One here is for gamers that are fans of city builders like SIM City or the outstanding Cities Skylines by the same publishing team. Here you are heading to Mars to colonise it. All of which sounds pretty cool and potentially addictive.

Take me down to the Paradise City! Yes, the song is in all our heads now as we see this classic come back. Plus, it’s coming in 4K to the PS4 Pro and Xbox One X too which is pretty awesome. This is a classic game and one I personally can’t want for and will be a big one for many Burnout fans this month.

Is it a sign it’s coming back… hummm?

Burnout Paradise Information

In 2008, the original Burnout Paradise came roaring off the starting line ready to demolish the competition. Featuring breakneck racing, high-flying stunts, and — most importantly — shameless amounts of automotive destruction, Burnout Paradise set the bar for what an action racing game could be. And now, ten years later, it’s back and ready to show a new generation of consoles the true definition of a “smash hit.”

The Definitive Burnout Paradise Experience

Relive the high-octane stunts and wanton destruction of one of the greatest arcade-driving games ever. Featuring a range of technical enhancements for greater visual fidelity and authenticity, it plays natively in 1080p on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, and in 4K at 60fps on the PlayStation 4 Pro and Xbox One X.

Nintendo are pulling no punches with the classic characters and charm coming to Nintendo Switch. Kirby is the latest to add to the mix this March as you can play co-op in this latest adventure. It looks cartoony, fun but also like a really engaging game to play.

Some very happy Nintendo fans this month methinks!

Not exactly a new game but certainly a classic, and its going to be playable on consoles! All of them in fact and it’s packing some upgrades too. The game is using a “tailor made” user interface for the move to console and it’s all looking a great idea for fans of action role playing games.

A rather unusual entry as the Anime style title Attack on Titan comes out this month. The game is hitting all consoles, including the switch and looks a bit mad and a lot fun. The emphasis is on online play and adding more content from the original title and looks like a Niche title many will really enjoy.

Attack On Titan 2 Information

upcoming games march 2018 image 6

In A.O.T. 2, players can enjoy one of the newly introduced online modes to either build friendships or create enemies. Returning from A.O.T. Wings of Freedom are the co-operative online modes, alongside an all-new competitive PvP mode where players fight against each other to claim the highest score, and ascend to the top of the leader boards.

The newly introduced competitive multiplayer option, Annihilation Mode, sees two teams of four Scouts compete to earn the highest score within a set time limit. Defeating the devastating Titans is one of the most important ways to earn individual points and climb the leader board. Although, working together is also key as it can earn the team a Chain Bonus through destroying each Titan body part before subjugating them. Building and defending bases is also an efficient way of securing points. With select areas on the map allowing for base development, opposing teams will vie for the location – defending them is of utmost priority.

i was a little sad when this came out on PS3 and Xbox 360 since I was onto the PS4 and Xbox One at the time. It was to keep last gen gamers happy but we can finally play this in full HD and 4K with this remaster AC fans. It looks great and I want to explore this story for myself too. The issue will be playing this after Origins in terms of gameplay!

Assassin’s Creed Rogue Remastered Information

Oh do I want to play this! I loved the original, a classic game that came to the PS3 near the end of it’s time. I’m still shocked you can’t buy a port of it for PS4 either! But we don’t have to wait too long for more fellow fans of this amazing RPG. This may well be one of the games of the year if they get it all as perfect as the original.

Ni No Kuni II Information

We are all looking forward to this game because 1, it looks awesome. And 2, because Josef Fares from Hazelight is a legend for his whole “f*** the oscars rant at The Game Awards. As a fan of story driven games I am really interested in this one. Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons was amazing and this is an expansion on that idea.

Plus you can play with a friend with one copy of the game, because “f*** buying two copies! Awesome.

Get ready for an action-packed co-op experience unlike anything you’ve ever played with A Way Out, from the creator of Brothers – A Tale of Two Sons.

A Way Out is designed to be played with two players from start to finish. You can team up with a friend on your couch and play, or you can invite any of your friends online regardless of whether or not they’ve purchased the game.

That’s right, when you buy the full game you can play the entire experience with any of your friends online. Send them an invite, they’ll unlock the Free Trial, and then you’re ready to play.

My other game of the month is the return of Ubisoft’s BEST gaming franchise in my humble opinion. One thing that stands out is how good the villain has been in both Far Cry 4 in Pagan Min and Vaas from FC3. Will this new antagonist, Joseph Seed be to that standard? I hope so because it’s the only question i have over this game. It’s going to be excellent.

Far Cry 5 information

upcoming games march 2018 Image 11

Welcome to Hope County, Montana, home to a fanatical doomsday cult known as The Project at Eden’s Gate that is threatening the community’s freedom. Stand up to the cult’s leader, Joseph Seed and the Heralds, and spark the fires of resistance that will liberate the besieged community.

In this expansive world, your limits and creativity will be tested against the biggest and most ruthless baddest enemy Far Cry has ever seen. It’ll be wild and it’ll get weird, but as long as you keep your wits about you, the residents of Hope County can rest assured you’re their beacon of hope.
