E3 provided us with an almost-overwhelming wave of new game announcements and reveals, so this week is a little quieter on the release side of things. However, there are two notably interesting titles making their way onto physical and digital store shelves this week.
Release date: 23 June 2017 (PS4, Xbox One)
After a short delay, Get Even finally arrives this week. Bandai Namco’s new game is not your normal kind of indie title, but a tense psychological thriller in which nothing is real. Get Even sees you playing as Cole Black, a mercenary and hired gun, who wakes up in a mysterious asylum with no memory. Under the guidance of his anonymous captor, ‘Red’, Black embarks on a form of treatment, facilitated by a unique technology – a headset that allows the user to relive their memories and experience them again in the present. It sounds like an intriguing concept, and if it manages to blend the psychological aspect with some solid shooting mechanics, we could have a sleeper hit on our hands.
Dead by Daylight
Release date: 20 June 2017 (Xbox One, PS4)
Somewhat extremely similar to the recently released Friday the 13th game, Dead by Daylight is a multiplayer (4 v 1) horror game where one player takes on the role of the savage Killer, and the other four players play as Survivors, trying to escape the Killer and avoid being caught, tortured and killed. The Survivors’ goal in each encounter is to escape the Killing Ground without getting caught by the Killer – something that sounds easier than it is, especially when the environment changes every time you play.
