Games to Watch Out For This April

God of War

Another month is here, and unlike the last few, it’s one that isn’t bursting at the seams with new game releases.

Many of the games that are being released in April are heavy-hitters, however. So while there’s not a great deal of quantity, there is quality. So sit back in your chair, take a sip of coffee and take a gander at the list below to see what games you’ve got to look forward to this April.

Impact Winter

Release date: 5th April
Formats: PS4 and Xbox One

Released last year on PC, if you’re into snowy survival games then Impact Winter is certainly a game you should check out. This month sees the title making the leap to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, where hopefully it will find an audience with its addictive mix of adventure and resource management.

Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice

Hellblade

Release date: 11th April
Formats: Xbox One

PlayStation 4 and PC gamers have already had their fun with Ninja Theory’s excellent Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice, but this month Xbox One gamers get their grubby little hands on it. Featuring Xbox One X support, we simply can’t wait to see how Hellblade looks, and plays, on Microsoft’s powerhouse.

Gal Gun 2

Release Date: 13th April
Formats: PS4 and Nintendo Switch

Preorder Gal Gun 2

Get your pheromone gun at the ready, Gal Gun is back, and it promises to be better than ever. Having you once again eradicating demons from a school, this on-rails shooter also has more than its fair share of risque humour. It’s not a game for everyone, but if the idea of girls swooning all over you sounds appealing, Gal Gun 2 won’t disappoint.

Yakuza 6: The Song of Life

Release Date: 17th April
Formats: PS4

Preorder Yakuza 6: The Song of Life

Yakuza 6: The Song of Life is finally released this month after being delayed. We’re sure that it’ll be worth the wait, though. Kazuma Kiryu’s last adventure is one that takes place with an entirely new game engine, built to truly take advantage of the power of the PlayStation 4. With all the humour and bone-breaking antics that we’e come to love about the series, Yakuza 6 is one of April’s must-haves for sure.
