For some reason, we get the feeling that one game is going to dominate next week. But that hasn’t stopped a few other titles braving the same release week as Activision’s new IP. Let’s take a look at what’s hitting the stores this week then.
Destiny (PS3, PS4, 360, XO) – MOST ANTICIPATED GAME OF THE WEEK!
It’s no wonder the release schedule is a little light this week as everyone sensibly gets out of the way of Bungie’s new juggernaut. After extensive time with the alpha and beta trials we’re confident that this is going to be one of the biggest smashes this year. Fingers crossed there’s plenty of depth in this ambitious FPSMMO. We have so much past coverage for you to check out including previews, deals, features and videos, be sure to check them out at our Destiny hub.
Infamous: First Light (PS4)
Sucker Punch’s standalone DLC release for Infamous: Second Son is being released on a disc too, which is great for those of us craving a little physicality to our games collection. This title sees you control Fetch in the events before the main game and you’ll get to enjoy the full range of her fantastic neon powers. Be sure to check out Matt’s review for the full lowdown. You can actually download it for a few quid cheaper, but there’s no resale value there obviously. Alternatively, wait a month or two and I reckon you can pick up a copy of this for about £10.
NHL 15 (PS3, PS4, 360, XO)
That sport where they don’t bother playing for some seasons and spend most of the ones they do smashing each other’s teeth out is back. The NHL games haven’t been that popular in the UK since the good old Mega-Drive days. Hell, EA had to stick Madden and NHL on one cartridge at one point to gather enough interest for the US sports over here. But is that about to change? The series has been pretty consistent in recent years and puck thwacking fans will be hoping NHL’s next-gen debut will be worth the wait.
Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Revolution (PS3, 360)
Chances are you already know how interested in this you’ll be. Fans of the anime show can enjoy another not at all identical release with over 100 fighters to brawl with throughout the year until the series becomes even more ultimate in 2015. All joking aside though, the 3D anime visuals are absolutely brilliant to look at. Man, we wish we knew what the hell was going on though.
Release dates correct at time of publishing and are subject to change. That’s life.
