A thermonuclear war, a cyberpunk dystopia or the conquest of the universe. The world of video games has put us in all kinds of situations, scenarios and experiences.
Through them we have suffered, laughed and, above all, enjoyed. That is why we have compiled the most important dates that the most important titles hold for us. Who knows, some of the futures may come true and you better be prepared.
Perfect Dark (2023)
The return of the agent Joanna Dark it is just around the corner. Behind the announcement during The Game Awards 2020, The Initiative revealed that it is working on a new adaptation of this universe.
In theory, there are barely a couple of years left to enjoy an intergalactic war between two alien races, with the human species involved in the middle. Wonderful, right?
Watch Dogs Legion (2026)
Ubisoft brought us the third installment of one of its biggest franchises last year. Watch Dogs Legion became one of the most interesting intergenerational titles with which to test our Xbox Series X / S or PS5.
Now the capital of England has become a place where order, law and information traffic prevail. Restrictions on individual and collective freedoms don’t sound very appealing, although being able to hack an ATM does sound much better.
Metro Exodus (2036)
One of the worst possible futures. Metro Exodus takes us to a world in which nuclear wars have ended up burying humanity in subway tunnels.
Russia is the perfect setting to exemplify the reasons for not leaving the underground conduits. Mutant beings of all kinds, merciless hunters and a ruthless cold are the main obstacles that we will encounter.
Detroit Become Human (2038)
¿Human androids that serve and fulfill all our needs? A signature stamped with fire would be the answer of many of us, since we could not worry about many daily tasks thanks to them.
However, Detroit Become Human
The Last of Us Part II (2039)
The recent GOTY. The Last of Us Part II It is one of the most important titles in recent years. Naughty Dog had to face the legacy of his own work and the play was perfect.
For the most clueless: hell. This is how we could define the planet Earth that has been invaded by the cordyceps virus that transforms humans into uncontrolled beasts. You may not even be able to sleep soundly with the marauders lurking.
Crysis 3 (2047)
A New York covered by a gigantic dome due to the invasion of an alien race. Why do all the invasions always happen in this happy city?
Be that as it may, having a cyber suit that endows us with unique abilities sounds good. Crysis 3 It does not augur the best future for the Big Apple, but that suit would surely fit us wonderfully.
Deus Ex (2052)
Nanotechnology, cyberpunk aesthetics and one of the best RPGs in history. Deus Ex it laid the foundations of how to make a title in which to be able to tour a futuristic city, choose different options and decide our future.
Thanks to implants, we could enjoy different body best. Faster, stronger or stealthier; as always in the saga, it’s your decision.
If you think you are the best driving the Seat Ibiza of your parents, dare to mount on an F3600. Few futures occur to me with more emotion than the one presented to us WipeOut
Formula 1, Hamilton, Alonso and company have been left far behind. Here the races are of real vertigo and fly one of those hovercraft sounds wildly appetizing.
Cyberpunk 2077 (2077)
The game of the year; practically, of the decade. Cyberpunk 2077 it has become the talk of all discussions in the community. It is not for less. Millions of players are roaming Night City right now.
CD Projekt always presented the city as the paradigm of cyberpunk vision. Cybernetic implants, people who are more machines than humans and a technology that bathes everything. Sounds interesting, especially if we don’t find any of the damn bugs.
Observer System Redux (2084)
Hacking and invading the minds of suspects is the main task we develop in Observer: System Redux. Bloober Team’s work achieves an excellent set-up for the new generation.
2084 is a world in which your thoughts can be manipulated, the police are private and your memories may not really belong to you. A pretty grim future.
System Shock 2 (2114)
What better than a space station dominated by artificial intelligence and us trying to survive? System Shock 2, Ken Levine’s work inspired a multitude of developers in the future and has become a reference beacon for the industry.
Let’s see, the part of implanting ourselves with cyberpunk elements and developing our skills doesn’t look bad at all; about facing beings from hell and if that, another day.
Alien Isolation (2137)
One of the most terrifying works of recent years. Alien Isolation made us fear the alien more than ever, since the artificial intelligence designed by The Creative Assembly it’s downright awesome.
The aesthetics of the movies Ridley Scott bathe the Sevastopol and it might even be nice if it weren’t for the most disturbing androids we’ve thrown in our faces.
Mass Effect (2183)
Not one, but up to three games make up the original series of Mass Effect. The franchise has suffered a swing with Mass Effect Andromeda, although from BioWare they seem to be putting all the meat on the grill with the next delivery.
While we were controlling Commander Shepard we enjoyed the greatest technological advances that humanity had experienced in its history. It seems like a fair enough future to me.
Fallout 4 (2287)
Yes, touring the Wasteland probably sounds terribly appetizing in the comfort of your living room, but the future it describes Fallout 4 not exactly palatable.
Nuclear bombs have swept the world as you knew it; not only that, now you have to catch up to save your baby. Sometimes you think that it is best if a Deathclaw appears in your way and ends everything.
The Outer Worlds (2355)
Future classic in which the X president of the United States was never assassinated and the space race was only for the better. In The Outer Worlds we will have to unravel the intentions of the corporations that dominate the world.
The comparison is simple: a fallout on another planet. The truth is that I don’t think I will see this future unless I fall into a cryogenization chamber delivering pizza, but I certainly signed it.
Dead Space (2508)
No, no and a thousand times no. I absolutely refuse to ride at USG Ishimura, the mining station in Dead Space. The already extinct Visceral Games He devised one of the most disturbing survival horrors of two generations ago.
Necromorphs are beings lacking intelligence and dominated by their instincts, which are very used to giving hugs with the blades of their hands. The best thing is to send Isaac Clarke to solve this problem, he will know what to do.
It may be that the Helghasts strongly recall a certain dictatorial party, which seems to us enough of an excuse to enter the saga Killzone and kill them. One of Sony’s longest-running franchises, since its premiere in 2004.
If you like strong emotions, you think you are Rambo himself and you were born for war, stay away from this future. You wouldn’t last five minutes, listen to me.
Halo: Infinite (2560)
Discovering the secrets behind an artificial world in the shape of a ring sounds interesting, especially if you are accompanied by a genetically enhanced soldier. It’s like carrying a utility knife with you, solves any problem in Halo: Infinite.
One of the titles that promised to revolutionize the industry scene and stay with us for many years. The truth is that he already has a few accompanying us.
It will be all the fun you want, but the future it poses Destiny nor does it seem to be the one where humanity stands out best. The Solar System has been devastated and we will have to face dozens of extraterrestrial beings to defend the last City on Earth.
Borderlands 3 (2876)
The third numbered installment of the franchise of Gearbox has become an essential of any player’s catalog. In addition, its visual style gives the brand a very powerful identity.
Pandora seems like a quiet planet until you unleash thousands of convicts of their own free will. You will have to get hold of the best weapons possible and smile; the humor of Borderlands 3 it never fails us.
Horizon Zero Dawn (3020)
With Horizon Zero Dawn You can face one of the best graphically exclusives of the generation. Although of course, it is already possible to enjoy the work of Guerrilla Games and PC.
1,000 years in the future. Humanity somehow collapsed and now the world has been populated by robotic animals. Probably, a great future, especially for planet Earth. It was about time we humans let him breathe a little.
