After the lull comes the flood. The post-E3 quiet period has begun to lift, with PC players getting the best of it this week: Monster Hunter World. This week also sees the release of We Happy Few after the game’s ban and reclassification, while Dead Cells comes out of early access proper.
WW2 shooter fans will get Post Scriptum to play around with. It’s a packed Week in Games.

So, We Happy Few. For those who didn’t pick it up in early access originally – and have since discovered that you can’t, after it was pulled from sale in February – here’s the most recent story trailer to help ground you.
Fans of games that you have yelling at the TV / everyone else in the room may appreciate the Overcooked sequel, dropping at the end of the week. Key changes include the ability to toss ingredients, shift restaurants around, and a whole bunch of new recipes and levels to toy with.
We’ve spoken about Dead Cells plenty of late, so let’s touch quickly on Post Scriptum. It’s essentially targeting the oldschool Battlefield 1942 or Red Orchestra crowd, those who want a grittier spin on the modern Battlefield format, for lack of a better phrase. It’s an interesting mix; here’s some chunks of gameplay.
Last one for the day. Unavowed is an indie RPG/mystery where you end up joining a secret society after – stay with me here – a demon possesses your body and goes on a rampage through New York.
Certainly the weirdest game this week, anyway. Anything catch your eye?
