Top New Video Games Out On Switch, PS4, Xbox One, And PC This Week -- May 24-30, 2020

It's a good week for Switch owners.

7 Comments

This is a great week to revisit some games you may have already played. Mortal Kombat 11 is getting an action-packed epilogue with the Aftermath expansion, and Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition has new story content on Nintendo Switch as well. That's not the only game making a comeback on Switch, either. 2K is launching a trio of big game bundles: BioShock: The Collection, the Borderlands Legendary Collection, and the XCOM 2 Collection. The adventure continues in Minecraft Dungeons and Shantae and the Seven Sirens too.

Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath -- May 26

Available on: PS4, Xbox One, PC, Switch

Aftermath picks up right where the story left off, with Liu Kang setting out to create a new timeline. A new timeline is a great place to introduce new characters, and MK 11 is adding Fujin, Sheeva, and even Robocop, voiced by original actor Peter Weller. If you don't want to spend money on the new story and characters, good news: May 26 is also when a free update drops for all players. This adds new stages and brings back Friendships.

It might have the look of Minecraft, but this spin-off is not about resource gathering and crafting. Instead, it gives you randomly generated dungeons to explore as you solve puzzles and fight box-shaped bad guys. There are no classes here since you can choose any gear you want, and you can explore with friends in four-player co-op. Even better, Game Pass subscribers on Xbox One and PC can jump in on day one.

The fifth game in the Shantae series originally launched on Apple Arcade, and now the whole adventure is coming to consoles and PC. Expect the usual platforming and combat, plus new monster transformations and abilities. If you have a PS4 Pro, Xbox One X, or capable PC, you can experience Seven Sirens in 4K.

Xenoblade Chronicles is a cult-classic RPG on Wii and 3DS, and now Switch owners are getting a chance to experience the story. If you've already played the original, there's still something fresh for you too thanks to a new epilogue. Of course, the graphics and music have been greatly improved too.

Not even a clip. A link to a 45 minute interview, for those who think they can stand William Eyelash for that long. And a video from another article. And ads for shitty cell phone cart racers. Way to go, guys.

Can you make an ESO Greymoor review fast please? I loved Summerset but Elsweyr was meh in my opinion. I really don't know if I should get it or not. Going back to Skyrim sounds good, fighting vampires too... OK I'll probably join the vampires if I can. But is it Dawnguard all over again? I have to know.

That's an insane set of gameplay, in total...

Granted, I've already played 80% of ths above, but a new Shantae game is always welcome.
