Top 5 Best Upcoming Futuristic Video Games In 2017

2017 is just around the corner and we’re marking down some of our most anticipated video game titles slated to launch within the upcoming year. If you’re a fan of science fiction and what the future may hold for us, then give this list a look over.

5. P.A.M.E.L.A.

P.AM.E.L.A. is a video game currently in development by NVYVE Studios. This particular title is set in a fictional utopian city known as Eden. In this world, mankind strives to become a nation of perfection, though this goal really came at a cost to the people living within Eden.


Players awake from a cryo-sleep in Eden to only find that the world was invested by a bug that has disfigured most of the individuals causing them to act unpredictable and at times hostile. This is an open-world video game where players will have to figure out the story as the explore, gather resources, and adapt to the full day/night cycle present within the game.

4. Prey

At this point, not too much is known about Prey. Originally, the video game was first set to be a sequel to Prey, which had released back in 2006. However, after the game rights were passed around and ultimately canceled, the video game would be picked up as a re-imagining of the first Prey installment by development team Arkane Studios.


From what has been revealed so far, Prey will take place during an alternate United States timeline. President John F. Kennedy had survived his assassination attempt and as a result, Kennedy continued a push into funding the space program. The start of the game campaign will be taking place on Talos I, a space station that has been built during Kennedy’s term and continues to flourish in the year 2032.

3. Horizon Zero Dawn

Horizon Zero Dawn will mark as the first IP developed by Guerrilla Games since their release of Killzone in 2004. This is an action role-playing video game title that is set a thousand years into the future.

Mankind has mysteriously fallen with cities only a shell of a once thriving society. Now only small tribal groups remain with giant predatory mechanical beasts roam the world openly. The plot will revolve around a female hunter named Aloy who sets out on a journey to explore the open world, meet with other tribes, and potentially learn of the reason mankind fell to being with.

2. Mass Effect: Andromeda

The next installment of the Mass Effect franchise will be launching during the second quarter of 2017. From what we know so far, Mass Effect: Andromeda will be taking place hundreds of years after the events of Mass Effect 3.

Set within the Andromeda Galaxy, players take on the role of an N7 Special Forces soldier who is set to be a Pathfinder. These Pathfinders are an operative task force that is in charge of discovering new planets for the Human species to colonize.

1. Cyberpunk 2077

So far we know that the video game will be based in a metropolis area known as Night City in which the inhabitants will communicate in an unknown language. Players will be able to purchase advance translator implants to make out conversations, though depending on how advance the translator is will determine just how well you’ll be able to understand the conversations.


Though the video game can be played in third-person, there will be an option to enjoy the game in a first-person perspective. Likewise, outside of the single-player story, there will apparently be an included multiplayer component to Cyberpunk 2077.
