Upcoming list of video games to be released in March for Xbox One

Hi GOATers! As we come to the end of February, we have come up with our upcoming games for March. I think FPS lovers will be in for a treat during this month with many popular titles being released.


Without further ado, presenting our March list! 

10. The Park (PC, PS4, XO) by Funcom

 

Release date: Q1 2016
Mode: Single-player (Adventure horror)
Price: $12.99 on SteamXO/PS4: TBD

If you love horror games and also adventure ones, get your hands on this game. The game first introduces Lorraine as a loving mother who is in search for her child, Callum who is lost in a deserted amusement park. 

Gameplay

You can search and pick up items along the way that add to the clues that would lead to Callum. The game also allows you to sit on scary rides and call Callum's name out. It puts you in a first-player situation and may cause some players to experience psychological distress if not comfortable with horror games.

9. SuperHot (PC, XO) by SuperHot team

 


Release date: March 2016 

Mode: Single-player (First-person shooter)
Price: PC is $47 on SteamXO/PS4: TBD (there is no preorder)

Superhot has garnered quite a bit of attention with gamers ever since its Steam greenlight campaign and kickstarter campaign. Now, after around one year of development, the game will be finally released. It features a streamlined graphics where the surroundings is all white and enemies are red. 

Gameplay

 

You play a character that receives a new game, "Superhot.exe" from a friend where you need to shoot your enemies down through the game. You as the player can pick up weapons and use them as you move along the areas. Time only moves when you shoot or when you move which gives you time to access your situation and dodge incoming shots. 

The price of death is great. If you get shot, you immediately restart the level. But fear not, you will have tonnes of different weapons at your disposal and your fast paced movement speed in order to dodge and reach the next level. 

Modes

 

There are 3 modes to play the game: First, is the normal campaign mode where you play according to the story line. Second is the "endless" mode, where you are placed with an endless stream of enemies and must last as long as you can. Third, is the challenge mode where you can place certain restrictions on a level and re-run it. 

*Fun fact: The kickstarter gained over $250,000 in funds.

The Witch Hunter, Empire Soldier, Dwarf Ranger, Waywatcher & Bright Wizard all have difference skills and are either ranged or melee. The game allows up to 3 players to join you in your quest to kill the Skavens -who are evil, monster mice. 

Similar to other MMOs, by killing enemies, you will gain Experience points and new loot for your gear upgrades. And as usual, the more difficult the enemies, the better the loot. However, that's where the similarities stop. In Warhammer Vermintide, players will be bombarded with horde of enemies and must move across the map to get to the next level. Little low leveled enemies can overwhelm players with their great numbers and when paired with high leveled enemies can cause a bit of difficulty.
