April 2017 looks great for all types of gamers. There’s a game for almost everyone this month. So, if you’re not aware of the awesomeness that’s coming then you really need to check this list out. Gotta stay up to date and keep a nice sized backlog… right?
April has an impressive list of games coming out this year which ranges from horror to family friends platformers and military shooters. There’s a good number of games coming next month but your wallet is only so deep so we’ve made it easy for you find the best games.
Here is our list of the top 5 games you should definitely look at purchasing next month.
It goes without saying that Outlast was the horror hit of 2013 and now the horror game is getting a sequel. After the trouble earlier this month for the Australian release, we’ve found out a few details about this highly anticipated horror game. The game was originally rejected a classification which effectively banned it in Australia for some time but thankfully, that problem was fixed pretty quickly.
With Resident Evil 7 being released last year, Outlast 2 is set to be the horror game of 2017. There’s a lot of anticipation for this game and only time will tell if the developers can reach those expectations. It will be released at the end of the month on April 25th.
This RPG is the next addition to the popular Persona series but this game will feature a brand new cast of characters in a modern-day world. Just like the other games in the series, it’s set in a high school however the developers have stated it’s a very different game. It’s uncertain exactly what that means but the next game in the Persona series will supposedly be an “emotional experience” which makes this game something that gamers should keep on their radar.
As expected from Persona 5, the game will be exclusive to the PlayStation. It’ll be released for PlayStation 4 and 3 on April 4th.
The spiritual successor to Banjo and Kazooie is almost here! It’s a homage to the 3D platformers of the past such as Spyro the Dragon and Crash Bandicoot, a genre that has slowly died out over the past few years. Yooka-Layee began life as a Kickstarter campaign and now it’s being released for a range of platforms. There are even questions about a possible Nintendo Switch launch for the game.
Yooka-Layee will be available for the PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 on April 11th.
This curious indie game has been designed around classic childhood fears while sitting firmly in the platform-puzzle genre. Players need to navigate the strange oversized world as they attempt to survive and escape from The Maw and the nightmarish creatures that call it home. I was able to play a demo during the PC Gamer Weekender so you can find some more of my thoughts on the game here.
Little Nightmares will be released for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 on April 28th.
Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3
The new Sniper: Ghost Warrior game spent some time in Open Beta last month where the game collected a very positive response. However, the game was delayed at the start of the month. It was originally down for an April 4th release but the game has been pushed back several weeks. This is due to a few comments from players and can only be a good thing for the game. Hopefully the extra weeks will allow the developers to perfect this game as the Open Beta was very promising.
The new release date for Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3 is April 25th and the game will be released for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
Here are some other games which might be worth getting next month
