Retaining the core of the text-based classic, the reimagined version features point-and-click controls with outcome probabilities ripped straight from the original title.

However, this time around, you can experience the fantastic journey with fully realized 3D visuals designed by the legendary Roberta Williams. From the awe-inspiring dragon to the myriads of dwarves itching to throw knives at you, this game provides tons of interesting encounters from the original game, complete with charming visuals.

Featuring the likes of Michael Madsen, Danny Trejo and Chuck Norris, Crime Boss: Rockay City aims to deliver an over-the top Hollywood blockbuster gaming experience.

The game places you in the titular Rockay City during the 1990s. After the previous crime boss falls, rival gang leaders battle it out across the city with aspirations of being the next underworld kingpin. You can blast into Crime Boss: Rockay City tomorrow when it comes to PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S and PC.

Sifu (Mar. 28)

Sifu is an action game developed and published by Sloclap. The game offers realistic and tight Kung Fu combat mechanics as you embark on a path for revenge. The game sees you take on the role of a martial artist hoping to bring down a group of assassins who killed your family.

Though you have no allies and countless enemies, you do possess a magical amulet that brings you back to life every time you die. However, the catch is that whenever you respawn, your character ages and grows older. Though Sifu launched last year on other platforms, Xbox players can get their hands on it tomorrow.

Terra Nil (Mar. 28)

Terra Nil is a simulation game where you can transform a barren wasteland into a thriving and balanced ecosystem. Developed by Free Lives and published by Devolver Digital, the game places you in a lifeless world and tasks you with rejuvenating the land to become a thriving environment.

Throughout the game, you’ll need to purify the soil, clean the oceans, plant trees and ultimately reintroduce wildlife without leaving a trace. In addition, the game offers tons of replayability by procedurally generating new maps each playthrough to give you something different each time. Terra Nil comes to PC, iOS and Android tomorrow.

The Last of Us Part I (Mar. 28)

For those of you excited to revisit Joel and Ellie’s gritty and heartfelt story on PC, the wait is nearly over. Naughty Dog and PlayStation Studios take us back to the origins of The Last of Us with a complete redesign of the original. Although the original story will remain intact, the remake promises to improve on many technical aspects of the game. The next-gen remake will feature modern control updates, improved graphics and modern accessibility features.

Overall, the new game hopes to serve as the definitive version of The Last of Us by retelling the original critically-acclaimed story with gameplay more akin to Part II. While it first hit PlayStation 5 last year, Naughty Dog and PlayStation Studios are bringing The Last of Us Part I to PC tomorrow.

Will you survive to tell the tale? You can dive into Dredge when it swims onto PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC this Thursday.

The Last Worker (Mar. 30)

Though Kurt enjoyed working for the same company his entire life, a group of activists ask him to dismantle the corporate giant from the inside, testing his loyalty.
