This week gives us the biggest release of the month in the form of the anticipated Hitman 3. It marks both a beginning and an end – it’s the trilogy’s grand finale, and also a fresh hassle/publisher free start for developer IO Interactive.
As well as a darker tone it also features PSVR support. The Switch isn’t left out either with the cloud version due the same day as the PlayStation, Xbox and PC iterations.
The arcade-like Redout: Space Assault should please fans of Star Fox and Starlink, offering similar sci-fi space battles. Failing that, there’s Skycadia…which genuinely resembles Star Fox. The original Star Fox, no less – it mimics the look and feel of early ‘90s 3D shooters.
Two-wheeled racer Ride 4 also gets its next-gen update. Other new indies, meanwhile, include 2D arena shooter Gravity Heroes (demo available), ninja brawler Shing!, crowd-blending party game Unspottable, and the Zuma-alike Marble Duel on Xbox One.
