Seven new releases that show off the future of gaming
Futuristic battle game Titanfall (Xbox One) comes with giant robot-size credentials, having been designed by the co-creator of the Call of Duty series. Stuck in the middle of a conflict between a megacorporation and a militia group, you’ll battle on foot or inside mechanical titans. The game is entirely multi-player and totally intense.
Gaming’s deadliest killer gains new life on the high seas in Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag (PS4, Xbox One). Lead pirate captain Edward Kenway on looting expeditions in shipwrecks and ancient ruins and command your ship’s crew to run a sword through any scalawag who crosses you.
Call of Duty
America lies in ruins and is being defended by a guerrilla group in Call of Duty: Ghosts (PS4, Xbox One), with a story by Stephen Gaghan, the Academy Award–winning writer of Traffic. Multiplayer is where the action is, and all-new game modes, tightened controls and stellar graphics make it the best ever.
War is hell on graphics processors, but the might of these new systems lets Battlefield 4 (PS4, Xbox One) players demolish buildings, pilot jets and lead gunboats.
Need for Speed
Few things feel better than flooring a car. Need for Speed: Rivals (PS4, Xbox One) lets you do it with police on your trail.
Dead Rising 3
Hordes of zombies swarm in Dead Rising 3 thanks to the Xbox One’s power.
Video game legend John Carmack revamps his classic game in Wolfenstein: The New Order (PS4, Xbox One), following a World War II soldier who takes on the Nazis’ most futuristic weapons.
