New This Week in Video Games (4/26 – 5/2)

by Dean James

This week surprisingly boasts one of the largest lineups of new releases we’ve had of any single week this year, but it is definitely a case of quantity over quality. There are very few games of note this week, with most of the big name games being ports of previous releases.

State of Decay: Year One Survival Edition is definitely the biggest release of the week, though it is still a port of the last-gen game being brought over to current-gen. Broken Age is finally coming to PlayStation 4 and PS Vita as well, after a release prior on PC. WWE 2K15 was just announced for PC last week and it’s already arriving this week as a Steam exclusive supposedly.

The last release of major note is the latest Call of Duty DLC for PS4, PS3, and PC after previously coming to Xbox platforms. There are a ton of PC games coming as well of the indie variety, but still might be worth checking out to see if any catch your interest.
