After the phenomenal Hitman Absolution, Hitman Franchise was not able to give a consistent follow-up, turned out to be the disappointment for many fans. So after a long wait, finally Fans applauded with a wide smile when I/O interactive developers announced the console version of the hugely strategical third person shooter at the E3 2015 conference. The immensely detailed game, published by the “Square Enix” studio looks cinematically phenomenal in the recently published videos and the gameplay. This is certainly gonna be a treat among the Fans to be released in 2016. I am personally being a fan of tactical shooter game was disappointed by the over-rated “ Metal Gear Solid” the phantom pain, which was ok though, but had typical flaws with a weak story.
So, let’s see the original third person strategy based tactical shooter, originally inserted by Square Enix, will be able to win your hearts or not.

So let’s keep our finger crossed till we get our first hands on this gruesome First Person Shooter.
TOM CLANCY’S THE DIVISION

Developed and published by the exceedingly credible UBISOFT’s Studio, it is going to be an Open World tactical game set up in the New York City. Although the gameplay mechanics is not different than other third person RPG, but the real fun lies in the dynamic open world environment of the New York City to explore and eventually SAVE THE CITY!!

In Dark Souls has always known to be the sort of franchise that put the extensive details in terms of the gameplay, adding all the physical dynamics, however somehow always get criticism from the graphical perspective.
Since the revelations of the trailer at E3 2015, the developers confirmed that this time they are notching up the loose visual gears and turning into a perfect blend.

Platform: PS4, Xbox One, PC
When it comes to Sony official release, expectations are astoundingly raised among the fans, coz of the benchmark that past releases have created like Uncharted Series, Kill-zone series and much obvious, “The God of War”. Recently at the Paris conference, Sony showed the detailed gameplay of the “Horizon: Zero Dawn” The game is in the post development stage, confirmed by Guerrilla Games studios. It is apparent through the first impressions that Game is an open world RPG designed with the attention of the details. Though in the development, the trailer looks stunningly dynamic. The characters skins looks like a real life. I guess this game will set to the next level benchmark showing the amazing potential of the Powerful Sony.
