You've checked out the best games of 2014 and lamented the most disappointing. Now it's time to get excited and look toward 2015, a year that's shaping up with a massive release schedule and -- ultimately -- an awesome time to be a gamer.
The makers of Demon's Souls and both Dark Souls games are out to punish
players all over again in a new franchise called Bloodborne that promises to be brutally
unforgiving, but potentially more accessible than its predecessors.
Developer Rocksteady Studios is ready to close the door on its Batman: Arkham series with Arkham Knight. In addition to discovering how this Dark Knight's storyline will shake out, players will finally get to control the Batmobile and a number of new gadgets.
We don't know much about Hellblade, but we're confident that its developer, Ninja Theory, makers of Heavenly Sword, DmC and Enslaved, will give gamers a unique combat-focused action game with striking visuals and style.
We're expecting a lot from the movie of the same name in 2015, but the jury is still out on the game. While it debuted at E3 2013, there's a lot of questions we have about Mad Max, but we're expecting to see it release some time in 2015.
After an impressive reboot of the Tomb Raider franchise, Crystal Dynamics is planning a follow-up that will hit consoles first on Xbox One in 2015. Don't be surprised to see this one slip into 2016, though.
The next highly anticipated installment of the squad-based first-person-shooter looks to breach consoles some time in 2015. What we've seen so far has been very impressive, so we're expecting a lot from the game.
Just like developer Remedy Entertainment has played with in the past, Quantum Break will blur the line between an episodic television series and gameplay, all while giving players the ability to stop and manipulate time.
With a subtitle like "A Thief's End," we have to imagine Uncharted 4 is Drake's last adventure. The good news is we won't need to wait long to play this ultra-anticipated title because Uncharted 4 should hopefully hit the PlayStation 4 next holiday season.
