10 Games to Get Hyped For in 2015

Top games that will be launched in 2015.

1. Bloodborne

This game is being directed by Hidetaka Miyazaki, the man responsible for directing Demon's Souls and Dark Souls. Gauging by recent gameplay footage, Bloodborne will not be a disappointment. It looks as though Miyazaki is sticking with the difficult gameplay and fantastic multiplayer elements he's known for.

Release Date:  March 27, 2015 

Platform:  PS4

2. Evolve

This game is being developed by the creators that gave us Left 4 Dead. It boasts 4v1 matching. Four hunters must track down one player who plays as a variety of monsters. The most-seen monster at this point is the Goliath. For the most part, betas for the game have been open, allowing players to get a taste of the game.

Release Date: February 10, 2015

Platforms: Xbox One, PS4, PC

3. Halo 5: Guardians 

This is 343 Industries' second attempt at a Halo game. There have been recent controversies over the changes they have made in multiplayer. However, keep in mind this is a Halo game, and they have never been disappointing. This is truly the first next-gen Halo, and most of us are expecting it to be great.

Release Date:  Q3 2015

Platforms:  Xbox One

4. The Legend of Zelda Wii U 

The hype about Zelda is gaining steam as we find out more about the game. The last time we saw a major gameplay update was at the Video Game Awards. We had a chance to see the open-world game mechanics put to work. This game alone makes the Wii U worth having.

Release Date:  TBD 2015

Platform:  Wii U

5. Metal Gear Solid 5: Phantom Pain 

This game looks amazing. We all had a chance to get a small preview of things to come by playing Metal Gear Solid V:  Ground Zero. Phantom Pain is going to be Hideo Kojima's biggest open-world game to date. I can't wait to see what Kojima can do with the current generation console capabilities. Gauging by Metal Gear Solid 4 graphics on the PS3, Phantom Pain will be nothing shy of gorgeous.

Release Date:  June 22, 2015 (speculated) 

Platforms:  PC, Xbox 360, PS3, Xbox One, PS4

6. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt 

This game has had a lot of hype since its announcement. This game looks beautiful in every way. The Witcher 2 was not disappointing and exceeded any expectations I had for it. The depth of this RPG is doubtlessly going suck the players into the world.

Release Date:  May 19, 2015

Platforms:  Xbox One, PS4, PC

7. Uncharted 4: A Thief's End 

This is Naughty Dog's fourth installment of the praised Uncharted series. This series has grown to be a staple in the PlayStation library. Drake looks marvelous in this installment. Uncharted 4 will be the first attempt on the current gen console and is sure to blow away expectations.

Release Date:  2015

Platform:  PlayStation 4

8. Scalebound 

This title is being developed by Platinum Games. This is the same studio that brought us Bayonetta, Devil May Cry, and The Wonderful 101 on the Wii U. With such amazing games under the studio's belt and a concept as beautiful as this, Scalebound is sure to be an impressive launch. 

Release Date: 2015

Platforms:  Xbox One

9. Mortal Kombat X 

This long-anticipated game is gaining steam as we find out more and more confirmed characters. It's hard to imagine the fighting genre without the Mortal Kombat series. Mortal Kombat has come a long way since the launch of the first game. It is based more on strategy and violence, rather than just straight violence. Ed Boon has done a great job revamping the series with the previous installment and I can't wait to see what he has in store for Mortal Kombat X.

Release Date:  April 14, 2015

Platforms:  Xbox 360, PS3, Xbox One, PS4, PC

10. Dying Light 

This game, which is being developed by Techland, has been gaining a lot of attention. They recently announced that they were working with the creator of parkour to give more accurate movements to players and AI. Techland had also announced a while back that due to the detailed nature of the game, they had to cut development on last generation consoles, click here for details.
