Best Video Game Releases of 2018

With so many great releases this year, choosing the best was not an easy task, but here is the list of our favourites.

 

Laser League

Platforms: PC, PS4, Xbox One
Developer: roll7

If you enjoy sports games you will love this highly competitive, arcade-inspired multiplayer. The game will have your team battling out in a neon-lit arena, obliterating your opponents with moving lasers, as you try to evade being wiped on touch. Similar to sports betting, the gameplay looks simple on the surface, but it allows for a variety of tactics, as each player can choose one of six classes with a unique set of skills and bonuses: Blade, Smash, Snipe, Ghost, Thief, and Shock. The game can be played in teams of four in local mode or in teams of three in online mode. We can only hope that gambling on Laser League will soon be available as it promises almost as much fun as this MoPlay welcome bonus.

God of War

Platforms: PS4
Developer: Sony Santa Monica

Set in the world of Norse mythology, the story follows the vengeful demigod Kratos as he tries to redeem himself and teach his son Atreus to survive. Gameplay brings you closer to the action than ever before, as you smack trolls and ogres with your magic axe. The landscape of the lands of Midgard is huge and full of wonders, as the game adds an exploration element in addition to the thrilling combat. The story is capturing, mature and deeply personal, making us see the human side of the characters. This is one of the defining games of the current generation.

Forgotton Anne

Platforms: PC, PS4, Xbox One
Developer: Throughline Games

This beautiful 2D hand-drawn anime adventure, reminiscent of Studio Ghibli movies, will take you to the Forgotten Lands, where lost and forgotten household objects take on a life of their own. As Anne, an Enforcer of the realm, you have the power to banish the ‘Forgotlings’ who step out of line. Following the dark and compelling narrative, the game will have you solve puzzles as you try to bring Anne home to the human world, often facing you with difficult moral choices that will affect the course of the story.
