The year is almost over – some might say it does not have anything but the holiday season to wait for. These “some” couldn’t be more wrong, of course – although there are just a few weeks left of 2014, it still has a series of exciting things in store for us. Among them there are some really exciting games worth waiting for. Here is the short list, with no Aussie Pokies on it, rest assured. Three Games to Look Forward to in 2014
Star Wars: Galactic Defense
Tower defense games have thousands, if not millions of fans all over the world (so do Australian Pokies, but this will be covered in a different article). Galactic Defense will be a new take on a classic gameplay, but this time in the Star Wars universe, for the delight of its fans. Players will have the chance to participate in fierce, but strategic battles against the invading forces, choose sides, and fight on well known locations like Tatooine or Hoth, along with several others known from all the series’ movies, with characters well known from the movies – like Han Solo or Luke Skywalker, but also Darth Vader, plus a TIE fighter or even the Millenium Falcon itself.
Judging by the developer diaries posted by the developer online, the game will offer players – both Star Wars and Tower Defense fans – a unique experience, offering superior graphics, lively gameplay and the original sounds from the movie. The developer of the game is DeNA (pronounced just like DNA), responsible for titles like Final Fantasy: Record Keeper or Dungeons & Dragons: Arena of War. The game is currently under development, but probably at its finishing touches, as it is set to be launched in October 2014.
The Witcher: Battle Arena
Set to be released before the launch of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, Battle Arena will be a free to play mobile MOBA (Multiplayer online battle arena) for iOS and Android users, developed by CD Projekt Red. The game will move away from the usual gameplay in The Witcher, focusing exclusively on the battle itself. It will not have any farming or minions, but will feature ten heroes known from the previous installments of the game, and some lively action to keep you entertained while on the go. When offline, players will have the chance to pick on computer-controlled enemies, while online they will be able to fight up to six real players (even from PCs, as the game promises cross-platform multiplayer games).
If you are excited about the game, you will either have to sign up for the beta test now, or wait for it to be released “soon” – and play some Real Money Pokies while you wait for it. Remember – it will be free to play!
