Remember Destiny 2? With yet another year of stellar games (so far), it can be hard to jump back into a game that’s “so last year,” but Destiny 2‘s second expansion Warmind is sure to turn a few heads. New narrative adventures await those daring enough to brave the depths of Mars’ polar ice caps, complete with new weapons, gear, and co-operative opportunities. If you’re looking for a time to get back into the game, this might be it.

Most of the games that caught my interest are ports from one platform to another, but there are a couple indie gems able to shine through this week’s slower pace. Death Road to Canada immediately stands out to me due to both its name and concept. Think Oregon Trail, but with more action and (way more) zombies. Super Chariot is for the little voice in your head trying to convince you that you need to play a platformer with a friend, and there’s no better platform than the Switch to do it on. Got a PSVR headset that needs dusting off? Obduction comes out on PS4 this Tuesday, and its premise is immediately alluring. Maybe it’s due to it being the successor to Myst, but hey — take a gander either way.

If familiarity is what you’re after, Tacoma and Darkest Dungeon‘s Ancestral Edition finally come to PS4, Shantae: Half-Genie Hero (Ultimate Edition) and The Fall arrive on the Switch — all worthy of keeping an eye on.

Conan Exiles brings the shirtless barbarians to a massive open world fit for multiplayer. If you’re looking for more competition in your multiplayer activities, Paladins: Champions of the Realm leaves beta testing this week and officially releases. Not sporty enough for you? Try Laser League.

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.
