The new system offers Warhammer: Chaosbane Slayer Edition with remastered graphics and all the DLC collected as well as a new Witch Hunter class. The player can choose between six character classes and explore the first action RPG to take place in the Warhammer Fantasy Battles world. Warhammer: Chaosbane Slayer Edition is considered a decent upgrade on the new system by Louis Edwards of PlaystationStationLifeStyle. He comments, “Developer Eko Software has done a decent job with the 4K graphics and textures for Warhammer: Chaosbane Slayer Edition and an even better job of utilizing the powerful PS5’s SSD to almost entirely eliminate load times.”

Watch Dogs: Legion

Help them clear their name after being framed for bombings and free the citizens of a dystopian London from an oppressive private military company that has turned their home into a surveillance state.

The latest game in the franchise includes 14 different locations ranging from Kenya to Japan as well as community game modes and a customizable Club system. Jacob Hull of PushSquare says “WRC 9 is a challenging simulator that rewards the patient but committed fan.”

Yakuza: Like a Dragon

Yakuza-Like-a-Dragon

Delayed indefinitely in JapanYakuza: Like a Dragon is the eighth main release RPG game in the Yakuza series. This Sega game introduces a new main character, Ichiban Kasuga, who is locked up for 18 years and betrayed by his former boss. Now, he’s on a mission to become a hero.  A big difference in Yakuza: Like a Dragon from the previous games is the combat system. Instead of the traditional real-time beat ’em up approach of Yakuza, this game is a turn-based RPG. This allows you to play as multiple characters at once and unlock a variety of bizarre and memorable party assists.

Manage your resources carefully in this kingdom management RPG. Play as King Eryk in the medieval kingdom Davern. Choose when to help the petitioners who ask for your aid and when to conserve your resources. Inspired by Slavic folklore, the world is inhabited by monsters and the arcane. In addition to your resources, you’ll be tasked with managing your military, including generals, witches, and hunters. Game Informer’s Kimberly Wallace comments that “I enjoyed Yes, Your Grace’s tense decision making, but sometimes it tries too hard to ensure the player fails.”
