Source: TechTree ( The Details Modified A Bit) /// The Pics here are quite small in size around 35 Kb each.. so didn't post the thumbnails //// Can't hardly wait for sum of them..... 1)Myst V: End of Ages (Sep 20) Legends never die. Or so we thought until we came across Myst 5: End of Ages. Myst V continues with the saga of restoring the lost empire of the D'ni - a civilization spanning over millennia. Inside a fully immersive 3D environment found in each Myst title, End of Ages projects amazing visual beauty and world element details. Carefully stream-lined and executed elements of adventure, puzzle-solving, storyline and gameplay are the strong points of this final chapter of an epic adventure series. 2)The Suffering: Ties That Bind (Sep 26) Almost about to create a clan following with the runaway success, The Suffering had caused enough stir to grab attention of many action fanatics out there. Surreal Studios have now come out with the sequel - The Suffering: Ties That Bind - to the same. Built on the premises of kicking all horrific arses out there to devour mankind, Torque - the main character makes more than necessary use of moving metal. The distinguishing premise the game offers over other titles, is the facility to start the sequel from exactly where you left off in the first installment. To choose from three different endings, as per your decision, in the first game open up the sequel to altogether special beginnings. This surely sounds interesting given that the first serving was more than you expected. 3)Serious Sam II (Oct 10) What do you get when you unleash kids to use amazing devloping tools - soft or hard? One hell of an entertainer. To get things right, appoint those who understand the basics of the thing. It seems the guys at Croteam didn't grow up and created something that would hamper everybody else's growth. "Seriously" speaking, better watch out for Serious Sam II, the sequel to the hit Serious Sam. Without deviating from the orignal game's concept of "shoot what moves", this installment brings along radically new graphics, newer game-play elements (that includes newer demons and candy bars too), oh and weapons for Sam's main course. This one allows Sam to even drive some Croteam-custom thingamajigs and multiple player cooperative mode to unveil "pain" on our dear friends. 4)Age of Empires III (Oct 18 ) From where Microsoft left off and the 'Generals' took over, another most awaited sequel to the one which started it all, Age of Empires, makes a come back to reclaim its rightful title to the kingdom. Age of Empires III features advanced battle physics, next generation visual detail and unsurpassed realism till date. Positioned as a Eurpean Power exploring, colonizing and conquering the world, campaigns span across three generations. The game includes plenty new concepts such as "Home City", new list of civilisations, units, technologies, and upgrades. 5)Half-Life 2: Aftermath (fall november) Expansion packs, though they add nothing more towards the ever-essential story line, are always fun to go through anyways. Especially they're from from Valve. The last sequel to Half-Life gave enough competition to the existing titles out there, and the expansion pack seems to be all set to finish up the surviving ones. Though not abandoning the story-line altogether, you (Gordon Freeman) and Alyx flee from the doomed City 17 and wreck mayhem on the never before seen creatures which were withheld from destroying the previous city. The best aid you'll ever have or need, Dog, makes his much missed appearance here. The next best thing to really watch from Valve's barns would be Half Life 2: Lost Coast.

Physics engine features a great new feature, always lacked for in the FPS genre, the potential effect of projectile penetration through existing materials scattered in the game. This translates to enhanced player awareness levels of existing material composition and concealment tactics. 8)Quake 4 (Nov 14) With the DOOM 3 engine at its core, the latest sequel to the ever popular Quake should be compelling enough to make you upgrade whatever hardware you're running right now. Fragging the hell out of the Strogg behind, alone or with your earth teammates, hovering on foot or dragging along in tanks, you realise towards the end that if you can't beat 'em, join 'em. In the game after getting captured finally, you as Matthew Kane, an elite member of Rhino Squad and Earth's valiant invasion force, are turned into a marine-turned-Strogg, who alters the outcome of the war. 9)Civilization IV (Nov) For all you simulated strategy fans out there, rejoice as an all time classic gets ready to launch the next of kin.
