Keeping track of all the games arriving each week on PC, handhelds, consoles and mobile is no easy track, but don’t worry, I’m here to help. Every week in Five Games I separate the wheat from the chaff and pick five titles you need to play attention to.
We recently freshened up the Five Games format a bit. The Pick of the Week is now listed first, and the rest of the games are filed under headings that will hopefully be more helpful for you. Looking for the latest indie hotness? Check the Steam picks. Want to download something for your Xbox One or PS4 on a Saturday night? Hit up the Console Downloads section. Now, without further ado…
Pick of the Week
Fallout 4: Far Harbor (PC, Xbox One & PS4, May 19)
Thus far Bethesda has kept Fallout 4 fans on a drip feed when it comes to DLC, but they’re about to open the floodgates. In Far Harbor, you team up with your robot detective pal Nick Valentine to search for a woman who’s gone missing on an island populated by rogue synths. Said island is quite large, and comes with its own population of unique characters and a batch of new quests.
Nick Valentine’s detective cases were some of the most entertaining parts of Fallout 4, and Far Harbor looks to be much more atmospheric than the base game. Bethesda has a history of delivering excellent expansions for their RPGs, and it looks like Fallout 4: Far Harbor has a good shot at continuing that tradition.
