Most anticipated releases: January to March

If 2014 was a good year for gaming, then 2015 is set to be even better. There’s so many great games just around the corner – and the year has only just begun!

Here’s a quick rundown of the games we’re most looking forward to seeing in the next couple of months..

 

Saints Row IV Re-Elected & Gat Out Of Hell – Whilst technically not a brand new release, since we enjoyed the first iteration on last gen, we’re excited to relive the madness that Saints Row never fails to offer. The expansion promises to offer a load of new content though, so we’re pretty excited.

Release date: 23 January 2015, Xbox One/PS4


615BW5z+eDL._SL1500_Grim Fandango – Again, not a new game, but admittedly the one I’m most looking forward to – the announcement of its re-release was the highlight of E3 2014 for me! I played back back in 1998 when it first came out, on my parents’ “top of the range” PC with its massive 6gb hard drive and impressive 32mb of RAM. Ah, those were the days… Anyway. Grim Fandango was amazing then, and I expect nothing less now.

Release date: 30 January 2015, PS4/Vita (download only)


Dying Light – Who doesn’t love a good zombie scare at the moment? Dying Light looks to be a cross between Mirrors Edge and Dead Island… which sounds like a winning combination if you ask me. And with the last-generation versions of the game cancelled, it looks as though it should have some stellar graphics to boot too.

Release date: 30 January 2015, Xbox One/PS4/PC


The Order 1886 – Sorry Xbox peeps, The Order is a Sony exclusive, and if you don’t mind me saying, it looks bloody awesome. The previews we’ve seen so far have shown off some pretty swanky looking graphics and the Victorian England setting has us sold already.

Release date: 20 February 2015, PS4


 

Project Cars – Finally! Another racing game for this gen. The ones we’ve had so far have been good, but they’ve been very few and far between, so it’s high time there was something new. Project Cars has been developed by a British company, Slightly Mad, who made Need for Speed Shift and Shift 2, so we’re intrigued to see what they’re going to offer in their first game of this gen.

Release date: 20 March 2015, Xbox One/PS4/PC/WiiU


Bloodborne – I was trying hard not to be Playstation-biased, honest, but it’s hard not to be when there’s yet another PS4-exclusive coming out this season. Bloodborne is essentially the next generation of Demon Souls… which means I probably won’t be playing very much of it because it’ll be too hard for me – I’m not going to lie! Still, it’s set to be an impressive release.

Release date: 27 March 2015, PS4
