This is going to be a great year for gaming and 10 is only the tip of the iceberg of amazing games coming. Following is a small selection of exciting video games across PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC all releasing this year.
Resident Evil 7
We wrote about Resident Evil 7 last year and exactly why people are getting excited about it. Bringing it back to its survival horror focus, even the demo has been freaking people out! Resident Evil 7 releases on PS4, Xbox One, and PC on January 24.
Tekken is a crazy popular classic fighting game that captured our hearts in the 90s. Finally making its debut on PC this year with Tekken 7: Fated Retribution, the franchise fan base is about to explode.
Days Gone is a new survival zombie game that claims to be a different RPG experience to other zombie games. The gameplay trailer blew people away with massive zombie hoards and features like the crafting system and bike that doubles as inventory are sure to please. Days Gone will release on PS4 sometime in 2017.
For Honor is an action melee game with Knights, Vikings, and Samurai by Ubisoft and is currently in beta registration stage. Also featuring multiplayer and single-player action, finally, gamers on every platform can battle with these three famous factions. For Honor releases February 14 on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands
Again from Ubisoft, comes Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Wildlands. Feedback on demos of the game has been mixed but game producers expect it to be as big as The Division. Moreover, Beta sign up is currently on and the game is due to release on PS4, Xbox One, and PC March, 7 this year.
Battalion 1944 is described as an ‘infantry based first person shooter with an emphasis on raw skill’. Said to take gamers back to the original Call of Duty and Medal of Honor days of gameplay, this Kickstarter game looks like a ton of fun. Closed alpha begins on PC May 2017.
God of War
Finally, this year God of War comes to PlayStation 4 and takes players and Kratos through an entirely new journey. This new beginning for the franchise has a Norse tone and thoughtful story while Kratos attempts to control his anger.

Mass Effect: Andromeda
Mass Effect has been a long time coming for fans and was pushed back from its initial 2016 release date. Now, Mass Effect: Andromeda will release in 2017 and includes a variety of new features like multiplayer and new characters. In fact, we discussed how huge Andromeda will be for Bioware last year.
