2016 has ended and we are almost a week into 2017; right now there isn’t much to talk about in terms of game releases but another month into this year and we will kick-off a steady flow of titles.
Past year was disappointing in terms of the number of exclusives we saw on PlayStation 4, the only quality release was Uncharted 4. The Last Guardian was a decent game but the series if of acquired taste.
Top 5 PlayStation 4 Exclusives
Gravity Rush 2
The first game was one of the best experiences we had and it helped generate a cult following for this unique title. The sequel, Gravity Rush 2, is releasing later this month on PlayStation 4. It is the very first PlayStation 4 exclusive to release this year and will be available through the PlayStation Store.
Dark Souls mixed with The Witcher, this is Nioh! We are going to visit an ancient Japan infested with demons. Any given enemy is more than capable of slicing your brains out if you are not careful with your actions. Nioh is the second major PlayStation 4 exclusive for 2017 and is releasing in February.
What can we say about Persona games? They are freaky and sometimes it is hard to wrap your head around the things that go on in the game. However, it is an exhilarating experience. Now, we are waiting for the 5th installment of Persona. It is releasing next month.
Horizon: Zero Dawn
Another release set for February 2017; Guerilla Games is releasing Zero Dawn on PlayStation 4 on February 28. You are transported to a post-apocalyptic world where machines have taken over. Lead character, Aloy, is looking for answers about what happened to the world and what is her role. Horizon is probably the most anticipated PlayStation 4 game of 2017.
Ninja Theory has been working on Hellblade for a long time and finally, we will get to play it in 2017. It is aiming to change the way AAA games are developed. It is a low-budget AAA title which looks absolutely beautiful.
