Cologne just keeps on giving, as the Gamescom trailers keep on coming. We posted 10 of the best earlier in the week (which you can check out here), and now we’ve got another 10 for you. Erm, plus a bonus one…
Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown
At first sight it might look like a flight sim, but action is the key to this series of thrilling combat games. This hot-looking first iteration for now-gen machines, due in 2018, will feature local two-player co-op and a special mode for those equipped with PlayStation VR.
Dragon Ball FighterZ
The next 2.5D fighting game set in the DB universe, FighterZ will see players creating a team of three characters with which to do battle, all switchable on the fly. Could this be THE next big competitive fighting game once it hits early in 2018?
Farming Simulator 17: Platinum Edition
Hey, if you think tractors are sexy or just want to get back in touch with the land, you can do it here without working up a sweat – ya flamin’ lazy mongrel! Sorry, somebody let Alf Stewart in – he’s gone now. With bales of new stuff, this bolstered release will deliver 275 authentic farming vehicles and a whole new area to harvest.
Australia’s so hot right now – well, if you’re up north. But in games it’s red hot. This one, from MotoGP people Milestone, is all about the offroading, racing around the world from Australia to Alaska with a bunch of places in-between. Real cars also feature, including the mighty Ford Fiesta ST.
.hack//G.U.: Last Recode
Promising the definitive .hack//G.U. experience for both fans and newcomers, this package gathers the three .hack//G.U. action-RPG games – Rebirth, Reminisce and Redemption – together, bumps them up with updated 1080p at 60fps and also takes time to add some other cool stuff.
Declaring itself hardcore – or at least those charged with promoting it are – this third-person action RPG takes place in a dark, sci-fi universe. Time is running out for the world and your skills are needed – but you’re an amnesiac. Pressure! It’s due in 2018 for PS4 and Xbox One.
Just Dance 2018
It’s time to set the vocoder to stun, as the super-popular JD franchise gives us its yearly outing of a few songs we know and a bunch of other stuff. This one will have everything from Boney M to a dancing sheep. Really! The new Gamescom song drop is next, followed by the first announce just in case you’re bummed because you missed it the first time.
Hey, when a game boasts “real-time mud technology” we’re intrigued! Obviously, this one – which is chock full of 19 really big trucks and suchlike – does. The first Spintires was a huge seller on PC, but this one’s coming to PS4 and Xbox One as well. As you may have guessed, we’re about to type the words “available sometime in 2018”. See? We’re so predictable – but we may be deceiving you, as it could very well pop before we do the see-ya-later-2017 thing.
Sword Art Online: Fatal Bullet
Until recently known under the code name ‘Projekt 1514’, that number representing “SAO” numerically (we’ll leave you to work it out – or we’ll tell if you get stuck, just ask us), this latest iteration will come to the PS4, Xbox One and PC sometime after we recover from our next New Year’s celebrations.
Yakuza 6: The Song of Life
The final chapter of Kazuma Kiryu, the Dragon of Dojima, will soon be winding up when this hits on March 20, 2018. Exclusive to PS4, it’s been developed from the ground up for Sony’s machine. Oh, and it’s “100% certified thugifed OG”, so how can you go wrong?
