Warhammer 40K: Boltgun

Warhammer 40K: Boltgun might not look like much at first glance but it’s an incredibly charming FPS that takes all the best bits from classic shooters. Set in the absurd Warhammer 40K universe, Boltgun puts you in the shoes of a Space Marine – an armor-clad superhuman warrior-monk. Sounds cool, right?

With its colorful sprite explosions, great level design, and action-packed gameplay, it’s the perfect ode to 90s retro shooters and will hit the spot until the next Doom game comes around. If it clicks with you, there’s a good chance you’d rank it among the best FPS games.

Lightyear Frontier

 

Have you ever wanted a farming sim like Stardew Valley with mechs? Well, Lightyear Frontier is just that.

Combining the oddly satisfying nature of Stardew Valley’s farming with technology and machinery from the likes of PC-exclusive titles like Satisfactory, Lightyear Frontier offers a unique take on the farming sim genre. You’ll work to build your own homestead as you expand your farming enterprise, making use of deep crafting systems, mech upgrades, and resource harvesting as you do so. As an open-world game, you can explore its fertile lands as you seek to clean up its pollution and solve an ancient mystery.

While it’s only launching in early access, it’s certainly one to keep an eye on.

Diablo 4

With Microsoft’s acquisition of Activision Blizzard now done and dusted, the first wave of its legendary titles is making its way to Game Pass, kicking off with Diablo 4.

As the latest and greatest in this iconic series, you’ll battle it out against demons as you experience its surprisingly strong story and level up your chosen Diablo 4 class. Boasting best-in-class combat, it’s hard not to have fun cleaving through monsters and perfecting your build. Don’t let its live-service, level-grind nature fool you, Diablo 4 is one of the best RPG games out there thanks to its palpable atmosphere and excellent writing.

  • Botany Manor – April 9 (Console)
  • Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes – April 24 (Console)
