2015 was a great year in video games. We saw a lot of successful ones like The Witcher III, Fallout 4, Star Wars Battlefront and many more. It’s worth noting that many of them fall into the open world category, so we can safely say that 2015 was the year of open world games. There are also a lot of great open world multiplayer games that you can play in a dedicated game server such as Ark: Survival Evolved and Dying Light. Now that 2015 is over, we’re looking forward to the games of 2016. Let’s have a look at some of the year’s most anticipated games.
Far Cry Primal
This newest addition to the Far Cry series will bring you back to the prehistoric times. Instead of modern weapons, you’ll be using the tools of our ancestors. In addition to that, you will become the king of the wild, commanding almost every animal to fight alongside you. Just like its predecessors, Far Cry Primal will bring you to a vast open world that you can explore as much as you like. You’ll encounter many dangerous foes like prehistoric beasts and opposing tribes, which lurks in many corners waiting to rip you into pieces.
No Man’s Sky
Deemed as the “biggest game ever”, No Man’s Sky will allow you to explore a vast universe filled with countless galaxies, planets and stars, and by countless, I mean infinite. This game is procedurally generated as you play the game, so as you progress, new locations, star systems and galaxies emerge. You won’t be exploring the game alone, though, as there will also be other players who’re going to explore the vast universe too. There will be chances that you can meet some of them, but not all of them because each player spawns thousands of light years away from each other.
Street Fighter 5
Street Fighter 4, released back in 2008, brought new life into the fighting genre. With that, the upcoming sequel, Street Fighter 5, finds itself in a rather interesting spot. The newest iteration into one of the most iconic fighting games will bring new mechanics, revamped graphics and even new characters. This is surely another game to watch out for.
Dark Souls 3
The final installment of one of the most difficult games, Dark Souls 3 will set the conclusion for the epic trilogy. Just like its previous games you can expect a lot of bloody fights, epic boss battles and some of the best enemy designs.
Blood and gore. Shotguns and more gore. This new Doom reboot is faithful to the original in terms of gameplay and mechanics. The new graphics and wonderful old shooter mechanics are further enhanced by the addition of gruesome execution moves that will allow players to dismember stunned enemies, rip arms and more. Kinda like Fatality from Mortal Kombat.
Those are just some of the most anticipated games of 2016. This year will surely come with a lot more to watch out for.
