With a fair amount of 2014 already behind us, it’s time to step into Summer and look ahead to big events like E3 and Comic Con, and hardware like the Oculus Rift DK2. Until then, developers continue to pump out current and next-gen titles alike. Let’s take a look at what’s coming in the month of May!
Kicking off the month is Tesla Effect: A Tex Murphy Adventure for PC and Mac, the latest installment in Chris Jones’ epic indie detective series which spans over two decades. Shortly thereafter, Capybara’s reality-bending arcade title Super Time Force blasts onto Xbox One consoles and Xbox Live Arcade on May 14th. Next up is Wolfenstein: The New Order on the 20th for a slew of current and next-gen systems, and the first game in the series to be developed by someone other than Id Software. Closing out the month of May is Ubisoft’s much anticipated Watch Dogs, available on the 27th for several major systems.
