Pretty much want to play most of those games... Especially the space combat and survival horror games. I just hope some make it this year as I have a feeling will be delayed till 2015. Hope not though.

#3 Edited by Horgen (110079 posts) -

I need to bookmark this thread... And find the interesting games on Steam/Origin/Uplay and add to my wish list.

Or just add them to this post:

  • Star Citizen
  • The Vanishing of Ethan Carter
  • The Forest
  • Routine
  • Reset
  • Eden Star
  • Cyberpunk 2077
  • Syberia 3 (Or 2)
  • Mount and Blade 2: Bannerlord
  • Legend of Grimrock 2
  • Asylum
  • Kingdom Come : Deliverance

I think that is all

#15 Posted by LiquidGold (64 posts) -

Great list Cloud, I would literally play nearly everything there, I liked the Satellite Reign, the game syndicate reboot should've been. If you can update your list add in U55- End End Of Line & DarkWood.

Good list bro 5*

I thought U55 was canceled .?

It got a green light on steam so should still be coming, check out Stasis as well, a sci-fi/horror/adventure You can download the alpha from his website, its 1 guy making it alone. Its really good though worth a playthrough.

After being green lit on steam , they headed to kickstarter but due to lack of coverage it was not funded . May be someday they'll come back and will try to fund it through early access like Next Car Game . As for other games I'll check them out , thanks ;-)

Updated old trailer with new one . Looks epic !

#22 Edited by Postosuchus (154 posts) -

Man some of those trailers look really appealing, better get some of my backlog out of the way. Many thanks Cloud Imperium for creating this. A correction(?) and nitpick though: Cyberpunk 2077 is probably not exclusive

http://www.vg247.com/2013/10/12/cyberpunk-2077-most-probably-will-come-to-next-gen-but-theres-nothing-to-announce-yet-says-cdp/

and Divinity Original Sin and Might and Magic are better classified as turn-based RPGS, not action.

Edit: somehow missed your disclaimer about what qualifies as exclusive. Nevermind about Cyberpunk in that case.

#23 Posted by nutcrackr (12554 posts) -

Age of Wonders 3?

#24 Posted by Cloud_imperium (2995 posts) -

Will add that as well :-)

Yep . Sadly websites like gamespot doesn't cover games like these and only deal with articles related to Titanfall and Xbox VS PS4 for click baits .

Yeah, but that's the reality. I don't see it as sad. PC has games that appeal to a great number of niches, which makes it very unique and very appealing to some people, but the games and genres stay niche and don't get the coverage that big (console) games get.

And in the end PC wins I think because it gets big games like Titanfall and Watch Dogs which get lots of coverage and very small, niche games.

Console games also get more coverage because they are fewer and more far between. Lots of hype is build up around them i.e. Halo or Infamous because they need to sell systems. The companies behind those games spend a lot of money on marketing and getting in the press. Money that a lot of PC developers don't have, or that they want to spend on other aspects.

But PC does have a great community of people that are willing to put time into threads like these to inform eachother what games are coming out :)

#37 Posted by stizzal13 (602 posts) -

Wow, I was pleasantly surprised by the list. It looks like there are some really good games on it. Given my backlog, I should be playing these games sometime in 2017. lol

#38 Posted by pelvist (4736 posts) -

A couple of games I saw at EGX this weekend that are worth mentioning:

Monstrum: A first person horror game that is set for release late Q3 2014. Players find themselves on an abandoned ship that was built in the 70s and have to locate resources to help evade the monsters that hunt you and fix up an escape route. The game features a procedurally generated maze like environment and can be played with or without the Oculus Rift.

Dream: Currently in early access on Steam, an atmospheric exploration game filled with puzzles and secrets. You play as Howard Phillips, a graduate who gains an obsession with dreams only to confront mislaid concerns in the form of nightmares. This game can also be played with or without the Oculus Rift. I have 33% discount codes for Dream, so anyone who is interested just PM me for one. (Valid till 6th April).

Cyberpunk 2077 is not a PC exclusive. atleast they already told back in 2012 that it's planned for both next-gen consoles.

also not many of these are "big" titles, but more like indie. looking very good, nevertheless.

#40 Posted by Sleepyz (3778 posts) -

7 days to die and the dead linger are promising exploration/crafting games in early access on Steam. Craft the world, Starbound, space engineers, planet explorers are also early access and are pretty good already.

Just in case wanted to add to list.

1.

Thread description :

"Note : Games are named PC exclusive based on Official announcements from developers so far , everything can change in the future ."

CDPR Announcement :

http://www.gamespot.com/articles/cyberpunk-2077-probably-coming-to-ps4-xbox-one/1100-6415559/

"It most probably will be," he said. "But we can't confirm or deny because it's too early for that."

2.

Depends on opinion : For me a game with full voice acting , soundtrack , great visuals and gameplay (Like most of these games) are more AAA than mainstream press A to win interactive movies/garbage .

All those games suck. Will maybe get one or two from the bargain bin in six months.

(somebody had to say it, right?)

#45 Posted by persuader9799 (6 posts) -

@Cloud_imperium: there are at least 4 games on that list that are going to be on other devices EVE Valkyrie on ps4 using Morpheus, kingdom come deliverance on ps4 and probably Xbox one, among the sleep also on ps4, and broken sword 5 on ps vita.

#46 Posted by Coseniath (866 posts) -

@Cloud_imperium Great work m8!

@horgen can we sticky this? It would be nice to have a thread with upcoming releases/exclusives for PC, at least for this and the next year. :)

#47 Edited by geniobastardo (1294 posts) -

@Cloud_imperium awesome work dude. My hand never ached this much.

There are a lot of good games coming to PC this year. I just wanna play'em all except for the MOBA's.

Ghost of a Tale has piqued my interest. Also Eve Valkyrie, Star Citizen, Syberia 3, CyberPunk 2077, Eden Star and The Forest looks great. I'll sure keep an eye out for them (if just an eye is enough, curse these big gaming sites!)

PC - the platform where the indie developers can make all the simulators and horrors they want. It's like nothing else comes out these days as a PC exclusive. Only a handful of those are actually something different that is of non-inferior quality at the same time.
