Releasing: Spring 2014

Releasing on both current-gen and next-gen consoles, one of the most anticipated games of 2014 comes from Ubisoft, placing you in the role of super-hacker, Aiden Pearce. A futuristic Chicago is your open-world playground as you upset the system of some bad people. Grand Theft Auto could have very well met its match here!

#24 – Rambo: The Video Game
Available On: Xbox 360, PS3
Releasing: Spring 2014

Teased for a while, the apparent Rambo video game is now aiming for a release early next year.

Adapted from DC/Vertigo comic series, Fables, The Wolf Among Us continues the story of Fabletown sheriff, Bigby Wolf in its latter four episodes.

And speaking of The Walking Dead, the tragic story of Clementine continues in The Walking Dead: Season Two. Again, the first episode is available now, with the remaining four planned throughout 2014. Your decisions from the previous season and 400 Days DLC will carry over once again, and given that The Walking Dead was one of the best games of 2012, you won’t want to miss an already great story being continued further!

#27 – Destiny

It’s also coming to next-gen consoles, and will receive exclusive perks and an exclusive beta on PlayStation consoles, but even if you haven’t upgraded, you’ll still be invited to this enormous online playground with your brothers and sisters-in-arms!

#28 – Dragon Age: Inquisition
Available On: Xbox 360, PS3
Releasing: Fall 2014

The re-branded proper third entry in the Dragon Age franchise may have originally been planned for next-gen consoles, but those still on current-gen consoles will still get to return to Thedas for a new adventure that will blend the best elements of Dragon Age: Origins and Dragon Age II, hopefully leading to a prime candidate for one of the best Western RPG’s of 2014!

#29 – Shantae: Half-Genie Hero
Available On: Xbox 360, PS3
Releasing: Fall 2014

This Kickstarter darling is currently targeting a release for late next year, showing up on literally just about every platform, including PC, handhelds, next-gen consoles and current-gen consoles. Ultimately however, it’s more Shantae, so if you’re a fan of Metroid, Castlevania, Guacamelee! and other such platformer/adventure hybrids, keep an eye on this great series shooting for greater mainstream appeal soon!
