2017 wasn’t the best year for many folks, but the good news is that it’s finally over and we are filled to the brim with excitement for all the new Xbox One games being released in 2018!
Below you will find information about the games we are most looking-forward to getting our hands on and there is definitely something for everyone.
Monster Hunter: World
Monster Hunter: World marks a new journey for Capcom’s long-running action series as handheld portability is traded for exceedingly impressive graphics and it’s obvious that this new game aims to capture the attention of the modern market.
You’ll be pursuing dinosaurs and dragons through tropical jungles, clad in camo, with your outrageously large weaponry.
Metal Gear Survive
Even though Hideo Kojima was not involved in the creation of Metal Gear Survive – apart from its reuse of assets built for Metal Gear Solid 5’s Fox Engine – we are still pretty keen on this new instalment: a third-person multiplayer survival game set in a weird alternate dimension, where the supporting soldiers on Mother Base are being swarmed by crystal-encrusted zombies.
A Way Out
The concept of A Way Out is cool, yet risky, as it can only be played in split-screen co-op mode, but you will get to experience your very own Shawshank Redemption prison break.
Inmates Leo and Vincent must work together to break out of prison and restore their freedom, and A Way Out can be played with a friend or online.
Far Cry 5
Far Cry 5 is set to be so addictive that you’ll have to schedule a time for your regular online slots play! Unlike the previous incarnations of Far Cry, this instalment does not take place in some far-flung destination, but rather in the good ol’ US of A in a fictional place called Hope County in Montana.
The town is thrown into chaos by a cult known as Project at Eden’s Gate, led by the hypnotic Father Joseph who advocates religious fanaticism and doomsday levels of high-powered firearms.
As Hope County’s newest deputy sheriff, you’ll band with the townsfolk to take down the cult in the most chaotic ways imaginable.
Red Dead Redemption 2
Set in a time before Red Dead Redemption, this sequel to the highly-acclaimed open world, Wild West game, you’ll play as Arthur Morgan – an outlaw under the employ of the familiar villain Dutch van der Linde.
Morgan is far thornier than the detached John Marston, but you’ll have plenty of time to get to know him as you traverse the quaint plains and lush mountainous regions.
Created by Dontnod, the eclectic studio behind Remember Me and Life is Strange, the blood-thirsty Vampyr casts you as recently turned Jonathan Reid in the streets of 1918 Victorian London.
You can either play Reid as London’s saviour – using your healing powers to find a cure for a deadly epidemic – or as the sinner – hunting human pretty under the cover of night.
We Happy Few
Based on the concept alone, We Happy Few is basically a must-play as it manages to seamlessly blend a BioShock-esque society of maniacal drug addicts with the kitschy whimsy of 1960s Austin Power into one amusingly creepy survival game.
Playing as one of the residents of the fictitious Wellington Wells, you’ll navigate in first-person through a society where everyone is forced to take a dose of a hallucinogenic known as Joy. You refuse to take your medicine and you’ve been labelled as a kill-on-sight Downer.
