This had to top the list as Watch Dogs has been highly sought after since we first saw the trailer what seems like a lifetime ago. Frustratingly it’s now been delayed into the early part of next year - but like whisky, game development gets better with time (er, just don’t ask Duke Nukem Forever). If you’ve somehow managed to miss it, the game is an open-world game built around themes of surveillance and hacking, which makes it seem exactly right for our time (I wonder if Edward Snowden will be picking it up if it gets released in Russia?). The hacking is used to control events in games - for example, you can mess with traffic lights to make cars collide. Perhaps most intriguing of all is the online multiplayer functions. The game will, on occasion, just silently add a second player to your game - whilst you still think you’re playing single player. The second player, who will know that it’s multiplayer will have to hunt you down and hack some data from your phone - and if discovered it becomes about who will kill who first. Then you’ll seamlessly return to your single player game. I can’t wait to see how it works in practice.
We’re now less than a month away from the release of the PS4, and I hope understandably, we’re getting very excited. So here’s a selection of the six games we’re looking forward to the most. Don’t worry Xbox fans – we’ll be putting together a similar list for Microsoft’s console soon!
