New Video Game Releases for the Week of 6-18-17

Final Fantasy 14‘s newest expansion, Stormblood, comes out this Tuesday, introducing the Red Mage and Samurai jobs to the universe (and far, far more). Those who feel like they missed an accessible point of entry into the MMORPG can pick up Final Fantasy 14 Online: The Complete Edition on the same day; with A Realm Reborn, Heavensward, and Stormblood all included in one package, you’ll be caught up in no time. This week’s new video game releases may be overshadowed by Final Fantasy 14, but there are some noteworthy games coming from all directions.

Console owners finally get a chance to dive into the survival horror Dead by Daylight on Tuesday alongside the Mega Man-esque Cave Story + coming to the Switch on the same day.

Still not appeased? Friday comes bearing with it Ever Oasis for the 3DS by Koichi Ishii, a creative powerhouse best known for the Mana series. If, instead, you’re looking for something a little darker, check out Get Even on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One (comes a day earlier on Steam). It looks strangely psychological and disturbing in concept. Sounds good to me.

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