Major Games to be released in 2017

With the many gaming consoles we have today like Sony’s PlayStation 4, Microsoft’s Xbox One, and Nintendo’s Wii U, and major gaming platforms like Steam (which operates on Microsoft Windows operating system), there are hundreds of games that are released annually.

During 2016 alone, Metacritic recorded more than 950 games on it. With this large number of games, whether with their type, graphics, or own storyline, there are some that are more popular and more successful than others. Games with their own complex storyline and scenarios are gaining popularity just like Final Fantasy which has been going for 30 years now.

Choosing one of these games is hard to do. This also becomes difficult with sports games that are updated and released annually like EA FIFA Soccer and Pro Evolution Soccer. In this article, we included the most popular and appealing games that will be released in 2017 so that you can find your preference.

God of War

 God of War Game

With the huge success the fantasy gaming series God of War made, the 2017 release has many changes. These changes are mainly in the beloved and complex environment. Even though the famous hero will remain the center of the game, the events will change to include mythology and the Norse Myths (Scandinavian myths and legends) instead of the usual Greek Mythology.

It is also expected that the game will be less violent that the previous releases since it was considered one the most violent and bloodiest games.

This game is very similar to Mortal Combat since it is released by the same manufacturing company. Even though they are similar, Injustice 2 uses DC Comic characters to fight.

The new game includes famous characters like Batman, Superman, Aquaman, and many other DC characters. And being supported by Xbox One and PlayStation 4, and Computers powered by Windows, makes it even more popular.

There are more than 1000 game that are released annually and so we could only include the most popular and anticipated games of 2017.

It is worth noting that expectations this year also state that there will be two additional important releases for the two famous games Assassin’s Creed and Call of Duty. But the producing companies have not confirmed any information yet. The edition names are still unknown and there is no definitive information about either of them.
