The GameAxis Playlist (November 2018): PlayStation 4

Welcome to the first instalment of our monthly game release snapshot for major gaming platforms! In this article we’ll be showing 5 of the top-shelf PS4 games we want this November!

Let’s have a look:

  • The Forest (6 Nov)

The survival horror genre is expanding at an alarming rate in the past few years, owing to the likes of masterpieces like Five Nights at Freddy’s, Dead by Daylight and Slender: The Eight Pages. This month, we’re featuring The Forest, which is what you get if Outlast and Minecraft had a kid. Comes complete with cannibals and no blocky bits. Best of luck.

  • World of Final Fantasy Maxima (6 Nov)

Chibi Final Fantasy? Yes please!

As the twins Reynn and Lann, embark on a journey of self-discovery and…*insert cheesy fairy tale values here*. Basically, you get to transform into chibi versions of beloved Final Fantasy characters, defeat monsters and collect them for monster towers. There’s also a minigame where you can chill out and fish with Noctis. Nice!

  • GRIP (6 Nov)

There’s a reason GRIP comes with the tag “Combat Racing”. Think Mario Kart, but way more brutal. Destroy environments, cars and friendships as you race along the walls and ceilings of the 22 available courses.  Featuring impressive physics, exciting kamikaze crashes and more close shaves than a crappy razor, GRIP should keep you and your pals at each other’s throats for a while.

  • Darksiders 3 (27 Nov)

I need this game, and I need it yesterday. Fury, the third of the Four Horsemen, makes her debut in the latest game of the franchise. Honestly though, there are few things that look more badass than a sassy, whip-cracking Nephilim.

  • RIDE 3 (30 Nov)

Rev up those engines and hang on to those handlebars! RIDE 3 zooms into stores at the end of November, featuring over 230 bikes from 30 manufacturers, the largest in the series to date. Immersion wise, the game includes single-player story campaigns for each manufacturer, track and bike category, with magnificent graphics as the icing on top. What’s not to like?

Dates are correct at time of publishing.
