GRIP

In­spired by the clas­sic rac­ing se­ries

Rollcage – which blazed a trail with its de­struc­tion-led physics en­gine, facemelt­ingly fast speeds and the abil­ity to drive on the walls and the ceil­ing – GRIP takes those ar­cade prin­ci­ples and sends them hurtling onto Xbox One with all the man­ner of weapons, split-screen mul­ti­player and on­line rac­ing may­hem.

Ocean­hor n 2: Knig hts Of The Lost Realm

GDC 2018 has come and gone, and with it, some brand new trail­ers to get our mouths sali­vat­ing. Finnish stu­dio Corn­fox & Brothers did just that with its shiny new game­play footage from ac­tion-ad­ven­ture ti­tle Oceanhorn 2. While it has been built to run on smart­phones, this isn’t some bud­get port. Its Zelda- es­que mix of plat­form­ing and ex­plo­ration could be one to watch in 2018.

Co de Vein

It might not have the word ‘Souls’ in its name, but Bandai Namco is cer­tainly tak­ing a few in­spi­ra­tions from Hide­taka Miyazaki’s sem­i­nal se­ries with the up­com­ing Souls

like Code Vein. Along­side its ul­tra-tough Lost bosses, you’ll be able to call in other play­ers to as­sist you and your AI-con­trolled Revenant com­pan­ion. Com­mu­ni­ca­tion will use voice com­mands, ges­tures and ‘stamps’.

Ge­n­e­sis Alp ha One

De­vel­oper Ra­di­a­tion Blue’s lat­est has a ran­domised galaxy full of rogue­like ex­plo­ration, ship-build­ing and first-per­son shooter ac­tion. You’ll need to ex­pand your ship and fill it with cloned crew mem­bers, in­clud­ing the power to splice their genomes with alien DNA found on your trav­els. Visit strange new worlds and fight off aliens in this am­bi­tious genre mashup.

OnRush

Hav­ing ce­mented it­self as one of the most ac­com­plished stu­dios for sim­u­lated rac­ing, Code­mas­ters is head­ing back into the world of ar­cade may­hem with the off-road an­tics of OnRush. You’ll be able to take down op­po­nents mid-race and hur­tle into the lead with the de­struc­tive power of boost. Think of it less of a racer and more of a high-speed brawler.

Mu­tant Year Zero : Road To Eden

Fun­com and Bearded Ladies’ new project is go­ing to draw com­par­isons to Fi­raxis’ beloved XCOM se­ries, with its in­tense tac­ti­cal squad game­play, but there’s more to it than that. You can ex­plore a post-apoc­a­lyp­tic world in real time, be­fore en­ter­ing turn-based bat­tles. Party mem­bers can be mu­tated to pro­vide new abil­i­ties – a duck with a sniper rifle, any­one?
