Like a fat stack of syrup-soaked pancakes, this week’s video game line-up is looking rather appetising. Although not packed to the rafters, there’s still a diverse spread on offer, including a couple of sequels as well as one hotly-anticipated PlayStation 4 exclusive – Ready At Dawn’s The Order: 1886.
- Total War: Attila [PC]
- Hand of Fate [PS4]
- Deadman’s Cross [PSV]
- Paparazzi [PS4]
- Pillar [PS4]
- Q’Bert Rebooted [PS4 | PS3 | PSV]

- American Truck Simulator [PC]
- Dead Or Alive 5: Last Round [PS4 | XB1]
For many who visit the site, The Order: 1886 will no doubt be the one main stand-out in this week’s roll call. Announced at Sony’s E3 press conference back in 2013, the cinematic steampunk-esque shooter has been flitting in and out of the headlines non-stop. Aside from its jaw-dropping graphics, The Order has wowed onlookers with its unconventional arsenal of weapons as well as its focus on mythology and the supernatural. For those who don’t know, developer Ready At Dawn has previously worked on existing PlayStation franchises, having released two God of War prequels on PSP. Be sure to keep an eye out for when our review goes live.
PC gamers also have a couple of notable releases to look forward to. If you’re not the sort who will enjoy American Truck Simulator then Total War: Attila may tickle your fancy. As the name suggests, it allows players to live out their historic strategy fantasies, leading one of several factions during the death throes of the Roman Empire.
Aside from your regular dose of digital gaming goodness, we also have Dead or Alive 5: Last Round. This latest version from Tecmo KOEI comes packed with a fresh batch of in-game content and has also received a slight makeover. Given the slight dearth in the number of current-gen fighters, Dead or Alive’s return will no doubt keep some players bound over before next month’s Mortal Kombat X.
