PS4 game news: Games in May 2021 Posted on 05/03/2021 at 5:50 pm, updated 03/05/2021 at 5:46 pm After a month of April, interrupted by the releases of Outriders, Oddworld: Soulstorm or with the launch of NieR Replicant version 1.22, the PlayStation 4 is doing it again to bring us a particularly busy month in April. The program therefore includes the return of the flagship saga of the survival horror, a major expansion for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, the arrival of a digital board game from Warhammer or the start of a Legendary Edition for one of the best science fiction video game trilogies.
Resident Evil Village
Resident Evil, the master of survival horror, is celebrating its comeback on May 7th with an eighth episode entitled Resident Evil Village. This new adventure, which puts the player in the shoes of Ethan Winters (hero of Resident Evil VII) again, invites you to explore a dark village in FPS view and face a horde of new monsters. Vampires, mermaids, werewolves, ghosts … all these strange beings will not hesitate to stick a spade in your wheels when you cross this new playground. Also note that the title comes with The Mercenaries, an arcade mode, and Resident Evil Re: Verse, a multiplayer mode that will be available this summer.
Hood: Outlaws & Legends
On May 10, it’s Hood: Outlaws & Legends’ turn to make its PlayStation 4 debut. The title Focus Home Interactive and Sumo Digital gives you the opportunity to carry out finely crafted raids in a medieval universe, notably by attacking enemy fortresses in the company of other players. However, you and your friends are not alone in the field! Another team of players will try to steal the show from you while patrols controlled by AI (Artificial Intelligence) stand guard. Before starting a game, of course, players have the choice between several character classes (Ranger, Hunter, Brawler, Mystic) with unique skills. Therefore, in order to achieve your goals, it is necessary to work together. Release date: May 10, 2021 Also available on: PC PS5 PS4 Xbox Series ONE
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla: Wrath of the Druids
We expected it in April, but in the end the first major expansion, newly postponed for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, will land on May 13th. Obviously, the program of this extension does not change. With The Wrath of the Druids, players can visit new lands, namely Ireland, in the company of Eivor, your favorite Viking. In these new lands the player will try to “unravel the secrets of an ancient and mysterious druid cult” by exploring haunted forests. As a reminder, this DLC is obviously included in the game’s Season Pass, but the latter can also be purchased individually when it officially launches.
Mass Effect: Legendary Edition
In just a few days, May 14th, the inescapable Commander Shepard is making his comeback! Yes, the Mass Effect trilogy is brought together in a Legendary Edition that doesn’t make any compromises. This playable edition in 4K not only combines all the DLCs of these three excellent games, but also offers players the opportunity to discover the galaxy in a new light: the textures as well as the various models have been redesigned, the user interface has been modernized and the gameplay, in particular that of the first opus, has been checked and corrected. Now aiming is more responsive, melee attacks are no longer automated, skills have been balanced, and touch lets you sprint.
Subnautica: Below zero
After Subnautica’s success with gamers, it only made sense for Unknown Worlds, the creators of the license, to tackle a sequel or new content in general. This is where Below Zero comes in, a standalone version already available for early access on PC that gives you the opportunity to expand your survival game by setting out again to explore planet 4546B. Of course, this new underwater adventure gives you the chance to discover new biomes that are freezing cold, but also to meet new species that won’t hesitate to attack you or, worse, devour you with just a small bite. Release date: May 14, 2021 Also available on: PC PS5 PS4 ONE Switch
Let’s move on to survival a few more lines! Yes, Subnautica: Below Zero isn’t the only production looking to bring a new life to consoles, as Rust, the title of Facepunch, is also entitled to its Console Edition on May 21st. The latter obviously combines everything that makes the game successful on PC! It therefore once again gives you the opportunity to survive alone or with friends by building shelters, strengthening your arsenal, preparing great dishes, participating in raids and looting or even getting encrusted in clashes. Opponents are two teams of players.
It’s time to get out your favorite sportswear because the next title to watch out of the corner of your eye on PlayStation 4 in May is Knockout City. Electronic Arts’ multiplayer creation, first unveiled during a Nintendo Direct earlier this year, caught our eye on our first preview. It must be said that the game Dodgeball provides the players with colorful levels that are pleasing to the eye, as well as clashes for all spectators and accessible and providing good gaming sensations. Of course, different modes will be available starting with the game’s Chaos mode. KO This is similar to “Everyone For Himself” or the different game modes that can be played as a team (3 versus 3 KO, 4 versus 4, and Rush to the Diamonds).
Biomutant, the title of Experiment 101 published by THQ Nordic, was first announced years ago in 2017 and makes us wait a long time … but that wait is finally coming to an end! The open world action RPG will be available on PlayStation 4 on May 25th. It will tell us the story of a certain rocket raccoon who does not hesitate to change its shape to reach areas that were once inaccessible, to eliminate enemies, carry out melee or ranged attacks. Obviously, these mutations are not our hero’s only weapons, as he can also build his own arsenal. In addition, the game Experiment 101 already promises a lot of customization options. Retro gaming enthusiasts will be delighted to know that the Capcom Arcade Stadium build, already available on Nintendo Switch, will hit PlayStation 4 next May 25th. Yes, Street Fighter II, or even Bionic Commando, as the production is supposed to make you relive the highlights of the arcade (again) by offering you old school titles like Ghouls’n, which spell out video game history between 1984 and 2001 have shaped Geister, Vulgus, Final Fight or Strider. The application, which gives you a great coating that imitates arcades, a system of storage and many parameters (unlimited life), comes for free from a certain year 1943: The Battle of Midway. Players who then want to expand the experience can purchase three additional packs of ten games each. Each pack costs € 15.
Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Storm Ground
To complete this list, we encourage you to move on to the next iteration of Warhammer. Indeed, the timeless miniatures will re-enter the gaming world with Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Storm Ground. Using the board game’s codes, the title gives you the opportunity to choose from three different factions (Stormcast, Nighthaunt and Maggotkin) to get into the game and take part in turn-based strategic confrontations. Note that the Games Workshop title includes a procedurally generated single player campaign to ensure good replayability.
