We've got 'Now Gaming' and even a 'Just Finished Gaming' thread, but what about upcoming titles? What upcoming games are you excited about and why? My current list:
Far Cry 5
As generic as the games can be, Far Cry 3 and 4 were my go to stupid action game in their respective release years. Far Cry 5 offers character customisation and will apparently have a strong coop focus. Win win on both points.
Destiny 2 (PC)
Interesting that they are bringing this to PC after the console exclusive originally. I'm not particularly looking forward to this one as I know very little about the whole thing. However, with an upcoming open beta, I am definitely going to try it out and see how I feel afterwards.
Pillars of Eternity 2
Though I never had the money to back their crowdfunding campaign, after falling in love with the classic RPG style of the original, as well as Tyranny, the game developed with the earnings from PoE, PoE2 seems to just pile on more of the RPG stuff that I love about the original. Meaningful choices, branching story missions and plenty of customisation, all set in a world that's genuinely interesting to explore.
I do secretly wish Obsidian would just make another Fallout game, but Bethesda isn't likely to allow it.
Probably even more obscure this one. An open world isometric RPG with physics driven content and permadeath. I bought the tech demo they released 'Exanima,' which gives you a singleplayer dungeon crawl mode, and a career Arena mode which lets you build up a set of champions to fight in the arena. These champions can die from a single fatal blow, which is always a real punch to the gut when you've invested hours into levelling one guy.
The developers have gone quiet since February however, with no more updates to Examina since. This either means they're simply knuckling down to get the main game Sui Generis done, or... They may have gone under.
