While 2017 has been extremely generous so far with many great titles, much more await to be released still, but which ones should we keep an eye out for and are they worth the money?

  1. Forza Motorsport 7: October 3, 2017 – Xbox One, PC
  • Microsoft’s car racing series gets another entry this year with Forza 7 and comes with it an array of updates over its predecessor. Unlike last year’s Forza Horizon 3, which was a spin-off series, the mainline games focus more on the simulation side of car racing. Which can be imitating for some, but every Forza entry is always a good time to jump in, whether new to the car racing genre or a seasoned vet. Also, for those that will have a Xbox One X this November, the game boasts various graphical enhancements for Microsoft’s latest console.

2. The Evil Within 2 – October 13, 2017 – PS4, Xbox One, PC

  • A personal favorite of mine from this list, The Evil Within, makes a return with a sequel. While Shinji Mikami will not be returning to the role of director, it seems to be in capable hands with John Johanas who directed the first game’s DLCs, which were well received. Either way, we can not wait to enter the dark world of The Evil Within once more and conquer our fears.
