2015 has been a great year for video gaming, but 2016 looks like it holds a lot to be excited about. Below we’ve compiled a short list of some of the upcoming video games that we’re really excited about.
Using the art style of 1930’s cartoons, Cuphead’s trailer caught eyes at E3 2014, with many left disappointed that they weren’t able to get a hands on experience with the run and gun title. Cup head will allow players to repay a debt to the devil by gunning their way through continuous boss battles, also offering the choice of local co-operative play for those who want to bring a friend in on the fun.
The Last Guardian
Having become quite the story in the modern history of video gaming, many are unsure what to make of the 2016 release date that has been placed on The Last Guardian. This one has been pushed back so many times that it’s been an upcoming video game some people have been excited about for years now. Because I’m one of those people, I’m going to be optimistic and believe that The Last Guardian will be making an appearance on my PS4 in the coming year.
The Uncharted 4
While I’m a fan of the series, I was a little skeptical when Uncharted 4 was announced. The game play has become quite played out now and I would rather Naughty Dog put their talent into a new IP. That being said, the age of Nathan Drake in this one points to it being the last in the saga. New moves, a change in possible game play styles and a revamped multi player will hopefully ensure that the series is going out with a bang.
The Ratchet & Clank (2016)
Not just a remake, but an entire re-imagining of the original game in the series, this one also gets me a little skeptical. I am a huge fan of the Ratchet & Clank series but this one seemed like a cash-in for me, with the upcoming video game being brought out in line with the new film. This was made even worse by the fact the release date was then pushed back to the release date of the film. However, having seen the huge amount of footage released and the interviews with people who are working on it, I can see that they really have been working on this from the ground up, the graphics especially. As one person described it, “Now we know what it would look like to have a video game made by Pixar.”
The Dishonored 2 game
While the first game was released to moderate/good reviews, it was a video game I saw as having a huge amount of potential. The first person stealth mixed brilliantly with the action and the possibility to pick and choose what special powers you upgrade so you can play as you want worked great for me. Now, Dishonored 2 is on its way and hopefully it will live up to the chance for brilliance that was set down by the first game.
