Games you will miss class for in 2018

RICARDO TEIXEIRA

With this year’s rAge festival done and dusted, it will be another year until geeks, gamers, cosplayers and tech fanatics can convene once more. 

God of War

Platform: PS4

The combination of Kratos and Norse mythology promises for an epic gaming experience. Our favourite anti-hero has returned in an unfamiliar land, filled with new monsters, new gods and fresh puzzles. Fans can expect release in early 2018.

 

A Way Out

Platform: PC, Xbox One, PS4

This co-op based Role Playing Game (RPG) follows two characters as they meet in prison and plan an escape together which is followed by a life on the run. Heavily centred on decision making, every objective can be done in multiple ways, depending on how players wish to play out the story. Release scheduled for early to mid 2018

 

Anthem

Platform: PC, Xbox One, PS4

This futuristic open world exploration game has got us all on the edge of our seat. Developed by the same team behind Mass Effect, players will be flying around exploring the open environment in their javelin exo suits wishing SpaceX or Blue Origin could make them a reality. Fortunately, the wait for the release is shorter than the wait for the real deal as players can pick up a copy in the last quarter of 2018.

 

Days Gone

Platform: PS4

This list would not be complete without a zombie survival game. This PS4 exclusive puts the player in control of an outlaw biker by the name of Deacon St. John, in a post-apocalyptic world ravaged by a worldwide pandemic. We definitely recommend this to fans of The Walking Dead. Sony has stated that the release is scheduled for the first half of 2018.

 

Red Dead Redemption 2

Platform: PC, Xbox One, PS4

Dust off those boots and saddle up, as this prequel/sequel to the 2010 hit western RPG from Rockstar games is coming in mid-2018. With rumours that the game will follow in the footsteps of Grand Theft Auto V and give us three main protagonists, we can’t help but wonder who will join the outlaw, since Arthur Morgan is the only current protagonist we know of.
