1. Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate
Assassin’s Creed Syndicate is set in London, 1868. Just as the industrial revolution booms up in the Great Britain. You play as Jacob Frye, a gangster who works to change the fate of millions as you rally and lead the underworld to break the corrupt stranglehold on London. Basically you establish your own gang consisting of the poor workman and defeat rival gangs fed by the Templar. The game features the first transgender character in the series. Owing to the criticism Unity received due to lack of playable female characters, Syndicate introduces Evie Frye as sister of Jacob. They are the two main playable characters in the game. The game certainly has a big name to live up to. And looking at the trailer and game play the game delivers what it promised and more. The Game is coming out on 23rd October this year and is available for pre order.
2. Call of Duty: Black Ops III
After a long string of games with nothing much to offer except a different story and perhaps more guns, Advanced Warfare came as a much-needed change to the game play of the call of duty franchise with a surplus of new elements that changed the way you experienced FPS games. Now with the third installment to the Black Ops Franchise, Treyarch is trying to provide the fans of the series with something new. Black Ops III continues the story from its prequel, and is described as
a dark gritty future where a new breed of Black Ops soldier emerges and the lines are blurred between our own humanity and the cutting-edge military technology that define the future of combat.

The year of the star wars would be incomplete without a star wars game, wouldn’t it? So EA DICE steps up to brave the expectations of star wars fans and provide a game that would live up to them. Star wars: Battlefront was also one of the Key games being announced in the E3 this year. Our hands are itching to grab a piece of the multi player action playing as the rebels or the stormtroopers.

The game focuses on sieges and would not have a single-player campaign, but the multiplayer is where the game really shines.
