Prey (April 11) 

Good morning, Morgan. Prey joins the Xbox Game Pass library tomorrow, taking you from the comfort of your home to the treacherous depths of space. As Morgan Yu, you’ll have to use your wits, weapons, and strange powers to fight the alien threat that has overtaken the Talos I space station. Explore the station, upgrade your skills and abilities, and uncover the secrets of Talos I and the dangers within.

Intuitive and realistic swing mechanics, infinite hours of gameplay, the opportunity to become a pro, and prestigious Club Societies are in store for you in this definitive golfing experience!

Monster Hunter: World (April 18) 

Enter a living, breathing ecosystem where players become hunters who seek and slay ferocious beasts in heart-pounding battles that unfold across the vast, ever-changing terrain. You are a hunter of the Fifth Fleet, tasked with investigating the mysterious behaviors of the Elder Dragons out in the new world. As a hunter, you must use your cunning and skill to track and maneuver targets throughout intense, evolving battles. Venture solo on quests or partner with up to three other hunters online for cooperative play.

The Walking Dead: A New Frontier (April 18) 

Play as Javier Garcia, disgraced former baseball star now fighting to protect those he loves in a world plagued by the undead. As humanity is pushed to a breaking point, Javier finds his fate bound to a young survivor called Clementine. Thrown into conflict with the ruthless New Frontier, they must rely on each other to survive and find the family they’ve lost. Make choices that shape the fate of those around you, engage in thrilling action scenes, and explore beautiful comic book styled environments from “The Walking Dead.”

Life is Strange 2: Episode 2 (April 24) 

“Run. From. Danger.” Brothers Sean and Daniel face another dangerous road during the heart of winter. As Sean continues to train Daniel’s growing telekinetic power, they’re faced with an unexpected road bump – Daniel’s gotten sick and isn’t getting any better. Still far from their destination of Mexico, the brothers have found shelter in snowy northern Oregon. Will this be the solace that finally keeps them safe? Sean’s key rule: “Hide your power” has worked for them up until now, but what happens if they’re turned over to the police?

Resident Evil 5 (April 25) 

The Umbrella Corporation and its crop of lethal viruses have been destroyed and contained, but a new, more dangerous threat has emerged — somewhere in Africa, innocent villagers are transforming into aggressive and disturbing creatures. Featuring online co-op, players can experience this Resident Evil classic as either Chris Redfield or his new partner Sheva Alomar, as the duo must work together to investigate and stop whatever is causing the disturbing turn of events.

I have been waiting for Prey. It has been cheap in the shops for a while, but I just don't want any physical discs anymore.

Monster Hunter World was a massive game recently too?

Monster Hunter World! That's a big game. Have sales dropped off for Capcom on is the financial and player-base incentive that good?

Damn. I'm glad I didn't go for that 6 months for £23.99 offer I shared yesterday. :lol:

Unfortunately it's the one where the series turns to absolute gooseberry fool.

Looking forward to Prey and Monster Hunter. Will play Golf Club as well. Excellent stuff.

I have completed season 1 of TWD but not season 2 (although i have on PS3). If i skip S2 will i miss seeing the consequences of any significant actions from S2, or can i re-familiarize myself with the events of S2 with a wiki and dive straight in? I played through S1 specifically for consequences to carry over to S2, but im not convinced you ever see the results of choices across the seasons.

Any gentle guidance on this would be much appreciated, as if i could cut out a 10 hour game i have played before right now it would be very beneficial!

The final choice of Season 2 is only referenced through Season 3 in flashbacks and has very little significance in the actual game. I'm not certain on this, but I believe if you haven't played S2 you can manually input your choices before starting anyway.

Monster Hunter world is a surprise. Maybe Capcom are hoping enough people will be invested in it by the time it’s taken off Gamepass that they’ll buy a copy.

Ah cool thanks, think it's safe to skip playing through S2 again then. It's only been about 3 years so it's all kinda fresh in my mind still.

No worries. It was one of the most disappointing aspects of season 3, that the major decision you have to make at the end of 2 has no impact at all. Well that and turning Clementine into the least likeable character in the game.

People who haven't played Prey yet really should give it a try. One of my favourite games this generation

I've found it very hard to get into, I'll try it again but the first few hours didn't impress me at all.

The first few hours are slow but what I loved about it was be able to explore the station and the ability to pick abilities (like going human powers only run was fun limit to have) and such, I really had lot of fun with it.

Sounds interesting, i will definitely be giving it a go. It seems to be a game that really polarizes opinion. And those types of games normally go down great with me.

I kinda don't want to play past TWD season 2, it ended perfectly and the fact Season 3 scuppers my choices in the first minute made playing it a chore.

Just like I class the Matrix as not being in a trilogy, I think ill limit TWD to 2 seasons.
