Gear up for a whirlwind week of gaming that’ll take you from sneaking through sci-fi dungeons to clashing with samurai legends, diving into open-world mysteries, and jamming out in a rhythm rebellion—every release this week you might ask yourself, is this a banger? But before we get to the full list, here are your highlights:

Wednesday, get ready to rock the stealth world with “Raw Metal” on Steam. You? You’re the king of sneak on Charybdis, creeping through the high-tech dungeons of Katabase 6 with nothing but your brain and a bag full of tricks. Think a ballet of destruction meets hide-and-seek, with a combo system that’ll have you dancing through danger like a shadow. Picture this: the game’s like the lovechild of top-down sneakiness and the in-your-face brawls of SIFU, wrapped up in a sci-fi package that screams ‘next-level.’

This Thursday, “Alone in the Dark” is coming back from the dead on Xbox, PlayStation, and Steam, throwing a wicked Southern Gothic party with a side of mind-melting psychological horror. Get ready to unravel the twisted mysteries of Derceto Manor, with Jodie Comer and David Harbour bringing their A-game to spook the living daylights outta you. And yeah, this ain’t the first rodeo for this HP Lovecraft-inspired classic from ’92, but trust me, this remake is dropping jaws and cranking up the pretty for next-gen

 

Gear up, folks! “Dragon’s Dogma 2” is dropping from Thursday to Saturday across PlayStation, Steam, and Xbox. Imagine Baldur’s Gate went on a solo date with Capcom, and boom, you’ve got this action-packed, choice-heavy RPG masterpiece. Swords ready, adventurers—dive into a vast land ripe with secrets, quests, and a narrative so rich you’ll feel every decision in your bones. This sequel’s gonna rock your world, shaping your journey with every step, every choice. Buckle up; it’s gonna be a wild ride!

 

This Thursday, “Rise of the Ronin” kicks down the doors onto PlayStation, and it’s not just any game—it’s a PlayStation Studios jewel that’s gonna redefine epic. Picture this: you, a sword-wielding rebel in 19th-century Japan, cutting through chaos, shaping your saga in a world that’s just as ruthless as you are. Brought to you by the legendary Team NINJA, this isn’t just a game—it’s a journey through a war-torn land where every choice slams you right into the heart of samurai lore. Gear up, PlayStation pals, because this exclusive is about to set your world on fire, samurai-style!

This Friday, the gaming world’s about to flip! “Horizon Forbidden West: Complete Edition” is busting out of its PlayStation exclusivity and rolling into PC territory via the Epic Games Store and Steam. Get hyped to join Aloy on her epic quest through uncharted lands, now juiced up with all the extras and the mind-blowing Burning Shores expansion. For my ultrawide warriors and graphics aficionados rocking NVIDIA/AMD rigs, this is your VIP ticket to dive headfirst into a world so gorgeous it’ll make your eyes weep

Honourable Mention: And our honourable mention this week blasts onto PlayStation with “Hi-Fi RUSH” this Tuesday, fresh off its rockstar tour on Xbox Game Pass. This ain’t your usual beat ’em up; it’s an all-out jam session of action, where you’re laying down the rhythm of rebellion against a megacorp with more power than a double-stack amp. Get ready to crank up the volume in the Arcade Challenge! Update, packed with fresh modes, swag, and secrets that’ll test your groove and grit.

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
