Biggest Games Coming in Late 2016

Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare is finally out! To many gamers, the well-known first-person shooter marks the final title they will purchase this year. Understandably so. If you adore excellent video games (and who doesn't?), 2016 has unquestionably been a tough year for your wallet. Top-notch releases such as Uncharted 4, Doom, Inside, Titanfall 2, Ratchet and Clank, and The Rise of the Tomb Raider have all lived up to their enormous expectations. Having said that, the year is far from over! Today, we'll go over the biggest titles being put out before 2017 arrives. Let's get to it:

5. Steep

Steep is an open world sports game based on all the extreme winter mountain moments we witness incredible athletes perform on the X-Games. With absolutely gorgeous visuals, the game allows you to snowboard, paraglide, ski, and wingsuit your way through Alaska and the Alps. To be honest, I'm yet to be fully convinced by whether or not this one will pan out. I enjoy snow, physic-defying acrobatics, and playing with friends. Having said that, we don't know a whole lot on how Steep actually works, both in gameplay or purpose. Hopefully. this marks the debut of Ubisoft's next major franchise.

Release Date: December 2, 2016
Platforms: PS4, X1, PC

4. Dishonored 2

When Arkane Studios' original Dishonored came out, players and reviewers alike were shocked by how good the title was. A stealth adventure, the game offered a great amount of freedom on how to approach each level, even allowing you to finish the campaign without killing a single body. Less than a week until its sequel comes out, Bethesda is promising to deliver an even better experience. An improved story, crisper gameplay, and good dialogue are everything this one needs to meet my expectations.

Release Date: November 11, 2016
Platforms: PS4, X1, PC

3. Watch Dogs 2

The original Watch Dogs was a good game. That's about it. To be perfectly honest, it simply wasn't the breathtaking open-world we were all looking for. However, you could sense raw potential. Luckily, Ubisoft is back with a sequel, and I love what I'm seeing so far. A new protagonist, new location (San Francisco), smooth parkour mechanics, beautiful graphics, and a soundtrack featuring artists like Pharrell and Run The Jewels. Crossing my fingers Ubi pulls through with an equally impressive narrative, but this should undoubtedly be a better title than its predecessor.

Release Date: November 15, 2016
Platforms: PS4, X1, PC

2. The Last Guardian

After more than a decade in development, it's finally coming out. I repeat: THE LAST GUARDIAN WILL BE RELEASED. In no shape or form do I believe this will be a masterpiece, but I just want to get my hands on the case and find out: who the hell is this huge bird and what are we supposed to do? My questions sound fairly simple, but they've remained unanswered for the better part of PlayStation's modern history. If you're even remotely a fan of the PS platform, you know about Fumito Ueda's next project. This December, we get to play it.

Release Date: December 6, 2016
Platforms: PS4

1. Final Fantasy XV

To top our list, we get to another title that has been incubating for the longest time. The game was announced almost 10 years ago. Fast forward to November 2016, and it's still not out. Finally, it looks like Final Fantasy 15 will be released this year. And at this point, I just want to know if it's good or not. This is one of those cases in which the story behind the development cycle will probably be more dramatic and interesting than the plot of the game itself. Either way, this is the biggest release for the remainder of this year. From all I've seen, I presume this won't disappoint fans of the acclaimed franchise.

Release Date: November 29, 2016
Platforms: PS4, X1
