Six essential PS4 and Xbox One games still to come in 2014

The nights are drawing in, the skies are getting murky and there’s a chill in the air. Winter’s coming… and we can’t wait. After all, there’s no busier time for the biggest game releases – and 2014 is no exception. This year, we’ve got a whole crop of next-gen titles to look forward to. Here’s our pick of the very best of them…

 

Sunset Overdrive
Release date: 31 October 2014
Platform: Xbox One

Remember the days when videogames were all about pure dumb fun? Po-faced seriousness is more the order of the day for most of today’s realism-obsessed titles…but not Sunset Overdrive. Set in a world crippled by an apocalypse caused by a fizzy energy drink, this over-the-top shooter feels like what would ooze out if you lobbed Infamous, Worms and Ren & Stimpy into a blender. Supercharged parkour-style action, ridiculous weapons and a colour-drenched palette combine for what should be the perfect switch-off-your-brain antidote to gaming’s more cerebral offerings.
