2018 is going to be a big year in gaming. I thought I’d share my thoughts on what my anticipated titles are.
Currently being the start of the year there isn’t a lot to entice me. I’ve also bought a lot of titles on the various digital sales so probably need to catch up a bit now. January will mainly be spent playing Assassin’s Creed Origins and Middle Earth: Shadows of War.
The first new titles I will be looking at in 2018 are Sea of Thieves & Far Cry 5. I think with what Ubisoft have done with Assassin’s Creed Origins is amazing and with Far Cry 5 having a similar extra year’s development time, it can only be good. This could be the best Far Cry game yet. I’m still on the fence a little with Sea of Thieves but I am hopeful it will be really good and that solo play is fun. Another notable releases in March are a current gen update of Assassin’s Creed Rogue and the new co-op adventure A Way Out.
Later in the year I am hoping for some great fun with The Crew 2 (sometime mid year) and Red Dead Redemption 2. I sunk a lot of hours into the original The Crew game (and the expansions) and The Crew 2 does look like a much prettier and varied version of the game. Red Dead Redemption 2 from the early trailers looks absolutely stunning and the original game was pretty amazing, both for single and multi player. Certainly a huge anticipated game for me this year.
If previous years are to go by then Forza Horizon 4 should be out later this year, and I am very much looking forward to that. If any of the rumours are true we might be looking at Tokyo in Japan for the location. I’m hoping for a bigger world and the ability (fingers crossed) for you to be able to actually own property to store some of the awesome cars you collect. I realise these are just on my hope list but I can dream, can’t I?
What games are you looking forward to this year? Feel free to add your comments below.
