5 video games to look out for in April
April’s got some great games on offer for all platforms. Here’s a quick look at a few interesting titles.
Dark Souls III
Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Windows
Dark Souls III is one of the most hotly anticipated releases this month. Following on from the tough-but-fair formula set by previous releases, From Software has outdone themselves in producing a larger world with more exploration, and with beautiful graphics too. Read our preview coverage!
Star Fox Zero
Star Fox Zero seems to have similar gameplay to older games in the series like Star Fox 64, featuring the Arwing ship and shooting at bad guys. The game features unique controls with a cockpit view shown on the gamepad screen, and gyroscope controls to aim.
Hyper Light Drifter
Hyper Light Drifter is a 2D RPG that blends old school Zelda and Diablo with modern graphics similar to Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery. Equipped with an energy sword, the character must search for a cure for his illness. Windows and Mac versions are out now, with Playstation 4 and Xbox One releases will be later this year.
Xbox One, Windows
Quantum Break is a third person shooter with a time-control twist. The protagonist Jack Joyce can stop time, and even reverse the direction of bullets, allowing him to easily escape danger. When it’s not an action game, it’s a puzzle game, with platforming areas that can be traversed with Jack’s time powers.
Ratchet and Clank
The latest Ratchet and Clank game is a reimagining of the first instalment in the series, based on the upcoming film. It’s a 3D platformer game with decent shooting mechanics and memorable characters. The new title features elements from other titles in the series including upgrades and brand new weapons.
