This Week in Games: Mar 23 – 28


Arena Brawlers aiming to be the next Overwatch, Borderlands DLC, Free AAA Titles from Ubisoft and Square Enix + Half-Life VR from Valve – if this can’t keep you safely indoors this week we don’t know what will. But before we get to the full list, here are your highlights:

Starting your week is a new contender aiming for Overwatch’s crown – Bleeding Edge. This has more than a little in common with Overwatch, unique animated characters with special abilities and classes, different game modes and maps in a multiplayer arena brawler. Check it out on Xbox One and Steam on Tuesday.

Next up it is here – Half-Life 3 confirmed! Ok well not Half-Life 3 but a new Half-Life game none the less with Half-Life: Alyx. Set in the time between Half-Life and Half-Life 2 you play as Alyx Vance from HL2 this is Valve’s return to Half-Life AND VR with this being a completely VR only exclusive. Available through Steam of course you will need a HTC Vive, Oculus Rift or a compatible Windows Mixed Reality Device to play.

For those with Borderlands 3 Season Passes on Friday to help you stay indoors is the next bit of DLC – Guns, Love and Tentacles. The new DLC is mainly about the marriage of Wainwright and Hammerlock but it also adds new weapons including some nice new Legendary ones but new guns and Borderlands shouldn’t come as a surprise.

Honourable Mention: This week our honourable mentions go out to all the AAA titles you can pick-up for free while you try to stay at home. On Steam Square Enix is making the 2013 Tomb Raider and Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris for free and over on the Epic Store you can pickup the 2014 Watch Dogs also for free.

If you bought any of these on the release day, tell us how it went! Also, as always did we miss anything? Something you are looking forward to more than anything else? Tell us in the comments
