After Pillars of Eternity 2 and Total War Sagas: Thrones of Britannia slipped into May, April is actually a little bit tragic for big game releases outside of the PlayStation 4. Owners of Sony’s console are in for a couple of absolute treats though; Yakuza 6 has received fantastic reviews and the early buzz surround God of War suggests the reboot should be excellent. For PC gamers, redemption may come in the form of Paradox’s Battletech, although the lack of an official release date does make it a doubt for this month.

If you’re an indie developer, I haven’t seen a better month in a long, long while to release your game on Steam.
