1. Mass Effect: Andromeda
Scheduled to release on 21st March, 2017, this one falls under the RPG genre.
This game is a successful return to the brilliant series by BioWare. Only this time there is no shepherd to guide you along.
The people who signed up for EA access will get to play this game from March 16th, six hours before the actual release. One plays this game as Scott or Sara Ryder as the pathfinder. Your ship emerges from 600 years, and the main idea is to find humanity a new home after this. The Andromeda Initiative’s advance probes hoped that the seven “Golden Words” would support life. But, these have been blighted by some mysterious alien vaults. So, you have to play along to solve this galactic puzzle and fight new villains and succeed by making sweet music with your teammates and unlocking new tech upgrades. It is a non-linear story-line game with amazing graphic features best experienced on 4K gaming monitors.
2. Persona 5
This RPG game is set for release on April 4, 2017. The concept revolves around an average student who takes the train to school and falls asleep in class and also hangs out at the mall with friends. Moreover, the character is also a master thief!
Persona 5 has its own kind of students who have all the pressure of being a high school student and much more to deal with. It is not only about getting popular, ending up with a date or managing acne. This group consists of the Phantom Thieves of Hearts. The challenges include sneaking past guards, avoiding the various traps on the way, and also using your Persona, which is a Guardian Spirit, to defend yourself in battles.
The sequel of the very popular Persona 4, Persona 5 is expected to be much more interesting and exciting.
3. Yooka Laylee
Expected to release on April 11, 2017, this one is a Platformer type of game.
This game is a Rare Return. Kickstarter icons aim to become the Banjo-Kazooie of the modern world.
Over the last decade, games under the Platformer genre have not been many or much popular either. Yooka Laylee attempts to change this trend with an anthropomorphic chameleon and bat combo. Well, this might remind you of Banjo-Kazooie, and that is purely because the team which is making Yooka Laylee, Playtonic games, has a lot many of ex Rare staff who was behind Banjo. Now that is something to look forward to!
Prey would release on May 5, 2017, and it is an FPS type game.
Prey is a completely mind bending FPS that promises to terrify you. After the success of Skyrim: Special Edition, Doom, and Dishonored 2, this is a much awaited game from Bethesda, the publisher.
Prey is expected to be a trippy first person alien shooter game, as revealed by the trailer. It shows the protagonist walk up in an apartment multiple times as if stuck in a boring life. Moreover, he also has some disease due to which he could see himself talk to himself in the mirror. That is something to give you brains a kick. The gameplay shows the player shotgun blast out shadow like creatures and smash them with melee weapons. This looks quite straightforward, though.
5. Injustice 2
Injustice 2 is a fighting game planned to release on May 16, 2017. It is a sequel to the brutal fighting game where you have DC comic heroes and villains fighting against each other.
Injustice 2 is powered by the same engine that was behind Mortal Kombat X. That itself raises expectations that this one would also have a solid and nasty fighter. You could see the dark side o DCU here, and there is no sympathy when it comes to brutality. You get to collect gear to change your character over time and give yourself newer abilities.
Rime is all set to release in May 2017.
After 2 years of silence, this game will finally be out for gamers. The mysterious ruins and colourful landscapes would definitely be exciting to explore.

A fox companion will help you out in this quest.
7. Star Trek: Bridge Crew

You get to command a ship in Starfleet! Well, if that is not cool enough for you, then you would love the fact that it is a multiplayer VR game. Along with three of your friends, you could adopt the key roles in the bridge crew – engineering, helm, tactical, and the captain. All the crew members need to cooperate with each other to make this maiden voyage a success. Moreover, since it is a VR game, you get to yell back and forth about the game tactics.

10. Middle Earth: Shadow of War
This Action-Adventure game will be available on August 22nd, 2017. A sequel to surprise hit of 2014, this game is drastically scaled up with dynamically engineered fortress sieges and friendly war trolls.
The first game’s Nemesis system, which generates a long term rivalry with the enemy Orcs according to the gameplay, is now applied to all the different facets in Middle Earth. As such, friendships and alliances will now depend on how you play. The same is the case with the huge army that you have. A whole swathe of Helm’s Deep style forts could be taken down from all across the map, but the systematic interactions with your units is what defines every battle you play. Also, the units will be defined based on your relationships and history with them.
