We are in 2018 now, and now it’s the perfect time to welcome new PS4 gaming titles. There are a lot of cool games releasing this year on the console, but we’ve decided to choose the most anticipated PS4 video games of 2018.
First, on the list, we have Monster Hunter: World. This is an action-RPG series developed by Capcom. The origin started on the PS2 and took off in Japan when Capcom developed the Monster Hunter Freedom games for PSP. The core of Monster Hunter is co-operative multiplayer in which players hunt the beasts together. The four-player local wireless play made the PSP game a legitimate phenomenon in Japan. The game is set to release on January 26.
Next, we have Anthem. You play as a Freelancer, granted with confronting the wilderness around a walled city to protect the mankind from the threats. This means to protect the city from the huge, savage beasts and some armed enemies going by the name Scars. In order to survive, you will need a Javelin exosuit. These will allow you to fly and are also heavily packed with weapons and abilities. You will be able to get multiple Javelin suits for different situations, and can also customize their looks. There is no official release date yet, but we expect to see its release Fall 2018. Update: The game is postponed to early 2019.
Our next choice is God of War. The game will have elements that are similar to role-playing games, like archery knowledge points and a Spartan Rage timed ability during a battle. This ability is a new take on the ”Rage” ability of the previous installments. There is also a crafting resource for the player to find. The installment has a third-person and an over-the-shoulder free camera, unlike the previous installments. The major change is that Kratos will not use his signature double-chained blades since he lost these at the conclusion of God of War III. To replace this, he will use a magical battle axe, which is infused with the elemental abilities and thrown at enemies. There is no official release date yet, but we hope to see it early 2018.
Far Cry 5 is our fourth choice. The game is with the official release date, March 27. This is a first-person shooter action-adventure open world game, developed by Ubisoft Montreal. This is the fifth title in the series which is set to release on February 27, 2018, for PS4. “Far Cry is about two things. It’s definitely about chaos, and there’s a lot of that in this. But it’s also about building a beautiful world” as announced by Executive Producer and Creative Director Dan Hay.
There is another eye-catching adventure from Josef Fares, the creator of the heartbreaking indie title Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons. Only this time, the two players have to work together to break the characters Leo and Vincent out of prison in the game called A Way Out. After that, they have to help them avoid the authorities. It is said that the different characters have to build trust and friendship as they go. The game is set to release on March 23.
Red Dead Redemption 2 is our choice No.6. The unveiling of Red Dead Redemption 2 was followed up by Sony with an official statement regarding exclusivity. Gratefully, it is not drastic, but they said that PlayStation users will be granted an exclusive early access to Red Dead Online’s DLC. That means leaving Xbox One players “in front of the door” for an unspecified amount of time. It is a statement that will upset the bigger part of the crowd, and excite others. Sony will be glad for the extra sales from it. Red Dead Redemption 2 has gained legendary status in the industry. Maybe this deal will make a strong friendship between Sony and Rockstar. Exclusivity is inconvenient for some, but it works for a profit. The official release date is yet to be announced.
Next, we have We Happy Few. This is upcoming PS4 survival horror game, where your character named Arthur uses Joy to stay high and happy. The gameplay takes place in ’60s England. Your mission is to complete specific tasks for a limited time. Failure will lead you back at the very beginning and you’ll have to start all over again. The game is set to launch on April 13.
For last, we have Spider-Man. This is an upcoming action-adventure game, based on Marvel’s superhero Spidey. For the first time in the history of Spider-Man, the game doesn’t have any connection to a movie or comic book. Get ready to experience a whole new Spider-Man hero! There is no official release date, but we expect to see its launch Q1/Q2 2018.
Although we are at the very beginning of 2018, it looks like this will be a great year for the gaming community. For last, we’ve made a list of every video game confirmed for 2018 on PS4, so feel free and check it out here.
