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
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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
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

God of War
7 of 22
Developer: Santa Monica
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.
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.
Detroit: Become Human
9 of 22
Developer: Quantic Dream
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.

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.

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.
