BAT­MAN: ARKHAM KNIGHT

AT THE END OF BAT­MAN: ARKHAM CITY, THE JOKER IS (SPOIL­ERS!) DEAD AND GOTHAM IS SAVED, SO OL’ POINTY EARS CAN SPEND THE REST OF HIS DAYS RE­LAX­ING ON A BEACH, GET­TING FAT AND DRINK­ING TEQUILA, RIGHT? WRONG. HERE COME THE SCARE­CROW AND THE ARKHAM KNIGHT (OOH, NEW CHARACTER) TO RUIN POOR BRUCE’S EX­TENDED HOL­I­DAY. TIME TO STRAP ON THE SUIT (LOOK­ING MORE LIKE HIGH-TECH AR­MOUR THAN EVER BE­FORE) AND REV UP THE BAT­MO­BILE (YES, YOU GET TO DRIVE THE UL­TI­MATE SET OF WHEELS THIS TIME).

METAL GEAR SOLID V: THE PHAN­TOM PAIN

ONE OF THE MOST EC­CEN­TRIC AND BRIL­LIANT GAMING FRAN­CHISES IS GO­ING OPEN WORLD. JOIN SNAKE (NOW VOICED BY KIEFER SUTHER­LAND) AND A HOST OF OTHER BIZARRE CHAR­AC­TERS, AS THEY WEAR IN­EX­PLI­CA­BLY SKIMPY OUT­FITS AND SPOUT CRYP­TIC DI­A­LOGUE THROUGH HOUR-LONG CUT SCENES THAT CAN’T BE SKIPPED. AC­TU­ALLY THAT SOUNDS PRETTY DIRE, BUT WE’RE SURE WHEN IT AR­RIVES IT WILL BE AMAZ­ING. PS4, X1, PS3, X360, KON­AMI.JP OUT TBC

HOME­FRONT: THE REVO­LU­TION

THE ORIG­I­NAL HOME­FRONT HAD A TER­RIFIC AND GEN­UINELY UN­NERV­ING PREMISE – WHAT IF NORTH KOREA IN­VADED THE UNITED STATES AND YOU WERE FORCED TO GO REDDAWN ALL OVER THEM? UN­FOR­TU­NATELY, DE­SPITE SOME MEM­O­RABLE MO­MENTS, THE GAME’S LIN­EAR NA­TURE AND IR­RI­TAT­ING GLITCHES UN­DER­MINED MUCH OF ITS PO­TEN­TIAL. FROM WHAT WE’VE SEEN, HOME­FRONT: THE REVO­LU­TION IS SHAP­ING UP TO BE MUCH BET­TER. PC, PS4, X1, HOME­FRONT.COM OUT TBC

THE OR­DER 1886

EN­TER AN AL­TER­NATE HIS­TORY, WHERE AD­VANCED WEAPONRY IS USED ON THE STREETS OF VIC­TO­RIAN LONDON TO BAT­TLE REBELS, AS WELL AS SOME­THING MORE SIN­IS­TER AND LESS HU­MAN. WITH JAW-DROP­PING GRAPH­ICS AND AN IN­VEN­TIVE ARSE­NAL, THE OR­DER 1886 RE­MINDS US EVER SO SLIGHTLY OF A CLASSIER, BET­TER,

GEARS OF WAR. PS4, AU.PLAYSTA­TION.COM OUT FE­BRU­ARY 20

THE WITCHER 3: WILD HUNT

AS YOU MAY HAVE NO­TICED, HERE AT T3 WE JUST CAN’T GET ENOUGH OF OPEN WORLD GAMES.THE SOONER THE

WITCHER3 AR­RIVES, THE SOONER WE CAN IM­MERSE OUR­SELVES IN ONE OF THE MOST EN­TIC­ING ONES WE’VE SEEN. THE GAME’S TER­RAIN IS AS STUN­NING AS IT IS DI­VERSE, AND IF YOU WERE DIS­AP­POINTED BY THE LACK OF SAIL­ING IN AS­SAS­SIN’S CREED UNITY, THEN THIS MAY BE THE SUB­STI­TUTE YOU WERE LOOK­ING FOR. PC, PS4, X1, THEWITCHER.COM OUT FE­BRU­ARY 24

MAD MAX

NO, IT’S NOT A MOVIE TIE-IN – NEI­THER THE ORIG­I­NAL MEL GIB­SON CLAS­SIC NOR THE UP­COM­ING TOM HARDY VE­HI­CLE – BUT MAX HAS US QUITE EX­CITED FOR HIS OPEN WORLD (THERE WE GO AGAIN) RUM­BLE IN THE DESERT. EX­PECT LOTS OF CARS, CRASHES AND OUT­FITS THAT LOOK LIKE THEY CAME FROM AN S&M PAR­LOUR. AND HE WILL TALK WITH AN AUS­TRALIAN AC­CENT. TOO BLOODY RIGHT.
