With April behind us and Q2 2013 in full swing, May looks to be an exciting month as well, bringing several big name and indie releases – not to mention a rumored Xbox-related reveal from Microsoft on the 21st. There’s a lot to look forward to in May, so let’s get into it!
May kicks off with Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon for Windows and Xbox Live, indie hit Fez for Windows, and Might & Magic Heroes VII expansion Shades of Darkness, also for Windows. The much anticipated Metro: Last Light finally drops mid-May for PS3, Xbox 360 and Windows; and Fast & Furious: Showdown races across all major systems shortly thereafter. Finally, the month closes out with GRID 2 for Windows, PS3 and Xbox 360; and classics Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D and The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Seasons and Oracle of Ages find their way onto the 3DS.
