So, if that’s the case, let’s take a look at the latest installment of Games To Look For.

Redfall (PC, Xbox Series) – May 2

Although it hasn’t had the best press lately, Arkane’s open-world vampire FPS will still make its debut on PC and Xbox Series consoles to kick off May. The action title takes players to the once-quiet town of Redfall to hunt and fight hordes of vampires, who have taken the area hostage and isolated it from the outside world. With an array of enemy types to contend with, a collection of heroes to match as and a world that begs to be explored, Redfall is set for its big Xbox launch in May.

Age of Wonder 4 (PC, PS5, Xbox Series) – May 2

If you’ve ever had the desire to rule a fantasy empire of your own design, Triumph Studios’ Age of Wonders 4 may be the game for you. Bringing back the series’ iconic 4X strategy and turn-based tactical combat systems and combining them with better graphics, new missions and challenges, more combat options, better customization systems and more, this game aims to be a top strategy title of the month.

The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom (Switch) – May 12

Few games coming out in 2023 are as anticipated as that of The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom. Designed as a sequel to the immensely popular and critically acclaimed Breath of the Wild, this adventure title takes Link on a journey through the skies as he once again attempts to save Hyrule from destruction while searching for the missing Princess Zelda. This is coming exclusively to Nintendo Switch and is Nintendo’s big May blockbuster.

The Outlast Trials (PC) – May 18

Few horror franchises have struck fear into the heads of its players the way Outlast has, and this May developer Red Barrels wants to get back to what this series does best: prevent you from getting a peaceful night’s sleep. Coming to PC as an Early Access project, The Outlast Trials asks players to tackle a number of terrifying and gruesome therapy challenges, either alone or in a group. Needless to say, don’t expect to feel mindful and balanced after taking these therapy sessions.

Lego 2K Drive (PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox series, Switch) – May 19

While TT Games has long been known as the go-to developer for all things Lego, 2K is getting in on the action, starting with May’s Lego 2K Drive. This family-friendly racing game is all about exploring a destructible blocky world and competing in fast-paced kart-like races, all behind the wheel of a range of acquired or personally designed and created vehicles. If you’re looking for a crazy and fun racing game for the whole family, Lego 2K Drive aims to provide just that.

Horror fans will be happy to know that The Outlast Trials is not the only new scary game in May, as Frictional Games launches its first-perror horror experience, Amnesia: The Bunker . Based in a desolate WWI bunker, players must explore and survive the horrors that run through the concrete halls while collecting tools and solving environmental puzzles in hopes of escaping in one piece.

Miasma Chronicles (PC, PS5, Xbox Series) – May 23

Coming from the developer behind Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden is another action-strategy experience. Known as Miasma Chronicles, this game takes players on an adventure through a post-apocalyptic wasteland, as the duo of survivor Elvis and his robotic older brother, as they seek and discover answers regarding the force that tore the land apart, the Miasma.

After Us (PC, PS5, Xbox Series) – May 23

Environmental awareness and stewardship are common themes in this climate and conservationist era, and this is exactly what Piccolo’s After Us seeks to explore. This game revolves around the spirit of life, Gaia, and will see the powerful entity seeking to explore a devastated world to help save the souls of extinct and often mistreated animals. Designed to be emotionally complex, this game will ask you to restore life to a world that humanity has brutalized.

The Lord of the Rings: Gollum (PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series) – May 25

Although it’s suffered a lot of delays, The Lord of the Rings: Gollum is finally ready to make its debut. Framed around the iconic J.R.R. Tolkien character, this game will see Gollum traveling through different parts of Middle-earth as he tries to find his Precious and take it back under his wing after the One Ring was taken by Bilbo Baggins years earlier. This story is said to be set in parallel with The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring and features a number of appearances by key characters from the fantasy series, including Gandalf the Grey.

System Shock (PC) – May 30

Although the original game is considered one of the most iconic and influential titles of all time, as nearly 30 years have passed since it arrived, many have probably never had the chance to experience the formidable menace posed by the villainous SHODAN. Fortunately, Nightdive Studios has taken it upon itself to completely remake the 1994 action game, with updated graphics, performance, controls, interfaces, sounds, music and more, all while retaining core gameplay and even SHODAN’s original voice actor, for an authentic System Shock experience.

So much for another installment of Games To Look For; be sure to check back in a month to see what June has in store for video game fans.
