Games you can play this week – space and snow

Rocket Guardians of the Galaxy Telltale

This week sees the introduction of some Marvel heroes onto our consoles and PC, an adventure game 5 years in the making, and an offbeat RPG worth your attention.

Here’s what you need to know about the games releasing 18-21 April 2017.

Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series

Release date: 18 April 2017 (Xbox One, PS4, PC, mobile)

Telltale Games have done a stellar job bringing the likes of The Walking Dead, Game of Thrones, and Batman into concise, episodic video game formats, and their attention now turns to Marvel’s beloved, intergalactic misfits, the Guardians of the Galaxy.

The first episode of the planned five episode series arrives on Xbox One, PS4, and PC this week, and gives fans the chance to play the point-and-click inspired adventure starring Star-Lord, Drax, Rocket, Groot and Gamora, The voice acting appears top-notch in this one, and the fact it ties directly into the overarching Marvel canon is an exciting prospect.

Syberia 3

Release date: 20 April 2017 (Xbox One, PS4, PC, Switch)

If you needed some more old-school feels in the games you’re playing this week, Syberia 3 also acts as a throwback to the adventure and exploration games of yesteryear. The story of American lawyer Kate Walker and the search for the mythical Russian island of Syberia (where the mammoths still live) began in 2002, when Microids released the first chapter of her adventure on PC.

The game, developed by Microids under the direction of Belgian comic artist and game designer Benoît Sokal, received much praise upon its original release. But now the franchise is back. Syberia III begins with Kate Walker found left for dead by a nomadic tribe of snow ostrich farmers. This time the game is in full 3D, so the snow ostriches will really pop, and Inon Zur is doing the soundtrack, so it’ll sound as nice as it looks.
