16. Prey 2
Prey 2 veers off in a completely different direction from its predecessor - out goes the walking up and down walls and ceilings, and in comes a futuristic, sci-fi, open world, with you at the helm of a bounty-hunter who has some amazing physical moves. Expect ground-breaking level design, a living, convincing world and a very meaty experience.
17. Prototype 2
Here's another sequel game which takes a different route than its predecessor. Set in a totalitarian future New York, you play Heller, a bad-ass heavily armed mutant with beast-claws for arms and a sense of rage fuelled by the murder of his family. Prototype 2 looks set to deliver a judicious mix of rich storyline and sandbox action - garnished by lashings of comic book-influenced violence. Yum.
18. Resident Evil 6
Not before time, Capcom's much-loved, genre-defining survival horror franchise prepares for its next big outing. Resident Evil 6 will take place in 2013, in a fictional Chinese city called Lanshiang. It takes its cue from versions 4 and 5, in that it will be more action-oriented. We know that Chris Redfield and Leon Kennedy will feature, along with an as-yet unnamed new protagonist. And that the zombies will be able to run and even use weapons. Should be deliciously scary.
