5 Big Game Releases in SA this Week

A hard dose of nostalgia!

Jeremy Proome



June is heading to its fateful end, but before we say goodbye to the halfway-mark month, there are a few more releases it has to give this week.

Crash Bandicoot N.Sane Trilogy

Release date: 30 June 2017 (PS4)

Fans have been demanding it for quite some time, and finally Sony has listened. Everyone’s favourite bandicoot is making his return with the Crash Bandicoot: N. Sane Trilogy this week, which is a collection of high-definition remasters of the first three Crash Bandicoot games (Crash Bandicoot, Cortex Strikes Back, and Warped). The trilogy adds new features across all three games , including unified checkpoints, pause menus, and save systems, including both manual and automatic saving, and time trials, which were first introduced in Warped. It also features high-definition 4K resolution and remastered audio.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare standalone release

Release date: 27 June 2017 (PS4)

If the release of the Crash Bandicoot N.Sane Trilogy wasn’t enough nostalgia for you, you can jump back in time to one of Call of Duty‘s finest games with the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered standalone version. Previously only available with Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare special editions, Modern Warfare Remastered features the same story campaign and 16 multiplayer maps as the 2007 original, but with updated visuals in the form of new models, textures, and effects.

Micro Machines: World Series

Release date: 30 June 2017 (PS4, Xbox One, PC)

They’re micro, they’re machines, and they’re back! Micro Machines World Series will retain the manic social game play of the classic series, but will bring a new dimension to the experience with stunning HD visuals – taking you to the much-loved household environments as they’ve never been seen before. As well as the classic game modes like Race and Elimination, Micro Machines World Series introduces a new style of game play to the series: Battle Mode. The all-new Battle Arenas will allow you to wreak mass destruction on a miniature scale against your friends or the AI. Meanwhile, Team Play lets you work together using your vehicles’ unique skills with modes such as ‘King of the Hill’ or ‘Capture the Flag’!

Valkyria Revolution

Release date: 30 June 2017 (PS4, Xbox One, PS Vita)

Unlike the Valkyria Chronicles games, which paired turn-based strategy with some third-person shooting, Valkyria Revolution leans harder on the action, with its array of melee attacks and elemental spells, much like that of the hack-‘n-slash Dynasty Warriors franchise. The flow of the game consists of the player preparing at their base, going to the battlefield to achieve their objectives, and then returning to the base again. The game includes the possibility of permanent death for the characters, but players are able to retry if one of them dies.

The Golf Club 2

Release date: 27 June 2017 (PS4, Xbox One, PC)

The sequel to the popular golfing sim, The Golf Club releases this week. The Golf Club 2 (as it’s aptly named) offers a dynamic, single-player Career mode, infinite hours of interactive golfing with online opponents, a new and improved course creator, cutting-edge swing mechanics, and a host of brand new, lush environments.
