The end of 2013 is nearly here and we’ll soon be celebrating xmas again before we know where we are.
However, you’ve got some big games coming to ps4 in 2014, here are some you must at least try.
Elder Scrolls Online:
Released in june 2014 for console, elder scrolls online will be a mmorpg game, your character will be persistent and it sounds promising, the combat in elder scrolls games is not that great and could be an issue.The Elder Scrolls Online had been in development for 5 years prior to its announcement in May 2012. It is the first project for ZeniMax Online Studios, which was formed in 2007. Matt Firor, studio lead at Zenimax Online, is also the director of The Elder Scrolls Online.
While there have been rumors of a massively multiplayer The Elder Scrolls game for years, accurate information about the game and its imminent May 2012 announcement was leaked in March 2012 to online publication Tom’s Guide by an anonymous industry source. According to the leak, the game was scheduled to be shown at E3 2012 in June (which it was) and QuakeCon 2012 in August. The current release date is April 4, 2014 for PC.
Another MMO type game in the form of a shooter, it’s not to bloated, and keeps things fresh, battling on a planet for victories and bonuses for your faction.
No ps plus sub is required as this is a free to play game.
There are six unique player classes in PlanetSide 2. Each class has several unique weapons and special abilities. For each class new weapons, upgrades and abilities can be acquired using in-game certifications. In addition each class can earn ribbons and medals to earn additional certifications. The classes are as follows:
- The Infilitrator is a sniper class with special abilities of cloaking and hacking.
- The Light Assault class is a scout who uses Carbines, Submachine Guns and shotguns. The Light Assault’s special ability is Jump Jets which allow the player to fly through the air for a short period of time.
- The Combat Medic is a healing class. Their weapons include Assault Rifles, Shot Guns and Submachine Guns. The Combat Medic’s special ability allows the player to heal and resurrect other players.
- The Engineer class has the special ability of repairing vehicles and Max class players. The engineer also has the ability to build anti-infantry and anti-vehicle turrets. The Engineer’s weapons include Carbines, Shot Guns and Submachine Guns.
- The Heavy Assault class has weapons of Rocket Launchers effective at destroying enemy vehicles. They also have the special ability of shields to help them endure heavy fire.
- The MAX class has a mobile armored suit that allows them to take significant damage before dying. However, due to the suit they are also the slowest class. They have both anti-infantry and anti-vehicle weapons.
Battle other players on land, sea and air, let’s just hope people get it.
Alot of fps games recently i feel are adding more and more features which are starting to make them boring, to much choice is also a bad thing.
A game which looks really stunning and truly “next gen”. On 18 October 2013, Sony announced that Driveclub will be delayed until early 2014. In a statement posted on the PlayStation Blog, the company states that, “SCE Worldwide Studios and the team at Evolution Studios have made the difficult decision to delay the release of Driveclub and Driveclub PlayStation Plus Edition until early 2014,” Sony worldwide studios boss Shuhei Yoshida explained. “Driveclub will be a truly innovative, socially connected racing game, but the team requires more time in order to deliver on their vision – and I’m fully confident the game will surpass your expectations.”
The ps plus edition will feature almost the same features as the retail version, minus a few cars and tracks, it also looks set to make a social buzz by allowing you to take pictures and mingle in realtime lobbies with friends.
The game looks nice and from eurogamer i saw it also plays nice.
We will have to see how the game plays out, we don’t want micro transactions or any pay to win material in there, otherwise it’s just not gunna go down well.
Infamous – Second Son:
Gameplay will be similar to the previous entries, sharing the open world element. Delsin will use the chain wrapped around his arm as his main melee weapon, which will be used in conjunction with other powers that he absorbs throughout the game. One notable change from previous games is that instead of the accessing an aiming system by holding down the L1 button, the player will not need to do so, and will just be able to fire whenever they want, using an on-screen reticle to aim. Parkour returns as a major element, and is executed in the same way; by jumping up walls, Delsin will automatically grab ledges, from which he can hang, pull himself to another ledge, or fire his weapons.
With such a huge open world and graphically intensive game, expect to see one of the best games for early 2014 in this game, i have no doubt this game will be big.
Assassins Creed meets matrix?
Watch Dogs is an open world action-adventure video game in which players control an Irish vigilante named Aiden Pearce (voiced by Noam Jenkins),who can hack into various electronic devices tied to the city’s central operating system (ctOS), allowing various methods for the player to solve numerous objectives.
Examples include hacking into people’s phones to retrieve bank data and steal funds, triggering malfunctions in equipment to distract other characters and hacking into traffic lights to cause collisions. Players can also receive information on civilians via augmented reality feeds, providing the player with information on demographics, health and potential behaviour. Objectives showcased in presentations include finding specific targets to kill, evading the police and following potential victims in order to stop their would-be killers. Combat utilizes a combination of stealth components and parkour, along with the mechanics of a cover-based third-person shooter.
The game features an online multiplayer element. The “multiplayer” experience is a one-on-one interaction between two human characters in which one player seamlessly and secretly joins the single player experience of another player. The first player (which entered the other player’s world) is tasked with finding the second player (which is initially unaware that another human is in their game session – no notification is given to the second player). Once the first player finds the second player the objective is updated. The first player’s new objective involves installing a back door virus into the second player’s smartphone, then hiding while that virus siphons off a portion of the data the second player has collected. This stolen information increases the first player’s power once they return to their own single player session. The second player must stay within a certain radius of the first player for the download to progress. Once the download is initiated, the second player is alerted that they have been hacked and that data is being stolen from their smartphone. Once the second player has been alerted of the intrusion their objective is to locate the first player who is stealing their data, and either kill the first player or cause them to flee to such a distance that the download is halted.
If you are not a fan of people breaking into your game, don’t try dark souls, it’s a very similar concept of breaking into your game, but it is tonnes of fun.
There are alot of other games, but i think these are the BIG games that will make a BIG impact on the ps4, other titles like the division looks also great, there just isn’t that much info out right now to really dig deep on it.
So there you go, a few games coming for 2014, that should keep us all occupied for quite some time.
