Zombie Survival, WWII Tactics, EDM Rhythm games and some weird shape changing sheep thing are some what is in store for your gaming week. But before we get to the full list, here are your highlights:

Starting the week hopefully has you not sick of Zombies by now as that is the main thing driving the latest title Undying. You take on the role of Aniling a Mother who is trying to find somewhere safe for her son during a Zombie apocalypse – also you have been bitten by a zombie and will turn. Expect some feels from this Survival game when it drops for Steam on Tuesday.

Not leaving isometric gameplay for a moment is War Mongrels which is also coming for Steam. Set in WWII it is a real time tactics game where you use your environments to your advantage as you navigate an occupied region of Europe. Fortunately you don’t have to go it alone as this one also offers online Co-Op when it releases this Thursday.

And lastly for the week is the Final Fantasy meets EDM adventure title of No Straight Roads: Encore Edition. Expect rhythm based 3rd person combat from a kick-ass soundtrack in a game that can be played solo or with couch based co-op. This one is another title coming to you for Steam on Thursday.

Honourable Mention: And our honourable mention this week goes to the kinetic platformer Sheepo. Sitting somewhere between Super Meat Boy and the early Commander Keen titles you are Sheepo (no you are not a sheep but you are a shape-shifting sheep-thing) you are an intergalactic species cataloguer and it’s your first day on the job. Traverse an uncharted alien world, catalogue and save all the species on it by defeating the queen and collecting the egg. Kinda like Megaman or any Metroidvania title… but with a sheep-thing. Sheepo is for Playstation on Tuesday, Switch on Wednesday and Xbox on Thursday.

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
