10 Top Upcoming Games in 2015

There are plenty of upcoming multiplayer games to be excited about. There’s the usual yearly installment of Call of Duty (Black Ops 3), of course, but there are some others to be excited about as well. Some of the games revealed at E3 2015 look incredible, and add those to the games we already knew were on the way and we’ve got an interesting slate of upcoming multiplayer games.

Here are the top 10 upcoming multiplayer games of 2015 & beyond:

Developer: Massive Entertainment
Publisher: Ubisoft
Platforms: Xbox One, PS4, PC
Release Date: TBA 2016

Tom Clancy’s The Division looks like a solid multiplayer game. It’s a large, open-world online RPG in which you play in a post-apocalyptic world ravaged by a deadly virus in the near future. It’s not an MMO, but there’s an emphasis on 4 player co-op, and it can also be played alone in its entirety. It looks to have a great story with truly new-gen graphics and ideas on a large scale, thanks to Ubisoft’s own Snowdrop engine. But, this is Ubisoft, so we’ll see if it actually lives up to the hype (I’m looking at you, Watch_Dogs).

Developer: Ubisoft Montreal
Publisher: Ubisoft
Platforms: Xbox One, PS4, PC
Release Date: TBA 2016

One of the most exciting new game reveals at E3 2015 was Ubisoft’s For Honorwhich puts you and up to three of your friends onto a battlefield as a viking, samurai or knight against another team of 4. It looks to be an incredibly unique concept, and hopefully it’ll pan out nicely.

Developer: ID Software
Publisher: Bethesda
Platforms: Xbox One, PS4, PC
Release Date: Q2 2016

We don’t know much about the Doom multiplayer, except for the fact that it’s on the way. We also know that the original Doom 4 was scrapped because it had multiplayer too similar to Call of Duty. Still, we know it’ll have multiplayer, and hopefully it’ll turn out to be formidable.

Developer: PopCap Games
Publisher: Electronic Arts
Platforms: Xbox One, PS4, PC
Release Date: Q2 2016

Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare was hella fun, so its successor, properly titled Garden Warfare 2will undoubtedly follow suit. New zombies, new weapons and new modes have all been added, and we can’t wait to see more from the upcoming multiplayer game.

Developer: DICE
Publisher: EA
Platforms: Xbox One, PS4, PC
Release Date: November 17, 2015

We have a lot of concerns about Star Wars Battlefrontsince we’ve yet to see an actual match played. Still, we’re excited for the next Star Wars game, and since there’s no single player component, we’re hoping DICE has produced a love-child as opposed to the cash grabs that have become Battlefield. 

Developer: 343 Studios
Publisher: Microsoft Studios
Platforms: Xbox One
Release Date: October 27, 2015

Halo 5: Guardians will have multiplayer that feels more like Call of Duty than it ever has before (at least, if the beta was anything to go by). We’re not sure if that’s a good or a bad thing, but we love all things Halo, and hopefully it turns out to have a beefy online component.

Developer: Treyarch
Publisher: Activision
Platforms: Xbox One, PS4, PC, Xbox 360, PS3
Release Date: November 6, 2015

We were hoping that Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 would bring the franchise back to basics without all of the hoopla that was Advanced Warfare, but unfortunately there are still exosuits of sorts. Still, it’s a new Call of Duty, and most people are highly anticipating it.

Developer: Harmonix
Publisher: Harmonix
Platforms: PS4, Xbox One
Release Date: October 6, 2015

Rock Band was always better than Guitar Hero, at least in my eyes. Rock Band 4 will go up against Guitar Hero Live in the fall, and we have a feeling that Harmonix is going to get the victory.

Developer: Epic Games
Publisher: Epic Games
Platforms: PC, Mac
Release Date: TBA 2015

Fortnite is also a unique concept that will revolve around players scavenging by day and fighting by night with what they’re able to scavenge (which they use to build a fort). The object will be to destroy your opponent’s fort before they can destroy yours.

Developer: Platinum Games
Publisher: Nintendo
Platforms: Wii U
Release Date: Q4 2015

We know nothing about Star Fox Zero’s multiplayer mode just yet, but we have no doubt that it’s going to be awesome.
