New This Week in Video Games (5/3 – 5/9)

by Dean James


The new releases for gaming continue to be rather few and far between this week, with really only a few retail releases, neither of which are major sellers. The biggest release of the week is the digital exclusive Wolfenstein: The New Blood, a standalone prequel to The New Order, this time forgoing last-gen consoles entirely.

The very critically acclaimed Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor gets its own Game of the Year edition this week as well, with all of the game’s DLC included in one package. Project CARS may not release for consoles until next week, but it does arrive this Thursday for PC. There are also a number of other PC releases through Steam this week also.
