Time to bust out that techno soundtrack again.
Mortal Kombat 11 turns 27 this year, and the franchise returns on all platforms (bar mobile) from today. It doesn’t officially unlock on Steam until early tomorrow morning, mind you.
If open-world story-driven zombie games are more your thing, there’s also Days Gone. Want a JRPG instead? Then Dragon’s Dogma gets a fresh lease of life on the Switch. There’s also a new Box Boy! and Box Girl! game, the latest grand strategy game from Paradox, and a ton of quirky indies including Death Coming and the adorably chill Picross S3.
Here’s this week in games. And, given the long weekend, I’ve included games that were released on Monday as well.

Big week, then. We’ll kick things off with a couple of Days Gone trailers, to set the mood.
Phew. Plenty to get through this week. I’ve always enjoyed a Mortal Kombat story, but I’m also keen to see what Days Gone does with its world to tie everything together. Picross 3, Death Coming and Hyper Flight look like fun as well, and that’s not even getting started on what people are going to do with the new Paradox game.
I wonder if you can make a horse Emperor this time. Anyway, that’s the wrap – see anything you like?
