It’s time for another Final Fantasy with the upcoming sixteenth instalment in the franchise. We only have one trailer of the game to go off so far but it is already looking spectacular with familiar Final Fantasy tropes layered with tons of political intrigue, and *gasp* an all-new M rating! It is produced by Naoki “Yoshi-P” Yoshida of Final Fantasy XIV fame and directed by Hiroshi Takai who also worked on The Last Remnant.
An all-new adventure awaits our Lombax and robot duo with Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart. Players will get to journey around different planets and dimensions with new tools at their disposal to take down the sinister Dr. Nefarious. How exactly that plays out with the DualSense controller remains to be seen, but seeing as how load times are practically nonexistent in the PS5, players can expect some really cool interdimensional zaniness to come out of this game.
The adventure of Aloy continues with Horizon Forbidden West, where we’ll see our daring protagonist make her way to post-apocalyptic San Francisco to face new terrain, new threats and new machines. We can see Aloy swimming underwater in the trailer with a breathing mask of sorts, this could be hinting at some possible underwater sections in the game.
Fans of the movie Groundhog Day and its various permutations across all of entertainment will have a field day with Deathloop, a first-person shooter game that has you playing as an assassin stuck in, you guessed it, a time loop. Your goal is to take out the targets in an area before your loop resets. Only things aren’t as simple as it sounds. There is another assassin in this game, and the one she is hunting is… you.
Ubisoft’s upcoming Far Cry 6 will see the return of the actor behind everyone’s favourite Breaking Bad and The Mandalorian villain Giancarlo Esposito as the game’s main antagonist Anton Castilla. Meanwhile, players will get to take on the role of Yaran Dani Rojas, a resistance fighter going against the dictatorship ruling the nation.
