Action RPGs, surviving war-torn cities, trying to remember some magic words that the wise man gave you before you take the magic book to transport you back to the future and end the deadite plague, and finding the perfect spot for your stuffed teddy bear is some of the gaming ahead of you this week But before we get to the full list, here are your highlights:

Starting your week by scratching that classic Action RPG itch is Eiyuden Chronicle: Rising. A prequel set against the same world as Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes this one is coming for PC via Steam and the Epic Store on Tuesday with PlayStation, Xbox and Nintendo Switch on Wednesday.

Also on Wednesday but only for Xbox is This War of Mine: Final Cut. Playing not as some gun toting mercenary but as a group of civilians this side scroller has you trying to survive in a besieged city looking for food, medicine and in constant danger from snipers and hostile scavengers.

Listen up S-Mart shoppers the OG Rami horror series tie-in is happening this week with Evil Dead: The Game dropping for all major platforms this week. Based on all the Evil Dead movies + Ash vs The Evil Dead series, the game has you playing in a PVE or Co-Op against (or as) the legions of Deadites in some iconic Evil Dead series locations. Hail to the King on Friday for PlayStation and Xbox with the Epic Games store carrying it for PC on Saturday.

Honourable Mention: And our honourable mention this week comes from a multi-award winning game including a BAFTA award with the Brisbane developers made Unpacking. Unpacking follows the story of a character that you never see and just instead unpack their room or apartment or house at different points in their life. Already out for other Platforms including Steam and the Switch, this is the is a short game but provides so much zen and worth picking up for the PlayStation when it releases this Tuesday.

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
