It's nearly the end of 2013, many game companies have determined the future plans to their games in the next year. Quite many new games were announced or confirmed release time recently. Gamers certainly need some better experience in game world in a new year. Here I list some most anticipated games of mine for 2014. If you have no idea what to play next year, just have a look at the games in the list. Welcome to enrich the list by adding more recommended games in comments and sharing with everyone here.
Many games are possible to be delayed as long as it's under developement. WildStar is a game like that. After went through several betas, a new but also the last beta is coming this winter. All of us can enjoy ourself in the Nexus world soon. If everything goes well, 2014 spring is just the time when we meet each other in this sci-fi game.
Blizzard's expansion for their games are always worth waiting. With the new story, Reaper of Souls adds a number of new features to the core gameplay of Diablo 3, including a new character class - the Crusader, a new artisan - the Mystic, new level cap, weapons, armors, skills, monsters and more. Blizzard has announced to release Reaper of Souls sometime in 2014 for several platforms, such as PC, Mac, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4 etc.
How many of you were lucky and participated the first Closed Beta of Black Desert? Anyway, the second Closed Beta is scheduled to kick off early 2014. Of course, it's in Korea. But don't be depressed, according to blackdesertspoint's interview with the dev team in Feb, we might have an English version of Black Desert in 2014 or 2015 in EU. But the date could be changed due to their business plan. I only can say, a glimmer of hope is better than nothing.
Mists of Pandaria is more than a year old, have you enjoyed the new content of this expansion? Although Blizzard hasn't revealed Warlords of Draenor's release date, we can take a guess. It has been a time since last expansion released. If they want to keep WoW subscriptions steady or maybe higher, they'd better release the new expansion soon. But when? Some guys estimated that it's late spring or early summer in 2014. But if Blizzard want to disappoint us, the release time of late summer or fall is still possible.
As one of the members in SEGA Phantasy Star series, Phantasy Star Online 2 is a successor of PSO. PSO2 is developed to provide unique and innovative gameplay experience in online RPG by offering the following three pillars: 'infinite adventure', 'top-level action for online RPG' and 'the ultimate character creation'. In PSO2, player takes an adventurous journey to unknown galactic territories as a member of 'ARCS' expedition, an Oracle interplanetary cruise fleet in the infinite universe. As the game's SEA publisher, Asiasoft will release the game in early 2014. But I am afraid that we still need to wait for a long time until it launches in the west. So if there is IP blocked, just use VPN to solve the problem. At least it's an English version.
Star Citizen, the space trading and combat simulator game is very successful in funding. Dev team keeps releasing modules to players, which allow backers of this project to explore their virtual ships from a 1st person perspective. Game's beta maybe will start at the end of 2014 and final release maybe is in 2015. But it's ok, we can experience the different modules released by dev team until its full release. Just keep an eye on the official site for each module's release date.
Destiny is an ambitious evolution of the first-person action genre that brings gamers together in a shared, persistent world. Destiny's gameplay was first revealed at Sony's E3 conference. The epic sci-fi shooter features class-based gunplay. The game public beta has confirmed to be coming spring 2014 on PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One. The official release date is to be announced.
