2017 is here and it seems to be an awesome year for all the gamers out there. There has been a host of cool games which were announced for Xbox One. We have gathered 12 of the best games which are going to be released this year and which can be played on Xbox One that includes some cool sequels along with some originals to get you all excited.
In this article, we will be showcasing best upcoming Xbox One games that we think will make the top of the charts. All these games are selected on the basis of story, graphics, latest features and much more.
1. Resident Evil 7: Biohazard
I know Resident Evil 6 was a major fail when it came out because we all were disappointed by the level of action presented by the game. But Resident Evil promises to return to its full glory of ‘survival horror’ with Resident Evil 7 which is supposed to be a worthy sequel of the previous versions with all the dread and suspense.
You will be the first person player and from what we have witnessed so far, the environment is quite dark and dingy to begin with. Another major benefit of Resident Evil 7 is that it is completely supported on VR devices. We are eagerly awaiting for the spine chilling, first player experience.
Release date: January 24th
2. For Honor
When you are a lover of disorganized combats then you must fall in love with For Honor. For Honor is a multiplayer game which allows you to engage in a melee combat with the likes of knights, samurais and Vikings. The game setting is in a chaotic battlefield, which brings forth even more effect to the fighting.
All the combat skills used in the game are quite exciting and be it the last second block or the hit, all of them have quite some weightage attached. The animations are motion captured and are graceful and fluid in nature. These animations are unique with respect to each of the characters that can be played by you in the game.
