Dragon Age: Inquisition

Explore a vast, fantasy world at the brink of catastrophe in Dragon Age: Inquisition, a next-generation action RPG, where your choices shape and drive the experience. In this upcoming video game from BioWare, makers of Mass Effect 3 and Dragon Age: Origins, you’ll make your mark in an expansive, story-driven open world filled with complex characters, challenging combat and difficult decisions.

A cataclysmic event has plunged the land of Thedas into turmoil. Dragons now darken the sky, casting a shadow of terror over a once-peaceful kingdom. Mages have broken into an all-out war against the oppressive Templars. Nations rise against one another. It falls to you to restore order as you lead the Inquisition and hunt down the agents of chaos - your choices will forever change the Dragon Age.

This new offering from BioWare will prove to be the best one yet.  A next-gen RPG running off the Frostbite 3 engine, will bring to life the surrounding and the world of Dragon Age: Inquisition.  Character creation has been improved and you will have an endless range of options to customize your character and chose its path in game.  You moral decisions will affect how the game and story plays out and will have repercussions in the end.  

The art and sneak peeks at the game have definitely added to this game being on my top 10 most anticipated games.  The fact alone that I remember logging over 90 hours in Dragon Age: Origins, just adds to the anticipation and the countless hours that will be put into this game.  Check out the videos to learn more about the game which is slated to be released Q3 2014.

Both videos give you an glimpse at game play and the class make up of the game.  During the team death match video below, its even compared to Left4Dead multiplayer, which isn't bad if you enjoyed playing L4D.  If you have not done so already, I would recommend signing up for the closed or open beta, in order for you to have a chance to check it out for free!  Or if you are interested in more information, head on over their their website Here:

Dying Light - 12-Minute Gameplay Walkthrough

Dying Light is a first person action survival game set to release in March 2014. Taking place 2 months after an outbreak. An open world game, lets you roam seamlessly around the world with its free running movement. The objective of the walkthrough is for the player to reach 1 off 2 air drops that hold medical supplies. The time frame of the walk though has been accelerated to show the day time and night time game play.

The day time game play is similar to that of any current zombie game, where you run around and smash their heads in. Though some situations are much harder than others and the free running skills of the game are ideal to escape situations where fighting is not an option.

The night time game play is where it is different. The undead become the hunter, and have turned to "something much more sinister." The player uses "night sense" to avoid the undead, move through the world, and survive.

There some mechanics that are reminiscent of other games. Such as Mirrors Edge free running, Dead Rising's weapon creation, and Dead island game play. Overall the night time game is what sets it apart and will have to wait until more information is released. Have a look at the 12 minute pre alpha game play walkthrough to experience the full effect in full screen mode. Check out their site for updates: http://dyinglightgame.com/site

Cyberpunk 2077

From the creators of The Witcher 1, 2, and 3, comes CyberPunk 2077. Though the trailer is only a couple of minutes long, it definitely action packed, is really interesting concept and leaves you wanting to know more about the game. The trailer song, just adds to the awe of the trailer. As one the top most anticipated games on my list, it promises to impress, especially with their track record on the successful Witcher franchise. There is a lot of speculation on whether it will be first person or third person shooter with RPG elements.

This is a great example of developer not trying to rush and get a game out on the shelves from the anticipated release date at the end of the trailer: "Coming: When its Ready" To check out their site and get more information check here: http://cyberpunk.net/
