The PC has a massive list of games coming out in May 2015. The PS4 and Xbox One too have an impressive set of games, but none as lengthy as what’s releasing in the month of May for the PC. Therein, lies the problem. How do know which ones are worth picking out?
Here are the PC Games releasing in May 2015, that’s worth spending your money on:
There’s no doubt that Wolfenstein: The Old Blood and The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is on everyone’s list, irrespective of if you’re a PC, PS4 or Xbox One gamer. So those 2 games are certainly a must have.
Make sure you have the right system requirements for Witcher 3: Wild Hunt when it’s out on May 19th.
Wolfenstien: The Old Blood will certainly look great on the PC, we’ve no doubt about it, if the trailers are anything to go by. Watch for this on the 5th of May.
Also don’t miss out on Project CARS, as it’s going to be one heck of a ride. The crowd-funded, community-driven racing title is finally ready to arrive this month on current generation consoles and the PC. Project CARS releases on 12th of May. Prepare for some gorgeous visuals and realistic racing action.
Now on to the slightly more intriguing titles…
(not that the above aren’t interesting enough)
Axiom Verge is finally coming to the PC. The hit Metroidvania game (which really ventures closer to simply being a Metroid title) is coming to PC after its PS4 and PS Via debut. If you’ve played it earlier, you’ll know what a blast this game is, now that’s it out for the PC, it absolutely belongs in your library. It provides plenty of nostalgia flashbacks for old-school Metroid fans and a thorough lesson of what the new generation of gamers are currently missing.
Axiom Verge releases on 14th of May.
The next game really blew my mind. It’s called High Strangeness and it’s a hybrid of 8 and 16 bit games – a 12 bit adventure.
The inspiration of the game comes from many Action-Adventure and RPG games of yesteryear. The game’s core ability is to switch between 8 and 16 bit worlds and the player uses their generational differences to solve puzzles and explore the universe. Throughout the game your pixel art perspective of the world will be interrupted by visions of watercolor illustrations that shed some light on your mysterious surroundings. The chiptune soundtrack by Dino Lionetti and Rich Vreeland backs up the aesthetic of the world and sets the mood for strange happenings.
High Strangeness releases on the 6th of May for the PC via Steam, and will get a Wii U release as well.
Moving from Beta to final release is Galactic Civilizations III which finally hits the PC on May 14th.
One game I’m most excited for is Technobabylon. A cyberpunk adventure game from the studio that brought you Gemini Rue and Blackwell! The year is 2087. Genetic engineering is the norm, and an omnipresent AI powers the city. Take control of three citizens of this world as they struggle to understand a deadly conspiracy. The game looks and plays great, and has that retro vintage feel to it. Don’t miss this game!
Technobabylon will be available on Steam on the 21st of May.
and finally last, but not least, getting a release along side the PS4 will be Magicka 2 for the PC.
The game releases for both platforms on the 26th of May. If you’ve played the original Magicka, you’ll know that it was a blast and nearly threw everything in the face of adventure games you imagined. This is a great addition to your PC collection for the month of May 2015.
Well, that’s the list folks. PC gamers will have a hard time deciding what to buy, but hopefully we’ve made this a little easier.
