Hey zombie and apocalypse lovers! Welcome to the best of the apocalyptic PS4 games section. Here we take a look at the most promising apocalyptic games that have been announced for the PS4. The PS4 hasn't even been released, and we already have plenty of quality apocalyptic adventures to look forward to. Let's immediately go ahead and review our top 3 findings for the PS4.
3 - Everybody's Gone to the Rapture
Everybody's Gone to the Rapture is the smallest of the apocalyptic games presented here, but that doesn't mean that it won't be a great experience. The game aims to deliver on the immersion aspect – just like its predecessor Dear Esther, which makes you explore an abandoned island through only movement and sight – Everybody's Gone to the Rapture lets you play through its apocalyptic scenario multiple times to try to unveil the mystery of how this apocalypse all came to be. The environment sure is intriguing with its rural setting and multiple characters... what exactly so interesting could be found in such a small British town? We'll have to wait until the release of the PS4 and the arrival of Everybody's Gone to the Rapture to the Playstation Store to find out.
2 - Day Z
Day Z takes our second spot because of its current reputation on the PC. By winning “Mod of the year” and “Game of the year” awards on the platform, Day Z aims to make an impact on the PS4 by introducing its scary and cutthroat gameplay to console gamers. In this game, you get to survive through a cold and lonely world where each injury could lead you closer to your death. Each player has its own agenda and navigates through the world with its own incentives. The quality of Day Z is one that’s pretty assured because it’s been tested through its beta on PC as a mod. It can only get better as it comes to the PS4 with better graphics and a nice wrapping as a purchasable game. Day Z is full of potential that could come to life as it gets developed further. We’re witnessing great progress every time we look at the developer’s blog.
1- Human Element
Human Element might be the top apocalyptic game on the PS4, but it still has a very long way to go. The game has been scheduled for 2015. The developers took the gamble of revealing the game's concept way before its release, which could prove to be a double-edged sword, but we're still very excited about it. The game drifts away from most other apocalyptic games by focusing on the "human element" which basically consists of how humans might turn against each other in the case of such an event. Just like Day Z, Human Element involves the accumulation and management of scarce resources and this topic gets even more important as you have to protect your loved ones or work in cooperation with others. The game will offer great freedom as you get to choose your approach towards the apocalyptic situation: going in through action, sneaking in through stealth or using intelligence to make the whole situation go your way. It's still unknown as of how this whole concept will turn out as far as the multiplayer and coop is concerned, but it all sounds very promising. The project is led by Robert Bowling, who moved over from the Call of Duty series.
In conclusion, Human Element takes the first spot because of the big production behind it and who's in the charge of the project, but Day Z is a close second with its already awards-filled resume and unique take on the genre of first-person shooters as a whole. Finally, Everybody's Gone to the Rapture is a special treat that every gamer should get their hands on once it releases to live one of the most unique apocalyptic experiences around.
