New games coming out in Australia this month: April 2016


Keeping track of the next big blockbuster experience is made simple using VG Finder’s calendar of upcoming video game release dates for Australia.

Amongst a batch of exciting indies and downloadable titles, April sees some significant blockbusters hit store shelves. Perhaps the most notable is Xbox One exclusive Quantum Break, developed by Remedy. The studio has a history of creating revolutionary new series, including Max Payne and Alan Wake. Wii U owners get to dive into the long-awaiting return of the Star Fox series, and PlayStation fans also get a trip down nostalgia lane complements of the re-imagining of the first Ratchet and Clank game to tie-in with the new film.Layered on top of that, we have a brilliant return to form for Codemasters with Dirt Rally, and arguably the stiffest challenge of the year in action-RPG Dark Souls III.Note: the Gears of War 4 multiplayer beta starts on April 18, and if you want access you need to have picked up Gears of War: Ultimate Edition on PC or Xbox One.
