New games of May 2020
May 2020 | Amazon Games | Link | MMO
We played a bit of New World in 2019, and it's an interesting one—it doesn't seem 'revolutionary,' as so many MMOs brand themselves, but smartly-designed. At The Game Awards, Amazon revealed a new cinematic trailer and a release month: May 2020. Before the reveal, we had a chat with the game's director, which you can read here.
May 19 | inXile Entertainment | Link | CRPG
Wasteland 3 has been long in the works by inXile, but since their acquisition by Microsoft, the studio has likely been able to take its time to make it great. So far, Wasteland 3 looks like a refinement of the sequel's mechanics in a brand new setting: Colorado.
May 22 | Tripwire Interactive | Link | Shark-PG
