Free to Play FPS on Alien Worlds, restoring your connection to the Force on the Switch, Riding through France or surviving in a Quarry, Play some soccer, fix some roads and blow some s$%^ up (safely of course) if that sounds like a lot to do this week for gaming, you aren’t wrong. But before we get to the full list, here are your highlights:

Starting the week with something actually Free to Play to save you some of your hard earned dollars is The Cycle: Frontier. Coming to Steam on Tuesday followed by the Epic Store on Wednesday this is a PVE/PVP title set on an alien world. There have been some people following this one for a long time and you can see why.

Obi-Wan Kenobi not enough? Lucasarts game brings back another Star Wars title from the early 2000s with Knights of the Old Republic II. For those not familiar Knights of the Old Republic is an RPG set well before any of the Star Wars films including prequels. Taking control of a party based shortly after the events of the first game you play as an exile looking to reconnect with the force and set out to stop the rise of the Sith.

Looking for a nice scene ride around France? Then you might be interested in Tour De France 2022 coming to Xbox, PlayStation and Steam this Thursday. Pretty much putting you right in the middle of the world’s most famous bike race you compete with others for the covered yellow jersey but against a pretty nice backdrop as you travel through Paris and the french countryside.

Coming from the same developer that was behind Until Dawn, House of Ashes, Little Hope and Man of Medan comes the next survival horror with The Quarry. If you aren’t familiar these are sort of quick time events the game as you try to survive (or kill off) characters in a teen horror type situation. Coming to PlayStation, Xbox and Steam this new one has one extra twist with a new mode where you can have all your characters survive or not and have the game autopay for you… but we are pretty sure that is just called a movie at a certain point.

Ok here is the short of it, Nintendo + Mario + Soccer… sorta soccer… well as soccer/football like as you can get with an electric fence. Strikers is as much like Soccer as Mario Kart is like F1. Coming for the Nintendo Switch this one lets you have up to 8 players on a single console and will give you something new to shout at your friends about.

And lastly this Saturday over on Steam is the colourful and minimalistic title of Please Fix The Road. This one is a simple casual puzzle game title that you can probably guess the gameplay from the title but one thing it does have is some oh so pleasing animations that caught our eye.

Honourable Mention: And our honourable mention this week goes to a lil bit of sciencin’ with MythBusters: The Game – Crazy Experiments Simulator. Coming to Steam on Wednesday this is like if you took one of those house flipper games and added a lot more sieving. While not the most intensive game out this week the nostalgia factor made it worth a mention to us.

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
