Most Anticipated Games 2010 #4

Here’s what you can expect in the remaining months of 2010, I’m sure at least one will take your fancy.

We’ve been treated to some great games so far this year but there are plenty more still to look forward to. Here’s what you can expect in the remaining months of 2010, I’m sure at least one will take your fancy.

Pro Evolution Soccer 2011 (360, PS3, PS2, PSP, Wii, PC)
The series has been in the decline these past few years, but Konami are looking to put an end to that with a completely re-worked passing system, as well as a whole host of other new features. Early gameplay and feature-centric videos have been very promising thus far, and those lucky enough to get their hands on the latest code have been very impressed, well, except for the goalkeepers, who still need a little work.

In addition to the passing system, they’ve also stripped away assisted AI to give you a much greater freedom on and off the ball. The tackling is also something they felt needed tweaking, and now there are various ways to jostle and attack the ball, without simply running next to a player and bashing buttons like a madman until you win it back. The animation system has also been reworked, which is an area FIFA have been dominant in for some time, but Konami have countered that by adding a new fluidity to play and hundreds of hour’s worth of motion-capture.

So if you jumped the Pro Evolution Soccer ship when it hit stormy seas, it’s time to think about climbing back aboard. The game has a European release of October 22, with a North American offering likely to follow shortly after.

Call of Duty: Black Ops (360, PS3, Wii, DS, PC)
Surely there aren’t many gamers out there unaware of this upcoming title, or any games being released this holiday season that can claim to be bigger. Call of Duty has firmly planted itself as ‘the’ shooter to own, after two hugely successful Modern Warfare titles, and now the seventh title in the series, Black Ops, will look to add to an already gargantuan reputation.

The game is more a sequel to Call of Duty: World at War than anything else, and is being developed by the people behind that game – Treyarch. This in itself has caused a lot of heated debate, as a good portion of people believe those in the series developed by Infinity Ward to be the superior games.

Set during the Cold War era, you will take on the role of black ops operators, sent on missions to various locales, including controversial hotspots such as Vietnam and Laos. In addition to new weapons, gamers will be able to make use of a re-worked vehicle mechanic and a four-player online co-op mode.

The game is set for release on November 9, 2010

Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood (360, PS3, PC)
Once again taking on the role of Ezio Auditore, the game takes place shortly after the events of Assassin’s Creed II, and thing’s have taken a turn for the worse. Your uncle Mario has been killed (It’s-a-me Mario! – best line ever) and it’s your task to avenge his death by heading to Rome and seeking those responsible.

This time you’re a Master Assassin, and recruiting new assassins and training them to aid you with certain missions is just as vital to success.

Similar to the last game, where you were able to improve Monteriggioni through various building upgrades; Brotherhood allows for the entire restoration of Rome (cue Rome wasn’t built in a day jokes). This won’t be any easy task either, because it will be the largest and most diverse city Ubisoft have ever attempted to create, with five separate districts breaking up proceedings.

The game has multiple release dates for North America, Australia and Europe, which are November 16, 18 and 19 respectively.

F1 2010 (360, PS3, PC)
There has never been a more exciting time for the sport. Ferrari has a born winner in Fernando Alonso, who is looking to repeat what past legends who have raced for the ‘Black Horse’ have achieved. McLaren now has the last two former World Champions, both of which happen to be British and built up a strong rapport together. Mercedes have acquired the services of a certain Michael Schumacher, who is only the most successful Formula One driver of all time. Then there’s Red Bull who have taken everyone by surprised with a succession of dominant performances.

If that wasn’t cause enough to get excited about F1 2010 then how about what the developers claim to be "the most complicated weather system ever seen in a racing game". The track will begin to lose grip slowly as the rain falls, hitting certain spots harder, and those that are shaded less so. Then as the rain filters away you’ll begin to notice subtle differences in the track and a ‘drying line’ will being to form.

The game has been confirmed as including all 24 drivers and all 19 races from the Formula One calendar, and should be released September.

  • Except for F1 2010, I'm waiting for all the other three games. Can't really wait to play AC Brotherhood, since ACII is so far the best games I've ever played in my life.

  • PES 2011, F12010 and COD: Black Ops got my attention. Definitely getting COD and F12010

  • I can't believe Starcraft 2 was not mentioned.

  • @mambazo:



    It was mate, in a previous entry.

    When I wrote this StarCraft II wasn't upcoming, it was released.

    Here is the link.

  • Amnesia is missing from that list ;p ok that's my personal most anticipated game and surely not known enough to be part of the list lol. But yeah.. I'm actually not waiting for any of these games o_O

  • @mambazo: That's because Starcraft II is already out (and it was mentioned in the previous Most Anticipated Games entry). And frankly, SCII doesn't need a mention. It's awesome in and of itself.



     



    Honestly, the only game on this list I'm interested in is AC: Brotherhood. As for Black Ops, I've had enough Call of Duty for at least an entire decade.

  • Eagerly awaiting Brotherhood and Black Ops. And I, too, think that Infinity Ward makes the better COD installments.


    Posted Aug 01, 2010

  • I'll deffo get the first two and deffo pass the other two.


    Posted Aug 02, 2010

  • I am patiently waiting for black ops...very patiently, and that is starting to run out..

  • What, no Dead Rising 2?
    Posted Sep 02, 2010

  • cant wait for assasins creed bloodlines i hope this one is a little harder as the previous 2 games were quite easy lol


    Posted Sep 13, 2010

  • I was thinking of midnight-purchasing Black Ops, but since I think it hits the shelves the same day as the S5 Doctor Who Blu-rays, I'll probably wat to just get them both at once at a reasonable hour.


    Posted Oct 15, 2010

  • F1 2010 is super awesome! I'll be getting both FIFA & PES 2011 soon.
