Start the week with our roundup of the new video games coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch.
It’s a busy week on all console platforms, but it’s the long-awaited PS4 release of Hideo Kojima’s Death Stranding that is getting all of the attention. As you might expect, the critical reception has been mixed, but trending toward the positive. Read our review roundup to find out more.
EA’s Need for Speed: Heat comes to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. We’re not expecting great things, but the game certainly looks like an improvement on the previous two entries in the series.
