1st March – PS4, PS5, Xbox One Xbox Series X|S, PC
It’s a great time to be into open-world RPGs. In this sci-fi sequel, you’ll explore the planet of Magalan with unprecedented freedom. The NPC-packed world is huge, hand-crafted, and complete with unique factions vying for control of the post-apocalyptic landscape.
And don’t worry if you haven’t played the first game in the series, the engaging new story of Elex II is the perfect place to start. Just keep in mind that all of your actions will have consequences, and a world of moral decisions will await you…
Gran Turismo 7
4th March – PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5
Whether you’re a competitive racer, an arcade fan, or an automotive gearhead, Gran Turismo 7 promises to satisfy your level of personal passion for cars. It’s also promised to be better than ever before. “Gran Turismo 7 builds on 22 years of experience to bring you the best features from the history of the franchise,” publisher Sony boasts. Look for GT7 to launch exclusively for “the blue team” later this month.
Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Booster Pack
18th March – Nintendo Switch
One of the best-selling games of all time is getting even better. If the realistic racing experience of Gran Turismo 7 isn’t your thing, the chaotic, friendship-ruining competition might be a better fit. Yes, it’s technically DLC, but yes it adds about a game’s worth of content. Here’s what’s included:
A total of 48 remastered courses from throughout the Mario Kart™ series are racing to the Mario Kart 8 Deluxe game as paid DLC*. Courses include those based on real-world locations like Paris Promenade and Tokyo Blur from the Mario Kart Tour game in addition to nostalgic favorites like N64 Choco Mountain and Wii Coconut Mall!
25th March – PS5, PC
Under the guidance of Resident Evil director Shinji Mikami comes a new IP. This time, with more of an action-oriented perspective.
In Ghostwire, the sprawling metropolis of Tokyo has been “overrun by deadly supernatural forces after 99% of the city’s population vanished.” It’ll be up to you to “use a powerful arsenal of spectral abilities to fight the paranormal threat and unravel the mystery behind the mass disappearance.”
Ghostwire: Tokyo was originally slated for release on PS5 and PC only; however, thanks to Microsoft’s recent acquisition of developer Tango Gameworks, it will arrive on Xbox soon after.
Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands
25th March – PS4, PS5, Xbox One Xbox Series X|S, PC
Yes, that’s the Tiny Tina from Borderlands; but Wonderlands is not simply a sequel. This new looter shooter (with RPG elements) is an entirely new standalone story. And while it may be inspired by Gearbox’s wildly popular Borderlands franchise, Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands is set in a brand new fantasy environment (albeit with plenty of nods to the Borderlands past). There is also a star-studded cast of talent involved; including Andy Samberg, Will Arnett, Wanda Sykes, and of course Ashly Burch!
