April 2018 was an amazing month for gamers with the release of the critically acclaimed God of War making it the talk of the month. Which makes us wonder what May could offer to us. Here are some of the big hitters!
Detroit: Become Human (PS4) – May 25
Let’s start the list with the big buzz from Quantic Dream, the studio behind Heavy Rain and Beyond: Two Souls. Expect a gripping storyline set in the future where androids with sophisticated AIs live alongside humans. However, some androids have evolved further and developed a desire to be treated as equals in the society. Your choices will affect the outcome of the story as well as your feels.
