This Week in Games: May 27 – June 1

This week’s game releases are a wild ride: an adrenaline-pumping F1, a superhero strategy showdown, an epic hack-and-slash adventure, a quirky space quest, and the full-on chaos of non-Disney or Nintendo licensed IP characters making it to an official release? But before we get to the full list, here are your highlights:

New year means new EA sports titles and F1 is hitting 2024 pretty hard with VR support on the Steam edition right up front (sorry no PSVR2 though it seems). Releasing first for PlayStation on Wednesday but on Xbox and for PC via Steam & the Epic Store on Saturday this is the official 2024 FIA Formula One title.

Want some X-Com style turn based game play with your Superhero genre? On Thursday Capes comes to pretty much every platform you can think of (seriously, Xbox, PlayStation, Switch, Epic Store, Steam, all of them on the same day). The city has fallen with Supervillains winning the day 20 years ago but you are putting together a new Super team to clean up the city.

Coming Friday is a top 3rd person hack and slash/puzzler/adventurer in the form of Astor: Blade of the Monolith. Dropping for PlayStation, Xbox and via the Epic Games Store and Steam for PC all on the same day this is your standard young warrior saves the planet from impending doom type deal, but we are liking the visuals and feel like this one might be deceptively big like a Ratchet and Clank game.

And lastly for Friday if you are looking for something a bit more out there a bit more weird then can we interest you in Tiny Terry’s Turbo Trip coming to Steam. You control Terry as he explores his world to further his goal of launching himself into space. Not sure how exactly that is going to happen and from the game play we can see this one looks a bit weird. But we are into it.

Honourable Mention: And an honourable mention in last place this week is for Monday where MultiVerses gets a full release for PlayStation and via the Epic Games Store for PC. This WB licensed version of Smash Bros has indeed been out in beta before now but now it looks like the training wheels are off.

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
