Most gamers would have had this particular week earmarked for months, as The Witcher 3, one of the most anticipated games of the year, hits store shelves, but there are some other titles worth checking out too.
The Witcher 3
(Xbox One, PS4, PC) – 19 May
Easily the biggest release of the month, and quite possibly the year, The Witcher 3 is already getting the praise we expected it to, with some critics calling it ¨one of the best games ever made¨, and the epic fantasy action RPG is set to bring the monumental journey of the legendary monster hunter Geralt of Riviato a climactic close.
The game contains over 200 hours worth of content, as the no-nonsense hero becomes embroiled in the goings on of the mysterious and otherworldly Wild Hunt.
The world of The Witcher 3 will be full of distractions, giving players the chance to race horses, play cards, get into fights, hunt treasure and even join in ancient rituals, and of course, hunt down some grotesque monsters and frightening creatures.
See the incredible launch trailer below and watch the official gameplay trailer here.
(PC) – 21 May
After an initial delay, 90s gamers will be ecstatic to know that Max is back – as Carmageddon lifts itself from the gaming grave for a new generation of vehicular carnage this week.
Funded by an uber-successful Kickstarter campaign, Reincarnation reunites the original developers to bring another driving carpocalypse where pedestrians (and cows) equal points and your opponents are a bunch of crazies in a twisted mix of automotive killing machines. It’s the antidote to racing games, so start up your engines, sharpen your blades, and get ready for the Carmageddon.
Farming Simulator 15
(Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS4, PS3 ) – 19 May
While you can hunt monsters and participate in the most brutal race of video game history this week, what you really (really) want to do is build a farm, and Farming Simulator 15 can give you that dream.
In addition to For instance, farming animals and crops, the newest iteration will introduce forestry, logging and vehicle wash capabilities. There are also now 41 brands in the game including truck manufacturer MAN., along with New Holland as well as Husqvarna.
