The Surge PC, PS4, Xbox One Nioh and The Ringed City have increased our appetite for tough Souls – or Soulsinspired – outings, and The Surge will be our first opportunity to experience one in a sci-fi setting.

Little Nightmares PC, PS4, Xbox One A chance to run through a more polished version of the build we played for E302’ s cover feature reveals a more confident showing for the toe-curling Janitor and Six’s wonderfully tactile platforming.
Nier: Automata PC, PS4 Review code may not have arrived in time for this issue, but we’re by no means worried about the state of Platinum’s debut RPG.
