Here are just a few of some of the most anticipated games that will be released sometime this year.
Nioh / PS4 Exclusive
If you have ever envisioned being in 16th century Japan amidst fantastical demons all while being a samurai then you should look at PS4’s exclusive new title Nioh. This action RPG offers the opportunity to see Japan in a beautiful yet war-torn period and engages you with an intricate and rewarding combat system. There is even a unique co-op system built in for those samurais who may need a little help in fighting off some fierce demons. Nioh finally hits the stores on February the 7th.

Halo Wars 2 / Xbox One Exclusive
Halo Wars 2 continues in the same vein as the previous title of the same name. It is a real-time strategy game designed for those mentalists who may want to play a more vivid game of chess. Build and lead powerful armies against other players or join up with allies to attack others. Whatever you prefer, this game provides the opportunity to be your own powerful general and to display those skills amongst others. HW2 will become available on February 21st.
Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild / Wii U / Switch
Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild takes a slight depart from previous games and nearly does a 360 in returning to the game that started it all. This time Zelda provides an open world environment free for the gamer to explore at their leisure. There will be no intent geared storytelling in this title as the story and the pace of the story is solely up to the player. Considering their 30th anniversary was last year it made sense that the developers would want to come full circle with the legendary franchise. The newest installment in the Zelda series will be available on March 3rd.
For Honor / PS4 / Xbox One / PC
For Honor has been getting some buzz for some time for its MMORPG style. Although, it is an action game with intense melee combat it also provides a truly visceral online experience. Whether you are single player and experiencing the main story or have chosen to link up with a group of other players to fight in one army against another, you are promised a breathtaking realistic experience. Ironically, this intense war game will be available on February 14th.
The battle mechanics in For Honor are really unique and you just have to see it for yourself to understand how great of a game this will turn out to be. I’m really excited to play this game as you can tell!
Tekken 7 / PS4 / Xbox One / PC
Tekken 7 is setting new milestones for all fighting games with their new graphical might by their utilization of the Unreal Engine 4. All of the old fighters we know and love as well as new ones will be available with new moves and combos. Street Fighter’s Akuma is also available for all of the new epic battles. Tekken 7’s release date is not as close as the previous titles but is still worth waiting for on June 2nd.
These are just a few of the game titles everyone is looking forward to, so keep your eyes peeled or follow our blog to find out more about the big games that will be released this 2017!
