The Surge
The Surge

RPG 2017

An action RPG set in a dark science-fiction world, developed by the German team Deck 13 – the co-creators of Lords of the Fallen. The story shows a dystopian vision of the future, where human technology turned against its creators, plunging the planet into chaos. We play as an ordinary citizen, who, like everyone else, uses the achievements of modern technology and the capabilities offered by fully customizable exoskeletons. The gameplay draws from such the famous Dark Souls series and is characterized by significant difficulty level and melee combat focus. What sets The Surge apart is a unique character development system. It is closely connected to combat, allowing us to seize opponent’s technology and gear, and then mount it on our own exoskeleton.

Crush Online
Crush Online

Strategy TBA

Crush Online is an MMO developed by Korean studio JoyImpact. The game is focused on dynamic PvP duels, evoking games such as League of Legends or Dota 2. Crush Online is set in a fantastic world of Gaia, inhabited by three factions fighting for influence. At the beginning of the game, players choose one of these and create their avatar, which will then be developed throughout the game. The recipe of the duels is similar to most popular MOBA games; some NPCs help the player during battles as they divert enemies from attacking player’s defense towers. A curious addition to the gameplay is the fact that the gameworld exists permanently, in the sense that – contrary to other games – it constantly changes even after a match ends. As in any respectable MMO, here we can join guilds, forge alliances and take part in battles for control over a given territory. The award for this are different kinds of loot and powerful character upgrades.

Dead Rising 4
Dead Rising 4

Action December 2016

The fourth installment in a series of zombie-themed, third-person action games developed by Capcom. The story campaign brings a continuation to the storylines presented in the first installment. The player assumes the role of Frank West (appeared first in the original game) - a photographer trapped in a town overrun by hordes of zombies. During the Christmas period, he has to somehow survive through a period of several days, waiting for help to arrive. The player explores an open game world and completes many story-based missions and side quests focusing mainly on exterminating large numbers of undead. In combat, the player makes use of everything within the protagonist's reach. However, all the weapons get damaged and destroyed relatively fast, which forces the protagonist to experiment all the time - this means building more and more sophisticated weapons. Apart from the story mode, Dead Rising 4 offers a co-op experience as usual. In this mode, the players face subsequent hordes of zombies side by side.

The Last Guardian
The Last Guardian

Adventure 26 October 2016

Third-person action adventure game created by the ex-members of Team Ico, led by Fumito Ueda. Previously, the studio had made their name known by giving us two of the most original and highest ranking titles ever to be released on PlayStation 2: Shadow of the Colossus and Ico. Their new game retains similar artwork style and equally unique atmosphere. You play as a young boy trying to escape the guards pursuing him. However, it is not him, but a giant, griffin-like creature named Trico, who is the central character in this story. The little protagonist is able to climb, jump, and squeeze through holes between rocks, but in some cases he needs help from the griffin, who can remove larger obstacles or carry the boy into seemingly inaccessible places. The authors put much emphasis on the character's interactions with Trico and the creature’s artificial intelligence, as he has his own individual character and reacts differently depending on the situation.

Terraria: Otherworld
Terraria: Otherworld

Arcade 2017

Terraria: Otherworld is the second part of the popular sandbox platform game, developed by Andrew Spinks and his independent studio Re-Logic. In the game, referred to as “two dimensional Minecraft”, we are given the ability to shape a randomly generated world without restrictions and to create a number of useful tools, utility objects and structures via its crafting system. Terraria 2 has a similar, old-school layout and similar mechanics as the original, but the game features also a huge number of changes and innovations that were not implemented by the author in the first installment of the series. First of all, players were given an infinite number of worlds at their disposal, each representing a different biome, e.g. woodland, arctic, desert, or lunar. Furthermore, character development system, object finding and creation, as well as the interface of the game, were modified. The game traditionally focuses on cooperation of many players, what allows them to collectively raise buildings or fight encountered monsters.
