The year 2015 has seen some great video games, with the likes of Metal Gear Solid V and The Witcher 3 bringing plenty of joy to gamers and getting rave reviews. But as the saying goes, perhaps the best is still to come, as new iterations of much-loved series like Assassin’s Creed and Fallout will be released before the end of this year. Here follows a list of the top video games which will be hitting the shelves come this fall 2015.
1. Call of Duty: Black Ops III
Few video game series are as popular as Call of Duty, and these military first-person action games shift millions of copies each year and have a legion of fans. And it looks like Call of Duty: Black Ops III will be as successful as its predecessors, as a poll carried out by the Nielsen agency has revealed that it is the most eagerly awaited game of this fall, edging out fan-favourite Fallout 4 for the honour.
And this is probably not only due to publisher Activision’s strong marketing, as they have released impressive cinematic trailers like the one below, but due to the game’s great campaign and multiplayer modes. And this year’s campaign will feature star talent like Christopher Meloni of American TV series Law & Order, and voice actors like Jeff Goldblum are also in. But Call of Duty has always been about the multiplayer, and the much loved zombie mode is back this year allowing gamers to battle it out with other players in a “1940’s film-noir era” according to developer Treyarch, which is a refreshing change of setting from the high-tech futuristic world of the main game.
Release date: November 6, 2015. Available on PS4, Xbox One, PC, PS3 and Xbox 360.
