    Default An Exciting List Of PC Games For 2012

    And at the top of the list is…

    Dishonored
    Arkane Studios’ weird fiction of an alternate universe and an assassin with strange (and occasionally rat-based) powers promises to land squarely in the sort of territory we like to explore. With Deus Ex lead Harvey Smith plus Dark Messiah brain Raphael Colantonio at the controls, and a mandate to make things stealthy and sneaky, this could well be the most interesting game to appear in 2012. Find out what we know about the game by reading more here.

    Planetside 2
    There’s not a whole lot of faith out there that SOE will get the MMOFPS thing right with Planetside 2, but they came so close with the original, and delivered such epic combat, that we can’t wait to see what they achieve here. The mix of territory war across infantry and vehicular action kept us engrossed for several months back in 2003, and if they can keep the server populations up for the remake, we’ll probably be counting this as one of the great games of 2012. Read our most recent interview about Planetside 2 right here.

    Dead State
    Still sitting on the list from last year, our interest in zombie RPG Dead State is nevertheless undiminished. It’s a full-blown survival RPG, being developed by some veterans from Troika (Bloodlines) in their own indie outfit. We hear that there’s to be big news about the game in 2012, but until that comes along you can catch up with why we’re so excited about this game by reading this interview with Brian Mitsoda, in which he sets out his ambitions for the title.

    Diablo III
    There’s no point denying that we’re lusting for more of this, despite the diabolical always-on setup. The beta gave us a taste of the most beautifully hyper-violent dungeon-crawler and we want to sink our stubby little teeth into the rest of it. Entertaining solo and genuinely brilliant co-op, the beta was just a hint of what is probably going to be the most popular PC game of 2012, even if it is not the most interesting. For some impressions of what we thought you can take a read of this article about the beta access.

    Mass Effect 3
    That’s right, the Mass Effect arc comes to its Earth-invading conclusion in 2012. Bioware’s space-based guns & conversation game looking like the most spectacular game of the series, but we’ve yet to really get to grips with the changes that the single player is introducing. Interesting, perhaps, that the only bit of it RPS has been able to see first hand has been the co-op play? You can read about that just here.

    Starcraft II: Heart Of The Swarm
    The Zerg-led second single-player campaign for Starcraft II will arrive in 2012, and that will excite some, but it’s really the changes to the highly-competitive multiplayer (eight new units and three removed) that will be wrought by this, which will earn the most attention. Blizzard haven’t let an RPS agent look at the game, yet, but our Eurogamer chums have a campaign-focused preview just here.

    Guild Wars 2
    NCSoft and ArenaNet can’t afford to get this one wrong, and we doubt they will, either. The sequel to no-subscription MMO Guild Wars is one of the most promising multiplayer titles we’ve ever seen, with a vast and beautiful MMO world, an astonishing array of characters and potential customisation, and more of an open-world focus, while still sustaining the individual storyline stuff that made the original game so interesting. We went hands on with the game over here.

    Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning
    Reckoning has impressed us. Not as much as it might have done, but enough that we’re now definitely paying attention. A really big budget RPG with a new IP (and an old trad fantasy theme) and an action focus means this wants to be all things to all players (as long as they like swords & conversation) and it’s looking ludicrously slick to seal the deal. Alec had some time alone with it over here and it seems to be improving with each glimpse we get of it.

    Monaco
    Another big name that we expected to land in 2011 but that has crept in 2012, Monaco is probably the indie title we are most keen to see go live. It’s a ludicrous lo-fi multiplayer heist brimming with ideas and smart design. There’s even online multiplayer for launch, which means the hivemind will be all over this like tar and feathers. Read more about why and how to excited about Andy Schatz’ project here.

    Borderlands 2
    The original Borderlands’ cell-shaded FPS Diablo ‘em up wasn’t to everyone’s tastes, but to those who enjoyed getting a posse together and roaring out into the wastelands, it was a minor classic. Returning to Pandora with a squad of new characters, the sequel promises more of the same, only bigger and better. Which is what sequels do, right? We’ve already had a chance to talk to Gearbox about the game and see a little bit of it in action, and you can read the account of that just here.

    Quantum Conundrum
    Kim Swift, one of the key brains behind Portal, did not stay at Valve. Instead she moved over to Airtight Games, where she’s the creative lead on a new puzzler called Quantum Conundrum. It throws the player into the mansion of mad scientist, in which everything is a loopy science experiment. Needless to say, we’ll have to puzzle our way through. The first glimpses of the game can be see here.

    The Secret World
    The other MMO we’re getting excited about is Funcom’s The Secret World. If nothing else, it deals with subject matter that MMOs haven’t tackled before: the contemporary supernatural and global conspiracy. In The Secret World everything is true, and you’re just as likely to be tangling with Great Old Ones as you are sorting the vampires from the werewolves. With guns and hip contemporary clothing, it’s bound to gather a sizeable audience. We’re written loads about it, as you can see here.

    Max Payne 3
    Following a hiatus of eight years, Max is to return. It’s being developed by Rockstar this time, with Remedy having moved on to Alan Wake, and it’s dripping with spectacular gun action. It’s looking like an appropriate update to the series, too, despite the surprising move from New York ghetto to Sao Paulo slum. We’ve already had a look at the game in motion, and you can read those impressions here.

    Alan Wake
    And while we’re on the subject of Remedy, they’ve announced that their 360 spooky action ‘em up, Alan Wake, is going to arrive on PC. Will it be polished for PC or impractically ported? Only time will tell. We had a bit of a chat with them here.

    Torchlight II
    Runic’s dungeon-crawling sequel has been delayed and delayed, missing the expected 2011 release, and that can only be a good thing. It means they’ve got more time and money to spend on making it even better. The original was such a quick development, and still a minor gem, that we’re hoping the extra time given to this will bring it to a wondrous shine! Dan had a play of an early build of the game and you can read about that here.

    Prey 2
    Few games due for a 2012 release are as intriguing as Human Head’s Prey 2. It bares little resemblance to the original offbeat linear shooter, and instead is pitched as an open-ended alien-stalking bounty-hunter game set in a sci-fi space city. Yes, that DOES sound like the kind of game we’d like to take a look at. Fortunately we got to chat with the devs about it just here.

    Bioshock Infinite
    The flying city of Columbia pretty much ensures that the big Bioshock sequel has an even more impressive backdrop than its predecessor, but can it also build on the FPS mechanics? With a companion character and some critical choices to be made about the action, it looks a lot less “would you kindly” than the first game, but it’s hard to know whether Irrational can really pull off something that will wow the sceptics. But then when was the last time those guys were wowed? Exactly. RPS Agent Gillen had a chat with Ken Levine about the game over here.

    Arma 3
    Arma 3 will continue the heavily simulatory trend in the Arma games, but it also has a new twist: it leaps forward into the near future. This means that while it’s going to feature some contemporary hardware it’s also going to feature a lot of what might be in the hands of soldiers in a couple of decades time. It’s going to be a weird, wired war. I had a quick chat with Bohemia boss Marek Spanel last year.
    Hawken
    There’s a real danger that this amazing-looking multiplayer mech game will be snapped up for exclusivity on the consoles, but right now the developers Adhesive say they want to bring it to PC as well as the TV boxes. It certainly deserves to be on the format of ultimate deathmatch, because the fast-paced play and stupendous visuals do basically ask for a PC setup. At least in my brain. A bunch more videos can be seen here.

    Cartel
    In what was basically a reaction to EA announcing that Syndicate would be a co-op FPS, Paradox announced they’d be developing a cyberpunk world-conquest game (with attending tactical mode) called Cartel. We talked to them about their plans just here, and laughed the sad laugh of journalists who have seen too much.

    Grim Dawn
    Nothing can contain our excitement over Grim Dawn – look! there goes a bit of it now, whizzing off into space. Crate Entertainment spoke to us about their plans for the hardcore ARPG, and said: “I think we’re probably unique just in the sense that, while most studios are redesigning their games to be more casual-player friendly, we’re busy making Grim Dawn more complex and probably casual-player hostile.” I could have hugged them. We hoped this would appear in 2011, actually, but we’ll settle for 2012.

    Crusader Kings II
    Few men can truly say that they wouldn’t want to have conquered Europe in Medieval times, but the truth is that most of us would be too lazy and weak to actually get on with doing so. Not to worry, because there’s a game for that – Crusader Kings II should appear in a few short weeks and sort the men from the benevolent dictators. A simulation that is as much about people as it is armies, this will is one of the more fascinating wargames out there. We have studied it at length.

    I bought my Legendary Key for Grim Dawn 2 years ago, awaiting this release. And, thanks to ordering the Legendary Edition, I will have automatic access to the Alpha and the Beta, and if you look in the credits, you should see Shattered.Likeness.

    Might have to install Titan Quest Gold again this weekend, and play through again with some of the newer mods that have been released in anticipation of Grim Dawn.
