Xbox Store Today: Dead By Daylight, MXGP 3, Dungeon Defenders II, more

Welcome to today’s Xbox Games Store update… Today, Microsoft has added monsters, motorcycles, and a free-to-play “Action Tower Defense” game to their digital storefront.

The monsters are courtesy of Dead By Daylight, which is now available to download for the Xbox One. The multiplayer game features the ever-popular 4v1 setup, as one player is thrust into the role of “The Killer,” and four others attempt to flee as “The Survivors.”

Also available to download today is MXGP 3, a new motorcycle racing sim for the Xbox One from Milestone. The third game in the series features all 18 tracks from the 2016 MXGP and MX2 seasons. Players will also get the chance to make their rider unique with a full set of customization options.

Finally today, Dungeon Defenders II is a free-to-play “Action Tower Defense” game for the Xbox One that asks players to defend their dungeon from the armies of the Old Ones.

More information about all of these games (and the rest of today’s new releases) can be found after the break. (more…)

PS Store This Week: Nex Machina, Dead By Daylight, MXGP 3, more

Now that the 2017 E3 Expo is in the rearview mirror, we can look forward to a big new PlayStation Store update…

This week, Housemarque has teamed up with the legendary Eugene Jarvis to bring Nex Machina to the PS4. The twin-stick shooter takes place in a dystopian future where machines have taken over and mankind must fight back. Sounds like the perfect playground for the creator of Robotron 2084 and Smash TV.

Also available this week is Dead by Daylight, a multiplayer game for the PS4 where one players controls a deranged Killer, and four others attempt to escape their gruesome fate as the Survivors. It’ll be joined on Friday by Get Even, a first-person puzzler from Bandai Namco that plays with reality.

Finally, racing onto the PS4 this week is MXGP 3, the latest motorcycle racing sim from Milestone; and Final Fantasy XIV: Stormblood, a new expansion for Square Enix’s MMORPG.

You can learn more about all of these games (and a few other new releases) after the break. (more…)

New Retail Releases: Ever Oasis, Runbow Pocket, Dead By Daylight, More

Nintendo is back at the top of the New Retail Release report this week with another new game for their handheld, as well as a handful of new third party titles for their surging pair of systems.

Ever Oasis is a brand new action RPG from Koichi Ishii, the creator of the Mana series. Players will need to venture out into the desert and protect (and rebuild) the last safe oasis in the world. If you own a New 3DS, you’ll also be able to pick up 13AM’s Runbow Pocket: Deluxe Edition this week. The platform racer was originally released for the Wii U in 2015, and this new portable edition includes the base game and all the previously-released downloadable content.

Speaking of platformers, Nicalis will bring Cave Story+ to the Switch with upgraded high definition graphics, seven game modes, and 15 levels to explore.

Elsewhere in your local game store you’ll find Dead By Daylight, an asymmetrical horror simulator for the PS4 and Xbox One. One player will be able to take control of the Killer, while others will fight to live as Survivors. One… two… a copyright-adjacent boogeyman is coming for you…

A faster getaway would probably be available to the drivers in MXGP 3, the latest motorcycle racing game from Square Enix and Milestone. MXGP 3 will be available for the PC, PS4, and Xbox One, and players will be able to race through the complete 2016 season.

And speaking of Square Enix, the Japanese publisher will expand their MMORPG this week with the launch of Final Fantasy XIV: Stormblood for the PC and PS4. The expansion will include a variety of new content including new Raids, new Jobs, and an increased Level Cap.

Another Japanese publisher, NIS America, will also release a new RPG this week. God Wars: Future Past is coming to the PS4 and Vita, and its a tactical RPG that combies traditional Japanese folklore with a unique art style based on watercolor and wood carving art.

Finally this week, a Retail Edition of Cities: Skylines will be available for the Xbox One exclusively through GameStop.
