Project Cars
Project Cars

There has already been a dearth of decent racing games on the PC platform. Need for Speed Most Wanted 12 was acceptable but need for speed rivals was not able to raise any interest. The same old storyline and gameplay tactics, EA need to come up with something better as they are killing the Need for Speed brand name.

We have lots of hopes from Project Cars as it is made from taking real feedback from gamers and what they would like to see in a racing game, hope the game brings back the old glory days of PC racing when gamer’s used to stay hooked to NFS High Stakes and Porsche Unleashed.

Through the purchase of Tool Packs players could contribute to development in roles including content creation for the game. The Game is projected to represent a realistic driving simulation. What you will find different in the Project Cars Vs a Gran Turismo or a Forza Motorsport, the game allows the player to choose between a variety of different motor-sports paths and grants immediate access to all included tracks and vehicles.

Speed Thrills:  What thrills a Racer is high-speed wheel to wheel drive. If you find your adrenaline pumping as the accelerator go down, wait for the night mode to unleash. The night mode will make you sweat and fixate your eyes on the screen to avoid that one tiny mistake which can cost you, your coveted Number 1 spot.

Total War Attila

The Total War Attila is the current game from the total war series, previous games were Total War Arena and Total Wars Battles Kingdom. The Total War Attila is created by the studio Creative Assembly and is produced by Sega. The Game got released on 17 February 2015 for OSX and Windows PC.

Total War Attila

  • Release Date – 17 February, 2015.
  • Platform – Microsoft Windows & OSX.
  • Developer – Creative Assembly

Total War Attila is more like the older games in the series and focus on strategic management of Kingdom along with winning ruthless battles in the field. The game play is similar to the Rome Total War II where you need to think your moves on the strategic map along with the fighting realistic battles. The game starts in 395 AD and the main character is not in power yet and slowly builds up his army and gain ranks.

The game is thrilling with some of epic battles with real destruction mechanics, excellent graphics. The details to army units and builds is based on the next generation of graphical engine to bring you the best medieval warfare experience.

Mortal Kombat X

  • Release Date – 14 April, 2015.
  • Platform – Microsoft Windows & PS4 and Xbox One.
  • Developer – Creative Assembly
  • Price – $40

The action oriented game is full of blood and bone braking hits by players. The fatalities and brutalities at the end of the round makes the Mortal Kombat X more gory and blood thirsty title compared to any other fighting genre video games.

The game characters like Liu Kang, Jade, Kitana, Kano, Jhonny Cage and Jax are the as interesting as their fighting styles and the fatality and brutalities they can do. The new factions mode in the game is quite interesting where player needs to choose one of the 5 fighting factions and move up the ranks slowly to the glory.

Dark Souls 3

Dark Souls 3 may actually come in the beginning of 2016, though earlier there were new that it may come in December 2015, hence we including it our list.

It is an action role playing horror video game not meant for the faint hearted. The Giant monster shown in the trailer, looks to terrifying to be fought and we hope fans don’t have to fight the lethal creature of the dark. The game looks great with enigmatic sound effects and detailed graphics. The PC Gamers are in for a treat with this next Dark Soul 3 game.

  • Platform – Microsoft Windows & PS4 and Xbox One.

This is PS4 version , by all means PC is going to be better.

If you are missing the skydiving experience, Just Cause 3 is made for you. The player jumps off the plane and lands on a fighter jet opens the cockpit and throw the pilot out, seems like a Tollywood movie. The game is fantastic with great Graphics and game-play, never-ending action involving vehicles, cars, bikes, helicopters, and Airplanes.

The action may seem to be unrealistic but who cares as long as we have fun with some of the bad-ass action moves the game offer to the players. It is one of the most anticipated game and we are waiting for the release to grab a copy for our new build PC.

Batman Arkham Knight

Much talked about and much hyped but sadly the last game from the Batman Series. The game is expected to release on 23-06-2015, students can enjoy the summer holidays and it gives me more reason to take leave from the boring office life to catch up with some action.

Just a few hours back today(16-06-2015) Sony in it’s E3 presentation has revealed a new trailer for the Batman Arkham Knight – the scarecrow the villain, the antagonist plans to destroy the Gotham City and this time around it is not the Batman alone fighting, the real hero is the BatMobile (Batman’s car).

batman arkham knight

  • Release Date – 23 June 2015
  • Platform – Microsoft Windows & PS4 and Xbox One.
  • Developer – Rocksteady and WB
  • Price – 30$

The Gotham City looks great with the night visual effects, the heists are planned and looting brings chaos in the otherwise peaceful city. The Scare Crow plans to take on the GCPD( Gotham City Police Department) and Batman and rule the city and the world with his gang of hooligans.

There are more action packed car chases and Batmobile helps Batman to overcome the fights with the gangs. The Nvidia Gameworks make the PC game graphics and rain effects more natural than they have been ever. Wait for it some more and it is going to be legendary.

Metal Gear Solid 5 The Phantom Pain

The Metal Gear Solid 5 was unviled at the E3 2015 , the game is written , designed , produced and directed by Hideo Kojima. The game is creepy strange and different from what we experience war games like COD or Battlefield. The Big Boss continue to take on the mercenaries in a map which is expected to be huge 200 times larger than the Metal Gear Solid V prequel.

metal gear solid 5 phantom rains

  • Release Date – 15 September 2015
  • Platform – Windows PC
  • Developer – Konami
  • Price – not known

The players will get access to more vehicles, jeeps, tanks and whatnot battle the reins of bad guys. The trailer is melodramatic showing how the big boss became what he is and the battles he has fought and scars he has collected. The game looks good with next generation of graphics and character details, weapons and map destruction are at a whole new level. We are gearing for the Metal Gear Solid 5 Phantom Pain when it goes on sale.

FallOut 4

Fallout 4 was revealed at the E3 2015, by Bethesda in its opening presentation. The Game has a much bigger map and offers a lot more option to players. The game is set post-nuclear war Apocalypse age where the main game character is separated from his family and is fighting for his survival.

Fallout 4

  • Release Date – 10 November 2015
  • Platform – Microsoft Windows & PS4 and Xbox One.
  • Developer – Bethesda Studios

The gameplay looks interesting and graphics details are much improved from the previous titles. The player uses a pip-boy a larger (much large) apple watch type of gadget which feeds him with a lot of information required to progress in the game.

The open world is big and bad than ever before graphics look stunning and the game offers infinite possibilities. Games like Fallout 4 teleport you to a different world where you can enjoy the virtual world and be proud of your achievements.

The Game allows for real-time construction of houses, shelters and holds out for upcoming battles and events. The dog German Shepherd is your best friend in the game and you can control his actions as well. Overall looks fantastic and we expect the game-play is going to be as engaging as it looks.

Assassin’s Creed Syndicate

The game is developed by Ubisoft Cubac team and is supposed to release on 23 October 2015 on PC, PS4, and Xbox One. The Rooks, leap between stagecoaches, run across train rooftops, and steal members from other gangs by being too cool for the school.

The horse carriages and steam engine trains just build up the environment and set the mood for an epic game-play. The carriage chases and pump action guns add more fun to the Assassin’s Creed Syndicate enormous open world.

The Open world looks huge, i mean to say even more gigantic than the AC unity and boy it is extremely detailed, need I say, you will need to make a small investment in buying the GTX 980 Ti to enjoy it fully.

 The Division

Seventh on the list is The Division. The game is set to be released at the end of the year 2015. A devastating pandemic sweeps through New York City, and one by one, basic services fail.

Did they accidentally released the trailer on of the sites even before E3 even, yes they did. The game developers Bethesda were more excited than the audience when the showcased the Dishonored 2 at the first ever press conference at the annual game developers meet @ E3.

Dishonored 2

In the trailer, the Assassin moves to the most mysterious mansion on a mountain, like the harry potter movies with walls moving and strange security measures to protect the owner of the house. The game looks action packed with some similarities to the Assassin’s Creed series.

Need For Speed

It is bad, really bad the illegal street racing is back with the new Need for Speed titles.You can customize the mean machines and race the cops, hit them , burn out rubber and drift in the city streets with heavy traffic.

Rainbow Six Seige

Mix some strategy and timing to gun battles and we have got the Rainbow Six Seize. The trailer showcase some of the epic entrance to hostage situations and breaking mercenary hold outs with well planned and well executed team work and strategy.

Rainbow Seize 6

Using guns is not enough to succeed in the title you will need to use your brain with all cylinders fired up to crack and beat some of the mercenary hold outs.

The immersive graphics, weapons and shields make it so different from the other 3rd person shooters. A worthy game to wait for developed by the epic Ubisoft studios.

Total War : Warhammer

Total War developers Creative Assembly finally decided that they are bored with the same Rome vs rest of the world war and need to do something different this time. May be some of there avid fans like are also bored of fighting as roman troops and beating the hell out of other factions.

Warhammer Total War Brings Mythology to Life

This time they have added new flavor to the game making recipe, they have included the mythological characters who will fight along with the lesser mortal in some of the gigantic epic battles.

I am happy for the sea change they are bringing to the series which was rather becoming monotonous and repetitive. The game is expected to release towards the end of this year on PC. Can’t wait for it any longer.

COD is like Christmas holidays get released every year with some new elements and some old secret sauce which the developers thinks they should change to keep selling more and more COD games.

The game graphics are more advanced will take full advantage of the Direct X 12 which is going to be released with the windows 10 on July 29 2015.

Mad Max

The Mad Max makes the last title on our 30 Best PC Games for 2015. The lawless lands call for strong warriors and there is no place for the weak hearted. Either you kill them or you get killed the game is punishing with gunfights and vehicle combats.

Mad Max PC Game
