New This Week in Video Games (4/3 – 4/9)

by Dean James


Virtual reality is finally here with the problematic launch of the Oculus Rift last week and now the release of the HTC Vive this week. With that it means we not only have our usual slate of games coming out, but also a barrage of different VR titles for PC as well.

The big AAA release of the week is Quantum Break for Xbox One and PC, while DiRT Rally comes out in retail for Xbox One and PS4. Besides that, most releases this week are digital only, except for things like the Assassin’s Creed Chronicles Trilogy for PS Vita.

PlayStation as always has a number of games out this week, with PS4 and PS Vita each getting a new release as a free title for PS Plus members.

As said above, VR is front and center this week with so many games coming out for PC that you can try out for the different headsets. This total will obviously go down in future weeks, as developers wanted to make sure to have a lot of them out for launch.

Check out the full list of new releases below of what you can expect to be released the week of April 3rd through April 9th.
