Watch Dogs - May 27
Platform: PS4, PS3, Xbox 360, Xbox One
Join Aiden Pearce as he fights against the corrupt government in his city. "Watch Dogs" takes place in a near future Chicago, when technology has become a dependency and almost everything is controlled using a government operating system. Using your hacker "skillz," you can create multi-car pileups and master the art of sifting through citizens' personal information to navigate the broken world. This game highlights how controversial data mining and digital wiretapping can be used for evil purposes. It was first developed for the next generation of consoles (Xbox One and PS4) with legacy support for Xbox 360 and PS3 coming later. Trailers for the game show off the splendid graphics; we now know what Chicago looked like before "Divergent."
The Last of Us: Remastered - Q3 (July 1-Sept. 30)
Platform: PS4, PS3
After an apocalypse destroys most of civilization, survivors are faced with plague, hunger and a culture of violence in "The Last of Us." Join Joel and Ellie, a warrior and a young girl, as they fight for their lives and journey to freedom. This game was originally released last summer but has been remastered as an improved version with better visuals, 60 frames per second, native 1080-pixel display, director commentary and downloadable content. The game strives for realistic shadows and more layers of texture built into the three-dimensional world. If you're a huge fan of the game, investing in the remastered edition will be worth the cost.
