As Electronic Entertainment Expo, or E3 just finished last month, we had an influx of information involving a multitude of games for different platforms. Lots of news from the biggest gaming companies was shown, attempting to overwhelm the senses of gamers out there with sheer awesomeness.
But E3 is a mid-year event, and there have already been a ton of games that were released earlier this year. Some of them shook the whole gaming landscape to shreds, setting the bar really, really high.
Right now, let’s look at the three best games that have been released earlier this year, pre-E3, in according to the date they launched. In this article, let’s narrow down the games to just the titles released for the PlayStation 4.
Purrfect character companion!
Capcom’s Monster Hunter: World
- Release date: January 26, 2018
- Game type: Action Role Playing Game
Earlier this year, and by early, we meant that it just went out at the end of January, Monster Hunter: World saw its global release. Players were excited on how Monster Hunter will be finally getting the main console release, something it hasn’t done since the PlayStation 2.
Capcom’s Ryozo Tsujimoto, producer of the Monster Hunter: World, has stated that the game will be releasing more content after the launch of the game. He also added that all new content will be free of charge. That’s right, all the title updates, monster additions, and gameplay changes up till now are free. Some of the downloadable content (DLCs) for the game are available for purchase, sure, but these are purely cosmetic and does not affect the game in any way.
Have I ever told you the definition of insanity?
Ubisoft’s Far Cry 5
- Release date: March 27, 2018
- Game type: Action-Adventure First-person Shooter (FPS)
Ah, Far Cry. Ubisoft’s answer to the wacky-yet-serious genre that a lot of game publishers are holding up.
Streamers on Twitch have been streaming the game for more than 55,000 hours during its first week, and FC5 YouTube videos have a total of 117 million views. These numbers have already topped Ubisofts records left and right.
There’s an amazing infographic on the number of players ambushed by skunks, number of fish caught by players, and number of dynamite sticks thrown (among other wacky info) on Ubisoft’s blog.
The God Killer:
Sony’s God of War
- Release Date: April 20, 2018
- Game type: Third-person Action-Adventure
Dad of Boy, err, God of War is a massive hit. That’s the reality of it. No other words can be said about this game’s sheer beauty in terms of almost everything on it.
The 2018 God of War is a… reboot… of some sorts. It still stars Kratos (Dad), our favorite rage-induced God from Greece, but he seems kind of change, in more ways than one. And yes, we are including that massive hair on his face a part of the big change.
He no longer travels alone, and is instead, accompanied by his son, Atreus (Boy!) as they journey through the lands of Midgard. No more Greek gods on this game, no sir; this game went full Norse.
As the story progresses, the player will unravel mysteries that would soon lead you unveiling the truth about you and your son’s role in that world.
These are all games that made the PlayStation 4’s early 2018 days exciting as hell. E3 is almost here, and we are now facing some of the biggest brands in gaming unveiling their latest works, and update on games (where the hell are you, Final Fantasy 7 Remake?!)
