Although May is usually the month when, according to some unwritten tradition, not many games can be expected, this year the situation is somewhat different. This month, a solid number of potentially quality titles await you and which you will be able to enjoy not only this month but throughout the year and beyond.
What exactly are the titles and what kind of game titles await you later this month (some titles were already out at the time of writing), read the rest of this article.
The denizens of Oddworld have long struggled to shed light on Abe’s Exodus after the triumph of their makeover of Abe’s Oddysee. The consequence of that genius is Oddworld: Soulstorm. To be fair, this reissue isn’t just a spruced-up replica of the original 1998 game: the plot is billed as a ’rerun’, based on the Exodus story.
You may now craft valuable objects that you’ll discover strewn around the world, and considering Abe’s friendliness, it’s reasonable to believe that you’ll be able to complete Soulstorm without a single opponent being killed. Those who have previously enjoyed an Oddworld game will almost likely appreciate the ’new’ game, which is set to be released in a few days.
May may have something up its sleeve at the Valheim level. At this point, who knows? Outriders, on the other hand, appears to be a significant release this month at the time of writing. While the ability to sort out baddies with the power of bending time and fire may sound like something potentially amazing for people who enjoy shooting from a third-person perspective, it’s safe to say that the new Steam trial of this shooter with elements of “looting“ isn’t for everyone.
People Can Fly’s new album appears to be the equivalent of watching something you’ve previously seen, but in a lower-quality format. What exactly does that imply? Is it true that Outriders is a poor game? Not necessarily, but you’ve already got experience with similar games. It isn’t groundbreaking or novel, but it doesn’t have to be a bad thing. It depends on how each person interprets it.
NieR Replicant Ver.1.22474487139…
This game, although with an unusual name, is another game that will come out this month. But something needs to be said here. The NieR Replicant version we’re talking about has one thing other games don’t have: an unnecessarily stupid name. Why is that so? The first thing to say is that NieR Replicant version with many numbers in its name is an old game that’s actually a reissue of the original NieR, but more specifically the Japanese version, which had a different protagonist than the one in the original game. But other than a few details in the story of the character that can be played, the two games were mostly the same.
So it’s not that this is going to be very different from the NieR you know from 10 years ago. However, developer ToyLogic has made changes. In addition to expanding several areas and further refining the dialogues, the combat system has also been refined. The development team pointed out that the new combat system is such that in many ways it resembles NieR Automata. It makes sense: it’s a NieR game, which people may have played and loved the most. Time will tell if this reissue will be as successful as the currently mega-popular sequel, NieR: Automata.
Total War: Rome Remastered
Are you a fan of Rome: Total War? If that’s the case, Total War: Rome Remastered is a game you played for hundreds of hours in 2004, but it’s entirely modernized and enhanced. This remaster features updated facilities and ambient effects, as well as 4K support and ultrawide display support. Fans of the game and this genre of games will love it!
While we could bring out all these new features, which are listed on the Steam game page, like a new type of agent or a new tactical map, there’s no need for that. Suffice it to say that Total War: Rome Remastered is a ’new-old’ game, which will definitely appeal to all title fans, who want something new, in a new guise, but yet familiar.
Godstrike is a special game in many ways. The most important thing in the game that you’ll do as you play it, is the fights with the bosses. But in order to do this, you’ll need to prepare in a certain way before each fight. You can equip special skills before the fight, but each preparation will eat up your initial time which you have before each fight.
So, in addition to trying to find a tactical sweet spot during boss bouts, you’ll need to plan ahead of time how much time you’re willing to give up for more powerful attacks. This balancing act may prove to be more challenging than entertaining, but the notion is intriguing enough that many people will play it once it is released.
We Are The Caretakers
This isn’t something you see every day: a video game promoting environmental preservation. Your aim in We Are The Caretakers, a role-playing game for organizing science fiction groups, is to safeguard endangered species and save the earth. You accomplish this by establishing your headquarters on the world map and assembling a crew of ruthless guards capable of stopping nefarious poachers in a struggle akin to XCOM.
Your choices have implications as well: how you handle certain events influences whether others fear you or join you in your pursuit. It’s worth noting that it’s available on Steam as an early access title, so keep that in mind. However, if Heart Shaped Games’ creator succeeds in doing so, it could pose a serious challenge for the game.
R-Type Final 2
If you like games that are side-scroller shooters then you’re in luck: almost 13 years after the last release, the R-Type is back. Many thought that the original R-Type Final would be the last big hurray for the series, but a successful campaign on Kickstarter showed that in the old shoot ‘em up game (a sub-genre of shooter video games which are, as you’re aware, competitive eSports and popular for betting on e.g. Astropay betting sites at Bookmaker-Expert.com) there’s still life.
Developer Granzella Game Studios is trying to attract some new players with a dynamic difficulty system that forgives more those who aren’t so well versed in shooting enemies in a ship moving from left to right.
Don’t Forget Me
In Don’t Forget Me, you play as a person with amnesia named Fran, who started working under the world’s greatest memory manipulation expert. Inspired by games like The Red Strings Club and Her Story, Don’t Forget Me is a mix of classic adventure games and more modern puzzle systems.
