We start the month in earnest today (5), with the launch of The Outlast Trials. The title is a prequel to the first two titles in the franchise, exploring strange experiments that took place during the Cold War. The game has some differences compared to its predecessors, such as a character customization system and cooperative multiplayer for up to four people, although it can be played entirely individually.

It has been in Early Access since May last year exclusively on PC, but its final version will also arrive on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X and S.

Top Racer Collection – March 7

On the 7th, we have a nostalgic launch. Top Racer Collection is a collection that brings together the Top Gears 16 bits in one version. They are Top Racer, Top Race 2, Top Racer 3000 e Top Racer Crossroads – Horizon Chasethe latter inspired by the Brazilian racing game Aquiris.

Now, you may be wondering why the name is different from what we know. Well, in Japan, the franchise is called Top Racer and as time went by, they ended up choosing this name to unify the entire series of games worldwide. Top Racer Collection will be released for PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X and S and Nintendo Switch.

Hi-Fi RUSH – March 18

On March 18th, we will have an Xbox exclusive coming to PlayStation 5. Hi-Fi Rush is a rhythmic hack and slash developed by Tango Gameworks in which we control Chai, a young man who aspires to be a rockstar who accepts to be part of the Armstrong Project, from Vandelay Industries, exchanging his normal arm for a robotic one. It turns out that, in the middle of the process, an MP3 player is implanted in his chest and Vandelay’s robots begin to chase him, meaning that Chai now has to fight for his life and discover what is behind this project.

As said, it is a rhythmic hack and slash, so attacks must be executed to the beat of the music to be more effective and create combos. The soundtrack is absolutely packed with great tracks, like 1,000,000 by Nine Inch Nails, Lonely Boy by The Black Keys, and even Wolfgang’s Fifth Symphony.

On the day of the launch of a free update for all platforms, called Arcade Challenge, which will add a roguelite mode and another that increases the beats per minute of the music up to 200 bpm.

Like most horror games released in recent years, the game will have an over-the-shoulder camera and will feature combat involving firearms and bladed weapons. A highlight of the game is that its script was written by Mikael Hedberg, who was the screenwriter for SOMA e Amnesia.

Alone in the Dark will be released for PC, PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X and S.
