It has been a great week for gaming this past week, and this weekend will be even better as there are some really great experiences and these are some of the games to play right now:
The Witness – PC, PS4
The Witness might not seem like everyone’s cup of tea, but if you want a game that will challenge your mind and test your will, then this is it. The game features over 600 puzzles set on breathtakingly beautiful island as you track through it and uncover its secrets. No two puzzles are the same, and each are designed to be intellectually challenging.
We will have a full review up of the game soon.
The Division Beta – Xbox One, PS4, PC
This weekend, the Division beta is taking place. It is already running on Xbox One, and will commence on PC and PS4 at 14:00 (SA time) today. The beta is pretty big and Ubisoft has stated that it will pack quite some content into it. The download sits at 28GB, so if you are planning on getting into it, you need to first pre-order it on the PlayStation Store or on the website, and secondly make sure you will be able to download the beta before it goes offline on Monday afternoon.
Resident Evil Origins Collection – PS4, Xbox One, PC
The Origins Collection is a pack of both Resident Evil HD Remaster, and Resident Evil 0 HD. Both the games have received complete visual facelifts with improved textures, character models and environments. The games have also been remastered with 5.1 surround sound and new audio recordings.
There has never been a better remaster of a Resident Evil game than this, the games look amazing, but still maintain their classic gameplay.
Rise of the Tomb Raider
Remember that game that we awarded our Game of the Year 2015? Well, the game launches today on PC, with what seems to be better visuals than that of the Xbox One. For those who missed out on the Xbox One version, this would be the perfect opportunity to experience one of the best games that I have ever played.
Rise of the Tomb Raider follows Lara Croft on the search for immortality. She needs to face her past and her demons as she tries to uncover the truth behind the Prophet, a man said to hold the secret to everlasting life.
