Upcoming PS4 Games 2017

by

Will these games be the best PS4 games in 2017?

2016 was a great year for PS4, with amazing titles like Uncharted 4: A Thief's End, Gravity Rush Remastered, Ratchet and Clank and The Witness. However, 2017 looks set to top it with an even more impressive offering

Sony has already had a strong startwith the likes of Gravity Rush 2, Resident Evil 7 and Horizon Zero Dawn, but there's still plenty more to come.

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. Then we’ve got Persona 5, which is finally coming to PS4 and PS3 later this year after what feels like an eternity of anticipation.

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

days gone

1 / 15

Days Gone

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.
Developer: Bioware
Release Date: March 21 (US) March 21 (Elsewhere)

EA and Bioware surprised us all with a March release date for Andromeda. With many expecting to have to wait until the end of the year to explore the galaxy once again, but we're just a few weeks away from launch!

Also, for Xbox One players, you'll be able to get an early look at Mass Effect Andromeda a full week ahead of launch and enjoy a whopping 10 hours of it with EA Access. This intergalactic adventure has a lot of hype to live up to, and seems perfectly poised to live up to it.
persona 5

3 / 15

Persona 5

Developer: Atlus

Platform: PS4, PS3

The next entry in the critically acclaimed JRPG franchise, Persona 5 is set to be more stylish and ambitious than any game before it.

Taking place in a modern depiction of Tokyo, Japan, you play as a young, reclusive high school student.

As a member of a mysterious group known as The Phantom Thieves of Heart you will explore dungeons, solve mysteries and socialise with your high school friends.

If previous games in the series are any indication, this will be another challenging, addictive adventure with hundreds upon hundreds of hours of content.

Pre-order at Amazon.co.uk from £49 | Amazon.com from $59

Expected release date: April 4, 2017
red dead 2

4 / 15

Red Dead Redemption 2

Developer: Rockstar Games
Release Date: Autumn 2017

Red Dead Redemption 2 stands tall as one of 2017'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.

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.
prey

5 / 15

Prey

Developer: Arkane Studios
Release Date: May 5, 2017

Acting as what is essentially a reboot of the cult classic Xbox 360 shooter, Prey puts you in the shoes of Morgan Yu aboard Talos One, a highly-advanced space station that quickly falls prey to an ominous alien menace.

From the creators of the fantastic Dishonored series, Prey will give the player a plethora of unique equipment and abilities to navigate the metallic corridors of Talos One and outsmart numerous enemies. You can even transform into a coffee mug, blending into your surroundings.

All of this is topped off with an original sci-fi narrative packed with intrigue, taking place in an alternate universe where President Kennedy survived his assassination and went on to revolutionise the NASA Space Program.
death stranding

6 / 15

Death Stranding

Developer: Kojima Productions

Platform:
PS4 and PC

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 Neo

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

7 / 15

Gran Turismo Sport

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.

The game will also fully support Sony’s Playstation VR headset upon release, with an open beta set to take place later this year.

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

Expected release date:
Spring 2017

god of war

8 / 15

God of War

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
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

10 / 15

Detroit: Become Human

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.

Related: Resident Evil 7 preview

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.

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


Expected release date: TBA
Hellblade 6
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
WiLD 15
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.

So if you've ever wanted to have your own wolf pack, fly like an eagle, ride a bear or even just have the entire rabbit population bow their fuzzy ears to you, this is the game.

Not to mention the graphics look amazing, particularly when it comes to the fur.

Pre-order at Amazon.co.uk from £54.99

Expected release date: TBC 2016
Spider Man PS4 3

13 / 15

Spider-Man

Developer: Insomniac Games

Platform: PS4

The long rumoured Spider-Man title by Insomniac Games has finally surfaced, and it's coming exclusively to PS4.

Players can expect to step into the shoes of our favourite web head as we sling across Manhattan with a host of iconic abilities at our disposal.

ni no kuni 2

14 / 15

Ni No Kuni 2: Revenant Kingdom

Developer: Level-5

Publisher: Bandai Namco

After the hugely successful Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch charmed us all on PS3, the series is returning once again with Ni No Kuni 2: Revenant Kingdom on PS4 and PC.

The story focuses on the young ruler of Ding Dong Dell known as King Evan Pettiwhisker Tildrum (isn't it already adorable?) with the fox-eared ruler the victim of a coup. The story will follow Tildrum as he seeks to reclaim the throne, and players will once again do so with a collection of creative monsters to battle in turn-based combat.

Release Date: TBC 2017
shenmue 3

15 / 15

Shenmue 3

Developer: Ys Net

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.

We haven't seen the game for a while, which leads many to expect a big showing from Shenmue 3 at E3 2017. We can only hope.

Release Date: TBC 2017

No man's sky it's a must, the game it's out of this world in every sense besides been in my opinion the most original game ever.
Wild looks really nice, different and a refreshing title .
Don't forget Kingdom under fire 2 it's releasing in spring for PS4 , I've been waiting 8 years now for this title .
Some good games are going to be released this year, let's hope FF15 wont be delayed for 2017

The lack of No Man's Sky is disturbing.

Gravity Rush 2 is definitely one game I can get behind. It was so much fun on PSVita, I can't wait to see it on PS4. Also, any good games to get for PS4? I saw most of its current games getting blasted, and I'm getting second thoughts about getting one...

Just so you know, the title of the Page says 20167 instead of 2017. Your welcome ;)

Realized I have to load a page for each game instead of scrolling....so going somewhere else for my list. Please don't do this in the future. It makes your site very unappealing.

No Man's Sky is awful. Great concept for a massive open-world game, but it's not there yet. Not even close.

Ugly pixelated first-gen graphics, awkward gameplay, only a few weapons, boring NPCs, bad combat, bland quests, and (literally) a trillion planets to explore...but nearly all look exactly the same.

I bought it for $60 new at launch and returned the game the next day for $4 at GameStop. That should tell you a lot about what others think when you can't even resell it for 1/50th of what you paid for it on the second day of it's release. Some GameStops I called wouldn't even buy them back at all. Unlimited potential with no appeal.

Hopefully other studios (which can make great RPG open-world games like Bethesda and CD Projekt Red) will use their algorithm and make games with it that are actually enjoyable. I could play Fallout 4 and Witcher 3 for the next 10 years if there were no limits on exploration.
