Gamescom. It's basically all I can think about in the build up to the largest gaming expo in Europe. Finally, Europe gets its turn to try out some of the biggest games in the industry! Ubisoft will be present at the event with all of their games being hands-on - an unprecedented amount of fun lies ahead. [Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six: Siege](tag:2768317), [Assassin's Creed](tag:437814) Syndicate, For Honor, and of course, Tom Clancy's The Division.

I can't wait to see what all of these games play like, but my level of excitement for two games in particular is palpable. The Division has been something the gaming community has been looking forward to for years, whereas For Honor was only revealed a short while ago at E3. However, it's the kind of game that I think I've always wanted and I can't wait for these two games to get their release dates on XBOX One, PS4 and PC!

Tom Clancy's The Division vs For Honor

But if you were given the opportunity to reach the top of a ridiculously long queue and play one of these games, where would your loyalties lie? Is The Division something you've been waiting for, for too long to pass up on? Or has For Honor really captured your attention in the last few months? Personally, the latter has exceeded my anticipation for the former.

For Honor gives us the chance to engage with knights, vikings and samurai. Pick which kind of warrior you've always wanted to be and engage in enormous battles with tons of NPCs to obliterate in your search for other players. The combat between players is the kind of thing I've always wanted to see in Video Games. It allows us to actually control a sword and our actions in order to block, parry and strike when we think the moment is right. I can't wait to see how this feels at Gamescom!

Which Release Date Are You Waiting For?

The Division will offer us the chance to level up RPG-style in an online third-person New York City. I love my RPGs, but some times a good hack and slash is all you need in life. I sincerely hope that For Honor doesn't feel like a lackluster attempt at invigorating the combat style seen in the Dynasty Warriors series. They can get old pretty fast. But any game that proclaims to give me the feeling of what it'd be like to fight as a giant and powerful samurai I'm game for!

Let us know in the comments whether you're waiting for [Tom Clancy's The Division](tag:2684169) or For Honor and whether you'll be at Gamescom to check out some of the best AAA titles on the way for 2015 and 2016!
