Top 3 Video Game Releases in SA this Week

Game releases this week Oct 24

We take a look at what games are hitting local stores and online retailers this week.

October has been a rousing month for gaming, with the likes of Mafia 3, Gears of War 4, and Battlefield 1 already lighting up our consoles and PCs. However, the month of Halloween isn’t over just yet, and there are a few big releases still coming our way. Here’s our picks for the games releasing this week, 24-28 September 2016:

Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2

Release date: 28 October 2016 (Xbox One, PS4, PC)

Built on the impressive Unreal Engine 4, Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 is looking to be the biggest and best Dragon Ball game to date. The previous Xenoverse was a sizeable game, with around 47 playable characters along with an additional 5 with the DLC. However, at present there are around 68 characters known of in Xenoverse 2 with a total roster closer to 87. What with the addition of more challenging co-operative modes, where you and your friends take on things like Vegeta’s Great Ape form, it’s clear that Xenoverse 2 is going big in terms of its content.

Titanfall 2

Release date: 28 October 2016 (Xbox One, PS4, PC)

Titanfall 2 looks to not only fix, but enhance and round-off the experience that the first game touched on. The sequel will deliver a faster, more balanced multiplayer experience, but most importantly, there will also be a fully-fledged single-player campaign for the game (something that should’ve been there in the first place), which will focus on the relationship between Titans and Pilots. Respawn Entertainment are looking to turn Titanfall from a once-off multiplayer distraction into a fully-realised franchise, and we’re on board.

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim — Special Edition

Release date: 28 October 2016 (Xbox One, PS4, PC)

Winner of more than 200 Game of the Year Awards, the Skyrim Special Edition brings the epic fantasy to life in stunning detail. The Special Edition includes the critically acclaimed game and add-ons with all-new features like remastered art and effects, volumetric god rays, dynamic depth of field, screen-space reflections, and more. Skyrim Special Edition also brings the full power of mods to the PC and Xbox One. New quests, environments, characters, dialogue, armor, weapons and more – with Mods, there are no limits to what you can experience.

Other game releases this week:

  • World of Final Fantasy – 25 October (PS Vita, PS4)
  • Just Dance 2017 – 27 October (Xbox One, PS4, PS3, Xbox 360, Wii U)
