Five years to the day. That’s how long it’s been since Deus Ex: Human Revolution hit store shelves and digital markets — in United States time, anyway. But now we’ve got another one, Mankind Divided.
It’s time to shank a lot of people in the back again. But if cyberpunk stealth isn’t your style, there’s plenty more out this week.
Worms W.M.D. All Stars (PC, PS4, XBO)
What is it? Think Worms: Armageddon.
Should you care? Depends on whether Worms Armageddon or Worms World Party was your favourite.
Madden NFL 17 (PS3, PS4, XBO, X360)
What is it? Murica football.
Should you care? You’ll already know if you do.
What is it? The PC port of the punishingly quick platformer.
Should you care? More people should.
The King of Fighters XIV (PS4)
What is it? The latest iteration of a very, very underrated series.
Should you care? If you have any passing interest in fighting games — absolutely.
What is it? The PS4 release from the makers of Limbo.
Should you care? If you loved Limbo, absolutely.
What is it? A really funky puzzle platformer that’s about infographics.
Should you care? Watch the trailer and try not to. The style alone looks great.
Deus Ex: Mankind Divided (PC, PS4, XBO)
What is it? The latest cyberpunk adventure featuring Adam Jensen, implants and a whole lot of takedowns.
Should you care? Watch some of the shenanigans Kirk got up to. You’ll know after that.
Hue (PC, PS4, XBO, Vita)
What is it? An indie platformer that revolves around changing the background colour of the environment.
Should you care? You’ll know after seeing the trailer.
Valley (PC, PS4, XBO)
What is it? An action-explorer from the makers of Slender.
Should you care? This could be very, very cool.
Alone With You (PS4, Vita)
What is it? A sci-fi explorer with a sweet low-poly aesthetic.
Should you care? Looks like a cracker for people who are into point-and-click adventures.
Big City Stories (PS4)
What is it? A free-to-play city builder that has a bit of a multiplayer twist.
Should you care? Probably not this week.
Assetto Corsa (PS4)
What is it? The PS4 launch of the serious racer.
Should you care? Only if you’re that rare breed who races on PS4 with a wheel and pedals.
Prominence Poker (PS4)
What is it? It’s a game about the “underworld poker experience”.
Should you care? Only if it was somehow part of a Red Dead Redemption sequel.
What is it? The console release of the claymation point and click adventure.
Should you care? The cinematics are cool, but a lot of backers were disappointed with the gameplay.
Absolute Drift: Zen Edition (PS4)
What is it? The PS4 release of a game that’s all about drifting.
Should you care? If you ever played any of those top-down indie racers, this is for you. The art style is sick.
