New Video Game Releases for the Week of 4-8-18

With the first (slow) week of April gone and done, let’s look forward to some more exciting prospects on the horizon. Nevermind all the info pouring out of GDC and PAX East — as incredible as Spyro looks, it’s still a few months off. Among all the games coming out this week, however, only a few hold the potential for a monstrous impact.

Extinction comes out on Tuesday. If you like the concept of Attack on Titan but wish it were orcs and not giant, naked manbabies terrorizing humanity, give it a look. The only other game that strikes me as immediately intriguing is Super Daryl Deluxe, a 2D side-scrolling platformer with a killer art style. At the very least, I’m excited to see what’s come of Daryl since the last time we checked in. Things are otherwise slow in the “New Games” department.

Call of Duty: WWII drops its second DLC pack, The War Machine, this week, introducing dogfighting and a good bit of other updates to the CoD community. Barring a handful of exciting ports, such as Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice coming to Xbox One and Burly Men at Sea to the Switch, there’s not much else going on this week.

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