After a decade and a half, we're finally getting a sequel to Vampire the Masquerade: Bloodlines. Similarly a first-person RPG, it'll put you in the shoes of a bloodsucker ready to wreak havoc on mortals and the vampiric alike. We can't wait.

The Elder Scrolls VI

Yep, it's just music and a logo, but doesn't it make the hairs on your arms stand on end like it does ours?

Beyond Good & Evil 2

  • Release date: TBC
  • Xbox One exclusive? No, also on PS4 and PC
  • Publisher: Ubisoft


It's been more than 15 years since the original game, so this sequel has us excited more than most. We still haven't seen much of the gameplay yet, but the CGI effects are quite simply jaw-dropping. What's more, you can have some of your music or artwork included in the game. Find out more at hitrecord.org.

Skull & Bones

  • Release date: TBC
  • Xbox One exclusive? No, also on PS4 and PC
  • Publisher: Ubisoft


If there's a game to starkly contrast the jovial pirates of Sea of Thieves then, well, Ubisoft has hit the nail on the head with Skull & Bones. This multiplayer battle game takes you to the seas where you'll need to play co-operatively with others to sink competitors' ships and abscond with the loot.
