Upcoming PS4 Games 2017

The best upcoming PS4 Games and release dates

Now that E3 has come and gone, we have plenty of upcoming PS4 games to get incredibly excited about.

Detroit: Become Human is the latest project from Quantic Dream, taking inspiration from the likes of Blade Runner to form its own interactive drama filled with humanoid robots and scary moral dilemmas. We’ve also got Days Gone and The Last of Us Part 2 to look forward to from Sony’s first-party studios.

Kojima Productions is working on Death Stranding, a bizarre-looking title starring The Walking Dead’s Norman Reedus and Hannibal’s Mads Mikkelsen.

We now have a release date for Call of Duty: WW2, which is hugely exciting as Activision returns the series to its roots. Plus fight fans are treated to a return of the crossover series Marvel vs Capcom Infinite.

Finally, let’s not forget the likes of Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony rounding off PS4’s 2017 with some obscure Japanese delights.

Call of Duty: WW2

1 of 22

Developer: Activision/Sledgehammer
Release Date: November 3, 2017

Call of Duty is returning back to its roots with Call of Duty: WWII. It’s a very exciting time and after the simply superb Battlefield 1 showed how returning to historic conflicts can create great games, we’re very hopeful Activision can pull the same trick in World War Two.

Pre-order Call of Duty: WWII from Amazon

Hopefully this will see a strong return to form for the series after the disappointing Infinite Warfare, and we at Trusted cannot wait to play it.

Days Gone

2 of 22

Developer: Sony Bend

While you can throw a stone at a store shelf and probably hit a zombie survival game, Sony Bend is looking to do things a little differently by offering a third person action-shooter which follows a rebellious biker who collects bounties in the apocalypse.

After closing out Sony’s press conference at last year’s E3, players have become increasingly excited by what’s to come from the game, especially after seeing the sheer amount of undead which can swarm the screen at any one time.

There’s still no firm release date on this one yet, but hopefully we see it before 2017 comes to a close.

Release Date: TBC

Developer: Bungie

While your characters and equipment won’t carry over from the previous iteration, there will still be plenty of awesome new stuff to experience, including an all new solo campaign, raids, strikes and more. No matter how you slice it, Destiny 2 is bound to offer something special later this year.

Red Dead Redemption 2

4 of 22

Developer: Rockstar Games
Release Date: Spring 2018

Red Dead Redemption 2 stands tall as one of 2018’s most anticipated titles. Rockstar has done a great job of building hype for the game, and its latest trailer has certainly got us excited to explore the Old West once again.

Related: GTA 6 news and rumours

It’s a cross-platform title, but we’re pretty sure it’ll be one of the biggest sellers on every console it comes to, if the GTA V sales figures are anything to go by.

Death Stranding

5 of 22

Developer: Kojima Productions

Release Date: TBC

Hideo Kojima’s first new IP since Metal Gear Solid in 1998, Death Stranding looks to be a strange, unsettling and innovative experience from the iconic developer.

Related: Xbox Scorpio vs PS4 Pro

Starring The Walking Dead’s Norman Reedus, the game will draw upon the themes of climate change and parenthood, all of which are drenched in poignant symbolism.

Pre-order at Amazon.co.uk from £49.99 | Amazon.com from $59

Little is known about Death Stranding’s gameplay thus far, but we do know it will be a blend of unique action and survival horror.

Gran Turismo Sport

6 of 22

Developer: Polyphony Digital
Platform: PS4

Sony’s iconic racing franchise is finally coming to PS4, in the form a standalone entry unique from the numbered series.

Not intended as a fully-featured release, Gran Turismo Sport will feature three different modes: Campaign, Sport and Arcade

God of War

7 of 22

Developer: Santa Monica  

Platform: PS4 

This reboot of the beloved action franchise plans to reinvent its brutal mechanics with a deeper focus on storytelling and characterisation. 

Kratos is back and more responsible than ever as he now has a son he must teach, care for and protect in a world ripe with dangerous creatures. 

Pre-order at Amazon.co.uk from £49.99 | Amazon.com from $59.99

Don’t worry though, the grotesque action is here to stay, except this time it appears to be far more heavy and deliberate, much like Dark Souls. 

This is an exciting direction for a franchise many had grown tired of in recent years, and we can’t wait to play this reimagining of God of War.

Dreams

8 of 22

Developer: Media Molecule
Platform: PS4

Media Molecule is well-known for its creativity, and allowing its players to become creators within them. Just look at all three LittleBigPlanet and the stunning pair of Tearaway games.

But, Dreams takes the whole creativity idea to a whole new level.

It’s up to you to create the entire game from scratch, using a little imp that acts as your cursor and your building tool.

Dreams is a little complicated to explain, but if you’re creative and excelled in the Create Mode of LittleBigPlanet, then this is your ultimate game.

Pre-order at Amazon.co.uk from £44

Expected release date: TBC 2017

Detroit: Become Human

9 of 22

Developer: Quantic Dream

Platform: PS4

This neo-noir thriller by the minds behind Heavy Rain and Beyond: Two Souls sets out to ask an important question – can androids and humans co-exist in the same society?

It’s a query that has dominated science fiction for decades, but developer Quantic Dream plans to put its own unique twist on the archaic genre trope.

Played from the perspective of multiple characters you will be forced to make some harrowing decisions as you explore a futuristic depiction of Detroit as both android and human.

Expected release date: TBA

Hellblade

10 of 22

Developer: Ninja Theory
Platform: PS4 and PC

You might remember Hellblade from when it was announced at GamesCom 2014, but since then it’s one of those games that’s been bubbling away quietly underneath.

Despite that, it’s still one to watch out for. Hellblade is a rather unique game that’s tackling one of life’s huge issues that is often not well dealt with – mental illness.

Ninja Theory is going to treat the subject with respect, incorporating elements of depression, schizophrenia and other prominent illness into its main character; a girl by the name of Senua, a Celtic warrior.

This should be a powerful and educational game, with a strong protagonist and interesting story.

Expected release date: TBC 2017

Project Cars 2

11 of 22

Developer: Slightly Mad Studios
Release Date: September 22, 2017

Following on from its hugely-successful predecessor, Project Cars 2 promises to double down on its realism with one of the most detailed racing simulators on the market.

Games Editor Brett Phipps got the chance to play it recently and described it as the best-looking racing game he’s ever played. 2017 could be one of the very best years for race fans with Project Cars 2, GT Sport and the rumoured Forza Motorsport 7 on the horizon.

With 14 confirmed fighters thus far and plenty more to come, this could be the most exciting fighter of 2017. But we’re pretty sure Injustice 2 will have something to say about that.

13 of 22

Developer: Wild Sheep Studios
Platform: PS4

In WiLD, you play as a Shaman, free to explore the huge world and carve your own path. Every animal that you see can be tamed, learned from and even possessed – well, Shamans are magical after all.

16 of 22

Who wouldn’t want a remaster of one of the most iconic games ever made? Sony’s surprise announcement at E3 this year was Shadow of the Colossus rebuilt for PS4, and we absolutely can’t wait for this one.

Shenmue 3 carries with it an enormous weight of expectation, and the longer it takes to launch the more momentum its hype train builds.

After its hugely successful Kickstarter campaign, fans around the world are eagerly awaiting the game’s launch to see how Ryo Hazuki’s tale of redemption concludes.

Far Cry 5

20 of 22

Release Date: February 27, 2018

The latest entry in Ubisoft’s popular shooter franchise takes us to Hope County, Montana. This fictional province is packed with the usual array of dangerous mercenaries and hostile extremists wanting nothing but to hunt the player down with an array of lethal weapons.

Ubisoft is yet to reveal any specifics on Far Cry 5’s story, characters and gameplay, although we’re hoping it expands upon the existing formula while introducing some new and exciting additions. No dinosaurs, but it’ll do.

Yakuza Kiwami

21 of 22

Developer: SEGA
Release Date: August 29, 2017

After blowing us away with the truly brilliant Yakuza 0, SEGA is bringing yet another entry in the cult classic franchise outside of its homeland of Japan. Acting as a complete remake of the original PS2 experience, Yakuza Kiwami tells the story of Kiryu Kazuma as he rises through the ranks of Kamurucho’s Yakuza.

Pitting you in a realistc vision of modern-day Tokyo, players are free to explore a variety of shops, arcades and restaurants while also beating up thugs and rival gangsters roaming the streets. Tied together with a compelling story and fantastic visuals, Yakuza Kiwami is not to be missed this August.

Uncharted: The Lost Legacy

22 of 22

Release Date: August 22, 2017

A brand-new standalone adventure spun off the events of Uncharted 4, Uncharted: The Lost Legacy follows a journey without the iconic Nathan Drake.

Originally planned as a DLC expansion, the scope of the project grew substantially enough for the title to warrant its own release. The Lost Legacy follows the excursions of Chloe Frazer and Nadine Ross as they venture across India in search of a mythical treasure known as the Tusk of Ganesha. No doubt there’ll be plenty of shooting, climbing and awesome set pieces along the way, so fans will definitely want to check this one out.
