This Week in Games: June 22 – 27


Control for Xbox get some DLC, Multiplayer Conan the Barbarian, free Stranger Things and  SPONGEBOB SQUAREPANTS! But before we get to the full list, here are your highlights:

Who lives in a pineapple under the sea? Absorbent and yellow and porous is he? If you know the answer to this you are already looking forward to SpongeBob SquarePants: Battle for Bikini Bottom – Rehydrated the update for the 2003 title for current gen consoles. Releasing on Tuesday for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One (and Steam on Wednesday), the update also adds in a brand new multiplayer mode as you play as SpongeBob, Patrick or Sandy.

Xbox One gamers feeling out of the loop this week will finally get their copy of DLC for Control. This dropped on other platforms a bit earlier with only Xbox waiting for more telekinetic gun toting Director of Control action. Head to the basement and the caverns below with ‘The Foundation’ DLC on Thursday.

Saturday get your Barbarian on with the Rogue-Lite Conan Chop Chop. Playing with up to 4 players with graphics that are a cross between Links Awakening and The Oatmeal comics hack and slash through an onslaught of creatures and foes on this one available this Saturday for Xbox One.

Honourable Mention: And our honourable (free) mention this week goes to Stranger Things 3: The Game. Out from the Epic Store this 16-bit style adventure title plays through the events of Season 3 of the Netflix Stranger Things with 12 playable characters for you to battle across Hawkins. This is out via the Epic Store on Saturday for a limited time.
