First up in Battlefield 1. Developed by DICE and published by EA, this first-person shooter is set during World War I, and gives players the tools-of-the-time to wage war against one another. After the biggest beta in EA history, with over 13.2 million players taking part, it can’t just be us here at PlayStation LifeStyle who are excited. Battlefield 1 releases on October 21st.
Next, we have a double whammy of Call of Duty action. We’ll admit that it’s Modern Warfare Remastered that we’re most excited to play. However, to actually get access to the remaster, you have to pick up an Infinite Warfare. Fortunately, Infinite Warfare is looking better with each new trailer that gets released, so we’re not too bitter. Both games release on November 4th, however on PS4 it’s possible to get 30 days early access to the Modern Warfare Remaster campaign by pre-ordering.
On November 11th, the Arkane Studios developed Dishonored 2 will launch. Set fifteen years after the first game, players can choose to play as either Emily or Corvo as they attempt to reclaim the Empire’s throne. We’re excited to continue the story of these characters, and see what improvements have been made to the game’s stealth, and should we get caught, brutal combat systems.
The first Final Fantasy game on our list today is Final Fantasy XV. Playing as main protagonist Noctis, players must explore the world of Eos, on a journey to retrieve a powerful stolen crystal. Square Enix claims that this Final Fantasy will be a major departure from previous games, providing a darker atmosphere that focuses on more realistic environments and human characters. We can’t wait to get stuck in and immerse ourselves in a brand new world when the game releases on November 29th.
Hangar 13 is the developer at the helm of delivering the next Mafia installment. Mafia III is set in 1968, in the fictional city of New Bordeaux. Put into the shoes of Lincoln Clay, players can wander the open world. The end goal for Clay, and therefore players, is to enact revenge against the Italian mob. We’ll be earning our vengeance at launch on October 7th.
Almost a year after the Xbox release, PlayStation owners are finally going to get their hands on Rise of the Tomb Raider, when it launches on October 11th. Gameplay-wise, expect more of what made the 2013 reboot so great, along with improvements in the stealth department. No competitive multiplayer this time around, but there are Challenge Modes with specific mission requirements that we just know we’ll become obsessed with.
We feel a little anxious adding this title to our list, for fear that it will get delayed yet again, but here it is anyway. The Last Guardian, this mythical game that many thought would never see the light of day, will supposedly launch on December 6th. What we’ve seen from gameplay so far is the completion of simple puzzles in order for both the young boy and his giant griffin friend to progress. Hopefully their relationship is an interesting one, as this game really needs to do a lot to live up to the monumental hype.
Though Xbox exclusivity kept PlayStation fans from enjoying the first Titanfall, the sequel will be coming to PlayStation 4. Titanfall 2 brings Pilots and Titans together once again, as the Frontier Militia faces off against the Interstellar Manufacturing Corporation. This time around there’s a single-player campaign, a heavily requested component. Titans will start falling when the game releases on October 28th.
The change of style and location has us excited about Watch Dogs 2. While the first game oozed gray and had little personality, the sequel looks vibrant and fun. Set in San Francisco, players will use their hacking know-how to take down an advanced surveillance system and the evil corporation behind it all. Watch Dogs 2 launches on November 15th.
Just in case one Final Fantasy wasn’t enough, Square Enix is also launching World of Final Fantasy, which is coming to both PS4 and PlayStation Vita on October 25th. The world of Grymoire is a land populated by classic Final Fantasy characters and monsters, and you must explore it to recover lost memories. Yes, it looks cute as hell, but whatever, we’re still damn excited for it.
