4. Days Gone
Set in the US Pacific Northwest, this zombie game could be right up your alley if you’re a fan of PlayStation hits like The Last of Us. And we already saw Days Gone at last year’s E3 show, where it undoubtedly was one of the top highlights. This surely looks like it will feature very nice visuals and engaging gameplay, although it remains to be seen whether its story and characters will be as good as those of the best PS4 games to date. But hopefully what we see at this year’s E3 will convince us that this could be one of the year’s top video game hits when it ships in late 2017.
5. Destiny 2
The original Destiny was one of 2014’s biggest hits, thanks to its engaging first-person gameplay and exciting raids and strikes. Although Bungie’s game was criticized for being a little short on content, and lacking a solid story and characters you could relate to. This is something that the team behind this game appears to be focusing on, with this Destiny sequel not only featuring a better in-game narrative but also a more appealing cast of characters, including favourites from the first game like Nathan Fillion’s Cayde-6. Add to this better and deeper gameplay, and Destiny 2 could certainly turn out to be the online multiplayer game of the year when it launches this September.
6. Detroit: Become Human
This was one of the most promising games seen at last year’s E3, thanks to its stunning graphics and top-notch characters. Of course, designer David Cage and his team at Quantic Dream are renowned for their superb adventure games like Heavy Rain and Indigo Prophecy (aka Fahrenheit in Europe).
And now Quantic Dream is developing an adventure game set in a futuristic, sci-fi world, with a plot that might remind you of Blade Runner. Actually, sentient androids in this future world have begun feeling emotions… Some have turned violent though, leading to the authorities employing android hunters to track them down and finish them off. And Detroit: Become Human surely looks like it could be one of the year’s E3 highlights and one game we are anxiously looking forward to for sure.
