Top 5 video games shown at the 2017 Paris Games Week


The 2017 edition of the Paris Games Week show was a chance for video game fans to take a look at some of the most eagerly-awaited video games of the moment. Taking place in Paris, the city of love, this year’s Paris Games Week featured innovative games like Apex Construct and the impressive-looking Monster Hunter World, amongst others. There surely was something for gamepad fans of all tastes to enjoy, so here follows a list of the top 5 video games shown at the 2017 Paris Games Week.

1. Far Cry 5

Far Cry fans were ecstatic when Ubisoft announced that a new game in the series was in the works, and would be hitting shelves in February next year. Also, the game has a beautiful new setting (the US state of Montana no less) and a twisted new villain intent on taking over the peaceful US region of Hope County.

It remains to be seen though, whether the new villain will be as charismatic as earlier Far Cry antagonists such as Pagan Min of Far Cry 4 were, or whether the game’s protagonist will be as interesting (at least you can customize your character and choose to play as a male or female here, which is a plus). And one aspect of the typical Far Cry gameplay that’s been improved is the co-op, as seen in the PGW 2017 trailer below. Actually, Far Cry 5 will let you play the entire single player campaign together with a friend, something which many players will welcome and which could make this Far Cry game one of the series’ best when it’s released next year.

Release date: February 27, 2018. Available on PS4, Xbox One and PC.
