Titanfall

  • Release date: March 14 (Xbox 360 – March 28)

The visionaries at Respawn have drawn inspiration from their proven experience in first-person action gaming, and are building on that pedigree by taking a new approach to game design and creating an all-new universe with Titanfall.

The game is entirely multiplayer, and promises a fresh experience that combines fast-paced multiplayer action with the heroic set piece moments traditionally found in a campaign mode. Set in a distant frontier torn apart by war, players will have the freedom to switch between fighting as elite assault Pilots or agile, heavily armoured, 24-foot tall Titans.

  • Platforms: Nintendo 3DS

Yoshi’s New Island is the first instalment in this series since Yoshi’s Island DS was released in 2006. Yoshi’s good old Flutter Jump, Ground Pound, and egg-throwing return, along with new abilities and challenges that take advantage of the features of the Nintendo 3DS.

A wide range of threats will prey on human senses and phobias – auditory hallucinations, vertigo, acrophobia, etc.The game also boasts more intricate customization options for weapons and armour tailoring to player style. The multiplayer has also been updated for improved online interaction, cooperative, and competitive play.

Final Fantasy X HD and X-2 HD

  • Release date: March 18
  • Platforms: PlayStation 3, PSVita

In ages past, the world of Spira experienced a golden age of perfection, brought about by an advanced civilisation through the use of wondrous machinery called machina. However, around one thousand years before the present day, a colossal menace known only as ‘Sin’ appeared and sundered all before it. Though a line of summoners have since laid Sin low many times, it inevitably returns in an unending cycle of destruction.

Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes

  • Release date: March 18
  • Platforms: Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4

Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes acts as a prologue to Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. It takes place one year after the events of Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker.

Assuming control of the legendary Snake (a.k.a. Big Boss), players are charged with the infiltration of Camp Omega where both Paz and Chico are held. The hostages hold key information concerning Snake and his private military organisation, that Snake and his ally Kaz Miller must prevent from being exposed.

Ground Zeroes charts the rescue and the subsequent fallout that leads into the beginning of the The Phantom Pain. Ground Zeroes also acts as a bridge between previous Metal Gear Solid titles, easing players into the vaunted open world of MGS V.

inFAMOUS: Second Son

  • Release date: March 21
  • Platform: PlayStation 4

Delsin Rowe is the star of inFAMOUS Second Son, and you probably know someone like him… A 24 year-old who is absolutely convinced he’s destined for greatness; though so far that greatness has managed to elude him.

He grew up just outside Seattle, where his great – if accidental – calling comes crashing into his life. As you play Second Son, you’ll explore lots of Seattle’s familiar landmarks. As with all games in this series, the path that the gameplay and story takes will depend on the decisions you make along the way. And, of course, we are creating all these characters and locations at a remarkable level of detail – made possible by PlayStation 4.

Diablo III Reaper of Souls

  • Release date: March 25
  • Platform: PC, MAC

The defeat of Diablo, Lord of Terror, should have given rise to an age of hope. Instead, it has drawn out a shadowy being of immense power, whose malevolent purpose is yet to be revealed. Diablo III: Reaper of Souls, the upcoming expansion to Diablo III, opens a dark and terrifying new chapter in the ongoing conflict over the mortal realm of Sanctuary.

Malthael, the fallen Archangel of Wisdom, vanished after the events depicted at the end of Diablo II: Lord of Destruction. In Reaper of Souls, he returns as the Angel of Death and seizes the Black Soulstone, which contains the essence of the Prime Evil. It now falls to the players to track down Malthael and stop him before he unleashes irreversible havoc on the world.
