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 the titles you need to pay 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.
We’re a day late because Monday was a holiday, but now, without further ado…
Pick of the Week
The Witcher III: Blood and Wine (PC, Xbox One & PS4, May 31)
The bloody, bawdy world of The Witcher III returns with its biggest expansion yet. Blood and Wine takes place in the colorful, seemingly untouched fairy tale world of Toussaint, but not all is as it seems on the surface. A monstrous killer is on the loose, and it’s up to Geralt to catch him, and unravel Toussaint’s dark secrets.
According to CD Projekt RED, Toussaint is bigger than any of the individual realms in the base Witcher III game, and Blood and Wine should take players at least 20 hours to play though. Toussaint may be colorful, but Blood and Wine isn’t a tale to be taken lightly.
