As May heads into its final stages, gamers are treated to a returning racing underdog that has proved it has more than enough class to line-up with the big boys of the genre, while a new third-person shooter IP joins the ranks.
Grid 2 (28 May 2013)
A sequel to arguably one of the best racing games in recent years, Racedriver: Grid, is racing into stores this week.
Codemasters will be bringing Grid 2 to Xbox 360, PS3 and PC, and with it, deliver the fast-paced and high-quality racing that you can expect from the Codies team.
Using the EGO Game Technology Platform, GRID 2 aims to bring a new level of realism to AI, damage, visuals and their acclaimed “rewind feature”, which has been used in many other racers today.
The sequel will feature a single-player career mode, split-screen and online components, along with deep customisation options.

Fuse (31 May 2013)
Originally known as Overstrike, Insomniac’s four-person co-op shooter has had a serious overhaul, and is now called Fuse – making its way to gamers this week.
The game follows four CIA agents who each have unique skill sets and (in typical Insomniac fashion) crazy over-the-top weaponry.
Dalton Brooks, Izzy Sinclair, Jacob Kimble, and Naya Deveraux are the only things standing between humanity and a deadly alien energy source called Fuse, which a paramilitary organisation called Raven is trying to get its hands on.
Players will be able to switch from agent to agent to command the upper hand on the battlefield and have access to extraordinary Fuse-powered weapons that can be combined for a devastating effect.
