The list goes on almost forever:Titanfall 2, Gears of War 4, World of Final Fantasy, Just Dance 2017, Lego Harry Potter Collection, Battlefield 1, Shadow Warrior 2, Batman: Return to Arkham, Mafia III, Paper Mario: Color Splash, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition, etc.Alongside that comes the launch of the PS VR, bringing with it Batman: Arkham VR, RIGS, DriveClub VR, Rez Infinite, and more.JC picks Gears of War 4: 11 October XB1/PCIt’s terrifying to think that it’s been 10 years since I first plopped that Gears of War disc into my Xbox 360.The whole series has been part of some of my fondest gaming experiences of the previous generation particularly in co op and while I think the overarching plot occasionally got away from itself, it totally deserves its place as one of the biggest franchises of the past decade.Third person cover shooters have come a long way in the interim due in no small part to the Gears games themselves so this latest instalment will need to bring some fresh ideas to table in order to work. But comebacks as go, this is definitely one to watch.Titanfall 2: 28 October XB1/PS4/PCThis follow up to 2014’s mech flavoured FPS looks keen to correct the mistakes of its forebear, with the inclusion of a proper single player mode and story this time around.To be honest, the first Titanfall was brimming with enough good ideas and solid gunplay that the lack of a true solo campaign was the really the only thing wrong with it, so my hopes are high for this sequel.It most likely won be knocking Call of Duty off its perch this year, but given the franchise potential I hoping Titanfall 2 is good enough to at least give COD a run for its money.Warhammer: End Times Vermintide: 4 October XB1/PS4In a nutshell, this is essentially Left 4 Dead set in Games Workshop’s Warhammer universe, with freaky humanoid rat people instead of zombies.
