Xbox Games To Look Forward To This Year
2014 is a big year for the gaming industry. With the release of popular game consoles like Xbox One, gamers are really keeping their eyes open when it comes to the release of new game titles. With games like Watch dogs, Dark Souls 2, Titanfall and more, the gaming era is really starting to skyrocket into the next generation.
The upcoming Watch Dogs is an action-adventure game that is based on technology and hacking. Aiden Pierce who is the main character is an experienced computer hacker who will be fighting crime through technology. After his family was brutally attacked by criminals, he made a promise to himself that he would never let that happen to anyone again.
His primary mission will be to take control of a network known as CtOS. This network is responsible for managing all electronic devices within that area. Once he has achieved control of this network, he’ll be able to hack into people’s cell phones, laptops, and all other electronic devices. From this point, his only focus will be to keeps taps on his family and watch over the city of Chicago 24 hours a day.

Dark Souls 2:
Dark Souls 2 is a sequel to part one, but will not have a direct correlation to each other. The storyline will center around an undead character who is cursed. Throughout the game, he will spend his time looking for a cure to his curse. Although the story lines between parts 1 and 2 are not directly connected, they will still take place in the same world.
The gameplay will be packed with action-packed battles, corrupt bosses, and unforgiving enemies. Dark Souls 2 will also include a multi-player mode in which online games can share their experiences and add another element to the gameplay.

The upcoming Titanfall game will only be available to Microsoft systems. The game will incorporate various weaponry, pilots, and Titans. The Titanfall multiplayer only gameplay will allow for a total of 12 players to play against each other at one time. This means that all battles will consist of 6 vs 6 players. Online players will have the choice to either play in teams or against each other. They will also be able to communicate with each other which I thought was a pretty cool element.
While playing, people will be able to throw bombs, use Titans, and kill each other with multiple high power weapons. Pilots will also be able run on walls and jump off rooftops. Titanfall will be a firt-person shooter with action-packed levels consisting of unique obstacles on every corner.

All in all, these 3 games look like they will be really entertaining. I can’t wait for all 3 to be released so I can see for myself if they will live up to all the hype.
