Our Most Anticipated PC Games Of 2018

2017 was an amazing year on PC, giving us titles like PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, Divinity: Original Sin 2, and more. PC titles can come out of nowhere, with early access titles, open betas, closed betas, and all manner of games in some sort of development "launching" years before an official release date. That said, here are some of the titles we know - or in some cases, simply expect - to be hitting in 2018. As anything can happen along the way, expect some hidden gems to come out of nowhere, as games like Undertale have done in past years.

13. GTFORelease: 2018

GTFO looks like the horrific mutant lovechild of Left 4 Dead and Alien, and we couldn't be more excited. The sci-fi co-op shooter tasks a four-player team of scavengers with exploring an underground complex for precious artifacts – but you must fight your way through an army of alien monstrosities if you actually want to cash them in. GTFO is the latest project from Payday designer Ulf Andersson, and sports an equal focus on teamwork. An A.I. "Expedition Director" also promises to deliver plenty of replayability via "procedural gameplay scenarios," which could make GTFO a dream (or nightmare?) come true for co-op fans.

Our Favorite, Craziest Moments In Monster Hunter: World

Monster Hunter: World is a game that excels when it comes to delivering frantic, pulse-pounding moments, where your back is against the wall and you're running low on supplies as a giant beast looms over you. It's also a game with an immense amount of levity and bouncy humor. We spent countless hours delving into  Monster Hunter: World's zany world, tracking beasts and getting lost in gorgeous (and sometimes disgusting) environments.

Here are our favorite moments from our time with the game.

Even in the fanged, venomous world of Monster Hunter, the so-called Radobaan is a particularly dangerous beast. Imagine, if you will, a giant ball the size of a three-story apartment and as hard as a military grade bunker. Okay, now make that ball capable of moving as fast as a Lamborghini ripping down an abandoned interstate, its driver unafraid of the law or collateral consequence. Oh, and why not stick giant, deadly spikes all over said ball? Y'know, just for good measure? Why settle for efficient when you can have overkill?

37 Tips For Monster Hunter: World Newcomers

Monster Hunter World has finally arrived onto consoles. Given that this is the series’ first time on a non-portable console in ages, there’s going to be many people coming to the series for the first time. Monster Hunter is a complicated game with a lot of features and systems interacting with one another, and it doesn’t hold your hand. Instead, it drowns you in tutorial windows and then lets you fend for yourself like a proper hunter in the wild. While there’s something to be admired about this design, new players may be intimidated.

Hopefully this guide, put together by the G.I. Monster Hunter: World crew, proves useful to you.

Tips For Going Solo In Monster Hunter: World

While a big part of the fun in Monster Hunter: World stems from playing with friends and random players, syncing up different weapons and playstyles to deliver a deluge of punishment to a massive monster, maybe you don't want to get online or group up at all. Monster Hunter: World can be enjoyed completely by yourself as a single-player game. If you choose to go it alone, you have plenty of different tools available to make the experience manageable. While it's probably not a problem to solo your way through things like Great Jagras and other low tier monsters, when you start getting to Elder Dragons and other high-tier fare you may find yourself seeking an extra edge in the fight. Here are some tips to take with you if you want to tackle the challenges of Monster Hunter: World alone.
