5 Most Anticipated Games of 2017
5. Resident Evil 7: Biohazard
Resident Evil 6 was ‘meh’, as it faced a backlash from the hardcore fans for being more focused on action rather than the horror aspect. However, Capcom has learned from its mistakes as the Resident Evil 7: Biohazard is not short of absolute brilliance in horror genre. The trailers had us at the edge of the seat and wait for the dread and suspense.
This first person shooter has gone back to its roots of being horror survival with a dark and eerie environment.
The Resident Evil 7: Biohazard will be available on the PS4, Xbox One and PC on 24th January 2017. It is also available in VR for those with a strong heart.
4. Mass Effect: Andromeda
So dive into the unknown void of space, as you leave behind the Milky Way and head out into the Andromeda. BioWare takes everything good from the original trilogy and adds it to the Andromeda alongside amazing visuals and a promising plot. This third person RPG will be coming out on 23rd March 2017 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
3. Super Mario Odyssey:
You heard that right, our favorite plumber will make a return in 2017, this time in an open world game! The Super Mario Odyssey’s world is inspired by real world locations, the New Donk City seen in the trailer is clearly based off the New York City.
The Super Mario odyssey seems to be the successor of Super Mario 64. It will be available on the Nintendo Switch and will be released in late 2017. So get ready to rescue Princess Peach yet again from the evil Bowser.
2. Legend of Zelda – Breath of the Wild:
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is probably one of the most anticipated games as it was announced in 2013 and fans have waited for almost four years for its release. The four-year wait, however, seems worth it as the trailer looks absolutely astounding. The new Legend of Zelda takes place in an open world and has all the right ingredients.
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild will be available on the Wii U and Nintendo Switch later this year.
1. Red Dead Redemption 2:
