Dirt 4

Release date: 9 June 2017 (Xbox One, PS4, PC)

Codemasters’ latest entry into its off-road racing series skids onto consoles and PCs this week. The Dirt series was previously marketed with the license of the late Colin McRae, and while there have also been spin-offs in the last few years, including 2016’s well-regarded Dirt Rally, this is the first game in the core series since Dirt 3 in 2010. The new game will feature new off-road vehicles and tracks from locales all over the world.

Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series – Episode 2 Under Pressure

Release date: 6 June 2017 (Xbox One, PS4, PC, mobile)

After the first digital episode to Telltale Games’ Guardians of the Galaxy game released last month (and was well-received), the second episode drops this week. Entitled Under Pressure, this second chapter will delve into Rocket Raccoon’s mysterious past while the Guardians examine their mysterious new relic all while under pursuit from their murderous stalker.

In the past, Telltale Games have done a stellar job bringing the likes of The Walking Dead, Game of Thrones, and Batman into concise, episodic video game formats, and their attention to Marvel’s beloved, intergalactic misfits, the Guardians of the Galaxy, is a perfect marriage. The point-and-click inspired game gives fans the chance to play play as and interact with Star-Lord, Drax, Rocket, Groot and Gamora,

Perception is a first-person narrative horror adventure that puts players in the shoes of a young blind woman who must use her extraordinary hearing and razor-sharp wits to solve mysteries and escape a deadly presence.
