7. Far Cry 3
A lush jungle setting beckons seductively for the third time - but the next version of Ubisoft's survival shooter looks set to have a much more over-the-top, in-your-face storyline than its predecessors. Although, thankfully, the game's free-form, open-world approach will be present and correct. Far Cry 3 looks fantastic, and promises to be by far the most sophisticated iteration of the franchise.
8. FIFA 13
This year's instalment of FIFA's hardy perennial football franchise hasn't yet received a public airing, but the all-conquering franchise has been on a major roll in recent years, firmly establishing itself as top dog, so we can't wait to get our mitts on it. You'll have to watch this space for news on new features and the like.
9. Ghost Recon: Future Soldier
Ubisoft's stunningly realistic, squad-based shooter takes place in a gratifyingly diverse range of settings, including South America, Zambia and a Russian forest, and boasts the sort of ridiculously high-tech military gear we've come to expect, including a devastating (and deeply satisfying) sniper rifle whose bullets can home in on enemies and tiny, intel-collecting drones. Stealth missions and massive firefights mix up Future Soldier's gameplay, and you can expect co-op and multiplayer modes galore.
