Beyond Good and Evil 2 Gameplay Reveal

Beyond Good & Evil 2 first gameplay footage has been revealed that provides a brief look at how fight in space will be like.

At E3 2017, Ubisoft's upcoming action-adventure title Beyond Good and Evil 2 was teased once again, which is a sequel to original Beyond Good and Evil. Some of the very early stage of gameplay mechanics video of this title is recently released as developers offered up a sneak peak on what the players are getting into when it finally comes out. While they open up for fans of the series after a long break, we got a glimpse at some multiplayer combat action and how a few other stuff works out in-game.

Here is a work-in-progress video that has the gameplay footage showing some played out combat moves and regular co-op activities.




Though this clip is slightly longer than two minutes length, actual gameplay is there for only about 45 seconds. You can even notice a watermark on the video marking it as a “pre-alpha” version of the project. We see a number of different spaceships flying around and how players can also use jetpacks for transportation. Both your role as a pirate in action and piloting those ships are essentially required for two type of game-playing. You cannot just discount one skill for another.

BGE2 promises to be an overall improvement over its predecessor and deliver an experience which is enormous. One of the prime features that we saw in this clip is that how you are allowed to move between your inner or outer surroundings, just like 2016's No Man's Sky from Hello Games. A tight Afro sporting black female named Shani remains the focus for the entire clip, mostly displaying her skills with staff. The fighting style may reminiscent a bit more like the first game but it is better now.

Not only there will be collision between massive airships, it promises to bring back melee sword fight from the original BGE. Players are on a solar system named System 3 and aside from being a pirate captain, roles like medic and spy are there to play but whether or not those tasks would be carried out by AI or other participants are yet to be confirmed. Though the presentation above was relatively short, Ubisoft promises to unveil a lot more at E3 2018 with more details.

There was almost an hour long developer live-stream on Twitch, where creative director Michel Ancel talked about what they have been up to with BGE2.



During last year's E3 media showcase, interested players were invited by developers to join Space Monkey Program, which will allow those individuals to first-hand experience of playing it and sharing their different views. This is more like an inbound beta test that also reveals that the game will be available on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One upon release even though it is not mentioned anywhere else or no confirmed platforms are announced yet. If the game will be ported to Nintendo Switch or not is still unclear.

The Division Movie Signed Deadpool 2 Director

In the industry of film-making, director David Leitch (Atomic Blonde, Deadpool 2) is becoming a big name these days. Started as stunt coordinator for movies like Captain America: Civil War and The Bourne Ultimatum, he later co-directed John Wick in 2014. Then he took on two films to direct on his own. Seeing his growing reputation, Ubisoft decided to pick him to direct their upcoming movie adaptation of The Division.

Tom Clancy's The Division was based on an aftermath of a smallpox virus outbreak in New York that killed millions. It was spread through paper money during Black Friday and ended up turning Manhattan into a quarantine zone. Whatever remains of the society now looks up to Special Agents from Strategic Homeland Division for help surviving. Actor Jake Gyllenhaal (Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time, Source Code) and Jessica Chastain (Mama, Zero Dark Thirty) are already cast in lead roles for the film.

Originally Stephen Gaghan (Gold, Syriana) was announced as director for the film but since he stepped down, Leitch is roped in as his replacement. As his first solo movie, he directed Charlize Theron starrer Atomic Blonde that came out in 2017. His second project Deadpool 2 is awaiting release on May 16, 2018 featuring stars like Ryan Reynolds, Josh Brolin, Morena Baccarin and Zazie Beetz. Soon, David Leitch will get busy with Atomic Blonde 2 and Fast & Furious spin-off movie Hobbs & Shaw before working on this movie.

When developer Ubisoft released The Division back in 2016 PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, it has grown to become one of their best-selling titles ever by earning $300 million worldwide. This led to a sequel; The Division 2 in development that was announced last month. Adapting the game into a movie has now been in works for too long, even after Gaghan was hired as a director by Ubisoft Motion Pictures.

For years, translating video game into motion picture or any other media has led to a history of train wreck. Things are changing for good with Netflix’s Castlevania series and 1986 arcade game movie version of Rampage lately. Although The Division does not contain a plot that would offer character development but it surely has the potential to appeal to audience as a great action movie otherwise. With names like Chastain and Gyllenhaal attached to this project, it may finally break the haunting video game curse.

Thus, video game fans are receiving a company-wide crossover of tactical shooter Ghost Recon Wildlands and stealth game Splinter Cell. Sam Fisher will arrive at Wildlands in the next free update Special Operations 1 for one of his black-ops missions.

Special Operation 1 will help improve Ghosts' stealth skill as they follow legendary Sam Fisher in the field at work. These new challenges will make them more tactical, which actually helps because Ghost Recon Wildlands is a tactical shooter. It wasn't quite long ago when 90's renowned movie monster, The Predator came to tangle with the Ghosts in a PvE mission. Although he was a bit hard on the elite squad and gave them a tough time, they sure learned a thing or two going up against him.

Months ago, we heard a rumor flying of Splinter Cell franchise getting a reboot and we still got no confirmation on that. However, we are glad that Sam Fisher has found a way to come back in action once again even though if it is for a crossover. Voice actor Michael Ironside also returns to portray this iconic character of the series. We might even see him working with special agents of Tom Clancy's The Division in mid-crisis Manhattan of the future shortly afterwards.

Far Cry 5 Breaks Franchise Sales Records

Developer Ubisoft is pretty happy these days as their recent release of Far Cry 5 from long-running first-person action game series has just become the best-selling title in entire franchise. First week sell of this title surpassed double the amount than what Far Cry 4 made upon its initial release. More than half of these sales percentage came from digital purchase though. Before this title, only Tom Clancy's The Division saw such grand launch as another Ubisoft-made game.

The studio has more to add along with those record-breaking sales numbers, because there are more to put in. Following the release of Far Cry 5, over 55,000 hours of gameplay was streamed on Twitch and videos on YouTube have crossed 117 million views. These two are both records for any Ubisoft game to have within a week of their launch. This clearly shows how positively players of Far Cry community have taken the game and their enthusiasm is coming out in numbers.

Aside from the sales bump, players are also leaving mostly positive feedback towards the game. It also becomes a best-selling title in UK as well. There is also some crazy statistics data gathered from the game like how many dynamite sticks have been thrown or how fake brands were created solely for the game and all you can possibly think of. Official Ubisoft Blog has recently released an infographic chart that has listed all of them and we are leaving it right below for you to check out.

Far Cry 5 IT Movie Easter Eggs

We already know now that Ubisoft's action-adventure first-person shooter Far Cry 5 pits you against a militaristic doomsday cult called Eden's Gate as a rookie sheriff's deputy of fictional Hope County, Montana. What we recently discovered is that it also has two indications to a certain creepy character from Stephen King’s 1986 horror novel that has been adapted to a successful TV Series and a live-action film. Yes, we are talking about Pennywise the Dancing Clown.

No, we are not trying to raise your hopes by indicating that "IT" from King’s story to appear on Far Cry 5 or actor Bill Skarsgård portraying a maniacal cult member with his frightening voice. In fact, there are two clear Easter Eggs for the keen eyes, which has become quite a buzz for the gamers who are trying to find it for themselves.

IT Movie Easter Egg

RELATED: Far Cry 5: Inside Eden’s Gate Short Film Announced

The first reference you will come across is a shiny red balloon just outside a sewer pipe near John’s crop circle and it seems that the developers have picked it up from Andy Muschietti's 2017 movie. Although, Pennywise the Dancing Clown was not waiting on the other side, many have chosen not to enter at their own risk. O’Hara’s Haunted House holds the second Easter Egg for players who pass through halls to discover another red balloon beside a chair as a note that reads:

“You have the fear of god you need the of THE DEVIL you need to FEAR IT you take a young person and take their body and mind you use their empty corpses to find more young people whose bodies you can steal no no NO no no you will wish your mind was scooped out of your body because when IT is through with your bodies YOU WON’T WANT THEM ANYMORE.”
This disturbing note pretty obviously nods to Pennywise by mentioning "IT" on last paragraph. Hope County, Montana is already a weird place with its very own mysteries surrounded by Eden's Gate cult and now these references adds up to that list. If you play the game, you will notice after a while that there is not a single child around. Is it because Pennywise has left the town long ago when he was done with the kids or these hints crossovers with Stephen King’s Multiverse?

Far Cry 5 Launch Gameplay Trailer

The fifth installment of Ubisoft's action-adventure first-person shooter franchise is about to come out sooner than you think and we got a launch gameplay trailer ahead of it. Yes, we are talking about Far Cry 5, which developed by both of Ubisoft's Berlin and Montreal division. There are a few things that are making fans excited about the game and then there are controversies but eventually it's coming out and will probably make an impact as well.

A narrator starts telling that despite being named Hope County, how a militaristic doomsday cult named Eden's Gate take it over believing the end of the world is coming soon. The heart of the cult is the seed family who are forcing people to devote themselves to their cause and it's like the Four Horsemen of Apocalypse trying to take over the town. Jacob Seed serves the sect by recruiting, John is the Baptist, Faith acts as a pacifist to keep people in line and then there is the leader of the cult, a preacher named Joseph Seed.

Splinter Cell Upcoming Reboot?

One of Ubisoft’s old crown jewel was the award-winning stealth video game series of Splinter Cell and it truly set a landmark upon its debut in 2002. The franchise gave us some pretty good story of black-ops agent Sam Fisher and unbelievable stealth in gameplay, which made the series into the legend it has become; spawning games like Chaos Theory and Pandora Tomorrow.

Splinter Cell Upcoming Reboot?

The last game of the Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell series was released five years ago from now and that was 2013's Splinter Cell: Blacklist. The game took a slightly different path than the other titles of the series and replaced Michael Ironside as voice actor for protagonist Sam Fisher. Not surprisingly, the game heavily under-performed and Ubisoft was not quite happy with the reception it got. So, considering these facts they shelved the project and moved on with a Splinter Cell movie adaptation but even that faced some trouble with scripts.

RELATED: Far Cry 5: Inside Eden’s Gate Short Film Announced

However, fans of the Splinter Cell series may rejoice a little as an apparent Amazon listing of Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell 2018 showed up under Ubisoft for a very brief time and eventually taken down even sooner. Before the takedown, a Reddit user named HurtPotato was able to take evidence for the internet. The game will most likely be released for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, while a Nintendo Switch version is uncertain.

Since E3 2018 is getting very closer, we can only assume that Ubisoft just don't want to reveal anything at all before they do on that big event. That means, fans of the franchise can expect official news regarding Splinter Cell this summer and at this point an E3 reveal would only make sense for a game that has been on a hiatus for this long. Because, we definitely are not going to have another Assassin’s Creed game this year after Assassin’s Creed Origins and Ubisoft will look for something to fill in.

RELATED: The Division 2 Announced

Last year at E3, Yves Guillemot, CEO of Ubisoft stated that they haven't forgotten about Splinter Cell in response to a question regarding the future of the series. Looks like things are all adding up themselves and we just need some official announcement right now. We hope that the developer make a great comeback in 2018 with the newest Splinter Cell title. Also, we are hoping to get some better look at upcoming The Division 2 that was announced a few days ago.

The Division 2 Announced

Developer Ubisoft's online-only action role-playing game Tom Clancy's The Division came out in 2016 after three years of revealing the title. The game was based on an outbreak in New York City as a group of Strategic Homeland Division agents called The Division gets into the situation to bring order. Recently, Ubisoft has officially announced that a sequel; The Division 2 is currently under development.

This game got some potential and people loved it when it was a brand-new release but that quickly changed when there were almost no post-game content or frequent updates. Within the next few months, The Division saw a huge drop of player count, which is 93 percent in total. This is considerably tragic for a game that broke the record for first-day sales of Ubisoft and was full of promises. The studio then managed to raise the number a little higher with regular updates.

RELATED: Far Cry 5: Inside Eden’s Gate Short Film Announced

Hopefully, their initial obliviousness had taught Ubisoft to not repeat the mistake of neglecting a franchise post-release and they got back at their feet again. Now they can effectively apply those lessons learned from their past mistakes for course correction as they bring the sequel. A single image of The Division 2's logo was first leaked on Twiiter by Jason Schreier of Kotaku and then the developers officially confirmed the leak after a few hours.



Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 is being made by Massive Entertainment and Red Storm Entertainment, collaborating with all the fractions of Ubisoft. Creative director Julian Gerighty of Massive Entertainment states that they always envisioned The Division as part of a larger series and thus comes the sequel. With that being said, we can only guess for a third installment if The Division 2 becomes a successful project.

RELATED: Far Cry 5 Season Pass Details

The developers are going to use an upgraded version of the Snowdrop engine, which was used to create the first game and was unique to it. This is a very good point for the sequel as the impressive graphics and gameplay of the first game was what made it popular. Besides, they have possibly learned a lot from their mistakes and we only hope that they make better use of that learning, which also means more contents and expected updates.

RELATED: Rainbow Six Siege: Outbreak Details

Though developer Ubisoft has a habit of announcing games too early, we heard that The Division 2 will be fully revealed at E3 2018. On the plus side, they have decided to continue their support for the first game even after the Year 2 Celebration, which includes major initiatives like arranging global events and Xbox One X enhancements. Let's just hope they don't shelve The Division 2 for three years before release like its predecessor.

Rainbow Six Siege Outbreak Event Live Now

The Year 3 of Ubisoft's tactical shooter Rainbow Six Siege, Operation Chimera is about to spice things up like never before starting today, because the brand-new cooperative time event called Outbreak is going live now and it brings all the excitement and surprise on the table for the Rainbow team. Plus, the game adds two new French and Russian counter-terrorism Operators to the fold.

Starting from March 6, this four week-long Outbreak Event is going to put the skills of the best operators suited for this job on test. Till now, Outbreak mode was only available on the test servers of Rainbow Six Siege from last month and now that it has gone live, we will meet the elite Rainbow team at Truth or Consequences, New Mexico as it is taken over by a new breed of hostiles that the operators have never encountered before.

RELATED: Rainbow Six Siege New Operators Lion and Finka

Outbreak is the co-op event to play out with an extent of three players and you have to carefully choose your team from a selected group of Operators as weapons and gadgets unique to them can either give you an advantage on the battlefield over your new enemy types or it can set you off balance. It would be for better if you can assemble a balanced team of three with adjustments of defensive and offensive capabilities in them.

Considering the new situation Operation Chimera presents, Operator who can revive teammates who are down but not yet out would be a huge perk. On that regard, Doc or new Operator Finka would be a good choice. The added benefit of picking up Finka is her team-buffing ability called Adrenal Surge. In general cases, shotguns are used to blast through walls but you will find some good use of it against the gruesome foes of Outbreak mode and Tachanka’s Mounted LMG will come in handy for that.

Outbreak brings five unique types of enemies to the table and not any one of them should be taken lightly. The most frequently encountered enemies throughout Outbreak Event have to be the Grunt. The one with spikes and yellow bubbles are the Breacher who loves to breach through your barricades and then explode. Then there are faster enemies called Apex, the ones who would try to trap you are Rooters and hulking sized Smasher.

Outbreak is not for shooting down hostile infected swarm but to uncover the mystery of the carnage that beset on the city of Truth or Consequences. The event will be live from March 6 to April 3 on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One as you test your skills out in a whole new situation. Since this is no longer a fight against terrorism, the same sort of tactics is better left off and you better form some new ones. Whatever you do, take down your enemies as quickly as possible and build a better defense.

He scans the entire map with an aerial drone called EE-One-D for potential enemies and pin-points their location with it. If any member of the attacking team even takes a step, the drone identifies their movement in real-time, making it easy for Lion to take them out. Once he activates it as you can see a live countdown on the screen and should not take a step but you can rotate if you want.

The three brand-new expansion packs that will come with the Far Cry 5 Season Pass want to give you some uncanny experience that you didn't really saw coming. Apparently, there are more in line aside from these three and one of them will be named Blood Dragon.

As obvious as the name is, The Dead Living Zombies DLC will pit you against hordes of relentless undead armies in a zombie-infected wasteland and your survival will depend on your skills. You will be facing the hostile fires of the Vietcong fighters in Hours of Darkness, set in Vietnam. In Lost on Mars expansion, you will discover yourself stranded on the titular red planet fighting off giant alien spiders to save thyself.

Also, the critically acclaimed installment of the series, Far Cry 3 also returns through the Season Pass and takes you back to Rook Islands. Ubisoft has updated the original game that introduced us with the enigmatic Vaas and included as Far Cry 3 Classic Edition with this package. Nostalgic fans of Far Cry 3 can now go back to enjoy their favorite game once again and so are the new generation of players with this remastered version.




Since game Season Pass allows the owners to enjoy some privileges like no other, you can take your tour at the Rook Islands in the single-player campaign four weeks in advance before anyone else can until Far Cry 3 Classic Edition is available in market for sale on summer 2018 only if you hold a copy.

Far Cry 5 is confirmed to release on March 27 for PC, PlayStation 4  and Xbox One. You can either pick up Far Cry 5 Gold Edition that has the Season Pass as a part of it or purchase it separately. The digital version of the content will cost you only $89.99 and you have to spend $99.99 if you are looking for a physical copy.

Rainbow Six Siege: Outbreak Details

Ubisoft's tactical shooter Rainbow Six Siege has been based known for its parallel run with reality so far but that thing is changing very soon. With the release of upcoming Outbreak event, the series will step into the sci-fi genre and probably even meet aliens. Yes, visitors from outer-space are about to step foot and the elite Rainbow team will have an encounter with the strange visitors on unfriendly turfs.

Rainbow Six Siege: Outbreak and Space Capsule

You can stop looking suspicious at us and take a quick look at this newly released short-clip from developer/publisher Ubisoft titled "Space Capsule" to find out if we are kidding or not.




Now that we have successfully established that neither Ubisoft, nor us were not playing cuckoo about the alien matter, let's get onto more details about it. Outbreak is a forthcoming co-op event from the third year of content of Rainbow Six Siege. During Operation Chimera, the event was teased and two brand-new operators, one of whom is specially trained for biological and chemical attacks. All we lacked was information on what sort of quarantined area they will be going into.

Initially, these clues and the biohazard sign on the promotional teaser image suggested that the counter-terrorism operatives of Rainbow Six team will be tasked to take down a zombie epidemic but with the new "Space Capsule" trailer, that changes. So, instead of an undead threat, they will be dealing with extraterrestrial menaces. Apparently, the trouble is originated with a recovered Russian spacecraft in a small town of New Mexico.

An alien parasite that came out of an old Soviet space capsule called the Apex starts transforming the locals into hostile beings. As the extraterrestrial threat starts terrorizing the populace, Smoke, Ying, Buck, Kapkan, Ash, Doc, Tachanka and Glaz will be joined by French Operator Lion and a Russian Operator Finka on a mission to the town of Truth or Consequences. This means, these are the only playable Operators for the Outbreak event and a team of three Operators will be sent in.

Ubisoft has seemingly avoided the word "zombies" in their promotions for and instead are calling them people turning into "horrific creatures" by aliens. There will be five unique types of them with their distinctive abilities for the hot zone specialists Rainbow Six team to take down. Most recently, the developers have also played with the idea of introducing alien threats to another of their real-life like tactical shooter Ghost Recon Wildlands by dropping popular sci-fi character The Predator from the 1987 movie of the same name.

Outbreak offers you Normal and Pandemic difficulty levels, both having different game-playing style. In Pandemic mode, not only you will come across tough enemies but you can catch on some friendly fires too. That makes your communication a vital point of the game and you need positional awareness at all times. Since your target won't bother getting shot a few times before taking a dig at you, start using the blockades and reinforcements from your surrounding environment smartly.

There are three large exclusive maps to explore that are designed for the purpose for co-op gameplay. With dangers lurking in every corner, the trademark "environmental destruction" of the game is still there for you to blow up and create holes in the wall too. Plus, don't forget about the weapons and uniform cosmetic packs for this timed-event.

The month-long Outbreak event along with Rainbow Six Siege Year 3 will begin on March 6 and will draw conclusion of the co-op on April 3. The content will be available on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One right from the beginning. So, it's at least four weeks of stay in the Quarantine Zone fighting those mutated horrors. While playing Operation Chimera on Rainbow Six Siege technical test servers, players can try out Outbreak from February 20 before it completely releases though.

Even though the expansion is set afterwards the main game, you can just start with The Hidden Ones at any point. However, it will be well advised for players to reach at least level 40. This DLC will help you reach up to level 45 so that Bayek can further push his limits as he goes. Four Legendary weapons and couple of other non-Legendary weapons are also introduced with new mounts. The best thing of this DLC pack is that, if you get back to the main campaign, your progress will follow you there.

While players around the world was hyped with games like Call of Duty: WWII, Destiny 2, Horizon Zero Dawn, Super Mario Odyssey and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, many far greater titles were also announced and made headlines while left the bedazzled spectators in waiting for them to come out this year.

Capcom is bringing the biggest and the best version of Monster Hunter game with the latest title of the series, Monster Hunter: World. Gaining a massive fan-base from all over the world, the game has gotten players on the edge of their seats for some time and these days, the popularity of the Monster Hunter series is not only limited to Japan anymore.




Hunting ferocious monsters while wielding large weapons and crafting tough armor to save your skin has never been this much fun before. You may not start playing this game as a fan but it will soon turn you into one if you give it some time. Plus, it will give you the multiplayer experience that you've been yearning for years.

2. Far Cry 5 (PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One)
Ubisoft's latest installment from the Far Cry series comes the newest sequel of the action-adventure first-person shooter; Far Cry 5. Since their last title of the series, Far Cry 4 was more of a close re-incarnation of the third game and they were chastised by the fans for it, Ubisoft has emphasized on bringing enough change to prevent that from happening again. The game has been delayed for several times now because of the recent unstable state in American politics to avoid unwanted issues.




This is the first time the game took its open-world to USA and you may expect a little less wildlife around this new location with rural setting. When the game comes out, your job is to deal with the doomsday cult of Hope County known as Eden's Gate, formed by a radical preacher named Joseph Seed. This new approach to the established franchise may just work fine but we have to wait some more to be sure about it completely.

3. Red Dead Redemption 2 (PlayStation 4, Xbox One)
Looks like fans of the Western-themed action-adventure cannot just wait for the tie of 2018, when they will get their hands on Red Dead Redemption 2. Though very little to no significant details about the game are out yet but players who've played Red Dead Redemption and had a good time are already dying on anticipation for the sequel.




As outlaw Arthur Morgan, players will experience an extensive story campaign and possibilities are that there will be online features. For now, the game is only limited to console players only but who knows if developer Rockstar Studios have any future plans to release the game on PC or not! We can only hope and wait for that.

4. God of War

4. God of War (PlayStation 4)
The first PlayStation exclusive game that entered the chart is Sony's newest release from the God of War series. Spartan warrior and a vengeful demigod Kratos returns to god-slaying business once again with the title simple called God of War. After slaying all the Greek gods, Olympians and Titans in previous installments, Kratos has set his sights on the gods of Norse myth. From the E3 press conference two years back, we haven't been able to gather too much of information about the game.




Since this one is a reboot on the original continuation after God of War III, some even regards it as God of War 4 as well. The game has largely revamped its gameplay and made major improvement on that part of simple hack n' slash it was mostly based on. Now that e is a father, his "rage meter" also constantly fluctuates during his quest. Perhaps, this new take on the game far from the original series may eventually bring it back to the glory it deserves.

5. Sea of Thieves (PC, Xbox One)
Set on the heart of Caribbean, developer Rare's upcoming pirate-themed action-adventure cooperative multiplayer Sea of Thieves is one of the promising entry on the list even though many believes that it has the same potential of falling onto its face as it has the qualities of rising above all. Many “realistic” elements of the pirate culture are brought on board that players would enjoy with these marine outlaws.




If you hang out with the right crews then this loot-hunting multiplayer could be a great fun of your life. Whether you love to hunt for treasures or attack your rival crews, Sea of Thieves will never cease to entertain you. You can also customize your crews and cruise as you see fit before you set off exploring islands and caves. PlayStation 4 owners have to sit this one down for the moment as this one is only limited to PC and Xbox One right now.

6. Crackdown 3 (PC, Xbox One)
With Sony releasing so many fan-favorites this year for their home console, Microsoft Studios had to bring something to the table and Crackdown 3 was their pick that actually made it to the top. An action-adventure game set in an advanced, futuristic Metropolis, this one is the third chapter of the franchise that is coming after nearly eight years of its predecessor and that was back in 2010.




This one is not a game where a back-story actually matters that much or anyone really cares, Crackdown 3 is all about the superhero-like protagonists of that world jumping and crushing stuffs from their surrounding open-world environment. Though the game will also be released on PC, it surely will make use of the features of Xbox One. So, you get onto a spree of destruction with your hands behind the wheel of these hi-tech Agents once the game comes out.

7. Kingdom Hearts III

7. Kingdom Hearts III (PlayStation 4, Xbox One)
The last game that we ever played from Square Enix's Kingdom Hearts series was twelve years ago and in the mean time a handful of spin-off games and re-releases came out based on the original. Luckily, we are not having any of those and a full title is being released as Kingdom Hearts III. Donald, Goofy and Sora will be out in quest for the "guardians of light" to oppose the evil villain Master Xehanort.




The latest release will explore other classic worlds of Disney like Big Hero 6, Tangled and Toy Story. The protagonists of the story will have new abilities, improved combat system and five party members are now allowed to join for more epic battles. Unfortunately, the game is only meant for consoles and so PC gamers cannot seemingly take part in the adventure. With the release of Kingdom Hearts III, Disney and Square Enix is looking to make a sure score this year.

8. Dragon Ball FighterZ (PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One)
Literally thousands of anime loving fans were blown out of their minds when they first learned of Dragon Ball FighterZ, a fighting game from Arc System Works and Bandai Namco. Usually, the latter company makes Dragon Ball based video game titles and Arc System taking over on such a project was a bit hard for many to digest. However, the end result is a true spectacles because they really get it right for the first time in never before, thus giving Marvel Vs. Capcom series a run for their money.




From the design to the fighting nature of the Dragon Ball universe, everything is so much accurate that it's nearly unbelievable. Popular characters of the series like Goku, Vegeta and the rest of the roster are going to be available for you to best your skills in a fight. While the game is 2.5D, everything is actually rendered in 3D and the end result looks exact anime-like. For this amazing feat, Arc System Works truly deserves our praise and we cannot see any reason why the game will not rule on all platforms.

9. A Way Out

9. A Way Out (PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One)
This one is almost certainly the only game in our list that actually kept heads down until E3 2017 and no one may have even heard about it ever. Other than the people who worked on the game, A Way Out from Hazelight Studios and Electronic Arts, none other was aware of the development. It is simply an action-adventure game from a third-person perspective, where you play through a split-screen and attempt for a prison break.




You will partner-up with another player whom you can randomly pick from online or you can just ask your best friend to play it with you. All you will be doing is try to escape from a prison where you two are kept in and the split-screen will give you a re-defined experience of co-op games. Critics are already in favor of this game and many players are already feeling hyped. So, let's see if this one actually makes it big upon debut.

anthem game pc
10. Anthem 

10. Anthem (PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One)
For the sake of the Anthem game project, Bioware and EA have literally killed the Mass Effect series and put all the money and effort intended for. Following the unexpected sales drop Mass Effect: Andromeda has suffered, the company decided to invest their resources somewhere else. The creators of Anthem were really pushed to create a better quality open-world for this game, which will not disappoint the players.




Whatever little peak the developers have shown us till date makes it look all promising as far as the hero flies wearing those cool Javelin exosuit concerns. Now, whether or not Anthem turns out to be a successful project for them is just a matter of time to find out. Good news is that the game comes to all consoles and PC, so everyone who is excited about it can at least try it out for once.

All the game that had the close potential to make it to the list is Detroit: Become Human, Days Gone, Metro: Exodus, The Last of Us Part II, Marvel’s Spider-Man, State of Decay 2 and Shenmue III. Being PlayStation exclusives and also two of the most prominent release of 2018, the exclusion of both The Last of Us Part II and Marvel’s Spider-Man seemed pretty abnormal considering how crazy fans were about the games and how much promising they are. Code Vein, Yoshi, Darksiders III, Metroid Prime 4 and Psychonauts 2 also couldn't get into the top 10 for some unknown reason or perhaps fans were less enthusiastic about them in real than we thought.

We were surprised the most when maestro Hideo Kojima's newest project, the upcoming Death Stranding video game did not make itself count either. However, we strongly believe if there were any disbelief or doubts among the fans about the game, they will be surprised to see how wrong they were once the game makes its debut.
