PlayStation has established itself as one of the premier consoles in the world for serious gamers, and that reputation has been cemented with the launch of the PlayStation 4 Pro, which features even better graphics designed for 4K screens. 2016 has been a bonanza year for the console, and 2017 promises to be better still. Here are just some of the titles (alphabetically arranged) you can look forward to in 2017:
For Honor: One of the most anticipated combat games of the year, this multiplayer epic pits knights, samurai and Vikings against each other in a series of duels on the battlefield. The combat features are excellent, according to early reviews, and the motion-captured graphics are impressively realistic.
God of War: is certainly not for the faint-hearted, but guarantees epic scenarios and plenty of adrenalin rushes. The award-winning series will bring its fourth update to the public in 2017. Main character Kratos has to set aside his all-consuming rage as he becomes a mentor to a young boy with supernatural powers. The new development promises to bring depth and contrast to a series famous for its brutal violence.
Horizon: Zero Dawn: This action RPG is exclusive to the PS4. All the action takes place 1000 years into the future, and mixes sci-fi with a good dollop of the prehistoric (youÔÇÖll have to hunt the robot dinosaurs that rule the land). The launch date for this has been delayed a bit to fine tune some features, so weÔÇÖre hoping for great things when the game hits the shelves.
Lego Worlds: Lego sets itself up as a competitor to Minecraft with the launch of its own game. Master Builders can create worlds with imagination being the only limit. Multiplayer options are also available.
Persona 5: This game is heading your way in April 2017. Previous versions of the role-play game follow high school students with supernatural powers in unusual circumstances. The story shifts with the fifth incarnation, as the game focuses on group of stylish young cat burglars. ItÔÇÖs all about funky sets, stylized backgrounds and hours of fun.
Resident Evil 7: Biohazard returns to its roots of survival horror, after a lukewarm reception for the 6th version of the series. Players explore the world from the first-person perspective. Prepare to be utterly terrified, as previews have suggested this is the scariest Resident Evil yet.
Now that you have your list of hotly anticipated titles, itÔÇÖs time to load up your co-branded gocash PlayStation card, which gives gamers (and their parents!) the security and control to purchase online with confidence. Happy gaming!
