New titles, new chapters and new experiences
Let the others have their movies—as long as the rest of us still have our games. This year is going to be an amazing one, with several of the biggest names in gaming coming back for next chapters. Then again, we can’t wait to get our hands on the new players entering the market as well.
Attack on Titan 2
March 2018; PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC
Set in the anime’s second season, it looks like Attack on Titan 2 is going to be a lot more involved than its predecessor. New RPG elements have been added to the title, such as being able to build relationships with the different characters from the series. There are also additional support and stealth gameplay elements.
Ni no Kuni 2: Revenant Kingdom
March 2018; PlayStation 4 and PC
Studio Ghibli’s magic makes it to the console world once again in this endearing ad magical title. The small cast in a beautiful world makes the JRPG of our dreams. Telling the story of Evan Pettiwhisker Tildrum who wants to create a land of happily-ever-after. After being dethroned, Evan joins forces with Roland and Sky Pirate Tani to travel the world and start anew.
God of War

Kratos enters a new realm with his son, Atreus who is eager and determined to win over his father’s respect. But as he works together with his father to fulfill his mother’s last wish to have her ashes spread across the realms’ highest point, Atreus will face his father’s past as a god-killer.
“We are not men. We are more than that,” Kratos says. “The responsibility is far greater.”

Acting as the follow-up to 2014’s Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth, there is a lot of anticipation for Person Q2. And while there isn’t much information on it just yet, it looks as if the characters of Persona 5 will be front and center—if the Phantom Thieves logo on the Japanese teaser website is anything to go on.
Red Dead Redemption 2
October 2018; PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC
Western titles do not get enough attention in the gaming world, but we’re fortunate enough to get Red Dead Redemption 2 this year. A Battle Royale mode is coming to the game, which may not be a surprise to some people, as well as other multiplayer modes such as Revive and Survive and Money Grab. And get ready, because the campaign will be based on character choice and morality-based decisions.
