Mass Effect: Andromeda
The latest thrilling installment in the Mass Effect saga takes you far beyond the Milky Way, to a place where you are the invading alien force. As the leader of a squad of explorers, you seek to establish a New Home. But your arrival isn't entirely welcome, and you can look forward to waging war against a variety of fearsome creatures in destructible environments, as well as using all-new weapons and abilities that enable the most engrossing combat the franchise has yet seen. Mass Effect: Andromeda boasts strikingly detailed sci-fi visuals and extraterrestrial worlds that are truly enhanced in 4K HDR.
Resident Evil 7
Powered by the powerful RE Engine, Resident Evil 7 introduces players to a fresh nightmare that serves as a new beginning for the venerated survival-horror franchise. A wicked plot is unfolding in the deep south, and you'll have to get to the heart of it if you're to stand a chance of rekindling a relationship with an old flame. As you butt heads with an array of monstrosities, as your psychological safety nets fail you one after another, you may start to wonder who or what you can trust in this terrifying world where predictability is a myth. The game’s bloodcurdling action and suspense is only heightened when experienced on a 4K HDR TV.
When Epic Games announced it was working on a MOBA of its own, people knew to expect something special, and Paragon delivers in a big way. The game's collection of powerful cards puts you in control and allows you to turn the tide of battle in a split-second. Keep in mind, though, that it's all too easy to find yourself on the losing end of such an arrangement. Only constant vigilance and a strategic mind will allow your forces to ultimately win the day... and then do it again in the "just one more match" that inevitably follows.
Shadow Warrior 2
In Shadow Warrior 2, your name is Lo Wang, and people usually explain what you do with the "corporate shogun" label. That doesn't sound nearly as exciting as the reality, though, which involves the devastating combination of guns, blades, magic and wits you wield against any who dare cross your path. As demonic hordes threaten to overwhelm the world, you set out across procedurally-generated wastelands to right the world's wrongs either alone or with as many as three other friends. Gather the gear that will hopefully ensure your survival when finally you go up against the greatest evil of all.
In Obduction, the spiritual successor to the enormously influential adventure game Myst, players are casts as a character who’s never heard of a place called Hunrath. But now, they know it as the alien world that surrounds them, after the inexplicable appearance of a strange artifact that dragged them across the universe. If they’re ever to return home, they must get to the bottom of the mystery that courses through this bizarre landscape. Obduction’s mysterious settings and foreboding atmosphere leave a lasting impression and make for a visual experience that’s really brought to life in 4K HDR.
