  • Publisher: CD Projekt
  • Platforms: PC, PS4, XBO
  • Release: TBA

Coming off their hit series The Witcher, CD Projekt is currently in the process of developing their next release, Cyberpunk 2077. Little is know about the upcoming RPG narrative but what has been announced is that the game will be set in the distant future. Likewise, the open-world gameplay will likely promise a wide variety of quests and campaigns for players to complete though that’s purely speculative at this point. With E3 right around the corner, we’re hoping some official news is shared on the upcoming title such as the narrative and possibly gameplay mechanics.


Psychonauts 2
  • Developer: Double Fine Productions
  • Publisher: Starbreeze Studios
  • Platforms: PC, PS4, XBO
  • Release: TBA

Fans of the original Psychonauts video game can rejoice as the title will finally receive the much desired sequel likely next year. The video game will be following the events of the first title but also the events from the recently released, Psychonauts in the Rhombus Ruin which was a VR title that aims to bridge the first game and the sequel. Little is known about the upcoming Psychonauts 2 video game, though players will still take on the role of Raz with his Psi-Powers. Likewise, the narrative journey may open up some doors to the history of not only Raz but his family.

 

 


Anthem
  • Developer: BioWare
  • Publisher: Electronic Arts
  • Platforms: PC, PS4, XBO
  • Release: March 2019

After being delayed in 2018, Anthem is slated to launch in March of 2019. The video game is the next IP release under BioWare in which players are set to a distant alien planet being colonized. However, this alien planet is hostile with creatures lurking about. In order to keep humanity safe, players will step into the role of a Freelancer, a special task force that explores the world and take out the various threats. Likewise, this seems to be a game worth playing with friends with BioWare making mention of four-player cooperative gameplay. As it sits right now, Anthem could play similar to Destiny, though we’ll have to wait and see what new information is released into the public before we can really compare the two IPs.


Life is Strange 2
  • Developer: Dontnod Entertainment
  • Publisher: Square Enix
  • Platforms: PC, PS4, XBO
  • Release: TBA

Note: Trailer and images are from Life is Strange.

Life is Strange was a critical success. This episodic adventure from Dontnod Entertainment launched in 2015 where players step into the shoes of Max Caulfield who returns to her home town in order to graduate from a prestigious school. Unfortunately, her return is met with a hometown she may not be completely familiar with as she rekindles an old friendship and a dark mystery that looms over the duo. Likewise, the game offered a supernatural element to it as Max discovers the ability to rewind time allowing players to shift the conversation with a character or complete a puzzle more seamlessly.

The game wrapped up with over three million sales and Dontnod Entertainment confirming a sequel will be coming soon. Unfortuantely, it doens’t look like we’ll see any familiar faces as the developers are creating a brand new narrative journey with a new cast and possibly a different supernatural element. For now, we’ll have to wait and see when the game is officially unveiled.

Since its release in 2014, the game was met with a positive reception and its been revealed that a sequel will be in the works, but no information at this time has been shared to the public.We’re interested in seeing if the narrative journey picks up following the events of the first title or if a brand new story along with new complex puzzles are awaiting the players arrival.


Session

Skateboarding video games have seemed to lost their edge this past generation of consoles. That may soon change with the upcoming release of Session, a video game being developed by indie developer Crea-ture Studios. This is a Microsoft exclusive so you’ll need to be on a Windows 10 platform or the Xbox One.

After a successful Kickstarter campaign, developers are creating the game to be similar to the late 1990s and early 2000s skateboarding video game releases, such as the Tony Hawk Pro Skater lineup. Instead of a focus on a narrative or quest, Session is all about having a fun time as a professional skateboarder.
