With the growing popularity of realistic warfare titles such as Chivalry 2 and Isonzo, it is no surprise that some of the most complex, intricate military games such as Company of Heroes 3 are making their way to the most cutting-edge of consoles.
Previously only confirmed for launch on PC, thanks to a new partnership between Spitfire Interactive and Daedalic Entertainment, Capes will now also be coming to console - Xbox, PlayStation and Switch.
Square Enix are on a bit of a roll. They've recently dropped the Worldslayer expansion to Outriders, are providing players the opportunity to get their powerwash on in PowerWash Simulator and are fast moving forward with the countdown to Star Ocean The Divine Force. But they've got many fingers in many pies, and come this September Square will be releasing an all-new strategy RPG to the world - The DioField Chronicle.
Some hybrid game genres work well when on paper they absolutely shouldn’t. Others are so well suited to each other you are surprised when it doesn’t happen more often. That was the case with Thea: The Awakening that fused turn-based strategy in with a card game. It worked and was rightly praised. Today sees the sequel releasing. Thea 2: The Shattering is available now on Xbox.
Even as a free-to-play game, Magic Nations would have stunk. It has a Scrooge-like approach to rewarding you: it’s a thin trail of breadcrumbs to some slightly larger breadcrumbs. But Magic Nations is £12.49, which gets you a mediocre card game strapped to a microtransaction system that EA would have dismissed.
You probably already know if Warhammer 40,000: Battlesector is going to be for you or not, but if you like a bit of turn-based strategy and fancy playing a game that is already critically acclaimed, you can now do so on Xbox and PlayStation - via Game Pass if you really wish.
There have been card games to explore dungeons, card games to “Catch ‘em all”, even card games to get you drunk before a night out (my personal favourite). Magic Nations – Strategy Card Game arrives today on Xbox to introduce a new way to play with cards. How about a card game where you can conquer an entire fantasy world?
We're no strangers to seeing critically acclaimed games roll from one format to another, but after picking up some serious love on PC and Nintendo Switch in recent times, the minimalist strategic calls of GrizzlyGames' and Coatsink's city-builder ISLANDERS Console Edition has made a move onto Xbox and PlayStation.
