Awesome Single Player Games of 2018

A lot of people say that single player games are dead.  But, I have to agree, especially with the number of single player games coming out in 2018.  If anything, there is an increase, rather than a decrease of single player games!  If you’re one of those people that don’t necessarily enjoy multiplayer and you would rather play alone or in co-op with your friends, rather than some stranger you just met 2 seconds ago, these are the single player games of 2018 you definitely want to check out.

Below, you will find a summary of the game, what it’s available on and of course purchase links if you want to buy it or do a pre-order!

God of War 4
Single Player Games of 2018
(Early 2018 – PS4)

While the first seven games were loosely based on Greek mythology, this new installment will be based on Norse mythology. Barlog explained the transition: “it’s kind of this BC-AD change over kind of thing. We’re moving and starting from zero and kind of moving forward on that.”Before settling on Norse mythology, Egyptian mythology was also considered.

Barlog said that half of the team was for it, but since “there’s a lot more about civilization – it’s less isolated, less barren”, they decided on the Norse setting because they wanted the focus to stay on Kratos: “Having too much around distracts from that central theme of a stranger in a strange land.” In explaining why Kratos is now in the Norse world, Barlog said that different cultures’ belief systems coexisted, but they were “separated by geography”, suggesting that Kratos traveled from Greece to Norway (Scandinavia) after the conclusion of God of War III. Barlog also confirmed that this game predates the Vikings; it is the time in which their gods walked the Earth. Throughout the game, players will be able to visit some of the nine realms of Norse mythology.


Vampyr

(Spring 2018 – PS4, Xbox One, PC)

The plot relates how Jonathan Reid, a doctor who has turned into a vampire, comes to terms with his undead condition as he is torn between the Hippocratic Oath and his newfound bloodthirsty nature. The player is under no obligation to kill to finish the game. Dialogue options can be used for hunting prey to feed on, which replenishes strength and levels up the lead character.

Weapons and supernatural abilities are employed while combatting enemies. London serves as a fictionalized semi-open world composed of four districts, which can all be destroyed based on the player’s actions.
