    What happens when you pit your favorite DC characters against each other and give them to the developers of Mortal Kombat? You get Injustice 2— a game with a great story straight out of the comics. This sequel features a new character customisation options and increased roster of characters. If you’re a fighting game fan, this one’s not to be missed.

    Prey

    Prey has been in development for some time and we’re finally seeing the end of it with a multitude of news, trailers and gameplay footage; with a new scary vibe, this first person sci-fi\horror action game has us on the edge of our seats.

    Red Dead Redemption 2

    We’ve only seen a trailer and a picture so far, but we’re already hyped for this game, as Rockstar has pushed the envelope when it comes to both graphic achievements as well as storytelling. Much is expected from Red Dead Redemption 2 and it looks like it’s going to deliver.

    Shadow Warrior 2

    With the success of the first edition, and with a legacy dating back to the 90’s, Shadow Warrior brings comedy and action to a whole new level, especially when fighting demons with weapons like katanas and machine guns in this first person classic.

    Rumored to be called Assassin’s Creed: Empire, the latest chapter of the popular series is to be set in Ancient Egypt, where you play as a freed slave and climb the Assassins’ order ladder to become a lethal assassin; it’s also rumored to be part of a trilogy planned for the IP.

    God of War

    PlayStation blew people away at the E3 conference in 2016 with an unexpected reveal for the new God of War game, and fans have been talking about it ever since.  This installment features an all-new setting , with Kratos having a son!

    Death Stranding

    Possibly the most anticipated game of the year comes via the legendary Hideo Kojima. Starring some big names including Norman Reedus (The Walking Dead) and Mads Mikkelsen (Hannibal and Rogue One), details are about Death Stranding are still scarc, but that hasn’t stopped people buzzing, talking and speculating.

    The Last of Us – Part 2

    The Last of Us is widely considered one of the best games ever and ranked pretty high on gaming websites around the world, so when it was announced that part two was in development last year, people started to freak out – and with good reason. This time round, players will take control over Ellie in the post-apocalyptic world of Clickers and the worst monsters of all…humans.
