New Releases – August 2017


Suddenly, games. If you haven’t already played it on PC, Pillars of Eternity comes out this month on PS4 and XBone. Kickstarted a few years ago, it brought us the kind of great Party Based, Real Time With Pause RPG that hadn’t been seen since Dragon Age Origins. It has a decent story and lots of great characters.

Ninja Theory have their next release after a long wait. Hellblade Senua’s Sacrifice looks like its trying to be too deep to be a really great game, but with DmC, they showed they can make a really top-end action game – and whatever else Hellblade might be about, it’s about hitting things over the head with a sword.

Saint’s Row’s Volition dump the gangster part of their games and continues the trend of superpowers, giant guns and overly purple aesthetic with Agents of Mayhem. For good or for bad? we’ll know soon enough.

Also the prelude that no-one asked for comes out towards the end of the month. Life is Strange Before the Storm is being handled by a different studio. It also has none of the supernatural/explainable elements of the original and just goes for straight teen-angst melodrama.
