Best games you can play this week – cybernetics and spandex

This week sees the release of some big-name titles, including some robotic-infused violence, spandex-clad rivalries, and a VR alien experience worth taking note of.

The Surge

16 May 2017 (PS4, Xbox One, PC)

2014’s Lords of the Fallen was a pretty enjoyable Dark Souls-clone that came quite close to doing something special. Developer Deck 13 Interactive are back with their new game, The Surge, which once again takes some inspiration from the Dark Souls series, but mixes it up with some high-tech exoskeletons.

The Surge is set in the future after plans to stop global warming backfired and the only survivors are outfitted with slick exo-suits. In addition to an interesting and socially-relevant story, the game will feature a “unique limb targeting mechanics’, which allows you to not only highlight weak spots on enemies, but remove items from their armour that you can then use yourself. You’ll then be able to customise your own exo-suit with protective gear and weaponry from fallen foes.

Injustice 2

16 May 2017 (PS4, Xbox One)

NeatherRealm Studios’ superhero fighting game, Injustice, was a smash hit with fans of the genre and DC enthusiasts, and the sequel arrives this week.

Injustice 2 not only picks up the incredibly-interesting alternate timeline story-arc, but it also ups the roster of fighters, throws in new costumes and upgradable gear (which can help players boost their fighters ala RPG-style), and it also delivers some gorgeous visuals to boot. Expect some appearances from Mortal Kombat characters too.
