Best games you can play this week – robots and racers

This week sees the launch of one of 2016’s most-anticipated titles, along with the return of some familiar faces and introduction of some new heroes.

Here’s our picks for the games releasing this week, 22-26 August:


Deus Ex: Mankind Divided

23 August 2016 (Xbox One, PS4, PC)

Deus Ex: Human Revolution was a breakout hit in 2011, mixing up the monotony of first-person shooters and introducing some clever gameplay mechanics to the world of Deus Ex.

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided sees the same team of creators emboldened by their success and working on an even grander scale, continuing the role-playing story of the consequences of human augmentation with technology.

It’s a robust-looking third-person / first-person hybrid that’s already picking up some favourable reviews, and lovers of shooters and RPGs should be in line for this blockbuster release.


Assetto Corsa

26 August 2016 (Xbox One, PS4)

The racing-sim genre has evolved quite substantially in the last couple years.

Many of the second-rate (if we can call them that) entries onto the track always seem to be pushed aside by the far superior Gran Turismo and Forza series, with each holding a solid grip on different platforms. Assetto Corsa is here to change that.

The hardcore racer made its debut on PC back in December 2014, where it developed a name for itself amongst the racing community for its realistic handling and graphics.

The console versions include over 90 high-performance cars, including the Ferrari LaFerrari, Pagani Zonda R, and Mercedes C9, plus over 20 different track “configurations”, including courses from Silverstone, Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps, Autodromo Nazionale Monza and Nurburgring-Nordschleife.
