Next week is a rather busy week in the gaming industry. Some of the most anticipated games of April all release next week. So this weekend would be the most ideal time to catch up on the games which are seeing updates and sequels next week. Dark Souls III, our most anticipated game of 2016, releases on Tuesday (12 April 2016), as well as a brand new content update for The Division and Destiny. If you are going to do anything this weekend, it should be to play these catchup games:

Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin – PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, PC

Dark Souls III releases in South Africa on Tuesday (12 April 2016), which means that this weekend is the last weekend to gear yourself up and polish up your sword skills before the new game comes out. Dark Souls III follows the same recipe as the previous games in the franchise, meaning it will be brutal, and unforgiving.

Dark Souls II

Dark Souls II is one of the perfect catchup games to help you perfect those dodges and parries. You will be able to get into terms with the movement system and polish up those skills in time for the sequel.

Destiny: The Taken King – PS4, Xbox One, PS3, Xbox 360

Destiny has been in the spotlight over the past few weeks as come 12 April 2106, the game will be getting the much anticipated “Spring” update. The update will bring a whole ton of new content like return of the Prison of Elders, new gear, changes to Crucible, and an increase in light level.

Destiny April Update

If you are wise, then this weekend should be used to try to gather as many engrams as possible so that you can decrypt them in hope of getting some of the new gear.

The Division – PS4 Xbox One, PC

The Division is great, we reviewed it a while back and loved it. Next week the game will be updated with some new content and features. Raids are incoming, and harder challenges in missions. This means that you will need to be as powerful as you could possibly be in order to take on this new content.

The Division

Zombi – Free on PS4

We know Zombi released a while back, but since it is a new month, it is now available to everyone free as a PlayStation Plus incentive. The game was first released on Nintendo Wii U, and soon hit PS4 and Xbox One. The game works extremely well with a controller, and its runs at full 1080p.

Zombi

You play as a survivor during a zombie apocalypse where you now need to try to navigate the town while surviving the threats of the outside. If you die in the game, it is done. You will then reload with no equipment and will have to track down your body and get it all back.
