Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands
The first game in our Top 5 upcoming games list is – Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands is the first military shooter set in a massive and responsive open world, according to Ubisoft. It’s set in Bolivia, a few years from now where the country has become the largest cocaine producer in the world. It makes a nice change from previous Tom Clancy games like Advanced Warfighter or Future Soldier that take place in the future. “The Santa Blanca drug cartel has turned the country into a narco-state, leading to lawlessness, injustice, and violence. The Ghosts, an elite US Special Forces team, is sent behind enemy lines to wreak havoc and takedown the cartel,” said Ubisoft.
Tom Clancy’s The Division
After a full two-year delay, some part of me wasn’t sure Ubisoft’s open world, third-person shooter The Division would ever come out. Even when we were allowed a brief taste of the game’s nebulous Dark Zone multiplayer hubs at E3 2015, we only saw a tiny, tightly controlled fraction of the overall experience. At a recent press event, however, I finally sat down with a nearly finished build of the game and played through the first few hours of The Division’s cooperative campaign.
Horizon Zero Dawn
Horizon Zero Dawn is a PlayStation 4 exclusive, and it’s the first original IP from Guerrilla Games since it started developing the original first-person shooter Killzone. In a recent interview, the executive producer for the game delved into why it doesn’t feature a multiplayer component, something seen as integral for a game to sell well in the modern gaming industry. That was one of the reasons the originally single-player-oriented franchise Assassin’s Creed deviated into multiplayer territory.
Cyberpunk 2077 is an upcoming action role-playing video game based on the Cyberpunk series of tabletop role-playing games. Announced in 2012, the game is being developed by CD Projekt RED. Cyberpunk 2077 will feature a dystopian futuristic world in which ultra-modern technology co-exists with a degenerated human society.
Mirror’s Edge Catalyst
As suspected, the new Mirror’s Edge game currently in development at Battlefield developer DICE has now been given the name Mirror’s Edge: Catalyst. It was first suggested that this would be the game’s name following teases on social media and a listing on a European intellectual property site earlier this week.
