Overwatch

If Team Fortress 2 and Borderlands had a child it would most probably be Overwatch. The game launched in May, which means that it is still technically new. Overwatch is a lot of fun, with its diverse character roster and unique gameplay for each character. If you like online team-based multiplayer shooters, then you should definitely give this game a shot.

Platforms: PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC
Release date: May 24 2016

Doom

Yes, Doom launched back in May, but two months is enough to call it new. The game is perfect for those who love FPS games, and we do recommend it if you haven’t played it yet. It’s pure old school shooting, with a variety of guns at your disposal. Did we mention there are challenges to keep you hooked and an online multiplayer mode too?

Platforms: PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC
Release date: May 13 2016

No Man’s Sky

We (especially me) can’t believe that No Man’s Sky is just around the corner. The game has been delayed and considering how much it offers to a gamer, we were patiently waiting. For the uninitiated, No Man’s Sky is a first person open world game where you can explore the galaxy, reach random planets and quite literally do whatever you want. And this time, there are way too many things to explore!

Platforms: PlayStation 4, PC
Release date: August 9 2016

Dishonored 2

A sequel to one of the most popular games of 2012, Dishonored will hit the PC and consoles towards the end of 2016. This time players will have the option to control the protagonist from the first game, Corvo Attano, or a new playable character, Emily. Emily will apparently showcase a variety of new powers and movies. The E3 2016 demo of Dishonored 2 had us floored and we (again, especially me) can’t wait to get our hands on this game.

Release date: November 11 2016

Mafia 3

If there is one franchise that can give GTA a run for its money, it’s Mafia. The story driven nature of this open world game is very reminiscent of the Godfather movies, and the reason we are excited to play it.

Platforms: PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, Mac OS
Release date: October 7 2016

Watch Dogs 2

Watch Dogs 1 was quite disappointing, but the concept was great. The developers are adding diversity to the gameplay this time, seemingly learning from their mistakes. Watch Dogs 2 is set in a fictionalised version of San Francisco. If the E3 2016 demo is anything to go by, the game looks absolutely stunning.

Platforms: PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC
Release date: November 15 2016

Gears of War 4

Gears of War 4 will be the first Gears game to come out of The Coalition, development studio. The E3 demo wasn’t the very intriguing, but we think the developers have a few tricks up their sleeves, which will be revealed closer to the launch of the game. 

Platforms: Xbox One, PC
Release date: October 11 2016

Call of Duty Infinite warfare

Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare breaches the final frontier, space. The E3 2016 demo, showcased some really impressive gameplay mechanics. It is still a first person shooter at its core, but an exploding moon adds an interesting twist to the game.

Titanfall 2

A sequel to one of the best Xbox One launch titles, Titanfall 2 aims to cement the relationship between man and machine.

Honestly, we are looking forward to the new multiplayer modes that have been announced.
