Following Vincent and Leo as they initial try to mangle out of jail and afterwards try to stay on a run and giveaway while vital their lives, you’ll mostly have to work in tandem with a other player, either that’s giving them a boost by a window or formulating a distraction.

Guacamelee 2

Platforms: PS4 – Release date: “Coming Soon-ish”

We don’t know a outrageous volume about Guacamelee 2, though given how glorious a Mexican-themed Metroidvania strange was, a proclamation trailer from Paris Games Week final year was a acquire surprise.

A weird and disfigured take on a presence genre, We Happy Few was introduced to many by a eye throwing E3 trailer a integrate years ago, as a actor stopped holding their Joy pills and starts to see a dystopian universe for what it unequivocally is.

There’s elements of role-playing, survival, rogue-likes and some-more as we try a city of Wellington Wells and try to shun a amicable fall that you’ll be means to see all around you. The creepiest aspect will positively be carrying to ramble turn and explore, saying a grave existence while perplexing to fake that you’re still holding your Joy.

We Happy Few has been in Early Access and Xbox Game Preview for utterly some time now, though is streamer for a full recover in April, that is when PlayStation owners will get to excavate into a trippy world.

Howling nearby to accessible creatures can move them to your side, vouchsafing we finish certain tasks or training a pup new abilities for we to use.

It’s an darling looking game, and one I’m certain many people have kept and eye on given it was announced behind in 2016.

That’s all for another entrance in Ones to Watch. Tomorrow we’ll be branch to a height that’s entrance adult on being only one year old, though is already a organisation favourite for many gamers. What’s in store for a Nintendo Switch in 2018? Well, we’ll let we know!
