2. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is a role-playing video game developed by Bethesda Game Studios and published by Bethesda Softworks. It is the fifth installment in The Elder Scrolls action fantasy video game series, following The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion. It is to be released on November 11, 2011 for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

Skyrim is set two-hundred years after the events of Oblivion in the eponymous land of Skyrim. The country has erupted into civil war after the assassination of its King. Concurrently, the god Alduin, which takes the form of a dragon, arises to destroy the world. The player character is perhaps the last living Dovahkiin (Dragonborn), and must fend off Alduin and save Skyrim from certain destruction.

3. Deus Ex: Human Revolution

Deus Ex: Human Revolution (previously Deus Ex 3) will be the third game in the first-person role-playing game Deus Ex series, and a prequel to the original game. It is being developed by Eidos Montreal.

Warren Spector and Harvey Smith, the creative directors behind the first two games, are not attached to the project.

4. Rage

Rage (stylized as RAGE) is a first-person shooter in development by id Software. It will use the company’s new id Tech 5 engine. The game was first shown as a tech demo on June 11, 2007, at Apple’s WWDC,[3] and was officially announced on August 2, 2007, at QuakeCon. On the same day, a trailer for the game was released by Gametrailers.com.

Information available so far indicates that the game takes place in a post-apocalyptic world similar to that of other popular video games such as Fallout. In an interview with GameSpot, designer Tim Willits revealed that the game is set in the near future following the impact of the asteroid 99942 Apophis. Matthew J. Costello, who worked on the plot of Doom 3, is also working on the Rage plot. Influences on the driving and racing gameplay include games such as MotorStorm and Burnout, according to another Willits interview by Shacknews. Players will be able to upgrade their cars with money won from races.

Portal 2 is an upcoming first-person action/puzzle video game, developed by Valve Corporation. It is the sequel to the critically acclaimed 2007 video game Portal and was announced on March 5, 2010, following a week long alternate reality game based on new patches to the original game. Though initially slated for release in the last quarter of 2010, the game was postponed to the week of April 18, 2011. The game will be released by Valve, through both retail and Steam, for Microsoft Windows and Mac OS X; PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions of the game will be distributed by Electronic Arts. All versions of the game will become available simultaneously.

In Portal 2 the player returns as Chell, having been in stasis for several hundred years while GLaDOS and the rest of the Aperture Science facility has fallen into disrepair. Chell is awakened by one of GLaDOS’s personality cores, and inadvertently wakes GLaDOS; GLaDOS is immediately displeased at Chell’s return and begins testing her again through numerous chambers as she rebuilds the dilapidated facility. Portal 2 continues to challenge the player through numerous platforming and physics-based puzzles using the Aperture Science Handheld Portal Device (ASHPD, also dubbed the “portal gun”), a device that can create a temporary wormhole between any two flat surfaces. Other gameplay elements are added to Portal 2 including tractor beams, laser redirection, and special paint-like gels, taken from the Independent Games Festival-winning DigiPen student project Tag: The Power of Paint, that imparts special properties to objects it touches such as increased momentum. Portal 2 also includes a two-player co-operative mode, each player-character a robot that has become self-aware from GLaDOS’ influence, and requires the players to work together with their own portal guns to complete each level.

6. Dragon Age 2

Dragon Age II is the upcoming sequel to the Dragon Age series and is set to be released on March 8, 2011 in North America and March 11, 2011 in Europe. Unlike Dragon Age: Origins, the main character’s race cannot be changed; however, the character’s appearance, gender and class are all fully customizable. Hawke, the main character, is a Lothering refugee who rises to power and becomes the Champion of the Free Marches. Dragon Age II is set in the same world as Dragon Age: Origins, but takes place in the Free Marches.

7. Mass Effect 3

Mass Effect 3 is the upcoming third and final game in the Mass Effect trilogy of video games developed by BioWare, and published by Electronic Arts with a tentative release date of “Holiday 2011″ (referring to the November-January holiday season). The game will be released simultaneously on Microsoft Windows, Xbox 360 and the PlayStation 3.[1]

The game’s director, Casey Hudson, commented that Mass Effect 3 “will be easier [to develop] because we don’t have to worry about continuity into the next one,” and that the game’s development will follow a timeframe similar to that of Mass Effect 2. Decisions will still be imported from the two previous titles to Mass Effect 3, as to keep continuity within the series. Hudson also said in an interview at the Consumer Electronics Show that BioWare is already at work on Mass Effect 3. Mass Effect 3 will complete the story arc of Commander Shepard, and will pull in over 1,000 variables from Mass Effect and Mass Effect 2 to shape how players experience the final chapter.

8. Diablo 3

Diablo III is an upcoming dark fantasy/horror-themed action role-playing game developed by Blizzard, making it the third installment in the Diablo franchise. The game, which features elements of the hack and slash and “dungeon roaming” genres, was first announced on June 28, 2008, at Blizzard’s World Wide Invitational in Paris, France.

9. Dead Space 2

Dead Space 2 is an upcoming survival horror third-person shooter video game developed by Visceral Games and published by Electronic Arts for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Microsoft Windows. It is the sequel to Dead Space. Unlike its predecessor, Dead Space 2 has a multiplayer mode. A Limited Edition will be available for all three platforms, the PlayStation 3 version will include Dead Space: Extraction as a PlayStation Move compatible title.
