The Elder Scrolls Online

Game: The Elder Scrolls Online
Developer: ZeniMax
Publisher: Bethesda
Release: June 2014
Genre: MMO

 

 

It is a time of strife and unrest. Armies of revenants and dark spirits manifest in every corner of Tamriel. Winters grow colder and crops fail. Mystics are plagued by nightmares and portents of doom.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Elder Scrolls Online is the first game in the popular fantasy RPG series that will let you play against other humans. Previous games are famous for their open worlds and free roaming, combined with amazing graphics and solid gameplay. The latest game, Skyrim, was released in 2011 and got stellar reviews both from the press and the users (the PC version has a metacritic score of 94/8.3). TES:Online will let you explore almost the entire world of Tamriel, as opposed to just one area (as in Oblivion and Skyrim). You will have nine races to choose from and three factions. I strongly recommend you take a look at the official website and also some of these gameplay videos from the PC version.

Mad Max is an upcoming PS4 title that is based on the three movies with the same name. The movies were made in the late 70's and early 80's and are worth checking out if you missed them. There is supposed to be a new movie coming up in 2015. Mad Max takes place in the Australian wasteland after a nuclear war has ravaged the planet. In the game you play as Max himself who is in search for his stolen vehicle, the Interceptor. Gameplay will focus on combat, mostly with vehicles. You drive a car called Magnum Opus and have a partner called Chumbucket who will help you upgrade your ride. There is a crafting system in place as well, allowing you to create new weapons and tools. Gamespot has a nice video preview here and there is an official trailer right here.
