The 18 most anticipated games of 2017

UPDATED: The gaming year's not done yet...


We're in the back stretch of 2017 now, and this year has arguably been one of the best we've ever seen for video games. But it's not over yet.

Brilliant games like The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Horizon: Zero Dawn have kept us occupied, but many of the biggest and often best video games come out in the last months of the year. That's definitely true again this year, with games including Assassin's Creed Origins, and Star Wars Battlefront II awaiting us in the coming weeks.

Working on your holiday wish list? Not sure what's headed your way before the year's end? These are the 20 games we're still excited about for the rest of 2017.




Platform: PlayStation 4

Sony's PlayLink initiative – which revolves around PS4 games you can control with your mobile phone – might seem ripe for casual and party fare, but Hidden Agenda might surprise you.

It's a game about a serial killer called The Trapper, and you'll control a detective and a district attorney as you attempt to solve the case before he strikes again. Multiple people can use their respective phones to make key decisions in this tense game, which comes from Supermassive Games, the makers of the grim and great Until Dawn.
