Much anticipated Gears 5 is here early for Ulitmate Pre-order and Game Pass Ultimate members with the standard launching next week for everyone else. The biggest name in basketball games 2K20 is here. So far the year of Apex has not lost moment with the Voidwalker event dropping any moment now, hyped up with an incredible 8 minute animated short about Wraith's origin. More games and updates drop this week so try to keep up! 

 

"New Game Tuesday" showcases some major game releases from Tuesday to the following Monday. Scroll down to see if any of the major releases appeal to you!

 

1. Apex Legends - VOIDWALKER Event 

Release Date: 9/3

Platforms: Xbox One, PS4, PC

Developer: Respawn Entertainment

Publisher: EA                                 

 

We got an exciting 8 minute look at Wraith's origins and how she joined the Apex games. It was incredible with just a bit of quantum physics to explain how she works. It's super cool, and now the event is live with new items, a map update, and more challenges! 

 

2. GEARS 5 Ultimate EDition

Release Date: 9/5

Platforms: Xbox One, PC

Developer: 

Publisher: 

 

I got to play the tech test for Gears 5 multiplayer and I have to say it was pretty fun. The gameplay is smooth, bloody, and high octane. This campaign is getting a lot of hype and early positive perception as well. I never really got in to the Gears franchise but this year with it hitting GamePass at launch its a no risk try for all of us! 

 

3. NBA 2k20

Update Date: 8/30

Platforms: PC, Xbox One

Developer: Bloober Team

Publisher: Bloober Team

 

Horror fans will have their pick this week, with in addition to Man of Medan the game adaptation of Blair Witch is also arriving this week! This first person horror game set in Blair Witch universe is set to arrive, and while this genre is not usually my cup of tea, it is coming to Game Pass at launch so that will be a easy try for gamers. 

 

4. Catherine full body 

Release Date: 8/27

Platforms: PS4, Xbox One

Developer: Remedy Entertainment

Publisher: 505 Games

 

I do believe I was one of 5 people who actually really enjoyed Quantum Break. I thought the time bending action shooter was super fun. I enjoyed the story and actually thought the live action cutscenes were unique. Secretly I've been hoping for a sequel for years now and to no avail. However, when Remedy's next game, Control was announced I figured this was the next best thing. Instead of time powers Control features a character who shares my name, Jesse who has telekenetic powers. This game looks incredible and early reviews have been super positive. I can't wait to try it and share with you. 

 

5. world of warcraft classic

Release Date: 8/27

Platforms: PC 

Developer/Publisher: Blizzard

 

WOW has never been a franchise I've played much of but I know how integral it has been to the history of modern games and how huge of a brand it is. Many of my friends who still play WOW are excited to revisit the classic version of WOW. It speaks to the legacy and long lasting nature that has been WOW that it has existed and evolved for so long that the original and current versions can be considered different enough to be a new game. This is the first "un-remaster" I have ever seen, and I think that is pretty cool.

 

6. ancestors: the humankind odyssey

Release Date: 8/27

Platforms: PC 

Developer: Panache Digital Games

Publisher: Private Division 

 

Ancestors is a hard core survival game where you play as early Apes in pre-historic settings. The initial look and premise seemed interesting although not my style, All early reviews of this game that I have read so far are Average to Poor. This game is supposed to come to console in December but with these early poor reviews I doubt that happening. Unless you are a hard core survival genre fan this may be a skip for you. 

 

7. crystar (Now in the west)

Release Date: 8/27

Platforms: PC, PS4, 

Developer: FuRyu, Gemdrops Inc,

Publisher: FuRyu, Spike Chunsoft 

 

Releasing last year in Japan was Crystar, a Japanese action jrpg is now coming to the west on PS4 and PC. This game looks pretty fun and may fill the jrpg void for those not interested in Astral this week or don't have a Switch. I am interested to learn more about this game and maybe check it out. 

 

As always, stay tuned here on Game Infinite News for the latest gaming news! Check back next week for New Game Tuesday!
