After meeting with Sledgehammer’s Michael Condrey at this year’s Gamescom to chat about Call Of Duty: WWII, I was left with a clear impression that this year’s COD is a work of passion. On page 48 we’ve gathered all the facts to date, plus Condrey’s insights and our handson impressions to offer a one-shot overview of just why 2017 is the year to re-embrace the classic shooter franchise.
There was more from Gamescom than COD: WWII too, as I got to spend some time with Monster Hunter: World (p6), Assassin’s Creed Origins (p40), and Star Wars Battlefront II (p32). Plus, gaming legend Yu Suzuki revealed a little more about Shenmue III (p16) in our one-to-one interview.
We’re also in celebration mood this issue as PlayStation VR hits its first birthday. Starting on page 60 we take a look at the year that was, and look forward to the big releases coming to PS VR in the next six months. Virtual success? No, PS VR is now an established reality.
“2017 IS THE YEAR TO RE-EMBRACE THE CLASSIC SHOOTER FRANCHISE.”
