The release schedule for January 2017 is looking good so far; AltChar is here to help you cut through the noise
2017 is here, and there is no better way to kick it off than a look at what January has to offer. Q1 has usually been a bit of a dry-spill in terms of game releases in the past. Lots of publishers have promised to change that this year, and so far the results are a mixed lot. Let's have a look at some of the highlights:
Celestial Breach (January 3rd)
Looks a lot like some old Ace Combat game but with more mulitplayer co-op focus. (Early Access)
Night in the Woods (January 10th)
Platformer adventure with focus on exploration, story and characters.
Rise and Shine (January 13th)
2D puzzle-platformer with highly detailed background artwork and a cartoonish aesthetic.
Siegecraft Commander (January 17th)
Offensive fort and tower construction RTS warfare with some humor in the mix.
Gravity Rush 2 (January 18th)
Long awaited sequel to a PS Vita legend.
Warhammer 40.000: Sanctus Reach (January 19th)
Space Wolf themed turn based strategy. Ork smashing time.
Urban Empire (January 20th)
City management with some added political and historical intricacies.
Resident Evil 7: Biohazard (January 24th)
New Resident Evil, this time with VR in the mix. 'nuff said.
Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3 (January 27th)
Open-world sniping on the Georgian side of the Russian-Georgian border.
Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare Sabotage DLC, PS4 (January 31st)
New maps and zombie/horror stuff for Call of Duty. Delayed PS4 exclusive.
