New Video Game Releases for the Week of 5-21-17

As far as variety is concerned, the new games coming out this week are killing it. Embers of Mirrim drops this Tuesday and looks as wonderful as it does curious. Portal Knights, what looks like a revamped Minecraft on RPG steroids, releases the same day on PS4 and Xbox One. As with the tactics-heavy Pox Nora coming to PS4 (also on Tuesday), however, most of the more remarkable games this week are older games ported to various consoles.

Speaking of tactics and ports, this week brings Disgaea 5 Complete to the Switch, which is terrible news for my bank account. Alongside Star Ocean: Till The End of Time, FromSoftware’s PS2 debut, Eternal Ring, comes to the PS4 this week, as well. Overwatch finally gets its GotY Edition out, Black Desert Online attempts to revitalize the MMO scene with Steam support, and a bit more (including the puzzling adventure game, RiME). And Friday the 13th: The Game, which is drenched in survival horror. It’s madness. A lukewarm madness, it seems, but chaotic nonetheless!

Oh, and players with early access will finally be able to explore Morrowind within the Elder Scrolls Online world for the first time this week. Pretty cool.

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