While we all love a great, thought-provoking gaming experience, there’s times when we just want something big, loud, and most of all, packed full of explosions.
Here’s five upcoming games that are sure to bring the boom:
Just Cause 3
Rico Rodriguez returns in the third entry into the action-packed Just Cause franchise, and there’s one guarantee: he’s going to blow up a lot of stuff. There’s another totalitarian regime ruling an island, and that’s not going to fly with Rico. The first gameplay trailer has shown us that things are going to heat up pretty quickly when we get into Just Cause 3.
The original Mad Max movies (and the forthcoming Fury Road) are jam-packed with vehicular carnage and massive explosions, and the game is set to bring that to the table. Avalanche Studios have crafted a massive open-world that will allow you to transition from on-foot combat to in-car destruction on-the-fly. Flipping cars, blowing up opponents and punching dudes in the face… what more could you want?
Godzilla: The Game
If the King of Monsters himself isn’t going to cause some explosive chaos, then we don’t know who will. Godzilla: The Game was originally a Japanese release which coincided with last year’s impressive Godzilla movie reboot, but we’re finally getting a taste of the giant reptilian pie this year. It looks clunky, silly, and we can’t wait to play it.
Star Wars: Battlefront
We’ve been waiting a long time for this, and we’re finally going to get the multiplayer madness set in a galaxy far far away once again. The next instalment in the Battlefront series is being developed by Battlefield aces, Dice, who will undoubtedly put the love, care, and bang back into the Star Wars gaming franchise.
Killing Floor 2
If you’re looking for all-out-action and things blowing up, Killing Floor 2 will most likely tick all your boxes. The sequel to the popular horde shooter is set to bring some new grotesque creatures, new levels and some interesting perks, and of course, some epic guns, grenades and melee weapons to kill said baddies with.
