New games coming out in Australia this month: May 2016


Looking for the latest release video games in Australia? Then look no further than finder’s May 2016 release calendar.

We hope you like your action fast and explosive, because May 2016 is full of first-person shooters from some of the biggest names in game development. A fourth entry in the legendary Doom series leads the charge, built by genre pioneers id Software and new partner Bethesda (Fallout, Elder Scrolls). However, genre fans also have two new IPs to try out – Battleborn from Gearbox Software (Borderlands) and Overwatch from Blizzard Entertainment (World of Warcraft). A belated sequel to Homefront: The Revolution arrives as well, as does a prequel to a cult classic in Mirror’s Edge: Catalyst.

Strategy fans are well-served thanks to the arrival of Creative Assembly’s Total War: Warhammer on PC, and Fire Emblem: Conquest/Birthright on 3DS. But if you’re looking for a meaty adventure, there is no going past PS4 exclusive Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End. There’s plenty more joining these elite titles, just check out the calendar below and then get busy saving.
