In 2016 and 2017 they have raised the less money than in the previous years, due to a lack of high – profile projects. But, let’s remind ourselves what awesome games this production brought us in the past.

FTL

If you are a fan of Star Track, then you must know that this is the best video game that is ever made, featuring the popular plot. It put the player in control of a small spacecraft, which guides his from planet to planet in order to stop the evil empire.

The Banner Saga

The Nordic mythology and a turn – based system game made The Banner Saga famous. The players love challenging games, and The Banner Saga allowed them in and out of combat challenges and tough decisions they needed to overcome. The original game was very successful that in 2016 it got a sequel called The Banner Saga 2.

Shovel Knight

With a classic design and with a retro – inspired game, the Kickstarter scored a hit with a Shovel Night because the audience loved it. The player controls the main character, a knight, who uses a shovel to dig and bounce his way through the armies of enemies. Even though the game resembles a lot on an NES classic Mega Man, the developers still managed to create something new, which will attract the bigger audience.

HYPER LIGHT DRIFTER

Based on the title, the Hyper Light Drifter didn’t even have to become a big name to score a success.

0

There is no single person in this world who hasn’t heard about the popular game Call of Duty, but after the series of unsuccessful attempts to surpass the original title and to create the better game, the developers have decided to go back to its roots.

In 2016, with the Infinity Warfare, the company tried to create something else, but it didn’t get a good response with the audience. So, Thomas Tipple, an activation chief operating officer, announced that traditional combat would once again take center stage in this game. They have been excited about this new approach, and they think that gaming community will love to play old – new game.

While the Infinity Warfare gameplay was full of innovations, it wasn’t appealing to the fans of Call of Duty, and they didn’t provide positive feedback. This is one of the reasons why they are returning the game to the basic while still trying to keep the balance with the innovations.

The Call of Duty series started in 2003, and it was a big surprise for many players. But, they soon recognized the value and the game kept their interests. Now, more than 15 years later, it is hard to be innovative and to introduce the new elements, without losing the old touch and this is exactly what the developers will try to do with the new sequel.

For people who enjoy the classic combat, fighting Germans in The Second World War and passing through missions, the new back to the basic concept will be real refreshment. One of the main reason why developers are adopting the old layout and combat style is because the Infinite Warfare had more than 3.4 million of dislikes on YouTube. This is a significant figure for the game which used dominate the gaming community. The developers decided to change something and to regain the trust the players once hand in them.

2016 was a tough year for Call of Duty, but it is clear that this franchise won’t give up and it will continue to command the audience. Even with a bad reputation in the last couple of years, the Call of Duty still records a high number of active monthly users, which only proves how popular this game is.

The original Destiny was a very good game, and many players enjoyed it. It involved a lot of gunplay, gear to grind and some really adventurous moments. Let’ be honest, it was far from perfect, and some of the bugs were annoying as the game progressed and now we have a Destiny 2 which freaked out many players. We all feared that we would be experiencing the same situation all over again with the Destiny 2, but luckily, the developers fixed all bugs and everything that we hated about the first game.

The entire game has a lot of cinematic sequences which make players and the world inside of game much more present. When you select a new character, you will be briefed about the things you need to know and what role they play in the game. This is very helpful, especially if you are a beginner. For example, what are your services and when they are needed? In addition to this, you can use a small button that has a purpose of reminding you about the things, in case you forget.

With the new navigation system, you can open a window and see where you are at any moment. Whether you pick a new mission of objectives, you will always know your location and current quest status. Also, you will be able to launch new missions without returning to orbit, unless you want that.

Public events are displayed on a navigation map, and it shows you when the next event will happen. In this case, you can track and complete them, or choose to ignore them.

Loading time has significantly been improved with this game. Not like the former Destiny 1, you could take a coffee with a friend, and when you get back, it will be ready to launch. Although, starting new missions without returning to orbit, will save you a significant portion of time and nerves.

As you can notice, the Destiny 2 has several improvements, which can turn a boring and tedious game into a fun one.

The game is set to be released in 2018, and it can be played on Xbox and PC. Eternal fight between monsters and men is the main topic of this game.

The Future of Assassin’s Creed

0

Nowadays, it’s hard to find a game that has managed to survive the initial success and keep the attention of its fans after several sequels. But, Assassin’s Creed is one of them and with every new series they are becoming even better. Looking from this point, the future of Assassin’s Creed has never been brighter, even if the traditional story becomes less important.

Since the beginning of the franchise, the players had a chance to go through various adventures, stabbing the opponents with Illuminati blades during the Third Crusade, The Renaissance, The Colonial Era and the French Revolution. If you could imagine one stunt that was so difficult to pull out, with Assassin’s Creed everything became possible.

So, what the future of this franchise, when we have seen so many great things from them?

Based on some rumor the new Assassin’s Creed will be named the Origins, and it will come out this year, and it will be a prequel, the actual game might be released between now and March 31, 2018. The storyline was set in Egypt and based on some photoaged that appeared online; the initial scene represents the main characters sailing in a boat on the Nile. But, we can conclude from the previous sequel, when Revelations suggested that Darim, Altair’s son should take one piece of Eden to Alexandria, the ancient capital of Egypt.

For some, the Pyramids might not be the most exciting sight while playing, but in this sequel, we will probably be playing a slave or an ex-slave that resembles Altair a lot. Considering that we are going back to an ancient Egypt, there was no internet back then, and this period is still hazy for historians, we can expect slight alterations, which wasn’t the case with the previous games. In the previous series, Assassin’s Creed games were close to reality.

The internal world of the game will be three times bigger than Black Flag, but we are yet to see how the graphics will behave on PC. If it runs well, we are all for that. It will be open world, and if we are talking about Egypt, we can expect to see open fields of desserts, which won’t give you a lot of places to hide and climb.

This will be a challenge for many players, where they would need to prove their skills and mastery.
