In Gods Will Fall, you are humanity’s last hope against the torturous rule of gods 

Source: Deep Silver

Launched on January 29, 2021, by publisher Deep Silver and developer Clever Beans, Gods Will Fall is a dark fantasy action-adventure game where you play as a Celtic warrior, on their way to overthrow the tyrannical gods. 

The gods’ torturous rule over humanity has lasted for millennia and slow and merciless death awaits those who do not serve and blindly worship them. To sever the gods’ callous grip on humanity, you and your eight-warrior clan will have to rise up, venture into each gods’ hellish realm and face legions of horrific beasts and minions that dwell there.

Your clan will be made up of warriors of every size and each one is equipped with their own weapon type, so it is important that you choose your next hero wisely. Success is hard-earned and you will unlock unique skills, weapons, and items, but failure will see your warrior imprisoned and screaming for salvation.

While the pick up and play combat style is easy to learn, it is hard to master and a massive challenge awaits all who venture into the realm of the gods. Speaking of these realms, each path you tread and each door you upon within them will be different from the last, ensuring a brand-new tale unfolds every playthrough.

The base game for Gods Will Fall is now available for free on the Epic Games Store. For even more content, you can purchase the Valley of the Dormant Gods DLC, which adds a new god, weapon class and three new skills and items to the game.

Go on a Christmas themed adventure in platformer Scarf

Christmas may have come and gone but you definitely shouldn’t miss this gorgeous Christmas/Winter themed single-player adventure platformer by publisher Handygames and developer Uprising Studios, Scarf, which is available on the Epic Games Store, GOG and Steam.

Scarf is set in a gorgeous world and sees you heading off for an adventure with a shapeshifting dragon-shaped scarf to find its home and mother. You will have to solve all kinds of increasingly complex puzzles, overcome daunting obstacles and discover new places by using a wide variety of interesting mechanics and to follow the souls who stole the keys to the portal back home. 

The game is suitable for gamers of all ages, so you can take your time and immerse yourself in the gorgeous world that is accompanied by an adaptive orchestral score. There is also an alternate ending that awaits players who explore every nook and cranny of the world.

World Nations Game is a free-to-play MMO that is incredibly unique

SCLITIFY IT’s World Nations Game may sound more like a strategy game but it is actually a free-to-play online Massively Multiplayer Online (MMO) game where you can have your own virtual life. 

In this MMO, you start your life as a citizen assigned to a virtual country citizenship based on the choices you made when you joined the game. Each of these countries is named after an actual country in the real world. From there on out, you are then able to buy vehicles, items, properties, open a political party, fight in international battlefields, participate in races and take part in special agent fights between agents.

World Nations Game is essentially a game that melds features of RPGs and strategy games so you can have fun in various ways. You just need to decide how to invest your time and what you want to do as an activity in the game. To experience this interesting game, you can download it for free from Steam.

Heaven Dust 2 is a Resident Evil-inspired game made by fans for fans of the classics

If you have been pining for survival horror game that is more like the classic Resident Evil games, then you need to check out Heaven Dust 2 developed by two-person team, One Gruel Studio and published by Indienova.

Much like the classic titles from Capcom, Heaven Dust 2 features exploration, action, puzzles, and resource management. In it, you play as a character who has just woken up from a cryogenic pod deep inside a research base and find yourself in a living hell, surrounded by zombies. Now, your main goal is to survive and eventually escape.

Throughout the game, you will have to solve various puzzles and engage in epic boss fights where you will have to plan your strategy, target weak points and destroy defences. There are two escape routes that will lead you to two different endings.

Heaven Dust 2 is now available for purchase from Steam and from now until January 13, comes with a 10% launch discount.

Another iconic villain from Ubisoft’s Far Cry series is set to return on January 11. This time, you will embody Pagan Min, who antagonised players in Far Cry 4, in a brand-new experience inspired by the roguelite genre taking place in the depths of the villain’s troubled psyche. 

Pagan: Control will blend intense action and storytelling, giving you a unique opportunity to explore Pagan’s mind, learn more about his past, and face off against familiar faces as he struggles to break free from his cycle of guilt and regrets.

Much like the Vaas: Insanity DLC, Pagan: Control will be available through the Ubisoft Store and the Epic Games Store or for those who own the Season Pass or are subscribed to Ubisoft+.

The third and final DLC will be Joseph: Collapse, where you will take control and dive into the mind of Far Cry 5’s villain, Joseph Seed.
