New Video Game Releases for the Week of 8-12-18

While it’s a relatively calm week in the world of new video games, that’s not stopping World of Warcraft from dropping a bomb. Battle for Azeroth, the MMO’s newest expansion, goes live this Tuesday (Monday if you’re in America). The loop of conflict continues as war breaks out, once again, between the Horde and Alliance, but something about this one feels…different. Destruction affords change, so a war of this magnitude could forever sculpt the landscape of Azeroth as we know it.

If you’re anything like me, you probably haven’t touched WoW in a hot minute — don’t worry, you’re not hung out to dry this week. Those looking for a conclusion in Telltale’s The Walking Dead series finally get their wish this Tuesday, as the final season gets released. Death’s Gambit may be worth looking into if last week’s official Dead Cells release didn’t quite do it for you. Want all the death and none of the “gambit”? Take a gander at Deathgarden. Want the garden, but no death? Evergarden might just be the right strategical supplement to your gaming library.

Tanglewood looks like it could scratch that old school platformer itch, and even ships with a Mega Drive ROM to help cement its authentic aesthetic. Other than that, Manual Samuel could offer a right laugh or two for Switch owners this week. The Elder Scrolls Online gets its Wolfhunter DLC up and going on Monday, too, but there’s one game that has overshadowed my interested in all of the above.

That game is Wailing Heights.

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