Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3

Little Nightmares

Release date: 28 April 2017 (Xbox One, PS4, PC)

Little Nightmares is one of our most anticipated games of 2017, and for those of you who aren’t familiar with it, you should take notice. This creepy adventure platformer is one of the eeriest and interesting looking games arriving this year, and after some great reception when showed at Gamescom, expectations are high. In the game, players take on the role of Six, a small creature trying to survive a strange and frightening place known as the Maw. Little Nightmares uses puzzles, exploration, stealth and physics-based platforming to immerse the game in one of the most unique looking games in years.

Dragon Quest Heroes II

Release date: 25 April 2017 (PC), 28 April (PS4)

Dragon Quest Heroes II features the same hack-and-slash with unique Dragon Quest flair that made the first game so compelling. Unlike typical Warriors games, Dragon Quest Heroes II implements more RPG elements and more traditional elements from the Dragon Quest series.

Players can visit towns, wander a world map and enter into battle stages like dungeons with random monster encounters. Also new to the sequel is the ability to go online and fight hordes of monsters with up to four other players.

Outlast 2

Release date: 25 April 2017 (Xbox One, PS4, PC)

The follow-up to 2013’s terrifying first-person horror game trades in a derelict psychiatric hospital for the isolated Arizona desert. You play as journalist Blake Langermann, who along with wife Lynn, are investigating the murder of a young pregnant woman. Armed only with your camcorder and unable to defend yourself, you’ll have to run and hide as you unravel the mystery of what happened to Jane Doe.

Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War III

Release date: 27 April 2017 (PC)

Fans of monsters and men going head-to-head will be glad to know that Dawn of War 3 is releasing this month. The PC game — based on Games Workshop’s morbidly violent Warhammer 40K universe of space battles — is being developed by Relic Entertainment, also known for the Company of Heroes series of World War II real-time strategy games. Previous titles in the Dawn of War series were released to general acclaim in 2004 and 2009. Dawn of War 3 features base building and overhead-view strategic deployment of Space Marines, Eldors and Orks as they fight for terrain and for resources. Each race has its own strengths and weaknesses, as well as special abilities. Players can also construct special super units that cause massive damage to regular grunts.
