Release Date: May 5
Prey looks every bit as much of a BioShock reincarnation rather than a Prey (2006) reboot. And that’s what’s getting us excited. Developed by Arkane Studios, creators of both Dishonoured games, this sci-fi first-person shooter has you battling aliens on an abandoned space ship. With protagonist Morgan Wu being able to power-up, and the overall atmosphere and gameplay feeling similar to that of 2K’s 2007 classic, Prey has the potential to be something special.

Release Date: May 16
Being able to face off against Superman as Batman. What more could you want from a game? The DC universe is back again in Injustice 2, this time with a bigger roster of characters to choose from, and the engine that powered Mortal Kombat X. The biggest change, not just from Injustice: Gods Among Us but from fighting games in general, is the added ability to power up your characters over time. It could be a key element in a genre which some believe is becoming more and more irrelevant.

Rime has had a turbulent developmental history, will several cancellations followed by a two year period of silence. This rocky period and its story of boy and animal have drawn parallels with The Last Guardian, but it also seems to have taken inspiration from Zelda, both in visual style and its Link’s Awakening dream-like narrative. If it’s anything like the aforementioned games, then it’s one to look out for.
