Upcoming Games of 2008: Part V

Killzone 2

Platform: PS3
Release Date: April 2008
Well, what do you know; Sony’s 300 LB beast that’s been hiding in the shadows for over two years will finally see the light of day this April. While the game doesn’t look as good as the E3 2005 footage claimed it would, it still looks better than tons of games out there and from the most recent video shown at E3 2007, it looks to be about as intense as a Call of Duty game.


Platform: Xbox360, PS3, PC
Release Date: TBA 2008
Take a bit of Mad Max, add in a dash of Diablo’s RPG style of gameplay, sprinkle over 500,000 weapons and seal the deal with an awesome co-op mode... and you’ll begin to understand what Brothers in Arms’ developer Gearbox Software is working on. And yes, the game will be made using the Unreal 3 engine.

Duke Nukem Forever

Platform: PC
Release Date: 2008?
According to the teaser trailer released by 3D Realms in December 2007, the Duke is still alive and he’s looking pretty decent after being stuck in development hell for over ten years. As of now we have absolutely no info on this game but we’re hoping (and praying) 3D Realms finally deliver the game they’ve been promising us forever (pun intended) this year.
