Sony and others 3rd-party developers announced many new games for the PS4 console at E3. There are way too many upcoming games for the PS4 for this year. Some are long-anticipated titles whose predecessors have shown that the sequel is worth the hype. Other games will have to be released and get reviewed by critics in order to show PS4 owners that the game itself is worth buying. But as know, there are plenty of PS4 games that can be easily put in the top 10 best PS4 games for this year. If you’re not sure which PS4 games you should start saving to buy this year, here are the best games that will come out for the PS4 in 2015.
While having inferior graphics and a very glitchy environment compared to most games released in the same year, Fallout 3 managed to become Game of the Year and was placed top game of 2008 by IGN. Now because of this, there are very high expectations for Fallout 4. Fallout 3 had an interesting story and many interesting side missions. The game will only be available on eighth generation consoles which include the PS4 and the Xbox One as well as the PC market. Fallout 4 will not be available in previous generation consoles like the PS3 and Xbox 360 – and that’s a good thing. Bethesda will not have to waste resources for previous generation consoles nor will they have to dumb down the game in order to have it released on older consoles. They will be able to take all hardware advantages the PS4 and Xbox One have. Just like its predecessor, Fallout 4 has a very likelihood of becoming game of the year. Bethesda confirmed the release date to be November 10, 2015.
Just Cause 3
If explosions and blowing stuff up is your thing, then Just Cause 3 is a game that you’re likely to buy this year.
