A new month brings a fresh batch of games for you to keep an eye on, then purchase, before placing on the shelf or in a digital library only to never actually find the time to play them because of life and all that\u2026 Whether you\u2019re a PC elitist or the casual family man forced to involve the kids in your precious gaming time, here are the best and most promising titles launching in April 2018.\r\n\r\n\r\nYou'll also like:\r\nYour Must-See Films for April 2018\r\nPlay This Next - A Way Out\r\nWe Interview Far Cry 5 Creative Director Dan Hay\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nhttps:\/\/www.youtube.com\/watch?v=eQ3CWVMumWs\r\nExtinction - 10th April 2018 - PC, PS4, Xbox One\r\nExtinction is set in a war-torn world; only the enemies are ravenous monsters standing 150 feet tall. You play as one of the world\u2019s last defenders, a warrior named Avil equipped with the skill, speed and strength to oppose an endless wave of creatures and prevent a fate worse than death: Extinction.\r\n\r\nExtinction promises a deep story campaign, dynamic side missions and skill-based combat. Plus we\u2019re expecting plenty of replay value through the online multiplayer modes Skirmish and Extinction, which pits you against endless waves of ogres and their minions.\r\n\r\nhttps:\/\/www.youtube.com\/watch?v=Rzq_rFXOJh0\r\nYakuza 6: The Song of Life \u2013 17th April 2018 - PS4\r\nThe sixth main entry in the long-running Japanese crime drama is kind of like the classic beat-em-up Streets of Rage but in 3D. Pair this with a deep, occasionally convoluted story, and distractions like Sega arcade games and Karaoke bars, and you will realise there\u2019s plenty of fun to be had on the streets of Japan.\r\n\r\nThe reviews are already out for this one, and the consensus is that it\u2019s great! If you\u2019re into it, Sega recently remade the first Yakuza game for PS4 and a remake of the second entry is expected later this year. There\u2019s plenty of Yakuza goodness to go around.\r\n\r\nhttps:\/\/www.youtube.com\/watch?v=gOE2BVRCUkM\r\nGod of War \u2013 20th April 2018 - PS4\r\nThe reboot of the long-running series finally lands this month. With a new over-the-shoulder perspective and a Norse setting, you can expect a familiar, yet original take on God of War.\r\n\r\nIt\u2019s a new beginning for Kratos. Living as an ordinary man, outside the shadow of the gods, he has a new purpose and his son by his side. Kratos must fight for survival as powerful forces threaten to disrupt the new life he\u2019s created. Expect a more in-depth story than the previous God of War games and combat than channels games like Dark Souls and The Last of Us.\r\n\r\nSome fans are concerned that the new style won\u2019t capture the cinematic feel of the previous games. Whichever way it goes, God of War will undoubtedly be a huge hit for Sony, just like all of its first-party titles. Except for Knack. That game was no good.\r\n\r\nhttps:\/\/www.youtube.com\/watch?v=P3Bd3HUMkyU\r\nNintendo Labo \u2013 20th April 2018 \u2013 Nintendo Switch\r\nWhile Sony and Microsoft pursue life-like graphics and deep and immersive experiences, Nintendo opts for cardboard robots and musical instruments.\r\n\r\nEach Nintendo Labo kit transforms modular sheets of cardboard that interact with the Nintendo Switch console and Joy-Con controllers into interactive creations called Toy-Con. From a piano to a motorbike, a robot and more, you will have fun discovering how the technology works and even invent new ways to play with each creation.\r\n\r\nDay one will see three separate kits launch: Toy-Con Robot, Variety Kit and Customisation Kit. Nintendo Labo is the perfect one to play with the kids these school holidays. Did you expect anything less from Nintendo?\r\n\r\nhttps:\/\/www.youtube.com\/watch?v=UxTxUL_8VkA\r\nFrostpunk \u2013 24th April 2018 - PC\r\nFrostpunk is perfect for players who fondly remember Age of Empires and Sim City. It\u2019s set in a frozen world that relies on steam-powered technology. As the city ruler, it\u2019s your job to manage both the inhabitants and the infrastructure.\r\n\r\nLeader\u2019s face challenges and must frequently question their morality and the basic foundation of what we consider an organised society. Optimisation and resource management clash with empathy and thoughtful decision-making. While city and society management consume most of the ruler\u2019s time, at some point exploration of the outside world is necessary to understand its history and present state. Will you allow child-labour? How will you treat the sick and wounded? Yes and cast them out!\r\n\r\nhttps:\/\/www.youtube.com\/watch?time_continue=76&v=p5iH-uKHmfo\r\nSouth Park: The Fractured But Whole \u2013 24th April 2018 - Nintendo Switch\r\nThe kids are playing superheroes. Cartman is determined to turn Coon and Friends into the biggest superhero franchise of all time. However, the villainous Professor Chaos emerges with an evil plan to eliminate Coon and Friends. The heroes need to work as a team to fight the chaos and terror that that grips the town.\r\n\r\nWe played this one when it landed on PS4 late last year and loved it. Whether it\u2019s Morgan Freeman teaching you how to use your farts as a weapon, or fighting a drunk Randy Marsh over his car keys, this game is hilarious. Now that it\u2019s on Nintendo Switch you can offend everyone on your daily commute. A must have for South Park fans.\r\n\r\n\r\nYou'll also like:\r\nBurnout Paradise Remastered: Still the King of All Racers\r\nSet Sail with the Sea of Thieves Limited Edition Xbox Controller\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nHave you subscribed to Man of Many?
