Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands

Platform(s): PS4, Xbox One, PC
Release date:
March 7, 2017

Ubisoft has toned down on the tech in the game and focused more on team-based military ops. The tactical warfare takes place in modern day Bolivia as you and your squad work together to take down a drug cartel. Sounds good, right? Just wait for it.

Mass Effect: Andromeda

Platform(s): PS4, Xbox One, PC
Release date:
March 2017

Commander Shepard is back!! Oh, no, he/she is not! Its Commander Ryder now! Shepard defeated the Reapers and all but there’s plenty more fun left to be had in the Mass Effect universe. MEA is not a sequel to the original trilogy instead it’s an independent game. It’s not even a start of some other story. The game is set in the Andromeda galaxy which in reality is set for a collision course with the Milky Way galaxy in some million years. The game retains many elements of the trilogy though, setting up multiple endings by offering the player numerous choices in the game, the option to romance different characters (even aliens) and of course, the awesome third person shooter gameplay along with the amazing tech offered by the game. The game was originally slated to be released in late 2016 but it has been delayed. There is one bad news though. Considering the protests of the voice actors in the game, expect the date to be pushed back even further.

Tekken 7

Platform(s): PS4, Xbox One, PC
Release date:
Early 2017

Tekken is taking a lot of time to make the transition from Japanese arcades to Western consoles.

The game brings cool animations, a wide arsenal of combo moves and much more.

Persona 5

Platform(s): PS4, PS3
Release date:
April 2017

This RPG still follows high school students with supernatural powers in a highly stylized world. This game though represents a shift in tone of the series. The previous games followed typical teens in unusual circumstances but this game follows a group of flamboyant young cat burglars.
