Boasting a luscious open world and more than two hundred hours of content, for many, The Witcher III will keep them going for weeks if not months on end. Once again, players take up their sword and a grimoire of spells, guiding the grizzled hunter Geralt on his latest quest. Expect plenty of beasts to hunt and errands to run as you swim, ride, and sprint through a stunningly detailed continent. Aside from being the final chapter in Geralt’s saga, Wild Hunt is the first game in the series to go truly multiplatform.
Having sown the seeds for its franchise back in 2013, developer Giants Software is now reaping the rewards as Farming Simulator continues to gain popularity. Having spread to a variety of platform including iPhone, 3DS, and Vita, the studio is about to makes its debut on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One with an updated version of Farming Sim 15 (also coming to PS3/360). Aside from multiplayer, new-gen players will be treated to enhanced visuals and an improved physics engine. Ooh arr, indeed.
Rounding out the week we have a new Hyperdimension Neptunia, the third episode of Life Is Strange, as well as Steins;Gate for PlayStation 3 and Vita. Originally released exclusively on Xbox 360 in 2009, Steins; Gate will finally be making its way out of Japan, landing on PlayStation platforms. It’s a visual novel that has since been adapted into an anime. For those interested, that can be found on Netflix with English audio and subs.
