As we’re getting into the new year, there’s a lot on the table for the first quarter of 2017. Expectations are high, as well as competition, with companies starting to break into new markets with the release of some new platforms. Here’s some of the best PS4 games, either already released or due out later this month:

Resident Evil: Biohazard

revil

Capcom’s back, with a complete U-turn on style and feel: Resident Evil: Biohazard returns to its original feel and play style. No more car chases, and gunfights. This fully VR enabled experience goes back to the slow, scary atmosphere that makes us shake in our boots. One house. Lots of puzzles and story elements to follow. Creepy ambient sounds. Not enough ammo. Critics are saying RE7 is a must-buy game; VR players are saying it’s the best PSVR experience to date.

Released Feb 8, 2017

 

Horizon: Zero Dawn

The player controls William (Adams), one of the few acknowledged western samurai, in his journey as he battles his way across war-torn Japan. The combat is exclusively similar to Dark Souls, with its own twists and changes. Expect to have many close calls, near deaths and laser sharp dodges.

These factions all have separate classes with unique weapons, moves, and fighting styles, to offer lots of mixed up play to keep things fresh.

Hopefully, that’s enough to keep you busy for a few weeks. Make sure to get out there and try some of the new titles! A few niche titles to also look out for: Ping Pong VR, The Onion Knights, and Y ‘s Origin.
