Top 5 Upcoming Windows 10 Games That Look As Good As Your Favorite Console Games

By on

The Windows 10 Store App will no longer only serve casual games as Microsoft announced that they will be including console quality games ?over time? with the likes of Rise of The Tomb Raider.

The best games that the app store currently offers are mobile games such as Asphalt, Hitman GO, and Halo: Spartan Strike.

Here are the top 5 upcoming Windows 10 games that you can look forward to:

Gears of War: Ultimate Edition

Gears of War: Ultimate Edition is a remaster of the original Gears of War game, meaning the graphics have been improved to fit our taste for next gen gaming by bringing us a full 60 FPS on dedicated servers alongside a Dolby 7.1 surround sound support.

If you don?t know Gears of War, basically it?s the game which popularized the 3rd person shooting and cover based mechanic we now seen with the likes of the Uncharted series. Gears of War is a bloody game which involves peppering enemies with gunfire and finishing them off using a chainsaw equipped with your gun.

Wasteland 2

Wasteland 2 is a sequel to their 25 year-old game that was made possible by over 70,000 backers on Kickstarter. The original Wasteland was said to have inspired the Fallout series. Wasteland 2 is a post-apocalyptic RPG that promises over 80,000 of game-time.

Rise of The Tomb Raider

Rise of The Tomb Raider is a sequel to the Tomb Raider reboot and sees Lara Croft in Siberia to uncover its secret.

Killer Instinct


Killer Instinct is a reboot of the 90?s fighting game that focuses on tact reaction and combos.
