Upcoming Games 2016 (Part 1)

Upcoming Games 2016 (Part 1)

Many around the world would say that 2016 was a bad year. This year witnessed the loss of legends like Gene Wilder, Muhammad Ali, Prince, Alan Rickman, David Bowie to name a few.

On the contrary, it’s been a good year in gaming so far. 2016 has seen the release of some popular titles like Far Cry Primal, Dark Souls III, Uncharted 4, Doom, Overwatch, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided. The year has also seen some good Indie games like Oxenfree, Firewatch, and That Dragon, Cancer to name a few. These assortment of games go across genres and platforms, appealing to gamers of all sorts.

Here is a list of games (till the beginning of November) that we can look forward to

PES 2017

Pro Evolution Soccer is probably the only reason why the FIFA franchise is kept on their toes. Konami is the only studio, other than EA Sports that invests in a football video game. A couple of years ago the competition between the two was stiff, but FIFA seemed to dominate this sport the last two years. PES is due for a comeback, but can it do with FIFA 17 bringing to life their best iteration of the game?

Release Date: 15th September



This Xbox One exclusive shows promise. From the makers of Mega Man and Metroid Prime comes this game about the last few remaining humans on earth along with their friendly companions who tackle obstacles and enemy robots to try rebuild humanity.

Release Date: 16th September


NBA 2K17

The 18th installment of the game is set to release mid way September. The game will simulate the experience of the National Basketball Association (NBA). Several games modes like MvCareer allow you to customise your player and journey through their career.

Release Date: 16th September


Bioshock  The Collection

Release Date: 19th September


Forza Horizon 3

This game is known for it’s good looks and it has kept upto that very expectation. This time around racers will cruise through the open world set in the land down under.

Release Date: 27th September



Frostbite engine, set piece rewrite, active intelligence system, physical play overhaul, new attacking techniques and managers. What else can I say really, other than “Own Every Moment.

Release Date: 29th September


Mafia III

One of the most anticipated games of the year, Mafia III is set to come out by the first week of October. The game is set in 1968 in New Orleans and sees players take on the role of Lincoln Clay, a Vietnamese by birth, whose family has had a long history with organised crime.

WWE 2K17

WWE 2K17 sees the return of fighting in the crowd, which involves fighting through the crowd and into the backstage areas. This also sees the return of the backstage brawls. The game responsiveness has been improved greatly.

Release Date: 11th October


Battlefield 1


The new Battlefield that is coming out isn’t Battlefield 5 like everyone might have expected. Instead it’s Battlefield 1, and as you must have guessed (and probably heard by now), the game is set in World War 1. The open beta game us an insight into what we can expect from the game and it looks amazing!

This crucial step of moving back and portraying the brutality of what war looked like back then has paid for itself as it has already won over millions of fans across the world especially after Call of duty’s 2016’s space sci-fi game.

Release Date: 21st October


Civilization VI


It’s been about six years since the last Civilization installment, so it was just a matter of time before we saw this franchise being brought back to life. The turn based strategy game has sold over 33 million copies worldwide till date, so we can keep our hopes up on this one.

Release Date: 21st October


Titanfall 2


Following the success of Titanfall which gathered approximately 10 million players, it’s not a surprise that the sequel is highly awaited. Titanfall 2 features a multi-platform allowing more players to join in on the fun.

Release Date: 28th October


Call of Duty Infinite Warfare


Following the failure of Advanced Warfare, one would assume that Activision would let go off the whole sci-fi theme. But to everyone’s disappointment, it was announced that the game would be set in the future with a space/sci-fi theme.

Fans didn’t take too well to this news as the game’s launch trailer became one of the most disliked videos on YouTube. The only redeeming quality is that Infinite Warfare comes with a remastered version of Call of Duty Modern Warfare.

Release Date: 4th November


Dishonored 2


Bethesda used its first ever E3 press conference to announce that Dishonored 2 is a 2016 release. Arkane Studios and Bethesda are keeping mum about Dishonored 2’s gameplay, other than the cinematic debut trailer, so we’re going to have to wait and watch how this unfolds.

Release Date 11th November
