games May 2023 – VeryComputer

May is here, the month that usually signals the arrival of the ever-approaching summer, although it is true that this year April has taken the lead in this regard.with temperatures that have exceeded historical records. But we’d better not go into that subject, as there is too much to cut and this is not the time. Instead, we will talk about another heat, which is the one caused by the excitement for the release of the games we have been waiting for a long time.

In this regard, May is a rather promising month. And I say promising, rather than positive, because we do not win for upsets with games that arrive in a sorry state. When we were still finishing processing the disaster of The Last of Us Part 1, again we have seen that having expectations is a bad idea, and that developers and distributors take us for imbeciles. I’m referring, of course, to the disaster that was Star Wars Jedi: Survivor, a highly anticipated game that many of us were really looking forward to, but which sees a great storyline completely undermined by a technical level that is an insult to anyone who spent their money on it.

We are not cynical or unbelievers by birth, it is life that gifts us with the scars necessary for us to start acting in such a way, right? But well, we can’t make an amendment to the totality and disown games that have been on the market for less than a month and that, in that time, have already proven to be up to the task. So, new month, and we return to give a chance to the most interesting releases of the month. We are keeping our fingers crossed in the hope that we will not find new disappointments, will there be any luck this month?

Age of Wonders 4

  • Release date: May 2
  • Platforms: PC, PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S

Age of Wonders is a saga that never fails. Delivery after delivery, Triumph and Paradox are able to enrich a formula that, already since its first installment, knew how to win over players with its fun combination of 4X strategy and turn-based tactical combat. All decisions will count in the destiny of the empire you are trying to forge, will you be able to achieve it… again?

Redfall

  • Release date: May 2
  • Platforms: PC and Xbox Series X|S

I thought, as with the rest of the games in this guide, to give a description about it. But, instead, I’m forced to warn you that, after its first hours on Steam, it already accumulates a large number of negative reviews… effectively, once again, because of the lack of optimization. And it’s a shame, because the premise of open world shooter with vampires was interesting. Anyway, we’ll have to wait for them to fix it.

Ravenlok

  • Release date: May 3
  • Platforms: PC, Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One

Undeniably inspired by Alice in Wonderland, Ravenlok begins when the aforementioned crosses a magic mirror that takes her to a fantasy world, which is at its worst moments due to the desolation sown by the sinister darkness of a tyrannical queen. I haven’t seen images of the mad hatter, but if he were to appear in the middle of a game I wouldn’t be at all surprised.

Best Practices Guide – VeryComputer

Mechabellum

  • Release date: May 11
  • Platforms: PC

We could spend a little time discussing the plot of this game, in which you are the commander of a force of “mechas” on a very distant planet (in fact it’s called Far-Away, imagine if it’s far away) recently colonized, but you and I know that if this title has caught your attention it wasn’t because of the plot, right? I understand you, it’s the same for me, I’m stuck with steel giants facing each other like there’s no tomorrow.

TT Isle Of Man: Ride on the Edge 3

  • Release Date: May 11
  • Platforms: PC, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox X|S Series, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch

Lovers of speed on two wheels, this is probably the title that will interest you most of all this 2023. As you may have already deduced from its name, it takes us to the Tourist Trophy of the Isle of Man, with its more than 60 kilometers (the game map includes more than 200), its 264 curves and a level of demand that makes even the most professional riders pale.

The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom

Return (if you ever left) to the lands of Hyrule, as both the princess and the kingdom need your help to find out what has plunged it into darkness and chaos. Link is never made easy, you know that, but the challenge will certainly be rewarded with every minute of exploring one of the most mythical kingdoms in video game history.

Humanity

  • Release date: May 16
  • Platforms: PC, PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4

If you enjoyed at the time of the mythical Lemmings, I have no doubt that this original proposal will win your interest immediately. And is that, although obviously with differences on that classic, again you have to start controlling legions of creatures (this time humans) to their goal, a place called goal (which I hope has nothing to do with Facebook).

The Outlast Trials

  • Release date: May 18
  • Platforms: PC

For some time now, it seems that developers have decided to compete to see who is able to stop our hearts faster and more effectively. Set in the times of the Cold War, we will have to face (alone or with friends) an organization that recruits, involuntarily, human guinea pigs to test advanced methods of brainwashing and mind control.

I Am Future: Cozy Apocalypse Survival

  • Release date: May 18
  • Platforms: PC

Why have we taken for granted that apocalyptic worlds have to be cold and unpleasant? Far from that traditional premise, this original title proposes us to enjoy the environment, emptier and more natural than ever, rebuild it to our liking, survive without the exhausting pressure of modern life and, who knows? Maybe even prosper and plant the foundations of a new civilization (don’t do it, please…).

LEGO 2K Drive

  • Release date: May 19
  • Platforms: PC, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox X|S Series, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch

Getting your hands on the Trophy of Heaven is not within the reach of everyone, although to get it (or at least try) you will have at your fingertips all the materials (we are talking about LEGO, so, of course, get ready to show your talent with the blocks) to build the car of your dreams, which should also be the one of your rivals’ nightmares.

Amnesia: The Bunker

  • Release date: May 23
  • Platforms: PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One

The creators of the Amnesia saga have already amply accredited their talent when it comes to making us have a bad time, and that we enjoy the hell out of it. In this new installment we find ourselves abandoned in a World War I bunker, an environment that we will have to explore even at the cost of multiple shocks, and with the premise that we must avoid, at all costs, stay in the dark.

Warhammer 40,000: Boltgun

  • Release date: May 23
  • Platforms: PC, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox X|S Series, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch

Warhammer is… well, Warhammer, and as with every previous installment, tons of action await us in Boltgun, which its developers define as “a maelstrom of sprites, pixels and blood”. In the role of a space marine, you will have to cross the galaxy to confront Chaos Special Marines and Chaos Daemons.

The Lord of the Rings: Gollum

  • Release Date: May 25
  • Platforms: PC, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One

Sméagol-Gollum is, in his own right, one of the most interesting characters in Tolkien’s work, as he represents the duality that every human being faces when making decisions, and how these determine his future. And that is precisely what this title presents us with, putting us in the shoes of the tormented creature in his quest to recover the Ring of Power. What path will we follow?

Railway Empire 2

  • Release date: May 25
  • Platforms: PC

Lovers of management simulators… to the train! This title takes us back to the golden age of the railroad, at the beginning of the 19th century, and puts us at the controls of a small railroad company that, with the right management, can become the largest and most important of the time. You will be able to play in Europe and the United States, with very detailed maps of the main regions of both geographies.

System Shock

  • Release date: May 30
  • Platforms: PC

If you remember the original System Shock from 1994, chances are you got goosebumps reading about this release, a complete remake of the classic in which we will find the best of the original title (including the original voice of SHODAN), but with HD graphics, updated controls, a redesigned interface and exclusive sounds and music. Just one look at the trailer will let you see how this absolutely historic title has evolved.
