All The Big Games Coming Out This Summer

All The Big Games Coming Out This Summer

Ahh, summer. A time for hitting up the beach, playing backyard cricket, sausage sandwiches … and then realising how bloody hot everything is, and going inside to chill with a fan and a console/PC.

Once the stickier, uncomfortable part of summer hits, you’ll need something to do. Fortunately, there’s plenty of games coming out over the season.

So that’s the list of everything so far, although there’ll undoubtedly be a few indie titles that crop up over the period that catch our attention. See anything that catches your eye? I wouldn’t mind giving Ghost Recon Wildlands a go with my partner or a friend, and I can imagine Resident Evil 7 capturing a lot of people’s attention.


  • Wow a whole lot of nothing for me in that list. And considering I have PS4 and Xbone to choose from.

  • re7 (in vr) halo, horizon zero dawn, wildlands and star trei bridge crew, going to an awesome start to the year

  • Super pumped for Horizon Zero Dawn, particularly as I just bought a PS4 Pro. Didn’t intend to, as I thought the upgrade wasn’t worth it, but my OG Day 1 PS4 broke, so hey.

    I’m also cautiously looking forward to Wildlands, but will definitely be holding off until reviews are out.

  • South Park is due to launch somewhere in this period. Thats pretty much all for me. Maybe For Honour.

  • Wildlands is about it on that list (already have Yoshi on Wii U). And if i ever get a PS4 then Horizon (if it was coop id buy it in a heartbeat).

  • Kingdom Hearts, Resident Evil and Yakuza on the same day is going to kill me.

    in fact, January is crazy as i’ve also got Hatsune Miku, Gravity Rush and Digimon World too.

    Then February has Berserk and Nioh,

    March has Nier Automata as well, it’s going to be a big Summer for me.

  • Great to see Japan smashing the first 3 months of 2017 with great sounding games, especially in the first 6 weeks. It’ll be Horizon, NieR (that demo is so good, go get it!!) and Switch if Zelda drops with it for me 🙂
