Shadow of the Colossus
PlatformsPS4 Released 6 February
Widely regarded as one of the finest games ever made, Team Ico’s Shadow of the Colossus had you roaming an ethereal wasteland, taking down the giant colossi in a haunting, thrilling adventure. Its ambition rather outstripped its technical execution in 2005, however, and this comprehensive PS4 remake is looking to address some of its more benign issues. A revamped camera and control system, along with improved visuals, will hopefully improve an already outstanding game without losing any of its soul. “Best upcoming video games of 2018″
Kingdom Come: Deliverance
Platforms PS4, Xbox One, PC Released 13 February
This is a medieval adventure for those that prefer their action-RPGs to be rather more realistic than the usual fantasy fare. What begins as a blacksmith son’s tale of revenge should turn into an epic adventure across 15th century Bohemia, as players rub armoured shoulders with historical figures.
Metal Gear Survive
Platforms PS4, Xbox One, PC Released 22 February
The first Metal Gear since series creator Hideo Kojima’s departure from Konami, Survive is an … interesting spin on the series to say the least. Following the events of The Phantom Pain, part of Big Boss’s Militaires san Frontieres mercenary group are whipped away into an alternate reality teeming with zombies. Cue an open-world, co-operative survival game, a notable if not entirely original departure for Metal Gear that could go either way.
