So today I'll be bringing you news about up coming games, let's start of with Dark Souls 3, now the Dark Souls series is loved by many of you, and criticized by some for being too hard, and with the announcement of Dark Souls 3 it is said to be the last installment in the series here are some details below
New combat features are introduced in Dark Souls III, including "Ready Stance", which are special abilities for players that allow them to deal much more damage to enemies than ordinary attacks are capable of, Small gravestones are introduced. These gravestones light up when interacted with and not only serve as players' torches, but also provide additional lore to the game. The game puts more focus on role-playing, in which the character builder is expanded and weapons are improved to provide more tactical options to players.The game features fewer maps than its predecessor Dark Souls II, but levels were interconnected and were made larger, which encourages exploration.The agility stat from Dark Souls II was removed from Dark Souls III. The game features multiplayer elements, like the previous games in the series.

Now let's move onto The Witcher 4, this week CEO Adam Kicinski confirmed on polish TV station TVN24 BiS that we will be seeing more Witcher games in the future, he stated
While The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is the end of Geralt's story, it probably won't be the last game in the series, it wouldn't be fair to fans stop making Witcher games, even if the next one is still a long time away, it's too early to talk about it, but it's not like we're forgetting about this brand, It wouldn't be fair towards the fans. We work within this universe for over a dozen years now and I don't think it's going to be the end of it."
So basically the Witcher 4 confirmed, now let's talk about Cyberpunk 2077, this game is rarely talked about, the developers are keeping things on lockdown tighter then Fort Knox's, no story details yet, but we do have some details for you, CEO Adam Kicinski stated in a interview that cyberpunk 2077 need to be better then the Witcher 3
The project is even more ambitious than we first planned, we need to create a game that will be even more successful, We have a long way ahead of us to reach the biggest commercial successes in the world,The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt was a big success with 6 million copies sold against an $81 million budget. The game was a good investment.
The game was first announced in October 2012, the developers CD Projekt Red said that they won't be talking about the game until 2017 at earliest,
Now onto EA's line up of games for next year, seems like we will be getting some awesome game line ups from the likes of Mass Effect 4 and Mirrors Edge and a unknown battlefield title, in a interview EA COO Peter Moore said earlier this week
It's a little bit of an embarrassment of riches, which commences for us on April 1, 2016, We've got some of our core franchises, a new Battlefield coming up, a new Mass Effect title coming up, we actually kick off the year with Mirror's Edge Catalyst, which we pushed out of FY 16 and into FY 17, And we also have Mass Effect Andromeda from our BioWare studio. And Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare 2 is shipping in Q4 of this fiscal year, it's important that the company examines its schedule to ensure games don't cannibalize each other, EA looks at the competition and formulates release plans accordingly, it's a high class problem to have.
So next year will be one to watch for, that's all I've got for you today, be sure to follow me for all things gaming and don't forget to comment, you can also find me on facebook.
