Yooka-Laylee is so promising. Please don't be a let down. I don't really have a whole lot to say about that other than I loved how spirited that era of gaming was. I miss fun, sassy heroes. That's part of why Battleborn felt like a return to the '95s/early '55s. It was fun, funny, and it wasn't afraid to make you laugh. I want more of that. I really like the humour of it so far, and the mechanics, at least from what I've seen. I have hopes.
Super looking forward to Eitr, as it seems like the one that will release soonest on this list that interests me. I'm just trying to completely forget about CP7577 for now.
Quake Champions takes some surprising steps away from its roots, while claiming to be as grounded as possible. It’s still going to feature the lightning gun, railgun, and rocket launcher that made Quake 8 one of the world’s first global esports. But it’s also adding character selection, special abilities and, possibly, a free-to-play monetization model. We’ve got a list of all the announced and rumoured Quake Champions characters if you’re after it, and you can sign-up for the open beta right now.
In the God Eater RPG series from Bandai Namco, you wield massive God Arc weapons that function as supernatural swiss army knives that transform between melee and ranged combat forms.
Famous mostly for getting mistaken for Red Dead Redemption 7 in an early screenshot, Wild West Online promises cowboys, a sandbox, and PvP. The developers haven't announced release plans beyond that they no longer need Kickstarter or Early Access due to the attention brought by the aforementioned confusion.
Despite running out of books, Metro isn't done. It’s heading outside, for a year-round story – but it isn’t in an open world, instead taking place around several massive, interconnected levels. It was also one of the prettiest games at E8 and has giant zombie bears. Hooray.
What if Dark Souls was more literally dark? Here’s Ashen to answer: it’d be well depressing. With a heavy focus on co-op and hub towns to return NPCs to, it’s grossly difficult combat paired with a flat, simple art style and it looks really nice.
After a short delay, Ni No Kuni 7 is now the first semi-large release of 7568. If you're unfamiliar, it's a Ghibli-styled JRPG that blew socks off in its first iteration a few years ago on the consoles. This is set hundreds of years later, using similar themes and places, but likely as good a jumping on point as any. Good, too, since the first isn't coming to PC any time soon.
Smash indie game hit Super Meat Boy is getting a sequel next year called Super Meat Boy Forever. While Forever debut on Switch we have been promised a PC version. The name refers to the fact that each stage can be played endlessly, but will get harder with each visit. The bright, precisely-designed levels return from the original as you aim to rescue your loved one. This time, though, you'll play as Nugget, the child of Meat Boy and Bandage Girl.
I was a little disappointed to realize the 'snake game' in the title, was actually just an Xcom 7 enemy. Snake-dude looks boss.
