2017 started off with good and bad games, the hype of Halo Wars 2 was good, but quickly let down by the fall of Mass Effect Andromeda. We’re hoping that 2018 will bring new and exciting games for us to all love and enjoy. Find out below our personal top picks of 2018 with their release dates.

  • Sea of Thieves

  • A Way Out

  • Far Cry 5

  • God of War

  • Red Dead Redemption 2

Sea of Thieves

If you’re a fan of pirates and sailing the seas then you will love this game. Rare’s pirate-themed action-adventure cooperative multiplayer game is setting sail on the 20th March this year. The game features an open world experience for a group of players via a pirate ship, each player assumes different roles such as steering, hoisting sails, navigation and even firing the cannons! The game features a cross-platform play between Windows PC’s and Xbox One’s so you can play with your friends on either system. Yes, you can fire your friends (or enemies) out of a cannon.

Sea of Thieves released on Xbox and PC this March 20th.

A Way Out

One of the most unique games to come out of E3 2017, “A Way Out” is developed as a Co-Op only action adventure game designed to be played from a third-person perspective. It is specifically designed for split-screen cooperative multiplayer, this means it must be played with another player via local or online play. You play as inmates Leo and Vincent who begrudgingly work together in order to break out of prison. Unique gameplay is presented through the persistent split-screen, one player could be trapped while the other must free him.

A Way Out releases on Xbox, PS4, and PC this March 23rd.

Far Cry 5

The next instalment in the Far Cry series isn't going to send you back in time, in fact it’s going to modern day USA. As the player, you will find yourself in the fictional region of “Hope County, Montana” which has been thrown into disarray by a cult known as the “Project Eden’s Gate”. You’ll play as Hope County’s newest deputy sheriff and band with the unturned townsfolk to take down Eden’s gate in this thrilling action adventure. The player has the choice of playing the campaign alone or with a friend through the game’s cooperative multiplayer mode known as “Friends for Hire”.

Far Cry 5 releases March 27th on Xbox One, PS4, and PC.

God of War

The fourth “main” entry into the God of War series is set as a soft reboot for the franchise and will take the series into the world of Norse mythology, quite different from the previous games where the focus was Greek Mythology.

You’ll play as Kratos, as he returns as the main character and you will be accompanied by his son named Atreus. The game sticks to the defined norm of slaying creatures along the way making use of Krator’ new lighting axe weapon, but you can expect quite a lot more character development between the main protagonist and his son.

God of War releases April 20th as a PlayStation 4 exclusive.

Red Dead Redemption 2

Easily one of the most anticipated games of 2018, fans have long awaited for another Red Dead Redemption game since the original 2010 title. This western-themed adventure game is again set in an open world environment where you control “Arthur Morgan”, an outlaw and a member of the “Van der Linde gang”. The game will feature both single player and online multiplayer components and will be the third entry in the Red Dead series, serving as a prequel to the 2010 title.

The game currently has no confirmed release date at the time of writing but we do know it will release on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One this year.
