Top 5 Anticipated PS4 Games for 2016
on 19 January 2016
The consensus among gamers and critics is that 2015 wasn't the best year for Sony's flagship console. But that's set to change in a big way when these eagerly-awaited titles make their PlayStation 4 debut in 2016, including the strong exclusives the console has been lacking up to now.
If you haven't taken the plunge into the world of the PS4 yet, there's never been a better time. If you're already a devotee, it's time to free up some valuable space on your hard drive.
5. The Last Guardian
Years in development, this ambitious fantasy title was originally intended to debut on the PS3 before ongoing issues delayed it to the new generation. It remains to be seen whether the game will live up to the considerable hype, but based on previews and the impressive track record of Sony's Japan Studio, The Last Guardian is a safe bet for one of the year's best sellers.
4. Dark Souls 3
Confirmed to be the final chapter in the saga, Dark Souls 3 makes full advantage of the PS4's advanced capabilities to deliver the best looking and most expansive game in the acclaimed series, featuring six-player online multiplayer. Director Hidetaka Miyazaki returns to the series fresh from his stint on Bloodborne, and fans can reportedly look forward to more of the gruelling gaming they've come to expect on its launch in April.
3. Tom Clancy's The Division
Explore post-apocalyptic New York City in exquisite detail in this open-world shooter, where it's every player for himself even in co-op mode. With a compelling plot and crazy powerful weapons, this looks set to be the one MMO shooter capable of breaking Destiny's dominance in the field, available from March.
2. Street Fighter 5
Whether you've been a fan since the original '80s arcade game or you've been waiting six years for the follow-up to Street Fighter 4, the latest entry in the noble line won't disappoint. This new game has done away with the unpopular attack system from its predecessor, replacing it with one designed to be accessible for newcomers while still offering the strategic complexity that hardcore players thirst for. Reunite with Ryu, Ken and Chun Li and meet some new faces when Street Fighter 5 lands in March.
1. Uncharted 4: A Thief's End
Nathan Drake's final adventure could be the stand-out PS4 exclusive we've been waiting for. With bustling street scenes, a destructible environment, addictive missions, gorgeous graphics and multiplayer, Uncharted 4 is bound to shake up the console market and convert more devotees to the Sony side when it finally arrives in April.
