God of War will mark the return of Kratos Image: Sony
While March is set to end with a bang for gamers with the release of Ubisoft's Far Cry 5, temperatures promise to keep soaring in April with the official release of God of War, one of the most anticipated games releasing this year. However, the return of Kratos isn't the only highlight of the coming month, with other interesting releases also lined up.
T2 Online takes a look at some of the big upcoming game releases for April.
God of War
Release date: April 20
The game, which first released on PS2 in 2005, became a huge fan favourite and Sony went on to release as many as seven games, including three main titles, and made it into a franchisee. Now, the eighth game is coming on March 20, 2018, exclusively on PS4. The latest game is based on Norse mythology, unlike the first seven games that were based on Greek Mythology. The upcoming game will feature an ageing Kratos and his son. The storyline is set to be more emotional and revolve a lot around the father-son relationship. The gameplay looks stunning from the early impressions, and we might very well have another blockbuster on our hands.
Yakuza 6: The Song of Life
Release date: April 17
The game looks loaded with action just like its earlier instalments. The final game of the franchise serves a crime story with a lot of drama. The game is based on Japan's Underground and introduces a lot of new heroes and villains in the storyline. The main protagonist is Kiryu, who is on the search for revenge on criminals after a hit-and-run attack on his stepdaughter Haruka. If you like street fighting visuals and hand-to-hand combat, then this game is just for you. The game is exclusive to Sony PlayStation 4.
Assetto Corsa Ultimate Edition
Release date: April 20
Racing fans will be looking forward to the Assetto Corsa Ultimate Edition, which is coming in April. There are 16 laser scanned circuits and over 178 cars to choose from. Porsche to Lamborghini, the game will put you behind the wheels of carefully tuned machines, tailored to mimic the real thing as closely possible. This is a racing simulator, and there is heavy focus on realism, rather than over-the-top gameplay elements, unlike most other racing games available currently. The game will release on both Xbox One and PS4.
