After surviving the ridiculousness of April Fools, we can now take comfort in the fact that everything we read on the internet is true.
Well… probably not, but one guaranteed truth is that April is looking to be a cracking month for gaming. But before we get too excited for the month ahead, here’s what’s arriving this week:
4 April 2017 (PS4, PS3)
The Persona franchise may not be a colossal-name series, but it’s got a hearty following of dedicated fans, and for good reason. Persona 5 is a role-playing game that follows a group of troubled high school students living in a world ruled by corrupted and twisted adults (sounds familiar, right?).
In order to seek freedom, liberation and justice, they live dual lives as rebellious Phantom Thieves of Hearts. Using a mysterious smartphone app, they undertake fantastical adventures by using otherworldly powers to enter the hearts of people in order to re-shape and transform them.
Drawn to Death
4 April 2017 (PS4)
Drawn to Death is a stellar-looking multiplayer action game that throws players into the pages of a high school kid’s note book. David Jaffe (God of War, Twisted Metal) is the creator behind this one, and the hand-drawn art direction gives this shooter/brawler hybrid a heavily stylised look.
The game was originally supposed to be a free-to-play title but has shifted to a normal pay-to-play model, and the launch levels will feature 7 unique maps including Alientown, Bloodbath, Flood, and more.The game also includes 26 weapons at launch and are designed with their own pros and cons to keep matches even. The launch modes include Organ Donor, Classic Deathmatch/Team Deathmatch, Core Deathmatch/Team Core Deathmatch, and Brawl.
