3 Games to Play in May 2015
Each year, thousands of video games are released. Whether they are on mobile devices, home consoles, or handhelds, there are so many that you probably can’t keep up. On top of that, it’s probably pretty difficult to know which ones are worth your time at all; hence this list.
Below are three games that will be released in the month of May. They’re a varied bunch, but all of them have reviewed well/are expected to be brilliant. Read on and see which ones take your interest.
1. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt – May 19, PC, PS4, Xbox One
If you’ve ever watched an episode of Game of Thrones and thought ‘wow, this is brilliant’ then The Witcher 3 will be right up your street. The game follows a witcher named Geralt as he aims to put a stop to a supernatural army named the Wild Hunt.
Typical gameplay in this one includes a lot of exploration (the game is said to be 20% bigger than Skyrim and you’ll have to sail to get to some places), combat with swords and magic, and a “dynamic” day and night system that can change how some enemies fight, such as the werewolf which will gain additional powers during the night of the full moon. Also, as an added bonus, developer CD Projekt RED will be releasing some downloadable content that will make Geralt’s beard grow as he travels.
2. Project CARS – Out Now, PC, PS4 and Xbox One
What makes a brilliant racing game? If you ask most racing fans they’ll tell you ‘realistic graphics’ and ‘handling’ because if virtual cars don’t look like their real-life counterparts, it will yank you out of the experience. Also, who wants to control ugly, stuttering messes?
Project CARS hopes to deliver on both graphics and handling as the game is so attractive that plenty of people have mistaken its gameplay videos for real-life races. The detail is so defined that you can actually see the suspension of a car wobble as it goes over a bumpy bit of road. The game features over 70 drivable cars, 30 unique locations, and 110 different courses for you to race on until your heart’s content.
3. Splatoon – May 29, Wii U
In the shooting game genre you’ve got franchises like Call of Duty and Battlefield which allow us to be virtual soldiers, running about, punching, shooting and missile-ing each other in the face. But what about the younger generation? These games certainly aren’t appropriate for young children which is perhaps why Nintendo is letting them shoot colored ink instead, as per Splatoon’s gameplay.
Splatoon’s selling point is its multiplayer as players control Inklings; characters able to switch between human and squid form. As humans they can shoot ink about the place, trying to cover it in more of their color than the other team, while as squid, players are able to swim through their own color of ink, even up walls. It’s incredibly family friendly, yes, but it looks like it could be a winner when it’s released in a few weeks.
