1. Fortnite: Battle Royale


Fortnite is a free to play third-person shooter battle royale game. It gathers together up to 100 unarmed players and drops them onto an island littered with randomly generated guns, ammo, and equipment. From there, players hunt for loot in abandoned buildings, take each other down, and build shelters and towers, all while racing to avoid the circular “storm.” The eye of the storm — where the game takes place — gets smaller as the game goes on, gradually making parts of the island uninhabitable and forcing players into increasingly closer quarters.

Fortnite is one of the biggest games in the world right now.

Fortnite is one of the most popular games in the world right now, currently available on PC, Mac, Xbox One, PS4, and iOS. It supports cross-play, allowing PC gamers to join console and mobile gamers to take on other squads.

The game isn’t available on Android yet but will be soon. In early March, Epic Games announced it will be ready “in a few months.

2. Westworld

Westworld is an upcoming Android game based on HBO’s hit TV series of the same name. You assume the role of a trainee granted access to the official Delos Park Training Simulation (DPTS), developed to help you learn all aspects of park operations and Host maintenance.

Part of the job is to build, optimize, and unlock park locations including Sweetwater, Escalante, and Las Mudas. You also have to manufacture, collect, as well as upgrade over 170 AI hosts and match them with guests to satisfy their desires.

There’s no word on when Westworld will be released, but the game is already listed on the Play Store. Users can pre-register to get notified when it becomes available. The title will be free to play, with in-app purchases available to speed up your progress.

3. Jurassic World Alive

This is an augmented reality (AR) title much like Niantic’s Pokemon GO. It lets you collect and interact with dinosaurs around you. The premise of the game is that you’re a new member of the Dinosaur Protection Group (DPG) on a mission to save these gigantic creatures from a second extinction.

You can track dinosaurs with a drone and collect DNA samples required to level up and create hybrids in your lab. You can also assemble the perfect dinosaur strike team and take on dangerous threats in real-time PvP battles. The game allows you to explore the world around you with location-based technology, discover dinosaurs on a map, earn rewards like in-game currency and battery life for your drone, and much more.

Jurassic World Alive is set to launch on Android this spring, although an exact date isn’t known, though it will probably be out by the time the film Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom releases on June 8.

4. Project Cars GO

Project Cars, a popular racing game released on Xbox One, PS4, and PC, isgetting a mobile spin-off. Called Project Cars GO, it will come with loads of exotic cars and tons of customization options, just like the PC and console version.

Project Cars is known for offering an authentic racing experience, and the mobile version promises just that. The game has sold over two million copies worldwide so far and is one of the best of its kind in my opinion.

 5. Hello Neighbor

Hello Neighbor is a horror game split into three acts. In the first one, you step into the shoes of a child investigating the house of a suspicious neighbor who has something locked in his basement. You have to sneak through the house and figure out what the creepy dude is up to. If he catches you — and he will — you’ll end up back in your house having to start all over again.

6. Assassin’s Creed Rebellion

Developed by Ubisoft, Assassin’s Creed Rebellion is a strategy game with RPG elements. It takes place in Spain, where you control a fortress of the Assassin Brotherhood, leading a team of assassins.

You can build new rooms in the fortress, make new equipment, and even create medicine. You can also team up with more than 40 characters including Ezio, Shao Jun, and Aguilar, train and upgrade them, and send them on missions throughout the country. These missions can get you DNA fragments which can unlock new assassins, resources for better equipment, and more.

The free-to-play title has already soft-launched in a few countries including New Zealand and the Philippines. Unfortunately, there’s no word on when it will be available globally.

7. Oddmar

This platforming game stars a lazy, selfish Viking called Oddmar who is on a mission to burn down a forest. If he fails, he may be kicked out of his tribe. Yikes!

Magic mushrooms give Oddmar special powers.

The game features 24 levels riddled with traps and other obstacles. There are various magic mushrooms available which give Oddmar special powers, allowing him to more easily overcome challenges. The game looks like a lot of fun and has gorgeous graphics. Check it out in the short trailer above.

Oddmar is already available on iOS and has received great reviews so far. It’s not the cheapest game you can get, as it will set you back $5. The price will likely be the same once the title hits Android devices, although this hasn’t been confirmed yet. An exact release date remains a mystery for now.

8. Harry Potter: Wizards Unite

Pokemon Go developer Niantic Labs’s new title is Harry Potter: Wizards Unite. The upcoming AR game is being developed in partnership with Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. Players will “learn spells, explore their real world neighborhoods and cities to discover [and] fight legendary beasts, and team up with others to take down powerful enemies.”

9. The Walking Dead: The Final Season

The fourth and final season of the extremely popular The Walking Dead series will be released sometime this year too. Developer Telltale hasn’t shared a lot of details about the game, but it did mention Clementine will be in the lead role.

The third season — A New Frontier — ended with Clementine going out to look for AJ. In the last season, the story will revolve around what happens when she finds him. According to the developer, players will also be able to shape Clementine’s future by making decisions about who she wants to be, who she wants to be with, and more.

Unfortunately, we don’t know when exactly the game will be released. To learn more about it, check out Telltale’s summer update video above.

10. PayDay: Crime War

Already a popular first-person shooter on PC and consoles, Payday is coming to Android. Payday Crime Waris a multiplayer, team-based PvP title where two teams go head to head. One team takes on the role of criminals trying to perform a robbery. The other team steps into the shoes of a SWAT team trying to prevent the crime.
