April showers bring May’s most anticipated video games. Or at least that is how we see it here at GGA. We know the weather is getting nicer, but we have a list of games that will make you want to stay inside (or at least take your Nintendo Switch outside). From islands packed with blood-sucking vampires to exploring the untold story of one of our favorite characters from Middle-earth, we have a plethora of fun adventures for you to enjoy. Let’s not waste any more time and dive right on in!
Arkane Studios’ Redfall has been on our list since its inception. Who doesn’t love a first-person shooter with spooky vampire enemies and a story worthy of its own TV show? Players will battle their way through a vampire-infested island as they try to make it to the other survivors. Each playable character comes with their own kit, which opens doors for several different playstyles. This also means you can squad up with friends to test what combos can be pulled off. And we all know slaying vampires with friends is always better.
The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom
Nintendo’s biggest game of the year, The Legend of Zelda: Tears of The Kingdom, will also be released this month. It is the sequel to Nintendo’s Switch launch title, continuing Link’s adventures in an open-world Hyrule. This time Link will explore floating islands and soar high in the skies above the vast lands of Hyrule. We feel like this game will be everything fans wanted The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword to be.
The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom releases exclusively on Nintendo Switch on May 12, 2023.
Amnesia: The Bunker
What about a “first-person horror game set in a desolate WW1 Bunker” that doesn’t sound downright amazing to you? This is why Frictional Games’ Amnesia: The Bunker is one of our most anticipated games for May 2023. Players will face oppressing terrors around every corner within every corridor. But you aren’t entirely alone; you have tools and weapons at your disposal to help you stay alive. Just remember to keep the lights on at all costs.
LEGO 2K Drive
Next, we have to talk about LEGO 2k Drive. Welcome to Bricklandia, home of a massive open-world LEGO driving adventure. Race anywhere, play with anyone, build your dream rides and defeat a cast of wild racing rivals for the coveted Sky Trophy. Just from what we have seen in the trailer, the world reminds me of LEGO City Undercover. Our excitement won’t have to build for too long.
Sometimes we just need a puzzle game to help us relax and enjoy the peaceful moments in life. This is where Enhance’s Humanity comes into play. And it isn’t just because we get to play as a lone Shiba Inu commanding a massive, marching crowd to their end goal. And to help shake things up, we have an entire library of user-made levels to explore. Test your metal against your fellow players and create your own puzzles.
Humanity drops on May 16, 2023, for PC through Steam, PS4 and PS5.
The Lord of the Rings: Gollum
The Lord of the Rings: Gollum is an action-adventure game and an epic interactive experience that takes place parallel to the events described in The Fellowship of the Ring. You play as Gollum on his perilous journey and find out how he outwitted the most powerful characters in Middle-earth. This untold story is one we can’t wait to explore and had to be on our list of May’s most anticipated video games.
The Lord of the Rings: Gollum drops on May 25, 2023, for PC through Steam, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S and the Nintendo Switch.
