This week, have your wallets or credit cards at the ready, as it’s going to be a big one. Sure, you recently picked up PlayStation VR, Battlefield 1, Gears of War 4 and Forza Horizon 3, but the show isn’t over yet. No, no, no! Let’s take a look at some of the highlights of this week’s new releases.
Two of the biggest releases will undoubtedly be the second Titanfall game from Respawn Entertainment. While I still strongly feel this should be an early 2017 release, instead of being stuck between the juggernauts of Battlefield 1 and Call of Duty Infinite Warfare, I have high hopes for this one, as I truly enjoyed the first game in 2014. Skyrim: Special Edition should satisfy a lot of players out there, especially with the addition of mod support on both consoles this time around. Will it be as popular as its first release in 2011 though?
Farming Simulator 17 pulls out of the barn this week too, and while I have spent about 100 hours on the last console release, I’m not too pushed to harvest this one into my collection just yet. Still, for anyone who is curious about the success of these games, give it a go, and enjoy it in co-op with some friends! Great, memorable gameplay!
Dark Souls 3’s DLC, Ashes of Ariandel hits in the middle of the week, offering more content to be consumed by the hardcore community that is the Dark Souls fanbase. Hopefully that goes down a treat for you. I’m not one of them. Never stepped foot into that series, yet.
