Without a doubt, it looks like 2018 could be a fantastic year for gaming. And there are plenty of great-looking releases on the horizon, from Red Dead Redemption 2 with its Wild West setting to Battlefield V’s epic action, so it’s likely video game fans will get to enjoy plenty of top-notch games in 2018. So without further ado, here follows a list of the top 21 video games releasing in 2018.
1. Red Dead Redemption 2
If there was one game which turned people’s heads back in 2010, that was Red Dead Redemption. And not only did Rockstar’s game feature a big, beautiful open-world for players to explore, but being a cowboy outlaw had never been so much fun in a video game.
This is why many Rockstar fans were ecstatic when Red Dead Redemption 2 was announced last year. And the game’s latest trailer suggests this will be a bigger, bolder and better open-world game than its predecessor.
Red Dead Redemption 2 also features a new protagonist – outlaw Arthur Morgan – a man whom you might imagine doesn’t have a heart of gold, and who’s running from the authorities and rival gangs who are after his hide. Also interesting is the fact that Red Dead Redemption 2 might ship with an online multiplayer component like GTA Online this fall – another reason to look forward to this Red Dead Redemption sequel this year then.
Release date: October 26, 2018. Available on PS4 and Xbox One.
