With over twenty new releases on Xbox alone, it’s another busy week for new releases.

The Dark Pictures Anthology gains its third entry. House of Ashes sees a military unit discover a dark secret buried under a temple, resulting in another dose of horror thrills. It’s due on PS5, PS4, Xbox and PC.

A trio of RPGs are upon us too. As is usually the case for NIS America titles, The Caligula Effect 2 heads to PS4 and Switch. This RPG takes place in a futuristic high school where a virtual doll is trapping people in an artificial realm.

If you prefer your RPGs to be darker and more traditional, there’s Disciples: Liberation – a turn-based affair from Kalypso, boasting a mature tone.

This leaves us with Echo Generation on PC and Xbox One. It’s a supernatural turn-based adventure set in 1993, taking inspiration from Earthbound and Stranger Things.

The Switch gets Dying Light: Platinum Edition and a belated release of the well-received retro shooter Raiden IV X Mikado Remix. Although pre-release footage looked impressive, the jury is still out on Dying Light. It may well be another miracle port.

Then there’s the fast-paced retro-FPS roguelite Into the Pit, Victorian-era puzzle platformer Tandem: A Tale of Shadows, top-down shooter Tony and Clyde, and a PS5 re-release of Gas Guzzlers Extreme – a car combat smash ‘n crasher that’s something of a guilty pleasure. It’s also due on Switch in the not too distant future.
