Next Week’s Releases: Dumbo and Dragons Vs Spandex Soap Stars

It’s another week closer to Christmas, which means another week packed with more games than sense. Highlights include charging around the Himalayas on the back of an elephant with a machine gun, men in spandex, returning to Los Santos, taking on bloody big dragons with a pointy stick and building blocky civilisations in your pocket. We’ve been warming up for Black Friday a bit early by hunting out the very best of cheap game deals too, so be sure to check out the links to the best prices the net has to offer. Keep an eye on our Deals section too for a regular flow of cheap prices for the best of old and new games.

Company of Heroes 2: Ardennes Assault (PC)

World War II strategy fans have been waiting for this expansion for a while and according to Matt’s recent hands-on preview, it’s shaping up rather well. Take a look below.

Far Cry 4 (PS3, PS4, 360, XO, PC)

Ubisoft really need Far Cry 4 to perform after a decidedly rough launch with Assassin’s Creed Unity. On the plus side, we’ve actually played this one ahead of launch and it seems to be on the right track. And by ‘right track’ we mean storming Himalayan fortresses on the back of a bull elephant before escaping via a wingsuit dive off a mountain.

Cheapest Price: Rakuten: £35.99 (PS4, XO)

Grand Theft Auto V (PS4, XO, PC)

Are shinier graphics going to be enough to make you pay full price again for GTAV? Maybe not, but the new FPS mode is looking pretty hard to resist. Rockstar have recently claimed that the long-awaited heist mode will be coming to all platforms soon too. Man this thing looks pretty though, and it’s cheaper than a holiday I suppose.

Cheapest Price: Rakuten: £36.99 (PS4, XO)

Never Alone (PS4, XO, PC)

Fingers crossed this doesn’t get ignored this week in the unfortunate release window shared with some really big hitters as it’s shaping up to be something special. I got a hands-on earlier this year at EGX and can’t wait for the finished product. This digital-only side-scrolling co-op platformer stars a young girl and her arctic fox as they trek through the Alaskan tundra. I’ll have a review next week for you.

21st November

Dragon Age: Inquisition (PS3, PS4, 360, XO, PC)

Next Week’s Releases: Dumbo and Dragons Vs Spandex Soap Stars

Forget about those nasty repetitive dungeons of Dragon Age 2, the third game in the series has blown the walls off with a vast explorable world. Console and PC users can swap between tactical mapping options and free-flowing combat at the touch of a button. This is one of the few fantasy RPGs available on the PS4 and XO and should keep you going nicely until The Witcher III next year.

Cheapest Price: £35.99 Rakuten (PS4, XO).

Escape Dead Island (PS3, 360, PC)

Next Week’s Releases: Dumbo and Dragons Vs Spandex Soap Stars

This Dead Island spin-off shifts the action into the third-person and gives the series a neat cel-shaded makeover. Early hands-on impressions revealed some basic combat options compared to the main series, but fingers crossed we’ll be able to piece together some tastier weapons in the full game. It might be worth waiting for the reviews first for this one.

Cheapest price: Amazon: £26.99 (PS3, 360)

WWE 2K15 (PS4, XO)

Next Week’s Releases: Dumbo and Dragons Vs Spandex Soap Stars

Grappling men in tights finally comes to the new-gen consoles for those of you that like that sort of thing. The scores for the recent last-gen version have been a bit rubbish and the word is that most of the effort has gone into the new versions. Hmm where are the reviews though? Are embargoes hiding something?

Cheapest Price: Amazon: £42 (PS4, XO)

Minecraft (Vita)

Next Week’s Releases: Dumbo and Dragons Vs Spandex Soap Stars

We’re sure you already have this on one of the many formats available already, but if you’d prefer a handheld version with buttons, then maybe the pint-sized option is the one for you. Boomerang has the best deal today too.

Cheapest Price: Boomerang: £12.75

Other releases you might find this week include Sonic Boom: Rise of the Lyric (Wii U), Sonic Boom: shattered Crystal (3DS), Adventure Time: The Secret of the Nameless Kingdom (PS3, 360, 3DS) and the long-delayed Wii U version of Watch Dogs, which by now is much cheaper on all other formats.
