May is a month that is jam-packed with exciting releases. From thrilling horror titles to remastered favorites, just about everyone can find a new game to play this month! Here are some of the titles that all of us at GGA can’t wait to get our hands on!
John Wick Hex
Do YOU have what it takes to be the infamous assassin, John Wick? In John Wick Hex, you can put this question to the test. Throughout the game, you’ll travel on a hex-based grid while combating enemies. It’s up to you to control John’s movements, actions, and limited resources. This tactical action thriller feels like a combination of traditional tactics games like XCOM, and the well-received shooter Super Hot. It is time to take down the international criminal mastermind known as Hex. The contract has been drawn, and the High Table is depending on you.
Dungeon of the Endless
The roguelike-tower defense game, Dungeon of the Endless from Amplitude Studios, initially released in October of 2014 for PC, and now it is coming to the Nintendo Switch and the PlayStation 4. Likewise, “Endless” really means endless as players will explore an ever-expanding dungeon and waves upon waves of monsters. This game will always have you asking, ‘What could possibly behind the next door?’.
Dungeon of the Endless will be released on May 15, 2020 for the PS4 and the Nintendo Switch.
Star Wars Episode I: Racer
The 1990s classic Star Wars Episode I: Racer is coming to modern consoles! Based on the podracing sequence from Star Wars: Episode I: The Phantom Menace, the beloved racing game puts *you* behind the controls of your favorite podracers. Speed through methane lakes on Malastare, dodge Tusken Raider assaults on Tatooine, or zoom through anti-gravity tunnels on Oovo IV! This faithful adaptation gives you the same adrenaline-pumping do-or-die thrill as you race to the finish line. In between races, you can work with your pit droid crew to upgrade your podracer to higher speeds and acceleration.
In addition, players can choose between 25 playable racers, many of whom appear in The Phantom Menace: Anakin Skywalker, Sebulba, Ratts Tyrell, and more. And one new feature for Racer is multiplayer, so now you can race against your friends! Start your engines, race well, and you too can hear those five magical words: “It’s a New Lap Record!”
Star Wars Episode I: Racer is now available on the Nintendo Switch, and on May 26, 2020 for the PS4.
Song of Horror Episode 5
The final chapter of the horrifying Song of Horror from Protocol Games is almost here. Titled “The Horror and the Song”, this is the final chance to finally rid ourselves of The Presence and the horrid song that continues to play in our minds. But will we be able to, or will we lose our sanity in the process? The psychological survival horror game has continued to deliver chapter after chapter, and it is sad to see it finally coming to an end.
Song of Horror Episodes one through four are currently available, and Episode 5 will be released on May 28, 2020 for the PC through Steam.
BioShock: The Collection
It’s once again time to return to the Lighthouse, but this time, on the Nintendo Switch! Bioshock: The Collection has finally arrived on the portable platform. Fans can now dive into the dystopias of BioShock, BioShock 2, BioShock Infinite, and all of the DLCs. In addition to remastered graphics and gameplay, the collection features behind-the-scenes interviews, commentary, and more! Whether you’re a long time fan or just getting into the series, we recommend picking up a copy of BioShock: The Collection this month. Would You Kindly?
BioShock: The Collection will be available on May 29, 2020 for the Nintendo Switch.
Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition
After the success of Xenoblade Chronicles II on the Nintendo Switch, it’s no surprise that a remaster of the original Xenoblade Chronicles was in the works. Get ready to jump back into the role of Shulk as you fight with your friends to defeat the Mechon. Together with your team, you’ll fight monsters, mechanical invaders, and more with your sword and powerful chain attacks! Not only are the graphics beautifully remastered, but the music has also been re-recorded and the gameplay has been improved as well. Additionally, the game features a brand-new epilogue titled “Future Connected”, which is set one full year after the events of the main game. The Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition is a must-have for all Xenoblade fans!
