    We're more than halfway through 2017, but the new games keep on coming. Our guide to the new games of 2017 is broken down by genre, and we've updated it with the most recent release date info we have, for promising indie games on up to the biggest PC series. Of course, with dozens of games hitting Steam every day, we can't hit everything. But this list of new PC games are the ones we think you should keep an eye on.

    Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus

    Release date: October 27, 2017

    Developer: MachineGames

    It’s a game about shooting Nazis, of course. Some people say there are too many games about shooting Nazis, but we say: nope. This sequel to the 2014 reboot sees BJ Blazkowicz taking the fight to the United States, and will feature more ludicrous, unrealistic weaponry compared to its predecessor. MachineGames doesn’t seem to be departing from the relatively linear, narrative focused template it established with The New Order, but the studio has also proven it doesn’t really need to.

    Assassin's Creed: Origins

    Release date: October 27, 2017

    Developer: Ubisoft

    An open secret for months, E3 2017 finally confirmed that Assassin's Creed is headed to Egypt. It also looks to be making the biggest changes to the series formula since it started. There's an RPG-style skill tree, Far Cry-style time and nature systems at work, and a lot more. Ubisoft has (rather symbolically) done away with the icon-strewn mini map. Oh, and you have an eagle companion—a very promising feature for eagle enthusiasts worldwide. This online games best for make you happy.

    Destiny 2

    Release date: October 24, 2017

    Developer: Bungie

    PC's not missing out this time around: Bungie's MMO shooter is making its grand debut on PC this fall with the sequel, which the Destiny faithful are already head over heels for. It's out on September 8 on consoles, but we don't know when it'll hit the PC just yet. As Tim wrote in our hands-on: "I sank an ungodly amount of time into the original, but having played Destiny 2’s first campaign mission and Strike through multiple times, and dabbled in some PvP, there’s absolutely no question in my mind now that the PC version is going to be the definitive one. Yes it sucks that we’re getting it later, and doubly so that we don’t how much later, but if the final version retains the polish we saw today, it’ll be worth the wait."


    Call of Duty: WWII

    Release date: November 3, 2017

    Developer: Sledgehammer Games, Raven Software

    We're going back to World War 2. This Call of Duty's revolutionary introduction? Health packs. The CoD:WWII multiplayer reveal trailer is directed like any other free-camera gameplay montage, but despite masking the real look of it, we do learn a lot: there are paratroopers, objectives like bomb planting and vehicle escorts, and what appear to be bombing and strafing killstreaks. After Sony’s show, we learned a bit more from Activision about how the replacement for create-a-class works, and what sort of weapons to expect. Evan got some hands-on time in, and was pleased to find that the new War Mode brings real change to the series.

    Dusk

    Release date: 2017

    Developer: David Szymanski

    An ode to southern gothic horror and Quake-era FPS design, Dusk is aiming for the low-poly scares and hectic precision shooter action a good chunk of PC gamers grew up on. So far, it’s pitch perfect, throwing chainsaw-wielding maniacs, witches, and all sorts of occult enemies your way in massive levels hiding secrets rooms, weapons, and bosses in every corner.

    CoD WWII was pretty disappointing to say the least

    I really like Assassin's Creed: Origins, probably out of all of them. The Egyptian theme was nice, and the game itself was just epic. All of the other games were pretty impressive as well for 2017.
