  • Release: June 12, 2018

Jurassic World Evolution is being developed by Frontier Developments who have brought out several other tycoon based video games. With Jurassic World Evolution, players are tasked with working on the construction of a Jurassic World dinosaur theme park.

The game acts out much like its predecessor, Jurassic Park: Operation Genesis where players not only construct the park but manage it daily. You’ll set up the aesthetics of the park, what dinosaurs are featured and the various business operations that go on behind the scenes.

This is also a game worth playing if you don’t usually find city-builder simulation games very fun. You’ll find that Jurassic World Evolution is relatively simple in comparison to some of the other big city management titles.

 

 


Darksiders III

  • Developer: Gunfire Games
  • Publisher: THQ Nordic
  • Platforms: PC, PS4, XBO
  • Release: November 27, 2018

The Darksiders franchise continues on with developers Gunfire Games launching the third main installment sometime in 2018. This franchise is an action role-playing with a ton of hack-and-slash goodness.

Battlefield V

  • Developer: EA DICE
  • Publisher: Electronic Arts
  • Platforms: PC, PS4, XBO
  • Release: October 19, 2018

Battlefield V is the latest upcoming installment to the Battlefield franchise which will follow after the previous release, Battlefield 1. This time around, EA Dice is focusing their storyline with World War II as players embark on yet another war-torn journey. Unfortunately, not too many details have been released yet for the game, though from the trailers released it seems that we’ll still have the war stories style campaign much like how EA DICE developed Battlefield 1.

Multiplayer is also still a major component with Battlefield V and it will receive even more new expansive game modes. Also, the game will include a battle royale style mode which doesn’t come to much surprise due to the success other titles have been receiving with battle royale.

What may be the most popular aspect leading up to the release of Battlefield V is the fact that the game has no premium pass or paid expansions which means that everyone will gain access to the content released after launch.

 


World War Z

  • Developer: Saber Interactive
  • Publisher: Saber Interactive
  • Platforms: PC, PS4, XBO
  • Release: 2018

World War Z became a hit novel when it released and since then the story was adapted loosely into a blockbuster film. Now that story is moving into the video game industry with a title being developed under Saber Interactive.

We’re still waiting to hear more information about the game, but from what we can tell so far, the video game may be aimed more towards the novel than the film. Players will be going across the world in different regions as they partake in survival stories against the zombie pandemic.

Furthermore, the game will feature four player co-op which means you and your friends can blast through the undead. There seems to be a massive amount of undead coming at players so you may not get the same vibe and feel as Left 4 Dead though, at the same time, the reveal trailer does show players unloading assault weapons into the horde rather than rushing to safety.

 


Mega Man 11

  • Developer: Capcom
  • Publisher: Capcom
  • Platforms: PC, NS, PS4, XBO
  • Release: 2018

We’re still looking at scarce information when it comes to Mega Man 11, but it looks like the long-beloved Mega Man franchise will receive a new main installment late 2018. There is certainly a strong following with the franchise and we know that this eleventh installment will feature 3D characters and environments and not a 2.5D video game.

From the announcement trailer, it looks like the same game mechanics are gameplay are present that the series is known for. However, for now, we’ll have to wait and see just what the narrative will hold when it comes to the game. Likewise, with the title already claiming to not release until late 2018, this very well could be a game that will be delayed until next year, 2019.

Regardless, we’re keeping close tabs with Mega Man 11 and will continue to update you on the progress of the video game.

 


Soulcalibur VI

  • Developer: Project Soul

This time, however, players will be maneuvering a new cast of characters set within the continent of Europa.

Within the game, players will take control of a soldier named Avil who must protect the world from giant ogres. Gameplay is said to be fast paced where players will run around the map, making wall runs, or even using your whip to vault you up towards beasts in a full frontal attack.

Developers also have plans for future DLC with the game so after you finish up the narrative campaign and side missions, more content will be rolling out for gamers to enjoy. Just how much content is set to launch after the game remains to be seen, but Extinction in itself looks to be rather interesting.

 


 Wargroove

  • Developer: Chucklefish
  • Publisher: Chucklefish

If you are looking for a turn-based strategy game to enjoy this year then you’ll want to keep tabs on Wargroove. This is an upcoming turn-based strategy title by developers Chucklefish, the developers behind Starbound and publishers of Stardew Valley.

Now gamers are waiting for the next big release known as Shadow of the Tomb Raider. Within the upcoming installment, players will find Lara Croft will pick things back up after the events of Rise of the Tomb Raider. So far we know that the game will follow Lara as she attempts to stop a Mayan apocalypse though the antagonist organization Trinity believes they can wield the power in order to reshape the world.

Much like the previous installments as well, Lara will have to use not only stealth but force as she battles against Trinity’s guards. There is of course wildlife lurking within the jungles, puzzles to solve and resources to gather in order to craft previous materials.

  • Platforms: PC, XBO
  • Release: 2018

Ashen is an upcoming action RPG title that follows players into a world that is full of hostile enemies and gloom. Little information has been released about the game so far, but what we do know is that players can opt to work together in hopes for a greater chance of survival.

Within the world, players may cross paths and can then team up in a means to increase the skill set and crafting abilities.

Within the game, ten players will battle it out to see who will be the last man standing, though unlike some of the other popular battle royale games in the market today, there can be a variety of ways a player is killed.

While players can kill each other using weapons, there are other elements to worry about such as the weather and environments. Likewise, the developers behind this video game, Scavengers Studios, are hoping that viewers will play a big role in game matches.

Another player will play as a host, who will have the ability to trigger events and cause some extra surprises for gamers to go through. However, viewers who simply watch the match can vote on certain elements to unfold as well. We expect matches to go relatively quick with all these elements combined and best of all its made to be a free-to-play video game.


Dark Souls: Remastered

  • Developer: FromSoftware
  • Publisher: Namco Bandai Games
  • Platforms: PS4, XBO, PC
  • Release: 2018

Dark Souls released all the way back in 2011 so it’s been available to play for quite some time now. However, if you were uninterested in going back to this highly beloved action RPG simply due to the visual standpoint then you’ll be delighted to know the game will be receiving a remastered edition.

There’s not very much to say about this upcoming title if you’ve already enjoyed it on last generation consoles. This remastered edition will retain the same gameplay mechanics but there will be a facelift to help give the game a nice touch up for modern day consoles.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4

  • Developer: Treyarch
  • Publisher: Activision
  • Platforms: PC, PS4, XBO
  • Release: October 12, 2018

There seems to never be any shortages when it comes to the Call of Duty franchise and this year we’re getting a new installment to the Black Ops line. Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 will be launching in October of this year though there is one rather major element being completely dropped with this upcoming installment.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 will not contain a campaign mode. In the day and age of battle royale modes being incredibly popular, Treyarch has decided to make this next call of the Duty title to feature nothing but a multiplayer component.

The focus will be doubling down on the multiplayer game modes including Zombies. So if you’re a fan of Call of Duty for their online multiplayer matches then you have nothing to worry about in this installment but with that said, if you picked up the latest installments to enjoy the action-packed campaigns then you may have to hold out for the 2019 installment release.

  • Developer: Ubisoft
  • Publisher: Ubisoft
  • Platforms: NS, PS4, XBO
  • Release: October 16, 2018

Starlink: Battle for Atlas is a new space adventure title developed under Ubisoft. The video game is also one of the few titles lately to use the toys-to-life game model where players can purchase physical toys that can be used in conjunction with the video game.

Overall, the game is set in the future where players find Equinox, their mothership, being shot down by an unruly force known as The Forgotten Legion. The center of the controversy is Wardens, a since expired race that has ancient technology left behind in ruins. It’s with this technology that The Forgotten Legion aims to study and use for their own advances.

Most of this game will be exploring worlds, meeting alien species to form an alliance along with building up your ranks. Also, as mentioned, the game does feature a toys-to-life component which means you can purchase various packs that will help equip specific upgrades to your ship or add in characters.

 


Hitman 2

  • Developer: IO Interactive
  • Publisher: Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment
  • Platforms: PC, PS4, XBO
  • Release: November 13, 2018

If you enjoyed the Hitman video game release back in 2016 then you won’t want to miss out on its sequel. Hitman 2 will continue on with the narrative journey left off in the previous installment. Players will once again step into the role of Agent 47 where he will be taking on contracts and killing off the designated targets. However, the overall goal in Agent 47’s mind is taking out the Shadow Client from the previous video game storyline.

There is also another change up from the past title and that this time around players will not have to deal with an episodic release. Unlike Hitman, Hitman 2 will have a more standard video game release with the entire game being available right from launch. However, the game will still be supported post-release as developers IO Interactive will be delivering DLC expansions.

Gameplay will still be the same where Agent 47 will have to blend into his environment in order to stealthily take down his target. Currently, Hitman 2 is slated to launch in November of this year for the PlayStation 4, PC and Xbox One platforms.

 


Fallout 76

  • Developer: Bethesda Game Studios
  • Publisher: Bethesda Softworks
  • Platforms: PC, PS4, XBO
  • Release: November 14, 2018

Fallout 76 is the latest upcoming installment to the Fallout franchise though it will be quite a bit different in comparison to past main installments. Bethesda has developed Fallout 76 to be an online multiplayer title that takes place before previous Fallout games.

Within the game, players take on a member from Vault 76 where their goal is to help rebuild the wasteland when the vault opens twenty-five years after the nuclear war. While this is still an action RPG, the gameplay is centered on building up and maintaining settlements.

For instance, when players have managed to build up a base, they will have to defend it from the mutated monsters both old and new along with other hostile players. Luckily it seems that Bethesda has incorporated a feature that will save player creations when they are offline so you won’t have to start completely over if your settlement gets trashed when you’re not playing.

 


Just Cause 4

  • Developer: Avalanche Studios
  • Publisher: Square Enix
  • Platforms: PC, PS4, XBO
  • Release: December 4, 2018

Get ready to jump back into the boots of Rico Rodriguez. Just Cause 4 is coming out this holiday season and as always players will be following Rico who is dealing with a new antagonist group in the South American country called Solis.

This installment is actually slated to unveil the mysterious history of Rico, but you’ll also find that the Black Hand isn’t the only hostility that Rico will have to endure before he is able to learn of his past.

Solis is home of conflict and oppression along with severe weather conditions. As such, players will need to prepare to use the wingsuit to soar through the skies while avoiding lightning storms and massive tornadoes.

Currently, Just Cause 4 will be launching on December 4, 2018, for the PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One platforms.

 


Metal Wolf Chaos XD

  • Developer: General Arcade, FromSoftware
  • Publisher: Devolver Digital
  • Platforms: PC, PS4, XBO
  • Release: 2018

Metal Wolf Chaos was released in 2004 as a Japanese only Xbox exclusive title that features America’s president going to war with the vice president. Oddly enough the game never made it overseas which meant that the game was incredibly tough to come by and even more so to play. However, over the years the interest of playing this game only grew and now thanks to Devolver Digital, it seems that we’re going to be receiving localized copies.

Metal Wolf Chaos XD is the upcoming remastered edition of the game being developed under General Arcade. Players outside of Japan will finally be able to enjoy this mech title where President Michael Wilson will be fighting against the rebellion that’s under control of Vice-President Richard Hawk.

This remastered edition will also feature new controls, save system and 4K 16:9 support. Unfortunately, at the time of writing this, we don’t have a specific release date attached to the game quite yet. Instead, we are expected to receive the title sometime this year.

 


Life is Strange 2

  • Developer: Dontnod Entertainment
  • Publisher: Square Enix
  • Platforms: PC, PS4, XBO
  • Release: September 27, 2018

Life is Strange was a massive hit release for developers Dontnod Entertainment. Players embarked on a personal and deeply emotional journey as they stepped into the shoes of a young high school student named Max. Without going too much into detail about the first game, Max finds out she has a supernatural ability that allows her to stop and rewind time. With this new power, Max and her best friend Chloe begins to dig up old town secrets while the overall gameplay narrative is shaped from the choices you make along the way.

We’ve been waiting for a sequel to the franchise and while it’s not a direct sequel to the first installment, Dontnod Entertainment is bringing on a brand new story set within the same world. The developers have been very secretive about this upcoming title but the hype and expectations for a great game are already set pretty high.

With that said, the development studio did release a standalone free video game called The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit which gives players a small glimpse into Life is Strange 2 and supposedly a few characters as well. Just what characters are making a bigger appearance in Life is Strange 2 remains to be seen.
