This weeks gives us the anticipated next installment in the Division franchise.

Beloved Classic Turok hits Nintendo Switch, and anime fans can be excited for One Piece World Seeker and The Caligula Effect Overdose.
"New Game Tuesday" showcases major game releases from Tuesday to the following Monday. Scroll down to see if any of the major releases appeal to you!
1. The Division 2
Release Date: 3/15
Platforms: Xbox One, PS4, PC
I'll admit, I was not at all excited when the Division 2 was revealed. The first game was such an overpromised underdelivered failure. Blinking skies, beanies, and graphical downgrades galore, it failed to deliver the "trully next gen" experience it promised, and reaked of the failure that was "Watchdogs" all over again. So when Division 2 promised once again a beautiful new experience I was very skeptical. However early impressions seem positive. Division 2 may indeed be a good game of 2019, and only launch will tell how well its launch window goes. I am more excited now than I was at release.
Division 2 is a looter shooter set in Washington DC post a viral outbreak that has crippled the US. You are play as a special militia trying to keep order in a chaotic world, and thank God there is no Zombies.
