For console gamers, when spring rolls around, that usually means plenty of big triple-A titles being released by major publishers. With the huge amount of games available, it might be a bit overwhelming to tackle them all. Fortunately, we’ve narrowed down the 4 big games that console gamers definitely needs to play to get their spring gaming started!
Mass Effect: Andromeda
Explore the new frontier of outer space with Mass Effect: Andromeda, where you take control of Ryder, a Pathfinder tasked with finding a new home for the Andromeda initiative. The newest chapter of the Mass Effect series, Andromeda takes you through a sprawling sci-fi action RPG where you’ll encounter mysterious alien civilization and a looming threat from the “Kett”.
The game features an all improved combat system and an impressive 60+ hours worth of gameplay, so if you’re looking for space opera to sink your teeth into, Mass Effect: Andromeda should be on your list.
Zelda: Breath of the Wild
If you somehow managed to nab yourself a Nintendo Switch, then you definitely need to pick up Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Widely regarded as one of the best Zelda ever released, Breath of the Wild takes Link to the open world of Hyrule where players can explore and discover plenty of amazing moments.
With plenty of accolades and rave reviews, Breath of the Wild should hold Nintendo Switch owners over until they release Mario Odyssey.
Horizon: Zero Dawn
Sony’s newest franchise, Horizon: Zero Dawn, proved to be quite a hit with critics and gamers alike, and deservedly so as Guerrilla Games’ first foray into open-world is nothing short of spectacular. With amazing combat and a sprawling open-world that’s filled with giant robot dinosaurs and robot animals, Horizon: Zero Dawn is a must-have for any PlayStation 4 owner.
We’d be pretty surprised if Guerrilla Games didn’t make a sequel to Aloy’s adventure in the futuristic world of Horizon: Zero Dawn.
Persona 5 is the highly anticipated sequel to the much-beloved JRPG series by Atlus and any true JRPG fan will know that jumping into a Persona means losing hundred hours into the game. Those new to the series can expect a deep combat system, an engaging storyline, snazzy visuals, and a huge digital Tokyo to explore in.
Based on the reviews that have come up, it’s safe to say that Persona 5 is another hit for Atlus that gamers should play.
The beginning of spring means the beginning of a new year with awesome games and while there are plenty more big titles coming on the horizon, these 4 big spring games should keep you occupied until the next big release.
