5 Big Game Releases in SA this Week

Here are the games that you can expect this week!

This week sees the return of an RPG veteran, a South African-developed VR title, and some more great gaming adventures.

Here’s our picks of the games releasing 10-14 July 2017.

Final Fantasy 12: The Zodiac Age

Release date: 11 July 2017 (PS4)

Final Fantasy 12: The Zodiac Age is a remaster of 2006’s Final Fantasy 12, albeit with a few tweaks and changes. The PS4 edition of the game will feature the beloved RPG mechanics of the original, but will also include the International Zodiac Job system that was part of the Japan version of the PS2 title. The job system allows a user to assign a role to a character, which provides them with unique skills and stat growth opportunities.

Gorn (Steam Early Access)

Release date: 10 July (PC)

South African-developed first-person combat game, Gorn, arrives on Steam’s Early Access this week. The bombastic melee battle title comes from the team who made the critically-acclaimed BroForce, and utilises VR in an interesting way. The game features a unique, fully physics driven combat engine, that allows you to savagely strike down an infinite supply of poorly-animated opponents with all manner of weapons – from swords, maces, and bows to nunchuks, throwing knives, massive two-handed warhammers or even your blood-soaked bare hands.

Black: The Fall

Release date: 11 July (PC, Xbox One, PS4)

Black: The Fall is an atmospheric side-scrolling puzzle game set-up in a communist dystopian era. Playing as Black, an obedient factory worker, you get one chance to outsmart the oppressive system, but the road to freedom is paved with puzzles, pitfalls and manipulation. A door malfunctions, an opportunity arises. Once out, what will you do to survive?

Hunting Simulator

Release date: 14 July (PC, Xbox One, PS4)

Offering hours of immersion into the open world, Hunting Simulator brings a whole new gaming experience with single player and multiplayer modes, unique game mechanics, a whole ton of hunting areas and hundreds of objectives to hit. The game uses the Unreal 4 Engine to bring to life some of the most well known hunting region such as the mountains of Colorado, the oak forests of France, and the snowy plains of Alaska. Each will be populated by superbly modelled animals brought to life with behaviours from a realistic AI.

Minecraft: Story Mode – Season 2 Episode 1: Hero In Residence

Release date: 11 July (PC, Xbox One, PS4)

After a block-tastic experience through the first season of Telltale’s episodic Minecraft: Story Mode, protagonist Jesse and pals return once more to the cubic world of Minecraft, although, they have some mysterious newcomers who join their journey. As is par for the course with Telltale games, your decisions from season one will be implemented into the new narrative, though Telltale insists that new players will easily be able to dive right in, regardless of whether they experienced the previous season.
