The best upcoming games of 2017 (part 1)

Posted by Ercan Aslan 17/05/2017 Console News,

 

The games to watch on PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch,  from blockbusters to potential under-the-radar gems. It's rare that a year of games can start this strong, with multiple contenders that can be the GOTY. The best games of 2017 are launched already, but there's still a lot of games to look forward.

 

 

TEKKEN 7 (BUY)

 

Platform(s): PS4, Xbox One, PC
Release date: June 2, 2017 

 

Tekken 7 has been in Japanese arcades since early 2015, and it's taking its sweet time in making the transition to international appearance. Tekken 7 is the next iteration of Bandai Namco's famed 3D fighting series, bringing back veterans from the King of Iron Fist tournament alongside some newcomers, including Kazumi Mishima, Kazuya's mother who can perform literal tiger uppercuts with her beast companion. Expect plenty of heavy-hitting animations, devastating ground bounce combos, and bizarre backdrops.

 

 

CRASH BANDICOOT N. SANE TRILOGY

 

Platform(s): PS4
Release date: June 30, 2017

 

Rumors have been active for years about a new Crash Bandicoot, and the PS1-game is finally making his return in the Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy. More remake than remaster. The N. Sane Trilogy contains all the same fruit-collecting and precision-jumping actions, while introducing new textures, animation, and art, as well as checkpoint and save systems to be consistent. Crash Bandicoot is getting the respect and attention he rightly deserves.

 

 

AGENTS OF MAYHEM

 

Platform(s): PS4, Xbox One, PC
Release date: August 15, 2017

 

When you hear the name Volition, you know to expect something over-the-top and hilarious. The people who gave us Saints Row are now back with a new game with this new superhero game. Players can seamlessly switch between controlling the 12 characters. Pick three at a time and in an instant you’ll be able to equip yourself with a new set of superpowers and weapons. Which means so many combinations for fun.

 

 

MIDDLE-EARTH: SHADOW OF WAR

 

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

 

The open-world action in Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor easily showed that there would be a new sequel. Shadow of War brings back the undying ranger Talion and his fused wraith Celebrimbor. The stellar Nemesis system will be making a return, where orcs develop into bitter rivals over many battles, and new Nemesis Fortresses serve domains. You'll have your own loyal army at your disposal to raid strongholds.

 

 

DESTINY 2 (BUY)

Platform(s): PS4, Xbox One,
PCRelease date: September 8, 2017

 

We've only gotten cinematics of Destiny 2, but that's to kick the hype. After a devastating attack on The City, all of your Guardian's loot has been destroyed, but the Vanguard leaders you've looked to are still going strong, and seem ready to take the fight back to enemy forces new and old. Expect a better story than the first game, along with a open-world structure with room for civilians.

 

 

MARVEL VS. CAPCOM: INFINITE

 

Platform(s): PS4, Xbox One, PC
Release date: September 19, 2017

 

The entire Marvel vs. Capcom series is a fighting game factory, for some of combos, greatest upsets, and loudest screams ever. The fourth entry is on the way with Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite, with a host of mechanics changes to the familiar tag-team brawls between Capcom stars and Marvel's iconic heroes and villains. The three-fighter teams have been changed to 2v2, and assists have been removed entirely, replaced by character swaps mid-combo and unique buffs.

 

 

CALL OF DUTY: WW2 (BUY)

 

Platform(s): PS4, Xbox One, PC
Release date: November 3, 2017

 

Activision is finally taking COD back to World War 2. Call of Duty: WW2 puts you in the boots of two soldiers with the 1st Infantry Division, also known as "The Bloody First", who famously led the invasion of Normandy on D-Day. Expect lots of incoming airstrikes, tanks, and brutal Nazi skulls all seen from first-person. There's also a multiplayer story mode plainly named 'War' in addition to the blockbuster-grade single-player campaign and intensely competitive PvP multiplayer.

 

 

STAR WARS BATTLEFRONT 2

 

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

 

The rebooted Star Wars Battlefront laid a fantastic foundation for an FPS that makes players feel like supporting troops within scenes from the films, but Star Wars Battlefront 2 sounds like it'll be the real deal. On top of the expansive multiplayer conflicts - now with heroes pulled from all three film eras, this sequel includes a full-on single-player campaign, played from the perspective of Empire elite soldier Iden Versio.
