After the flood of quality new games that came out this week (Forza 6, PES 16, NHL 16), next week is a bit less rich with new titles on the first sight, but there are a couple of titles that will get the attention of gamers.
The first title in today’s list is the leading soccer title today and for what we have seen from the demo, it will remain at the throne. The graphic is pretty much the same, but there are numerous new animations and gameplay tweaks that will bring just enough variation and improvements to keep FIFA a few steps in front of the PES. The gameplay is much slower from last year’s entry, passes feel more precise and natural and the ball physics is much improved. You can start playing FIFA on September 22 on PS4, PS3, Xbone, Xbox 360 and PC. Improve your skills with our quick Fifa tips and tricks guide.
From the creators of Amnesia: the Dark Descent, one of the scariest and most upsetting horror games in recent years comes SOMA, another attempt to make you scream at the monitor while playing with your earphones in a dark room. This time, the main playground for your darkest nightmares will be set at the bottom of Atlantic in a research facility gone dark. The best description for what is waiting for you is the one from the game’s Steam page: “Enter the world of SOMA and face horrors buried deep beneath the ocean waves. Delve through locked terminals and secret documents to uncover the truth behind the chaos. Seek out the last remaining inhabitants and take part in the events that will ultimately shape the fate of the station. But be careful, danger lurks in every corner: corrupted humans, twisted creatures, insane robots, and even an inscrutable omnipresent A.I.” Like in the Amnesia, there is no fighting; either you hide, run or die. The graphics look excellent and we have no doubt that the overall sense of fear and helplessness will be on a high level. If you like horror you can delve into this nightmare on September 22. The game comes out for PC and PS4.
Do you like football? And how about Warhammer and its turn based combat? Well, Blood Bowl mixes the two together making an interesting turn-based football game. You can choose Reikland Reavers, a famous team from the first game, and bring them back to glory in the new single player campaign, or make your unique team created from all of the eight races from Warhammer universe and head on into the multiplayer. The game has completely new graphics engine, along with many enhancements in multiplayer modes making it really pretty and potentially interesting. Start your blood bowl on September 22 (PS4, Xbone and PC).
There is also The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing: Final Cut coming next week. It is basically a definitive edition of the Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing, an action RPG set in the vampire-filled Van Helsing universe. This definitive edition brings all of the add-ons, together with every patch, and it will be free for all of the owners of the original game. It is a solid action RPG, a little bit rough on the edges but nevertheless quite entertaining, you can check it out on PC on September 23.
