Have a foam party in Vegas, team up with friends to wipe out alien bugs, rhythm based racing with a large licensed music catalogue and become a religious zealot is just some of the things you can do in gaming this week  But before we get to the full list, here are your highlights:

Part Foam Party, part Team Deathmatch is FOAMSTARS coming to PlayStation this week. Officially releasing on Tuesday but if you have PlayStation+ this month you will be able to pick it up for free. Does this seem a little bit like Splatoon but for Adults and from Square Enix? Yes, yes it does.

If you like your games to feature dark religious overtones and potentially torture then maybe you shouldn’t play this but The Inquisitor is exactly that and coming to PlayStation on Wednesday with Xbox and Steam releases Thursday. Set in an alternate religious history where Jesus broke free on the cross and wrecked vengeance instead you are one of his Inquisitors sent to a small village to maintain moral judgement. This one is a bit dark.

And one more for mostly PlayStation gamers (although if you have Steam you are also in luck) with HELLDIVERS™ 2. Dropped on an alien planet your job is to team with your friends to ‘protect freedom’ by wiping out giant alien bugs. If that sounds a little familiar to you then you probably have seen Starship Troopers as no doubt did the developers of this one. Play it from Thursday.

Honourable Mention: And our honourable mention is just something to help you with your TikTok music withdrawals with Warner Bros music teaming to give you something that is somewhere between guitar hero and linear racing in Invector: Rhythm Galaxy. The game itself is fairly simple with you controlling a ship on some tracks that you need to hit ‘notes’ but the added replay about it is each track is matched to a specific song from the Warner Bros music catalogue. It is already out on Steam but comes to Xbox on Friday.

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
