Most anticipated games of 2017? You bet! 2017 has been a semi-good year so far in the gaming industry. We’ve seen a lot of awesome releases, whether it’s been in the form of hardware, with the Nintendo Switch, or announcements like the Xbox One X (still not sure how I feel about that name, but I’ll buy it). And 2017 has a lot more to offer us.
So I’ve made a list of what we here at PCRtv think are the most anticipated games of (the rest of) 2017.
Make sure to share and let us know what you think below in the comments.
South Park: The Fractured But Whole
Star Wars Battlefront II
Star Wars Battlefront II is an upcoming action shooter video game based on the Star Wars film franchise. It is the fourth major installment of the Star Wars: Battlefront series and seventh overall, and a sequel to the 2015 reboot of the series. It is under development by EA DICE in collaboration with Criterion Games and Motive Studios, and published by Electronic Arts.
Unlike its 2015 predecessor, it features a story-driven single-player campaign and multiplayer character classes; it also features cross-era characters and locations from the original, prequel and sequel Star Wars movie trilogies. The game is set for worldwide release on November 17, 2017.
Super Mario Odyssey
Middle-Earth: Shadow of War
Middle-earth: Shadow of War is an upcoming action role-playing video game developed by Monolith Productions and published by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. It is the sequel to 2014’s Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor, and scheduled to be released worldwide on October 10, 2017 for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
Shadow of War continues the previous game’s narrative, based on J. R. R. Tolkien’s legendarium with events occurring between those of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. Like its predecessor, the game also takes heavy inspiration from director Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings film adaptations. The player continues the story of the ranger Talion who shares his body with the spirit of the elf lord Celebrimbor, as they use one of the Rings of Power to amass an army to fight against Sauron and his Nazgûl forces. The game builds upon the Nemesis system introduced in Shadow of Mordor, allowing Talion to gain Followers from several races of Middle-earth including Uruk-Hai and Olog-hai and plan out complex strategies using these to complete missions.
