With 2016 now a distant memory, it’s time to cast our eyes forward to the coming year. Here’s what’s on the slate for 2017 – provided nothing gets delayed, of course. Let’s get excited!

Mass Effect Andromeda

Ah yes – thanks to delays, this one also made our “Most Anticipated Games” list last year, but we’re including it again for old time’s sake. Maybe this time it’ll actually see the light of day? TBC

Days Gone

Before you go, “Oh, not another zombie game,” Days Gone is running on the Unreal Engine 4 and features music composed by Nathan Whitehead, who you’ll have heard in Gears of War, Infamous, and even Ratchet & Clank. So it’s like the best bits of zombie games all rolled into one. TBC

God of War

Kratos is back. Need we say more? This time he’s stepped away from the whole God thing, and is trying his hand at fatherhood. Wonder how long that’ll last? TBC

Prey

From the studio that brought us Dishonored comes Prey – a revisiting of the 2006 title of the same name. Spearheaded by Raf Colantonio and with music by an Aussie, you need to give this one a look. It’s set in a space station under threat. TBC

Red Dead Redemption 2

This will be the Magnificent Seven and Westworld of the video game world – well, if you don’t consider the original is already that. John’s back, and it looks like he’s brought with him a posse of sauntering mates. TBC

Sea of Thieves

One of the most left-field surprises of this year’s E3, Sea of Thieves was an outstanding title for most in attendance. Developed by Rare, you can take to the high seas and pillage and plunder as you please. Multiplayer included. TBC

Telltale’s Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy

Telltale haven’t released a bad game, so when you combine their prolific storytelling with Marvel’s immersive Guardians of the Galaxy series, there’s more than an Awesome Mix full of potential. Absolutely pumped. Come and get your love. TBC
