This Week in Games: Aug 31 – Sep 5


This week Assemble for some multiplayer gaming, free an alternate history steampunk Europe, Rally across NZ or hunt down the Kraken on the open seas. But before we get to the full list, here are your highlights:

The big game for this week is Square Enix’s Marvel Avengers. You might have already gotten your hands on this via the Beta last week but the full game comes out this Tuesday for PS4 and Xbox One (or later in the week on Steam or if you don’t get the Deluxe Editions). Clearly intended for the long haul with the ability to play as multiple Avengers with Kamala Khan/Ms Marvel as the main lead at launch you will be able to play as the main 6 Avengers with extra Avengers unlock being through Battle Pass.

If you have a Command & Conquer itch that you just can’t scratch then also on Tuesday via Steam is the Steampunk/Alt History of Iron Harvest. Playing like your standard RTS this puts you in post WWI Europe in a world where Iron Mechs are at home on the battlefield.


In racing this week we get World Rally Championship for PlayStation and Xbox One. Fans who are familiar with World Rally know what to expect but this one adds 3 new rallies including New Zealand. You might not be able to get outside but you can still have some fun in the mud this Thursday.

Honourable Mention: And lastly our honourable mention goes to Switch gamers this week with the sea faring ways of Here Be Dragons. Playing like an antique map your journey is to clear the seven seas of perilous Sea Monsters so explorers can discover new lands in your wake (or you know, wipe out the indigenous population…)

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
