The Most Anticipated Games of 2017 (Part 2)

Outlast 2

Now’s the time to get into our 2nd and final listing of 2017’s most anticipated games!

Outlast 2

In the 1st part of our most anticipated games of 2017 list, we made sure to mention the 7th entry in the Resident Evil series. For the 2nd part of our list, we’re gonna have to bring up the next official entry in the Outlast series. As far as playable survival horror games go, the 1st Outlast game made us shake uncontrollably at every turn. After hopping into the demo, Outlast 2 has reassured us that it’ll be even scarier than before. Instead of being locked within the walls of an insane asylum, we’ll have to brave the dangers of a dark forest. We’re ready to haul ass at the sight of anything horrific and scream our heads off all the while. ” No conflict is ever black and white.”

Horizon Zero Dawn

Guerrilla Games has done enough work putting the Killzone FPS franchise together for the PlayStation brand. We’re glad they’re deviating from their most developed project and moving onto something entirely different. Horizon Zero Dawn throws us into a vibrant world that’s been taken over by mechanical dinosaurs and other types of wildlife. As a young hunter known as Aloy, we’ll venture through every part of the game’s forestry and take down massive creatures that contain the goods needed to survive. The gameplay we’ve seen so far showcases battles on a massive scale and a tale that we can’t wait to figure out the intricacies behind. This action RPG looks to be one of 2017’s earliest contenders for best PS4 exclusive.

Sonic Mania

Christian Whitehead. Headcannon. PagodaWest Games. SEGA of America. All of these parties have come together to produce a playable callback to the 2D glory days of Sonic The Hedgehog. Sonic Mania looks like the Sonic CD sequel that we’ve always wished for. Everything from the retro visuals right on down to the catchy soundtrack has us anticipating Sonic’s return to side-scrolling action. This platformer is taking it back to basics – three playable heroes (Sonic, Tails and Knuckles), plenty of dangerous zones to explore and end-of-level Eggman boss fights. Sonic Mania is the return to form that the Sonic franchise desperately needs.

South Park: The Fractured But Whole

The foul mouthed kids who reside in South Park already had a ball engaging in some wild mystical adventures. Now they’re ready to adopt their best superhero/super villain alter-ego’s for a “Civil War” of epic proportions. Players can once again create their own small town kid and develop them into a hero to be reckoned with. The RPG battle system has received several improvements, you can recruit 13 members from Coon and Friends and even explore the small town at night. There’s gonna be a ton of offensive moments strewn throughout this sequel and we can’t wait to be shocked and have our jaws hit the floor. South Park: The Fractured But Whole is going to be so offensively entertaining.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

So the Nintendo Switch is set to launch in 2017. And we’re betting that one of the very best games that will release right alongside it is the latest Zelda game. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild has been in development for a good while and it’s been pushed back several times. But we think this is all for the better because Nintendo knows how to assure gamers that their biggest franchises will always be great. Breath of the Wild gives us a new rendition of Link who’ll run around a huge open-world. There’s loot to collect, dungeons to investigate and an even more intense combat system to become skilled at. Link’s next adventure could be the killer app that the Nintendo Switch desperately needs to attract us all.
