Future Tech: 

10 Games We Can’t Wait To Play in 2015


Quantum Break, due summer 2015

With the first year of next-generation gaming done and dusted, you might think the buzz around the latest consoles from Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo has all but died down, right? Think again.

Developers launched some big titles in 2014, but so far it’s been more about testing the capabilities of the new machines and seeing what they can do. Limits are being stretched and boundaries pushed, as games become bigger, better and more beautiful than ever before. In 2015, though, the time for playing around is over, and gaming is ready to get serious and realise its potential. Here’s what to look out for over the next 12 months.

10. Evolve

Platforms: XBox One, Playstation 4

Expected: February 10

They say: “The next generation of multiplayer shooters where four Hunters face off against a single, player-controlled Monster in adrenaline-pumping 4v1 matches.

We say: From Turtle Rock Studios, creators of Left 4 Dead, comes this unique spin on multiplayer gaming in which you must choose between the hunter and the hunted. If it’s anything like the trailer, it could be a blast.

9. No Man’s Sky

Platforms: Playstation 4, PC

Expected: TBC

They say: “A science-fiction game set in an infinite procedural generated galaxy

We Say: This indie game from British studio Hello Games had journalists raving at last summer’s E3. The infinitely generating galaxy means the game world is absolutely massive, but let’s hope the gameplay matches up so it lives up to the hype.

8. Mortal Kombat X

Platforms: PC, Playstation 3, Playstaion 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One

Expected: April 14

They say: “The most brutal Kombat experience ever

We Say: You should know the deal now, but expect to developers NetherRealm to come up with something extra special (and extra bloody) for the tenth instalment in this classic franchise.

7. The Order: 1886

Platforms: Playstation 4

Expected: February 20

They say: “Discover a unique version of Victorian-Era London where technology and the supernatural collide

We Say: A genuinely nightmarish game concept which puts you face-to-face with horrific half-man, half-monster hybrids. We’re sold.

6. Inside

Platforms: PC, Playstation 3, Playstaion 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One

Expected: Early 2015

They say: Errr, nothing just yet.

We Say: While the game’s developers PlayDead have been tight-lipped with details so far, the trailer is gorgeous and their last game, Limbo, was one of the best of recent years. If it’s anything like that, expect eerie, sinister gameplay that’ll haunt your sleep.

5. Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain

Platforms: PC, Playstation 3, Playstaion 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One

Expected: TBC

They say: “Combining open-world action with a new breed of stealth, take on the rough terrain of Afghanistan and tactical espionage with Solid Snake and a whole host of new characters.

We Say: Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes may have been a bit underwhelming given the pedigree of the MGS series, but it’s never wise to bet against Solid Snake. A new world of tactical espionage awaits.

4. The Legend of Zelda

Platforms: Wii U

Expected: TBC

They say: “The world will meet a terrible fate

We Say: It’s still early days for this one, but as Nintendo explained at E3 it’s set to be the most expansive Zelda game yet. Perhaps the greatest hope for the struggling Wii U console.

3. Halo 5: Guardians

Platforms: Xbox One

Expected: Fall 2015

They say: Peace is shattered when colony worlds are unexpectedly attacked. But when humanity’s greatest hero goes missing, a new Spartan is tasked with hunting the Master Chief and solving a mystery that threatens the entire galaxy.

We Say: It’s next-generation Halo. Need we really say more?

2. Quantum Break

Platforms: Xbox One

Expected: Summer 2015

They say: “Quantum Break blurs the line between television and gameplay, integrating the two into one seamless, uniquely immersive experience.

We Say: Part Xbox game, part television series – we can’t quite imagine how this one is going to work out, but it gets an A for ambition. If the suitably cinematic trailer isn’t enough to whet your appetite, then we don’t know what will.

1. Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End

Platforms: Playstation 4

Expected: October

They say: “Several years after his last adventure, retired fortune hunter, Nathan Drake, is forced back into the world of thieves. With the stakes much more personal, Drake embarks on a globe-trotting journey in pursuit of a historical conspiracy behind a fabled pirate treasure.

We Say: A Thief’s End is being billed as possibly the final chapter Uncharted franchise. After the best-in-series Uncharted 2 and it’s fine follow-up, here’s hoping it goes out with a bang.
