In this video, we’re going to be taking a look at awesome games coming in the spring. Spring is not traditionally known as a gigantic season for big epic games but this year definitely has some titles you should keep an eye on. Let’s get right into this.
Little Nightmares is a horror puzzle platformer where you play as a little girl who has kidnapped and taken to work in The Maw, an underwater resort catering to the whims of the elite. This has potential to be one of the great Unsung games of the year with potential in its art and gameplay direction. Little Nightmares releases on April 28th.
Sniper Ghost Warrior 3
Sniper Ghost Warrior has been a relatively consistent franchise. The games have been ok but nothing amazing. The latest in the franchise, Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 is touted as the first title to feature triple-a production values. Just like several games this generation, it takes a formerly linear franchise and brings it to an open world setting filled with optional content and side plus. Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 has potential to take the franchise to the next level and hopefully it does so when it released on April 25th for pc, ps4 and Xbox one.
Rime is a game that has seen quite a bit of developmental turmoil. Originally, it was to be a ps4 exclusive, however, later was announced to be a multi-platform title. The game itself is a very artistic adventure puzzle game similar to something like The Legend of Zelda Wind Waker, it revolves around a boy who needs to escape an island in a world and you have to solve puzzles on the island in order to escape. The game comes to ps4, Xbox one and pc on May 26th, The Switch releases also planned for the summer.
Dirt 4 is the latest in the rally racing series by Codemasters featuring cross-platform leaderboards, landrush mode stadium trax and buggy racing. And the return of Dirt 3’s joyride mode. It also builds upon the team management system introduced in Dirt rally. Dirt 4 comes to ps4, pc and Xbox one on June 9th.
Yooka Laylee is a Kickstarter game being developed by Platonic Games a team that includes numbers of the staff that worked on Banjo Kazooie. Yooka Laylee can be seen as a spiritual successor to that game. You play as a male chameleon Yuka and a female bat named Laylee, the former being sensible while the latter is a little off the wall. Visually, the game looks great and the gameplay design is to throw back to the great platformers of yesteryear. Yooka Laylee comes April 11th to ps4, pc and Xbox one and The Switch version will be coming later in the year.
