May’s New Releases: Games
Even though we’re approaching the notoriously slow summer months, the UK games release schedule is still looking pretty great! Check out the new game releases this month below.
Wolfenstein: The Old Blood
This prequel to Wolfenstein: The New Order began life as downloadable content but was eventually transformed to a game in its own right. The Old Blood follows William ‘B.J’ Blazkowicz as he attempts to break into Castle Wolfenstein, before meeting a Nazi archaeologist who’s looking for some evil-unleashing artifacts.
Kirby and the Rainbow Paintbrush
It’s been a tough couple of years for the Wii U, but Nintendo will be hoping Kirby and the Rainbow Paintbrush is the start of a grand comeback. It certainly uses the Wii’s gamepad to good effect, with players drawing on it to guide Kirby through the various levels.
Kirby and the Rainbow Paintbrush has been out for a couple of months overseas already, and reviews have been mixed. That said, this should be worth it for younger gamers and Wii U owners looking for something new.
Originally set for release in November 2014, this sandbox racing game – which sees players take up a career in motorsport, tackling various disciplines from karting to full-on supercar racing – has been delayed numerous times. This time, though, we’re fairly certain it’ll be coming out. And it looks pretty decent too!
This turn-based strategy for the 3DS features the vocal talents of Wil Wheaton as…erm, Abraham Lincoln battling an alien invasion. It looks every bit as wacky as it sounds.
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt
CD Projekt’s RPG series is so popular that President Barack Obama namechecked it in a speech. Here’s hoping Wild Hunt, which follows hero Geralt as he tries to stop a supernatural invasion, matches those lofty standards. Apparently, it’s 20 times bigger than Skyrim, so we’re on the right track.
Farming Simulator ‘15
According to Wikipedia, Farming Simulator is ‘the most widely played realistic farming simulation game’ in the world. Who are we to disagree?
In case you aren’t familiar, Farming Simulator tasks you with running a farm: you’ll have to plant crops, commandeer tractors (there’s over 41 brands to choose from) and run a profitable business. This new version introduces foresty and vehicle washing into the mix. Trust us, it’s worryingly addictive.
It’s not often that Nintendo unveil a game without any of their main characters, so Splatoon is a bit special. It’s a third person shooter in the style of Gears of War, but, true to form, Nintendo have replaced gruff space marines with colourful teenagers and chainsaws with paintball weapons. Oh, and you can turn into a squid too. Yep, this is going to be special.
