You only need a few seconds to look at screenshots from Trek To Yomi to see that developer Flying Wild Hog is investing heavily in atmospheric experience. Beautiful black and white graphics, efficient camera angles, and a decent soundtrack will make you feel like you’re in a real samurai movie. And that’s exactly what this game wants to convey!
In Trek To Yomi, you play as the punishing samurai Hiroki, who vows to his dying master to protect his city and loved ones from all threats afflicting the earth. In addition to the cinematic experience, the combat system also has to steal the show in this indie game, so get ready for epic katana encounters and duels like the one we experienced in Ghost of Tsushima. So if you are looking for a good dose of samurai entertainment, Trek To Yomi is probably the thing for you!
With Evil Dead: The Game, we once again got an old-fashioned movie game. The first installment appeared in the American horror franchise in 1981 and has grown into a popular series. It results 41 years later that we can take main character Ash Williams under the hood. Get ready to survive and get the balls out of your clothes!
Developer Saber Interactive describes Evil Dead: The Game as an “unequal multiplayer experience.” This means that both co-op and PvP battles are included, so whether you want to play with friends or just blast those same friends, anything is possible!
With over 25 iconic weapons and several multiplayer maps based on locations from the movies (including ‘Cabin in the Woods’), Evil Dead: The Game should be a feast for fans of the franchise. Let’s hope the survival game stays interesting long enough for players who aren’t familiar with the franchise, due in part to the leveling system and different skill trees. We’ll check it out starting May 13th!
We’ll be sticking with bloodthirsty fantasy characters for a while, because Vampire: The Masquerade – Swansong releases on May 19. Take on the role of three different vampires, each with their own abilities, so you have a suitable vampire for each situation. And you’ll need to, because making choices is of paramount importance at Swansong.
Set in Boston, Swansong follows the story of vampires Galeb, Emem, and Leysha, three completely different characters from the same caste, so it promises to be a fun group. Developer Big Bad Wolf promises Swansong will be a good movie, so we hope to be on the edge of our seat when making important decisions. Whether Swansong is worth it or whether we should stick to the board game, we’ll check later this month.
Lay your rod in the grass for hours, waiting for the wind to be perfect and pierce that enemy from several kilometers away with a 50-caliber bullet. That might come to mind when you hear the name Sniper Elite, but it’s not quite. what is it then? A lot of freedom of choice in approaching your mission and whether you do it with a dagger or in fact with a sniper: you decide for yourself.
Main character Karl Fairburne is back in Sniper Elite 5 and loads his weapons to show off the things he made. The name of the franchise indicates that you can successfully complete your missions only as a sniper, but Karl, as well as Rambo, can enter through the front door and kill everyone with a shotgun. The choice is yours and that is exactly what this franchise looked like.
I’ve been playing the game for a few hours And it turns out that the Sniper Elite does nothing new compared to its predecessor, but that’s not bad at all, he says. Lots of weapons, traps setting possibilities, and well-designed levels are the basis of the fun you must experience with Sniper Elite 5. If developer Rebellion can sort out the beauty flaws of the game before May 26th, that fun will surely come.
