far doesn't go far enough etc.

Agony

Release Date: March 30

Platforms: PC, Xbox One, PS4

Agony looks terrifying. From what little I’ve seen of it, this is not going to be a horror game for the meek or faint of heart. The entire game is built around an interesting possession mechanic. You start out in Hell and can possess other people and later lesser and greater demons. Sounds interesting and looks freaky.
