Call of Duty: WW2
Primed to be possibly the biggest first-person shooter of 2017, Call of Duty WW2 brings us back in time to fight back the Nazis once again. While many have been sceptical Call of Duty releases over the past few years, this 180-degree turn from futuristic warfare back to exciting historical battles has both newbies and veterans pumped.
Fans will be happy to know that in addition to a fully-fledged single player campaign and competitive multiplayer, Nazi Zombies is making a return to this title developed by the Sledgehammer developers.

Middle-Earth: Shadow of War
Middle-Earth: Shadow of War takes a spot on our top PC games coming out in late 2017 firstly because of the first game in the series, Shadow of Mordor, was an action-packed masterpiece. This new adventure sees a return to hack ‘n’ slashing our mortal enemies while going on a quest to help defeat Sauron.
Some of the biggest questions about this game were: Do I still get to play as Talion? And is the Nemesis system still a thing? Well, I have good news for you; the answer to both questions is a big resounding ‘Yes!’ You’ll be back to amassing your unbeatable army in no time in this sequel so be sure to get your preorder in soon.
Dishonored: Death of the Outsider
Many gamers loved the first Dishonored game; just as many were sceptical about Dishonored 2, however, Dishonored: Death of the Outsider is looking to be an interesting twist and turn of events. Even the title hints at the fact you’ll be hunting down an old friend/god from the first game – whether that’s for better or for worse though, that’s for you to decide.
Playing as Billie Lurk from the second game, this one is set just after the second sequel, you can expect a number of references to previous titles throughout. As well as this, we can also expect to see plenty of new powers, weapons, characters, abilities, and challenges to make the game one of the strongest in the series. There’ll be no avoiding this if you’ve already played the previous games as this is will be the finale – which is why it has made our list of top PC games coming out in late 2017.
Like a bit of real football action? Then you’ll be happy to know that FIFA’s yearly release is just around the corner; that is if you’re not already committed to PES 2018… Either way, you won’t want to miss a chance to dominate your friends on the pitch in the biggest sports release of the year.
Being brought out by EA, FIFA 18 boasts improvements to nearly all aspects of previous titles, including; graphical improvements, more accurate physics, and up-to-date player rosters.

South Park: The Fractured But Whole
This is it, the one we’ve been waiting patiently for since the Stick of Truth – that’s right, South Park: The Fractured But Whole (don’t giggle). Turn-based 2D combat, South Park episode style scrolling, and lewd humour return in this hyped sequel that really does have a lot to live up to. Overcoming the gem of a game Stick of Truth was will be no easy feat.
Join Stan, Kyle, Kenny, and Cartman on another adventure where everyone is a superhero or villain. Become your very own super powered character who can lead their faction to victory by either joining Cartman, who leads Coon & Friends, or Mysterion who heads the Freedom Pals faction. Whatever side you choose, you are surely in for some tense fight broken up by well-timed executions of humour we all know and love from South Park; which is why this title made our list of top PC games coming out in late 2017.
