We’re halfway through the year of 2016 and while it has certainly been an eventful one with a huge amount of game releases, the year isn’t over yet, and there’s still more to come. While most of the high profile releases have already arrived, there’s still a few more in the pipeline to look forward to. Let’s take a look at what’s left in 2016.
This week, players can look forward to Watch Dogs 2, which is reviewing rather well on the single player front. Reported issues with online are abound, but the game isn’t released yet so hopefully that’s all sorted before the week is out.
Assassin’s Creed: The Ezio Collection also launches tomorrow, bringing three remastered Assassin’s Creed titles from the Ezio era, including the excellent Assassin’s Creed 2 and its two sequels Brotherhood and Revelations.
Also releasing this week is the game of the year version of Star Wars Battlefront, or Ultimate Edition if you will, which includes all available DLC to date. Darksiders: Warmastered Edition arrives on November 22nd, remastering the first game after the remaster of the second game appealed to fans.
The Amnesia Collection, will scare the wits out of players on PC and PlayStation 4 starting on November 22nd, which would have been better if it released during Halloween.
Final Fantasy XV is still to come, with a release date of November 29th. That will keep RPG fans happy into early 2017, so if you find some of your friends are completely missing during the holiday, it’s probably for this reason.
Ubisoft’s Steep as well as The Last Guardian are also on their way too, with December releases. Steep should appeal to the Red Bull drinking adrenaline gamers, while The Last Guardian should be on the list for PlayStation fans with an interest in Ico and Shadow of the Colossus. They arrive on December 2nd and 7th respectively.
Dead Rising 4 will offer Xbox One fans the opportunity to slay zombies in the most creative ways, from December 6th.
There are a few other less notable releases buried under this pile, with the likes of The Crew and its ‘Calling All Units’ expansion being one of the more interesting looking ones. A great game, and this expansion should build on that.
