A Way Out was originally announced during last year’s E3 show, and it completely blew everybody away with how unique and innovative its concept was. The gaming industry had numerous cooperative titles, but almost all of them adopted the usual online co-op modes where you’re free to choose whether you want to play with a friend or not.

That’s why Blazing Griffin is channeling James Moriarty in Murderous Pursuits, a devillishly good looking assassination adventure in which cunning and camouflage are your best friends. Your aim is to silently slaughter your targets without revealing your identity. The one catch is, they’ll be plotting your doom at the same time.

In case you missed it, GTA Online is getting a pretty huge racing-themed overhaul. Last week, Rockstar Games generously doubled cash and RP in both Occupy Modes and Bunker Series, and it looks like the benevolent trend is about to continue. Right up until March 26, you’ll be able to join the Hotring Circuit — one of two new racing modes — with 30 other players in a gas-guzzling competition that also multiplies your RP and GTA$ by two. The Hotring Circuit is a classic throwback to GTA: Vice City and brings five new vehicles into the mix: Taipan, Declasse Hotring Sabre, Entity XXR, Vapid GB200 and Vulcar Fagaloa.
Bethesda has opened the window to a vibrant new chapter of The Elder Scrolls Online universe. In The Elder Scrolls Online: Summerset, the island home of the High Elves lowers its defences to allow foreigners like us entry for the first time since 1994’s The Elder Scrolls: Arena. But Queen Ayrenn’s cordial invitation is marred by a shadowy secret: Tamriel is under threat and needs your assistance to dismantle a Daedric plot. Summerset continues a legacy of award-winning storytelling by catering to both casuals and veterans. Previous ESO experience isn’t a prerequisite, and Summerset offers a quick tutorial to get you up to speed. Long time players can pick a fresh warrior, or bring existing characters into Summerset for a truly expansive adventure which eclipses even The Elder Scrolls Online: Morrowind‘s Vvardenfell in size.
