Out this week: Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty, Scars Above, Destiny 2: Lightfall, BROK the InvestiGator, LEAP, more

There’s an air of intrigue to this week’s assortment of new releases, with several titles promising something new or a little different.

From the developers of Nioh comes new IP Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty – a dark fantasy Souls-like set in 184 AD. You play as a nameless militia soldier trained in Chinese martial arts, out to rid The Three Kingdoms of a demon infestation. Xbox Game Pass subs will be able to grab it on day one.

Prime Matter’s sci-fi third-person shooter Scars Above appears cut from the same ‘AA’ cloth as the publisher’s own Dolmen, The Chant, and The Last Oricru. The twist here is that our protag isn’t a grizzled soldier but rather a scientist, able to use her resourcefulness and knowledge to improve equipment and quickly discover the enemy’s weak points.

BROK the InvestiGator, meanwhile, mixes point ‘n clicking with punching and kicking. It’s an investigative adventure where BROK – a former boxer turned private investigator – cracks both heads and cases. The presentation isn’t dissimilar to a ‘90s Disney cartoon series. Think Talespin or Darkwing Duck.

Destiny 2 gains its anticipated Lightfall DLC too – take a look at the glitzy trailer below. Unfortunate timing, perhaps, for LEAP – a large-scale sci-fi multiplayer shooter with hoverboards, exosuits, and a rideable mechanical moose.  

Then there’s Meg’s Monster – an intriguing RPG where the world ends if the titular character becomes scared or upset – a surprise release of the popular indie Bendy and the Dark Revival, a PS4/Xbox release of the excellent Horace, side-scrolling action roguelike sequel void* tRrLM2(); //Void Terrarium 2, new Final Fantasy VII DLC for PowerWash Simulator, and the solemn No Longer Home – an experience based around letting go.

Metroid Prime Remastered gains a retail release, too. How many people who bought it digitally are also buying a physical copy, we wonder.
