MORE NEWS FROM THE WEB
Titanfall is the game that took 2014 by storm! With it being marketed as one of the first Xbox One exclusives and winning over 60 awards at E3 2013, gamers across the world had high hopes for the it. The game debuted to great reviews as expected from a game developed by the same team that was behind the Call of Duty franchise. Titanfall 2 has already won awards before it was even released, just like its predecessor. At the Game Critics Awards 2016, Titanfall 2 won “best Online Multiplayer”.
Titanfall 2 is to be released October 25,2016 on Playstation 4, Microsoft Windows, and Xbox One.

October 21, 2016 is the official release date of the game.

No Man’s Sky
Unlike the previous entries on this list No Man’s Sky is a completely new entity that has enthralled many gamers since it was announced. No Man’s Sky is an action-adventure game which, according to the creators, will put focus on survival, exploration, combat and trading. Players will enjoy an open,shared universe. No Man’s Sky is the first game of it’s kind and will certainly add something new and exciting to gaming. The game is out now on Playstation 4 and Microsoft Windows.
The Last Guardian
The Last Guardian has been in development since 2007 and many thought the game would never see the light of day. After almost a decade of being in development, The Last Guardian is finally coming to gamers everywhere! The Last Guardian follows a boy who must protect a large, feathered creature called Trico. Throughout the game the player will have to solve puzzles making use of Trico’s own abilities. Unfortunately for Xbox users, this game will be a Playstation 4 exclusive.
The Last Guardian will be released in Japan and North America on October 25, 2016 , Australia on October 26, 2016 , and finally in Europe on October 28, 2016.
Watch Dogs 2
Watch Dogs, like Titanfall, was one of the most anticipated games of 2014. The game followed a hacker, Aiden Pearce , as he tried to avenge his niece’s death. The game was released to very high praise and broke Ubisoft’s record for highest first day sales history. In Watch Dogs 2, players will take control of another hacker, Marcus Holloway, who is working with a hacker group to disarm a surveillance system in a fictionalized version of San Francisco, CA.
Watch Dogs 2 will be released on November 15, 2016 for Microsoft Windows, Xbox One, and Playstation 4.
The final installment on this list is the one that I am personally the most excited for! That title is Outlast 2! Big survival horror titles are few and far in between compared to first person shooters and action-adventures. Luckily in 2013, Red Barrels came released Outlast. The investigative journalist protagonist, Miles Upshur, is taken to a psychiatric hospital in the mountains of Colorado to document the alleged abuse taking place there. Outlast 2 will take players deep into the Arizona desert to uncover the story of a murdered Jane Doe. Outlast was story rich and full of scares so one can only expect no less from Outlast 2, which is set to be released in Fall 2016 (no exact date yet).
The game will comes to Playstation 4, Xbox One, and Microsoft Windows.
