2.Horizon II:Forbidden West
The firstHorizongame came out in early 2017 and although it received fair recognition,the open-world action game was mostly overshadowed by the release ofThe Legend of Zelda:Breath of the Wild.Playing as Alloy,a skilled survivalist in a fantasy world full of giant machines,the originalHorizonwas immensely enjoyable and one of our favorite games of the year.Luckily,developer Guerrilla Games has been hard at work on a sequel,which looks to blow the first game out of the water.The announcement trailer was packed with detailed and vibrant scenery,explosive action,and plenty of signature archery combat.We can’t wait to return to Alloy’s world and venture into the unknown lands of the West when this stunning sequel launches exclusively on the PlayStation 5 sometime in 2021.
TheHalofranchise is as synonymous with Xbox asSuper Mariois with Nintendo.The sci-fi first-person shooter was a system-seller when it was released on the original Xbox,with countless players diving deep into its world of interplanetary warfare.Each Xbox console has seen a handful ofHaloreleases,and with a few exceptions,every single one has been of irrefutable quality.There’s so much mystery surroundingHalo Infinite,it’s hard not to speculate.As more and more titles move towards a “games as a service” formula,willHalofollow suit?There’s no doubt thatHalo Infinitewill be chock-full of intense FPS action,gorgeous graphics,and addictive multiplayer.Beyond that,we’re not totally sure what to expect.Microsoft will undoubtedly reveal more about the game during their “Xbox Games Showcase” presentation,so look out for that.Regardless,we can’t wait to hop back into the boots of Master Chief and blast through some aliens whenHalo Infinitereleases alongside the Xbox Series X this holiday.
