Shadow of the Colossus Remake

You are put in the shoes of a young man named Wander. Arriving at a forbidden land, wander must travel beyond huge landscapes with a goal of bringing back the life of a girl named Mono.
Wander has to defeat sixteen massive beings, known as Colossi.
An interesting concept and theme.
This game is now being remade on PS4. Sony Worldwide Studios president Shuhei Yoshida in a recent interview said…
“It’s the same, but player preferences for controls and such change over time, so we’re working on implementing a more modernised way to play. And of course you can play with a feel of the original version, but what we’re doing is showing how great the original work is, using today’s technology.”
Release Date: Early 2018.
Metro Exodus is the third game in the Russian post-apocalyptic sequel.
This Metro game takes place across Russia and instead of the cold, snowy ruins, you’re put in the hot, dry grass. Instead of a narrow story, like previous Metro games, Exodus leans towards open world gameplay.
Executive producer Jon Bloch tells us a little about Metro Exodus.
“This will blend what we’ve done over the past two games, plus something that the core team at 4A Games has done in the past with the Stalker games. We’re not entirely open-world, then, it’s more sandbox survival and everything is tied together with an overarching storyline that still carries the player through. They’re still feel like they’re playing a Metro game.”
Exodus has dynamic seasonal mechanic, meaning you will encounter different enemies depending on the environment you’re in.
Release Date: Somewhere in 2018 on all platforms
Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus
The United States of America is now occupied by brutal Nazis.
In the world of Wolfenstein, Nazis won the war. In the previous game we thought our hero B.J. Blazkowicz died a fatal death but Blazkowicz is alive and kicking.
His partner Anya is pregnant with twins and Blazkowicz is passionately driven to build a free world for his children.
Teaming up with his old buddies, Blazkowicz intends to rid the plagued world of Nazis. We see old villains like Frau Engel who we thought had died, since her jaw was ruthlessly torn out.
I guess these Nazis don’t die so easily.
We see new feature and upgrades like a whole new super suit, more dual wielding options and tougher enemy types.
Release Date: October 27 2017
Middle earth: Shadow of War
Middle earth: Shadow of war is an action role-playing game developed by Monolith Productions.
Taking place after the epic Middle earth: Shadow of Mordor, it’s continuing on with the never dying ranger Talion.
Still inseparable to Elf Lord Celebrimbor’s spirit. This story tells us about Talion’s new forged ring of power. Talion’s ring of power is intended to help him become a Mighty King instead of a Dark Lord.
The nemesis system has been improved on, new enemies like fire-breathing Dragons and variations of Orc tribes.
Middle earth: Shadow of war is anticipated by many to be game of the year.

Days Gone is an open world action-adventure survival horror game by Sony Bend studio.
You’re put in the shoes of a ruthless biker named Deacon
Seeing gameplay footage of Days Gone, we sense a fair dose of The Last of Us injected into this game.
The plot behind Days Gone is still unclear. It could be our biker friend is looking for a cure or simply making his way throughout the world of destruction and sadness.
Either way, we’re excited to play this game.
Release Date: No release date yet.
God Of War
God of War is a fresh new take on the God of War series, development by Santa Monica Studio.
Gameplay has taken a drastic turn, Kratos no longer fights with his blades of chaos, instead he uses an axe which sounds a-lot less impressive.
It’s a magical axe (I know… that sounded a little corny) but this axe has abilities like inflicting a significant amount more damage that your usual axe. And Kratos can throw it and get it straight back like a boomerang.
One of the biggest changes in this soft reboot, is Kratos has a son named Atreus. Atreus isn’t like his father, he doesn’t like to kill or draw blood for whatever reason and he can talk to animals.
Kratos is training his son to become a warrior, telling his son to “not feel for his enemy.. close your heart to their desperation… close your heart to their suffering”
Kratos lives with his youthful son Atreus in the world of Norse Gods and takes the role a mentor.
Unfortunately a plot still isn’t clear yet.
Release Date: Early 2018
Spiderman gets its own standalone game, separate from franchised movies. You play as a more mature Spiderman who uses advanced gadgets to take down foes and catch helicopters from the sky.
Developed by Insomniac Games to create a mature Spiderman game, an older and experienced Peter Parker who’s mastered the art of crime fighting in the Big Apple.
Fresh new-take on Spider-Man, he’s developed a powerful spider-sense, vigorous skills, acrobatic abilities and advanced suit.
Spidy has new and improved features such as web-slinging, wall-crawling, parkour and new combat system. All this taking place in-game with blockbuster sequences.
Spiderman’s movements are fully physics based. Meaning as he’s swinging around the world, all objects Spider-Man encounters instantly adapts and naturally flows with his movements.
You will encounter familiar characters like King Pin and never-seen before characters.
New Spider-Man PS4’s plot is still unclear but what we do know, it won’t be an origin story.
Most anticipated game of E3 2017 that closed Sony’s E3 2017 show. Sony went out with a bang.
Release Date: Somewhere in 2018
