What games should be on your radar this month?

The gaming calendar is beginning to heat up as we move into March, and this month sees a number of notable big-name titles that could end up stealing the show in 2018.

Far Cry 5

Release date: 27 March 2018 (Xbox One | PS4 |PC)

The next instalment in the beloved Far Cry series detours away from the tropical islands and exotic foreign locations for a shoot-’em-up tale in middle America. Stranded in Montana alongside some pretty hostile extremists, players need to use their tact and skills to chip away at their maniacal plans, while inciting a resistance from the locals who will help you on your missions. Of course, in typical Far Cry style, you will have access to a ton of vehicles and ways to dispatch of your enemies.

Release date: 31 March 2018 (Xbox One | PS4 |PC)

Killer Instinct studio Iron Galaxy’s upcoming release is a giant-slaying fantasy action game called Extinction. Playing as one of the world’s last Sentinels, you must defend humanity’s cities from rampaging, 10-storey-tall ogres and the armies that trail in their wake. It doesn’t look like much of a fair fight from the get-go, but you’ll have to chop the ogres down to size (literally) by removing their armour and limbs to expose their weak points. It looks like a great combination between a colourful hack-‘n-slash and Shadow of the Colossus, and that’s not a bad thing at all.

Sea of Thieves

Release date: 20 March 2018 (Xbox One|PC)

Coming from legendary developer Rare, Sea of Thieves is an open world multiplayer game which involves running around, sailing, exploring, engaging in naval warfare and working as a five-man pirate team. But while the ultimate goal is to become the best pirate on the seas, you will need to work closely with your crew, as teamwork is crucial to surviving the threats and challenges that await. It looks to be aiming to capture those Fortnite and Player Unknown’s Battlegrounds players, but who are looking for a little more to do.

A Way Out

Release date: 23 March 2018 (Xbox One | PS4 | PC)

A Way Out, EA’s narrative-driven adventure game from the team behind the acclaimed Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons, is a co-op-only experience where you play one of two men (your buddy taking on the role of the other protagonist) who team-up in order to break out of a maximum security prison. While other co-op games just let you play alongside your partner, this time you’re dependent on them and have to coordinate and strategise in order to plan the ultimate escape.

Release date: 30 March 2018 (Xbox One | PS4 | PC)

Agony is a first-person, survival horror set in hell; so you know it’s going to be pretty brutal. You will begin your journey as a tormented soul within the depths of the fiery underworld without any memories about your past. However, alongside some demonic weapons, you do possess the special ability to control people and demons on your path, giving you the measures to survive. It looks pretty bleak and gory, but it’s undeniably an interesting concept – so we’re excited to see how this one plays out.

Assassin’s Creed: Rogue Remastered

Release date: 20 March 2018 (Xbox One | PS4 | PC)

While the latest instalment in the much-loved AC franchise, Assassin’s Creed: Origins, is a brilliant entry into the series (seriously, it’s really good), one of the most underrated games of the bunch, Assassin’s Creed: Rogue, is arriving on Xbox One and PS4 this month. Originally released in 2014 on Xbox 360, PS3, and PC only, Assassin’s Creed: Rogue offered a unique spin on the whole AC story, putting players in the boots of a Templar on the hunt for assassins. It was a surprisingly polished and enjoyable AC adventure, but was sadly overlooked due to people’s attentions being on Assassin’s Creed: Unity at the time.

Scribblenauts Showdown

Release date: 6 March 2018

The admittedly clever write-to-solve Scribblenauts series has always found itself to be a solitary experience most comfortable on handheld platforms, but the franchise is making its jump to home consoles with Scribblenauts Showdown, taking a party-game twist on the puzzle-adventure formula. Players essentially compete in a variety of different challenges, but the twist is that each player can write and create their own solution (in the form of an item or rule) to give themselves an edge. Need to select an animal to win a hurdle race? Type in ‘cheetah’ (or something else that will work). Need better bait for a fishing challenge? Try a hamburger (fish love hamburgers, right?). It’s all a bit tongue-in-cheek and more about having fun with your imagination that playing with real-world rules.
