Spring 2017 PC Games Preview

Dirt 4 (June 6)

With Dirt: Rally in the rear view mirror (pun intended), Codemasters plans to release another installment in the main series. New tracks will be available across five locations, and you can drive more than 50 different cars. There’s also a new feature called “Your Stage” that will create custom tracks based on your route settings and the chosen location, which should add another layer of challenges when you try to get the best time on the course.

If you’re a newcomer to the series, you can check out the new “DiRT Academy,” which will teach you about different racing techniques. Once you’ve mastered the game’s driving mechanics, you can embark on your journey in Career Mode or try out a series of daily, weekly, and monthly challenges.

FFXIV: Stormblood (June 20)

The second expansion for Square Enix’s online role-playing game will increase the level cap to 70 and open access to new locations such as the city of Kugane--and, more importantly, the massive continent of Othard. In addition, you’ll have new jobs or roles to try out, specifically the Samurai and the Red Witch.

The expansion will also add new dungeons, an eight-player raid, and an alliance raid. You’ll also notice an increase in your overall inventory space, and find new recipes for crafting gear and items. Square Enix also mentioned that there will be changes to the battle system, although details on the subject were slim.

    Just a heads up for FFXIV Stormsblood, its Red Mage not Red Witch...

    Is it just me or does "What Remains of Edith Finch" look and sound similar to "Myst"? I hated that game so much...

    Dawn of War 3 is probably (but not definitely) going to be pretty bad. There is even good reason to believe that C.S. Goto is one of the lead creators for the game.

    God, Telltale's making another game? Their paint-by-numbers approach to game design is getting MIGHTY stale by now. Has been for years.

    A bunch of bland looking games, nothing new really. Same old, same old. It would be nice if some game devs went out on a limb and made something completely different, something a bit more interactive, a bit of voice recognition, characters you could talk to.

    Spring isn't until September?? Why not do Autumn first since that's next.

    They make too much money by rehashing the same stuff over and over, just replace the skins and story.

    There are some really good classic games that broke the mold and were truly great, but the money train is in what they have now. I would love to see a "The 7th Guest" kind of game, but more advanced.

    Very interesting, I'm surprised they were able to get Trilobyte to sell them the rights to do it. I do like that they ignore the 11th Hour in the story, that game was just odd and buggy.

    It will be interesting to see how the game ends up, but it looks like they have a lot of the right pieces to make it a good one.

    Not a single VR game? Come on, do your homework.

    Star Trek: Bridge Crew is set for release in May. Wilson's Heart is set for April 25. Fallout 4 VR may also drop right after E3.
