Best PC Games From 2017 You Can Play Even Now – (Launch Date and Videos)

Looking for the best PC games which are released in the second half of 2017, we have a definite list for you of the games that were released in 2017 but are still great to play.

These are some of the biggest titles including the Assassin’s Creed Origin, Need for Speed Payback and Destiny.

Best PC Games From 2017 You Can Play Even Now

So Let’s begin our list of top 12 Best PC Games From 2017 You Can Play Even Now – Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice.

12. Hellblade : Senua’s Sacrifice

  • Developer : Ninja Theory
  • Publisher : Ninja Theory
  • Platform : PC, PS4
  • Release Date : 8 August 2017

Our interest for this game is largely based on how unique its gameplay and development process has been. Almost universally hack and slash combat games draws out during the action to give a approachable view of the chaos, Hellblade does entirely opposite of it by putting a closed shoulder cam throughout combat to convey the real chaos one might face in a one to one Dark souls like fight. It helps that woman protagonist are all the rage right now.

11. XCOM 2 : War of the Chosen

  • Developer : Firaxis Games
  • Publisher : 2K Games
  • Platform : PC, PS4, XB1
  • Release Date : 29th August 2017 

Best PC Games From 2017 You Can Play Even Now – XCOM 2 was among my favorite games in 2016. And this expansion will add the more meat to its already ridiculous re-playability. New Classes, Factions, Enemies, Maps – and a particular Chosen opponent which can even kidnap and interrogate our XCOM operatives for various nefarious reasons. There is nothing NOT to like in here. 

10. South Park : Fractured But Whole

  • Developer : Ubisoft San Francisco
  • Publisher : Ubisoft
  • Platform : PC, PS4, XB1
  • Release Date : 17th October 2017

I don’t mind toilet humour when it is done by genius’ like Trey and Matt. Now with more depth to their gameplay, you can truly believe Fractured But Whole will click on all fronts Stick of Truth already exceeded in. And don’t lie to yourself acknowledging the genius of the games title when you first wrap your head around it.

9. Evil Within 2

  • Developer : Tango Gameworks
  • Publisher : Bethesda Softworks
  • Platform : PC, PS4, XB1
  • Release Date : 13th October, 2017

From the mind of horror master Shinji Mikami comes the sequel of an underappreciated gem. The story takes place before the first game and sounds much like first Silent Hill’s plot. Let’s pray Evil Within franchise gets the due fame it deserves this time around.

8. Need for Speed : Payback

  • Developer : Ghost Games
  • Publisher : Electronics Arts
  • Platform : PC, PS4, XB1
  • Release Date : 10th November 2017

Could this be it? After trying to revive NFS to its former glory, EA has tried and failed miserably by adding nothing but backward features and reboot- to cringey FMV. Now toning down NFS back to Hot Pursuit levels can be the solution. But this year might prove unbelievably hard for some race games to survive, because games like Project Cars 2, Forza Motorsport 7 and coming early 2018 – Crew 2 will be fighting for the same spot.

There is no Forza Horizon in the mix or it would had been a lost battle before even starting. And let’s hope EA eased up on ridiculous rubber-banded opponents. All in all, Games does looks pretty as ever.

7. Starwars : Battlefront 2

  • Developer : EA DICE
  • Publisher : Electronics Arts
  • Platform : PC, PS4, XB1
  • Release Date : 17th November 2017

Looks like DICE took the reception of the original Battlefront to the heart, and thus remedied it by including more heroes, No Season Pass, Offline Bot Mode and a special Single Player campaign focused on the story of an untold solider “Inferno Squad”. To be noted that the Single Player campaign is being written by the writer of Spec Ops the Line, Walt Williams.

6. Call of Duty : WW2

  • Developer : Sledgehammer Studios
  • Publisher : Activision
  • Platform : PC, PS4, XB1
  • Release Date : 3rd November 2017

A new social space, more “boots to the ground” approach, no jetpacks, back to World War, a Brothers In Arms esque Single player campaign and as usual frantic multiplayer – because something never changes. COD had never really left its top spot, but there are definite signs of cracks.

Previous Infinite Warfare campaign was surprisingly good for people that bothered to finish it and didn’t jumped right away to play multiplayer. This time, COD is on trial for both – Single Player and Multiplayer.

5. Project Cars 2

  • Developer : Slightly Mad Studios
  • Publisher : Slightly Mad Studios
  • Platform : PC, PS4, XB1
  • Release Date : 22nd September 2017 

It’s a great year for Racing Fans. Developer SMS has vowed to more tightly tune the controller input this time. And they have an impressive roster of 180 + Cars to choose from.

4. Assassins Creed Origins

  • Developer : Ubisoft Montreal
  • Publisher : Ubisoft
  • Platform : PC, Ps4, XB1
  • Release Date : 27th October 2017

Back to where it all started, the Origins of the Assassin and Templar Guild. As from the impression we got from its gameplay and trailer breakdown in our recent article, the new entry seems to be fully drenched in finding a RPG root. It loses what quick iconic stabbing Assassin stealth/action previous games had, to match a comprehensive mano-a-mano battle Withcer style.

3. Wolfenstein 2 : The New Colossus

  • Developer : Machine Games
  • Publisher : Bethesda Softworks
  • Platform : PC, PS4, XB1
  • Release Date :27th October 2017

Wolfenstein opened with a thunderous 8-minute trailer, and already has more story and character than some full-fledged games.

Its dark humour mixed with boomin’ business of Nazi killing makes it a compelling story to be glued to. The story continues from the first game which was excellent on all fronts already. You owe it to yourself to see this full length trailer and be ready to fall in love with killing Nazis – Like you should.


2. Middle Earth : Shadow of War

  • Developer: Monolith Production
  • Publisher: Warner Bros
  • Platform: PC, PS4, XB1
  • Release Date: 10th October 2017

It was collectively yet unanimously decided by thousands of fans that Shadow of Mordor was perhaps the better fun version of Assassins Creed. And with AC taking an entirely different route and Batman (or Batman type combat) is nowhere to be seen, Shadow of War is coming at just the right time.

The expanded Nemesis system is one of the most innovative mechanics in the last decade of gaming easily. Shadow of War simply builds upon an already stellar game and logically have no option but to supersede its prequel in every way.

1. Destiny

  • Developer: Bungie
  • Publisher: Activision
  • Platform: PC, PS4, XB1
  • Release Date: 6th September 2017 (WW), 24th October 2017 (PC) 

This is big. Love it or hate it, Destiny has become one of the pillars in the Gaming Community. When a developer nails the core aspect of what you do – The Shooting – then it’s not hard to understand why even the barebones lackluster hollow vanilla Destiny 1 before expansions even had us in the grips for a very long time.

Their business side may be a little sketchy, but what Bungie excels is in progress and improving on feedback. Destiny 2 coming to PC is more of an event. And we are eager to see what Bungie can do to this Destiny universe once they add an actual story to all this loot grabbing.

Honorable Mentions :

Cuphead: A game whose artstyle speaks for itself had finally got a release date of 29th Sept on PC and XB1.

Age of Empires Remastered / Starcraft Remastered: More like back-from-NeverReallyDead land, these two remasters ensures these legends will remain with us for decades and decades.
