Play news The 8 Steam releases you must not miss this week

A new week begins and it rhymes with new games to discover. And one of the best platforms to do this is of course Steam. Every 53 minutes, a game is released on the Valve platform. Suffice it to say that it is necessary to make a small sorting. That’s why we’re once again offering you a selection of Steam releases you can watch this week.

Soda crisis

Do you need to start the week with something dynamic to get you started? Team Soda teams up with Bilibili (FIST: Forged In Shadow Torch) to bring us a side-scrolling shooting game where speed and precision are the key to survival. Soda Crisis, from its small name, puts you in the shoes of a strangely small character equipped with specially developed technologies. Together with your combat techniques, this equipment will allow you to face the dangers of the futuristic world of Soda Crisis and accomplish your mission. What is it ? You will find out in the game. All we know now is that this is a rescue mission of utmost importance that only you can accomplish. During the Steam Neo Party, the game was revealed in a demo that caught our attention. The latter is also available if you ever feel like trying out the game before going to the checkout.

If it’s more tranquility that suits you, the independent adventure Hanging Gardens Interactive will probably be enough for you. In Sonority’s amazing universe, everything is calm and quiet … maybe even a little too much. Silence reigns in this world. So much so that the music has become a kind of magic that Esther, our main character, masters. Accompanied by a talking raccoon, the young girl goes in search of ancestral knowledge, lost melodies and works from the past. But the way to find them is not accessible to everyone. Blocked by riddles of all kinds, Esther will have to use her pan tubes to solve them and continue her quest. By using sheet music as gameplay elements, Sonority offers us a special approach that will delight both musicians and aficionados. If the puzzles can be solved acoustically, the developers promise us that no prior musical knowledge is required to try out their title.

My time at Sandrock

Do you know My Time At Portia? This country life simulator halfway between Animal Crossing, Harvest Moon and Dark Cloud 2 invited you to build your small town in idyllic surroundings. The title had some success, both commercially and critically, and eventually managed to make a name for itself in the market. So much so that Pathea Games has decided to re-enter for a new title: My Time at Sandrock. The project was launched on kickstarter in October 2020 and thrilled potential players who were quick to explode the donation goals. But how does this new title stand out from My Time at Portia? First it takes place in a more desert environment where new characters develop (about thirty new NPCs). Add to that some small news like the possibility of marriage between players, a mini-game with buggy races or even an extra city, and you get My Time at Sandrock, which launches in early access this week.

Redout 2

Simulations of quiet little lives, not your thing? Do you need it to move and pulsate? This is good because the fastest racing game in the universe is back. The popular Redout, released in 2016, finally gets a sequel, and the least we can say is that it promises. Like its predecessor, Redout 2 is intended as a tribute to arcade racing games. It must be said that with its neon lights and adrenaline-filled sensations, the title has something that makes your nostalgia speak. Based on the principle of anti-gravity, the game published by Saber Interactive is reminiscent of classics in the genre such as F-Zero and Wipeout. In terms of content, this new opus offers us a single player campaign and a competitive multiplayer mode that can gather 12 players online on the same circuit. Of course, you can also count on a strong customization of your vehicle and a dynamic soundtrack (Giorgio Moroder, Zardonic, etc.) to accompany your most dazzling speed peaks.

Age of Empires III: Definitive Edition – Knights of the Mediterranean

It’s time to tell you about a wealth of strategy games: Age of Empires. Almost two years ago, fans of the saga could get their fingers in Age of Empires III: Definitive Edition. This improved version of the 2005 game offered fans of the license a more complete experience than ever with the base game, of course, but also all the expansions released so far. Suffice it to say that in terms of content, Age of Empires III: Definitive Edition already had enough to make its competitors pale. And since we never have enough, the game even regularly offers additional expansions. After especially The African Royals, it’s the Knights of the Mediterraneans’ turn to join the party for more and more news. On the program we find, of course two new civilizations (Malta and Italy) and the introduction of historical maps, but also a new state of play. With the name Tycoon, it aims to be more user-friendly and easily accessible, emphasizing the economic side more than the military aspect.

Sniper Elite 5

We continue on the classics with the new opus of Sniper Elite, soberly titled Sniper Elite 5. Nearly six years after its predecessor, the title arrives this week and invites us once again to blow up the skulls of evil Nazis. To do this you will find good old Karl Fairburne. Basically, there are no drastic changes. This felt a little too much during our game session, which pushed us to attribute the title to a shy thing to see. But in terms of form, what does this Sniper Elite 5 have in store for us? Well, we already know that the game will offer a season ticket (included in the Deluxe version) with a focus on a new two-part campaign. We also learned that the title can be reviewed by two in online collaboration, and that a competitive mode, called Invasion, will also be in play. The latter will consist of interfering in another player’s campaign to kill him without any other trial.

Unexplored 2: The Wayfarer’s Legacy

This one will not speak to everyone. It must be said that Unexplored 2 is not really available at first glance, and not just because it is only available in English. Nevertheless, if you have already tried Unexplored first by name, you will not be out of place. Like its predecessor, it is a top-down action RPG with roguelit components. in the program? Dungeons to explore in the neck or infiltrated state thanks to Ludomotion’s know-how, which has already proven itself in the past. Note that individuals who have participated in the funding of the game have had access to it since 2019. And given the various feedbacks, it looks particularly good for this somewhat special open-world game. If you are curious to know if Unexplored 2 is made for you, you can try it out right now through a small demo. The perfect opportunity to decide before the game comes out this weekend
