Most Anticipated Games of 2013

By   /   3 years ago

We saw some big releases last year, such as Black Ops II, Halo 4, FarCry 3, Hitman: Absolution, Mass Effect 3, Boderlands 2, Diablo 3 and many more.

Not only, that, we were also introduced to some brilliant and innovative titles, of which Dishonored and Journey sit on the apex. In addition to these gem games, we even got to see the release of the Wii U.

2012 definitely had its highlights, but it has passed now, and yet we enter 2013, which looks to be even more promising with some heavy titles coming out.

Here are the titles we expect will cause the most stir in the gaming industry – whether it’s a good stir or a bad stir is up to you to decide:

DmC: Devil May Cry
The new installment in the DmC series has sparked a lot of interest. While there were some initial reservations about Dante’s new look, the well-executed trailer videos and simply the fact that it is a new Devil May Cry overshadows whatever complaints there could be.

This time around the game has more story driven content, and brings a new flavor to the series while maintaining the old gameplay and the fluid hack and slash fighting. Being the only game in the list to have been released, and quite clearly its taken everyone by surprise – in both ways that is.

Dead Space 3
Being the third title in the Dead Space series is definitely enough to make it to this list. The first title in the series did not take long to garner universal critical acclaim and a large fan following. It brought its own brand of horror integrated into every element of the game.

It was a revolution in the genre and still plays like no other because of its unique gameplay and creative design. EA has even assured fans that this title won’t tone down any elements of the previous games in the series.

Crysis 3
Crytek has proven their worth time and time again. First, it was with Far Cry, the game that revolutionized first-person shooters with its beautiful open world. Then Crysis, which also revolutionized the genre with gorgeous graphics and a thrilling gameplay.

The nano suit was a brilliantly fun element and brought a depth to the game which carried on in the rest of the series. Crytek once again promises that in Crysis 3, it’ll bring forth the best visuals to date, edging ahead of even the mighty Frostbite 2.0 that powers games like Battlefield 3.

Needless to say, the new installment will be highly anticipated by every fan of first-person shooters and gamers in general.

Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance
This Metal Gear spinoff introduces a new twist to the Metal Gear gameplay as a new developer step in, not to mention the new (but not-so-new) playable character, Raiden. Raiden replaces the more stealth based focus of the previous games with swordplay, and a more action orientated approach.

Regardless of whatever reaction this new style gets from fans, the title belongs on every most anticipated games list.

Tomb Raider
Tomb Raider has come a long way since it first made an impact all in all of gaming as it introduced the female mascot of video games, Lara Croft. This reboot brings a new take on the franchise as it explores the origins of gaming’s most popular heroine.

The game will have a new focus on survival and using the open world environment to overcome obstacles. The puzzles will involve making equipment, using wind, fire and natural elements and much more. Lara looks more badass than ever as she evolves from a helpless girl to a survivor hunting down her foes.
