As Old Father Time grabs his sickle and prepares to take ailing 2016 around the back of the barn for a big sleep, we’re looking to the future. The mewling pup that goes by the name 2017 will come into the world soon and we must prepare ourselves for its arrival. Here at RPS, our preparations come in the form of this enormous preview feature, which contains details on more than a hundred of the exciting games that are coming our way over the next twelve months. 2016 was a good one – in the world of games at least – but, ever the optimists, we’re hoping next year will be even better.
Two years, man and boy, I’ve been excited about Dreadnought [official site], the giant huge spaceship battle game from Spec Ops: The Line devs Yager. Haven’t heard much about it for around year though, and now that I look again there seem to be two other developers in the mix (with one Greybox now seeming to be frontman) and a torrent of mildly alarming in-game payment options. However, it is about to enter a closed beta, which you can pay to get into if you so wish, so soon we’ll finally know if that old dream of Megaships At War can really come true.
