It's been a non-stop year of great games. But wait, there's more! Here's a look at a trio of upcoming games that have us very excited here at Kidzworld. 

Another Avatar

In a surprising twist, James Cameron's 2009 movie, Avatar, is getting a game developed and published by Ubisoft. If you haven't been keeping up on any of the plans for the Avatar sequels then I'll fill you in that we're getting several more movies. Games based on movies aren't as common as they were 6 or 7 years ago so it's a shock to see an Avatar game being worked on in 2017, keeping in mind that Ubisoft developed an Avatar game to coincide with the original movie in 2009.

In a video that announced the upcoming Avatar game, Ubisoft showed off how seriously they were taking this game's development. Ubisoft's new Avatar will be built on the Snowdrop engine that powered Tom Clancy's The Division, that released early in 2009. Ubisoft is the king of the open world formula so another open world game (even one as odd as Avatar) to add to their roster will probably end up well received.

Run and Hide or Build and Create?

Warner Bros. isn't just a company making movies, they're also pumping out some of the most popular games of the last few years. They've really hit their stride in the LEGO games but they've also published Batman: Arkham KnightThe Witcher 3: Wild Hunt (in North America,) and coming soon Outlast 2.

Outlast was an important horror game, especially to console gamers, and its sequel is one of my most anticipated games of the year. Following a demo released later in 2016, Outlast 2 was hit with a small delay but we've finally gotten our eyes onto a release date of April 25th. But hey, if you weren't able to play the original game or its fantastic DLC, you'll be able to get your hands on a physical copy of Outlast Trinity which includes Outlast, Outlast: Whistleblower, and Outlast 2. The bundle will also release on April 25th to coincide with Outlast 2's release. Heads up, this is a trilogy of very scary games that are Rated M for Mature by the ESRB.

LEGO Worlds is an open world LEGO building game that hopes to separate itself from Minecraft. The game has been in early access on Steam since 2015, but as of March 7th LEGO Worlds is officially on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One -- look forward to our review coming soon. Though we don't have a release date, LEGO Worlds will also come to the Nintendo Switch at some point in 2017.
