The new year of 2017 brings a lot of new things in gaming. We will be seeing some of the biggest game releases happening this year. This post is about many games that will be released this year for PC. Let’s get started. Here are the Best PC Games which are expected to launch in 2017:
Resident Evil 7: Biohazard
The Resident Evil is getting a reboot with a new first person style. This time the game is going to focus more on the scary aspects as compared to what we already saw. A playable demo of the game was released in 2016 and it was a really good short and scary experience of the game that left us wanting more.
By the way, the game is also supposed to be released for VR which will be an experience of its own. It might be the best PC game which you will see in 2017.
Halo Wars 2
When the Halo Wars 2 was announced at Gamescon 2015 – people were surprised for real. The game had made its way to the announcement at Gamescon without any leaks or rumors at all.
Halo Wars 2 is a real-time strategy game and the first game in the franchise was released back in 2009. Halo Wars 2 is going to a Xbox Play Anywhere game which means you can purchase the game for either of the platforms and you will be able to play them both on PC as well as Xbox. This is definitely one of the most anticipated PC game for 2017.
Mass Effect: Andromeda
Mass Effect is a game franchise that has a countless number of fans around the globe. This time the sci-fi game is going to take the gamers into the Andromeda galaxy where the players would be able to explore a whole new Mass Effect game.
New ships, new planets, new aliens and more. It is a third-person role-playing and shooter game which is centered on intergalactic exploration. The game also brings things like crafting to the table so there is a lot to look forward to in this new Mass Effect game.
Tekken series of games are loved by many around the world and this game i.e. Tekken 7 is supposed to be the last Tekken game ever which means this time it is not only going to be special, but it is going to be big as well.
Star Citizen is a Kickstarter project which raised about $100m through crowdfunding. The game is going to be a great mix of first person shooter, open world, space exploration which you can choose to play either solo or with other people. The game is currently in its ALPHA and it is still under development. If the game is going to be what it says, then it is going to be a great game to spend time on.
Metal Gear Survive
Metal Gear Survive is the first Metal Gear game after Hideo Kojima, the creator of Metal Gear series parted ways with Sony. The game is a big title that will be released in 2017 but the fans have their doubts regarding the game. The biggest one being that the game is not going to be as good as the previous Metal Gear games. It is going to be a co-op survival game which actually looks like fun. We just have to wait and see how this one turns out.
Scalebound is going to be an adventure and action game about a guy and his dragon friend. The game was announced at E3 2016 for Windows 10 and it will be a part of Xbox Play Anywhere. This means you will be able to own it both on PC as well as Xbox by just purchasing it once. The game is about playing as a team and taking down various monsters and it offers much more.
Guardians of the Galaxy
We all know about Guardians of the Galaxy. Telltale is going to release a GOTG game in 2017 which is their first out of the seven games they have planned to released with Marvel.
The game could either work with the Marvel Cinematic Universe, or it can take a completely different path and provide us with a fresh new story to play with. In any case, it is expected to be one of the best upcoming PC game for 2017.
Agents of Mayhem
Agents of Mayhem is being developed by the same studio that is responsible for developing Saints Row game series. If you have played at least one of the Saint Row games, you would know how good those games are. This game i.e. Agents of Mayhem is about three heroes who have their own unique skills. They will be using their skills to clear the world of the evil. This is going to be an open world game with a lot of action in between.
South Park: The Fractured But Whole
We all love South Park. The edgy animated show is something you should watch if you haven’t and the same stands true for the South Park games. The game comes after South Park: The Stick of Truth but it separates itself from the fantasy factor and in South Park: The Fractured But Whole you play as The New Kid who is aiming towards being part of the superhero gang we saw in the last game.
Prey was announced about five years back in its been a long time since it has been in development. It is said that a late game is always better than a rushed game and that is what we are expecting with this one. The game has now been reimagined and is quite different from what the studio offered 5 years ago. It is going to be a sci-fi FPS game set in the future. Hopefully, the game has great things to offer.
Crackdown 3 was announced in Gamescon 2015 and it is going to be the third one in the Crackdown series. This series is known to be a really fun sandbox game and this new game in the series brings some great new stuff along with it. The game will finally release this year which means the wait is going to end soon.
Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of war 3
The Dawn of War III will finally be available to the gamers in 2017 and it comes with a great single player campaign but it also has a multiplayer aspect for people who want to play with friends. You will be provided with challenges both online as well as offline and fulfilling these will be a lot of fun.
Cuphead – Don’t deal with the Devil
Cuphead is like a fresh new breath of air in an action game. The game is designed on the lines of cartoons that were designed in the 1930s. Everything looks like a colored classic cartoon which makes the game quite different from what we usually play. You can play as Cuphead or Mugman in single player or co-op mode and you have to go through the game world where you have to fight monsters, get new weapons and learn new moves.
This game makes the player play as a Viking, Samurai or a Knight and each of them have their own unique abilities. The unique abilities will be used depending on the faction you choose to play with. You have to take part in the Medieval warfare and play as your chosen faction to move up in the game.
Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Wildlands
Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands is going to be an open world tactical and shooter game by Ubisoft. This is the 10th game in the Ghost Recon series. The game is supposed to go back to the roots of the original Ghost Recon game and move away from the futuristic world that was present in Advanced Warfighter. This is going to be a big title which means it will be one of the bigger releases of 2017.
These were some of the best PC games that we will see and will be able to play in 2017. I’m personally looking forward to playing Cuphead and Ghost Recon Wildlands but the other titles are really good as well.
