Top New Games Releasing On Switch, PS4, Xbox One, And PC This Month — May 2019

This episode of New Releases takes a look at the whole month of May, and things are getting a bit spooky with the Castlevania Anniversary Collection and Nintendo Switch ports of Resident Evil 1, 4, and 0. You can also conquer China in Total War: Three Kingdoms or explore a post-apocalyptic world of Rage 2. There’s also a cheerier game for the whole family to enjoy: Team Sonic Racing.

Rage 2 — May 14

The world of Rage 2 is overrun with mutants and ruled by a group known as the authority. As Walker, you can lay waste to both of these factions with guns and powerful Nanotrite abilities. You can also drive any vehicle you see in the open world, opening up plenty of roadkill opportunities.

Total War: Three Kingdoms — May 23

Available on: PC

The long-running strategy series is headed to China for the first time, where 12 different factions can battle for control.

It’s not that simple, though, as the generals you choose create certain limitations for the types of troops you command during battle.
