Good morning, everyone, and happy Monday! Thanksgiving is this week, and if you’re a gamer, there’s a lot to be thankful for. Whether you want to enjoy the vampire western of Evil West or get lost in a craze of bullets in Gungrave G.O.R.E, there’s a new game for you. So, without further adieu, here are all the new games releasing this week!
Evil West (Nov. 22)
Starting things off this week, we have Evil West. Developed by Flying Wild Hog and published by Focus Entertainment, this genre-bending epic places bloodsucking vampires right into the wild west. The game sees you take on the role of Jesse Rentier, a veteran vampire hunter working for the Rentier Institute.
After a meeting goes horribly wrong following a devastating vampire attack, you and your partner get thrust on an epic supernatural journey across the sprawling western frontier. Speaking of partners, the game also emphasizes this element by allowing you to experience the journey with a friend in co-op mode. Evil West sinks its teeth into PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One and PC tomorrow.
Just Dance 2023 (Nov. 22)
Busting a move into your home next is Just Dance 2023. Developed and published by Ubisoft, the next evolution of dancing games will help you work off your Thanksgiving calories by dancing along to some of your favorite pop hits. For the first time ever, you can even dance along to the hit BTS song Dynamite, among other chart toppers.
In addition, the new game introduces online multiplayer and personalization options to make online dance parties feel fun and fresh. With 3D immersive worlds and new modes, this title promises to keep you moving year-round. Just Dance 2023 slides onto PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch tomorrow.
Ship of Fools (Nov. 22)
Then, developer Fika Productions and publisher Team17 bring us a charming nautical roguelike in Ship of Fools. In both online and local co-op, you and a friend can set sail and use your cannons to battle various sea monsters. Teamwork is key in order to successfully run between the different cannons on the ship to blast away the creatures and stop the Aquapocalypse.
As you progress, you’ll also unlock new items and artifacts that will help you save the world from impending catastrophe. In addition, you can combine item effects to make for powerful combos to make sure your shipmate doesn’t end up swimming with the fishes. Ship of Fools sails out to PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, Nintendo Switch and PC tomorrow.
Gungrave G.O.R.E (Nov. 22)
This week closes out with a blast in the form of Gungrave G.O.R.E. Developed by Studio IGGYMOB and published by Prime Matter, this blood-soaked shooter places you in the role of the Gunslinger of Resurrection Grave. Throughout this action-packed thrill-ride, you’ll spend hours mowing down enemies in bloody violent fashion.
As you travel across a dark, futuristic version of South-East Asia, you’ll need to utilize both your shooting skills and your martial arts to brutalize your enemies. Fortunately, you’ll come equipped with unlimited ammo Cerberus pistols and a transformable EVO-coffin to unleash devastating combos in this epic story. Gungrave G.O.R.E blasts out to PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X/S and PC tomorrow.
