5 Biggest Game Releases in SA this Week

Need for Speed Payback

Here’s what you can expect from this week’s game releases!

This week sees the return of two long-running franchises, along with a port to the Switch which Nintendo gamers should be ecstatic about. Here are our picks for the games releasing 6-10 November 2017:

Need for Speed: Payback

Release date: 10 November (Xbox One, PS4, PC)

The Need for Speed series has been around the block, covering all sorts of themes in recent years, but the veteran racer is coming back to its roots: breaking the law with high-speeds and gorgeous tuned-up vehicles. The latest game arriving this week, Payback, takes a narrative-inspired spin, throwing you into the shoes of a driver looking for revenge. Taking place in the fictional Fortune Valley, players can purchase new cars or rebuild abandoned derelicts, and can customise their vehicles with parts they either win or buy. They can use those rides to participate in races, missions, and activities in single player or multiplayer SpeedLists.

Sonic Forces

Release date: 7 November (Xbox One, PS4, Switch, PC)

Everyone’s favourite anthropomorphic hedgehog returns in the latest instalment of the long running franchise, but this time around, the series is shaking things up with custom characters. For the first time, you can design your own hero to race alongside the blue blur. And depending on which base you choose, your custom hero can use different powers to traverse each level.

Horizon: Zero Dawn — The Frozen Wilds DLC

Release date: 7 November (PS4)

While not a full game per se, The Frozen Wilds expansion for Horizon: Zero Dawn is one of the most anticipated additions to the gaming calendar this week. The Frozen Wilds opens a whole new area to explore in the Horizon world, along with a new story for players to take on. There are also new enemies and discoveries to encounter, adding a whole new layer of depth to the Zero Dawn experience.

Super Lucky’s Tale

Release date: 7 November (Xbox One)

We’ve got a soft-spot for 3D platformers inspired by the yesteryear titles such as Mario 64, Croc, and Crash Bandicoot, and Super Lucky’s Tale looks to be another great entry into that genre. While Super Lucky’s Tale is somewhat of a throwback to the aforementioned 90s classics, it isn’t as difficult or punishing as some of those games can be. Instead, it’s a fun, light-hearted platformer that people from all ages can enjoy. Plus, the visuals are vividly gorgeous!

Release date: 7 November (Switch)

While id Software’s Doom reboot has been out for a while now, it’s arrival on the Nintendo Switch marks a monumental moment, showcasing that Nintendo’s portable console is in fact beginning to deliver on the games-front. Doom harks back to a time where health was scarce, bullets were aplenty, and enemies pushed you to the limit. Doom isn’t a revolutionary entry into the franchise, but rather a love-letter to old-school Doom fans to remind them of a video game generation gone by, albeit with a new lick of paint.
