Out this week: Park Beyond, F1 23, Dordogne, Fall of Porcupine, Steel Assault, Crime Boss: Rockay City, more

If you’re able to tear yourself from Diablo IV, Street Fighter 6, and Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, you’ll find another assortment of new releases vying for your attention.

Big hitters for this week include EA and Codemasters F1 23 – with a new ‘Braking Point’ story mode – and Bandai-Namco’s busy looking, gravity-defying, theme park builder Park Beyond. Has Planet Coaster met its match? Dead by Daylight also gains its anticipated End Transmission DLC.

Then there’s the ’90s sci-fi survival horror Greyhill Incident, a new instalment of Layers of Fear, Focus’ lavishing-looking watercolour escapade Dordogne, and the story-driven healthcare-focused adventure Fall of Porcupine. 505 Games’ Crime Boss: Rockay City comes to consoles too. Despite the initial trailer generating a buzz, the tepid reception to the PC version has seen excitement tail off.

As is usually the case, there are a few retro-inspired games too. Atari’s Pixel Ripped 1978 comes to PSVR2, 16-bit action platformer Steel Assault makes the jump from Switch, Brave Soldier – Invasion of Cyborgs offers run ‘n gun thrills, Japanese-style shoot’em up Danmaku Unlimited 3 comes to PS4, while QByte brings together the SNES’ little known Legend and Iron Commando for an inexpensive double pack. Joining them is the Q*Bert style isometric platformer Hoppy Hop, showcasing tidy pixel art. We’re all ears.

Arcade Archives Splatterhouse should be out too. It’s about time the Splatterhouse series gained a proper collection, we feel.
