The upcoming months are packed with some huge-name games, along with some pretty big console announcements, but before the spotlight gets hogged, here’s 5 upcoming and recently released games you really need to know about.
Divinity: Dragon Commander
Divinity: Dragon Commander was featured in our most kickass gaming dragons for having dragons that wear jetpacks… what else do you really need to know to take notice??
Just in case dragons with jetpacks are not your thing (weirdo) then Dragon Commander allows you to control a multitude of units for a real-time strategy edge to the game. Think of it as Dragonheart meets Command & Conquer, with jetpacks.
The Cave is the brainchild of Monkey Island and Maniac Mansion creator Ron Gilbert, and Double Fine Productions, the award-winning studio behind Psychonauts and Brütal Legend.
The game is a side-scrolling 2.5D adventure where you’ll have to use the unique abilities of a number of different characters in order to overcome obstacles, foes and to escape the cave.
Resident Evil: Revelations HD
After getting some hands-on time with Resident Evil: Revelations HD, it’s hard not to recommend the handheld-to-console port of one of the strongest titles in the series.
Resident Evil: Revelations returns to the survival horror gameplay of earlier series instalments, with returning elements such as a limited supply of ammunition, and more emphasis on exploration and puzzle solving; and… it’s scary as hell.
Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon
Blood Dragon is a crazy twist on the setting and milieu of Far Cry 3’s tropical location and time, and throws players into an 80’s inspired futuristic sci-fi romp; and its just begging you to take notice.
If colourful settings, weapons, and dinosaurs that shoot lasers out of their eyes are your thing, then Blood Dragon will be your new favourite pastime when it releases in May.
State of Decay
Among the hordes of undead shooters this year, State of Decay looks to be one of the more interesting zombie titles to be heading our way.
The game is an Xbox Live Arcade and PC title, and will throw players into an open-sandbox world, which will dynamically generate content and enemies based on your choices against the ever-increasing zombie threat.
You’ll have to travel around the world, collecting resources and weapons to help fortify your home base, or face becoming one of the undead yourself.
