New Video Game Releases for the Week of 11-12-17

Star Wars Battlefront 2 opens its digital door on Tuesday for those who own the Deluxe Edition; if you have the standard edition, you’ll have to wait until Friday to jump in.

Not into the whole Star Wars thing? You may be stuck picking up a port of an older game this week, but some of them are more alluring than you’d think. Come Tuesday, Switch owners will be soaring through Rocket League‘s grand series of competitive arenas to win with some wicked vehicular acrobatics. Lego Marvel Super Heroes 2 drops for all the current-gen systems on the same day, following Thor: Ragnarok‘s generally positive release. The Sims 4 comes around to consoles with some expansive content, BioShock gets its 10th Anniversary Edition, and L.A. Noire reappears out of nowhere with a release on all platforms (including a VR extension of its universe for PC). Tuesday also comes bearing Warframe: Planes of Eidolon and boasts a pretty massive update to the Warframe world.

Friday, however, is when the heavies come into play.

The last two Pokemon entries coming to the 3DS, Pokemon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon, drop alongside not one, but two ports of The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim. One’s going to the Switch; a great fit for those on the move. If you’re looking to hunker down and lose yourself in an RPG, take a gander at Skyrim VR. PSVR owners will be pleased to jump into the shoes of their own Dragonborn, allowing them to experience the sense of Skyrim’s massive scale first-hand.

Through all the high profile releases on Friday, though, don’t forget to check out Crawl for the PS4. It rocks an 8-bit aesthetic with a 16-bit heart, and a beautifully simple multiplayer mechanic that pulls it all together. Check out the trailer here:

As always, everything is for PC unless stated otherwise, and the bold titles are the games that have piqued my interest.

Zach’s eternal preoccupation with video games became cemented at an early age. His first memorable journey away from reality began with a text-based Football game on a dirty Apple II; he’s chased fantasy ever since. Having took English classes as electives in college, Zach decided to pull the trigger on a merger between the two obsessions.
