Something for the Weekend – 04/04/20

It was a mere three weeks ago we were looking forward to the Australian Grand Prix and just four weeks since the last Six Nations game. With a lack of sport each weekend, I’m hoping the Virtual Grand Prix tomorrow will satisfy my appetite. We’ll see!

On the plus side, there’s still a load of great games coming out right now – is there anything you’re picking up?

Teflon brought us the sole preview of the week, which was for the Archaeology skill update for RuneScape. Here, players will be able to dig to uncover the history behind the Elder Gods through artefacts and materials.

He also returned to Zombie Army Trilogy as it’s now out for Nintendo Switch, and while a solid port he came away with mixed feelings over returning to simpler times for co-op zombie sniping. Zombie Army 4 just pushed the series gameplay forward so much!

Meanwhile, Jim played Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord as it entered into Early Access on PC. Is this the sequel that fans of the series have been waiting for?

Other than that, What We Played featured Resident Evil 3, Mount & Blade II & Animal Crossing.
