Elder Scrolls Online: Summerset (Expansion)
Summerset.png
The Elder Scrolls Online: Summerset is the next Chapter of ZeniMax Online Studios' award-winning online RPG, The Elder Scrolls Online (ESO). This new adventure in the ESO saga will send adventurers and their friends to the Summerset Isle, to visit and explore the ancestral home of the high elves for the first time since 1994's The Elder Scrolls: Arena. Players will also be able to explore the island of Artaeum, home to the mysterious Psijic Order, a group of sages that predate the Mages Guild. Tamriel's fate hangs in the balance and the heroes of ESO are called upon to save the world once more.

This year's Chapter introduces an enormous and stunning new zone unlike any other, a fresh skill line with new magical powers to master, an expanded crafting system to forge powerful gear, and the continuation of the epic and award-winning ESO story. With more than 30 hours of new story content to experience, The Elder Scrolls Online: Summerset expands The Elder Scrolls Online in exciting and innovative ways, offering incredible adventures for both ESO veterans and those new to the game.

Jurassic World Evolution
Jurassic World.png
Place yourself at the heart of the Jurassic franchise and build your own Jurassic World. Take charge of operations on the legendary islands of the Muertes archipelago and bring the wonder, majesty and danger of dinosaurs to life. Build for Science, Entertainment or Security interests in an uncertain world where life always finds a way.

Bioengineer dinosaurs that think, feel and react intelligently to the world around them. Play with life itself to give your dinosaurs unique behaviours, traits and appearances, then contain and profit from them to fund your global search for lost dinosaur DNA. Control the big picture with deep management tools or go hands-on to confront challenges on the ground or in the air. Expand your islands and choose your own journey in an all-new narrative featuring iconic characters from across the franchise and decades of Jurassic lore at your fingertips.

Anthem
Anthem.png
One of the most-anticipated non-sequels this year, Anthem is the first new IP from Mass Effect studio BioWare since the Dragon Age series debuted in 2009. Arriving late this year for XB1, PS4, and PC, the game is a multiplayer, online, sci-fi shooter with RPG elements that looks an awful lot like Bungie's hit Destiny.

There are still relatively few details known about the game, which was first unveiled last summer at E3. But, like Destiny, Anthem takes place in a huge, shared universe that extends well beyond Earth. Your job, as a "Freelancer," is to explore planets and protect humanity from a variety of non-human threats. Fortunately, you can team up with other players to do so, and you will have a customizable, jetpack-equipped exosuit called a "Javelin" to give you an added boost. Developed by the studio behind 2003's stellar Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, Anthem will share Star Wars's (rather than Mass Effect's) approach to sci-fi—one that is actually less concerned with scientific explanations and more like fantasy

Break.png

Metro Exodus
Metro.png
In Metro Exodus, Artyom and a band of survivors must flee the shattered ruins of the Moscow Metro and embark on an epic, continent-spanning journey across the post-apocalyptic Russian wilderness. Explore vast, non-linear levels, lose yourself in an immersive, sandbox survival experience, and follow a story-line that spans an entire year in the greatest Metro adventure yet.

Break.png

Skull & Bones
SkullBones.png
We are in the Golden Age of Pirates. Renegade captains command the most powerful weapons on Earth, warships. You assume the role of an upstart pirate captain who has refused the King’s pardon and sailed from the Caribbean to the Indian Ocean, an untamed frontier full of lavish riches. However, these waters are also a battleground where far-reaching colonial empires, powerful trading corporations, and ruthless pirate gangs ferociously clash. In order to survive, you must build a lethal fleet, prey upon lucrative trade routes, and ally with other pirates to join the endless struggle for supremacy.

Break.png

Tropico 6
Tropico.png
The city-builder/sim franchise, which pits you as El Presidente, the leader (dictator?) of a fictitious banana republic, has a few changes in store for its sixth installment (the first since 2015's Tropico 5). For the first time, you can build bridges—literally, as the setting is a large archipelago in the Caribbean, putting you in charge of multiple islands at once. Gameplay spans four separate areas ranging from colonial times to the present day. There are new transportation options, and you'll be able to steal wonders of the world (like the Statue of Liberty) from other countries and bring them to your people. Expect a new visual look as well, since Tropico 6 comes from a developer (Limbic Entertainment) that is new to the series.

Cyberpunk 2077
cyberpunk.png
Coming off their hit series The Witcher, CD Projekt is currently in the process of developing their next release, Cyberpunk 2077. Little is know about the upcoming RPG narrative but what has been announced is that the game will be set in the distant future. Likewise, the open-world gameplay will likely promise a wide variety of quests and campaigns for players to complete though that’s purely speculative at this point. With E3 right around the corner, we’re hoping some official news is shared on the upcoming title such as the narrative and possibly gameplay mechanics.

Break.png

Dual Universe (Like a "better" No Man's Sky)
dual.png
This is an upcoming title that very well might not officially release within 2017 as developers hope to release an alpha version next year. Overall, Dual Universe seems to be quite ambitious and even said to combine elements from Minecraft, No Man’s Sky, Eve Online, Star Citizen, and Space Engineers.

Players will share a massive single universe with the ability to edit game worlds by adding structures, altering terrain, along with creating ship scripts and constructs. Dual Universe will focus on collective gameplay with gamers exploring, mining, trading, crafting, and creating in-game politics.

Break.png

Black Desert Online (Out for PC)
blackdesert.png
Black Desert Online is already available by developers Pearl Abyss, however, the game is only available on the PC platform. However, soon the game will be launching on the Xbox One platform, where gamers will have a new MMORPG to enjoy with friends.

This is a fantasy MMORPG where two rival nations are at war and as a result, there will be quests and missions to take on. Likewise, there is a dynamic weather system, day and night cycle, player housing, active combat system, and mounts.

Gamers can work together in the campaign quests or go against each other in PvP areas. Currently, the game is set to the only launch on the Xbox One outside of the PC platform. Of course, we’ll be keeping an eye on any changes

Break.png

Death Stranding
deathstranding.png
The first video game title to release under the Kojima Productions will be Death Stranding and if one thing is certain, no one knows just what to expect from the video game title. There’s a ton of secrecy surrounding it with trailers and teasers only adding fuel to the hype of this upcoming Hideo Kojima production.

Project Wight
projectwight.png
Project Wight isn't just your standard RPG, it's an alternate-history role-playing game that's about seeing the world from the view of the hunted rather than the hunter. The best part is that these hunted creatures are supernatural beings that can cause a lot of damage to their human hunters.

Mavericks: Proving Grounds
mavericks.png
Mavericks is a revolutionary open world shooter built using the latest in low-latency networking technology combined with beautiful visuals in our bleeding-edge version of CryEngine. The result is a high-fidelity, dynamic world with destructibility and persistence enabling you to leave your impact on the world for everyone to see.

It's so hard for me to choose between all of these great games, which I look forward to the most... But I had to go ahead and choose Anthem, since it's been on my mental-list of anticipated game. It was a very close tie with Metro Exodus, however!

I saw the reveal of Death Stranding, though... Very intriguing. I look forward to finding out more about it, as it's still very mysterious!

Ugh the stress of having to pick one has made my eye start to twitch. I need a nap, BBL!

This post is a difficult one to answer for me! I have been awaiting a couple games for a while, Anthem notably. As I have numerous hours in the Mass Effect series (Minus Andromeda) I am very vigilantly awaiting any and all news and gameplay of Anthem. However, even with this being fact, I am much much MUCH more excited for Metro: Exodus. I played the Metro series, 2033 and Last Light, and instantly fell in love about 5 years ago. Ever since putting more hours than I care to admit into these two games, I had a feeling of immense joy when I heard they would indeed continue the series.

So I chose the most basic game on this list: Black Ops 4. Seems pretty lame but I got a lot of enjoyment out of the Call of Duty series until about Black Ops 2. After that, I made the mistake of buying CoD: Ghosts and ever since then, no Call of Duty game has ever lived up to my expectations. However, after looking at the release trailers for Black Ops 4, I see a promising game to come that will live up to my standards.
Doesn't mean I am going to preorder it, or even buy it as soon as it comes out though (I'm still skeptical). Also, I am upset that they are removing a single player campaign in order to make space for a battle royale mode, but at the same time, the battle royale mode does look to be promising and I have a history of enjoying BR styled games.

I also was considering choosing Anthem as my #1, and so I looked up a bit of information about the game and found out it was being published by EA... normally I wouldn't fall to judge a game solely on their publisher, but I immediately thought it looked exactly like both Destiny and Titanfall, and so I was turned off by the fact that EA is still just trying to make a game just different enough to get people to buy another $60 game. With that being said, if it turns out to be a good game and it's not just a reskinned Titanfall, then I will consider purchasing.

As for other games, many of them seem to just be like every other game. Tropico 6, Dual Universe, and Skull & Bones have all been done a dozen times over again and only slightly differ from each other.

I agree with the statement that a lot of these games have been done many times before, but I also argue that that is a very smart play. Games that just keep going and delivering familiar gameplay are important to the gaming community. I say this because many people like familiar. They like routine. They like comfortable. Not only does this apply to their lives, but also to their games. So that someone would be anticipating a run of the mill over done game is common, and shows the diversity within gaming as a whole.

Videos for each game have been added. Ugh, now I wish I chose Metro! Hahaha!
Cyberpunk 2077 looks beautiful though! Wow!
