After a huge year in gaming it’s now a fresh start with 2013 lying ahead of us. What games should you have your eye on this year?

2013 game releases

In previous years game publishers launched the majority of the big releases towards the end of the year in order to capitalise on the holiday season. This was evident in 2012 with November seeing the floodgates open and triple A titles flooding the shelves. 2013 however, will be different. With the emergance of new Xbox and Playstation consoles on the horizon (end of 2013) a lot of publishers have opted to release games in the first half of the year before the whirlwind of next gen speculation hits the gaming world.

This is good news for us gamers as there are a bunch of awesome games coming out in the next few months that will help you get through the first half of 2013. Here are some of the most exciting releases in the next few months:

  • DMC Devil May Cry (15 Jan)
  • Dead Space 3 ( Feb)
  • Aliens Colonial Marines ( 15 Feb)
  • Crysis 3 (Feb)
  • Tomb Raider ( 5 March)
  • SimCity (8 March)
  • Starcraft II Heart of the Swarm ( 12 March)
  • Star Trek (March)
  • Bioshock Infinite (26 March)
  • Splinter Cell Blacklist (May)
  • The Last of Us ( 7 May)
  • GTA V (TBC)

 

I’m particularly excited about Tomb Raider, Sim City and Crysis 3. Which game are you most looking forward to this year?
