In this part we will explain more amazing games that will launch this year. So here is part 2 of the best upcoming games in 2017. Stay tuned for part 3 and don't forget to check part 1!

 

 

SOUTH PARK: THE FRACTURED BUT WHOLE

 

Platform(s): PS4, Xbox One, PC
Release date: 17 October 2017

 

South Park has a special talent for satirizing events and trends that happens in real life, so it’s no surprise that this latest game is focused on mocking Hollywood with superheroes and super-teams. The forever-young children of South Park are at war, all dressed up as their favorite characters for tactical RPG combat. South Park: The Fractured But Whole will have 12 classes to choose from, and as the new kid you’ll get to pick a side in the conflict and a gender. Farts are making a comeback too.

 

 

STATE OF DECAY 2

 

Platform(s): Xbox One, PC
Release date: TBC 2017

 

If The Walking Dead has taught us anything, it will be the survivors and building up a community that is essential to surviving the zombie apocalypse. State of Decay 2 will take those values to heart with co-op for up to four players, provided you all agree to work together instead of backstabbing. To build up your encampment, you'll need to scavenge on foot or four wheels. The trailer of State of Decay 2 looked promising, so here's to hoping that the gameplay lives up the cinematic.

 

 

GWENT: THE WITCHER CARD GAME

 

Platform(s): PS4, Xbox One, PC
Release date: TBC 2017

 

By popular demand, CD Projekt is breaking out the fan-favorite card minigame from The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt into its own CCG so you can fall in love with its two-player, turn-based strategy all over again. If you're not the competitive type, Gwent will have a full-fledged single-player campaign that could last upwards of 10 hours, with characters from the original RPG brought back for more voiceovers.

 

 

FRIDAY THE 13TH: THE GAME

 

Platform(s): PS4, Xbox One, PC
Release date: TBC 2017

 

Friday the 13th: The Game has that slasher brand recognition. Players take on the role of the hockey-masked, machete-swinging Jason Voorhees or the Camp Crystal Lake counselors (up to seven cooperating to survive) that Jason will be ruthlessly stabbing and slicing. Jason will even be able to teleport around the campgrounds at will, to really drive home that sensation of running from a killer. 

 

 

GOD OF WAR

 

Platform(s): PS4
Release date: TBC 2017

 

Kratos has set on a new mythology to conquer: Norse. The fourth main entry in the legendarily PlayStation series, God of War, it looks like Kratos needs to control his endless rage, as he acts as the father figure for a young, unnamed boy with lightning powers. You'll still slay plenty of fantastical creatures, but expect a lot more character development and quieter moments.

 

 

UNCHARTED: THE LOST LEGACY (BUY)

 

Platform(s): PS4
Release date: TBC 2017

 

In The Lost Legacy you play as Chloe who teams up with Nadine Ross to track down an ancient Indian artefact. Unlikely, as the pair will likely assume the same dynamic as Nathan and Sam in the main game. It’s more Uncharted, which is a great thing, and you don’t have to own the original to play.

 

 

DAYS GONE

 

Platform(s): PS4
Release date: TBC 2017

 

The enemies in this open-world post-apocalypse aren't undead - the so-called 'Freakers' are actually infected humans who have gone feral and seem eager to devour our hero Deacon. What really sets the Freaker horde apart is just how many can be chasing you at once; there are times when they're practically flooding out of the environment, and all you can do to survive is simply run. Another PS4 Pro optimised game that promises to look incredible.
