4. The Surge
Release date: May 2017
Available on: PC, Xbox One, Playstation 4
One of the few on the list to truly be coming soon, The Surge is set to release in May and has been hailed as a Dark Souls-clone – and a good one at that. There are plenty of bosses, almost no cutscenes or cinematics, and the combat is challenging to say the least. Early reviews are strong. However, most are based only on the first few hours of gameplay. Hopefully, The Surge builds into a lengthy crescendo and fully earns the comparisons to one of the most-respected franchises in recent video game history.
3. Final Fantasy VII Remake
Release date: TBA 2017
Available on: Playstation 4
Arguably the best in the series (and possibly one of the best video games of all time), Final Fantasy VII is back and it’s so, so pretty. Though beautiful at the time, impressive advancements in graphics since its release was making this video game MVP feel a little dated. No more. The teaser trailer at E3 proved that the remake will again set the bar for stellar graphics in gaming. Now, let’s see if we can make it through this updated version without feeling utterly shattered by the end. You know what scene I’m talking about.
