Games to Watch Out For This May

Maneater 2 (1)

Are you ready for a nice, relaxed May?

You better be, because there aren’t many games coming out. The Last of Us Part II no doubt scared everything away, and then scarpered itself.

This May is very quiet on the video game front, so it’s perhaps a good month to work through your backlog, or even play some of the great games on services like Xbox Game Pass or PS Now. There are some new releases that you might want to pick up though, so here are the games you should watch out for this May.

Maneater

Maneater-min

Release date: 22nd May
Formats: PS4, Xbox One & PC

An open world RPG in which you get to take control of a shark, Maneater is by far the game we’re most excited about this month. Its story is even narrated by Chris Parnell, of Rick and Morty and Saturday Night Live fame.
