Destiny 2 will be receiving a second major DLC in the coming months, but until now, we did not know the name. Called "Gods of Mars", the information leaked via the PlayStation Store earlier this year, though it was quickly buried, with the target release said to be "spring 2018". As the name reminds us, the action will be taking place on Mars, something that has been hinted at in game.

We recently awarded our MMO of the year to Final Fantasy XIV, and for good reason. It's been another banner year for Final Fantasy fans and their MMORPG, but it's not the only MMO that had a solid 2017. Sure enough, there weren't many great new games to play in 2017. But we're taking a look at the games we played, in beta and fully launched, and picking our favorites.

Overwatch is a team-based FPS from Blizzard. With stylized graphics and an international group of heroes, Overwatch takes place in an advanced future version of Earth. Overwatch was a task force that came together to restore peace to a world scarred by war. The organization was eventually disbanded, but heroes are still necessary and a select group fights on. Players will create teams of six and battle across environments based in and around some of Earth's most famous locations, including London, the pyramids in Egypt, and more. Battles take place all over the stages, some utilizing heroes' unique powers, and can even take place on a roof, in the air, or on solid ground.
