5. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

There’s a lot of excitement for this one. While there are some that aren’t fans of the Witcher series (like here), there are many more that can’t wait for the return of Geralt and his search for the Wild Hunt. Promising to be the finale of this trilogy, Witcher 3 is a next-generation only affair; CD Projeckt have stated there is no way this will run on current hardware. We’ve got a bit of a wait though – it’s due for release sometime in 2014.

Great books and great games so far, I’m looking forward to seeing the end of Geralt’s ploughin’ adventure!” – James Murphy.

Not officially announced yet but we know it's coming. Halo 4 was the start of a new trilogy, after all...

4. Halo 5

The ‘Reclaimer Trilogy’, starting with last years Halo 4, was announced back in 2011 – Halo 5 will be released on the next Xbox console at some point. While whispers of it being a surprise launch title persist, it’s more likely we’ll see this released November 2014. Maybe a sneak peek at this years E3? Don’t rule it out. Halo 4 left the Master Chief in an interesting place – we’re looking forward to seeing what 343 do next.

Our Community says:

Halo 4 was the strongest Halo yet; great campaign and the multiplayer was as brilliant as ever. I want the Chief back soon, and can’t wait to see Halo in the next-generation!” – Sinead Philips.

The Thief reboot is looking exciting; the franchise has been away for a long time.

3. Thief

We’re big fans of the Thief series here at Low Fat Gaming and it’s been away too long. Getting the Deus Ex treatment (from the same studio, though different team), Thief is being rebooted for the next-generation of consoles and high-end PC’s. Previews are looking promising but, as ever, we’re looking forward to seeing and playing it for ourselves. Thief’s return looks to have captured the gaming worlds imagination so far.

Our Community says:

Been a fan of Thief from back in the day; it’s the grandaddy of the stealth genre and I’m glad it’s coming back to show the pretenders how it’s done” – Pat Divilly.

Multiplayer will be better than ever; let's hope the single-player is the best yet.

2. Battlefield 4

We’re hot for this. Due to land this Christmas, Battlefield 4 is currently looking like THE FPS to own this year. While we’re certain the multiplayer will be as awesome as ever, we’re hoping the campaign is up to scratch this time. DICE have acknowledged their past problems and are promising to deliver. One thing is for certain, we’ll be seeing destruction on a scale we’ve never seen before. Bring it on!

Battlefield 4. I twiddled my thumb over three and now it seems everyone I know plays it“. – Joe Pegg

Will we see it by E3? Fingers crossed.

1. Fallout 4

It hasn’t even been announced yet, but Fallout 4 was the clear winner of our poll – gamers are chomping at the bit for ANYTHING Fallout related! We’re hoping the inevitable sequel takes more of a lead from Obsidian’s New Vegas humour and world-building, while keeping Fallout 3‘s epic scale. The question is – when will we see it? Soon we reckon; if it isn’t revealed by E3 we’ll eat a Radscorpion.

Our Community says:

Fallout 4 for me, so far I’ve played the first one, 3 and New Vegas; all of which were brilliant (if a little buggy). It would be nice to see it taken into a different direction though, China or Europe would give a nice fresh spin to the series along with new factions to fight/ally yourself with“. – Peter Evans.

Fallout 4, why? Because I want to experience that hopelessness feeling from exploring whatever wasteland Bethesda decides to set the game in, the atmosphere is second to none in Fallout and I expect no different from 4, not to mention the amount of hours I put into Fallout 3“. – Garrus Vakarian.

– Dave Green
