2017 has already been a great year for PS4 gamers but it’s not over yet. We still have five more months of pure entertainment. The fall will once again be packed with some amazing titles, but it is near impossible to play/afford all of them. Realizing that, we have outlined the biggest PS4 games coming during the next five months, so you can pre-plan your purchases.
Uncharted: The Lost Legacy
Uncharted The Lost Legacy is a spin-off of the popular Uncharted franchise. However, instead of playing as Nathan Drake, you will be put in the shoes of Chloe Frazer. She had a significant role to play in Uncharted 2 but was never heard or seen from again. People wondered where she had been, and this spin-off tries to answer that very question. It takes place in the northern region of India, so you can expect to explore mountains, forests, lakes, and other beautiful landscapes. The game is shaping up to be an amazing entry in the franchise and if you have liked other games in the series, then you should definitely keep an eye on Uncharted: The Lost Legacy. You won’t have to wait too long to get your hands on it as it is set to hit the shelves on August 22.
The original Destiny made a huge impact on the market and created a new genre altogether. Destiny 2 improves on that formula, brings a ton of new content to the table along with new character sub-classes. Some changes to matchmaking have also been done to make it smoother and faster. Furthermore, a ton of loot and weapons have been added which will keep the players engaged for a very long time. If you enjoyed the original game, then there is absolutely no reason to miss out on much improved Destiny 2. PS4 users can get their hands on the highly anticipated sequel on September 6.
Shadow of War
Lord of the Rings inspired Shadow of Mordor was the biggest surprise of 2014, and due to its popularity and success, it was inevitable that we will eventually get a sequel. Now, it has finally happened in the shape of Shadow of War, and we will once again go into Mordor to fight Orcs. The original entry was limited due to last-gen hardware, but developers claim that this new entry is not held back by anything, and will deliver on both visual and gameplay front equally. From what we’ve seen thus far, everything about it looks incredible and if you enjoyed the first game or like The Hobbit/Lords of the Rings franchise, then you must check it out. Shadow of War is set to launch on October 10.
South Park: The Fractured But Whole
If you love South Park TV show, then you owe it to yourself to play this game. This is a sequel to a last-gen game called South Park: The Stick of Truth, but if you missed out on that, there’s no need to worry. If you pre-order Fractured But Whole, you will get the original game for free. So for the price of one, you will be getting your hands on two South Park games, which is an amazing deal for the fans of the series. There is only one downside to this game though, it can only be enjoyed to its fullest by people who are aware of the TV show. People who haven’t watched it may not get most of the references or jokes that the game has in store for them. The humor present in the game is exactly like the TV show. So, if you liked the series, you will feel right at home with the video game. South Park: The Fractured But Whole will launch on October 17.
The Evil Within 2
The Evil Within was fantastic but it had some jarring issues that ruined the experience for a lot of people. The developers took the feedback to heart and have improved on almost every single aspect. The first game was incredibly linear and not a lot of people were a fan of it. In The Evil Within 2, you are given complete freedom to approach your objective. You can play stealthily, go in guns blazing, kill everyone in sight, avoid them, or do whatever it is you want to do. The game has given you full control and you can utilize it in any way you want. The story first time around was pretty lackluster as well. However, developers assure that a lot of focus has been put on the storyline this time around and people would be surprised by the direction it takes. If you like survival/horror genre in general, then you should definitely check out The Evil Within 2 when it launches on October 13.
Star Wars Battlefront 2
Fans have been awaiting the new entry in Star Wars, and EA will finally deliver it later this year. Star Wars Battlefront 2 enhances the overall multiplayer experience and adds a brand new story into the mix. Stories built in the Star Wars universe are always welcome but for some reason, EA decided to ignore story mode in the first outing. Thankfully, they have learned from their mistakes and have added a campaign this time around. Multiplayer has been completely revamped as well. The biggest change brought with the new game is the addition of all three generation of Star Wars. You will be able to play as all the main characters that have appeared in the franchise, which is awesome. If you love Star Wars franchise or are a fan of fast paced multiplayer games in general, then you will love Star Wars Battlefront 2. This game will make its way to the market on November 17, so mark your calendars.
Assassins Creed Origins
Assassins Creed series has always been a big deal but this year’s entry is something special. First of all, the whole combat has completely been revamped to make it more RPG-like. It is no longer simplified as you will need to put in thought in your weaponry and armor. Less powerful weapons and armors won’t be effective against high-level enemies. This means that you will need to keep your equipment up to date. Secondly, the scenery has been changed. We are finally out of Europe and Americas, and this time, we will be making our way into Ancient Egypt. You will be able to explore pyramids, take on mystical beasts, explore deserts on a camel, learn about the history of assassins, and so much more. Everything about Assassins Creed Origins feels great, and we can’t wait to get our hands on it. This game will be made available all around the globe on October 27.
